Nestoros is a modern 3 bedroom Premier Villa. Tucked away on the hills around Almyrida but close enough to the wonderful beaches of the area, the property is an oasis of privacy designed with tradition in mind but with all modern comforts and style.

Nestoros has stone walls and beautiful high wooden ceilings, fantastic views over the village and the sea in the distance and comfortable pool area for outdoor living. Big windows and balconies invite the olive groves and the magnificent views inside. This home is in harmony with its surrounding environment and it has been developed in the traditional Cretan ways with stone floors that keep cool in those hot summer days.

    This is the third time my family and I have stayed at Nestoros and once again the accommodation was outstanding. Such a beautiful setting, with panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, together with the wonderful aromas of lavender, the whole vicinity is superb for relaxing. The villa has evolved majestically over the years we have stayed there, both inside and out. As ever, the interior is cool and stylish with glimpses of the magical views everywhere you turn. Outside is just a delight too, either by the stunning swimming pool or on one of the numerous balconies, where we often did yoga or "headspace"; there is no where better to enhance your well being! Despite its remoteness, we loved the fact that you can walk in 10 minutes to the authentic Greek village of Gavalochori from the villa and enjoy a super meal at one of the village's Tavernas.We were hosted so warmly by the owners, who made us feel so special.  So another fabulous family holiday in the luxurious Nestoros and we will return for sure.

    We have just returned from a week at Villa Nestotos.This property is extremely difficult to fault. The pictures on their website look impressive, but we've seen pictures before of other properties that have flattered to deceive. No such problems here. The villa "in the flesh" is even better, it's significantly more spacious than I was expecting. There's a fantastic north-facing balcony for fresh air and a cooling breeze, and a terrace leading to the swimming pool, which was the obvious spot when eating in.The pool area is immaculate, the quality of the outdoor furnishings is outstanding.Both main bedroom suites are brilliantly spacious, with top-quality en-suites (only the middle floor has a bath but the showers are excellent), and stay naturally very cool. Both also have balconies/terraces, and the lower suite also has its own small lounge. On the same floor as this suite is a smaller bedroom which is perfect for children. I've stayed in a fair few villas and generally compromises have to be made - but not here. The best villa I've ever stayed in, bar none.
