PoolYes - private pool
Spacious contemporary villa with spectacular views and private pool in a peaceful and quiet rural location in central Crete south of Rethymnon. This home was designed for outdoor living and enjoyment, a solar heated swimming pool for virtually year-round swimming, and to take advantage of the spectacular and forever unobstructed views.
If you are looking for somewhere comfortable in a very peaceful environment, where your closest neighbours are sheep and birds, there is nowhere else like this. It is rare, if not impossible, to find a house with this amount of privacy on Crete, as most houses and villas are built in groups or villages.
All of the rooms in this fabulous home have huge sliding "patio" windows. The design concept of the house is to bring the inside and outside spaces together, using neutral tiles, large rooms, and huge windows that slide open fully. The 45 square meter living room has a high vaulted ceiling.
Hand built bespoke cupboards for plenty of storage space. The same craftsman has made the fitted wardrobes and cupboards for the dressing room, giving excellent storage and simplicity.
Large 8500 sqm plot with stone terraces around the house, sloping with natural vegetation.
Situated at about 600 m above sea level, the air is a little cooler and much less humid than along the coast. Views are far reaching to the Mediterranean sea. The night sky is amazing with little or no light pollution.
Situated near the top of a hill between the villages of Myriokefala and Maroulou, the villa is very private but with shops and restaurants nearby. Owing to its location between the north and south coasts of Crete, nothing is very far away. The home is 1 km from the traditional village of Myriokefala with several kafenions and tavernas and just 10 minutes from the village of Argyroupolis with all its fine amenities plus its famous natural springs and waterfalls. The long sandy beaches east of Georgiopolis are just 15 km away, the city of Rethymnon with its well-preserved Venetian quarter is just a 30 minute drive and the south coast with many delightfully unspoiled beaches is just 20 km away.
