Lovley villa

Villa Nova is elegantly designed and constructed to a high specification. It offers comfortable living space for up to 4 people; two spacious and airy bedrooms, each with access to its own shower room, a relaxed living room space and a handy kitchen area. It has a well kept courtyard garden, a lovely plunge-pool and its own off-street parking. The beach is just a few minutes walk away, as are the numerous bars and restaurants of Almyrida. It is a beautiful property and we had a lovely week there.

We stayed at Villa Nova for one week i october, two adlydt and two children. Villa Nova is the most wonderful place for a week’s vacation! Our girls who are ten and twelve years old, had a great time in the beautiful, heated pool while we enjoyed the sun in comfortable sunbeads. Maja (the ovner) was very helpfull in relation to answering all our questions regarding the trip, and Roula the perfect hostess. Almyrida is a small village, but has everything you need. So nice and friendly, and with a varierd selection of good eateries. We really can recommend this place!

Stunning, amazing villa

Just returned from two weeks at this fabulous villa. Absolutely superb. The host /concierge Roula organised taxis for us and always on hand via mobile if needed. The villa itself is stunning and superbly furnished in gorgeous style. All poolside furniture well thought out and extra touches in villa much appreciated. Always a bonus to have dishwasher tablets, washing machine tablets salt and pepper and lots of little extras. Would love to return again loved very much

Séjour formidable

Villa très confortable et décorée avec soin. Entretien irréprochable. Très bonne situation à deux pas de la plage, des restaurants et des commerces dans un quartier très calme. Les propriétaires sont disponibles et très sympathiques, tout est fait pour passer des vacances parfaites. Almyrida est une petite ville balnéaire très agréable avec toutes les commodités et activités nécessaires pour passer de bonnes vacances.

We will be back!!

At the airport we were met by a local taxi from Almyrida, which we had pre-booked through GM Villas. Almyrida taxi has safe drivers, new cars and even 8-seat new Mercedes vans. We arrived at Villa Nova welcomed by GM Villas' friendly host in a chilled house with fresh flower, wine, water and coffee ++. We had also arranged with GM Villas’ nice host to do some grocery shopping to be ready at our arrival, so that we could start our vacation right away. At Villa Nova we had everything we needed. Lots of space and delicately decorated. The villa is bright, modern and newly built. Lovely to come to a real house and not typical rental house. We didn’t miss a thing of equipment neither in the kitchen nor otherwise. We had Norwegian television channels and a lot of channels from rest of the world. An information folder with overview of Crete, Almyrida and things to do was very helpful. Here we found both excursions, children's activities and emergency numbers. The outside area is well sheltered with virtually no insight, and with both sun and shadow. A small pool with space to sit in was one of my favorites. There we enjoyed the sun when we were not laying lazy on the lovely sunbeds with comfortable mattresses. In the evenings we went the short walk to Almyrida through a nice neighborhood where people greeted friendly. We felt very welcome. The restaurants are located side by side along the stunning sandy beach with EU's blue flag. We enjoyed the food at all the restaurants we visited, with both Greek food and international food. Everything tasted good and we look back on a great quality holiday. The process of booking and payment was simple and safe. We were thoroughly informed all the way. This was true luxury from start to the end - and we will be back!!

Best stay ever!

Perfect in all aspects. Very good beds, excellent pool area, beautiful interior and perfect location vs beach and restaurants. Difficult to find anything with room for improvements. Maja very helpful before trip-start, and superior service on the site (cleaners, pool manager and of course the charming Roula). All in all extremely satisfied.

Stayed in this beautiful, perfectly decorated villa for two weeks. The service was incredible and Natasa and Maja were always available to answer questions or make suggestions. It's location is perfect-walking distance to the beach and town. I couldn't have hoped for a better villa for our ten month old. Hope to come back again!

A peaceful and perfect place to relax and stress down, highly recommended!

Visited Almyrida in the beginning of June, 8 adults and two children (6 and 10 years). Have been travelling a lot around the world and must say that Villa Karga and Villa Nova is one of my best luxury experiences. Perfect location with wonderful view, only 5 min walking distance to the local restaurants beautiful located by the sea. If you like to play tennis, it took only 12 minutes by walking to the courts. Would highly recommend to book the chef, he cooked us a four course seafood menu with Greek wines that was fantastic. The chef and his host really made or last evening together. We also ordered pizza for lunch a couple of days, took 15-20 min and they delivered at the house, perfect for lunch at a reasonable price. There are many grocery stores and also a local butcher five minutes from the Villas, easy to cook your own food in a well equipped kitchen. I would highly recommend GM Villas for their top notch service and their nice concierge Natasa that was very helpful.

Loved our holidays

Can I just say how much we all loved our holidays at Villa Karga and Nova. The design of the villas is stunning, the quality of the interior is extremely high, the views are amazing, and every small detail is well thought through. Thank you again for allowing us to stay late on the Saturday. It gave us another day of holiday, meaning that we could spend Jack’s 9th birthday at the beach rather than hanging around with suitcases, etc, and meant that we were refreshed for our journey home. We were so pleased with the villas and are very happy to recommend them. And we will certainly return should we come back to Crete.
