Villa Maria, Plaka, Chania. Very private with pool, sea and mountain views.

Located in: Chania »
Villa Maria is a beautiful modern villa that enjoys a very private and peaceful setting with incomparable sea views and sunsets, and yet is only a few minutes away from beaches, tavernas, and shops. The villa has been recently built by its charming owners, Yiannis and Maria, with whom we have been working since 1999 at their other rental property. They have utilised their vast knowledge of working with visitors to Crete to ensure that Villa Maria exceeds your expectation of a holiday villa. Located on a hillside just above the village of Plaka, the villa has absolutely stunning panoramic views of Souda Bay, The Akrotiri Peninsula, the Turkish Castle at Aptera, small villages and The White Mountains which are snow capped for 6 months a year. Despite the rural location surrounded by a natural rocky landscape covered in almond and olive trees, Villa Maria is only 3 minutes by car to the charming village square of Plaka, or 5 minutes to the beaches and many amenities in Almyrida.

Set in large grounds that are completely surrounded by a low natural stone wall and fencing, Villa Maria guarantees total privacy. The fully tiled pool and pool terrace have an elevated position above the olive groves below ensuring a glorious uninterrupted view of Souda Bay. The design of the villa has been carefully thought out in order to bring your living area into the outdoors, so that you can fully appreciate the outstanding views at all times. Therefore there are many terraces for both sun and shade, and an ample supply of garden furniture such as tables, chairs, umbrellas and sun-beds, as well as a traditional brick barbeque. The spacious upstairs sun terrace has 360 degree views of the entire area and is perhaps the best place from which to relax with a drink on a warm summer night whilst watching a colourful sunset. The villa has a large front garden area that is gravelled and has plenty of room for private, gated parking. The front garden features 6 raised flower beds that are surrounded by stone walls and have been planted with ficus trees, bottle brush plants, Washingtonian palms, a number of mature olive trees, and a mass of colourful white and pink flowers. The front driveway and parking area also have ground level flower beds that feature carob trees, palms, geraniums and mesembryanthum flowering ground cover.

Villa Maria has been painted a pretty pale buttermilk colour and has been furnished throughout to a very high standard. The décor has fun features such as the fireplace or an occasional wall painted in a bright or contrasting colour, and this combines perfectly with the stylish furniture which includes comfortable cream leather couches, a wood and iron dining table that is topped with green glass and has matching chairs with cream leather seats, and a king size dark wood bed and matching bedside cabinets in the double bedroom. All modern comforts have been provided including satellite TV, DVD and CD players, dishwasher and washing machine, white aluminium doors, windows, and shutters with mosquito screens on all the windows, and air conditioning units in all the bedrooms and the living room. There is a fireplace and the a/c units also double up as heaters for the cooler nights at the start and end of the season. The water is heated by either solar panel or a back-up immersion heater. WIFI internet access is available but top-up cards for air-time will need to be purchased locally.

There are 2 windows that look out over the front garden to the mountains, and there are double sliding doors which lead out onto the covered dining terrace and open pool terrace. The modern kitchen/dining area has built-in cherry wood cabinets and is fully equipped with a cooker with a ceramic hob, a dishwasher, a large fridge/freezer, a microwave oven, a kettle, a toaster, a coffee maker, a dining table and 6 chairs.
