Harmony and tranquility in a serene atmosphere
Athermigo is a period villa in the picturesque village of Gavalohori outside the historic town of Chania. The fully-serviced villa can be rented as a whole to accommodate parties of up to 10 people or as individual self-contained Cottages each sleeping between 2 and 4 people.
A 250 year-old olive oil press has been recently restored to create an elegant boutique-style villa that combines discreet rural chic with all the amenities that holidaymakers expect. Guests in all three accommodation units share a luxurious lounge and kitchen as well as the courtyard and garden with its secluded private swimming pool.
Our team is on-hand to provide anything you may wish for. We can arrange car rental, restaurant booking, excursions and much more – in effect combining a hotel experience with the privacy and exclusivity of a villa holiday. By arrangement we can even extend the service to include lunch, dinner and party catering at the villa.
The name Athermigo is derived from the traditional olive pressing process that is typical of the locality. The three deluxe accommodation units are named after the trees on the property: Elia (Olive tree), Rodia (Pomegranate tree) and Karydia (Walnut tree). Enjoy a perfect rural retreat on Crete with services to match your needs.
Architecture & History
Villa Athermigo is an ancient monument, a remarkable example of local, traditional architecture.
Elements such as the main entrance, the stone openings, the interior patio, the traditional exterior oven (where the reception area of the Villa is located), the well and the semi-circular arches typical of the architecture of the time, as well as the original oil extraction machinery, have all been preserved intact. This renovation process resulted in a luxurious and contemporary villa complex.
