Xara 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms | Air conditioning| WiFi | Heated Pool | Beach 1.5km | Taverna 4km | Sleeps 4
Instantly captivating, the tasteful eye-catching façade of Xara is an impressive monument to modern design while, in marked contrast, Kaliviani just 4km away is a truly authentic Cretan village hugging the shoreline with beautiful stone houses, colourful gardens, two tavernas and two cafés (even more conveniently there is a mini-market for essentials within 500m of the house). With the sandy beach of Vigla just 1.5km and the shops, restaurants, cafés and port at Kissamos (also known as Kastelli) just 6km, this is the ideal location from which to discover the dramatically unspoilt north and west coasts. Extending below Xara’s spacious terrace the views over bucolic countryside to the sea just across the valley are, quite simply, stunning.
A clever blend of glass, stone and chrome, the minimalist aspect of this two-storey property is furnished and equipped to a notably high standard both inside and out. A roomy terrace dominates the front of Xara with an elevated covered dining area in the corner and pretty gardens to one side. The delightful private pool has enticingly wide Roman steps and, viewed from water level, the infinity edge creates inspiring views out across the Aegean to a, barely discernible, meeting point between the sea and horizon.
Large picture windows showcase those panoramic views and allow light to flood in to the ground floor living room which is (obviously!) bright and stylish with a modern, feature fireplace.
Please note: The swimming pool can be heated at an additional cost of €350 a week (€50 per day) paid locally. The heating system needs 24-36hrs to be fully effective.
