The villa is modern in design and with first class amenities. Looking down to the village of Aghia Pelaghia with its sweeping sandy beach and typical tavernas the villa is also within a short walk of the secluded bay of Lygaria. You can enjoy romantic balmy summer evenings in the garden cooking on the barbecue as the sun sets and the lights appear in the tavernas. Ideally situated for quick access to the main road which is easily reached from the villa, this road takes you to Heraklion town and its airport (20 minutes away) in one direction, and to the west of the island in the other, passing through the towns of Rethymnon and Hania as it waves its way to Kastelli.
