Falasarna is legendary for its "wide-openness" and its endless stretch of beach, of sand, of alcoves, of enough sea-lapped frontage to allow you to find the part that suits you best, that feels a million miles from the fray. You will be able to enjoy all of that and be above it all!
After the village of Platanos has disappeared and the vistas of the sea and expanses of mariners' dreams beyond Crete seem to have disappeared, you will round a bend in the road and there, the vision of two well-chiseled stone villas makes you wonder "who owns that?". Well this is your villa now, Falasarna Villas.
There are two identical stone villas of 150 m2 each, accommodating 6 persons each, but with individual access and complete privacy. Each villa has a private large (50m2) pool, a terrace and they both have stunning views over Falasarna bay and out to sea, the truly-cretan hills to the front and south and to an unparalleled sunset at this westernmost point on Crete.
Each villa has three levels with one large living room with a fireplace and fully-equipped kitchen on the second level, two bedrooms on the third level and one bedroom and WC for visitors on the first level. Each bedroom has wooden floors, built-in closets and its own bathroom.
This is a well done thing. Solid wood front door leads into the country-house-rustic modern living room, step up to the dining and well-equipped kitchen area and survey the possibilities for your own inspired meals and those breakfasts to launch the days to come.
A nice touch is a trunk filled with various Cretan wines which you pay for what you consume - they are a good selection and introduction to what is happening in wines on the island of Crete.
The three neat and functional bedrooms (with king size 1.80 x 2.00 m Coco-Mat Beds) all have their own private bathroom - you can shower and return for a snooze in the morning if persuaded to do so - without even having left the room!
Since 2012, a beautiful room in each Falassarna Villa has been added where you can enjoy sauna and massage in complete privacy. You can now relax in the hands of physical therapist and beautician specialists.
