This pristine white villa that rests 150 meters above sea level offering breathtaking sights of Mirabello Gulf, is designed to give feelings of pure balance and aesthetic pleasure away from prying eyes on an arid mountain-scape, with its own private pool and Jacuzzi, in the exclusive area of East Crete.
Villa Achilleas is a luxurious single-floor holiday villa ideal for the lovers of Greece that appreciate the island aesthetics that is a simple, but daring style, a concept that defines the house’s mood inside and out. Constructed with organic shapes and amazingly lush exterior spaces facing towards the sensational landscape of sea and islands, this vacation villa is the perfect spot to embrace Crete’s sea, sun and culture. Villa Achilleas is looking like a pearl that emerges from the deep blue sea, taking cues from the exterior, where the centrepiece is the swimming pool, but the landscape is the true protagonist of the setting. A beautiful beach to swim can be found only 200 meters away, then come to your Jacuzzi to admire magnificent vistas of the Aegean as the sun sets slowly in the west. From this spot, you can enjoy an evening alfresco dinner or your drink with your loved ones with the scent of the sea breeze. As you enter Achilleas Villa, one word that comes to mind is purity, exposed by the bare essence of lines, forms, and objects against this blinding light. The main living room becomes a part of the terrace and a fully-equipped kitchen space will bring out the chef in you. With all the comforts, clean, and sophisticated, the bedrooms are tastefully designed, all king in size, and two have their own ensuite bathrooms. The annex bedroom is situated within a Cycladic style cave room which is separate from the main villa. Villa Achilleas is authentically styled in the traditional Greek -island style that constitutes a haven of serenity and relaxation that makes the most of the glorious outdoor weather and views. The terrace, lounge and garden are thoughtfully designed to provide multiple areas of shade during the day as the sun moves around the villa. As an added feature for your enjoyment, the villa also has a Jacuzzi with seating for seven, a gas BBQ, hammocks, 2 Canoes and 2 Mountain bikes.
Villa Achilleas is set in a glorious landscape built in the middle of olive tree orchard commanding breathtaking views over Psira Island and Tholos beach which sits beneath. The villa is only 4 km from Kavousi, one of the most interesting villages of Lassithi, 19 km northeast of Ierapetra and 26 km east of Agios Nikolaos. Significant Minoan settlements have been excavated opposite, at Psira lsland, while Theriospilos cave is decorated with impressive bands from stalagmites. The main square in the center of Kavousi deserves the guest’s attention, as well as the monumental olive tree in Crete with a trunk diameter of 17m, the age of which is estimated at 2 km to 5,000 years. Tholos beach is a large bay with turquoise water and soft pebbles on the shore. One of the most exciting hikes in eastern Crete is the Kavousi-Mesonas Gorge-Thripti route.
