GAVALOHORI is a year-round village offering a few tavernas, coffee shops and well stocked super/mini markets & bakery as well as a museum and a women’s co-op where one can buy beautiful, hand-crafted & crocheted table-cloths & woven bedspreads, hand-embroidered sheets & towels, etc. Buses to Chania city and neighbouring & sea-side villages leave regularly from the Town square.
GROUND FLOOR: Entrance driveway parking with a wooden gate opening onto the shady, pergola-covered front veranda with glass sliding doors opening into the dining/kitchen area. The front entrance door is on the opposite side of the house with entrance straight into the living room. The living room has a traditional wood-burning stove and is open-plan with the kitchen/dining area with a wooden door into the ground floor shower room. There is a convenient storage space under the staircase. Sliding doors open from the spacious and airy living room onto a veranda which joins to the larger front entrance veranda facing the swimming pool. This is a delightful area to enjoy Al-fresco dining where a few steps lead down to the tiled terrace and private pool. The garden all round is very private and the pool is not overlooked at all from the road or other houses.
UPSTAIRS: Two spacious bedrooms and family bathroom with tub & fitted shower is located just off from the staircase landing between the bedrooms. Each bedroom has fitted wardrobes and its own private balcony with superb views over village houses, lush countryside to the majestic White Mountains and the distant sea. The swimming pool and garden is just below the main double bedroom.
OUTDOOR TERRACES & GARDEN: There is a wide, entrance driveway & parking. A beautiful stone-built wall surrounds the property where ornamental and evergreen trees & flowering shrubs have been planted all along the edge giving total privacy from the road and other neigbouring houses. A wooden lock-up gate opens from the driveway onto the front veranda seating area. There are tiles laid all round the 25m2 swimming pool with some graveled & tiled areas to the opposite side of the house where the front entrance door is located. A large garden/storage shed and special area for storing fire-wood are tucked away in this area, out of site from the swimming pool & entertainment area.
Perfectly suited for permanent, year-round living but is also ideal as a summer holiday home. Being close to sandy beaches in Almirida, this villa can be rented out for a lucrative income during the summer months.
