For a number of years we have rented a villa in Crete via Alexandra/Almyra, both on a trip with friends before we had children and together with other families with children in recent years. Our rationale for choosing Almyra and Crete was that we experienced previous holidays to other destinations (for example the south of France) as overpriced and of a poor standard, as elements that we did not value as highly (beach -clubs, restaurants, etc.). We then got a tip from an acquaintance about Alexandra/Almyra and Crete, and tried this for the first time in 2012.

We have stayed at several villas, including Imperial, Daphne & Chloe, Celestine and Seacrete Seafront, and have been delighted with all of them. For us, the uniqueness of Almyra is several things; First and foremost, the quality of the villas is top class, and the pictures don’t lie in any way – you know what you’re getting. Much of the reason for this, we believe, is that Alexandra personally approves the villas against what she expects as standard.

Furthermore, the follow-up along the way is unique – we get a direct link to the rental car, good tips along the way for action and experiences, as well as offers for extra services that work very well (massage, chef etc.). Alexandra has also, without exception, visited us during all our journeys to ensure that everything is as it should be – in short, a unique follow-up that we have not experienced with other intermediaries.

Finally, after so many years of interaction and experience, it is worth mentioning that our trust in Alexandra is so high that we specify in general what we want, and then she largely chooses the villa for us. This resulted, among other things, in what we think was our most successful trip so far, at a villa we did not originally consider but which Alexandra recommended to us.

Almyra our strongest recommendations – via Almyra you get the utmost luxury, with unparalleled follow-up and security before and during the journey. All this at an affordable price in an underrated holiday location.

This house is breath taking!
Spent 11 days with my family at this villa and it was absolutely fantastic. The property manager Alexandra was great, easy to communicate with and did everything to make our stay amazing. The villa is beyond words! The views are just amazing, the pool, proximity to town, house amenities. Everything was fabulous. Thank you.

Soggiorno fantastic. La più bella casa vacanza in cui sia mai stata! Appena ristrutturata, pulitissima, dotata di ogni confort. Posizione comoda in quanto vicino a Chania e di strada per le spiagge più belle di Creta. Alexandra gentilissima e disponibile; ci ha organizzato una gita con il taxi boat, prenotato i gommoni e i ristoranti. Veramente tutto perfetto!

Jag kan varmt rekommendera detta boende. De båda husen är smakfullt inredda och välplanerade. Det är nära både till stranden och havet samt till affärer och restauranger och vackra promenadvägar. Trädgården är en oas med doftande apelsinträd och saltvattenspool. Jag kommer definitivt att återvända till denna underbara plats.

Beautiful villa with space for up to 12 people. Amazing garden with a pool, sunbeds, outdoor shower, lots of flowers, fruit trees and a herb garden. Spacious and modern kitchen. There is also an outdoor kitchen. The social areas indoors and outdoors have a really cosy and genuine feeling. Seaview from the second floor, comfortable beds. The area is calm, but even so there are several good restaurants, supermarket, ATM, coffee shop etc. nearby. There is a 450 m walk from the house to the beach. I enjoyed our stay very much and would gladly recommend it!

Alexandra’s place was amazing. Perfect location with amazing views over the water and walkable distance to the beach. Not that you need it because the pool area upstairs was everything we needed and more. Infinity pool was spectacular, and we enjoyed the sunsets with a Prosecco in hand. Place was exceptionally clean and had every amenity we needed for the week. If we did need to contact Alexandra, she was very quick in responding and extremely helpful. Christina across the road even assisted with a last-minute baby sitter! Location with local cafes downstairs was also very convenient. Such a lovely relaxing week, and we were all very sorry to leave. Would love to return soon. Definitely recommend staying!

First Class in Every Way! We just returned from our week at Villa Celestine. It was amazing! We’ve been traveling to Europe for almost 20 years and this is our favourite house. The pictures show you how beautiful it is but it’s also incredibly comfortable. From the welcome basket to the bathroom amenities, every little detail makes you feel special. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are lovely (even heated floors!). It was difficult to pull ourselves away from the third-floor pool area — just exquisite! We also cooked quite a bit and the kitchen has everything you need — and more! The guest book includes great information about operating the home’s appliances and getting the most out of the area. Special thanks to Alexandra and Christina for all their help in making our trip so magical. If you have the chance to stay at this beautiful home, you will not be disappointed!

