Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Why would one wish to spend time at Villa Minos? Set amongst olive groves, with spectacular sea views and the looming dominance of Mount Aenos to the north, it may be more appropriate to ask why one would not!
Located on the outskirts of the quaint village of Spartia, Villa Minos is a recently completed villa - built as a mixture of modern design with traditional furnishing - which provides elegant comfort and excellent facilities. At the end of a short farm road, guests will find this secluded treasure which will delight all with its many features and its emphasis on outdoor living.
The immediately surrounding areas have many well known picturesque beaches and popular restaurants in the beautiful setting of Captain Correlli's now famous story.
Villa Minos itself is striking in both its setting and design and stands out proudly from the olive trees surrounding it as one approaches the house along a little farm track. The bold terracotta and deep maroon colours that gave rise to the name evoke images of Cretan palaces of a bygone era. The mixture of stone walls and paved outdoor areas, ceramic tiles and marble flooring, the hardwood kitchen counters and loose furniture and the rustic patio covering, all combine with the flow of the house onto a spectacular pool area with its fantastic sea and mountain views. A few minutes in this setting and one realises why the emphasis of the lifestyle here is on outdoor living.
The villa itself consists of one double, en-suite bedroom and one twin, en-suite bedroom on the first floor as well as one twin bedroom on the ground floor. Each of the upstairs bedrooms leads onto a balcony over the pool area and each has superb sea and mountain views. The downstairs bedroom is immediately adjacent to the third bathroom - which is also a guest bathroom - and leads directly onto the pool deck. All the bedrooms are air-conditioned. The downstairs living areas consist of open plan spaces which flow easily into one another - the lounge with fireplace and the dining room both access the pool deck through sliding glass doors and the large kitchen area, with its kiaat counters, is a meal planner's delight with its many appliances and equipment!
The pool - Dimensions 10m x 5m Depth 0.5m - 1.9m
The pool area is equipped with an outdoor fridge to make access to a cool drink that much easier and also has an enchanting open shower with a view! At the end of the property, and only a few metres from the main house, is a private cottage consisting of an air-conditioned twin room with bathroom and little kitchenette which provides a additional accommodation for groups of guest larger than 6. This cottage is built in the same style as the main house, enjoys the same views and serves merely as an annex to the main house rather than a separate area all its own.

"Lovely villa with beautiful views!"
We loved the villa, amazing comfortable bedrooms and lovely outside terrace with incredible views. The location is quite remote and a car is essential I would say unless you plan to stay in the villa … More

The Villa is furnished in the most wonderful manner. Probably the best kitted kitchen we have ever experienced.
The views across the bay towards Lourdas and Mt.Aenos are breathtaking
Local beach is close enough to walk - back from the beach is not for the unfit
Local village (around 1Km away) is quant and easy enough to pop into for a meal at one of the tavernas.
