Villa Arialkis

Beach villa with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and private pool in Kondomari, Crete

From €1,750 per week

For those who will settle for nothing less than absolute beauty, a villa that offers panoramic luxury with heated infinity pool, sun deck, gym, bbq patio and garden, located in the hub of everything.

Overview

Towering over lush olive groves, Villa ARIALKίS not only offers all the comforts for the most discerning visitor, but also an unparalleled environment with majestic views stretching from the Cretan sea to the White Mountains. We have, therefore, coined our villa "ARIALKίS" from Greek roots, which mean the power of the earth and sea. A befitting name, as the picturesque landscape and the azure of the sea dynamically burst forth to clash in contrast with the white-washed villages and the snow-capped mountains in the distance.

The villa boasts a privileged location amongst other beautiful stone-built villas in a neighborhood reminiscent of a "paradise village" (as the residents refer to their surroundings).

Guests pull into their private driveway with immediate ground-floor access to a self contained 25 square meter guesthouse offered as a fourth bedroom. It has a private entrance and boasts toilet/shower and mini kitchen that comfortably accommodates two extra guests if the booking exceeds the number of 6 visitors in the main villa extending above.

The main spaces are accessible via a stone walkway/ramp past the infinity pool that meshes with the azure of the sea and the distant mountains and cascades into a children's pool. Panoramic views are especially enjoyed from the spacious and fully furnished pergola barbeque.

The harmony of the lawn, the garden and trees with their hammocks adjacent to the large sun deck of the pool are sure to put an anticipating smile on any guest's face. The infinity pool extends just two and a half meters from the living room of the villa, behind which there is even a gravel pit with a pool-up bar for the athletic types for an ideal body-weight work out, while there is also a fully equipped free-weight gym in the garage space.

On entering the ground floor, one is welcomed by an open space where stone and wood mesh in the finest of taste, accommodating a fully equipped kitchen, a sitting room with fireplace and a library/study. Handmade, wood crafted furniture add to the cozy ambience of tradition and comfort. The study/library has a wood-crafted desk from which one can work or write poetry inspired by the panoramic view through the window. Furnished with comfortable sofa bed and clothes cabinet, it also acts as a third bedroom by drawing the thick curtain to partition it from the sitting room.

Once seated on the comfortable, large sofa of the sitting room, one takes in the most majestic view stretching from the pool to the sea and the mountains. The proximity of the infinity pool from the lounge means that parents can be enjoying a beverage indoors with visual contact of the children plunging about.

On the same floor, there is a WC with shower and a spacious built-in closet along the hallway.

A wood-built staircase leads to the upper floor with the two bedrooms and a bathroom with a laundry machine.

The master bedroom has a king size bed and TV, and the other bedroom is furnished with a single sofa bed and a bunk bed. Both rooms offer plenty of built-in wardrobe closet space.

Accessible from both bedrooms, lies a terrace with coffee table and chairs for yet another panoramic view to the sea and the most spectacular sunsets.

We have placed such emphasis on the variety of scenery, that beautiful views can be enjoyed literally from every window of the house that encompasses guests in cozy, rustic-style luxury. Next to the infinity pool lies a spacious barbeque patio lounge under a pergola. Fully furnished for coffee and meals, it promises wonderful moments and sunsets that will take your breath away. Maleme beach is only a 5-minute drive or 20 minute walk away, whilst trails through patches of forest, orange and olive groves abound and there are clusters of traditional homes and narrow village paths begging to be explored. The cosmopolitan town/village of Platanias is only a 7-minute drive from the property.

However, be warned: The amenities of ARIALKiS, with its spectacular pool, sun deck, fully equipped free-weight gym, barbeque patio and tree-laden garden with its picnic lawn, hammocks and vegetable garden for your fresh salads, make it difficult to tear oneself from the villa; for it is, indeed, a microcosm of comfort, action and beauty in itself!

Panagiotis

Private Owner From Platanias, Greece Member since Oct 2021

Born and raised in Chania, after an Odyssey abroad, I returned to my birthplace, which I have always considered to be one of the most beautiful "playgrounds" for anyone who possesses the virility and the imagination to enjoy it to its full potential. With interests varying from extreme sports to art, music and writing, I have always been hard pressed for choices of what activity to tackle first on just about every morning I wake in the birthplace of European civilization. All of the above inspired me to build the ideal venue for all these activities encapsulated in a dreamy environment, reminiscent of the timelessness of Crete. My only grievance is that there are not enough hours in a day to do the things I love in this microcosm of the best that life has to offer to anyone who feels alive to his fingertips. What's more, I greatly enjoy sharing all this enthusiasm with my guests by suggesting the right places to make their most out of their visit.
