About the property

he Villa Royal Nest is a detached modern house of 110m2, built in 2014 with a wonderful view to the Libean Sea. It is situated just outside of the village Pitsidia ¬_ a short walk of 10 minutes. The Villa is built in a site of 800m2, suitable for various activities and there is also a beautiful garden.

The house is accessible from both sides. A staircase leads to the porch from where we can see the 30m2 swimming pool, surrounded by lawn. The view is fantastic! Olive trees, vineyards, figtrees and in the horizon the sea and the small islands of Paximadia.

As we enter the house we find ourselves in the modern, bright living room. There are tow sofas, a sideboard, some shelves and a T.V. A big glass door leads to the porch.

Next, there is the dining room and the spacious kitchen. It is equipped with a fridge, a freezer, a dishwasher, a cooker, oven, coffee machine, a kettle, a toaster and everything necessary in a kitchen.

Next to the living room there is the master bedroom with a double bed (1x80x2.00), T.V. balcony and its own bathroom.

Upstairs, there is another bedroom with a double bed (1x80x2.00), and a T.V. and a second bedroom with bunkbed, suitable for children.

Both bedrooms share the same veranda.

There is also a bathroom there with a washing machine and a hairdryer.

Of course, all the rooms are air conditioned.

The Area

The Villa is situated in a quiet place, near the picturesque village of Pitsidia _ 10 minutes by foot. In the village you can find a Mini market, Baker’s, traditional tavernas, cafés, rent a car, hairdresser’s and a Horse farm for a house ride, if you wish. In the village square, many music festivals take place during the summer.

Around 4km away from Pitsidia is the picturesque fishing village of Matala, famous in 1960’s because of the “hippies” who lived there.Every year in July, an international music festival is organized.

I would also recommend a visit to the beach of “Kokkini Ammos” ( Red Sand), a fantastic beach next to Matala, accessible only by foot.

But the best beach is the one of “Komos”. It is around 20 minutes by foot, from the Villa and it is an amazing sandy beach of 5km, ideal for walks. There you can also try canoeing. Part of this beach is for nudists.

In the area there is another wonderful beach :Agiofaraggo:, one of the most impressive beaches of Crete, worth visiting. It is in the exit of a Gorge, surrounded with high rocks, pebbles, sand and emerald waters.

In addition, we must remind to mention the Archeological sites of Festos, Agia Triada, Gortys and of course t Matala caves.

beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Second family holiday in this fantastic villa. Quality furnishings and fittings, beautifully maintained gardens with lots of space. A fresh breeze keeping us cool on upper level. The house has amazing views to Paximadia and beyond. Amazing hospitality from the owners, just made us feel so welcome. The best villa we have ever stayed in and will return every chance we get, already looking forward to 2017.

Outstanding Villa

  • 5 of 5

You will get a lot more than you expect. The villa itself is new and tastefully furnished with a very high standard. The location is quit and with spectacular see an mountain views, although it takes only a five minute drice to matala.

The Owner familiy was very friendly. When arriving, a big welcome basket with wine, Tsikoudia, self-made olive oil and fruits whe waiting for us. Not to forget the self-baked cake- amazing!!

The owners also arranged a barbeque together with our neigbours with several self-made greek specialities. We never had such great hospitality. Thanks to Costas and his whole familiy. We will definitely return!

Wunderschönes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie, 2 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder im Alter von 8, 9 und 12 Jahren) haben unsere diesjährigen Pfingstferien in der Villa Royal Nest verbracht und haben uns rundherum wohl gefühlt. Die Fotos halten, was sie versprechen, eigentlich ist das Haus in Wirklichkeit noch schöner. Alles ist neu und mit sehr viel Geschmack eingerichtet, von den Möbeln über die Handtücher bis zur Bettwäsche. In der Küche wurde wohl nachgerüstet, uns hat es an nichts gefehlt. Auch wir wurden von den sehr bemühten Vermietern herzlich und mit einem leckeren Essen begrüßt. Die Lage des Hauses außerhalb von Pitsidia ist wunderschön: man sieht auf der einen Seite die Berge, vom Garten und der Terrasse aus das Meer. Pitsidia ist bequem zu Fuß zu erreichen. Wir können das Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen und kommen gerne einmal wieder!

Sehr schönes und ruhig gelegenes Haus mit Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben als Familie 2 Wochen Ferien in der Villa verbracht. Das Haus ist quasi neu, sehr komfortabel, wunderschön gelegen. Es lässt sich in der Übergangszeit auch heizen, der Pool ist klein aber fein und die Familie des Vermieters sehr bemüht (wir bekamen ein typisch kretisches Gericht aus dem Steinofen zur Begrüssung).

Einzig die Küchenausrüstung wäre noch zu ergänzen, wenn man gerne zu Hause kocht, dann fehlt doch das eine oder Andere.
