Athermigo is a beautiful estate located in Ayios Pavlos, a stone's throw from the picturesque village of Gavalohori in Chania, Crete's most picturesque town. The fully-serviced estate can be rented as a whole to accommodate groups of up to 10 people or as individual self-contained Cottages each sleeping between 2 and 4 people. It is a 250 year-old olive oil press that has been recently restored to create an elegant boutique-style villas estate that combines discreet rural chic with all the amenities that holidaymakers expect. Guests in all three accommodation units (Elia, Dodia and Karydia) share a luxurious lounge and kitchen as well as the courtyard and garden with its secluded private swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Daily housekeeping and the breakfast of your selection can be provided.
The name Athermigo is derived from the traditional olive pressing process that is typical of the locality and it literally means ‘Cold Pressed’ (referring to the technique of extracting the olive oil from the olives that preserves all its nutritional elements and provides the best taste). The three deluxe accommodation units are named after the trees on the property: Elia (Olive tree), Rodia (Pomegranate tree) and Karydia (Walnut tree). Enjoy a perfect rural retreat on Crete with services to match your needs.
Architecture & History
Athermigo Estate is an ancient monument, a remarkable example of local, traditional architecture. Elements such as the main entrance, the stone openings, the interior patio, the traditional exterior oven, the well and the semi-circular arches typical of the architecture of the time, as well as the original oil extraction machinery, have all been preserved intact. This renovation process resulted in a luxurious and contemporary villa complex.
