THE TIMES UK - The 20 best villas with big pools - Caroline Hendrie -

Want to do some real swimming? We find the best pools in the Mediterrean where size really does seem to matter..

1 - Villa Neptune, Crete

The ultimate pool with a view is L-shaped and has an infinity edge that lets you swim and see the rocky coastline in one direction, beaches in another. Step through the patio doors and you have only to take a stride before you get into your stroke, with 19m to plough up and down. The modern villa, which has three bedrooms and sleeps seven (the master bedroom has fabulous sea views), is painted in earthy colours to blend into the rugged landscape.......MORE INFO : = Owners Website -........

Villa Neptune - Keramoti bay - west Crete: The villa is located in the seaside village of Livadia, Keramoti bay, Innahorion, in the southwestern part of Crete, at a distance of 72 km from Chania and 31 km from Kissamos. The villa can be accessed through a 4 km long road that is connected to the regional provincial road. The village is located in the middle of the European hiking path E4– a seaside route of exceptional natural beauty- that starts at the village of Kambos and continues through the villages of Keramoti, Livadia, Chryssoskalitissa and Elafonisi. The route is typical of the rugged beauty of Crete with amazing changes of the scenery between olive and locust trees and sea-beaten rocks of black and red volcanic lava.

Villa Neptune - Elafonisi - West Crete: One of the most exotic gifts of nature to Crete…Lacy beaches, a forest of age-old cedars, thin white sand made of sea shells, long shallow stretches of sea with turquoise waters where you can wade to, an islet with dunes and lilies and around it a handful of rocks in shallow waters with emerald- coloured sand. Few images of Crete can be compared to the view just before the last turning of the road to Elafonisi ... In the village of Livadia, buying food is still done in the traditional way – you may buy fish from the fishermen in the small harbour, vegetables, dairy products and meat from the farmers, but you will also find three small taverns. There is a mini-market in the village of Kefali and larger supermarkets in the villages of Platanos and Kissamos. A gas station is located about 11 km away in the village of Elos.

Note:: The family who cleans the villa, speaks English and can cook for the tenants of the villa a great variety of traditional Cretan dishes. The tenants may buy fresh fish from Vasilis, the young man who cleans the pool but also has a fishing boat and goes fishing regularly. If you wish, you may ask him to take you fishing with him or you may charter his boat for a boating trip to Elafonisi, Paleohora or Falasarna. The sea is only 60 m away from the villa but there are also many secluded beaches about 100 m away as well as the exquisite beach of Elafonisi at a distance of about 15-20 min by car. A basketball and a volleyball field are available at a distance of about 2500 m from the villa. All rooms are air-conditioned (hot or cold, depending on the season). MORE INFO

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tout d'abord, cet endroit est magnifique.

Félicitation à l'architecte qui a pensé cette villa et l'a si bien intégrée dans le paysage.

Pour les gens qui comme nous recherchent la tranquillité, et l'isolement, l'endroit était parfait.

Le paysage autour de la villa est magnifique : on a vraiment l'impression d'être seul au monde.

La villa est très bien équipée, très agréable à vivre et extrêmement bien conçue : trois chambres avec chacune une salle de bain, l'intimité de chacun est préservée... en cas de besoins.

Les terrasses et pontons sont très joliment meublés et offrent vraiment l'illusion d'être sur l'eau comme sur le pont d'un bateau.

La piscine est très agréable et elle parfait encore l'image de la villa.

A une douzaine de kilomètres, la magnifique plage d'Elafonisi... féérique.

Le seul inconvénient lorsqu'on est isolé : il faut prendre la voiture pour faire deux trois emplettes... ceci dit, les propriétaires vous proposent de fournir l'essentiel pour votre arrivée.

Nous voudrions remercier une fois encore Gregory qui nous a bien aidé pour tout... surtout lorsque nous avons crevé un pneu de notre voiture... il a visiblement des solutions à tous les problèmes...

Jamais très loin mais jamais envahissant, c'est un personnage discret et indispensable.

Nous conseillons aux voyageurs qui louent une voiture de privilégier les 4 x 4... En effet, la partie du chemin non goudronnée n'est pas facile avec une voiture normale...

Pour le reste, ça n'a été que du bonheur

Amazing villa, total luxury

  • 5 of 5

We wish we could have stayed longer! The villa is beautifully designed and very luxurious. The setting is simply stunning with total seclusion, peace and quiet. Everything was well attended to, the owner and caretaker were very responsive to any questions we had. The best villa we have rented and we will be returning!

Villa Neptune - April 2014

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Villa Neptune. The setting is wonderful - remote with beautiful views. Natasha, Gregory and Irene were all extremely friendly and helpful. The children loved the pool and the views sitting on the patio with uninterrupted views of the sea and coast are wonderful. Do visit Yannis's taverna in Livadia and it is also worth treating yourself to some of his meals which he will bring to the villa. Elafonisi and Balos Beaches are truly beautiful. It is worth doing your main shop in Kissamos on your way to the villa. This is an incredibly beautiful and unspoilt area of Crete and we loved every minute of our week. Thank you, we will be back!

