The Pegasus maisonettes give the guest a much appreciated privacy and is ideally situated – within easy reach of Almirida’s facilities and lovely sandy beach.

Each of the eight beautifully furnished and comfortable two-bedroom, two-bathroom maisonettes are built on two levels with the bedrooms on the upper level and the open plan living / kitchen space on the ground floor.

The apartments have a large patio accessed from the living area and one of the bedrooms has a private balcony with sea views. The lovely, large swimming pool with its spacious terrace sits picture-perfect at the front of the accommodation with great views of the sea and mountains and comes complete with BBQ area.

Pegasus’ excellent location and design means that each apartment has idyllic sea views and every guest can enjoy the spectacular evening sunsets. The owners, Stelios and Maria, a young and very hospitable Cretan couple, will do everything possible to ensure you have a fabulous holiday.

We arrived at Pegasus in a taxi directly from the airport. As we pulled up Maria and her trusty spaniel Poppy were there to greet us and take us up to our maisonette. There are eight in total, the internet pictures show the accomodation and pool area in a true light. My immediate impression was wow, this place is spotless. The ground floor has a living area with a balcony overlooking the pool, a kitchen and a toilet / shower room. Wooden stairs lead to the first floor where there are 2 bedrooms and another toilet / shower room. The… Read more »

This apartment is lovely and in a perfect location, just 5 mins up the hill from the main village. It has a wonderful view over the bay, a great place to watch the sun go down. Easy walk to the beach. The apartments are well looked after and the owners take good care of the grounds and pool. The swimming pool was rarely busy. On several days we had the pool to ourselves. Almyrida has a good choice of restaurants. I recommend the Dream Boat trip (speed boat/snorkelling trip). Our girls (age 9 and 12) loved it. Very fast, interesting… Read more »

Lovely apartment and pool. Very clean. Maria was very friendly. A short stroll down to the beach and a short hike up again at the end of the day.
We had a great time. Would suit families; it was quiet and near to the beach and restaurants. We didn’t need a car.

Det perfekta stället med närhet till det mesta, stränder, tavernor, Chania 25 min bort om man vill ha lite mer liv o rörelse.
gott om plats i lägenheten, bra utrustat, härlig pool.
Maria med familj tar hand om allt man kan tänkas behöva.

The perfect place close to everything, beaches, tavernas, Chania, 25 minutes away if you want a bit more life o motion.
plenty of room in the apartment, well equipped, lovely pool.
Maria with the family takes care of everything you might need.

A perfect family holiday. We can’t wait to return again with our fourteen year old daughter and eight year old son. Being perched on the hillside slightly above the beach meant you had a pleasant breeze and breathtaking views of the mountains – glorious sunrises and sunsets. The pool was a great size and the gardens lovingly maintained by the very kind owners . The walk to and from the beach and the town was fine – steep on the way up but well worth it for staying in such a special setting. The maisonette itself was spacious and well… Read more »

We had an excellent holiday at Pegasos Maisonettes. Maria and family were very welcoming and helpful and we loved meeting Poppy too. The apartments are spotless and so is the pool area. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet which suited us perfectly as we are not keen on having to jostle for pool space or late night parties!! Location was great as it is a few minutes walk down hill to the village and you have all the local tavernas and shops on your door step – we would not hire a car next time as we didn’t need it… Read more »

Pegasus maisonettes, Crete. 5 mins walk up from the beach/village results in an excellent views of the bay from 2 balconies. Profile featured is what you get. 2 storey, 2 bedrooms, spacious living room, air conditioned, clean and well equipped. Linen changed twice in our week. Reassuring to have owners living on site. And they were very helpful. Pool, lovely facility and worth the extra expense. Highly recommend. Almyrida is a great family resort, with old and new Tavernas. ‘Ektor’ fast rib boat trip to caves and snorkelling, great fun.

The apartment is fantastic, the friendly community and everything you could want is a short walk away. The building and pool area are immaculate. Maria and her family are wonderful. If you wish to see more of Crete, a car is necessary. We enjoyed many excursions to see as much as possible while there but no matter where we ventured, we were always happy that we chose the Pegasos Maisonettes and Almyrida as our vacation home. We would definitely return.

