Villa overview

It is perched high on a hillside and provides the most breathtaking views of the port city Heraklion and the Cretan Sea. This villa's serene and tranquil surroundings, the seclusion it offers, and its vast design make it the perfect vacation residence for families, friends, and couples alike. It is surrounded by vineyards, trees, and a large garden.

The expansive grounds of this opulent mansion are beautifully planted. There are lots of areas for kids to play and you to relax with your favourite vacation book thanks to a private entry leading up to the stone-walled property and grassy locations dotted with plants and shrubbery. Additionally, there are two swimming pools, one of which is shallower for children, a football and volleyball net, and numerous lounge chairs for some family fun or much-needed R&R under the warm Mediterranean sun.

Intimate dinners can be prepared on the BBQ and then enjoyed outside at the covered outdoor table and chairs as the property is lit up by little candles. Inside, the luxurious amenities continue with a contemporary kitchen that is completely furnished as well as a relaxing living area with a 52-inch flat-screen TV and plush sofas. You can enjoy the wonderful working fireplace and heated under flooring during the cooler months. Two of the four bathrooms also have jetted tubs for a tranquil spa-like atmosphere. The home has six chic bedrooms that may accommodate up to twelve people.

The villa's location is ideal for discovering all that Crete has to offer. Long strolls through the hills and vineyards are possible, or you may visit Houdetsi village, which has a variety of eateries, cafes, and shops. From Houdetsi, a hiking track leads to the nearby town of Agios Vasilios, through a small gorge and the historic monastery of Panagia Spiliotissa, which is partially carved out of a rock.

The villa is in Houdetsi, a beautiful village about 23km south of the city of Heraklion, Crete. It’s a peaceful spot that’s known for its wine with olive trees and vineyards and traditional Cretan music. Well worth a visit are the water fountain in the village centre and the folklore museum of music with traditional instruments from all over the world. There’s also a gorge leading to the Sacred Monastery of the Madonna nearby – magical natural scenery full of tall trees and plenty of running water.

For history lovers, if you drive 12km south-west of Houdetsi, you’ll reach the Monastery of Saint George, built around 1600. There’s also the impressive Monastery of Agarathos, 14km east which is considered one of the oldest monasteries in Crete or the castle of Nikiforos Fokas, 14km northwest.
In Heraklion itself, the capital of Crete, there’s plenty of things to see and do.

The Palace of Knossos, just outside the city, is a vast archaeological site dating back thousands of years to the Minoan civilization and includes frescoes and baths. Guarding the city’s Venetian port is the 16th-century Koules fortress, and there’s the Heraklion Archaeological Museum has an extensive collection of Minoan art. Heraklion isn’t all about out ancient sites though with top-notch restaurants serving Cretan cuisine, boutique shops and a lively nightlife. It’s also home to one of the richest markets in the Mediterranean where you can get traditional Greek products like olive oil, honey and herbs.

Heraklion’s bragging rights also continue with its serene beaches. The stretches of sand in this central part of Crete’s north coast range from the lively hangouts in Malia to the rugged bays of the deserted island, Dia. You can swim, snorkel, take part in water sports like sea kayaking and scuba diving or jump on a boat trip. Moreover, a modern golf course both for beginners and advanced players is not far away from the city of Heraklion, in the area of Hersonissos.