Ett fntastiskt fint boende

  • 5 of 5

Först och främst vill vi tacka Grigoris som välkomnade oss och erbjöd oss en god service under hela vistelsen. Resan från flygplatsen till villan var något lång men vi passade på att njuta av den vackra kretanska miljön på vägen. Vårt boende höll högsta klass och översteg hela familjens förventningar. Arkitekturen, utsikten och miljön i helhet är något vi svårt kommer att glömma. Något jag varmt rekomenderar är att besöka de fantastiskt vackra stränderna kring elafonisi. Att börja dagen med en cykeltur och därefter svalka sig i polen är något jag gjorde dagligen. När jag sitter här hemma i vintermörkret och tänker på den fantastiska semestern längtar jag tillbaka, jag ser redan nu fram emot nästkommande sommar.

Villa Neptun-Wir kommen wieder!

  • 5 of 5

Es hat uns heuer im Sommer (August 2012) in der Villa Neptun so gut gefallen, dass wir fuer nächstes Jahr schon wieder gebucht haben . Das exzellent ausgestattete Haus , die gute Versorgung und vor allem die einzigartige Lage und Aussicht haben uns überwältigt. Unsere ursprünglichen Bedenken wegen der wirtschaftlichen Lage Griechenlands waren völlig unbegründet. Alles war bestens!

Wir freuen uns schon jetzt auf unseren nächsten Urlaub in der Villa Neptun/Livadia im Sommer 2013.

Astonishing luxurious villa in best part of Crete

  • 5 of 5

During the early summer of 2012, form July 7 to 14, we stayed in villa Neptune, in Livadia with our three teenage children. The villa itself was marvelous and well-cared for, situated on a rock (or small cape) rising out of the sea. We had a stunning view of the coastline, the village of Livadia and surrounding hills from the terrace and out of the pool. Everything in the villa was arranged to make us feel comfortable and at home, leaving us the option to cook (or barbeque) instead of eating out. The villa was taken care of by Gregory, who was highly reliable and helpful. Our expectations based on the description and pictures were easily outdone. Despite what some of us might think because of the economic situation in Greece, we had un-interrupted access to electricity, internet, water (hot and cold). We had lunch and dinner in various places in the neighborhood or returning from the beach at Elafonisi. Without exception, we felt welcome guests and everyone we met was helpful and seemed to appreciate our visit. We shopped for regular groceries in Kissamos (about 30 km’s away, 50 min's), where we also met locals who despite their economic worries showed us their Greek hospitality. To get there and around one definitely needs a car and GPS. The beautiful beaches of Elafonisi are about 25 min's away, some of the mini-markets and taverna's may take a 20 min drive There is also a very nice local restarant in Livadia, that is said to even deliver to the villa. We will certainly return in the near future and highly recommend this part of Crete and villa Neptune to anyone interested to spend a unique vacation in relative luxury.

Amazing villa on an amazing island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with a group of friends at the Neptune Villa for a week in June. The villa was fantastic - even better than the photos! We were a group of 6 so the 3 bedrooms worked out perfectly. It is very isolated so we spent 3 days just at the villa hanging out the pool and grilling which was fun but you shouldn't expect to see a lot of Crete from the villa. We went into Chania one night, hiked the Samaria Gorge one day, and went to Elafonisi beach one day. The tavern in Livadia owned by Giannis is excellent and he will deliver whatever meals you'd like at the villa. Also, his girlfriend will come over for poolside manicures/pedicures. The caretaker of the villa - Mr Alberto - was extremely helpful. You can text him and he'll bring you anything you'd like from the store although you will need to shop in Chania or Kissimos before heading down to the villa. Excellent customer service. We all loved the villa and would highly recommend it.

Crete: The Island of many small paradises in the summer shows visitors two contrasting faces, just like the ancient Roman god Janus. On the north coast, four large cities, hotels of unbelievable luxury and swarms of happy tourists bear witness to a thriving tourist industry. Here is the glow of the most famous part of Crete. Just a few kilometres away lies the other part of Crete, the still unexplored part of the island in the southwest. Numerous hidden beaches, warm embraces of palm and banana trees, rivers that spring from gorges of unprecedented beauty flowing into idyllic bays and nearby villages that seem forgotten by time and man, unknown monasteries and undiscovered vestiges of ancient civilisations make up the scenery of this land. In the summer breeze, the traditional villages, the forgotten plateaus, the warm, lee and dreamy beaches bring paradise a little closer. The villa is located on the western coast of the island of Crete at a distance of 70 meters from the sea.

Other Activities: swimming, walking, basketball, boating, fishing.water skiing,tennis
