Beautiful Holiday Home with Stunning Views over the Sea

For Rent: Medium-sized Villa in Idyllic Cretan Mountain Village

If you are looking for a comfortable holiday home in a quiet, picturesque location, making the perfect space for a sunny holiday (beach and/or walking), you have come to the right place: we have available for rent an extraordinarily gorgeous villa.

This beautiful house - offering space to 2 couples plus children - has recently been built and is now available for rent (having gone way over budget, we have to pay the mortgage somehow!). Everything is still brand-new, from the appliances to the decoration. The design emphasises natural, simple materials (Jerusalem stone and wood), and creates a stylish, un-cluttered and comfortable atmosphere.

The house is located in a small village on the Western South coast of Crete, offering gorgeous views over the sea. It is set amongst olive and carob trees, on a South-facing slope, with stunning sunrises and sunsets. It is designed to be cool in the summer, and comfortably warm in the winter. There are views to the sea in two directions: the main view to the South towards the 'Libyan Sea' and Anidri beach; and the view to the Southwest and towards the nearby tourist town of Paleochora and the sea there.

The village Anidri is a special place, combining traditional Greek charm with modern facilities and a cosmopolitan atmosphere - providing a home for a small local community and a dedicated contingent of tourists, away from the mass tourism and concrete hell of Northern Crete. You are secluded even from the low-key bustle of Paleochora which however is only a few minutes' drive away and will provide for all your modern needs of civilisation.

All in all, we have tried our best to make this the perfect base for an ideal holiday, working with the land and the climate to create an easy, comfortable and effective living environment.

About the House

It is an unusually stylish, comfortable house, offering accommodation for up to two couples, plus children. The open-plan design of the living area and the sumptuous all-round veranda afford the best combination of indoor comfort and Greek outdoor living.

The house has a state-of-the-art solar system (SolarFocus), providing for all your heating and hot water needs (of which there will not be many in the summer, but you will learn to appreciate it during the rest of the year). It also features a clean-burning Dunsley eco-stove to backup the solar system during those rare sun-less days (only 35 days per year and blue skies the rest of the time). The stone-tiled ground floor has underfloor heating throughout, giving a gentle but effective source of warmth in the winter (in practice it's needed for only 10-12 weeks in the year).

The house is equipped with new and modern appliances, and the kitchen has a gas hob and an electric oven, not only allowing you to be self-catering, but to actually enjoy it.
