Villa Alabaster is a brand new, contemporary villa opening in April 2023 to offer guests the most luxurious, most comfortable and most memorable stay in the Falasarna area of Crete. The villa enjoys three gorgeous bedrooms, divine open-plan living spaces and sensational outside space with glorious, soul-soothing, uninterrupted sea views that mean you will never miss a moment of coastal bliss. What more could you possibly want from your self-catering stay near one of the very best beaches in all of Greece? Villa Alabaster enjoys a calm, inviting ambience and sublime interior design that invites relaxation and rejuvenation. It is the perfect pick for a spot of switch-off.
 
There is no doubt that when staying in this stunning location you will return home with hundreds of Instagram-worthy beach photos. Falasarna is part of the Natura 2000 network due to its outstanding natural beauty and its endless varieties of flora and fauna. It offers white powdery sand, crystal clear water and mind-blowing vivid sunsets that will remain in your memory for a very long time. Within easy reach is the equally stunning Elafonisi Beach, voted as one of the best five secret beaches by the BBC, and the idyllic Balos Beach with its pink sand and shallow waters. Balos is often compared to Caribbean beaches. The lively resort of Kissamos is less than twelve kilometres away and you shouldn’t miss a trip into the Venetian harbour of the Old Town of Chania, just less than sixty kilometres away.
 
Villa Alabaster is a capsule of contemporary cool that is perfect for families or friends. Its light-flooded, laid-back minimalist interiors are perfect for holidays. It comes with a cool vibe that encourages you to embrace the calm. This and the other three lovely villas in this exclusive spot blend harmoniously with the natural landscape. The ground floor is home to your open plan living space and one of your bedrooms, a gorgeous double with a comfy kingsize bed and use of a family bathroom.
 
The remaining two bedrooms are found on the first floor, dreamy nests with contemporary open wardrobes, exquisite linens and immaculate ensuite bathrooms. Guests enjoy luxury toiletries, fluffy towels, bathrobes and slippers in the bathrooms, along with trendy tiling and the best of fittings.
 
The open-plan living space enjoys a brilliantly well-equipped kitchen that the chef in your group will appreciate. Filter and espresso coffee machines are provided for your early morning cup of coffee. The living area enjoys comfy contemporary sofas and a giant smart television should you want to cosy up with Netflix. The calm, natural colour palette throughout ensures that Villa Alabaster enjoys a serene ambience.
 
Though the interiors are beautiful, the real magic at Villa Alabaster happens on the terrace. With spectacular sea views that will entice your gaze and lift your heart, you cannot help but relax on the quality outdoor furnishings. The swimming pool boasts a unique design and next to it is a sunken lounge area with a fireplace, the perfect spot to enjoy pre-dinner drinks while mesmerised by the sunsets. There is a fabulous alfresco dining area under a pergola and a barbecue where your barbecue masters can cook up a storm. The glorious blue scenery will tranquillize your soul and fill you with a passion to explore this wonderful island.

Villa Alabaster enjoys a superb location with uninterrupted sea views in the Falasarna area of Crete. The main attractions of Falasarna are its superb sandy beaches, its turquoise crystal clear sea and its ancient harbour. With its fabulous array of flora and fauna varieties, the enchanting Falasarna promises wonderful paradise beaches with glistening white sand and crystal clear water. There are several companies offering watersports including Falasarna Activities which offers wakeboard and jet ski tuition. At the northern end of the beach, there are ruins of the ancient Greco-Roman city of Falasarna. Falasarna actually consists of five beaches with the main beach called Pachia Ammos. Livadi is another of the long beaches, a good choice for snorkelling. Livadi is surrounded by important wetlands with ponds and a wonderful array of bird life.
 
Like Falasarna, Elafonisi and Balos enjoy being on the list of the world’s top beaches. They are definitely must-visits. Elafonisi is connected by a sand bar to an island nature reserve with pink sands, wildflowers and unusual rock formations. There is no shade on the island but there are delightful little coves and pockets of sandy beach. It is home to more than one hundred rare plants including summer sea daffodils and winter-flowering Androcymbium rechingeri. You may see rare loggerhead sea turtles and you will definitely enjoy picture-perfect sunsets that will stay in your memory for a very long time. Due to its natural beauty, Elafonisi is often featured on postcards and posters. On the Gramvousa peninsula, in the protected ‘NATURA’ area of Balos Bay, Balos’ glistening white sand, rare species of flora and fauna and turquoise sea are incredible. It is a brilliant beach with idyllic scenery and shallow water that will meet every expectation to the fullest. Beyond the rocks at the boundaries of the lagoon, the water is deeper and ideal for snorkelling. Eleonora falcons, shags and cormorants nest in the caves and the area is a shelter for protected monk seal and loggerhead sea turtles. Balos can be reached by car or you can take a boat trip to the beach from Kissamos. North of Balos, in Cape Korykon, there are remains of the small Roman town of Agnio including the temple of Apollo and the picturesque chapel of Agios Sostis.
 
