Armeni Villa Rental Photos and Description
Two Bedrooms, Private Pool, bbq & WiFi
A short distance from the small hamlet of Agios Pantes and the village of Neo Horio, Villa Toula is a beautiful stone house where Toula's natural talents as a home-maker spill into every corner. Drawing from times being slowly consigned to history, she has created a delightfully romantic Cretan interior with the generous use of embroidered filigree linen curtains, colourful hand-made rugs and lovingly polished furniture.
In the living area, a brightly upholstered Cretan Sofa sits comfortably alongside embroidered cushion seats either side of the inset fireplace. For most of the year the French windows will be thrown open to the little furnished, shady terrace under one of the twin arches that adorn the front of the villa, with lovely garden views. Spanning this open plan area, a wide stone arch separates the high beamed ceiling of the sitting area from the kitchen where old world charm prevails, but far from being a museum piece, every modern convenience can be found amongst the hand built wood cupboards.
The lovely double bedroom has French windows opening onto the second of the covered terrace with flowers growing all around and views across olive groves and onwards to far hillsides. Across the way, in the twin bedroom, a particularly cosy atmosphere has been enhanced by a ‘ladder’ staircase leading to a false mezzanine floor (parents of small children, please note), useful for storing luggage. The two bedrooms share a white tiled shower room.
Toula’s love of nature is conspicuous in the exceptionally pretty garden, which encircles her house. Little box hedges decorate her emerald green lawns and a profusion of roses, jasmine and many other flowers spill out of the flower beds.
A covered barbecue ‘house’ sits under olive trees whilst another gives shade to a stone table and bench, a cool picnic spot by the pool. This swimming pool terrace, accessed via half a dozen steps is a further delight where the sparkling pool is surrounded by stone sun bathing terraces furnished with sunbeds. A short 5 minute drive from a choice of tavernas and just 15 minutes from a choice of sandy beaches means that it is both a peaceful retreat and a good starting point for exploring the island for couples or families.

What makes this villa unique
Superb position of the pool if you are looking for seclusion! Great taverna in Agia Pantes which does home made pizzas in the wood oven. The Village of Armeni also has a superb taverna & yet the beaches of Kalyves & Almirida are great for small children & the lovely long sandy beach of Georgiopolis is superb if you like to have a patch of sand to yourself or use the sunbeds & umbrellas that are dotted along the beach. Take your pick. Access to the National Highway is easy from Villa Toula making travelling to either east or west very easy.
