Villa Thalassa is a luxurious villa overlooking the bay of Akrotiri-Chania. Designed by one who loves the sea, three of the four master bedrooms, and both living rooms, offer guests breathtaking panoramic views out over the turquoise bay. The villa can comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests in four double bedrooms and two comfortable sofa beds. This stunning, upscale property was designed with only three things in mind: luxury, privacy and enjoying its unique location. It is one of the very few villas of the region to have a \"front row\" view of the sea and private access down. The owners made no compromises when it came to quality of construction, interior design, and furnishings. This exclusive villa is clearly the ideal retreat for a demanding clientele, as it has primarily been designed as the lifetime dream of its owner, and not as a rental. Have a drink on one of the terraces, dive into the warm water of the infinity pool or simply relax on the \'dream area\' situated halfway down to the sea and furnished with a twin designer sun bed. If you prefer the fresh sea to the cozy pool, take the rocky pathway to the sea and enjoy a salty swim in complete privacy. A stay at Villa Thalassa will be an experience to treasure forever!
The main entrance into the villa leads to the upper floor. This level offers three master bedrooms, one with a walk-in wardrobe and a bathtub in the center of the room, and the other two with ensuite bathrooms with showers. There is also living area furnished with two sofa beds that can convert into a bedroom by sliding doors. All bedrooms have access to balconies leading to steps down to the pool area.
