Domina Villas Location in Chania Crete

Traditionally a fishing village Almyrida, even with the addition of tourism over the years, retains a simple charm and a Cretan atmosphere. The resort nestles round a pretty bay with sandy beaches at either end of the village and a little harbour at its eastern end. You don’t see so many fishermen these days but village life still centres round the sea with tavernas, of which there is plenty of choice, lining the seafront, and cafes, mini markets and an enticing bakery scattered behind. For the more energetic kayaks, windsurfers and catamarans are available to hire from the beach.

Almyrida has all you need for a relaxing holiday, and it also makes a very convenient location for exploring Western Crete’s many attractions; the 18 km Samaria Gorge, Lake Kournas, the islands only freshwater lake, the historical 5th century archaeological site of Aptera and the wonderfully atmospheric Venetian harbour town of Chania can all be easily reached from here.

We think the Domina Houses are excellent value accommodation and a perfect choice for those who want either a relaxed beach based holiday or a convenient and comfortable base from which to explore this beautiful region of western Crete.
