About the villa

Oozing style and quality, from its airy rooms to its very contemporary bathrooms, this house is as calm and beautiful as the serene views from its terraces. The villa uses unique wall hangings and striking artworks to complement décor in cool natural colours. Pale aqua and powder blue highlights soften the look of a sleek and contemporary dining kitchen, raised a couple of steps above the sitting room with its wood burning stove and sliding doors to a stylishly furnished outdoor lounge. Each of the four bedrooms has WiFi, satellite TV, luxury bedlinen and en suite bathroom or hydro-massage shower. One is at ground level, two open out to sea view balconies, and the master suite, crowning the house, boasts a king size four-poster, a mini-kitchen for morning coffee, and a roof terrace with a hot tub and fantastic views of the sea and White Mountains. 

Outside, a hammock is set on the sun deck and an al fresco dining area overlooks the infinity pool. Aoriete is 300m from Kokkino Chorio village square, 1.5km from unspoilt Koutalas beach, and 4km from lively Almyrida beach with water sports, cafés and fish tavernas.

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
