Why We Love It
Showcasing modern boho design, the newly built Villa al Sur is encased by the glass and filled with light and a welcoming atmosphere. The open-plan layout flows easily and the design incorporates natural wood, a color palette, and materials. Located on the Akrotiri peninsula of Chania it is close to pretty beaches and amenities.
Villa al Sur showcases current architectural design which, combined with a modern Boho style interior, creates a relaxed and welcoming ambiance in an upscale chic environment. Situated on the hillside that leads down to the natural harbor of Souda Bay, on the Akrotiri peninsula of Chania, Villa al Sur enjoys beautiful natural views of the White Mountains and Souda bay in the distance.
Light flows throughout the villa thanks to the glass framework which forms a distinct feature. The 380 sq.m. residence spreads across 3 levels and features six generous bedrooms, accommodating 12 guests in their plush beds and up to 13 if required, while the 115 m2 private heated pool spanning the front of the villa beckons you to awake for a dip.
A selection of beautiful beaches and bays, amenities, and captivating Chania town are all within easy reach for those wanting to explore some of what the stunning island of Crete has to offer.
Villa al Sur is located in Pithari on the Akrotiri peninsula of Chania. The area is well known for its beautiful sandy beaches and bays, offering crystalline waters and gorgeous views, such as Kalathas, Marathi, and Loutraki, which are all a short drive from the villa. As you continue down to Souda, some fish restaurants line the bay, flanked by a narrow beach with shallow waters. The peninsula is a pleasure to explore with small villages, hidden bays, and ancient monasteries all waiting to be discovered.
From Villa al Sur, the road into Chania town will lead you through a lush forest area and past famous monuments such as the Venizelos grave. Within a 9km drive, you are likely to visit the enchanting town more than once during your stay! The Venetian restaurant-lined harbor, museums, architecture, and winding alleyways hiding small tavernas, boutiques, and gelaterias are a pleasure to explore on foot.
A little further afield, yet easy to access due to the villa's proximity to the national road, lie the Theriso gorge, Botanical Park, and waterpark all waiting to be discovered. Both the Imbros and Samaria gorge is located in the Chania prefecture for hikers and anyone interested in the stunning natural landscape, and for lovers of archeology, a short drive to the site of Aptera will be a treat.
There is so much to explore and be discovered on Crete, both close by and farther away - the choice is yours.
