Luxury development of 3 independent boutique design villas with Breakfast.
The Villas are built in a rich colourful stone that emphasizes on the more modern Cretan architecture of today. The villas offer sun flooded areas with shades of different colours during the day periods that leaves a lasting impression from every angle of the Villas. These embody the perfect example for architectural delight and study on Crete’s today’s civilization.
The Villas are designed with high ceilings, spacious rooms and large patio windows. The wooden structure, the marble and glass features and metal fixtures blend materialistically entwined into its stone characters offering a high aesthetic result in design. High quality indoor and outdoor furnishings designed specifically for the villas complete its comfortable environment for sheer relaxation. The famous architects Aristomenes and George Baroudakis managed perfectly to capture, artful design, comfort and sheer quality at its fingertips for every welcoming guest that visits. Impressive high stone walls very thick at the bottom and thinner at the top create a castle like building perfectly harmonized with contemporary design from inside.
Each Villa has its own private overflow swimming pool that can be entered by its yacht style wooden deck that is extended alongside side each of the pools. The pools are made of Diamond Brilliance finishes with quartz aggregates that give a ray of stunning rainbow like colours (iridescences) during different periods of the day. The surrounding garden areas are something to definitely highlight on, as the owners managed to maintain the original fruitful orange and olive trees in their original place during the Villas construction and add flowers and bushy plants.
The fruitful orange trees burst with zest and aromas of natural essence that linger in their lush gardens and emphasize on the uniquely built quality of these three individual and private Villas. Oranges are ready to be picked up by guest during the spring and summer periods to taste the best Cretan juices.
Organic Cretan Breakfast with fresh morning hospitality plates is offered FREE OF CHARGE. Breakfast is personally prepared & served by chef to all guests at the villas’ common outdoor dining area, daily from Monday to Saturday for period June – September.

Why Despina Georgia Sivaropoulou chose Kontomari
We wanted to come back to promote our land, the civilization, our products and above all show to people the real Cretan hospitality.

Spectacular Stay in Crete
From the beginning, Despina was wonderful. She helped us to arrange everything we needed for our stay in Crete. We arrived late to the Villa at 11:30pm with a personal, warm and friendly welcome by Despina. She gave us a detailed tour of the Villa and left some beautifully prepared bites and wine for us to eat (per our request). The space was immaculately kept and the design and architecture was modern yet warm and comfortable. After a wonderful nights rest, we woke up to light fluttering throughout the house. The home is surrounded by Olive and Orange trees with a view of the Sea. Despina hosted a delicious traditional Greek breakfast spread outside in the garden by her Chef. I wish I could eat this breakfast every day for the rest of my life - it was that good with such a variety of items!
We only had a short visit to Crete and I do plan to return one day and when I do - I will definitely reserve this beautiful Villa again. Despina's hospitality along with the Villa itself was perfection! I cannot say this enough....it was a dreamy couple of days! I hope you get to enjoy it one day too.

So much more than I expected!
I have traveled all over Greece, especially Crete and I didn't expect the level of luxury I received here.
Every detail was exquisite, the owners were hospitable and showed me how to maneuver the house (it's a smart house). The sheets were of the finest quality but what I loved the most was the tranquility. You are close to the beach but far enough to have peace and quiet. Orange trees and a small village surround the property giving you the perfect blend of quiet, vacation and stunning views!
Situated in a convenient setting at the edge of Kontomari village allowing quietness & privacy in a wonderful green area, while the strategic location facilitates visiting all famous seaside places, the bustling summer tourist resorts and the beautiful city of Chania and its Venetian harbour.
