ELIA PROJECT OF STONE VILLA
Almyrida - Apokoronas
“Elia” (gr.”Ελιά“) means the olive tree. As stated in the Holy Scriptures it was the first to grow after the Flood. One of the most vivacious plants on earth, it is able to grow and bear fruit for hundreds of years, and olive oil helps to cure diseases, makes our food healthy and tasty.
Since ancient times, the olive branch has symbolized peace, victory, purification, longevity, health and fertility. This is a positive impulse for the future home to flourish and bring peace and prosperity to its owner!
The stone villa “Elia” will be built on a hillside in the center of a large land plot on the original layout. Visually these are 2 separate buildings moving from one level to another, between them there are a swimming pool and a comfortable seating area with a decorative garden fireplace and furniture. Nevertheless they are interconnected by an internal staircase for convenience and full functionality. The upper level building includes a spacious living room, an open-plan kitchen and dining area, a guest bathroom and a storeroom. From the kitchen-dining room there is access to a covered gazebo, and the large windows of the living room and dining room open onto a sunny terrace with a swimming pool.

Almyrida is situated in the Apokoronas district to the east of Chania. Apokoronas is a region which extends to the northeastern part of the prefecture of Chania, by the foothills of the White Mountains to the north coast of Crete. It is characterized by the green hills and the fertile tracts of land, due to the abundance of water coming from the mountains, creating the only natural lake of Crete, as well as rivers which run through the region, before finding their way out to the sea.
The large, gently shelving, sandy bay that makes up the seaside resort of Almyrida was once a fishing village but is now a thriving seaside resort with a “blue flag” beach. Tavernas and bars line the sea front. There are a couple of mini-markets, a bakery, patisserie, a wine shop and newsagents. There is a windsurfing school, a scuba diving center and boat trips are available as well. It is the perfect place to combine a beach holiday and to explore the countryside behind the village on foot.
The lovely sandy beach with the trees along it, and the picturesque small harbour with the fishing boats and the other marine vessels, compose the landscape. Opposite the beach is the Karga island and beyond, looking towards the north, can be seen the coasts and the hills of Akrotiri peninsula, and to the south, stands the bulk of the mountains of western Crete, the White Mountains.
