A pearl in South Crete! Elegant seafront villa with private pool & amazing views
1 of 43A pearl in South Crete!
1 night minimum
Our elegant villa is a private residence set at a stunning scenery, the area of Agios Pavlos, in the south center of Rethymno region, only a few steps away from the big blue! If you are courageous you can walk the 166 steps (counting from the terrace) to the sea! There, you are in a world of your own in a secluded bay! Sometimes the sea is like a mirror and you can see its bottom. Often you hear the waves rushing to the shore. Its always amazingly relaxing! You may see the local fishermen cast their nets, but you would have to be on time. You may see the boat pass from Agia Galini to Agios Pavlos and further afield and sometimes people fish from the rock opposite.
Generally, the villa sets in peace and quiet, ideal for those who want to escape from their daily routine back in homeland and...Our elegant villa is a private residence set at a stunning scenery, the area of Agios Pavlos, in the south center of Rethymno region, only a few steps away from the big blue!

The UPPER LEVEL comprises the communal living spaces of the villa, including an open-plan sitting and kitchen area, a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom features toilet, shower and bidet. Indoors, there is a modern and fully-equipped kitchen so you can cook with a view, with herbs from the garden. Outdoors, there is a big terrace with a magnificent infinity swimming pool (having a room-aquarium underneath with sky lights through the pool) with salt water, along with a protected external stone pergola and as this is not a flat area, children have to be supervised. For even more comfort, there is a change room with toilet and shower under the pool terrace.
Through large openings the interior and the exterior are unified, creating various resting and relaxation corners throughout the day, some in shadow and some exposed to the sun that bathes the building.
Behind the pool, there is a veranda with a shaded dining area equipped with a BBQ and a sink. On the terrace, which is very well protected against the main westerly winds, you choose between sun and shadow, the barbecue area seats everybody easily and there are plenty of places on the other terraces and in the garden to find solitude. There can be serious wind in the south, but this also makes the high temperatures bearable. The house is designed to provide protection!
Indoors, the selection of materials is based on minimalism and simplicity; there is fireplace, underfloor heating and air-conditioning has been installed in all rooms and the studio. Also, the color white predominates on the walls and ceiling, while local marble is used in several forms on floors, the kitchen bench and on bathrooms, with monolithic carved stone blocks combined with wooden elements in natural oak, helping to create a residence with a pleasing aesthetic.

Our sea-front villa is amazingly secluded offering full of privacy and living in very high standards! Αt a distance of 55km south of Rethymno and 15-minute drive from the picturesque village of Agia Galini, Agios Pavlos is undoubtedly a coastal region of exceptional natural beauty. The villa stands on a seafront cliff, 40 meters above the sea, with a proprietary staircase into the bay that is virtually private overlooking Aniforas, a spectacular rock protruding into the sea and the Paximadia islands. Brand new, built in 2017, only few steps away from the sparkling blue waters of the Libyan Sea. Set at a stunning scenery, the villa is situated in the amazing area of Agios Pavlos with its very pleasant micro-climate.
The property has easy access from a rural road and it offers several options to explore unspoiled beaches along the south coast; such as Triopetra, Agios Georgios and Agia Galini.
If you like clear waters, beaches in beautiful small bays and places less crowded, the area of Agios Pavlos and its surroundings is the ideal destination for you!
In about 10-minute drive you can reach the beautiful beach of Agios Pavlos, well-organised with some amenities and a taverna with sunloungers and parasols, specially needed if you travel with children! The bay is quite nice!
