“Relaxed at last”

We've been regular visitors to Crete for many years: it’s a breathtaking island.

But Villa Kallisto is special even by Cretan standards.

The seaside town of Almyrida, just a few minutes' drive away, is an absolute pearl, with a long sheltered beach and friendly waterfront tavernas serving fresh seafood. The best of them, Psaros, will deliver to the villa itself.

The villa is secluded but very accessible - no tracks, slopes or steps to negotiate. Everything inside is pristine and contemporary. Our six-year-old daughter was utterly intrigued by the automated mosquito-nets and scary shower-heads.

Kallisto’s completely geometric style contrasts perfectly with the gentle olive groves surrounding it. The large picture windows give enchanting views over the surrounding countryside and, further away, the hills and mountains.

The swimming pool is a marvel. The minerals keeping it fresh also enhance the buoyancy of the water - our daughter then 6 - finally learned to swim without water-wings here. I’ve attached a picture, taken from our bedroom, of her jumping in, just before this achievement.

At night, my wife, my daughter and I sat on the balcony watching the sun set behind the hills in the direction of Chania and the lights twinkling far away on the other side of Souda Bay.

There's a sense of immensity but also of absolute calm, the nighttime silence just occasionally interrupted by the magical sound of a sheep-bell. It’s the perfect atmosphere in which to relearn how to do absolutely nothing.

A luxurious building doesn’t come cheap. But we found a week unwinding in Villa Kallisto worth two or three anywhere else.
