This exclusive classicaly refined, three-bedroom villa enjoys a large private heated pool with spectacular views towards Souda Bay and panoramic views of the White Mountains. Villa Anemos is the ideal place for relaxing holidays under the Cretan sun. This luxurious villa is furnished with pieces of family-owned antique furniture pieces, many of which date back to the 20th century. Wooden floors, rich fabrics, colourful textiles and warm colours stand in contrast with the white walls, while glass-enclosed marble bathroomsadd modern refinement. Outside, a traditional built-in BBQ placed under the lemon trees enhances the aromas for a romantic dining experience under the stars, overlooking theprivate infinity pool and taking in the mountain air.
SKplace comprises three modern villas, superbly situated on the tranquil bay of Almyrida, with breathtaking views across the Aegean Sea and magnificent panoramic views of the White Mountains.
Each villa reflects a different architectural approach with either traditional Cretan (Villa Anemos), island style (Villa Ammos) or modern – minimal (Almyra Residence) characteristics. From the peace and serenity of the private grounds, a gentle stroll leads to the sandy beach and pretty cove, lined with romantic waterside tavernas. The location is ideal for exploring the surrounding countryside, ancient archaeological sites and the historical yet modern town of Chania with its beautiful Venetian harbour. Each villa has its own peaceful setting of mature gardens and a private swimming pool -heated on request-overlooking the sea. Impressive glass doors open onto balconies and terraces with spectacular views. The high quality accommodation features 'Dux' Swedish bedding, deluxe outdoor furniture and all modern conveniences including electronic control systems for Satellite TV, music and air-conditioning/heating. We also offer a 5 star hospitality service for an unforgettable holiday experience.
Parking area for 6 cars (2 allocated per villa). Automatic night lighting. Remote control entrance gates and 24/7 Security.
Pavlos and Katerina Papadaki
SK Place was a dream inspired by the unspoilt beauty of the land handed down by our grandfathers, the traditional architecture of Crete and the youthful vibrancy of our children. This dream became a reality in 2008 when we built Villa Ammos, Villa Anemos and Almyrida Residence.
Pavlos is a qualified architect trained in Milan. His work is based in the town of Chania, where he has run his own design and build practice since 1985. Katerina is a financial accountant and manager working since 1985 with Pavlos in his architectural-construction studio and her passion is interior design. Stella and Kostantinos are our kids and we named SK Place after them because we wished them to know that they too belong to this land of our forefathers.

This place is the first one in all our years of travelling around Europe that has ticked all our boxes. The villas are in a very safe and very well looked after enclosed compound - close enough to the lovely beach and resort for restaurants and facilities, but outside enough to avoid noise, traffic etc - they offer privacy from each other, are very spacious, beautifully decorated (we stayed in Ammos), have everything you may need for your stay, from 1st aid kit, to incense burners and candles to keep mosquitoes away in the evenings. The pool is in excellent condition, impeccably clean and the grounds are beautifully manicured. We found space, beauty, relaxation, fun and delicious meal times, particularly with the breathtaking sunsets in the background, all in one place. We are a small family - our daughter is 4, and found the place very safe for her. She particularly loved the swimming pool, which was heated and that made a massive difference to how wonderful it was to get in the water (and never want to get out!).
The lovely Lily comes in every day with a big smile on her face to ensure we dint have to lift a finger with the house work. She was efficient and discreet. A gem.
However, what sets this place above others, is not just the fantastic design and decoration, but the thoroughly thoughtful personal attention and service Katerina offers. From the personal welcome, toys for our daughter, her own grown olive oil, and absolutely delicious and very locally source items in the welcome basket, to the recommendation to make orange juice from the very large amount of oranges (amongst many other fruits) she offered. We wanted rest, peace and privacy, we didn't hire a car and she made sure we knew how to make the most of our stay with her recommendations for us. She is someone that knows what it takes to be a host, and delight customers. We feel very lucky we found this place and spend the most wonderful 10 days. Very grateful to Katerina and her husband for making this place happen
Our stay was perfect, better than we had imagined. very warm friendly helpful owner, generally we felt that what you get told about hospitality of the Greeks!
Thank you so much Catherine, thank you Greece.
It is sheer bliss to stay at Anemos. You can see from the photos how beautiful the villa is but in reality it is just absolutely stunning. Great location because of the sea in front of you and the mountains to the left. It is just perfect to look out with the infinity pool and not be able to see where the pool ends and the sea begins. Inside the villa is not only very stylish but comfortable too. It is hard to leave the villa to explore this lovely island. The villa, pool and gardens are kept meticulously clean and well maintained. The restaurants are ten minutes away and the quality of food and wine that you can buy is excellent. Finally, Katernina one of the owners could not be more helpful.
In our experience, as villas go, this is the best and also the most expensive that we have stayed in. Very comfortable and most importantly very clean and well looked after.
Gorgeous views and not at all a disappointment from the photographs on the website.
The villas are at the top end of the market in this area and the only thing that disappointed us was not the villa itself but the fact that there is nothing much to match it in terms of luxury in the surrounding area in terms of restaurants and buying food.
We enjoyed our stay at villa Ammos.
Great view, elegant modern house with all required modern facilities.
To be higly recommended.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Anemos Villa. Pavlos and Katerina were great hosts - very helpful. The villa is elegant, nicely appointed and very comfortable. The view is unsurpassed. It was a wonderful week and we highly recommend for others and hope to be back ourselves!
How lovely to hear from you. We are so pleased that we had a chance to meet you. All I can say is that I would have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful place to anyone! We had such a fantastic time. So relaxing and so romantic. Villa Ammos turned out to be everything that you promised and more! The views are truly sensational and certainly amongst the best we have ever seen. The standard of accommodation was first class and we were most impressed with your ongoing service and attention.We found the location to be ideal for exploring this beautiful area of Crete and the hospitality of the people along the way was a joy to experience.The choice of activities and restaurants was particularly good and surprising for such a small place.We also enjoyed our time in wonderful Chania and the Venetian harbour which has to be one of the most picturesque places we have ever visited. Indeed, we have very fond memories of our holiday there and can't wait to return. Yours sincerely, Danka
