The villa is located in a picturesque area of four acres, close to the shore at the location of Stavros in Akrotiri, Chania. It is in this area that the movie 'Zorba the Greek' from the book of the same name by Nikos Kazantzakis, directed by Michael Kakoyannis and music by Mikis Theodorakis - was filmed.
It is a site that represents the charm of Crete and Cretans as it combines images from rugged and tall mountains, steep shores and sandy beaches, a cultural legacy inherited from the Minoan civilization -the first island culture of Europe- and an excellent hospitality 'filoxenia', memorable to the visitor.
The facilities include a salt-water ecological pool of 100 square meters with a separate shallow section for children and are ideal for accommodating families with children and/or groups of individuals. The house is equipped with electrical appliances (stove, oven, refrigerator, washing machine, TV) and air conditioning in every room. The kitchen cabinets provide all the necessary facilities (plates, glasses, cutlery, pots, etc.).
Due to the short distance from the coast, the blowing fresh sea breeze makes the visitors' stay pleasant even in the hottest days of the summer. Within walking distance or a few minutes' car drive, visitors can reach the clean sandy beaches of Stavros - in case one wants to swim in the sea - as well as fine tavernas offering the famous Cretan cuisine and hospitality.
The one-bedroom apartment, Dioni, can accommodate 2-4 guests since the sofa in the dining room can turn into a comfortable bed. It has a raised terrace overlooking the sea and of course access to the garden and pool.
Dias, a three bedroom apartment, can accommodate 6-8 guests since the sofa in the dining room can turn into a comfortable bed. In front of the ground floor veranda, there is a wooden deck that can be used by visitors for sunbathing, but also to enjoy the sunset, listening to the calming sounds of the sea waves. Apart from the terrace, in front of the two bedrooms on the second floor overlooking the sea, there is a roof garden adjacent to the second floor bedrooms, with uninterrupted view of the nearby mountains and the sea.