The bustling tourist resort of Kissamos sits on the edge of the Gramvousa peninsula and is within easy reach of the villa. Kissamos is also known as Kastelli Kissamou in reference to the former Venetian fortress that used to dominate the town. Kissamos boasts many traditional tavernas, bars and shops as well as stunning beaches. Surrounding the town are fertile olive groves and vineyards. The main beach is Mavros Molos which is sprinkled liberally with trees, sunbeds and parasols. The Archaeological Museum of Kissamos is located on the main square, Stratigou Tzanakaki, boasting an impressive collection of local discoveries from a wide range of historical eras. A little further north from the main port of Kissamos is the quaint, colourful Old Port of Kastelli Kissamou which is brimming with brightly coloured fishing boats, a photographer’s dream.
 
Platanias sits a little further along the coast, a large tourist resort which boasts electric bars and nightclubs. If you are looking for a late night out, it is probably the best place to head.  Platanias is followed by the lively Agia Marina where you will find a gorgeous beach, glorious sunsets and excellent feasts at its many restaurants.

Roughly sixty kilometres from the villa and not to be missed is the charming and picturesque Old Town of Chania. Its atmospheric 14th-century Venetian harbour, old port, narrow, cobbled shopping streets, colourful bougainvillaea and waterfront and rooftop restaurants make this a top-notch evening out. The views from the harbour are breathtaking, especially at sunset with the Venetian lighthouse in the background.
 
Samaria Gorge is the longest gorge in Europe at sixteen kilometres which takes roughly six hours. For a shorter hike, you can drive to Chora Sfakion and take a boat to Agia Roumeli and walk a few kilometres at the end of the gorge. The Imbros Gorge is also very beautiful and takes approximately two hours. You can combine this walk with swimming at Fragokastelo Beach.

Villa Alabaster is a great holiday pick for a family holiday. With three bedrooms, a gorgeous open-plan living space, a brilliant terrace, a lovely pool and a Falasarna location, it is a great choice. The area around Falasarna is a protected nature reserve. Children enjoy visiting the ruins of the ancient city of Falasarna at the northern end of the beach. They will see the remains of the city walls and an acropolis, ancient tombs and a stone throne which was dedicated to the God of the Sea, Poseidon.
 
Nearby, you can visit Kissamos which offers a wide range of family entertainment. There are several surf schools including Kalo Surf and a number of opportunities to learn to stand-up paddleboard on the beach. There are many boat trips, either to Balos or just to enjoy swimming and snorkelling in the clear blue water. Families also love the stunning Elafonisi Beach.
 
The well-known Cave of Agia Sophia near Kissamos is an astonishing sight, full of dramatic, twisted stalagmites and stalactites. The Sirikari Gorge that runs from the village of Sirikari down to Polyrrinia can be explored on a three-hour walk, where you will see a wealth of beautiful plants and as well as wild animals. Another gorge, the Keramari Gorge is the entrance to the traditional village of Milia, near Kissamos. Active children enjoy mountain biking or hiking in some of the gorges or the eroded hills of Komolithi.
 
Chania Town is not only beautiful but it offers some excellent entertainment for families. Minoan’s World of 3D Museum and 9D Cinema is an immersive cinema where you can learn about the Minoan history while enjoying 11 effects such as earthquakes, snow and much more. The movie stars Zeus as a baby and as a God, abductions, flying too close to the sun and an eruption of the volcano in Santorini causing a devastating tsunami that ended the Minoan era. Aqua Creta Limnoupolis is a fun water park close to Chania. It offers extreme adventure with impressive water slides including two freefall slides, a black hole, a triple twist, a rainbow multi-slide and two giant slides. It also boasts a lazy river, a kid’s pool and an artificial island.
 
The cuisine in Crete is delicious and it is very easy to eat out with children. You should definitely stop at a Cretan bakery for biscuits and pastries. Loukoumades are honey-drenched doughnuts that children absolutely adore!
