Description

The living space and pool area in this unique one bedroom villa Abyss is all on one level with access via a wheelchair friendly pathway which leads through the gardens to the car parking space.
There is great emphasis on outdoor living, with much indoor space flowing through to the external terrace. The stylish outdoor dining area is covered by a specially designed pergola which also extends over part of the pool providing some shade but also allowing sunlight through.
Surrounding the villa are thoughtfully planted gardens with endemic shrubs, flowers and trees which are complimented by traditional stone walls that blend into the natural environment. The private infinity pool has full width Roman steps overlooking the lush olive groves towards the stunning blue Aegean Sea.
Throughout the villa, there are many large "picture" windows making the most of the natural sunlight and providing panoramic sea views from any room.

Throughout the villa, there are many large "picture" windows making the most of the natural sunlight and providing panoramic sea views from any room.
The innovative architectural concept of this villa means that the living and sleeping areas are in two separate buildings with access to each other via an adjoining stone walkway.
The living area is compact but modern with extensive natural stone features that extend right up to the eves of the building. In addition, the lounge has a Cimentogonia surface sofa bed suitable for sleeping an extra person. The kitchen area is open plan with stylish and practical Corian work surfaces with an informal dining area and top of the range appliances.
Accessible from a large terrace, the master bedroom is open plan with an award-winning COCO Mat double bed and glass partition separating the sleeping space and modern dressing area.
The spacious en-suite bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath that faces a private picture window with wonderful sea views.
Villa Abyss is the ideal retreat for a discerning couple or friends looking for style and laid back ambience.

Location description from owner

The Chania Prefecture region

Crete is the largest of the Greek islands and the second largest (after Cyprus) of the Eastern Mediterranean. It lies in the Southern Aegean Sea, at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa.
Crete is 260km long with the widest point being 60km and the smallest, 12km. There are high mountain ranges from West to East of the island. The White Mountains to the West with Mt Gingilos at 2,453 meters, in the middle is the Ida Mountains with Mt Psiloritis at 2,456 meters and to the East is Mt Dikti at 2,148 meters.
These mountains are gifted with lush and fertile plateaus such as Lassithi and Omalos, wondrous and mythological caves such as Diktaion and Idaion and many gorges with the most famous being the Samaria

Kastelli Kissamou

Boat trips from Kissamos to Gramvousa Island and Balos Lagoon:
From May to October, you can take daily cruises from Kissamos port leaving in the morning and returning in the evening.
From mid-June and until mid-September, there are also midday departures.
Why you would want to visit?
For the spectacular beaches and fascinating geological aspects, the flora (especially in the spring), the archaeology (Venetian castle) - and of course the fun of a boat trip!
About Gramvousa & Balos:
History: Gramvousa (also called Tigani peninsula). The castle on top of the island was built by the Venetians to protect Crete from a Turkish occupation. It was one of the last unconquered bastions and it was the first area of Crete to be liberated from the Turks in 1825 (Turks were expelled from all the rest of Crete only by 1898). 3000 Cretan rebels were planning operations from Gramvousa.
During this period of turmoil, the residents of the island started looting boats passing through, which gained the island its pirate reputation.
Flora: The Gramvousa/Balos region is a protected biotope. There are 400 different plants on Gramvousa, 26 of them endemic to Crete. The Anthemis glaberrima (a type of daisy), the Allium platakisi (a wild onion) and the Silene litegripetala are found only in this area and are protected species.
In the shallow parts of the sea, the Mediterranean plant Posidonia oceanica thrives, providing shelter for marine life.
Fauna: 98 bird species have been reported in the area. 20 of them are protected and 14 of them are threatened species (like the vulture Europe Gypaetusbarbatus). The Mediterranean seal (Monachus Monachus) and the Caretta Caretta turtle find shelter in this area. Also, a flock of wild donkeys lives on the peninsula!
Balos bay and lagoon: Clear waters and desert-isle sand, an exceptional place in a wind-protected area of the sea.

Falasarna is a peaceful and golden sandy beach with beautiful clear turquoise waters. There are just a few simple tavernas and not much to do but except walk and absorb the wild beauty of the area or relax in the sun. The beach is wide and seemingly endless.
In the hills behind the beach, you will find the ruins of the ancient city and harbour of Falasarna.

Elafonissi is a tiny island with white sand, separated from the shore by a lagoon no more than a metre deep. Elafonissi means “deer island”, but you won’t see any deer on the island or in the surrounding area. The island is 40 kilometres from Kastelli and it will take you about an hour to get here.

The gorge of Samaria is situated in the National park of Samaria, in the White Mountains in West Crete. The park is supervised by the Department of Forestry and the gorge is generally open only from the beginning of May to the end of October. In winter, high water makes the gorge dangerous and impassable. It will also be closed on rainy days (too dangerous because of rock falls). Your entrance fee of 10 euros ensures that
• the path is maintained and is substantially better than "normal" paths in Crete.
• there are wardens along the way (in radio contact with each other) who will help you in case of trouble or injury.
• there is also (in theory) a doctor stationed in the abandoned village of Samaria.
• there are well-maintained springs on the way so that you do not have to carry much water.
• there are toilets in several places and plenty of rubbish bins.
• you also get a set of rules, aimed at protecting the park and making the experience safe and pleasant for everyone.

The gorge is open only during the day time and if you want to start walking in the afternoon you will only be allowed in up to a certain point. The guards want to make sure that everybody who walks in also gets out before nightfall. This is the reason why they ask you to present your ticket on the way out as it (supposedly) enables them to know if there is anyone still in the park at night.
