Escape to cube-shaped Mama La Roosa, a luxury two-bedroomed villa in the picturesque village of Agia Pelagia in Crete. With its contemporary whitewashed walls and natural-coloured furnishings, this villa oozes modern style. The spectacular setting also does the wooing – it’s in a breathtaking spot overlooking the azure Aegean Sea and surrounding tree-lined mountains. Think nature, comfort and tranquillity all rolled into one. The result? A truly unforgettable holiday experience.

Perhaps the main stand out feature is the private swimming pool terrace. There, the beautifully landscaped grounds are dotted with tall trees and are enclosed with rustic stone walls for complete privacy. When you’re not sun basking on one of the cushioned loungers or curling up with a book on the soft grass, enjoy an afternoon siesta on the chic swimming hammock. Then, cool off in the crystal-clear waters and take in the magical views of rolling hills spilling down the sea. Extra touches like a jute pouffe and rug, comfy bean bag chairs and lush fauna, complete the serene setting.

Inside, the opulence continues with a spacious open-plan living and dining room with direct access to the terrace and homely furnishings like plants and accent chairs. The room is split across a couple of levels, with a large dining table on the upper. There’s also a fully-equipped kitchen with all the amenities you’ll need for a home-from-home cooking experience. To add an extra feeling of light and space, there are floor-to-ceiling bi-fold doors and windows. With two en-suite master bedrooms featuring king size beds and fantastic sea views, bedtime is also a treat at Mama La Roosa villa.

You’ll find this villa between the charming Cretan villages of Agia Pelagia and Lygaria, a peaceful area near to friendly tavernas and soft sandy beaches. Want to explore further? It’s a 15km drive to Heraklion, the capital of the island. There you can browse souvenirs in the shops, dine at one of the bustling cafes or get your culture fix at the exciting historical sites and buildings.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The villa is set in the picturesque hillside, meaning spectacular views and an easy downhill walk to the beach but a slightly harder walk back.
  • The open-plan living room has raised levels, so watch out for the stairs.

Mama La Roosa is in-between the charming Greek villages of Agia Pelagia and Lygaria. The nearest sandy beach with fun water sports and a choice of friendly local tavernas, cafes and restaurants is a short 2.3km walk (or an even shorter drive) away. In the centre of Agia Pelagia, you’ll find several shops, as well as amenities including a supermarket, pharmacy and an ATM. The village also boasts a  sheltered bay – the perfect place for safe swimming and snorkelling or relaxing on the sand.

Lygaria cove is even closer, 1.9km away. There you’ll find a sand and pebble beach with more calm waters. It’s abutted by several taverns and cafes for a welcome mid-afternoon snack.

In vibrant Heraklion, the capital of Crete, there’s plenty more things to see and do. Must-see sights include the Palace of Knossos – an exciting archaeological site dating back thousands of years to the Minoan civilisation, the Venetian port – a 16th-century Koules fortress on the outskirts of the city, and the Heraklion Archaeological Museum with an extensive collection of Minoan art.

Heraklion isn’t just about ancient sites though with top-notch restaurants, boutique shops and a lively nightlife too. It’s also home one of the best markets in the Mediterranean – with traditional Greek products like olive oil, honey and herbs – as well as idyllic sandy beaches. You can swim, snorkel or take part in water sports like sea kayaking and scuba diving. Moreover, for golf lovers, there’s a modern course not far away from Heraklion, in the area of Hersonissos.

Best Suited For: All Ages

With a private swimming pool and an peaceful location within walking distance of the village and sandy beach, Mama La Roosa is the perfect villa for families with children.

This beautiful part of Crete also boasts everything from calm swimming beaches to exciting ancient sites. Kids young and old can learn about the history of the glorious Minoan civilisation in the Palace of Knossos, just outside of Heraklion. If you have a smartphone, you can download the mobile app Kids Love Knossos, a series of audio stories about Knossos so they can listen while you’re there.
There are also plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports too, or you can jump on a boat to explore the rugged coastline. For more family-friendly fun, there’s an aquarium a 15-minute’ drive west of Heraklion, alongside a labyrinth park with a maze to explore.

  • Amazing

    Posted by TF on 31/05/2018

    his place is absolutely amazing. Probably the best holiday experience we have had. Petros and Yana were fantastic hosts. 10/10 would recommend.

  • Nice House in South Crete

    Posted by MP on 31/08/2016

    We spent one week in this house and it was really amazing. The house is really nice, we liked it a lot. The service is worth a five star hotel. Yana and Petros were really helpful and friendly. We also thank them for the tips they gave us in south Crete (nice places and tavernas;-) The house is nicer than the photo. Do not hesitate.
