I’m half Greek (from western Crete) and half Norwegian. I speak fluent English, Norwegian, and Greek, and have lived and worked on Crete for many years but now reside in Norway. I have been running Almyra Villa Rentals (Norway) since 2010 with rental properties mainly on Crete. My previous background is foreign exchange brokerage, import and distribution of interior decoration, and real estate sales and development on Crete. I have chosen the properties with which I work based on my personal and selective criteria for a perfect holiday villa. This amazingly beautiful island and its people always make me look forward to coming back. I am fortunate enough to be able to spend the entire summer working on Crete. I wish you a wonderful holiday and will do my utmost to make it so!
