About the property

Villa with private swimming pool, 3 bedrooms, suitable for 6-8 people

On the southeast coast of Crete, between Mirtos and Mithi and five minutes from the beach, you will find our holiday villa “Ston Efdomo Ourano? (“In Seventh Heaven'). This house with its modern furnishings, has three bedrooms suitable for accommodating 6 (up to 8) people, a fully equipped kitchen with all mod cons, and a beautiful swimming pool (35 m2) and lots of privacy. This is the beginning of a carefree holiday and unlimited enjoyment! This brand new holiday villa is set in a grove of olive trees, of which as many as possible have been preserved. Together with three others, the house is situated on a large plot of more than 7000 m2. As Ston Efdomo Ourano occupies the highest spot at 200 metres, you are assured of complete privacy.

The views from the terraces that encircle the villa are breathtaking – the Mediterranean Sea to the south, to the east the river-bed which runs down to the sea, a hill covered in olive trees to the west, and finally the Sarkina gorge to the north!

Furnishing: Ston Efdomo Ourano has a large, light living-room with two sofas, an open fireplace, a flat-screen TV, and a DVD and CD installation. The bookcase contains CDs and DVDs, as well as books.

The large, modern kitchen is fitted with all the equipment you may need, from an oven and combination microwave to a citrus press and dishwasher. There is a large dining table in the centre, where you can all sit down to eat or gather round for glass of lovely cold Retsina!

There are two bedrooms on the ground floor with two beds each and plenty of cupboard space. Between the bedrooms, there is a bathroom containing a sink, toilet, bath, shower and a washing machine.

A staircase in the living-room leads to the first floor and the third bedroom. This bedroom also has two beds and French windows opening onto the large roof terrace.

Guestbook comments from the owner

De naam van dit huis is zeer toepasselijk..... Veel privacy, rust, een prachtig zwembad, een zeer smaakvolle inrichting, goede bedden. En zo kan ik nog wel even doorgaan!

Een zeer luxe accommodatie die zijn geld dubbel en dwars waard is, ik heb van elke minuut genoten.

Het dorp Mirtos heeft een ongedwongen en veilige sfeer, een paar hele goede restaurantjes, gezellige boulevard.

Maar wil je lekker "thuis" koken? Ga naar de supermarkt, doe inkopen en kook in de mooie keuken waar alles ligt wat je nodig hebt. Eet op één van de terrassen met alleen het geluid van de krekels.

De laatste zonnestralen schijnen op het grote dakterras met prachtig uitzicht over het dal en de zee.

Een huis waar je je thuis voelt, een plek om nog een keer naar terug te gaan!

A truly relaxing holiday in a fabulous house

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, clean and peaceful and private house with a beautifully laid out pool area. We spent a few days just by the pool relaxing. Mirtos is small but is full of character and has a good choice of restaurants, the shops you need and a few tasteful souvenir shops for those holiday memories.

We went with two children (9) who had to be dragged from the pool, but found plenty to do in the local area. There are sandy beaches at Itanos (20mins drive) and Makrygialos if not keen on pebbly beaches. we didn't manage the local gorge but did drive the hour or so to Knossos which was fabulous.

Unfortunately, a week is never long enough, so we didn't make it to the many other sights nearby (the plateau, Agios Nikolaios, east coast......). The house has everything you need for a trouble free holiday, with caretakers on hand for any problems that may arise! Happy holidays

A peaceful, beautiful house, perfect for relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely, clean and private house with everything you need for a great holiday. The local small town is very friendly with a great choice of restaurants, local shops and a few tasteful shops for those nice souvenirs! The house is very well situated for a visit to Knossos - we drove there in an hour and a bit, through lovely scenery and the place itself is fascinating. Also, sandy beaches can be found at Macrygialos or on the north coast at Itanos (20mins)

We didn't manage to walk the local gorge (5mins drive) as the children were a bit too small for this (and we couldn't drag them away from the pool!). We spent a few very nice days lying round the pool relaxing. What more could you want?

