This luxury stone-built villa is situated on a secluded location, just outside the quiet village of Mardati, near the lively town of Agios Nikolaos and about a 40 minutes drive from Heraklion airport.
Villa Mirabella is surrounded by a large plot (approx. 6.000 sqm) with olive trees, several terraces and an impressive private swimming pool (11 x 5,5 m) with beautiful panoramic views, both from the villa and the pool, over the valley to Agios Nikolaos, the Gulf of Mirabello and the Aegean Sea. Very often you can see the cruise ships that visit the island arriving from afar.
The villa itself has a total area of approximately 200 sqm (including a lower level of 60 sqm) and features a large, elevated open-plan living room with fireplace and a luxurious kitchen with all appliances. The living room has an imposing round facade towards the sea view and an open wooden roof construction that creates a lot of atmosphere.
Villa Mirabella currently has two large (double) bedrooms with box-spring mattresses and A/C units. The bathroom is spacious, with a bath, shower, double sink and toilet, in a light marble colour. There is ample storage space in the built-in cupboards.
In the lower level under the elevated living area, one or two extra bedrooms and a second bathroom can easily be realised under the existing permit. Connection points for utilities are already in place.
Heating is provided by infrared heating panels, which are durable and economical in use, and by means of the fireplace in the living room.
In and around the villa, which is built in a traditional style with maintenance-free natural stone facades, you will have complete privacy and comfort.
The roof was completely replaced and insulated in 2019. The kitchen was renovated in 2021 and equipped with new appliances (washing machine, dishwasher, fridge / freezer, ceramic hob and oven). In 2022, the pool was treated and repainted while all marble floors inside the villa got polished and stain protected. The villa is equipped with aluminium window frames with double glazing.
There is a wonderful relaxed atmosphere around Villa Mirabella, a sense of escapism. The bells of the sheep herds grazing in the valley in spring and the singing from the church of Mardati on Greek-Orthodox holidays will be your only distractions. Living in Greece as you always imagined it to be!
Meanwhile, Mardati is just a 5 minutes drive (3 km) from the famous pittoresque town of Agios Nikolaos, with its landmark, Lake Vouliasmeni, right in the heart of the city. There you will find all amenities and many favourable spots to enjoy. Villa Mirabella is a perfect starting point to explore the whole region of Lassithi and to visit other popular places like Elounda, Spinalonga and Ierapetra. Due to its privileged location, Villa Mirabella is also an excellent choice if you are looking to combine own use with additional income from renting out the villa.
