The architect used dominant design elements such as - stone, wood and iron, strong and dynamic materials that have given a distinctive aspect and character to the building allowing for an exceptional architectural design, - the light that gives an outdoor aspect inside the house through spectacular openings and offers magnificent view of the pool, the garden and the sea, - the water that encircles the villa in an L-shaped, 23 metre long pool that is practically glued to the building; the sound of the water creates a sensation of serenity and relaxation by itself; at the same time, it offers continuity in the view of the sea and the horizon. - Together with the numerous stone columns in the yard, the verandas, the patio and the pool, the villa has something from the aura of a Roman mansion that stands still in absolute harmony. Inside however the bright and modern décor is more reminiscent of Versace than Caesar.MORE INFO : in Owners Website - www.elafonisi-villas.gr

Description Elafonisi villas - Livadia: The villas is located in the seaside village of Livadia, Keramoti bay, Innahorion, in the south western 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-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.
The west coast of Crete,: all the way from Mpallos and Falasarna till Sfinari, Livadia, Elafonisi in Kissamos until the Krios peninsula in Paleohora, has managed to remain intact despite the passing of time and to have many parts of it included in European Union programmes for the protection of nature.The coastline continues for many kilometres sprinkled with amazing beaches and quiet fishing villages. A few meters higher up in the mountains, mountainous villages pass the time gazing into the infinity of the African sea. Time goes by very slowly up her. Just about in the middle of the west coast, in the village of Livadia, we built the first residence, which was followed by all the rest, with the last two being funded by European Union through Hellenic Ministry of Rural Development and Food programmes for the development of agrotourism. Our concept has been based on notions like luxury, simplicity, natural beauty, ecological conscience, environmental respect.
This concept inspired the construction of dreamy retreats, residences with unique architectural design destined for special people who have seen and tried just about everything and now seek privacy, comfortable and luxurious relaxation in an enchanting setting that guarantees absolute enjoyment.It is a combination of adventure and return to nature at the same time...You can swim in secluded beaches, walk alone and barefoot on the sand and pebbles of the beach, enjoy the rugged beauty of the Cretan landscape on hiking tracks, taste traditional dishes in small local taverns in beautiful villages scattered around this area, savour wine and tsikoudia in the company of locals, go fishing and, weather permitting of course, enjoy a small trip on a speed boat in a search of secluded beaches. You can enjoy captivating sunsets;You can put aside your everyday problems, feel rejuvenated, fill your batteries, get in touch with the people you love but most of all, get in touch again with yourself.

Great villa, excellent service!
We just loved villa Nautilus! It's an amazing villa, located in a peaceful area of western Crete. The villa is ideal for those looking for an accommodation away-from-it-all, in the nature and part of the local lifestyle.
The service of Filippa was above expectations! She was always available to help us with whatever we needed during our stay.
I would recommend a daily cruise to Balos - it was once of a life experience!
We will be back soon!
In die Jahre gekommen
Ein wunderschönes, naturnahes Haus. Der Pool ist einzigartig! Die Betreuung vor Ort auch! Leider ist das Haus etwas in die Jahre gekommen und es wurde versäumt entsprechende Renovierungen vorzunehmen. Auch haben wir mit Ungeziefer zu kämpfen gehabt! Es wurde uns versichert etwas dagegen zu unternehnem, aber davon hatten wir während unseres Aufenthaltes natürlich nichts. Das eine Badezimmer war nicht nutzbar, da ein Wasserschaden vorlag, der während unseres Aufenthaltes nicht behoben werden konnte (es war zwar sauberes Wasser , dennoch wollte niemand bei der Nutzung des Bades im Wasser stehen!). Dafür das es unsere teuerste Unterkunft war, war sie, bis auf den Pool, die Schlechteste (bis auf Eine die auch extrem teuer war- wir sind seit 5Jahren regelmäßig auf Kreta),die wir auf Kreta jemals hatten. Wir durften uns auch die Calypso und Hermes-Villen anschauen, die in einem weitaus besseren Zustand waren! Eine Erstattung oder Vergünstigung bei einer weiteren Buchung wurde uns nicht angeboten! Wir mochten die Gegend sehr gerne und wie gesagt, war die Betreuung vor Ort super. Aber bevor das Master-Bad und die Eingangstüren (Schlitze unten von bis zu 1cm, jegliches Ungeziefer kommt da durch) nicht renoviert/saniert sind und das Ungeziefer (Kakerlaken) beseitigt, würden wir andere Objekte bevorzugen!
thank you for your review!
Indeed, the swimming pool of villa Nautilus is unique and one of the best in the area.
Regarding your remarks about the villa allow us to note the following :
The villa, as you noted, is in the nature, which is almost expected to find insects around. As soon as you noted it to us we sprayed twice but it takes some time to eliminate them. We use eco-friendly products as we are trying to take care of the environment and the eco-system as well.
As far as the bathroom is concerned, we ordered the replacement part immediately. Being in a remote area limits us in delivery time, although we've tried to deliver it the soonest possible. In any case, we apologize for any inconvenience the damage caused you.
Thank you once again for your time to review our villa.
All the best,
Elafonisi Villas Team
