About the villa

Alamo offers a rare opportunity to experience authentic rural Crete, enjoy the island’s best beaches, explore the little lanes of local villages, sip sundowners on Chania’s harbour-front, and come home to a masterpiece of modern design, all in a single day. In a hilltop setting with views of the sea and White Mountains, this is one of three villas which make-up the small but perfectly formed Adeste complex. A short stroll from the Venetian village of Kokkino Chorio, it is just 1.5km from the caves of unspoilt Koutalas beach and the famously atmospheric streets of Plaka, in a remarkable landscape criss-crossed with hiking trails. 
The villa is designed to reflect the diverse scenery that surrounds it, blurring the boundaries of indoor/outdoor living with glass walls on to gorgeous terraces, and a décor palette of chalks and clays, blues and greens. Luxury linens and toiletries complement calming bedrooms, each with contemporary en suite facilities and its own furnished balcony. A cool-toned sitting room adjoins a big and bright kitchen diner. And al fresco facilities include lounging and dining areas, and an inviting private pool with views down to the bay.

About the area

Western Crete

Average weather

When it comes to sheer character and beauty, there are many who consider Crete to be a true Grecian gem. It’s the country’s largest island with contrasting landscapes, a distinct culture and an atmosphere immersed in charm. It also offers a treasure trove of riches from villages steeped in tradition, the landmark White Mountains, secluded coves and architecture from the pages of history through to delightful coastal areas and lively resorts. It is this western part some say is the most enticing; it’s where you’ll find enchanting towns, a good range of beaches and pockets of local life untouched by the passage of time
