The combined use of high-quality natural local materials (wood, stone, iron, marble), both in the construction and furnishing of the house, make this villa one of a kind!

The property is reached from its south-eastern side, where you may enter onto its the middle level of the house. Here, two twin bedrooms, one bathroom and the impressive pool of the villa are found. Starting from the interior of the middle-level, lighted by the atrium, the impressive pool passes through the house and ends outdoors.

The two bedrooms of this level enjoy direct access to the pool, which is also granted through an outdoors stone path, leading from the main entrance straight to the pool. One of the bedrooms on the middle level, as well as the bathroom facilitating it, has been designed with accessibility in mind so that they can comfortably accommodate the elderly or physically challenged people.

Descending the stairs to the lower level, the guests may find the third and fourth bedrooms, both with double beds and en-suite bathrooms.

Overall, the regular bedrooms can comfortably accommodate 8 guests. All beds are equipped with COCO-MAT natural, allergen-free mattresses and all bedrooms have access to patios with amazing views.

An iron-wooden staircase leads to the upper level. Again, the elderly or physically challenged people are not excluded to the upper level, as a rolling ramp is installed at one side of the staircase so that anyone can move around the whole villa with safety.

Here on the top level, you will find a well-appointed modern kitchen made of high-quality Swedish wood. The kitchen is fully equipped with state-of-the-art appliances offering anything you might need! You will even find a wine preserver! Next to the kitchen, the dining area renders the space for your indoors meals while enjoying the framed views from the openings that let the sunlight amply enter the inside.

On the same level, there is the sitting area. It is a cosy space, minimally decorated with traditional details. The comfortable sofa-bed with its deluxe mattress can host 2 more guests. In the same room, a large desk is designed to turn into a closet if needed, to facilitate the extra guests in case this room serves as a bedroom.

All indoor spaces have large windows to let the sunlight in as if outdoors. The house is sunny all day long as there are openings in every direction, capturing the sunlight through its path to the sunset.

Breathtaking views of unique beauty are offered from both the indoor and outdoor areas. Especially the wooden deck over the pool provides a panoramic view to a spectacular scene, distinctive of the Cretan nature.

The architect of Kaminia Villa, Aristomenis Varoudakis, who studied in the US and Denmark, lives and works in Chania, Crete. Creating his very personal and distinctive way of designing, he has always intended to preserve the traditional values by mixing natural elements with modern construction. He has taken part in over 16 architectural competitions, winning four first awards and many qualifications. He has participated in 13 collective exhibitions of exceptional architectural works, a solo exhibition at the Benaki Museum (2009-2010), and has himself organized two exhibitions delegated by the Mediterranean Architecture Centre.

Area

Kaminia villa is located in the village of Agii Pantes, in the region of Apokoronas, the so-called "Tuscany of Greece". The scenery lies between one of the most spectacular parts of the northern Cretan coast, the Bay of Souda, to the north and the mesmerising mountainous landscape of Lefka Ori (White Mountains) to the south. At the foothills of White Mountains, the region is gifted with lush hills and fertile tracts of land, due to the abundance of water coming from the springs on the mountains, forming small rivers and streams that run through the area, before finding their way out to the sea, as well as the only natural lake in Crete, the one of Kournas.

Its gifted location offers majestic panoramic views to the surrounding area, combined with the desired privacy and seclusion for a relaxing rejuvenating experience away from the everyday haste.

Apart from the natural charm of the landscape, visitors may enjoy all the amenities and conveniences within a grasp. Apart from the ones lying across, many worthy local restaurants and traditional taverns, markets, shops and certainly some fabulous beaches can be found at the village of Kalyves, just 10 minutes driving away. Some of the most attractive and authentic villages of the Cretan countryside, such as Almirida, Vamos, Gavalochori, Aptera, Plaka etc., are not only offering great sights for the visitors to enjoy but also anything one would need for a convenient stay in the area. At a distance of 10km, the stunning Kalyvaki beach may be reached, with a picturesque tavern at the edge of the sea for the visitors to enjoy local delicacies. Some metres further, the endless, sandy beach of Georgioupolis extends. The renowned village of Georgioupolis is fully organised to provide guests with all amenities. At a longer distance but still, just 26km away, the city of Chania is reached, offering guests with a great variety of quality entertainment, gastronomical, cultural, sports and activity choices, facilities and amenities of all kinds.

Overall, the villa's location will offer you the precious chance to get in touch with the genuine Cretan way of living, tradition, and local customs, long lost in the major touristic destinations of Crete. At the same time, there is nothing that you will miss, be it amenities or choices of all kinds. And all that, within the most stunning natural scenery.

Dream villa in a wonderful location  

Excellent, modern design but typical Greek architecture. Very nice location - view at the mountains as well as the sea; very quiet place. Wonderful and very friendly hosts.

Exquisite Villa Overlooking Mountains and Sea  

High on a hillside -in a beautiful area of Crete- we enjoyed a fantastic family vacation in this new, architecturally stunning home. Lefteris, Efi and Kostas are the warmest, most delightful and generous hosts! The views of the White Mountains on one side, the sea in the distance on the other are incomparable. Everyday was more beautiful than the next. Modern, comfortable, spacious, tranquil, airy wonderful. The pool was refreshing in the heat of the day. There are many areas for relaxing, dining, sunning. Private porches compliment each bedroom. In 15 minutes you can be on a beach. There is a fine Taverna in the local village. The location was excellent for car trips exploring east, west, north and south. We can't wait to return! Thank you Lefteris and Efi, for sharing this beautiful home with us.

Meet your host, Lefteris
