Villa Overview

As you arrive at Villa Akri you’re greeted by its charming yet modest appearance. A single-storey appears out of the craggy rocks creating the entrance to this modern and stylish villa. But like a Cretan iceberg, there’s much more beneath the surface. Tucked away behind the cliff face sits a large sprawling property with two further floors which gently slope down towards the rugged landscape beneath.

Situated just outside the secluded and unspoilt area of Kokkino Chorio, this idyllic setting will make you feel as if you’re on your own private island. If you’re looking for an undisturbed getaway like no other, then round up your nearest and dearest as Villa Akri has it all.

Beautifully built and stylishly decorated Villa Akri really is one of a kind. Set on a Cretan cliff edge it boasts stunning sea views of the nearby Souda Bay. Split across multiple meticulously designed levels, you’ll find yourself immersed in the ultimate sense of luxury.

Enter the hallway and you’ll feel as if you never left the outside. The clever design and use of glass allow an abundance of light to pour in. And there’s no escaping those views! You’ll be sure to get a flood of Vitamin Sea, too.

Make your way across the hallway and you’ll find two of the four bedrooms. The combination of exposed stone walls and sharp wood furnishings adds to the elegance that oozes from every inch of this property. In the comfort of your secluded space, which comes with customisable mood lighting, you’ll feel as if you’re floating away with the waves. Each bedroom has a sleek, crisp ensuite and private balcony, allowing extra seclusion. Perfect for those looking to enjoy some alone time!

Back out to the landing, the Perspex glass staircase curves down towards your main living area which is furnished with a large leather corner sofa and chic dining table. The fabulously vibrant pieces of art and individual light fittings add a dash of colour and character to the minimalist space.

Round the corner, you’ll find the plush, white Italian kitchen fitted with gorgeous granite worktops and all the mod cons you need to cater for all. The breakfast bar comes with a dual-zone wine cooler (perfect for enjoying a cool and crisp glass or two!). The stunningly spherical crystal chandelier is definitely the focal point of this room.

On the lower level, you’ll find the further two twin bedrooms. Split across two levels, the four bedrooms make Villa Akri a go-to location for two families travelling together.

If you can tempt yourself away from the paradise outside then there is a breakout area on the lower ground level which comes with gym equipment, a large flat screen TV and games console.

Now you’re acquainted with the interior, it’s time to introduce the best place to revel in the tranquillity… the terrace. There’ll be no fighting over the best seat in the house as Villa Akri has them all. Swim to the edge of the infinity pool and watch how the water greets the waves of the Ionian Sea. A short walk beyond the pool, you’ll be able to recline on one of the sunloungers laid out on the overhanging terrace.

As the evenings draw close, the covered terrace is the ultimate place to enjoy al fresco dining with all the family. The built-in charcoal barbecue is the perfect place to grill some apáki – a pork dish where meat is marinated in strong Cretan wine vinegar, aromatic herbs and spices. A local delicacy which\’ll most definitely excite those taste buds. Be sure to have your camera ready as you’ll want to capture the sun as it sets over the distant rolling hills. A fittingly flawless backdrop.

Once palates are cleansed and bellies are full, take a few steps to reach the higher vantage point of the roof terrace. Sit back and sip on something sweet and enjoy a bird’s eye view over the cliff’s edge and local village life. A great place to keep score as the children will undoubtedly be drawn to the football table and table tennis on the next terrace down. Once the little ones are tucked in, it’s time to grab something cold from the wine cooler and indulge in the ultimate sense of luxury as you submerge yourself into the property’s built-in hot tub.

When you’re ready to explore, take a 40-minute coastal cruise west and you’ll find the unique, picturesque city of Chania. Famous for its Venetian Harbour, old port, narrow streets lined with boutique shops and waterfront restaurants, you’ll be submerged into the Greek authenticity in no time. Don’t fancy going further afield? The resort of Plaka can be found within a short drive, which hosts a small, serene square filled with tavernas, restaurants and shops.

Meaning ‘edge’ in Greek, Akri sure lives up to its name. A truly tranquil getaway for all the family, Villa Akri will leave you at the edge of your seat eager for more!