Une maison de rêve! Nous avons adoré notre séjour! La maison est top, super propre, très bien aménagée avec tout le confort et le roof top avec la piscine est un vrai bonheur. Le village est très tranquille mais il y a tout ce qu’il faut et notamment plein de tavernes sympas au bord de l’eau. L’accueil et la disponibilité d’Alexandra sont très précieux; elle est disponible dès que vous en avez besoin. Nous avons testé les massages dans la villa; ils étaient formidables. Bref un séjour inoubliable.

Perfection! Everything you need to relax and enjoy the wonders of Crete.
Luxurious, well appointed, beautifully designed and decorated, in a quaint setting surrounded by water, mountains, and restaurants. I can’t think of a single complaint, the property has it all, every amenity you could ask for, and Christina is there to help with anything you need. We could have spent our entire time just lounging on the rooftop in the cabana listening to the waves, there is no better spot anywhere nearby as far as we could tell! Everything was as described or better, and from beginning to end the process was easy and we just cannot wait to come back! If you are looking to get away and visit this amazing island, definitely take a look at this villa, you will love it! Leave some dates open for us though!! Thank you for such a memorable trip!

Nybyggd fräsch villa med mycket smakfull inredning. Takterrassen är fantastisk med härlig utsikt, trevliga möbler och en fin infinitypool -med riktigt varmt och härligt vatten. Sovrummen med stora förvaringsskåp och badrummen är till full belåtenhet. Köket med tillhörande allrum jättefint och i anslutning ytterligare terrass med bra gasolgrill. Vi hade fantastisk service för alla våra behov. Rekommenderar varmt Villans kock som lagade fantastisk mat och med rejäla portioner. Värdinnan Alexandra med support av Christina och Georgio ska ha en stor eloge att de gjorde denna veckan till en oförglömlig upplevelse.

Vi har hatt et fantastisk opphold. Vi er veldig fornøyd med både huset og omgivelsene. Ettermiddagene på takterrassen var spektakulære. Seilturen var en høydare og det samme med middag i huset inkludert mavedans. Din service må også nevnes – førsteklasses. Vi kommer gjerne igjen og gir våre beste anbefalinger videre.

This is a beautifully designed modern villa with splendid views of the sea, lovely landscaping and outdoor facilities that is a wonderful place to rent for a family or a group of friends. The owner is also excelent – she made an effort to stop by to introduce herself, was very responsive in the prior communications, and is really knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommended!

Wonderful house. We had a wonderful holiday in this house this summer. The view over the bay is incredible and it was a dream come true every morning. The house is well equipped, clean, tastefully furnished. Everything in the house was perfect and the person who greeted us at the house was very kind and available all the time if needed. The service was impeccable. The pool is large and suitable for all ages as there are several depths. There are many good restaurants in the area which made our stay even more enjoyable. A highlight was being able to watch a sea turtle in the bay from our terrace.

Wow – just wow ! There are 3 excellent reasons for staying at Villa Kea. Firstly, the villa is fantastic. The pictures don’t come close to doing it justice. Everything is perfectly prepared and laid out, there’s everything you’d need for a perfect holiday, and nothing at all has been skimped on. Secondly, the location is to die for. The views, the breeze, the sunsets over the sea, the sun on the mountains are all exceptional. Just a few minutes away is Almyrida with enough disparate restaurants to keep any family happy, and a great little bakery for fresh bread every morning. Chania is a short drive, as are plenty of villages, beaches, tavernas etc, but the villa feels totally isolated and private even though it’s only two minutes from the coast road. Finally, Alexandra is a dream to work with on the booking and Carina is a total star on the day-to-day management. We had a local power / water issue, totally out of their control, but they grabbed the problem and enhanced our holiday – textbook, perfect customer service, all delivered with humour and a smile. Just book it – you won’t be disappointed!

Wir haben wunderbare Tage an diesem einzigartigen Fleckchen Erde verbracht. Die Beschreibung passgenau, die Kommunikation und Betreuung von Beginn der Buchung bis zur Abreise sehr freundlich und kompetent, danke dafür Carina und Alexandra!!! Wir werden sicher noch einmal in diese Wohlfühloase kommen.

