DescriptionBack to top
This beautifully finished Villa offers spacious accommodation laid out over three levels. Achieving a fine balance between privacy and isolation, it shares its hillside position with a select few individual villas, which are sufficiently spaced not to overlook each other.
At garden level, the lower floor of the Villa is given over to an innovative inside/outside living area furnished with comfortable rattan seating which has ample space to accommodate a table tennis table for the more active. This shaded area is entirely open to the prettily laid out gardens featuring a terraced rock garden, lawns, a splendid covered barbecue area furnished with dining table and chairs and of course the lovely 9m x 5m pool.
Stairs from the open ‘garden room’ lead directly to the first floor of the house. At this level, a dining bar/table separates the living area from the smart and well equipped kitchen. Sliding picture windows on two sides of the sitting room produce a particularly light and airy space, where a huge fireplace, stone walls and traditional Cretan effects seamlessly blend in a fusion of traditional and modern, with a little raised study area at one end. A balcony, overlooking the garden and furnished for dining leads directly from the kitchen.
The second outside living area is at upper floor level, where the three bedrooms share access to a very generous covered terrace with elevated views down a wooded valley to the sea. Each of the two tastefully adorned double bedrooms has an attractive en suite shower room and the occupant of the single bedroom has the use of a shower room on the first floor.
The little villages of Maza and Filipos are almost within wandering distance and although they offer little in the way of facilities other than a small taverna and a cafenion, Vrisses, five minute drive away, has everything you could expect from a small town - bank, butcher, minimarkets, (rather wonderful) baker as well as a handful of tavernas. If you would prefer not to stray far from your lovely surroundings then Despina, the owner of Villa Avra lives locally and will happily prepare and deliver a Cretan Dish or two at a reasonable cost - and we do recommend setting the table on the upper balcony to really enjoy the occasion.
