Villa Neptune

The villa is serenely nestled in a red rock hollow at Koutoulas Cape on the Keramoti beach next to the village Livadia. Like the ancient god Neptune, it towers above the waters of an amazing unexplored bay with only three small fishing houses offering a breathtaking view of the endless blue sea lying as far as the eye can see. The villa is designed to offer the ideal accommodation solution to people who set high standards when it comes to their holidays and who wish to combine relaxation in an enchanting place with comfort and luxury. Neptune will help you discover the endless blue magic of the Cretan sea and explore some stranded beaches and enchanting bays. At the same time, you will get a chance to charge your batteries and find serenity and relaxation in the wild and magnificent nature of western Crete.

MORE INFO www.elafonisivillas.gr

Description Elafonisi villas - Livadia: The villas is located in the seaside village of Livadia, Keramoti bay, Innahorion, in the south western part of Crete, at a distance of 72 km from Chania and 31 km from Kissamos. The villa can be accessed through a 4 km long road that is connected to the regional provincial road. The village is located in the middle of the European hiking path E4– a seaside route of exceptional natural beauty- that starts at the village of Kambos and continues through the villages of Keramoti, Livadia, Chryssoskalitissa and Elafonisi. The route is typical of the rugged beauty of Crete with amazing changes of the scenery between olive and locust trees and sea-beaten rocks of black and red volcanic lava-In the village of Livadia, buying food is still done in the traditional way – you may buy fish from the fishermen in the small harbour, vegetables, dairy products and meat from the farmers, but you will also find three small taverns.

The west coast of Crete,: all the way from Mpallos and Falasarna till Sfinari, Livadia, Elafonisi in Kissamos until the Krios peninsula in Paleohora, has managed to remain intact despite the passing of time and to have many parts of it included in European Union programmes for the protection of nature.The coastline continues for many kilometres sprinkled with amazing beaches and quiet fishing villages. A few meters higher up in the mountains, mountainous villages pass the time gazing into the infinity of the African sea. Time goes by very slowly up her. Just about in the middle of the west coast, in the village of Livadia, we built the first residence, which was followed by all the rest, with the last two being funded by European Union through Hellenic Ministry of Rural Development and Food programmes for the development of agrotourism. Our concept has been based on notions like luxury, simplicity, natural beauty, ecological conscience, environmental respect.

This concept inspired the construction of dreamy retreats, residences with unique architectural design destined for special people who have seen and tried just about everything and now seek privacy, comfortable and luxurious relaxation in an enchanting setting that guarantees absolute enjoyment.It is a combination of adventure and return to nature at the same time...You can swim in secluded beaches, walk alone and barefoot on the sand and pebbles of the beach, enjoy the rugged beauty of the Cretan landscape on hiking tracks, taste traditional dishes in small local taverns in beautiful villages scattered around this area, savour wine and tsikoudia in the company of locals, go fishing and, weather permitting of course, enjoy a small trip on a speed boat in a search of secluded beaches. You can enjoy captivating sunsets;You can put aside your everyday problems, feel rejuvenated, fill your batteries, get in touch with the people you love but most of all, get in touch again with yourself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Neptune

During the early summer of 2012, form July 7 to 14, we stayed in villa Neptune, in Livadia with our three teenage children. The villa itself was marvelous and well-cared for, situated on a rock (or small cape) rising out of the sea. We had a stunning view of the coastline, the village of Livadia and surrounding hills from the terrace and out of the pool. Everything in the villa was arranged to make us feel comfortable and at home, leaving us the option to cook (or barbeque) instead of eating out. The villa was taken care of by Gregory, who was highly reliable and helpful. Despite what some of us might think because of the economic situation in Greece, we had un-interrupted access to electricity, internet, water (hot and cold). We had lunch and dinner in various places in the neighborhood or returning from the beach at Elafonisi. Without exception, we felt welcome guests and everyone we met was helpful and seemed to appreciate our visit. We shopped for regular groceries in Kissamos (about 30 km’s away), where we also met locals who despite their economic worries showed us their Greek hospitality. We will certainly return in the near future and highly recommend this part of Crete and villa Neptune to anyone interested to spend a unique vacation in relative luxury.

Exceptionnel !

Nous sommes restés à la villa Neptune du 14 au 28 juillet 2012 avec nos 4 jeunes gens.

Merveilleuse situation au bout d'un piton rocheux surplombant la mer et une petite crique de galets juste en contre bas;

une situation du bout du monde et là l'improbable se matérialise:

une villa de rêve digne des plus beaux magazines...

La vue,la petite plage de galets,la mer,le ciel ...tout ce que vous voyez de la villa ...juste pour vos yeux seuls...

Que dire de cette piscine merveilleuse où les bleus de l'eau et de la mer se fondent..et des étoiles filantes du ciel le soir les pieds dans le jacuzzi...

