Villa in Crete with seaviews
Villa Santorini sits atop a dramatic cliff that makes it seem like the dividing line between the sea and sky. Shining bright white for all to see, it stands against the bold blue seas in glorious contrast that immerses our guests in the true Greek Island experience. Villa Santorini was designed to reflect the architecture found in the Caldera, where classic white buildings and blue-domed roofs reflect the bright Greek sun. Here we pay homage to the great architecture that is renowned throughout the world.
Our villa not only reflects the bright sun and the wine-dark Aegean but immerses our guests into the world of Antiquity. It is very easy to picture ships below, manned by Odysseus on his search for a home. When guests relax in our courtyard or gardens, the rustling of the distant olive groves and the hum of cicadas transports them to a far-off time of mystery and imagination.
When guests enter the doors of Villa Santorini, the first thing they see is a unique, hand-crafted stairway encased in glass and plasterwork, through which guests can quickly preview the rest of this elegant space. To the left, a spacious living room decorated and furnished with tasteful furniture and art, all specially curated to evoke a blend of luxury and comfort. Across from the living room is the spacious and specially equipped kitchen, designed with both chefs and home cooks in mind, and the dining area that overlooks the sea. From this floor, guests can access the courtyard, pool, and gardens through a large sliding glass door.
Ascending the staircase, decorated with art that evokes the classical works of old and allowing guests an interior view of the dome, sits Villa Santorini’s first floor. There are three gorgeous bedrooms, two of which have balconies that overlook the Aegean Sea, so guests may take advantage of the gorgeous views. All bedrooms are elegantly furnished with taste and comfort in mind. The master bedroom is an en-suite, complete with a walk-in shower and a double sink vanity. The two double bedrooms share a bathroom with independent access that is equally lovely.
Should guests descend to the lower level, they will find two comfortably furnished Twin en-suite bedrooms, as well as a double bedroom that is equally comfortable. All rooms on this floor are spacious, and each has its own television. The Lower Level also houses a kitchenette and laundry area.
Stepping outside the sliding glass door, our guests will find themselves in our beautiful white courtyard. Here you will find our beautiful pool, the gardens, a barbeque, and several sitting and sunbathing areas. Our pool was specially designed to reflect the silhouette of the villa, and at night, lights within the pool reflect the beauty of the Cretan night sky. Our gardens were designed to evoke the feeling of finding an oasis in the desert, with fragrant and colorful flowers and trees lining the paths. Villa Santorini is also home to Wine Dark Sea’s distinctive archway, which perfectly frames the ocean behind it. Many couples have used Villa Santorini for their wedding specifically for this beautiful archway.
Though Villa Santorini is situated in the town of Lygaria, it is only 10 minutes away from the beautiful beach town of Agia Pelagia, where guests can find many incredible tavernas, shops, and nightspots. It is a beautiful cove with crystal blue waters, soft white sand, small cliffs to dive from, and a relaxed atmosphere that is unique to this small town. Villa Santorini is only 30 minutes from the Heraklion airport, and 15 minutes from Downtown Heraklion.