We spent a week in this amazing house. We had the opportunity to rent several beach villas in the past, and this one was by far the most spectacular and unique. The location is on top of a hill with splendid views and benefits from complete privacy. It is less than 10 minutes walk from a lovely secluded beach. It is a few minutes drive from two villages with shops and nice restaurants and less than 30 mins from Chania. The house is fully equipped to the highest standards. It has several charming outdoor seating areas with a pizza oven and two barbecues. The swimming pool area is lovely with a direct view on the sea. Alexandra and Carina were the most helpful and friendly hosts. Alexandra recommended and organised a lovely boat trip to Loutro and a day out in Chania. We highly recommend this house. It is an absolutely unique gem.

Perfect location, beautiful views, luxury. Group of 10 with 4 kids and 2 families. The villa is wonderful. Having the separate wings and 2 staircases gives each family that bit of space and makes bedtimes so much easier. Also the kitchen is the most equipped we have ever stayed at everything is there even a cocktail shaker! The views are as good as they look, in fact having the views of the Crete mountains and the bay make this truly breath taking, we never tired of it after 10 days. Thirdly the location is perfect. The villa is not overlooked, very private but Plaka center is 5 mins uphill and has a few restaurants. Next door the emerald Hotel has a great restaurant, the emerald salad is amazing, but the fish, mushrooms and prawns equally great. Even at the top of road, sunset restaurant is also fabulous, food. Much grown in their own garden, you can tell how proud they are of their delicious food. I should also add communication with Alexandra and Carina was fast and they answered all queries prior to our stay and during. Fabulous service, super clean villa. Luxury and we hope to return one day!

We were a group of 6 couples plus child and enjoyed our days at Villa Salacia to the fullest! The property description and pictures are a 100% accurate. Prior to the trip we got a lot and many useful tips from Alexandra who was always very swift in her replies. The villa’s interior is tastefully combining the old and new and very well equipped! The sundowns over the infinity pool turning everything into the deepest orange and pink will be a memory we won’t forget. The villa is in easy reach from the airport if you have a rental car and similarly practically located to visit many places if you’d like to go on a day-trip. Nevertheless, it definitely invites also to simply spend a day at the pool and in the garden and enjoy the scenic views. We didn’t want to go to a touristy or party area in Crete but instead stay somewhere where it’s more peaceful and relaxed and with Villa Salacia (and beginning of June) we got all we wished for. Thanks for the great stay!

Tusen takk for et fantastisk opphold i «Villa Salacia»! Vi hadde en herlig uke og fylte villaen med nær familie i forbindelse med bryllupsfeiring. Reisefølget besto av familie fra 14 måneder til 82 år.
Bilder og beskrivelse gir et riktig bilde av villaen. Den har meget høy standard utvendig og innvendig. Uteområdene og bassengfasiliteter fremheves spesielt! Vi hadde avtalt transport fra Chania flyplass med drosjer samt leiebil som vi hadde disponibel hele oppholdet. Vi hadde også avtalt innkjøp av matvarer, og vi kunne derfor innta villaen uten tanke på andre ting enn å nyte i fulle drag. Alle forhåndsavtaler fungerte prikkfritt Kvelden etter ankomst hadde vi bestilt «Chef services». Tre veldig hyggelige og dyktige kokker gjorde kvelden til ett av høydepunktene under oppholdet. Vi foretok også en tur til sørkysten anbefalt av Alexandra. Å bade i grottene i Marmara var en spesiell opplevelse, og vi spiste en nydelig lunch samme sted. Det fantes flere tavernaer i gangavstand fra villaen, men vi laget også mat «hjemme». Kjøkkenet fungerte utmerket, og innkjøp ble foretatt både i Plaka eller på et større supermarked 20 minutters kjøretid unna. Hele turfølget var enige om at dette var en uforglemmelig uke. Vi kommer mer enn gjerne tilbake!

Un séjour dans un décor de rêves, encore plus beau que sur les photos!!! La maison a été pensée de manière très ingénieuse, une vue à couper le souffle de chaque pièce: mer oliviers, fleurs, piscine, patio de repos et lecture. La villa domine sur la baie, les couleurs sont superbes à chaque instant de la journée et surtout au coucher de soleil. Très calme aussi. Une décoration tres sympathique et des prestations de très grande qualité. Je recommande vivement cette villa!!!

