 Villa Nynemia, Almerida, Crete,  
Free wifi

Nynemia means peace in ancient Greek, a very appropriate name for this outstanding accommodation set in 6,000 square metres of land and surrounded by olive groves, for almost as far as the eye can see.
Standing on a terraced hillside a little under 1.5 km from Almerida, Villa Nynemia enjoys glorious sea views and a tranquil rural setting, yet still remains within fairly easy walking distance of the sandy beaches, shops and tavernas of Almirida, especially in the cool of the evening. A useful fact we thought, if perhaps you sometimes crave a little exercise after a sumptuous taverna meal and a glass or two of local wine.

Elegant hand made furniture, quality kitchen and bathroom fittings (with English plumbing) are all part of Penny, the charasmatic owner's,  philosophy that guests who really enjoy their stay are likely to return, a point of view with which we entirely agree, as do many now  regular guests, to whom 'Villa Nynemia' has become synonymous with  'Holiday in Crete'.

From  the parking area to the side of the house a pathway with a number of steps curves up to the main rear entrance terrace, where a door opens directly into the open plan living area at first floor level, with to the right the superbly fitted kitchen in an L shape complete with full cooker, fridge-freezer, dishwasher and a capuccino-espresso machine.

To the front of the room is a very comfortable living area, with an arrangement of comfortable sofas and stylish dining table and chairs. The sea views from here are absolutely stunning but are even better from the adjoining covered terrace at the front of the villa, furnished for dining alfresco. A doorway off the living room leads to a beautifully furnished bedroom with twin beds matrimonial style and a very chic ensuite shower room, plus French windows to the same front terrace that runs the length of the villa at this level.

A smart wood trimmed staircase sweeps down from the lounge to the lower level, where there are two well furnished bedrooms, one with twin beds matrimonial style and an en-suite shower room, the other with a large double bed and a full en-suite bathroom, complete with washing machine tucked away in a cupboard. Both bedrooms have French windows to the cool and shady lower terrace.

To the far side of this villa is the tiled 9m x 5m mineral pool (no Chlorine, water is filtered through salts), complete with a gazebo offering shade in the heat of the day with a lovely outdoor bed, as well as an outside shower and plenty of sun beds. A purpose built barbecue is conveniently located to the rear of the property near the kitchen terrace.

**As an extra service at Villa Nynemia, for those clients who would prefer to enjoy their beautiful surroundings of their villa in the evenings without cooking, Penny has thoughtfully made take away delivery arrangements with one of the tavernas in Almirida, who will deliver your meal to Villa Nymenia in serving dishes (not tin foil dishes) and  lay your table in readiness. Crockery etc can be returned the following day.**

NB.The pool has a minimum depth of 1.50m throughout.

** Non-Smoking Villa **

"Excellent villa, great views of the bay and yet very private and quiet. The pool is fantastic and spacious. The villa is also close, but not too close to the small beach and village of Almerida with its lovely restaurants and bars. We cannot wait to come back."

Location of Villa Nynemia
Almerida , Crete

22 km east of Chania, Almerida, this pretty little seaside village has two gently shelving sandy beaches fringed by sleepy waterside tavernas as well as a small fishing harbour and little rocky coves, with the sea a marvellous melange of colours from deep aquamarine to a pastel turquoise. ...More about Almerida »