October in 7th Heaven

  • 5 of 5

2-9 October 2010 we have been to/in 7th Heaven. All superlatives we did read on the website were confirmed: what a great villa, what a comfort, what a privacy and what a fantastic environment! By fast internet we could work/email and did not feel guilty for our home-front. It is clear that the owners are devoted to quality and comfortable living. The managers, Michaelis en Irini, who run a shop in Mirtos, are very nice people, they keep the villa in topcondition.The weather in October: 25-30°C and the swimmingpool not under 22°C surprised us. Certainly we'll come back! Corinne en Kees

We hebben in september 2010 een hemelse vakantie beleefd in de zevende hemel, als dit de zevende hemel is, ben ik benieuwd hoe het in DE hemel is.

Ongekende rust en privacy, enorm veel ruimte en luxe en je weet gewoon niet waar je moet gaan zitten, met alle terrasjes en zitjes.

Een privé zwembad van 35 m2 en een pizza steenoven en barbeque maken het geluk compleet.

Het huis is zeer compleet ingericht, de huiskamer is voorzien van een plasma tv met Nederlandse zenders, DVD speler, veel DVD´s en boeken.

De keuken is zeer compleet, met 2(!) koelkasten, keramische kookplaten enz. enz.

De bedden zijn goddelijk en één van de slaapkamers heeft een dakterras van ongekende grootte, waar je 's avonds heerlijk naar de sterren kunt kijken.

Kortom; ongekende luxe in een villa, waar we ZEKER weer terugkomen.

Omdat foto's meer zeggen dan woorden heb ik een aantal foto's online gezet op de niet commerciële website www.mithi.nl

Wijna, Dirk, Irini, Michaelis, dank voor 'n onvergetelijke vakantie

What a week!

  • 5 of 5

Last June (5th - 12th of June) our family (me and my wife, two teenage daugthers) spent a wonderful week at 'Ston efdomo ourano' near the village of Mirtos in the south-eastern part of Crete. We know Crete well, having spent several holidays on the island but never visited this area. Well, we certainly were surprised in a very positive way. What can I say about the villa? This is a very complete and comfortable house situated on a quiet hilltop a few kilometres from Mirtos, overlooking the sea to the south and the mountain area to the north. The villa offers a spacious living room, a fully equiped kitchen and three double bedrooms with great beds. All rooms have airconditioning. Outside there's a well kept garden with olive trees and all kinds of plants and several shady terraces (one with a pizza oven) where you can relax, eat and drink and above all: enjoy the surrounding landscapes and the stillness of the area. Occassionally a car passes by on the road below heading towards the tiny villages up in the mountains. On top of this there's a swimmingpool - clean and well proportioned. This is just what we needed after the several trips we made along the coast and into the mountain area of South Crete. The beaches in Tertsa - a village a few kilometres west of Mirtos - are sandy and very quiet. Tertsa is a friendly spot with several good tavernas. Keep driving along the coast and you'll run into other villages and deserted beaches. Most of all we enjoyed our trips into the mountains - this is Crete at it's very best: isolated hamlets with inhabitants stilll leading the farming life their great-grandparents used to live, a wellcoming atmosphere,breathtaking views of landscapes and tasty Cretan food wherever and whenever you want it. Don't forget to visit the abandoned villge of Kalami.

Mirtos itself offers a good deal of resaturants of which the Italian Ca Nova is without doubt our favourite. Delicious pizzas and pastas! Good Greek food is being served in several other restaurants along the seafront. On mainstreet Mirtos you'll find Hotel Mirtos an excellent choice serving original Greek specialties. But more than once we prepared lunch and dinner at home enjoying the luxury of 'our' villa. At night we watched the sun go down and after a final plunge into the pool we ended the day by watching a movie (there's an extensive collection of books and quality dvd's at the house). Yes, Ston efdomo ourano' offers life as it should be. Until next year!

A piece of Heaven

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous time at your villa. It was very comfortable and well equipped. We enjoyed the pool everyday and made use of the wooden oven by making our own pizzas and roasting some chickens. We loved the little seating area to the side of the villa with views over the hills, it provided good shade in the heat of the day. Robert and Anna were very friendly and helpful with good advice for sightseeing.

We will definitely be returning to Crete, everyone was so friendly and there seems such a lot more to explore.
