The villa is located on the outskirts of a small Cretan village, just a 10 minute drive away from the busy tourist destination of Elounda. The villa is accessed via stone steps from a private gated car park down through pretty garden areas and past a covered pergola with BBQ and stone oven. Here, a decked seating area offers beautiful views down over Elounda and Mirabello Bay equally as pretty by day or night. At the entrance to the villa there is another pergola covered dining area on the patio, which sweeps around the whole front of the villa, leading to the private swimming pool and sunbathing area. There are stunning uninterupted views out over the mountains, the sea and Elounda as far as the eye can see. The open plan ground floor is light, airy and spacious and consists of a kitchen with dining area and all appliances including oven and hob, dishwasher, microwave plus all smaller kitchen appliances. The kitchen leads to the lounge which has been tastefully decorated by the owners to a high standard. Windows and patio doors front the room giving beautiful views and a lovely light and spacious feel. The patio doors lead out to the pool on one side and the pergola on the other. There is a dining table and chairs, large corner sofa, tv with satellite channels, dvd player, cd player and a selection of books, games and cds available to our guests. The villa is currently operating as a rental villa and has a full EOT license from the Greek Tourism authority. It is located 4km from Elounda just outside a small traditional village and overlooking Elounda and the sea. The drive up from Elounda takes you past a couple of small villages and then into Kato Pines where you will find the villa a short distance off the main road through the village. The locale close to the villa consists of countryside, small footpaths and stunning views of the surrounding mountains and out over Mirabello Bay. The area is very quiet and peaceful.
