If you are looking for peace and quiet in a rural location near the sea and hills then this is the villa. Sfinari is on the West coast.

The villa is a 25 minute drive to Falassarna beach, 45 minutes to Balos Lagoon, 45 minutes to Elafonisi beach, 1hour 20 minutes to Palechora and about 30 minutes to Kissamoss (nearest big supermarket). Sfinari beach is a five minute drive away.

Plenty of living space both inside and out. Clean... more
