Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Villa Koumos sits in a peaceful location just above the traditional village of Gavalochori, which provides it with commanding views across the roof tops that not only include beautiful sea views but also spectacular vistas of Western Cretes' impressive 'White Mountains'.
The villa has been well-designed, on three levels, to ensure that nearly all rooms in the house benefit from these exceptional views. The spacious open plan kitchen/dining/living area has the prime spot at the top of the house from where a large terrace is accessed, perfect for enjoying alfresco dining, and, of course, the stunning views. The kitchen is well-equipped and the living room is well furnished with comfortable seating. The three bedrooms, one double with an en-suite bathroom and two twins with a shared bathroom are situated on a lower level; again all have balconies that enjoy the marvellous views. The attractive pool, where the views continue, is situated just below the bedroom level, accessed by a few steps from the bedroom balconies.
The village of Gavalohori is just one of many beautiful rural villages situated in the very spectacular Apokoronos region of Western Crete. It is a region that offers natural beauty, history, picturesque villages, pretty beaches, rural tracks, coastal paths, mountain plateaus, Byzantine churches, Venetian harbours, Roman, Hellenistic and Minoan remains. It also offers plenty to do for a family holiday with a choice of beaches, a popular water park, some water sports and boat trips all very accessible.
The centre of Gavalochori, accessed in 5 minutes on foot, offers a handful of excellent local tavernas, a bakery, where bread is baked daily on the premises, a mini-market and two cafes.
The closest beach is at the village resort of Almeritha, which can be reached in just 6 minutes by car. It has a sandy bay with safe swimming and plenty of facilities including waterside tavernas, a handful of shops, cafes and some water sports.