What Else?!? Cette villa est juste incroyable. L’emplacement est idéal, à l’écart des bars de plage et en contact avec la nature. Elle est très bien équipée. … ça va être compliqué de trouver aussi bien pour nos prochaines vacances. Alexandra a été à notre disposition dès que nous avions besoin d’elle : questions sur la maison, conseil pour les visites, organisation de sorties…elle s’est même chargée de prendre un rendez-vous chez le médecin pour nous. Alexandra fourni un niveau de service digne des conciergeries dès meilleurs hôtels. Thank a lot for your kindness. Your reactivity was very helpful. I hope we could plan another vacation to your Villas soon. Seen the reaction of our friends when they saw photos on Facebook, I’m sure that some of them will try to rent Peninsula in coming years.

Hej! Tusen tack för ett fantastiskt boende. Huset var över all förväntan och mycket välutrustat. Toppen att du alltid fanns tillgänglig, även Carina gjorde ett strålande jobb!

Excellent stay in a beautiful house in a exceptional location. Alexandra is an extremely welcoming host with a constant attention to detail and service.

Nothing less than perfect! I must admit, I am a frequent user of Airbnb premises, and rarely bother write a response, BUT, this Villa must get what it deserves! as it is by far over and above any other … This is the best place I have ever seen, or ever stayed in. The owner, and the host have gone far out of their way to make us feel at home, down to the last detail. The place actually looks better that the pictures (sounds hard to believe, but it is really better than the pics). the villa is fully equipped, missing absolutely nothing! the entire compound is extremely pampering, quiet, and worth every penny. we will definitely be back there! soon!!

La villa est exactement comme décrite. La piscine est super. Alexandra nous a chaleureusement accueilli, nous a fait savoir qu’elle est a notre disposition 24/7 et nous a donne quel que conseils utiles. Elle a même offre de nous emmener en excursion. L’equipe de nettoyage qui est arriver deux fois pendant la semaine (une pour nettoyer et une pour changer les draps.) est très calme, efficace et serviable. En tout et pour tout, nous somme très satisfait et planifions d’y retourner a la prochaine occasion.

We really can’t say enough good things about our stay at Villa Thetis. We travelled to Crete with our twin boys (aged 9 months) in May. The villa was as pictured and absolutely beautiful. The space is bigger than it appears in the pictures. The view is amazing and the pool is beautiful. The Villa is in a small village and a very short drive to Chora Sfakion. The Villa is great for a quiet family holiday and those looking for a more authentic Greek experience. This place isn’t for you if you would like to be in the middle of the action. The hosts went above and beyond to make us feel at home. They organised for us to have two high chairs and travel cots. They also arranged for us to have groceries in the house on our arrival. A cleaner came once every three days and went above and beyond what was expected – she even cleaned the small splash pool we bought for our boys. Before leaving the villa one of the neighbours brought us a home-made sfakian pie (a local delicacy) as a send-off. By the end of our stay, we felt as though we were part of the village and were sad to leave – we would highly recommend a stay at Villa Thetis!

We had such a lovely holiday in Crete, I am still dreaming about it and the hospitality that both you and the lovely Dimitri showed us was amazing. I so loved the location we had this year, able to swim in the sea at any moment is amazing. Many thanks, look forward to hearing from you.

Storfamilien takker for en sjelden ferieopplevelse på et kvalitets sted. Ofte er bildene bedre på nett enn i virkeligheten, her er det motsatt. Et luksuriøst sted med alle fasiliteter.  Kjempegod service og følelsen av personlig oppfølging gjorde oppholdet helt unikt, har ikke opplevd maken. En stor takk til Dimitri og hans kokkekunster, nå vet vi hva ekte gresk grillaften er. En generøs kveld som sent glemmes. Dette stedet anbefales på det varmeste, store og små koste seg, ingen ville hjem til Norge etter en uke.

Het is een fantastisch huis met een geweldig uitzicht! Wij waren met 5 volwassen, 4 kinderen van 10-13 jaar en een baby. Fijne indeling in het huis met slaapkamers en badkamers. Het is heerlijk zitten op de veranda in de schaduw voor het eten en daarna in de loungeset. Het zwembad is ook genieten, groot, schoon en heerlijke temperatuur. Vanaf de veranda goed zicht op het zwembad en genieten van de zonsondergang.

Amazing house, even better than on the pictures. The area is very quiet but close to small beaches with tavernas and shops. The house is very well furnished, with everything you can need to cook, enjoy time in the terrasse and pool or even inside. Very comfy beds, high quality service, decoration that makes you feel at home. I strongly recommend it!

Magnifique villa avec une vue incroyable sur la baie de Souda, une piscine extra aussi bien pour les enfants que pour les adultes. Le soleil et le chant des cigales ainsi que la gentillesse des crétois ont rendu ce séjour merveilleux et nous a fortement envie de revenir!

