Villa description

This beautifully restored 4 bedroom villa boasts sea views and a spacious exterior - ideal for relaxing in the sunshine! Located in the area of Kavros in Chania, this sea view villa is ideal for those wishing to be within walking distance to the beach and a restaurant and a short drive to the local amenities of Kavros. This countryside villa also benefits from free air conditioned/heated bedrooms, plus WiFi.

Located on a small track, this stone, two storey villa is enclosed within its own grounds. After the gated entrance you will find a parking area with adequate space for two or three hire cars.

Before entering the ground floor from the front entrance, there are 2 steps which lead to a covered porch with traditional Cretan seating. Upon entering the property you arrive in the reception area with the lounge to the right with an ornamental fireplace and comfortable seating.

To the left is a small sofa and coffee table, and to the right of the sofa is a contemporary, curved staircase leading to the bedrooms upstairs. Facing you is a wide stone archway taking you through to the dining/kitchen area. The spacious kitchen is in a country style with dark wood cupboards and matching dining table and chairs.

A door from the kitchen leads to the BBQ and outside dining area and another door by the dining area allows access to a secluded paved terrace.

On the ground floor diagonally to the right is the double bedroom with a custom made iron bed and access to the rear paved terrace. An adjacent shower room also functions as a downstairs cloakroom. The washing machine is located in this shower room.

The curved staircase takes you to the upstairs landing. There are patio doors to the right as you reach the top of the stairs that open out to a balcony with sea and countryside views. To the left is the triple bedroom with access to a private balcony. This bedroom has an en suite bathroom with full corner bath and shower attachment.

Opposite the staircase there is a small hall taking you to the twin bedrooms, one to the left and the other to the right side. The twin room on the right has double doors leading to a shared balcony. The twin bedroom on the left has double doors with three steps leading to a large balcony with outdoor furniture and a flight of steps allowing access to the pool and garden. A shower room is located between the bedrooms.

On the landing there is another small staircase leading to attic space which is closed off.

As you venture outside and to the right of the parking area, the circular swimming pool sits amongst a lawned garden with trees and flowering shrubs. There is a single step down to the garden area. To the left of the parking area, there is an outdoor stone built bbq and wood burning oven. The area is shaded by a vine covered pergola. There is also a wooden table and chairs for outdoor dining. Adjacent to the bbq area, attached to the property is a small covered terrace with a small table and chairs. The view from the outside space is of the sea and the surrounding countryside - what better way to spend your holiday than taking a nice relaxing swim in the day and then dining alfresco in the evening whilst admiring this stunning setting?

The private pool is all one depth (5 and a half feet) and has a ladder for access.

Villa location

This 4 bedroom, stone villa is located in the countryside, on the outskirts of the resort of Kavros. It is ideally placed for access to the main highway which runs along the North coast and will take you to Chania in the West and Rethymnon and Iraklion to the East. Just a short drive will bring you to the small resort of Giorgoupoli with a small selection of shops, restaurants and bars located around the pretty village square. There is a long stretch of sand/shingle beach a short distance from the villa, plus a few bars and tavernas as well as hotels along the beach front. A short drive away is the popular town of Rethymnon with its pretty old town and Venetian harbour.

Location features

Villa Avra, located in the area of Kavros, is ideally placed for those who are looking for tranquillity and relaxation, but a short walk to the beach and a restaurant or car ride will bring you to all local amenities including mini markets, tavernas and beaches.

The nearest beach is 550 yards away from the villa and the closest shops are to be found at a distance of just over half a mile.

A short drive further along the coast brings you to the resort of Giorgopouli. Here you will find a number of tavernas, bars, mini markets and a long stretch of sandy beach bordering a bay with shallow sea.

Running regularly from Kavros there is the little road train transporting you to local attractions such as Kournas Lake and the springs of Argyroupoli.

12 miles east of the villa is Rethymnon, the main town of the area has everything you could want from a resort. Here there is 4 miles of sandy beach with organised facilities including water sports and sunbed hire with bar service. Opposite this long stretch of beach there are many shops, bars, tavernas and restaurants.

Next to the beach is the modern marina where local fishermen keep their boats and the occasional luxury yacht moors for a few days. From here you can take the fast ferry for a day trip to the island of Santorini. Early in the mornings the local fishermen sell their catch from the quayside. It doesn't come much fresher than that!

About 550 yards from the marina is the old town of Rethymnon with its cobbled streets lined with boutique style shops, pretty restaurants and tavernas. The old town is a maze of tiny streets with a kaleidoscope of shops selling everything from herbs and spices to dazzling diamonds. Shopping can be tiring so stop at one of the many traditional Kafenions to refresh yourself with a cool drink or try the local coffee served in very small cups. Thick, sweet and with an inch of sludge at the bottom! Rethymnon is a market town and has all the facilities you would expect.

On Thursday on the central car park there is the open air farmers market with locally grown fruits and vegetables as well as all sorts of other stalls selling clothing, shoes and household items to the local residents. You can also buy some locally grown and preserved olives, locally produced cheese and a must syrup called Petimezi which can be used in cakes and salad dressing.

Close to the central car park is a municipal park which is very green and peaceful - a haven of shade in the hot summer months. There is also small open air cafe and children's play area and benches around the park provide restful seating areas.

To the south east of Rethymnon is the monastery of Arkadi, steeped within the history of the island and still used as a working monastery. In this vicinity you will also find the traditional village of Margarites, famous for its ceramic production. Here you can see potters working at their wheels and their wares outside for sale.

The busy town of Chania is about forty-five minutes' drive away with its large old harbour and fabulous Venetian and Turkish architecture reminding visitors of its history. Iraklion too is about an hour and a half drive away so for those who are interested in the ancient civilisation of the Minoans, a visit to the famous palace Knossos is possible.

Villa Avra is a beautiful Villa and a credit to the owner. He was very helpful and friendly. The resort Kavros is quiet but just what we needed, everything available for our two weeks holiday. The villa was the best holiday we have had by far and we look forward to booking this particular villa again. The Villa plus staff was also very helpful giving useful information about the resort and where to go.
