Villa in Ano Daratso
This sparkling villa is well-named. Experience the joy of staying here in Chania, minutes from the heart of town and the golden sand beaches of the west coast of Crete. Exclusive style, sophisticated architecture and enviable service may make it challenging for you to leave your comfortable and idyllic surroundings to discover all the island has to offer. Located at the top of a hill, the villa is built in five semi-levels sparing no luxury. On the outside, the aquamarine private pool is surrounded by a lush garden looking out to the view of the town and glistening sea. Whether you love technology, outdoor activities or both, Villa Joy will cater for your needs. There’s a home theater system, Wi-Fi, DVD player, iPod dock and computer for indoor entertainment. Outside you’ll find a swimming pool, plunge pool, jetted tub and gas barbecue offer more than enough to do in this child-friendly vacation villa. The large pool is exclusive to Villa Joy dwellers’ pleasure. It is divided into two sections - a circular shallower jetted tub whose water cascades into the larger almond-shaped deeper section. The poolside and garden offer spots of cool shade and radiant light, as well as privacy and panoramic views. Enjoy a meal by a hired chef (additional charge will apply and advance notice is required) or create your own masterpiece in the fully equipped Italian design kitchen, using fresh local products of the highest quality that we can bring to your doorstep. A series of tended terraces lead up the hilly landscape to the house and pool. The living and dining areas exude sleek simplicity. And the décor throughout is calming with splashes of vibrant color to bring it to life. Villa Joy boasts five bedrooms plus a guest suite. All bedrooms either have their own en-suite facilities or share them with another room. The property sleeps a maximum of 10 guests and there’s additional bedding in the form of a pull-out bed in the playroom and two twin fold-out beds if some of your party want their own space. All bedrooms have air conditioning for maximum comfort. There’s plenty to see and do within a short distance of Villa Joy. Take your pick from a glorious sandy beach, restaurants and shopping outlets in the local town. An added bonus is that the airport is only a 25 minute drive away. Copyright © Luxury Retreats.

Villa in Vourvoulos
Poised on a hillside surveying the topaz Aegean Sea, Tramountana is an architecturally inspiring traditional Greek villa that looks as if it could have been fashioned out of snow. Generous outdoor areas and a high-quality interior finish lend it an air of laid-back luxury, blessed by breathtaking sea views. A separate entrance shields it from the road and there’s enclosed parking if you travel by car. Your accommodation includes complimentary car rental, third party insurance and unlimited mileage as well as transfers to and from the airport. Stepping inside Tramountana, you’re immediately struck by its uncluttered simplicity. Modern furnishings are offset by some older pieces and the décor is tastefully subtle. The main entrance leads to a bright and spacious open-plan living and dining area. Comfortably cushioned sofas invite you to take a break from the sun and choose from a selection of movies and music. A flat-screen TV, DVD player, sound system and high-speed wireless internet access makes it easy to stay in touch with the world. If you’d rather switch off, a picture window offers bewitching views of the ever-changing ocean. Fix yourself a cool drink or snack in the fully equipped kitchen and step out onto the pool terrace. Outside, a sculpted infinity pool mirrors the sea beyond and you can spend many hours just drifting and dreaming. Curvaceous sun loungers beckon you to take your place in the sun and an outdoor jetted tub promises to massage the tension from your shoulders. A well-stocked garden borders the villa and you are invited to help yourself to herbs and seasonal vegetables. Welcome shade can be found under the pergola, where you can cluster with friends for a leisurely lunch or tasty evening barbecue before retiring to the outdoor lounge for a nightcap. A second dining area at the other end of the terrace offers opportunities for more romantic dinners under the stars. Three air-conditioned, simply furnished bedrooms are brightened by vibrant bedspreads and prints. Bedrooms one and two are both en-suite and are positioned on the ground floor with access to a private terrace, while a third bedroom occupies the loft. Mosaic-tiled modern bathrooms with tubs and showers complete the ensemble. Massage treatments, yoga sessions and beauty care can all be provided at extra cost, and if you’re tempted to explore the locality you’re within walking distance of the beach, shops and nearest town. It’s 10km to the airport. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.
