Why we recommend
Escape to a cool villa with sublime views over the blue seas of Crete. Dream the hours away – gazing at the stunning Greek sunsets across the bay from the heated infinity pool or chilling out with a cocktail in the hot tub.
Sleeping up to 8 people, our villa is a perfect treat for all the family. While the adults relax by the pool or enjoy dining outdoors by the BBQ, the kids can keep themselves busy playing ping pong, table football or on the PlayStation.
Perched high on the cliffs over the bay of Souda near to Chania in Crete, Villa Akri (meaning the ‘Edge’) is a stunning, new, designer villa with gorgeous views over the valley and sea below.
Whether you are friends or family wishing to get together or you are planning a romantic holiday, the villa has been designed and equipped to cater for all your needs.
- 45 minutes from Chania airport
- 5 minutes from Kokkino Horio and the village of Plaka
- Ideally located between the historic Venetian cities of Chania and Rethymnon
- The ‘Secret Beach’ is a small secluded beach 800 meters from Kokkino Chorio
- the village of Almyrida has a lovely sandy beach and is abundant with seafront restaurants and shops. This beach also offers numerous watersports activities for those guests who are more adventurous, including, diving, paddle boarding, wind surfing and sailing.
- We highly recommend a day trip to the world-famous beaches and lagoons of Balos and Elafonisi that are an hour and a half away
