Located on the southeast side of Crete, next
to the Chrysoskalitissa Monastery and a few steps before the
marvelous Elafonissi beach, is the newly built villa complex “Nireides”.
According to Greek mythology, the Nireides (Nereids)
were nymphs, representing aspects of the sea. They were
daughters of Nireas and Oceanis Doris and grand-daughters of
on the Nireides in Greek Mythology.
The Nireides Villas in Crete are built at the
southwestern most end of the Chania Prefecture. Here in this
unique untouched location, the Cretan waters come together with
the Libyan Sea creating spectacular views and sunsets.
The drive from Chania
airport takes approximately 1 1/2 hours. There are two routes,
either following the road west through Sfinati, which overlooks
the infinite blue of the open sea, or by crossing the inner
country, through the unique gorge of Topolia. Both drives are
excellent and full of natural beauty and striking landscape
