VILLA METAPOTHIA, DELUXE VILLA WITH POOL

Gavalochori Villa Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms (all with en-suites) sleeps 12

Villa Metapothia stands on a quiet hillside overlooking the village of Gavalohori in prime position to enjoy magnificent vistas towards Crete’s distant White Mountains and sea views down the green and wooded valley to nearby Souda Bay.

Villa Metapothia is extremely well appointed, furnished and equipped down to minute detail. On the upper two floors, all four bedrooms have the bonus of air-conditioning and en-suite's as well as their own individual terraces, with patio furniture and sea or mountain views. The master bedroom has a double bed and an en-suite WC and wash hand basin with a hydro massage bath.

At pool level and with their own entrance doors are two further spacious twin bedrooms, without air conditioning, but both with en-suite shower rooms. One has its own covered terrace overlooking the barbecue area, whilst the other faces towards the entrance driveway and is furnished with sofa beds as a day room, ideal perhaps for teenagers needing their own space!

With soft ochre walls : Below a neat ensemble of terracotta tiled roofs, Villa Metapothia stands on a quiet hillside overlooking the village of Gavalohori in prime position to enjoy magnificent vistas towards Crete’s distant White Mountains and sea views down the green and wooded valley to nearby Souda Bay.

At first floor level the main entrance leads into the extensive open plan living area. To one side, a comfortable sitting room has sofas and an easy chair grouped around a large fireplace set in an attractive wall of local stone, plus a massive picture window to make the most of the views down the valley.

At the far end of the living area: A breakfast bar separates the superb fitted kitchen, designed by Diane rather than Yiannis, with an abundance of storage cupboards and work surfaces, plus all mod cons, including eye level oven, ceramic hob, large fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave and espresso coffee machine. To the rear of the kitchen is a guest WC and wash hand basin and also a washing machine.

The formal dining room, set between the kitchen and sitting area, has its own large picture window with views over the village to the mountains as well as a useful little bar to one side, complete with a CD HiFi system. Doors from here and the kitchen, open onto a covered terrace, with a large marble topped patio table for informal meals and from where steps lead down to the beautiful 9m x 5m pool, with a Jacuzzi in one corner, plus adjoining children’s pool

The lawned gardens : Of the property are surrounded by high stone walls and terraced down the hillside. There’s a lovely shady olive tree in one corner, whilst in a sheltered spot to the far side of the villa is a purpose built barbecue area with a huge table.

In the lounge there is a satellite TV complete with a choice of DVD and VCR.

Car: recommended

In the centre of the scenic Apokoronou Peninsula, 2 km inland from Almirida and at the end of a green and wooded valley leading down to the sea, the beguiling little village of Gavalohori has enjoyed something of a renaissance over the past few years. This is in part thanks to a woman's co-operative where they make and sell local handicrafts such as lace and silk products. Many of the houses have been renovated in traditional fashion and the village has a pleasant air of both rural charm and prosperity. Dotted around the small square in the centre of the village are 3 local cafenions where the village males sip coffee and talk politics whilst desultorily twirling worry beads. After just a few days in the village you'll find it's easy to imagine owning your own little house here and blending into the local lifestyle, whilst your good wife tries her hand at lace making! The village also has a bakery, 3 small mini-markets and a couple of tavernas.
