Villa Athermigo is a historic villa located in the picturesque Cretan village of Gavalohori, just a short drive from the sea. This 18th-century olive press was restored with respect for its original architecture and transformed into a luxury and stylish accommodation. The villa consists of a living, kitchen and three spacious independent suites for 2-4 people that can also be rented separately. Both when you book the entire villa as one of the suites, you will be pampered with a daily breakfast with local Greek specialties.
Villa Athermigo reveals a unique interior style; rustic on the outside, country-chic inside. Original stone walls, arches and high wooden ceilings are combined with surprisingly modern furniture and art objects. The suites are decorated in the same mix of old and new and are equipped with polished contemporary bathrooms. The lounge - the actual olive press - is a striking open living space with a horseshoe-shaped bar-style dining table, comfortable sofas by the fireplace and various chairs for relaxing.
Outside you will find a gorgeous garden full of fruit trees, shady sitting areas and colorful flowers and herbs to enjoy. The swimming pool is the place where your children can enjoy themselves all day; so time for you to read a book with a view over the olive groves.
The village of Gavalochori is surrounded by rolling hills and only 30 minutes away from Chania. It has a number of taverns where you can taste the delicious cuisine of Crete, but you can also be pampered by a chef at home. Moreover, the sea and the closest sandy beaches are only 5 kilometers away. In short, Villa Athermigo is the perfect setting for a relaxing holiday!
