This 5 star luxury villa is overlooking the bay of Chania and embraces the sea like no other in the area. It is one of the very few to offer direct access to the sea over a private pathway leading to the rocky coastline.
The area of Akrotiri offers lovely sandy beaches, traditional local taverns and picturesque sights. It is largely unspoilt by tourism, assuring a quiet retreat for your stay. It is yet ideally located whatever type of holiday you are looking forward to.
The villa is located a few hundred meters northwest of the town of Tersanas, with its local beach and waterfront tavern.
If you want to live the laid back Cretan life, you will find several traditional local taverns within a few minutes drive, where you can enjoy the healthy and tasty local Cretan kitchen.
You will of find several cozy sandy beaches in the direct neighbourhood (amongst which Stavros, famously known from the movie “Zorba the Greek”) or you can take a trip to the rocky mountainside to visit the Moni Kirias monastery and the small and intimate creek of Pelagos.
If you are more into nightlife, shopping or visiting ancient cities, take a 20-30 minute drive along the shoreline to the old Venetian harbour city of Chania, where you’ll find everything from day cruises to nightclubs, fashion, shops and world cuisine restaurants. Nevertheless, Chania has managed to remain one of the most preserved and authentic antique cities of Crete and is definitely worth some trips.
If you want to discover two of the most amazing beaches of the Mediterranean, plan a daytrip to Elafonisos and at least a half-day trip to Kissamou.
The villa is only a 15-20 minute drive from Chania Airport (served amongst others by Ryanair) and 2 hours from Heraklion airport.
Designed by a sea lover, 3 of the 4 master bedrooms and both living rooms assure breath-taking panoramic views over the turquoise bay. From the minimalistic architecture to the quality of the construction and the exclusive interior design and furniture, no compromise has been made. This luxurious villa is clearly the ideal retreat for a demanding clientele, as it has primarily been designed as the lifetime dream of its owner, not as a rental estate.
Enjoy a cold drink on one of the terraces, dive into the warm water of the infinity pool or simply relax on the "dream area" halfway down to the sea. If you prefer the fresh sea to the cozy pool, take the rocky pathway to the sea and enjoy a salty swim in complete privacy.
Dine on the terrace and enjoy nothing else than some tasteful local wine, the gentle sound of the waves and the romantic sunset... apart of course from the valued company of your family or friends.
