Only 150m from the beach

Kastelli will be constructed on historic ground of 1046 sqm, in the center of the Village. It is a combination of modern architecture incorporated into the village prefecture. Within the first glance, you will be reminded of a city center but with a closer look, you will feel the warmth of a smaller society.

The name “Kastelli” is inspired by the toponym of the area whereas Kalyves is a developing settlement between two hills with amazing views of the bay and the surrounding olive groves. Kastelli means castle and therefore we have dedicated each villa to the name of some of the famous castles of Crete.

Crete has always been claimed by all the armies that operated in the Mediterranean Region and for this reason, small and large castles are scattered all over the surface of the island, strong proof of the desire of the invaders to conquer it and of the conquerors to keep it under their rule.

The project

Kastelli is a new exclusive, modern – clean-line, elegant and high-standard Development, located only 150 m from the beach of Kalyves. It consists of 6 luxury villas that offer sea views and large terraces specifically designed for a very intimate and private atmosphere.

The main characteristic of the composition of the Development is the contrast between the solid ground floor made of stone and the lighter white volumes on the first floor. A big part of the design is also the privacy of each house. That is accomplished through an elaborate use of subtraction in both volumes, which creates private semi-outdoor spaces and big projective balconies.

This design gesture combined with the big opening that each house has, achieves a beautiful dialog of indoor and outdoor spaces. The solid elements and the prismatic recesses of the facades come into constant dialogue with the light-perforated railings of the balconies.


These explicitly private Villas are almost the same in size with spaces from 110 to 112 sqm. Each residence can captivate the sunlight within its walls. They are designed with extreme attention to detail in a modern style for easy care living. They extend to three floors including the Mezzanine.

The ground floor comprises three bedrooms, one of which is the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. The remaining two guest bedrooms share the second bathroom.

From the hall on the ground floor, there is access to the private patio and a 57M2 common swimming pool for villa Koules, Itzedin, Aptera and Firka. Villa Fortezza has a private pool of 15 sqm and Villa Gramvousa has a private pool of 19 sqm.

Arriving on the first floor you will find a beautiful living room that opens into 3 private terraces. There is also an open-plan kitchen and a WC. The floating stairs leading to the mezzanine with its amazing views and fabulous roof terrace are also located on this level.

All villas have an 8M2 storage/facility room under the common swimming pool, plus the convenience of a private parking space next to the entrance of the property with a pergola for shadow.

Kitchens & Bathrooms

Design, comfort & functionality

The kitchens are fully furnished, designed from high-quality Italian design with the brand STOSA to maximize functionality and comfort.

The bathrooms are designed with the same line of functional and simple elegance as the rest of the villa.


The quiet, relatively unspoiled village of Kalyves is 20 km east of Chania and 40 km west of Rethymno, on the north coast of Crete. The area manages to combine the scenery of woods, hills, and mountains as well as trees, with the amazing Greek sea and the original rustic Cretan architecture. The main sandy beach is about five hundred meters long, with big trees for natural shade. Along the beach, there is a number of taverns and cafes, to serve your appetite with traditional Cretan cooking.

The village is built in an amphitheater form along the beach among two hills and the river that divides the village in two aspects with graphics bridges which gives the area a totally different sight. Thanks to the rivers flowing through, Kalives is located in a fertile valley and is full of green and surrounded by olive groves. Due to this fertile soil and strategic geographical location at the entrance of Souda Bay, Kalives has been inhabited at least since the ancient times and this is something magical that you will see for your own.

Plaka and Almyrida

Almyrida is located only 4 km east of Kalyves and until recently, Almyrida was just a fishermen’s village but due to its wonderful Mediterranean climate, sandy beaches, and its beautiful nature, the village has recently become a popular destination. Almyrida has two, nice, sandy beaches, with shallow waters, safe for children on wave-free days. The two beaches are separated by a small rocky pier peninsula, with a small white chapel. The taverns on the beach are famous for fresh fish and delicious traditional Cretan food. There are regular bus services and taxis (for both Plaka and Almyrida) to/from the city of Chania.

The unspoiled countryside and the lush olive groves around Almyrida are ideal for hiking and exploration. Just 1km to the east there is the picturesque village of Plaka, which is the largest village in the region. Plaka is famous for its healthy climate, unforgettable sunset and the hospitality of the locals. Plaka has a lovely main square which is the focal point of the village. This is where locals and visitors, alike, meet in the cafeterias and tavern.