Having come here in 2014 and loved every second of it, we decided to come back here again this year, but just me and My fiancee. Upon arrival we were greeted by the very friendly Maria, who gave us our key, informed us we could pay whenever we wanted (either start, during or after the holiday!) which was handy due to me not having the money until mid holiday, she also booked us transfers from Chania Airport which was easy, and was waiting upon us landing. Maria had even brought some Bread, cheese, ham, salad & water which was already… Read more »

Trivsamt och familjärt boende i mycket fräsch lägenhet, med en stor terass där vi njöt av solens upp- och nedgång, utsikten över havet och byn Almyrida. Servicen och bemötandet från värdparet var varmt och gästvänligt. Utmärkta möjligheter till vandringar längs naturstigar, genom olivlundar, vingårdar, citrusodlingar till bergsbyar där vi kunde avnjuta lunch på lokala tavernor. Fina upplevelser och minnen får oss att längta tillbaka. Cozy and family-friendly accommodation in very nice apartment, with a large terrace where we enjoyed the sunrise and sunset, the view of the sea and the village of Almyrida. The service and the hospitality of the… Read more »

Our holiday party consisted of me, my husband and two grown up daughters, whose interests are mainly archaeological and classical, but for whom good weather is very important! I dealt directly with Authentic Crete who rent out these apartments and had no problems. They were incredibly helpful and answered all my queries promptly. Our Pegasos maisonette was most impressive. It had all the kitchen facilities you would want in excellent condition, as was the rest of the place. With two daughters the extra bathroom was more than necessary! It proved to be a comfortable home from home with amazing views… Read more »

Very nice place, above the village with sights of the sea, beach and hilltops
Good size appartment, impeccably maintained, like the swimming pool and the other facilities
The owner, Maria, lodges on site and is nice and helpful

We preferred to go to the beach in the next village, Kalyves (Almyrida is better for going out at night)

Wir waren zwar alleine, aber alles war tadellos und in einem Top-Zustand. Die Gastgeberin war sehr freundlich, zurückhaltend und professionell. Sauber und gepflegt. Sehr empfehlenswert. Der Standort ist eine gute Basis für Ausflüge. Und zu Fuss kommt man gut ins Dorf oder an den Strand, ohne weit marschieren zu müssen.

Excellent Hosting from you. Thanks a lot. We appreciated your Support very much. We wish you a good winter and a successfull start into the new season next spring 2014. Maja und Roland, Switzerland

I find that you never really know what you’re going to get when booking a holiday online. In the past, we have tended to book private villas with pools – Those holidays work well for us. And we have always been fairly lucky – though, of course, some holidays are ‘better’ than others. Well this year, I struggled to find an affordable private villa since I left it very late to book our holiday! I decided that a small complex with a large shared pool would suit our family now that our kids are a little older (15 and 12… Read more »

We spent 1 week at Pegasos Maisonettes in october. 80 m2 very nice and well equipped apartment with fantastic view to the beach at Almyrida. The apartment was also very clean. The staff (Maria and husband) was helpful all the time at our stay. Large pool (clean) and many sunbeds. About 4 minutes walk to the beach and restaurants. The kids (10,12,16) enjoy their stay at Pegasos.

my partner , 3 boys and I stayed here a couple or three yrs ago, tho we booked thro a small crete company.We had a lovely relaxing time , the apartments were rather more spacious than predicted, clean and the service friendly from the maids etc. The pool was hardly ever oversubscribed and with a view to die for over the bay. Our apartment was No.1 on the end and had the extra of a built in BBQ unit by the side, boys loved this. Having been to many other places since, I was rather jaded and re-looked at this… Read more »

We visited the Almyrida area for the first time in late October 2012, staying in a delightful villa in the hill village of Gavalohori. We hit much better weather than we had expected and ended up driving down 2 or 3 times a day to swim in the fabulous sea at Almyrida – the water was still very warm and still as a millpond, with a stunning very gently shelving golden sandy beach. We decided we would return in 2013 and we asked round and looked online to see what was available that might suit us better. We found the… Read more »

Dear Ariadne,
We are back home in Uk now and getting used to the cold again! We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at the Pegasus Maisonettes. Although we have our own house in Kefalas it was very nice to stay in Almirida with Maria, she made us feel very welcome and I’m sure we will return!

We loved the Pegasos maisonettes – fabulous location and views of the bay, great proximity to the beautiful beach, really well designed apartment with 2 generous bedrooms upstairs, 2 great shower rooms and a lovely, large lower level kitchen/diner/sitting room.
3 big sunny balconies and all really comfortable. Maria and Stellos are great hosts.
