Lovely Villa in a good location just a short walk into town and the beach with its many shops, restaurants and tavernas . Gail the owner is so friendly and helpful and we loved staying here .
Lovely modern house with everything you need.
Villa Argo is a lovely modern home with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Comfy spacious bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and a great pool, all immaculate. The garden is enclosed with good loungers so on hot days we made the most of it. Wonderful view of the mountains.
Shops and good restaurants are all within walking distance down the hill in the village. Tours go from there to walk the Samaria Gorge, so we didn’t have to drive all that way.
Gail is a great host on hand with advice on places to go, and provided a welcome pack, much appreciated. Most of all we could bring the family dog (who lives in Greece) making our holiday possible. Many thanks.
Thank you guys for the lovely words.
It was pleasure meeting you all and an absolute joy having you here as guests, especially a certain 'very well behaved Labrador' :)
Hope to see you all again one day

Fantastic week at Argo Villa with an extended family of 8 in August 2018!
So our family of 5 + my bother-in-laws family of 3 came together for a great week in Kalyves. It was our 1st time in Crete and it is a truly beautiful country with surprisingly high mountains which are a fantastic backdrop to the view from the Villa Argo. I loved seeing both sunrise & sunset out through the doors of the living room across the pool to the 2500m high White Mountains. Looking the other way from the Villa was the view down over the rooftops of Kalyves to the perfectly blue Mediterranean Sea. The Villa was extremely well kitted out with all the equipment we could possibly need, including a great range of pool & beach accessories for guests use, & an extensive selection of books, games & DVDs. The beds were comfortable and the room arrangements worked well for 2 couples + 4 teenagers. At night the moon rose over the far end of the pool & we could enjoy the delights of swimming in the evening with the underwater lights on. There was sun & shade to sit in & a lovely outside eating area with BBQ for those warm Cretan evenings. However, we also found that the local restaurants were good value & the food delicious, especially the local greek salads. We enjoyed using the bus to go both east to Almaryda and west to Chania, as well as Gail helping us to arrange the local taxi company to take us to other locations. The local Kalyves beach is only a 5 minute walk down the hill & was delightful; quiet, sandy, clean. The village was also well served with supermarkets, a bakery, tavernas, restaurants and a few other small shops. The watersports in Almaryda worked out well & we did some stand up paddling boarding ( a bit choppy) and some very fast catamaran sailing. We had a fantastic week & would love to be able to visit again at some point. Thank you Gail & Jason.

Nice big house with pool.
The house was very comfortable for us (5 people). Walking distance to the village and beach. Very nice host.
The villa is very comfortable, well equipped , spotlessly clean, and the pool is beautiful. It is very close to the village, and a lovely beach. Gail's attention to the guests is excellent, and I would recommend it very highly. We plan to return!
Ich kann das Haus, den Pool, den Garten, die Nähe zum Meer und in den Ort und besonders die Gastfreundlichkeit einfach nur uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen, auch wenn ich dann Gefahr laufe, dass das Haus stets ausgebucht ist, wenn wir selbst auch mal wieder vorbei schauen möchten!
Thank you Nicole for the lovely review. It was a pleasure having you all here (especially the little mermaids). I really hope to see you all again. Best regards to everyone.
