DIRECTIONS FROM CHANIA AIRPORT TO VILLA AFRATI

On leaving the gates of Chania Airport travel 600m passing a taverna (airport café) and Shell Petrol station on your right and bear LEFT following the sign Chania 14 km & Rethymnon 69.

Continue 2,6km until the junction with the roundabout – turn RIGHT following signs for Chania. You will see the ELDA petrol station on your right.

Continue for 4.3kms passing through Aroni village and some bends. The road widens and you will pass a turn off to your right-signposted Kounoupidiana, Stavros and Technical University of Crete. Continue straight ahead uphill and shortly after is a roundabout. You will need to take the 2 nd exit off the roundabout RIGHT which is signposted Souda & Rethymon.

Drive carefully on this road as it winds downhill with some very sharp bends and with magnificent views across Souda Bay (for passengers to enjoy!). Continue winding downhill for approx. 5.8 km until you reach a set of traffic lights with the SYNKA Supermarket on your right hand side. As you get closer to sea level before the traffic lights you will pass a Shell Petrol Station on your left, you will arrive at a CROSSROADS with cafes and a fresh fish shop on either side of the road. SLOW DOWN here and then continue straight ahead for a further 200 metres until you reach a SET OF TRAFFIC LIGHTS where you should TURN RIGHT, with the SYNKA Supermarket on your right.

Follow the sign Rethymnon 56. Continue again for 300 metres and at the large junction TURN LEFT following the sign for HERAKLION & RETHYMNON & KISSAMOS. Do not follow the Chania sign here as it will take you straight into the town centre. (Taking care as you turn to give way to oncoming traffic).

After a further 500 metres you will be approaching the highway. Go under the bridge and turn LEFT onto the slip road that joins the highway following the signs for Rethymnon 55. (Please note that the speed limit on the highway is 90km/hour when not indicated otherwise). Continue on the highway for a total of 12,5km.

Look out for the large exit signposted Kalyves & Armenoi . (If you miss this you will be going quite a ways out of your way as it is illegal to make a “U” turn on the highway, so don’t miss this exit!). Come off the highway RIGHT following the Kalyves sign. Turn LEFT at the bottom of the slip road & go under the bridge.

After 900m you will arrive at a T junction with a minimarket with fresh fruit n veg in front of you- TURN RIGHT following the sign for Tsivaras & Mun. of Vamos. Continue uphill for 800m, taking care on the two sharp bends. When you start to see lots of road signs, TURN SHARP LEFT following the signs for Almerida 3.

It is useful at this point to refer to Map 20a. Once you pass the petrol station, you will then start entering Almirida – a very sharp left hand bend with the taverna Lagos is on the right. Start to indicate right & TURN RIGHT at the Pear Tree Minimarket which is about 50m ahead.

You are now bypassing Almerida seafront, continue for 200m until a stop sign at a junction with a baker on the left & a large telegraph pole in the middle of the road. Go STRAIGHT at the stop sign, which is left of the yellow house opposite, passing the Omega Divers shop on the left and follow the sign Kokkino Chorio 4 & Plaka 2.

Shortly after you will pass a pharmacy on the right. Continue on this road which leads out of Almerida and climbs uphill, taking care on a couple of sharp bends on the way up. You will soon be passing a village sign for Plaka as you come into the village & there is a sharp right hand bend by an old school. Shortly after you will come to the center of Plaka village square with a mini market on the left & on your right a side street with a few tavernas/cafes. O Harokopos is one of them on the right.

CONTINUE STRAIGHT on this road passing through the village of Plaka. Ignore a turning right for Kokkino Chorio which is opposite a 2 nd mini market as you leave the village of Plaka and continue STRAIGHT. From this mini market take a note of your kilometers, the driveways for the villas is a further 900m. Continue along this road as you leave Plaka & look out for a sign for two villas Imola & Infinity Blue, after the turning for these villas you will pass the driveway for Villa Zara (freshly tarmacked & has an arch overhead) & immediately after is the driveway for Villa Afrati, TURN RIGHT & you will need to use the small door on the right to go in the grounds & get the key with the remote to open the large gate & park inside the grounds.

Please keep both gates shut at all times. Follow the path to the side of the house & take the stairs up to the main terrace under the archway where the front door is located.
