Welcome back to our New Home of the Month series, where we showcase fabulous holidaylettings.co.uk homes from around the world. In April, an enchanting Disney-themed apartment in Orlando made us want to pack our suitcases faster than you can say “Mickey Mouse” but this month, we’re taking things easy and soaking up the sun at a luxurious villa in Crete.
You only need to look at the photos to see how this villa got its name. It’s a slice of paradise where state-of-the-art mod cons and glorious sea and mountain views combine to make the perfect relaxing escape. Chilling out has never been this easy.
The villa sleeps up to eight guests so it’s ideal for families or groups of friends. The open plan bedroom with two sofa beds has beautiful sea views, but the master bedroom is the star of the show. With a queen-size bed and walk-in closet, space certainly won’t be an issue. The ensuite is the stuff that bathroom dreams are made of, with a jacuzzi, hydro-massage, ozone-therapy and a even a TV. Treat yourself to a long soak with a glass of local wine at hand.
Everything in the villa is designed to help you relax and enjoy your stay. The little extras in the kitchen, such as the coffee machine and dishwasher, save precious holiday time. There’s Wifi, a home cinema and a Playstation 3, too. Although we doubt you’ll be spending much time looking at a screen when you can simply look out of the window to see spectacular sea and mountain views…
In fact, you’ll probably want to spend lots of time using the fantastic outdoor facilities. Laze on the sun loungers next to the private outdoor pool (which can be heated if needed) and jump in for a swim whenever you fancy. Feeling peckish? There’s a bbq, ready and waiting to be fired up, and a bar where you can mix a refreshing cocktail or two. The enclosed children’s area means you can sit back and watch the little ones burn off some energy.
And if all of that R&R wasn’t enough, additional treats are available on request including manicures and pedicures, hairdressing, massage, 24hr food delivery, vehicle hire and excursions. You’ll feel well and truly pampered after a stay at Paradise Villa.
If you like stunning sea views, beautiful beaches and modern living, you’ll love this villa. Families can spend quality time together in the peaceful surroundings without being too far from the action as Maleme, with its lively restaurants and cafes, is just 5km away. Groups of friends will love the spacious feel and can dine al fresco while watching the sun go down.
If you can drag yourself away from the villa, there’s lots to see and do in the area. Visit the Manousakis Winery and sample some quaffable Greek wines. Take a stroll around the Botanical Park & Gardens of Crete or the Samaria Gorge National Park. History enthusiasts will love the Chania Archaeological Museum and foodies will be salivating over the Greek tavernas serving up freshly caught seafood and local cuisine.
