The villa is close to the charming resort of Agia Pelagia; this relaxed fishing village is great for families and boasts a handy selection of amenities including restaurants, tavernas and a sandy beach perfect for snorkelling. Heraklion itself is only a short car journey away and offers a wider variety of nightlife, with plenty of choice in bars and clubs.

The modern villa can sleep up to six guests across three beautiful bedrooms. On the ground floor is the spacious living accommodation comprising of an open-plan living and dining room with sliding patio doors helping to bring the beautiful outside and sunshine in! Also on this level is a fully-equipped fitted kitchen complete with all the necessary modern amenities for a more than comfortable stay. Upstairs, on the first floor, is the master double bedroom which boasts spectacular views out to sea as well as a luxury en-suite bathroom with a jacuzzi bathtub, the perfect place to soak after a long day of sightseeing! Also on this level are the further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, the gardens are as equally beautiful. The private infinity-style pool is a picture-perfect spot from which to soak up the sunshine while admiring the impressive sea views with Heraklion in the distance. The covered dining area, which is complete with a built-in barbecue, is fantastic for those who enjoy al fresco dining, the comfy sofas are the perfect spot to spend a lazy evening with a cool drink while admiring the night-time views over the bright lights of the city.
