About the property

4 Bedroom Self-catering Villa With Sea and mountain view & privacy, Sleeps 2-8

The villa is located on a hillside, overlooking the sea. It boasts fantastic sweeping views over unspoilt countryside filled with olive groves down to the sparking azure sea. It offers a fantastic degree of privacy, and there are very few signs of habitation as far as the eye can see. However as the the bustling harbour of Makrigialos is only 3 kms away, you have privacy without sacrificing convenience. With the car you can easily reach the numerous tavernas, shops and unspoilt beaches throughout your holiday stay.

The villa offers particularly spacious accommodation with a total of 4 bedrooms (3doubles-1single) arranged over two floors and two lovely terraces, one on the ground floor at the front of the house and the other on the first floor leading off one of the bedrooms. The traditional feel of the house, which strikes you immediately upon swing the thick stone-walled exterior as you approach along the rough track leading to the house, is echoed in the interiors which have been furnished with family heirlooms and antiques. The bedrooms have lovely old iron bedsteads with decorative metalwork and modern floors and shutters.The very special living area boasts an open fireplace and to one side is a large well equipped kitchen area with a full oven and fridge. All the bedrooms on the first floor have attractive sloping ceilings,and from the single bedroom there is access to a large terrace at the front of the house which is a perfect spot to sit in the quiet of the late evening and watch for shooting stars.Outside is the pool area with the BBQ, equipped with large table and chairs and also a garden.

A house in the middle of nature

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated a few minutes' walk or drive from beautiful beaches with calm transparent water - a pleasure for swimming. The house is a ranch house it is located in the middle of an olive plant. Sitting outside by the pool, we enjoyed beautiful view and magical atmosphere. The house itself is furnished with good taste. It is not a luxury house but we found the kitchen and bedrooms to be cozy and comfortable. Dispensable goods (e.g. toilet paper) were minimal. The owners were very hospitable and friendly. Overall, this is the "un-touristic Crete" the feeling is like a local and not like a tourist, the area is wild, and secluded perfect for those who love nature, quietness, and privacy. We enjoyed and recommend.

Beautiful House, quiet area, very friendly owners!

  • 5 of 5

The House is located in a perfect place between mountain and sea! Ideal for those who need to relax! It was very clean and tidy and i loved the decoration. George and Rena where very friendly and kind and helped us a lot to discover south-east Crete! We'd certainly visit you again in the future...

Beautiful quiet place near lovely beaches

  • 3 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet place with a lot of privacy this is the place to go! You have no neighbours en you have a lovely vieuw on the hills and the sea. There are not much tourists en if you drive along the road you can find beautifull beaches just for yourself and the water is very clear. There are also some nice walks through the gorges. In the village below there is are some shops and restaurants. We loved to be outsite by the pool, but we weren't very pleased about the decorating inside the house. It was a bit to old for us and not our taste. But the owners were very kind and helpfull. They helped us getting in the house again when we had locked ourselves out: we forgot to put the key on the outside of the door. We were warned about it, but unfortunately it still happened....

Cretan ocean dreams in olive grove

  • 5 of 5

We just loved it. The house is located in a beautiful and lonely olive grove with wonderful views to the ocean. Lovely tavernas are close by and a small town to shop. Also lots of empty beaches with amazing underwater life. We will definitely come back not least to see our two hosts again and share a Greec coffee. We told all our friends about our lovely house and stay and still wish we could have stayed forever.
