Three conveniently situated properties in the laid-back resort of Almeritha offering practical family accommodation just a stone's throw from the beach

Looking out across Souda Bay towards the Akrotiri peninsula, and with the majestic White Mountains and the foothills of the Apokoronas district as a backdrop, the small beach resort of Almeritha enjoys a very scenic setting. Almeritha boasts a sheltered sandy beach and a decent range of tavernas, as well as a number of bars and sufficient shops for your basic holiday needs, so it's easy to see why the place has become so popular with British couples and families looking for a thoroughly relaxed seaside holiday, with all the essentials within easy walking distance but without the excessive trappings of large-scale tourism found in some of the more developed resorts.

These three independent dwellings are conveniently situated in the centre of Almeritha, just across the small seafront road from the Blue-Flag beach and the nearest tavernas. Closest to the sea is Emmanouela, a modern two-bedroom apartment situated on the upper floor of a small café/snack-bar. Air-conditioned throughout, Emmanouela consists of a light and airy living-dining room, a fully-equipped open-plan kitchen with 4-ring hob, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster and coffee-maker, two bedrooms and a shower room. Both the living area and the double room open onto the large, sea-facing front terrace, whilst the twin room opens onto a smaller, south-facing terrace at the rear, which also incorporates a laundry cupboard with a washing machine.

Standing to the rear of Emmanouela are two separate houses, Giannis and Kastellina, each with three bedrooms. The main floor of each house consists of an air-conditioned living-dining room with an open-plan kitchen (fully equipped as in Emmanouela), a shower room and a covered terrace. On the upper floor are two air-conditioned bedrooms (one with double bed, the other with twin beds), a bathroom with washing machine and two good-size terraces with sea glimpses. The third bedroom in each house has twin beds and is situated on the cooler lower ground floor, so these rooms have fans but no air-conditioning.

All three dwellings have the use of free WiFi, and TVs, DVD and CD players are also provided. Those travelling with young children will find a small playground close by, and with the beach and the nearest seafront tavernas just across the road, these properties make a very convenient option for those who prefer not to have to rely on a hire car during their holiday.