Villa à l'architecture sobre et luxueuse à la fois vraiment très bien conçue-

Propreté impeccable à l intérieur- équipement ultra complet-

Accueil adorable de Grégory qui nettoie piscine et villa régulièrement-

De très bonnes tavernes aux alentours et une plage-lagon de sable rose à seulement 12 km de la villa à Elafonisi,des trekkings dans les gorges,des visites culturelles à Héraklion, Chania et même Knossos (3h route aller)

Pour le ravitaillement un petit conseil si famille nombreuse comme nous :

faites le plein à Chania en arrivant car la villa est assez loin des supermarchés..grand frigo et freezer dans la cuisine

Nous conseillons vraiment cette villa à tous ceux qui aiment se ressourcer

en pleine nature, au calme, loin de toute agitation touristique..un petit coin de paradis à coup sûr !!!

Villa Neptun-traumhaft !

  • 5 of 5

Unser 1-wöchiger Urlaub in der Villa Neptun,Livadia war einfach traumhaft! Die stylische Villa bietet allen Komfort und hat in jeder Hinsicht unsere Erwartungen übertroffen.Die Lage direkt an einen Felsen geschmiegt, mit uneinsehbarem Jakuzi

(mit gigantischem Meerblick) ist paradiesisch.

Der Pool mit der überwältigenden ,atemberaubenden Aussicht auf die Bucht und das weite Meer ist sicherlich das Highlight der Villa. Wir haben auf unseren vielen Urlaubsreisen noch keinen vergleichbar schön angelegten Pool erlebt.

Die Betreuung vor Ort durch Mr.Gregory war bestens. Er ist freundlich, jederzeit erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit.

Wir konnten jeden Abend die hervorragenden traditionell zubereiteten griechischen Speisen aus der nahegelegenen Taverne am Pool geniesen,da uns der Inhaber der Taverne,Hr. Yanis das Essen täglich persönlich mit dem Auto gebracht hat.

Wir haben einfach nur telefonisch bestellt und Yanis hat die frisch zubereiteten Speisen mit freundlichen Worten geliefert.

Allgemein können wir eine Urlaubsreise nach Kreta sehr empfehlen. Unsere ursprünglichen leichten Bedenken wegen der sogenannten Griechenland-Krise wurden gänzlich beseitigt. Wir haben davon während unseres gesamten Aufenthaltes nichts bemerkt. Die Menschen sind ausgesprochen freundlich,man fühlt sich in jeder Hinsicht sicher und gut aufgehoben. Ausserdem ist alles in den Mini-markets (kleine gut sortierte Geschäfte)zu erhalten,was das Herz begehrt.

Die Urlaubswoche ist viel zu schnell vergangen und der Abschied ist uns sehr schwer gefallen.

"Das war die schönste Urlaubswoche meines Lebens!" (Originalzitat meiner Frau Barbara)

Für meine Frau war es "die schönste Urlaubswoche ihres Lebens".

Wir haben zwei tolle Wochen in der Villa Neptune verbracht und die Ruhe und das traumhafte Panorama genossen. Der Outdoor-Jacuzzi war das Highlight sowie der 19 Meter lange Infinity Pool.

Die Betreuung durch den Besitzer sowie dem Verwalter Mr. Gregory war vorbildlich. Mr. Gregory war jederzeit greifbar und hat sich hervorragend um alles gekümmert. Die Ausstattung der gepflegten Villa läßt keine Wünsche offen (viele deutsche Fernsehprogramme sind ebenfalls gut empfangbar).

Wir haben auf Kreta ausschließlich freundliche, sympathische und aufgeschlossene Menschen getroffen.

Falls man keine Lust hat selbst zu kochen steht Janis von der nahegelegenen Taverne mit seinen Kochkünsten gerne zur Verfügung. Auf Wunsch liefert er das Essen auch frei Haus oder kocht sogar in der Villa.

Es war rundum ein erholsamer und fantastischer Urlaub in dem man seinen Alltagsstress hinter sich lassen konnte.

Die Villa ist sehr empfehlenswert und wir werden sicherlich wiederkommen.

Perfect villas in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villas in unique, spellbounding place away from it all - perfect sea view - one can not imagine better one, huge vast area in front of your eyes. The property is superbly maintained, clean with excellent design. Nice pools with perfect sea views. This region of Western Crete is also very charming, with not too many tourists, perfect tavernas with really local food, great hospitality. Perfect fish from local fisherman. Tha car is a must of course - nice trips to Elafonisi and Phalasarna (great sand and unique colour of the water). Also to recommend nice three fish restaurants in Sfinari with excellent beach (swimming shoes highly recommended). In summary Innahorion villas have great location which are perfectly maintained, very friendly with great Cretean atmosphere. Highly recommended !

The west coast of Crete, all the way from Balos and Falassarna till Sfinari, keramoti , Livadia and Elafonissi has remained intact despite the passing of time and the increasing number of visitors.The west coastline of Crete continues for many kilometres sprinkled with amazing secluded beaches and small fishing villages. Higher up in the mountains, mountainous villages offer amazing views to the deep-blue sea of Crete. The countryside is characterized by wild beauty, offering an incredible variety of landscapes and combining the rawness of the mountain ranges, the luscious green riverbeds with plane trees and oleander, together with the endless blue of the sea. Elafonissi is located on the west coast of Crete and it is one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete with white and pink sand and a lagoon with water shallow enough to walk to the opposite island. Thousands of tourists visit Elafonissi each year, as well as the nearby monastery of Chrissoskalitissa.

Other Activities: Swimming, walking, basketball, boating, fishing, water skiing
