Overview

Lovely stone villa. Great views and nice private pool. Within walking distance of tavernas at Kokkino Chorio and Plaka.

If you're looking for an authentic, rustic Greek holiday well away from the overcrowded touristic places in Crete, then Villa Afrati would make a fantastic choice.

Villa Afrati is a superb traditional 3 bedroom villa located in the outskirts of Kokkino Chorio village, just 4km away from the amazing sandy beaches of Almyrida and Kalyves and 27.5km from the picturesque town of Chania, Crete.

The villa sets at a very idyllic point, at a top of a hill, with stunning distant sea views over Souda Bay, White Mountains and spectacular sunsets, thus imparting you a sense of freedom and calmness. 

The two-storey villa is beautifully decorated and presented throughout, with rustic wood and wrought iron furniture and natural stone and terracota floors creating an impressive blend of old and new.

On the ground floor there is a split-level living area with a cosy country fireplace and wall-hung TV plus stone steps ascending to a stylish, well-equipped kitchen-diner.

One of the beautiful twin bedrooms and a bathroom are on the ground floor, with two further bedrooms each one with its own bathroom with shower massage, upstairs.

Stepping through doors from the kitchen-diner brings you to a delightful raised veranda, where further steps descend to the magnificent poolside terrace - a fantastic retreat for relaxing, reading a book, enjoying the superb Cretan sun.

At one side is a beautiful pergola-roofed barbecue terrace, complete with a country-style bench table, offering idyllic sunset views. Lawned gardens, planted with silvery olive trees, sit below the pool, providing even further space to relax and soak up the beauty and serenity all around. 

This is your new home ...!
