The villa Crete Ostria – Elafonisi, is built on the edge of a cliff, offering a fantastic view of magnificent sunsets over the sea. Being in a village, it is at the same time isolated and has a pool designed to be hidden by high trees. The architecture combines innovation with typical island influences while particular emphasis has been placed on the surrounding area. The villa has been designed to provide the ideal accommodation for people who set high standards for their holidays and wish to combine privacy in an idyllic spot with adventure as well as comfort --The outside, marble-paved courtyard stands out like a window in the infinite blue of the sea and it is the perfect place to have a glass of wine while enjoying a dreamy sunset.

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

Wir waren mit 9 Personen für 14 Tage in der Villa Ostria. Die Villa wurde erst kürzlich renoviert und geschmackvoll neu möbliert. Dinge wie ein Weinkühler, Accesoires wie Kerzenhalter etc. machten das Haus persönlich. Das Wohlergehen des Gastes steht im Vordergund. Dinge, die uns anfangs fehlten (z.B. größere Rührschüsseln, ein Rührgerät, Dvd-player) wurden innerhalb von wenigen Stunden besorgt. Der Hauskeeper ist sehr, sehr nett und hilfsbereit und steht für alle Fragen oder anliegen zur Verfügung. Natasha Zouridi war uns stets behilflich bei Fragen oder ausflugs-Planungen. Nach dem Erdbeben informierte sie uns umgehend und beruhigte uns.

Der ausblick von der Terrasse ist einfach unbezahlbar, das Schwimmen im Pool oder Entspannen in den vielen netten Sesseln oder auf dem sehr bequemen Sofa im Wohnzimmer rundeten einen erholsamen Urlaub ab.

Das kretische,leckere Essen in der naheliegenden Taverne und die Gastfreundschaft von Yiannis sowie seiner Mutter haben unseren Urlaub perfektioniert.

Die Gastfreundschaft der Dorfbewohner und der Menschen, die wir in den umliegenden Dörfern trafen, ist einzigartig und rührt an.

Und so hieß es auch dieses Mal beim abschied: auf ein Wiedersehen

The L-shaped pool is 14m long, 7 m wide and has a depth ranging from 0,8 m to 2 m. The colonnades and the surrounding area resemble Roman baths while below the pergola there is a large table that can accommodate up to 8 people. Between the colonnades there is a barbecue grill. The pool area is swamped with vegetation which, combined with many different flowers, make up a wonderful idyllic setting and at the same time ensure absolute privacy to the villa residents who wish to swim or sunbathe in the nude.The outside, marble-paved courtyard stands out like a window in the infinite blue of the sea and it is the perfect place to have a glass of wine while enjoying a dreamy sunset. At its end we find a balcony out of iron and wooden in the shape of the deck of a boat of which approximately the half is on open air above an excavation - with included in it (the excavation) a circular jacuzzi on the ground - which offers the possibility for four people to benefit from the benefits of a spa -

Avslappnad solsemester i lyxigt fristående villa

  • 5 of 5

Både i jobbet och privat är jag bortskämd med bra logi när jag reser. För mig är det en väldigt viktig del för att kunna slappna av. Under min vistelse (sommaren 2014) på Villa Ostria fick jag en perfekt mix av allt jag behövde för en veckas semester i lugn miljö. Huset var smaktfullt designat, bra utrustat och hade en utsikt i världsklass.

Jag har redan och kommer fortsätta att rekommendera era fantastiska villor till vänner och bekanta. På återseende snart igen! Kristofer Högberg, Sweden

7 days in heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Months after our visit to Greece we often remember with great affection and nostalgia the happy days we spent in Crete. We were lucky to find our ideal place to stay -with incredible value for money, at a very quiet and peaceful location offering breathtaking views to the sea and a big pool in its absolutely private and lovely garden. I must not forget to mention the villa's smart design and lovely furniture. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and we felt at ease, as if we were in our own home. Despite being secluded, our luxurious summer home was not very far away from the village or the taverna where we enjoyed the most delicious Greek dishes and of course fresh fish. Almost on a daily basis we would drive to the nearby beaches, including the famous pink sandy beach of Elafonissi. For me, this was the closest thing to Paradise.

Mille grazie Natasa e Gregoris. Ci rivediamo prossimamente!

Stunning villa in an exceptional authentic village

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this wonderful setup. On arrival, everything was as arranged with Natasha, the owner. Gregory the caretaker met us and led us to the villa.The villa is absolutely amazing. Spotless clean, aesthetical and with a 180 degrees seaview. The oversized pool is situated in the gardens and provides a magnificent experience of mindfullness. Absolutely wonderful. A need to see and feel. It is, as the rest of the house and the surroundings, 100% private. The villa is situated in the village of Livadia. We strolled the few hundred meters to the local taverna each day. The food is pure organic and adds to the mindfullness and wellness of your holiday. Add to this a real honest hospitality, from Natsha, Gregory the caretaker to Gianis and his family at the Taverna, to the father and son at the mini market in the Village. So, a luxury villa, with seaviews and stunning gardens / pool, in a truly authentic village, friendly and absolutely safe. It is a fantastis combination. We spent the whole week in the local area, with one trip to the beach of Elafonisi, half an hour ride from the house. The beach is fantastic. You must go there. Google it and check the pictures.

My favourite place

  • 5 of 5

I love Villa Ostria.

The location with the sea in front and mountains at the back.

All the different birds soaring in the sky.

The natural sounds of the village life, no disturbing music from loudspeakers.

The long talk in the evenings with a nice little cat who kept his distance.

The comfortable bed and bedlinnen.

The secluded pool area.

The local restaurant that we call “The seventh happines”

Life is good in Livadia.

Utter perfection - don't hesitate to book.

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a blissful week at Villa Ostria. Two families with children aged 8-12 and it couldn't have been more perfect, to the point where it was difficult to wrench ourselves away to go and explore the wonderful Elaphonisi beach. The service offered by Natasha and Mr Gregory were exemplary.

The beautiful photos on the website really don't do it justice.

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