Nina Jamieson - Oct 2012
Villa Nynemia in October
"Villa Nynemia was a lovely villa sitting in an olive grove with great views over Souda Bay to the north west and distant views of the White Mountains to the southwest. It is surrounded by olive trees and a very well kept garden, which is especially nice by the pool. We had a very relaxing week late in the season where the weather was mostly hot and sunny and the sea was warm. Almirida is a short drive where there were good tavernas and a decent supermarket and the sea comes almost to the road. Highly recommended. "
Jacqueline Davies - Sep 2012
A Lovely Place to Just Be
"Our third visit to Nynemia, with it's lovely garden and immaculate pool. I think that says it all! The only tiny niggles were the lack of a decent sharp knife, no small dishes for pre dinner nibbles and pillows a bit on the over rubbery side. But overall this is a delightful and relaxing place to be, yet well placed for access to interesting places. One of our favourites is a trip to the springs in the foothills of the white mountains below Ancient Lappa. The restaurants specialise in spit roast lamb and goat (our choice every time) and fresh trout. The Old Windmill is especially good and the setting under the huge shady trees with flowers everywhere, due to the gushing water, is lovely as well as a change from the sea side."
Jeanne Langton - Sep 2012
Fantastic Holiday - Wonderful Villa - RECOMMENDED!
"An absolutely beautiful villa - comfortable, clean and well appointed. "English" plumbing a definite bonus, as well as all mod cons to make our stay even more relaxing. A wonderfully peaceful setting, very quiet and calm, with fantastic views across the mountains and the sea, yet within easy distance of the town and beaches, plus numerous restaurants and bars. (The walk back is uphill, so harder, but still doable!). Penny and Nic could not have been more helpful and their attention to detail was second to none. We would recommend this villa wholeheartedly and fully intend to return ourselves in the not too distant future."
Ingeborg Smeding - Jun 2012
Excellent Villa
"We just came back from our holidays on Crete. We really enjoyed staying in Villa Nynemia! The view from the house and pool is gorgeous, over the bay, with beautiful sunsets. Penny, the owner, was very kind and helpful. The villa is excellent and everything you need is available. Moreover the villa is located on a central place on western Crete, between Chania and Rethymno. Almyrida is a nice village with some good tavernas. Maarten, Ingeborg, Marcel, Rob and Cyrill from the Netherlands."
Peter Cork - May 2012
Really enjoyed our stay
"This was the second time we had stayed at Villa Nynemia and we were once again very pleased with the condition and facilities of the villa. The villa Owner, Penny was very welcoming (our flight was late but Penny and Nektario were still there to greet us) and we really enjoyed our stay. When sheep escaped from the neighbouring farm into the grounds of Villa Nynemia, we texted Diane's mobile and the problem was sorted out very quickly."

