This central 2 bedroom apartment is new on the market. It is located in a quiet back road of the popular beach resort of Almyrida in walking distance to the sandy beach, shops, tavernas and cafes.
On the front terrace there is a pool shared between the 4 apartments of the building with sunbeds to enjoy the sunny Cretan weather.
Entering the house through the main entrance you come into the open plan lounge dining area and kitchen. On the left hand side is a covered balcony with village views.
On the right hand side is a bathroom with shower and 2 bedroom, each with access to its own balcony.
The apartment is 12 years old and still in the hands of the first owner. All windows are aluminium windows and the bedrooms have reversible A/C units. A solar water system heats the water for showers on sunny days and there is a 500l water tank.
The small fishing village of Almyrida is now a delightful resort. As you approach from the western end of the village you will see an early basilica dating from the fifth century, with a wonderful mosaic floor. Almyrida has a lovely bay shaped harbour keeping the beach sheltered and safe, making it an ideal spot for those with young families, as it also benefits from a gentle sloping sandy beach entrance to the clear blue warm sea. All along the beach front are mostly family-run tavernas and cafes, to enjoy the great local food and scenery. There is a taxi rank, ATMs, bakery, clothes shops, mini markets, and chemist. There is a watersports base where you can learn and rent out windsurfing boards as well as kayaks and catamarans. There is also a dive centre. Also a 2 hr hour boat trip from the harbour which hugs the coastline and from the boat you can snorkel. The charm of Almyrida and its sleepy pace always leaves us with happy memories.
