Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Daratsos - Villa Zaimis

Truly exquisite, unobstructed views out over the historic bay of Crete.

Built atop steep hill spanning five levels of sleek and sophisticated architectural design, Villa Zaimis is a modern palace standing high above the historic Chania Old Town.

The immaculately manicured garden and private pool provide guests with a stunning viewpoint across the Venetian harbour that is just moments from the house. Equally you are also only a matter of minutes from the golden sands of Western Crete’s much loved beaches.

At Villa Zaimis there's such variety that each guest is bound to find their own personal joy, and there is enough space that your holiday can be just as communal or private as you like, with each room providing an idyllic setting for a different occasion.

With so many memories to be made at the villa and such high-level services on offer, you might find it difficult to leave your comfort to explore all the island has to offer! Make sure you do though, as Crete is an island with a long and rich history, and so much sun-soaked natural beauty to discover.

Light and views of blue enter through the central light dome of the villa and the floor to ceiling windows. The living and dining areas combine simplicity and sumptuousness.

The 5 bedrooms have absolute privacy from each other due to the intricate plan of the villa.

Master 1: The joy of sensuousness. King size bed, Jacuzzi tub, and spectacular view.

Master 2: The joy of freedom. Queen size bed, shower room, sitting area. Its

large terrace boasts the most breathtaking view.

Bedrooms 3 and 4: 2 twin beds and 1 king and a queen size bed respectively. They share a full bathroom.

Guest Suite: A fifth bedroom is part of an adjoining suite, with its own kitchenette and bathroom.

Exterior grounds

A series of tended terraces lead up the hilly landscape to the house and pool. The large pool is exclusive to Villa Zaimis dwellers' pleasure. It is divided into two sections - a circular shallower jacuzzi whose water cascades into the larger almond shaped

deeper section.

The poolside and garden offer spots both of cool shade and radiant light, as well

as privacy and an infinite view.

Villa Zaimis is located just outside the ancient city of Chania, a city that has seen many civilisations come and go over thousands of years of settlement, from Minoans to Romans, Byzantine to Ottoman, this rich history has carved out a unique and mysterious town.

Most of the restaurants, museums, churches and craft shops centre around the gorgeous Venetian harbour, which represents a window into the past Turkish and Venetian architecture that has otherwise largely been destroyed by war. Watching the sunset past the old lighthouse is a truly unmissable experience, but the area offers a different picturesque aesthetic at any given time of day.

The dramatic, mountainous interior of Crete is also well worthy of exploration, remaining unspoilt and largely unchanged for hundreds of years. Incredible churches, and sleepy little villages are hidden round every bend as you wind your way across the sun baked landscape.

Be sure to sample the fresh fish they pull in from the harbour each day, or even take a boat out and do some fishing or snorkeling yourself!
