VILLA IN GREECE

Gonia Villa Rental Photos and Description

This beautiful stone villa in Greece will steal your heart away; from arches stretching over the living areas to a flagstone-bordered pool, this villa rental in Greece looks like an extension of the mountain it rests on. Luxuriate in the feeling of rural seclusion, explore the local village below, go hiking, or scout for "the perfect beach." This Greece rental villa in the mountains will make you feel as if you've lived on the island for generations.

Built into a steep hillside, this restored stone house enjoys sweeping views over the White Mountains and the Askifou Plateau. Resembling a large converted barn, the house has a spacious multi-level common area, making it ideal for a group. Two flights of stone steps lead down to a large terrace paved with flagstones and the private swimming pool (36m2) and barbecue area. The pool is open from May 15 to the end of October and has an outdoor shower and WC, along with a washing machine. Scattered on the hillsides around the house, there are a number of unoccupied village dwellings. The local property representative will meet you at a prearranged place and guide you to the villa. At that point (or, if your arrival time is late, the following day), the representative will answer any questions and introduce you to the spectacular island of Crete. A representative will also remain available on a 24-hour help line for any further assistance you might need.

(200 m2) Ground Floor: Via the main terrace, the entrance leads into a spacious living/dining area with stone fireplace, satellite TV, and two built-in sofa beds each suitable for one child. From here, a few steps lead to a bedroom with wrought iron 130 cm large single bed, corner Jacuzzi tub, and separate ensuite (screened off) WC. Returning to the living area, a wooden staircase leads up to a second bedroom with a 130 cm large single bed, this one with ensuite bathroom (shower). At the opposite end of the living area there is a charming small kitchen with a stable door leading out to the terrace. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher and an old stone oven. A wooden staircase leads to the upper floors. First floor: There is a large bedroom with a 130 cm large single wrought iron bed. Above the bedroom there is a spacious seating area with a 130 cm sofa bed suitable for one. Beyond this, additional steps lead up to the gallery. Gallery: This large open room has a second kitchen with a range, refrigerator/freezer, and dining area with a satellite TV. This area opens onto a large terrace. There is also an antique tub and separate WC. Above the tub in an open loft there is a large gallery bedroom with four-poster 170 cm large queen-size bed.

Map

This villa is located on a steep hillside, enjoying a very out-of-the-way location perfect for hikers or anyone looking for that truly "authentic" experience. The village of Askifou, however, is nearby-- it has a taverna and a small grocery store. As it is a very rural location (about half an hour down hill on a windy road to the highway), this is a great location for hiking. The main occupation of most locals is sheep or goat farming, although there are also many cheese dairies. Beyond that, a drive down the mountain will take you to Sfakia and Georgioupolis. Sfakia is located in the southwest of Crete, built at the point where the Iligas gorge joins the sea. On the water you'll find a pebble beach with crystal clear waters. This area is very far removed from tourism and offers a very authentic taste of island life. Georgioupolis, alternately, lies on the northern coast of Crete, a coaster village on the bay of Almiros. The village has a police station, a pharmacy, banking services, restaurants, bakeries, tavernas, and a travel bureau. This village is only a little more "touristed" than Sfakia, and most of the inhabitants are mainly concerned with stock breeding, farming, and fishing. In Georgioupolis you will also be able to find various forms of transportation to see nearby sights, including boats to surrounding beaches, and excursions to springs and waterfalls. Georgioupolis: 20 km Sfakia: 18 km Ammoudari: 1.5 km
