Villa Adagio 5 Bedroom with Organic Heated Pool

Located in: Vrachasi »

The idea of Villa Adagio was first conceived during a morning conversation between me and my father. Although I am a doctor and he is a physicist we both love traditional Cretan architecture as we both love our birthplace Merambello in the prefecture of Lasithi. The first drawings of the house, that were sketched on a piece of paper while enjoying thyme honey and Cretan graviera at breakfast, later took on shape in the hands of the architect Katerina Thanou. The principal idea was to create a modern house that would follow the rules of traditional architecture (there are no balconies protruding but the flat-roof of the ground floor would function as a terrace for the upper floor). Special attention was paid in incorporating these architectural features to the particular geomorphology of the area and on finding smart layout arrangements that would take advantage of the extraordinary microclimate. Our target was to render every corner of the Villa attractive, on the exterior as well as on the interior, not only during the whole day but also during the whole year, because believe me, each season has its own magic.


Located on a plot of 1000m2, the Villa has an area of 310m2 spread over 3 levels. On the ground floor there is an independent open-plan space, featuring a kitchen and a living-room as well as a second independent hall area, the main bath-room and 2 bedrooms. On the 1st floor are the master-bedroom and another en-suite bedroom, each of them with its private spacious terrace. In the basement there is a fully equipped recreation area with home-cinema and table tennis. The Villa has a completely self-contained pool house which can also accommodate guests or personnel.

The 65m2 biological swimming pool is heated, without chemicals, it operates on the basis of salt water electrolysis and has a capability of re-circulating the water every 1,5 hours.


The Villa is located at the entrance of the village Vrachasi. It is built on the foothill of Mount Kalaritis. On the mountain top there is an archaic sanctuary as well as a Minoan settlement, which is now being excavated. If you like trekking you can easily visit the excavation. It is approximately a 30 min. climb. The Villa offers a view to the Lasithiotika Mountains with the famous Dictaion Cave (or Dictaion Antron) where Rhea gave secretly birth to Zeus. She entrusted the upbringing of the child to the goat Amalthea in order to save him from his father Cronus, who devoured his children. This is a site absolutely worth visiting. When looking to the sea the island of Dia will catch the eye. According to the myth the island is a petrified monster, who was also after little Zeus.

The distance of the Villa to the international airport of Heraklion “Nikos Kazantzakis” is 35 minutes and to the port 40 minutes.
In a distance of 1 minute there is a mini market
In the traditional settlement you will find taverns with marvellous Cretan cooking and in the nearby seaside villages of Milatos and Sissi there are amazing fish-taverns
In a distance of 10-15 minutes car drive away there are sandy of rocky beaches for swimming
Easy access to the inland of the prefecture of Lasithi, where you can visit the unknown, not so crowded Crete, with its unique wild beauty and the charming Palaeolithic settlements
Finally only 20km away lies the village of Elounda, a well-known luxurious resort with the famous island of Spinalonga and its wonderful Venetian castle.
