This unique, original three bedroom villa, designed in collaboration with a Greek architect, has a very authentic style and is built into the mountainside. The villa lies at 170 meters above sea level and offers mesmerising views over the Elounda bay, surrounding villages and the Cretan mountains.
Completed in 2008, the house is modern but reflects the local history with a tower that represents the stone windmills famous to the area. The stonework around the house and the colours that have been used naturally blend in with its surroundings.
The house is 230m2 on a plot of 3307m2 and is built in multiple levels.
The ground floor has a spacious open plan living/dining area with an open fireplace and a large kitchen. The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped including a central cooking island containing an electric oven, 5-ring gas hob, extractor fan and dishwasher. There is an American fridge/freezer.
The windows that cover the full length of the living room open out to a shaded terrace from which you can enjoy the fantastic views.
Opposite the front door there is a spiral staircase that leads up to the tower of the house. Open the authentic wooden tower door and you will find yourself on the highest point of the property. This spacious terrace offers a breathtaking panoramic view.
The light and spacious master bedroom is to be found on the same floor as the open plan living/dining area. The master bedroom has a wooden floor, fitted wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom with two showers and two round marble sinks. The bathroom has a full floor to ceiling window. The master bedroom has got a very spacious balcony.
The lower floor comprises of two large bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and a shared bathroom with a shower and toilet. Each room has access to their own terrace and the garden. Both downstairs bedrooms consist of two single beds. At your convenience we can always add another single bed to the downstairs bedrooms. We also have baby cots, to put in one of the three bedrooms, if necessary.
Totally independent and at the other side of the pool area lies a guest house of 20m2 which sleeps up to two people and consists of a living/bedroom with downstairs a sofa, kitchenette and bathroom (shower/toilet) and upstairs a mezzanine sleeping area. The guest house has a large private terrace with an olive tree that is over a hundred years old and stunning views of the Elounda bay. There is a roofed outdoor shower in the corner of the terrace. For groups larger than 6 adults, the guesthouse can be rented out on request. (see extra charge for the guesthouse at the top of this description)
The pool area consists of a large (40m2) swimming pool with a wonderful fish design mosaic base, a childrens paddling pool, with built in wooden chairs next to it, and an outdoor shower. The pool area has a smooth wooden deck with two beautiful olive trees that provide some necessary shade.
The garden is fully landscaped and multi terraced. There is a built in barbecue area with a large stone bench and table perfect for al fresco dining. Just down from the pool area there is a sloping grass lawn with a tree hut that was built by the owner and his son. Here, hours of playtime fun awaits your little ones.
From spring 2020, if you are a group larger than 6 adults, there is the possibility to rent the luxurious extension of the villa in addition to the villa. The extension is located next to the downstairs bedrooms and consists of a 50m2 bedroom/lounge area that sleeps up to four people and has a large bathroom with two separate showers and toilets.
