This truly luxurious villa stands in its own, large, private plot with fantastic sea views across Souda Bay to the north, mountain and valley views to the west and forest views to the east and south. The plot is very privately situated, where you can be sure of not being overlooked, set inside a designated forest area surrounded by lush cypress and pine trees. Just a short 5 minute drive takes you to the closest beach at Almirida, and the villa is approximately 45 minutes drive from Chania Airport. The villa is double gated for privacy; one secure gate for access to the plot and the second for access to the garden and villa itself. Unusually, despite its privacy, it is only a short distance to the Byzantine village of Gavalochori where there is a good selection of grocery shops, tavernas and kafenion.
The villa is comfortably furnished and with no neighbours to worry about (see the map) so you can be totally relaxed in the villa or in the garden and around the large private pool confident that you will only be disturbed by the sound of distant goat bells. The villa is air-conditioned throughout and centrally heated which makes it a good choice for early or late season holidays when the evenings may turn cool and some heating may be required.
Villa Kournedes makes for a perfect holiday, a superb villa with fantastic sea and mountain views, away from the crowds yet with easy access to all the amenities that make Crete such a special place for a relaxing holiday.