This was the best house ever! Our holiday was completely perfect thanks to the stunning apartment and Nikos our incredible host who was so kind and gave us lots of tips and help with our activities around the island. He also bought us some wonderful local produce and helped us with any problems. The villa was truly a 5 star experience, perfect cool and clean bedrooms with the most comfortable beds in the world! A big highlight was the white robes provided to wear when round the pool! The pool itself was sensational with stunning views especially at sunset. There was lovely beaches nearby and our boat trip that Nikos recommended led us to some absolute paradise spots. The local food was so delicious and the people so friendly. I really couldn’t fault this place, it truly provided the setting for the best holiday ever.

Villa Olvia is fabulous. The view and the pool made us feel like we had our own little peaceful spot in Crete, with an unobstructed view of the sea. The house is located in a quieter region so you get a feel for life away from tourists. Everything is modern, stylish, clean and very well equipped. There is a lovely balance of indoor and outdoor space. Konstantina and Nikos were amazing hosts, very attentive and helpful with local recommendations. Highly recommend this property.

Lovely stay, enjoyed both the house, the village and the region! The house is exactly as advertised, stylish, clean and well situated a few hundred meters from the village centre and the village beaches. Damulis and Alexandra were both perfect hosts, and took great care of us. A few highlights: Collecting fresh eggs and vegetables for breakfast in the garden every morning. Long brunches in the shade under the lemon tree. Renting a small motor boat from Damulis’ company, and exploring the coastline in our own. Spending lazy days on the Ilingas and sweet water beaches. (Don’t miss the secret beaches around the corner from Ilingas. Dinner at Anopolis half way up the mountains. Evening runs in the surrounding hills, on donkey trails and country roads. Already looking forward to returning!

Wir haben in Damulis Haus eine sehr schöne Ferienwoche verbracht. Sehr freundlicher Empfang, tolle Lage mit superschönen Blick. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder. Liebe Alexandra, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt in Damulis’ Haus. Geschmackvolle Ausstattung, herrliche Lage, traumhafte Aussicht, freundlicher Empfang… alles sehr gut.

Kære Alexandra. Tak for leje af dit hus i Sfakia. Vi har haft en dejlig uge, og vi vil huske tilbage på udflugten til Marmaras smukke strand. Tak for din søde og gæstfrie måde at være på. Damulis var også sød, rar og hjælpsom. Mange hilsner fra os alle fem.

La maison est aler. Conforme en tout point à la description et plus encore: la terrasse, le potager et ses délicieux melons et même les œufs des poules! La location est extrêmement bien entretenue, très aler, très spacieuse, très bien équipée (cuisine, ale de bain, etc). Linge de maison, savon, shampooing, petit cadeau d’accueil… De la terrasse et de la Maison, vue splendide sur toute la baie de Sfakia, coucher de soleil compris. La maison est située en haut du village, ce qui oblige à une petite grimpette (10m max à pied) depuis La plage et le village, sans difficulté même sous le soleil d’août ! L’accueil par Damulis (propriétaire) est très chaleureux, précis et sérieux. La préparation du sejour avec Alexandra, par mail ou l’appli, très précise et sérieuse aussi. Un conseil: louer un bateau à moteur (sans licence) au Diving Center de Damulis, sur le port, et découvrir les plages inaccessibles par voie de terre, dans la baie de Sfakia. Merci pour votre aide et vos bons conseils. Merci beaucoup aussi à Damulis et aussi à Sofia! Notre séjour fut parfait!

Alexandra is a top host – she took care of everything and you could really feel sha wanted us to feel great not only at the house she rented but generally at Crete during our holiday. She is the perfectionist and a great friend, – everything was just great.

