Villa overview - owner's description
Beautiful three bedroom villa with private pool. Located in a secluded pretty area offering real relaxation. Only 8km from Georgioupolis Beach.
The spatial arrangement of the villa is sure to ensure your privacy allowing for solitary holidays.
Away from indiscrete eyes in a setting of absolute quiet and relaxation, just a few metres from the beach but also from cosmopolitan centres.
The owner's vision behind the construction and running of this villa is translated into total respect of the natural environment and traditional Cretan architecture combined with all the necessary requirements that ensure a pleasant stay with all modern amenities.
The main building of the villa is simple and influenced by Aegean island architecture. It emphasizes on spaciousness and manages to combine elegant decorative elements with the restrictions of traditional minimalism.
The materials used in the construction were selected carefully emphasizing on environmental protection; local stones were used in walls and floors, unprocessed wood, ochre and ecological paints for plastering and floors as well as traditional construction techniques for the exterior and interior plastering, the rooms and floors.
The exact site of the building was selected after careful study in order to achieve optimal results in heating and cooling. Solar energy is also used wherever it is possible.
There are 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, an open space for kitchen, dining room, fireplace and sitting room, and an auxiliary room, all covering the 200 square metres and two levels of the villa.
Kitchen: open type, fully equipped with all electrical appliances; dining area, living room with comfortable sofas, fireplace and a WC; one bedroom with en-suite bathroom; verandah with panoramic view and an outdoor dining area.
A stone staircase leads to the first floor (80 square metres) that has two bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom, an auxiliary room (laundry, ironing and linen press); the main corridor leads to the patio (50 square metres) that has an outdoor sitting area. The villa can house comfortably up to 6 people (for more people, prior arrangement is necessary).
All of this is offered in a green clad environment, swamped with flowers, aromatic herbs and trees, an ideal place of calm and relaxation for grown-ups and endless games and playing for children.
We are extremely glad to be able to offer you the opportunity to experience moments of pure relaxation, calm and enjoyment in nature, to provide to you every means and any piece of information that might make your stay more comfortable and pleasant and to introduce to you the genuine hospitality and warmth of the people on Crete.
The operation of the villa is supported by the family of the owner who work on the fields (near the village and approximately 500 m away from the villa). If you wish, you can take part in seasonal agricultural activities such as the picking of olives or grapes, the making of house wine, gardening, animal care etc.
Next to the villa is the vegetable garden, from which you may wish to try some of the season's organic vegetables.
We would be remiss not to make sure you have the chance to taste some traditional home-made recipes with pure local products from the genuine Cretan diet.
Choose from the villa menu your choice of food. Any food you choose will be cooked exclusively for you and will be served to you at the house on the time you pick.
The spatial arrangement of the villa is sure to ensure your privacy allowing for solitary holidays. Away from indiscrete eyes in a setting of absolute quiet and relaxation, in short distance from the beach and the cosmopolitan centres.
Forget everything reading a book from the villa's library, watch your favourite show on satellite TV or watch a DVD film choosing from the selection of the villa which is at your disposal, or gather around the stone barbecue in the garden and organize a feast.
Relax by leaving your children play safely around the house in the large garden and the pool.
We will take care of all the cleaning. The room service will change sheets and towels upon your arrival and once during the week following prior notification.
All rooms are air-conditioned.
Less than 500 metres away from the Villa, your walk will take you to the Byzantine church of Saint George dating back to the 16th century, or the gorge that begins at the village exit. Every walk inside the infinite olive groves and the nearby hills with local flora and the unique Cretan aromatic herbs will waken all your senses. If you feel up to a little more walking, you will reach Melidoni, a mountain village, where after approximately 2 km, you will be able to begin the exploration of the rugged slopes of the Lefka Ori (White Mountains); if you do not wish to walk all the way there, you may go as far as the mountain by car.
Nearby villages, such as Stylos (6 km away) and Armeni (5 km away) might also interest you because of their natural beauty. There you may choose to rest under the great plane trees by the river and have lunch. The lake of Kournas (9 km away) has rich flora and fauna, it is registered in the Natura 2000 project as a protected habitat. Approximately 9 km farther away is Vamos, the administrative capital of the county, is a registered traditional community with refurbished traditional buildings that house taverns, coffee shops and small guest houses.
The beaches of Kalyves, Almyrida and Georgioupolis (9 km away) extend a refreshing invitation for swimming.
If you are looking for night entertainment, Kalyves and Georgioupolis will offer you a plethora of options that can please even the most demanding taste; for a more cosmopolitan flair, you should try the cities of Hania or Rethymno at a distance of approximately 26 km
Pemonia is a village in the broader area of Apokoronas in Hania, a well-known and famous area for its natural beauty and the diversity of the genuine Cretan countryside, offering its visitor ample possibilities for any form of ecotourism or alternative tourism in the rugged, unspoiled Cretan countryside, in the mountains or on the beaches.
This small but picturesque mountainous village remains unspoiled through the ages, far away from any form of tourist exploitation.
The village is 26 km away from the city of Hania, in the middle of the road between Hania and Rethymno, and a mere 1,5 km from the basic road axis of Crete of Hania-Heraklion at the foot of Lefka Ori.
The warmth of the mountainous scenery and the mild Cretan winters make Pemonia an ideal destination for winter getaways; at the same time, its proximity to the picturesque beaches of Kalyves and Almyrida (only 9 km away) and the endless beaches of Georgioupolis (8 km away) provides an alternative solution for wonderful summer vacations.
Where the sea flirts with rugged Cretan mountains At the exit of the village, a private road leads to the panoramic location of the Villa.
Hidden away from any indiscrete eyes, the only sound that might disturb the visitor here is the song of the birds.
Inside a garden of 1.200 square metre surface, is the main building of the villa with a surface of 200 square metres as well as a pool with a surface of 50 square metres and panoramic view. A green valley of olive trees, the Lefka Ori massif and the blue horizon of the Aegean Sea make up a dreamy background, one you think you can almost touch just by reaching out with your hands.
In the village you can find only basic supplies but if you go as far as Kalyves (9 km) and Vrysses (4km) you will find big supermarkets where you can buy anything you like.
In the nearby villages at less than 2 km away, there are many traditional taverns serving genuine traditional Cretan dishes made with excellent local products. Local people, who can appreciate what Cretan cuisine has to offer, often choose the taverns in Agioi Pantes (just 1.5 km away), Tzitzifes (1.5 km away) and Melidoni (2 km away) for their excellent food. Of course, a little farther away you will find many more seaside taverns and restaurants in Kalyves, Georgioupolis, Almyrida and Armeni.
