The living space and pool area in this unique one bedroom villa Abyss is all on one level with access via a wheelchair friendly pathway which leads through the gardens to the car parking space. There is great emphasis on outdoor living, with much indoor space flowing through to the external terrace. The stylish outdoor dining area is covered by a specially designed pergola which also extends over part of the pool providing some shade but also allowing sunlight through. Surrounding the villa are thoughtfully planted gardens with endemic shrubs, flowers and trees which are complimented by traditional stone walls that blend into the natural environment. The private infinity pool has full width Roman steps overlooking the lush olive groves towards the stunning blue Aegean Sea.

There is great emphasis on outdoor living, with much indoor space flowing through to the external terrace. The stylish outdoor dining area is covered by a specially designed pergola which also extends over part of the pool providing some shade but also allowing sunlight through. Surrounding the villa are thoughtfully planted gardens with endemic shrubs, flowers and trees which are complimented by traditional stone walls that blend into the natural environment. The private infinity pool has full width Roman steps overlooking the lush olive groves towards the stunning blue Aegean Sea. Throughout the villa, there are many large 'picture' windows making the most of the natural sunlight and providing panoramic sea views from any room. The innovative architectural concept of this villa means that the living and sleeping areas are in two separate buildings with access to each other via an adjoining stone walkway. The living area is compact but modern with extensive natural stone features that extend right up to the eves of the building. In addition, the lounge has a Cimentogonia surface sofa bed suitable for sleeping an extra person. The kitchen area is open plan with stylish and practical Corian work surfaces with an informal dining area and top of the range appliances. Accessible from a large terrace, the master bedroom is open plan with an award-winning COCO Mat double bed and glass partition separating the sleeping space and modern dressing area. The spacious en-suite bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath that faces a private picture window with wonderful sea views. Villa Abyss is the ideal retreat for a discerning couple or friends looking for style and laid back ambience.More

About the neighborhood
Boat trips from Kissamos to Gramvousa Island and Balos Lagoon: From May to October, you can take daily cruises from Kissamos port leaving in the morning and returning in the evening. From mid-June and until mid-September, there are also midday departures. Why you would want to visit? For the spectacular beaches and fascinating geological aspects, the flora (especially in the spring), the archaeology (Venetian castle) - and of course the fun of a boat trip! About Gramvousa & Balos: History: Gramvousa (also called Tigani peninsula). The castle on top of the island was built by the Venetians to protect Crete from a Turkish occupation. It was one of the last unconquered bastions and it was the first area of Crete to be liberated from the Turks in 1825 (Turks were expelled from all the rest of...
How to get there
Directions from Heraklion airport: It will take around 2.5 to 3 hours to reach us if you drive slowly. After you have collected your hire car at Heraklion airport, join the highway heading west (it is all sign posted) towards Rethymno and Chania. Keep driving, bypassing Rethymno and Chania heading for Kissamos/Kastelli in the west. You DO NOT EXIT the highway at any point. After driving through Kissamos (which is 45 kilometers west of Chania), you pass a ferry port on the right. From there, continue to the next gas station on your left (it is a red one - Silk Oil) and you will see the villas around 300 meters away on the hillside to your left. You cannot miss them! Directions from Chania airport: From Chania airport make your way towards Souda (on the 2nd roundabout follow signs to S...
