About the villa

Cool in every sense of the word, Armonia’s calm and uncluttered design combines muted neutral tones with artworks and artefacts in brilliant aqua, the clean lines of a gleaming white kitchen, and oodles of rich teak furnishings, indoors and out. Its airy sitting room opens out, through a full window wall, to a timber sundeck beside the private heated pool, which has a shallow section for youngsters and is overlooked by a spacious dining terrace. Both enjoy broad panoramas over a sprinkling of villages to super-scenic Souda Bay, as do the villa’s three bedrooms, each with its own furnished balcony, chic en suite bath and/or shower room, WiFi and satellite TV. 

One of the trio of beautiful Adeste Villas, Armonia is set on an amphitheatric hillside, just 300m from the old-world centre of ‘Zorba’s village’, Kokkino Chorio; 1.5km from traditional tavernas and terrific sunset views in atmospheric Plaka; and within 6km of a choice of beaches ranging from popular sweeping sands to undisturbed  rocky coves.

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
