The village of Xamoudohori is just a few minutes’ walk away. This is a typical traditional Cretan village with a Kafenion on the village square. Within a 5 minute drive is the larger, livelier village of Maleme providing all amenities including supermarkets, pharmacy, bakery, restaurants, local public transport and much more. The beach at Maleme is quiet and there are many tavernas and bars along the beach.
Built to the highest standards, no effort or expense was spared when this sumptuous house was conceived. It is well thought out, functional, tastefully decorated with an eye for details and extremely well maintained. Its architecture and elegant ambience blend perfectly with the surrounding olive groves.
The one storey villa consists of 3 parts that are cleverly connected by a hallway laid out in a semi circle and giving access to the different areas.
The middle and main part is the heart of the property housing the comfortable living quarters and the main entrance.
The west part consists of the kitchen and the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walking closet.
The east part comprises the guest rooms and a spacious bathroom.
The main entrance is protected by a tiled covered white pergola with columns and opens in a hallway with a WC.
A large double door in mat glass opens into a comfortable, spacious living / dining area which is tastefully decorated. Plenty of windows and doors provide an abundance of natural light. Ceiling fans and air conditioning keep the area cool during hot summer days and under floor heating provides warm winter days.
Two large sliding doors open to the exterior areas and the swimming pool, all set on one level for easy access.
To the left and separated from the living room, a modern fully equipped U shaped kitchen stands out with its deep red colour bordered with white worktops.
A glass door leads to a white wood beamed pergola with stylish columns supporting the terracotta tiles, the ideal place for exterior wining and dining.
Another door leads from the kitchen to a small hallway where a spacious utility room is found and eventually leading to the sunny south facing master bedroom, equipped with an en-suite shower room with a glass walk in shower cubicle, a wall mounted toilet and bidet, a sink and modern accessories.
Adjacent to this room there is also a walk in wardrobe.
The utility room with the washing machine, tumble dryer, ironing board etc is a useful space away from the rooms.

Each bedroom has a floor to ceiling wardrobe, air conditioning, a ceiling fan and access to a terrace or balcony with wonderful views.

Tiled steps with aluminum banisters lead to the spacious basement that has been divided into 4 different rooms + an additional bathroom.
There is a storage room, a room for the storage of the olive oil and wine, a technical room with the water tank and pressure pump and one room that could serve as a playroom/gym/games room.
The bathroom offers a wall to wall shower, a sink and wall mounted WC.
The basement is fully tiled and equipped with under floor heating (except the technical room).
Even from outside this property impresses.
As you arrive, a large electric gate opens to a spacious, extremely well maintained and landscaped area with stamped concrete bordered with flower beds, low stone walls and a variety of flowers and bushes.
A smaller gate provides access for the pedestrians.
A separate building houses the garage with an electric gate and attached to it, a segregated room houses the huge generator (in case of power cut).
There are plenty of seating areas spread all over the plot, offering a shady or sunny place depending the season.
The colourful garden has plenty of space for both sun worshippers and for children who like to run around and play.
To the east side of the plot, a private olive grove with 17 olive trees provides its own top quality olive oil (80 to 100 litres of oil yearly). The selling price includes the equipment for the picking and collecting of the olives.
Beside olive trees, this “Garden of Eden” is home to a number of typically Mediterranean flowering shrubs including: sweet scented jasmine, oleander, bird of paradise, bougainvillea, jacaranda, callistemon (bottle brush), ficus, plumbago, canna etc – as well as a variety of fruit trees such as orange trees, lemons, kumquat, pomegranate, mulberry, pepper tree.
Special emphasis has been paid to the pool terrace and dining terrace where you can chill out or dine al-fresco in total privacy, with a choice of sun or shade.
The 10m x 4m pool looks down the valley of olive groves and vineyards to the sea. The pool also features a children’s area and is surrounded with light coloured tiles and plenty of space for the sun loungers and umbrellas.
Two tiled covered white pergolas have been furnished with comfortable exterior furniture to relax as well as a dining table with chairs.
A stone wall with security banister, niches and plenty of flowers surrounds the pool.
A few stone steps lead to a lower terrace below the pool area with a neat lawn, an ideal and secure place for the children.
