Why We Love It
Villa Octo is a newly designed, eco-friendly villa of 195 sq.m located near Heraklion, the capital of the island, on a bay overlooking the city. The villa is comprised of two levels and it can host up to 6 people.
On the ancient island of Crete, which boosts history & myth, Villa Octo stands on the edge of the sea providing amazing views of the deep blue. An earthy heaven for couples or families seeking a private & peaceful luxury retreat away from the hustle of daily life. Villa Octo was inspired & constructed as an environmentally friendly boutique residence with elegant & luxurious elements to offer a unique spiritual experience as far away as you can get from a large mainstream hotel experience. The villa artfully blends contemporary & traditional styles to create an ambiance of tasteful sophistication- minimal selected furnishings, opulent interiors & lush exteriors with gardens & a private pool, always emphasizing the power & beauty of the endless sea.
The villa aims to provide a truly a genuinely personalized experience in a secluded private getaway with all the elements of the Cretan hospitality, the natural beauty & rich culture of the island & the tranquility that the sea offers with exquisite views from every corner of the villa. Villa Octo will dare you to release your senses & enjoy life in all its aspects.
As our identity expresses, the Minoan Octopus, we wish to symbolize the timelessness of the sea & its healing powers. This symbol was initially found on the Minoan ceramics establishing the power & knowledge of the ancient Cretans in the Mediterranean sea. Today we use it as a metaphor to reconnect with the sea, the traditional way of life & our spiritual side. In Greek, OCTO is also the number 8 that is linked to spiritual perceptions. The 5 senses, the power of thought, the power of self-awareness & the subconscious. A symbolism that carries the serenity of the location and the balanced setting of the villa. Villa Octo thus aims to provide a carefree, luxurious environment for relaxation & recreation that is the definition of paradise.
The location of the Villa offers splendid views of the deep blue and an idyllic environment of harmony, relaxation, and discrete luxury surrounded by Crete’s nature. The distance from the city center is 15km and 20 km from the Nikos Kazantzakis International Airport. The distance from the port is 15km & Knossos Palace is just 17km away. Some of the paradise beaches of the island are close to the residence, such as the beach of Agia Pelagia & Bali beach.
