Luxury castle style villa in Asteri, Crete


Details of the Villa

The villa fuses the delights of traditional Cretan cultures from specialist hand-made furnishings, to chic and stylish themed bedrooms and bathrooms. Villa Aria is positioned inside a charming stone and dominates a fantastic countryside location, set only fifteen minutes from the wonders of Rethymno town. Boasting wondrous views from neighbouring mountains, olive clad countryside and coastal delights down to Rethymno town in the distance, along with some of the best sunsets in the area, this property sets itself above the rest. The unique style of the property, has been designed by a local well known interior designer who has hand made many of the soft furnishings around the property, along with styling each bedroom it's own specialist theme, from classical to a Provençal. Each bathroom also has a similar theme with chic patterned tiles, of which one on the ground floor has been slightly adapted for wheelchair users, with a wider access door and toilet and wet room handles. The villa sets itself around a good sized swimming pool, with all doors leading out from the villa to the pool terrace. Set upon the spacious terrace, sits a fantastic built-in barbecue and wood oven, along with a large dining table sitting beneath a lovely covered pergola. Steps lead down from the terrace to a lower tear of gardens, offering a further seating area and a giant chess board.

For those looking to venture into the charming and bustling town of Reythmno with it's winding streets, Venetian Fortress and quaint little harbour, along with a great selection of sandy beaches, all of which can be found within a short drive away. The property has been designed for guests to enjoy the beautiful landscape and therefore contains some low walls and balustrades, we therefore ask that you take extra care when accessing these areas & ensure children are supervised. Please note the pool has a separate section which has no barrier, the property may therefore not be suitable for families with small children.

Beautifully positioned and angled to take in the stunning sunsets enjoyed along this stretch, Villa Aria combines modern facilities with wonderful touches of Cretan architecture & culture. Its thick, ivory coloured stone walls sit perfectly in this gently sloping landscape of olive groves and farm dwellings, the L-shaped structure creating a large, sheltered terrace where an inviting pool awaits.

Creative use of arched doorways and windows as well as varying roof lines give the impression of a restored castle or abbey, yet the design is as much pragmatic as aesthetic, keeping the interior cool & light on hot summer days.

Inside, the décor and furnishings are an eclectic mix of industrial chic & old world charm, with each room boasting its own individual look. The double height lounge is flooded with light through a huge arched doorway leading out to the pool.
