Some people’s idea of the perfect vacation is spending time in an area that has retained its natural beauty and is unspoiled by tourism. This is exactly what you will find at the village of Pemonia where you can enjoy a stay in Kalithea, a villa with a private pool in Crete.
This is a village close to the coast at the base of the rugged White Mountains (Lefka Ori) in the Apokoronas area of Chania. The area is famed for its natural beauty and diverse landscape. The combination of stunning beaches and beautiful mountains is the perfect setting for visitors looking for an alternative or ecotourism experience on their vacation away from the hustle and bustle of mass tourism.
Located just 28 kilometers from the city of Chania, Pemonia is also within easy travelling distance of Rethymno (36 km). This village is also the perfect spot for a winter vacation as you can take advantage of the pretty beaches in Almyrida and Kalyves during the warm days of the mild Cretan winter. If you are visiting the area in the summer months, the endless beach of Georgioupolis which stretches for over 10km is a fantastic place to relax and enjoy the wonderful climate of Crete.
If you do not want to spend all your time in villa Kalithea, then there are amenities and some great places to eat in the local villages and these are within close proximity. For basic supplies, you will find everything you need in Pemonia. However, if you need more supplies, then you will need to drive to Kalyves or Vrysses. Kalyves is ten kilometres from the villa and Vrysses is eight kilometres away.
On the days when you want to eat, you will find traditional Cretan taverns in many of the local villages. These serve fantastic Cretan dishes that are freshly prepared using seasonal local ingredients. For some of the best local cuisine, you might like to visit the villages of Agioi Pantes, Tzitzifes or Melidoni. All these villages are less than two kilometres from villa Kalithea. If you are willing to travel a little further, then there are some great restaurants and taverns in the seaside villages. These include Almyrida, Armeni, Georgioupolis and Kalyves.
For anyone who wants to enjoy a vacation in a private villa with a pool in Crete, the Villa Kallithea is a wonderful place to spend time. Not only is the accommodation of a high standard, the surroundings are picturesque and this is the perfect location for a quiet and relaxing vacation.
