Villa Andromeda is a unique semi-circular design reflecting the maritime heritage of Crete. Designed by a well-travelled family as a private residence, the villa sits high on its own private 4000 meter plot with 180 degree sea views. Luxury, Space, Seclusion, and Relaxation were foremost in our minds for the design. Equally however we wanted a thoughtful and safe environment for families where everyone can relax and find their own peace and privacy in total safety.
The villa is situated outside the village of Kokkino Horio made famous by "Zorba the Greek" and is a few minutes from the lovely village of Plaka and just down the road the beaches and restaurants of Almirida. The area is easily accessible from both Chania International Airport 20 minutes away or Heraklion.
The Western end of Crete is more lush and green than the Eastern end and the endless azure of the sea gives way quickly to mountains and unspoiled interiors full of olive groves and historic sites. Chania itself is worth a day, full of the history and atmosphere of an ancient Venetian stronghold.
Master Bedroom 1 has a private terrace, private bathroom, and its own luxurious stone bath.
Soak in total privacy as you admire the view.
Master Bedroom 2 has a private terrace and private bathroom.
Bedroom 3 is a comfortable double
Bedroom 4 features a lovely large bunk bed and children' writing desks.
Pull out bed for 2 more is available on request.
The Kitchen is arranged with a Breakfast bar so that the chef need not be excluded, and features high-end appliances and everything needed to prepare simple or fanciful meals.
A separate dining area extends into a full sitting room. The whole room can be opened to the terrace to give a feeling of infinite space and warmth.
The villa has a gorgeous roof terrace which is safe for the whole family yet affords stunning views of the bay.
Immediately outside the kitchen is a lovely shaded dining area, and outdoor barbecue facilities.
In front of the villa is a stunning infinity pool with a dedicated children's "splash pool" to one side, shallow and ideal for toddlers.
The villa, totally enclosed by high fencing and walls, features several levels of gardens and at the very end has its' own "sundowner" spot magically perched above the sea and outside the walls.
Villa Andromeda naturally features full Satellite TV, WifI Internet , Air Conditioning, Solar Power, Video Security, Alarm system, and just about every necessity for a smooth running vacation.
A house manager lives a few minutes away and is on call. Daily house cleaning can be arranged for a small fee. Many further services are available on request.
Make Villa Andromeda your home for a week or more and return refreshed and relaxed. It is our dream home and we hope it will temporarily be yours as well.
