It is a luxury holiday rental villa located outside the seaside village of Kolymvari, just 20 minutes from the picture-perfect, historic town of Chania in western Crete. The property sits on 3000 sqms of olive groves, fruit trees, organic vegetable gardens and lush green lawns atop a hill that affords sweeping views of the crystal clear waters of the Sea of Crete on one side and the majestic White Mountains on the other.

The villa was built to comply with the standards of bioclimatic architecture in its functioning, while its design, layout and decor were meticulously thought through so that the home would harmoniously blend in with its natural surroundings. The property offers everything that visitors could possibly anticipate in view of the care and attention to detail given to its construction: absolute comfort and privacy, soothing elegant interiors, stunning outdoor facilities and top-of-the-line amenities and furnishings, all complemented by a number of superior quality services from which to choose.

The villa's interior boasts four bedrooms accommodating up to 8 guests, an impressive entrance area, bright and airy living room, spacious dining room and high-design, high-function kitchen. The stylish aesthetics and clever layout are complemented by a wine cellar fully stocked with local Cretan and other Greek wines, a gym, two spectacular infinity pools, a children's playground and an organic vegetable garden that guests are encouraged to use and enjoy, making the villa a truly unique holiday villa.

Upon walking through the arched doorway that leads to the spacious entry hall, the first thing visitors notice is the aura of serenity permeating the entire home: the soft, earth tones that grace the walls, extra high ceilings and furnishings, the large French windows that allow the outdoor hues to playfully dance off the walls, the local Cretan stone and wide-planked hard wood floors, the fine art and decorative objects tastefully placed throughout.

The ground floor of the three-level villa boasts a spacious living room complete with energy-efficient fireplace and large, comfortable sofas that gaze out onto the well-tended gardens and sea beyond. Directly off the living room are 2 outdoor patios fully outfitted with plush, built-in sofas and teak and rattan patio furniture. Next to the living room sits the dining room and its stylishly oversized wooden table with comfortable seating for 8. From the dining room and through a gorgeous, hand-crafted stone arch is the ground floor's masterpiece: its spectacular, extremely functional Marchi designer kitchen, a room lovingly created to inspire and motivate guests to use their gastronimical creativity for unforgettable Cretan holiday feasts. The main floor is also where two of the villa's four bedrooms are located, each with its own en suite bathroom. All of the villa's bedrooms boast the COCO-MAT signature series of "4-layer" beds and individually adjustable pillows as well as the finest quality cotton/satin blend bed linens. Bathrooms are well-appointed, stocked with fluffy bath towels, robes and exclusive all-natural bath products, among other amenities.

On the first floor, the villa's master bedroom with its en suite bathroom and on the lower ground floor 1 more bedroom with its en suite bathroom and a private full furnifhed veranda surrounded by amazing colourful gardens, the well equiped gym, the laundry area and the amazing wine cellar with a variety of selected greek wines at guests' disposal.

The villa's theme of stylish, natural elegance continues outdoors, with its covered patios, ideal for peaceful relaxation and unwinding, that lead from the house to the gardens and beyond. A 60 m² infinity pool for adults and 12 m² children's pool (0.50 cm deep) beckon guests to take a dip, wash off in the outdoor shower and then relax in the covered, poolside lounge area. Further on is the property's "outdoor kitchen", complete with wood-burning oven and a shaded BBQ area, and perfect for casual afternoon or evening gatherings. As a result of the villa owners' passion for landscaping, the villa is literally immersed in nature: organic vegetable patches, fruit trees, Mediterranean aromatic plants, olive groves and a lush emerald lawn envelop the property and make sitting outdoors a treat for the senses.

Area

The villa sits among olive and Mediterranean fruit trees on a hill overlooking the sea in western Crete. Close to the charming coastal village of Kolymvari, the villa boasts panoramic views of the dramatically beautiful White Mountains and the turquoise-blue Sea of Crete, and is also just 20 minutes by car from the picturesque capital of the region, Chania. Kolymvari is a traditional Cretan village of approximately 1,000 inhabitants, which fortunately has not been caught up in the mass tourism development that much of the rest of the area has been enveloped by. It has managed to retain its traditional character and visitors can still interact with locals and shop in stores selling food, clothing and other products from the region, enjoy outdoor fish markets or simply stroll along the village's coastal road and have a bite to eat at one of the good-quality, family-run restaurants that line the waterfront. The village harbour is a photographer's paradise, with small colourful fishing boats bobbing up and down in the calm waters as sea gulls dip down and try to snatch a small fish from the fishermen plying their wares. Kolymvari also boasts a long sand and pebble beach, which is organized and offers sun beds, beach umbrellas and a multitude of water sports for activity enthusiasts. For those preferring a more isolated beach experience, there are plenty of spots that are quiet and not at all crowded. The village also has all conveniences that visitors may need, including a well-stocked supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakery, bank, ATMs, petrol station, taxi stand and a doctor's office. For those wishing to do more extensive shopping or looking for more vibrant nightlife, there is the nearby tourist town of Platanias (less than 10 minutes away by car) as well as Chania (20 minutes away, frequent bus service to and from Kolymvari).

The villa is located at a perfect spot for exploration of western Crete's quaint inland villages as well as for visiting some of the island's most famous beaches, including stunning Balos Lagoon, exotic pink-sand Elafonissi and crystal-clear Falassarna. In addition, scenic trails and winding roads abound in the area and await visitors to explore either on foot or by mountain bike.

Distances from the villa to various points in Crete:

• 1.5 km to Kolymvari village centre and nearest conveniences (bakery, supermarket, bank, ATMs, petrol station, pharmacy, post office, doctor)
