With magnificent views of the brilliant blue ocean and all the way across to the curved coastline immediately opposite, Thea (aptly meaning ‘view’ in Greek) stands serenely above Souda Bay, one of the largest and most impressive natural bays in the Mediterranean. The wonderful pool terrace is perfectly furnished for outdoor living, with rattan sofas and armchairs in a shaded alcove. Colourful gardens and a verdant lawn offer differing perspectives of the sea and mountains as you recline on the sun loungers or four poster day bed!
Thea’s attractive interior is charmingly themed around the colour green; pastel cushions blend effortlessly with the white cupboards and dining suite, giving a modern style that fits perfectly with the more traditional stone arches and wooden ceiling beams. A rocking chair and gingham curtains lend a homely, comfortable atmosphere. One of the arches leads into a good-sized kitchen which is well equipped and has an appealing country farmhouse feel. Through another arch is the stairway to the first floor where a double and twin bedroom share a balcony with splendid sea views, the principal bedroom has an en suite bathroom and looks out to the same dramatic views.
The private swimming pool has a barbecue to one side, perfect for al fresco dining and is a delightful spot in which to relax and unwind as the sun gently disappears behind the hills in the west.
Megala Chorafia (2km) is typical of the traditional villages clustered in the Apokoronas Mountains, where the thyme-covered hills give the locally-produced honey an intoxicating scent. The population of just 300 (plus a huge flock of sheep!) share a couple of churches, a local ‘kafenion’, handy mini-market for essentials and two tavernas. The sandy beach of Kyani is just 3km (about a 7 minute drive) away. Testament to the island’s long, rich history the celebrated ancient site of Aptera and some well-preserved Roman cisterns are also close by and worth visiting, as are the ‘White Mountains’ (Lefki Ori) known for their scenic snow-capped peaks and which you will have the curious illusion are within touching distance of the property.
