Conveniently located in the village of Mariou, southern Crete, this modern 3-bedroom home offers an enviable list of features. 125.5 sqm of living area cover one floor with two spacious bedrooms next to a stylish open kitchen and dining area. A sliding door opens up to a covered outdoor seating area, while the stone and wood design adds a timeless quality to the villa.
Impressively large windows let in plenty of natural light, while the planted rooftop helps regulate temperatures in a cost-efficient, environmentally friendly way.
On a lower level, there is also a third, fully independent guest studio with its own entrance and porch area, which covers an additional area of ca. 31 sqm.
Villa Anthea is located in close proximity to crystal clear swimming beaches and is surrounded by traditional villages where authenticity and hospitality dominate everyday life.
The well-designed pool area is a treat. A 42 sqm infinity pool blends in with the gorgeous sea and mountain environment. As an extra touch of luxury, it also has a tanning area with lounges submerged in the water, allowing you to splash around while catching the sun.
Situated on a block of land stretching over 1,091 sqm, the property also has parking space for two cars.
There is immediate access to the local beaches, some of Greece’s best. Both the sandy beach of Damnoni and the long beach of Plakias are less than a 10-minute drive away.
For the more active, hiking is a particularly attractive option, while horse riding is also on offer. The crystal blue waters at Plakias feature a lot of water activities, such as diving and sailing.
Apart from being next to local restaurants and a minimarket in Mariou, larger supermarkets and pharmacies are also available at Plakias, just down the road.
The developer is an expert from the region, having developed a number of similar projects in southern Crete that use top quality construction materials and focus on sustainability and having a low impact on the environment. For an example of his previous work click here.
