The Premier Crete Experience
Posted on Friday 30th September 2022 by
There are many ways to enjoy your escape to Crete, but none quite have the same luxurious atmosphere as our Premier Villas. To have earned a spot in this prestigious category, every villa will be privately situated and have excellent amenities, including private pools. Many also have the added benefits of being within walking distance to nearby taverns and shops.
This blog will take you through some of our most luxurious Crete villas and give you an insight into what makes them stand out.
Villa Annie – Tsivaras, Kalives
The first property we will be diving into will be Villa Annie, a newly built 3 bed/3 bath property.
One major attraction of this villa is the fantastic 360-degree view which captures the sea, mountains and charming rural villages from its many terraces.
As a newly built property, its high-end interior reflects its premier status. It is fully air-conditioned, has a very spacious open-plan lounge and dining area, a fully integrated and well-equipped kitchen, 3 luxury double bedrooms and more.
Villa Levendakia – Drapanos, Nr Almyrida
The second location we will be showing you is Villa Levendakia, a truly unique villa situated close to the hilltop village of Drapanos.
This elevated position grants it incredible 360-degree views across Souda Bay and the White Mountains. The memorable sunset/sunrises alone are enough to grant it a place amongst our Premier Creten Villas.
This villa boasts high ceilings throughout which gives an extremely open, spacious feel and grants plenty of light. The lounge is well furnished with comfortable seating arranged sociably around a coffee table, all positioned to enjoy the views through the expanse of patio doors.
Villa Kournedes – Gavalochori, Nr Almyrida
If you are looking for a perfect Greek holiday, then look no further than Villa Kournedes. Situated away from the crowds, yet it allows for easy access to all of the amenities that make Crete so special.
As expected, this villa has amazing views, but its true beauty lies in the property itself. Situated on a very private plot, its garden is designed with lush cypress and pine trees, and is double gated for privacy – so you will be able to enjoy the lush grounds in solitude.
It is comfortably furnished, and with no neighbors to worry about you can be even more relaxed in both the villa, garden and private pool.
Villa Amaltheia – Xirosterni, Nr Almyrida and Georgioupolis areas
Having been extensively re-furbished, Villa Amaltheia is now a lovely modern villa that stands on an impressive plot of well over an acre. With both amazing views and a private atmosphere, it is right at home in our Premier Villas category.
The living areas and kitchen are located to one side of the villa which is a single story, and the bedrooms are in the other, split-level side of the villa.
For bookings later in the year, the pool can be heated on request (for an additional charge) and the villa is centrally heated, so is a good choice for early or late season holidays when the evenings may turn chilly.
Villa Magdalena – Gavalochori, Nr Almyrida
This fabulous property is situated on a large plot of land on the outskirts of the beautiful villages of Agios Pavlos and Gavalochori. Just a short drive to the beautiful Almyrida beach resort and within easy walking distance of the renowned tavernas and food shops in Gavalochori, Villa Magdalena is in the ideal location for your Crete escape.
This impressive looking villa comes equipped with a lovely pool (salt water with optional heating during Apr, May and Oct) and has more room than your average 3-bedroom villa, meaning every room is spacious and attractively furnished to a high standard.
All 3 bedrooms are located on the first floor along with two modern bathrooms, one of which is a luxurious ensuite with a ‘walk-in’ shower. Each standard bedroom also has double doors leading to a sunny conjoined balcony, whilst the master bedroom comes equipped with its own private balcony.
Villa Stella Donna – Douliana, Nr Almyrida
This light-stone villa is a newly built and luxurious property, standing in a pretty village. Its glorious views of the sea, mountains and countryside only add to the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere that Villa Stella Donna will offer.
The popular beach resorts of Kalives and Almyrida are only a few minutes’ drive away making this villa an ideal choice for those who want a beautiful place to stay within striking distance of amenities. The local taverna will deliver if you prefer to eat in the privacy of your villa.
From the moment you step into the front door, you will notice the spacious, open plan living area along with its high vaulted ceilings, granting it a large open atmosphere. At the back of the villa, French doors open to two separate dining terraces, both with sea views. The smaller one catches the early morning sun making it a super spot for breakfast.
