Villa Bella Mare

Heraklion, Crete
4 km

Perched atop a seaside mountain, overlooking the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea, is Villa Bella Mare. Wine Dark Sea spared no expense crafting this stone mansion, furnished with the finest luxuries. It is the perfect vacation villa for the discerning traveler who expects nothing less than the best when staying in one of the most beautiful corners of the world.

Bella Mare is a truly private retreat, protected and surrounded by strong and elegant walls that are evocative of the ancient walls surrounding the city of Heraklion, left by the medieval Venetians. Within the walls and surrounding the house are glorious garden paths that call to mind ancient gardens from antiquity.

Guests are immersed in a private Eden, filled with flowers and scented trees, which overlooks the dramatic blue hues of the Mediterranean Sea. However, this paradise is not so remote that guests will feel cut off from all the joys Crete has to offer. A short walk down the driveway leads guests to some of the best tavernas on the island. After a meal fit for the gods, guests can return to the villa for a swim in the luxurious pool and swim the fine line that blurs their view with the panoramic vista of the Mediterranean Sea. For those looking for a relaxing day at the beach, the closest is the lovely Ammoudara, which is a mere 15 minutes away by car. This villa is 20 minutes from Downtown Heraklion, and 25 minutes from the Heraklion Airport.

Bella Mare is uniquely designed to sleep ten people comfortably in its spacious five bedrooms. Located on the top floor is the master suite, furnished with a comfortable king-sized bed and elegant bedroom furniture. Watch the light dance across the oceans as the sun sets from the comfort of your private balcony, a perfect place for a romantic evening. All of the bedrooms have unique features and decor that leave all of our guests with a unique and memorable experience, no matter which bedroom they stay in. there are two full bathrooms outfitted with the finest accommodations, the first on the lower floor and a second in the master suite, along with a half bathroom near the living room area.

With an interior and exterior decorated with gorgeous marble, the villa is designed to be the epitome of elegance. The fireplace in the living area is made from a rare river stone from India that resembles polished wood.

The kitchen is equipped for the best of chefs, though wonderful restaurants are only a few steps outside the villa gate when even our most proficient cook decides they would like a break from cooking.

Just outside Villa Bella Mare’s front door is a gorgeous outdoor barbecue area where a “Monk’s” table with seating for twelve resides. There is a barbecue grill situated next to a brick pizza oven nestled at the base of a surrounding hill, giving guests fantastic opportunities for private dinner parties with family and friends. The poolside area is ideal for such private parties and can accommodate as many as 150 people.

Villa Bella Mare is the vacation destination for the guest looking for more from life, someone who demands the height of luxury. At Villa Bella Mare, the splendor of Cretan Luxury is yours for the taking.