Sunday Times, The 40 hottest villas in Europe
"Sunday Times, The 40 hottest villas in Europe Hot Property: Villa Nynemia, Crete, Greece Nynemia means “peace” in ancient Greek and the villa lives up to its name in 6,000 sq metres of land, surrounded by olive groves with glorious sea views. It is within fairly easy walking distance of the beaches, shops and tavernas of Almirida, sleeps six in three bedrooms, all ensuite, has an 9m x 5m swimming pool with gazebo, outside shower and sun-beds. “Our most popular property is Villa Nynemia - we get people calling whilst they are there on holiday to book for the next year and we have about four families who go every year (and one family who keep asking to buy it),” says managing director, Paul Fogg. "
Alan F - Jun 2011
Better than the pictures!
"Just to say it was a perfect villa: better even than the pics. Penny is great : really welcoming. Many thanks"
Cooper family - Jul 2010
One of the best villas in Greece
"I would prefer to put others off this villa so that it remains available for me to book it! Villa Nynemia must be one of the best villas in the whole of Greece. Pennie, the owner, is determined to please. We let it slip that we had forgotten to bring our Backgammon set. She delivered one to us the very next day. What a gem of a place!"
The Kimptons - Jul 2010
Stunning villa
"Penny the owner was absolutely delightful and so helpful and kind. Stunning villa, beautifully appointed, immaculate condition and the most wonderful pool overlooking the hills down to the sea. Very comfortable. Penny had ensured that all guests needs are met providing excellent first aid kits, to DVD's suitable for teenagers and music for us aged parents! it was the most perfect holiday and we felt so well looked after by Freelance holidays from advice on where to stay, to all the information about the area and restaurants, maps etc. A very caring and professional organisation - congratulations - we have been highly recommending you to all friends and family and look forward to our next holiday with you. best wishes from all the Kimptons"
Moira & Family - May 2010
Very private
"Really liked the non-chlorine pool and seclusion and privacy of the villa's position."
Stephen Cole - Apr 2010
Gorgeous Villa Nynemia
"Firstly, your website is very easy to navigate and the booking procedure painless, i phoned your UK office a couple of times after booking and prior to departing, the service was friendly and efficient, and not some annoying automated service. On arrival in Chania, Diane, your rep introduced herself... so felt very reassured that if we needed any questions answered we had a point of contact...her relaxed and friendly ' nothing too much trouble' demeanour was great...and when put into practice a week later when our flight was cancelled, she exceeded our expectations, arranging alternative accommodation and kept in daily contact with us in regards to the flight situation. Our holiday lasted a few more days than expected in the gorgeous Villa Nynemia, which Diane organised, the owners Penny & Nectarios were relaxed, friendly and generous hosts ...the villa is luxurious ,the location stunning. what could have been a frustrating end to our holiday, i had visions of camping out at the airport etc, was made relaxing and we felt very looked after and cared for by Freelance and their representatives. Having holidayed in Crete before, your 'rivals' could learn a thing or two from your business ethos and standard of accommodation you represent. In the subsequent weeks following the 'ash', we feel in a minority that our extended holiday was so enjoyable after reading so many 'horror' stories of stranded holidaymakers, I feel very fortunate to have booked my holiday with Freelance and your website will be my first point of call in the future, as well as recommending you to friends and colleagues. "
Angela Vaites - Jul 2009
Wonderful time once again
"Wonderful time once again, Pennie very welcoming as well as all Freelance Holidays staff we met ."
The Brand Family - May 2009
Just wonderful
"Just wonderful. Still feeling very relaxed. The only downside was the flight delay but Freelance there to welcome us at midnight!"
Charlotte Tuckwell - Sep 2008
Excellent villa
"We were met by the villa owner, Penny, which was very useful at the start of our holiday. Her warm and helpful welcome added to this excellent villa and made this holiday."
Mr and Mrs Woods-Davison - Jan 2008
"A few things struck us about the excellence of freelance holidays: booking staff in the UK, nothing was too much trouble for them. The owner of our villa was really helpful indeed. All these things, apart from the Villa itself - which was even better than we had expected - would make us book with freelance again. Knowing if we had a problem you company would help us gave us peace of mind for our holiday. We will be booking again with you! Thank you to you and to all your staff."
Mr and Mrs Robinson - Jul 2007
Villa was perfect
"We had a fabulous honeymoon at Villa Nynemia. Freelance provided an extremely helpful welcome pack and advice on arrival, visits from reps were optional and we were happily left to enjoy the peace and tranquility of Villa Nynemia alone. The villa was perfect, designed and maintained to very high standards with mountain views from the rear terrace and sunsets over Souda Bay from the front balcony. Although there are a couple of other villas nearby, Nynemia and it's pool are not at all overlooked. If you ever want to leave the sunny swimming pool, which is also beautiful at night, then it's just a 20 minute hilly walk or a 5 minute drive into Almirida which has lovely tavernas, bars and grocery shops. The owners are very friendly and helpful and visit to clean the villa and pool twice a week. We loved it and can't wait to go back!"
The Cubisons - Apr 2007
"As last year, we enjoyed a simply wonderful holiday at Villa Nynemia. Penelope, Nectarios and all the family gave us a great welcome and did everything they possibly could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. Ian and Frankie, our reps were charming and friendly, with good advice regarding new Tavernas. Diane and her team at the airport ensured at the end of our stay that our check-in was carried out with the minimum of delay. This very personal touch will bring us back to Crete with Freelance as often as we can in the years ahead. Another Great Holiday - well done Freelance!"
Melany George - May 2006
"I am somewhat reluctant to tell anybody else how lovely this villa is as I don't want it to be fully booked up next year so I can't go back. We had a wonderful holiday, the villa is in a beautiful location with stunning views of both mountains and seas. Nektarios and Pennie made us very welcome, and I am looking forward to going back again in 2007. Well done yet again Freelance"
Mrs. Levitt - Jun 2006
Absolutely fantastic
"Without doubt the best holiday we've EVER had. Freelance were absolutely fantastic, very professional yet extremely friendly too. The Villa is absolutely immaculate a real home from home with everything you could ever need. Fantastic views to wake up to every day and a sunset to take your breath away! Wonderfully peaceful and quiet. The resort of Almirida has just the right mix of cultures and a sandy beach that is perfect. The owners of the villa Pennie and Nektarious were lovely, very nice people, they made us feel very special. What more can I say, it was so good we've already booked for next year."
Sue Dessoy - Aug 2005
"What a fantastic holiday. The villa exceeded all our expectations. Beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The views are fantastic and were quite breathtaking. We couldn't have wished for a better villa, and to top it all the owners were some of the nicest people we have ever met. We hope to return soon."
BRAND FAMILY - Jun 2005
"Absolutely fantastic villa - beautifully peaceful with wonderful views. High standard throughout and Nektarios and Penelope were so welcoming. The beach at Almirida was perfect for young children sandy and shallow."