Dette er en nydelig eiendom som passer svært godt til to familier som reiser sammen, eller familier som reiser med flere generasjoner. Vi har vært i villaen fire ganger med tre generasjoner og opplevd at det er god plass til cirka ti mennesker. Huset holder høy komfort og har en herlig stor stue med åpen kjøkkenløsning og utgang til veranda og hage. Hagen er lett å trives i med busker, sitrontrær, blomster og det herlige bassenget. Soverom og senger holder høy standard. Huset er hyggelig, komfortabelt og praktisk. Det har for oss blitt stedet der vi virkelig finner feriefølelsen når vi reiser mange barn og voksne sammen. Det er et godt kjøkken å lage mat i, og det er også enkelt å bestille mat hjem fra gode restauranter i nærmiljøet. Det er cirka en kilometer til nydelig strand som vi benyttet de få dagene vi forlot villaens oase. Kun ti minutter med bil til romantiske Chania er selvsagt også et pluss. Oppfølgingen vi har fått av utleier har vært eksepsjonelt bra og vi har alltid fått svar på spørsmål og hjelp når vi har etterspurt det. Vi kan anbefale villaen på det aller varmeste, særlig til grupper på mellom seks og tolv i ulike aldre.

A Beautiful villa in A Beautiful area .
Villa Elpida suited us like a glove. The pool, the pergola, the outdoor seating area, and the huge table we used for breakfast. Inside the house: a fully equipped kitchen, living room and dining area for cooler hours. And the peak for us was the five bedrooms with the attached toilet / shower. George (the landlord) was in contact with us throughout the time we stayed at the villa, recommendations about restaurants in the area, information about the beaches and sailing options. So thanks. And thanks to Alexandra that before we arrived had already shared with us recommendations about the various possibilities in the area, and during our stay was in touch with us, for all the information we asked for.

We stayed in four people at Villa Tholos. The villa is very beautiful and very spacious with a beautiful view of the sea. Very nice and fresh garden with sunbeds and sofas. Beautiful outdoor table for outdoor dining, sheltered from the wind. The very spacious kitchen with everything you need. Very comfortable and fresh rooms with very comfortable mattresses. Truly a luxury accommodation. The owners are very available for any problem. Excellent tips for boat trips from Chora Sfakion We’ll be back soon… !!

Chora Sfakion. Séjour très agréable dans une maison confortable et très jolie.


What a fantastic place to start our holiday. Amazing location, with views of the ocean from every turn. Really well-equipped little house, with comfortable beds and really stylish, totally private garden with soft lawn to lay on, private ocean access and beach shower. Swim to lunch. We are really well at Rokos where Nikos welcomed us every day and looked after us. We landed at Chania at 10am and we’re swimming in the sea by 10.40! But feels like you could be anywhere, it’s so secluded and quiet. Nets on all the windows meant we could sleep with all the windows open at ease with the sea breeze blowing through. Breakfast on the balcony where you can watch the sunrise with uninterrupted views. Just be prepared if you are staying, the mini markets are up the hill in Sternes so don’t forget to stop for supplies before you drive down the mountain. We hired bikes, which was fun, but a bit too hot for family riding. If you’re hard core and can endure the hills, Lion Rentals drop off road bikes to the house for you for around 25 euro a day. A really really special start to our annual trip to Crete. Am booking for next year. Many thanks Alexandra!!

We have travelled a lot as a family and this was, without doubt, one of the loveliest holiday properties we’ve ever rented. The flat itself is beautifully done and part of a house that is actually on the beach (the only house on the beach). To have your morning coffee and then step into the clear azure sea. It’s a stunning situation and unusually protected from developers. And the family who own the house are a delight. They run the taverna on the beach and serve fish they catch every day. A real haven. And wonderful value for what it is. Don’t tell everyone! A wonderful property with the most delightful owners who embraced us like family! Such a special place we almost don’t want to tell other people about it! But, of course, we will…The setting is hard to beat.

Εξαιρετικό από όλες τις απόψεις! Η τοποθεσια βέβαια είναι το δυνατο σημείο του καταλύματος διότι είναι σπάνιο ένα τόσο ωραίο σπίτι να είναι τόσο κοντά στη θάλασσα όπως αυτό! Γενικά παρα πολύ ευχαριστημένος από όλα!

Sommeren 2017 leide vi dette strandhuset som bokstavelig talt ligger et steinkast fra stranden. Morgenbad er obligatorisk: Rett fra sengen, 40 meter unna, ligger en liten, privat og langgrunn strand. Området er stille og fredelig, langt borte fra neonlys og bråk, og med hage på 4 mål får du den freden og roen du trenger. Deilige uteplasser rundt hele huset gir deg sol helt til solnedgang, eller skygge når du trenger dét.
Almyra anbefales hvis du vil ha en ferie utenom det vanlige, og hvis service er viktig for deg. Almyra/ Alexandra vil garantert gi deg en ferieopplevelse utenom det vanlige, du kommer til å lengte tilbake.
