Description

This villa is unique in Crete, and has been decorated by Fabio Zardi, an Italian interior designer. It is located on the top of the hill of Fysaeri, less than 15 minutes from the beach, with a beautiful view of the Gulf of Souda. On the other side are the mountains, which are covered with snow until the end of May. The location is perfect for those who want to go to the beach or hiking in the countryside.

The villa consists of two floors:

- the ground floor has a patio, a big living room with fireplace, a completely equipped kitchen, a studio, a bedroom and a bathroom with bathtub, a big terrace; the living room is decorated with a precious neo-gothic library, richly inlaid and with beautiful spiral columns. A Murano glass chandelier illuminates the central table, around which are placed in walnut chairs upholstered in silk velvet. Two silk Fortuny lamps help to give a warm and romantic atmosphere.

The villa consists of two floors:

- the ground floor has a patio, a big living room with fireplace, a completely equipped kitchen, a studio, a bedroom and a bathroom with bathtub, a big terrace; the living room is decorated with a precious neo-gothic library, richly inlaid and with beautiful spiral columns. A Murano glass chandelier illuminates the central table, around which are placed in walnut chairs upholstered in silk velvet. Two silk Fortuny lamps help to give a warm and romantic atmosphere. The living room is also decorated with a precious carved chest, from the Castle of La Rochefoucauld in France, covered by an old silk brocade. A collection of works of art decorates the chest, above which towers over an ancient mirror in carved and gilded wood from the 17th century. A writing desk of the sixteenth and a console seventeenth century complete the decoration, together with a French pendulum clock of the eighteenth century, fully functional. Three Persian rugs adorn the floor. The studio is a veritable cabinet of curiosities, with oil paintings, antique portraits, an astrolabe, an armillary sphere, engravings, and other interesting objects. The master bedroom has a large wardrobe, an antique mirror in carved and gilded wood, and four antique engravings with views of Venice.

- the first floor has a second bedroom, a bathroom with shower, a lounge with tv and hi-fi system, a big terrace with veranda and another small terrace. The upstairs room has a sofa adorned with precious Fortuny velvet pillows, a Fortuny tapestry and two tables with a pair of antique silver candlesticks, and two oil paintings on canvas depicting views of ancient ruins.

The entrance to the villa is independent: there is a large open space to park the car and a small house with barbecue and wood burning oven. A small orchard is located at the rear of the house.

The villa is destined to educated people, of a social and cultural high-level, that appreciate the art, style, sophistication and elegance. True "connoisseurs" who are accustomed to live in luxury and want to spend a relaxing holiday in the peace and privacy of an absolutely unique villa. For this reason, the mansion will not be rented to families with children or young people who want to have fun and party: it is not the right place. Given the value of the furniture, paintings, carpets and generally of all the furniture, pets are not allowed. In the basement of the villa lives a Greek family, very quiet and respectful: the property is obviously separate, but it is still required to comply with the hours of rest and silence during the day and the night. On request it is possible to have a daily or weekly cleaning service, as well as a chef to prepare meals. The equipment of the kitchen is designed to prepare sophisticated meals. The tablecloths, glasses, cutlery and tableware are all brand new and elegant. The villa has a satellite internet connection (20 Mbps) on request. Transfer from and to the airport, as well as car rental, can be provided on request.

The Chania Prefecture region

Apokoronas is a wonderful area between the Gulf of Souda and the White Mountains (Lefk Ori). Small villages, historical and archaeological finds, amazing walking paths, good food in the traditional taverns... a perfect place for a relaxing stay. There is a lot of people from abroad that decided to buy a house, from UK, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden... The region has a good weather all year long, and is full of crops, olive groves, orchards, woods. And there are a lot of beaches all around. If you rent a car, you may easily have a tour of Crete or just visit the main places around Chania and Rethimno.

Tsivaras

The villa is a fantastic example of the typical Venetian mansion of the Cretan tradition. The location is perfect for a stay in the area of Chania, since the house is just 15 minutes far from the town. The villages of Vamos and Kalives, 5 minutes far from the villa, have restaurants, taverns, car rentals, shops, minimarket, supermaket and all services.

My recommendations are based on my experience and local knowledge.

Best local café/coffee: There are traditional cafè (kafenion) in Vamos and Kalives, as well as in other small villages around.
Best breakfast eateries: We can recommend places on request.
Best lunch eateries: We can recommend places on request.
Best night restaurants: We can recommend places on request.
Best paid activities: The beach of Kalives, as well as other beaches of the Gulf of Souda, are very close (10 minutes far).
Best free activities: Walks and excursions nearby. We can recommend interesting historical excursion to the ancient Venetian monuments in the area.
Best grocery store: In Vamos, just 5 minutes from the villa, there is an English butcher with a variety of delicious cuts of meat. You can also ask him to prepare meat for the barbecue.
Closest grocery store: In Vamos, the English Butcher, otherwise several stores in Vamos and Kalives
Closest liquor store: In Chania there are several liquor stores with single malt whiskeys and other selected products.
Closest money machine: ATM are in Vamos and Kalives.
