PoolYes - shared pool
This very well maintained two-bedroom villa is situated high above the traditional and popular village of Plaka and offers simply amazing sea views. This property is a perfect holiday home close to the village and Almerida Beach and would also be a great permanent residence here in Crete.
The spacious 121 sqm villa is all on one level and has been designed to make maximum use of the outdoor spaces to enjoy Crete's fabulous climate in all seasons. The home is in a secure and very neighbourly complex sharing a large pool. Entry to the villa is via a staircase from the huge 45 sqm street-level enclosed garage and storeroom.
The entry terrace is most welcoming with flowering plants and shrubs and extends to the rear of the home with access to the kitchen as well. The main entry leads to the spacious sitting and dining area with a very useful closed wood-burner for our occasional chilly weather. Sliding glass doors from the sun room lead to the front terrace with a barbecue area and magnificent sea views. This terrace wraps around to the other side of the home, again very well designed with plants and shrubs and a secluded and private outdoor seating area.
The kitchen is situated to the rear of the home and is complete with built-in appliances and plenty of cupboard and worktop space. Sliding glass doors lead from the kitchen to the side terrace.
The master bedroom with ensuite shower room is situated at the front of the home. The guest bedroom is at the rear of the home with sliding glass doors leading to the rear terrace. The family bath is located between the bedrooms and there is also a very useful storage room in this area.
Outdoor space is very important in Crete and terraces simply abound in this home! The sea views from the front terrace are superb and with the barbecue in this area, it is a great place to take in the sun and views. The garden terrace off the kitchen is very convenient and the landscaped bedroom-side terrace on the opposite side of the home also has a secluded seating area. A staircase leads from here to the rooftop terrace with a sailcloth covered pergola and shaded seating area. Of course the views from this level are spectacular at any time of the day or night!

- Aluminium doors and double-glazed windows with fly screens
