The results are stunning. 

Villas sets on a pedestrian walk in front of a rocky, great for privacy beach (closest pebble, sandy beach is 350m away), and offers leisure lounge areas by the pool and the beach front for peace and relaxation under the hot summer sun.

The Houses offer sun loungers, hammocks, swings, foosball, washing machine and dryer, bicycles, puzzles, games, even telescopes to enjoy the planets and moon at night time.

In addition, owners will be glad to share their best-kept secrets about nearby hidden-treasure beaches, landscapes, culture, best restaurants & taverns, best shops, best walking paths and gorges, and bicycle ride paths, as well as other attractions that may be of interest.

Moonlight Villas is located only a few minutes’ walk from a local pebble beach, traditional bakery, clinic, coffee shops, patisserie, super markets, bars, restaurants, and pharmacy.

Koutsouras Village is still a very quiet place and around the village there are some beaches with coarse black sand and calm waters. The main organized beach (500m walk from Moonlight Villas and the closest one) is located west of the village, in front of the old settlement.  Along the beach there are some tamarisk trees, where you can find some shade and relax too. If you want an even more secluded beach, a good solution is a small beach with pebbles next to the harbor of the village, about 1.5km on the west, just next to the small wood of Apiganias. In addition, you will find a very nice beach 1km east of Koutsouras, which is called Koutsourelis beach. Koutsourelis is sandy and is suitable for kids.

Great things to do around, just 2 km away is the seaside village of Makrigialos and other traditional Cretan mountain villages, hiking opportunities include the Butterfly gorge, Pefki gorge and the gorge of the dead in Zakros, wind surfing and other sports are offered nearby too.

Important note: When individual villas are rented separately and there are other occupants at the time of rental, all outdoor facilities are shared.
