Villa overview - owner's description
This beautifully restored 200-year-old and 300m2 villa sits on a very big plot in the heart of the delightful village of Kefalas, regarded as one of the most beautiful in The Apokoronas region of Western Crete.
The spacious villa is reached via a short lane with, access through double metal gates into a large private and walled front courtyard. This is, fully paved, with mature fruit trees, shrubs and local plants, stone walls and space for five cars to park away from the lane. On entering the villa, you are struck by how spacious and open it feels.
The lounge has, a stone featured open fire place, wooden floors and traditional high Cretan ceilings with full beams. The second section of the lounge houses a grand piano and two stone arches, leading to a large and fully equipped modern kitchen-diner. There are fully fitted appliances, a large L shaped open breakfast bar and preparation area, marble tiled work tops, and a dining table for up to 10 people overlooking the garden through a splendid fan shaped window. Double wooden doors lead from the dining area to the rear gardens.
On the ground floor, a hall leads from the lounge to two bedrooms (one with a double bed and the other a mezzanine split room with two single beds plus one on the mezzanine). There is also a large modern bathroom on this floor, with a large walk-in shower. An impressive open wooden stair case leads up to the first floor. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms. The master bedroom has high vaulted wooden ceilings, full length beams and storage. Wooden windows overlook both the extensive rear gardens and front courtyard. The other bedroom contains two single beds. Also on this floor is another modern bathroom, consistent in style with the downstairs bathroom but with a bath and overhead shower.
There is an upper terrace which can be accessed from the upstairs hallway, via double wooden doors. The terrace has outside seating and benefits from astonishing sea and mountain views.
The extensive “botanical” rear gardens have stone seating areas, and small courtyards to sit and enjoy the mature fruit trees, shrubs, plants and colorful flowers. The well-stocked garden includes an olive tree believed to be even older than the house. Towards the end there is a large kidney shaped swimming pool surrounded by paving, and sunbeds. The whole garden has lighting, seating, and exudes tranquility. It enjoys fantastic views towards the Souda Bay, and is surrounded by a stone wall to ensure maximum privacy.
The property is close to the nearby kafenions , two Ttavernas and two supermarkets. The villa is also a short drive from the local beaches at Almyrida, Kalyves and Georgioupolis. The nearby National Road provides easy access to the international airports and ferry port to mainland Greece and many other islands.
