Experience moments of relaxation by enjoying your coffee or drink in the living room of the villa watching the view from on top, or plan your next trip to one of the hundreds of locations of the island worth visiting.

Right in the middle of Crete

With excellent views towards the capital (Heraklion) and the endless blue of the Cretan Sea, villa Boutique Residence is located right in the middle of Crete, at its most central hub, and is suitable for those wishing to explore the island; it connects the north with the south and the west with the east. This makes the villa as the most ideal starting point for excursions to beautiful beaches, traditional villages, large cities, attractions of worldwide interest and other great destinations.

The quality of your stay is enhanced further by the fact that, although the villa is located in a privileged location within nature maintaining as such its privacy, it is also very close to central hubs, i.e. to the airports of Heraklion and Chania, to Heraklion port, hospitals, banks and other services that secure a safe stay for you and your family.
