4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sea view, mountain view, rooftop jacuzzi
A majestic 3-storey house, size 320 square metres, designed to host cosmopolitan travellers, including lovers of beauty and warm welcomes. A special living space, offering panoramic view to the Cretan sea and the majestic White Mountains.
Big openings allow full sunlight to highlight the earthy tones throughout the villa that blend together with the complementing white background. All indoor areas have been decorated with well-chosen details intended to soothe senses, to satisfy enjoyment and to breathe out sophistication and hospitality.
Constructed over 3 levels
Entering from the main entrance, the villa is a spacious living area, with a high ceiling supported by wooden beams. Sophisticated furnishing throughout all three levels combines a touch of tradition, hints of personal taste, carefully-selected lighting, stone or fine-wall finishing, and bathrooms and kitchens selected to enrich our guests' well-being.
The villa’s ground floor
The ground floor includes two separate bedrooms, each with 2 single beds and private bathroom along with a relaxing hot-tub. Fluffy bathrobes and towels, personal hygiene items and all accessories of a privately-owned house are made available for our guests. Each room has an air conditioner, spacious closets and a safe. Both bedrooms look to the beautiful landscape that lies beneath their private verandas next to the pool. Further inside, we find a small but functional kitchen with a fridge, a coffee machine, a mini bar, a glass-ceramic cook-top and a washing machine. The same area also houses the gym with a treadmill, a stationary bicycle, fitness equipment, a ping pong table and a big sauna for ultimate relaxation! In the gym are two extra single beds to accommodate extra guests. The ground floor also contains a wine-cellar with wines skilfully produced by the owners. There is also a large freezer and a smaller storage space.
The first floor of the villa
The first floor includes one bedroom with a double bed and private bathroom with a hydro-massage shower cabin. Facilities available to guests include air conditioners, spacious closets, a safe, space for luggage and the room's private balcony view of old stone houses, the massive white mountains and serene olive groves. The first floor also houses the large open-plan living room with a comfortable couch, a fireplace, an LCD Satellite TV, a DVD player, a hi-fi system and a docking station. Next door is the kitchen with a contemporary-style family dinner table, a fridge, a microwave, a stove, a dish-washer, an espresso coffee maker and all necessary equipment to cook and serve. The spacious indoor areas extend outside to a large veranda with a panoramic view to the mountains and the sea, equipped with an eight-person dining table and many benches to relax for a drink, a coffee or to eat, all hours of the day.
The second floor of the villa
The second floor houses one more spacious bedroom with a double bed, a private bathroom with shower, as well as one delightful surprise: a big veranda with an outdoor Jacuzzi for four, looking out onto breathtaking scenery in the sunset or under the moonlight!
A house to live in
Located on a hill high enough to look down over the area, the villa reflects the attention paid to detail infused by its creators, having been designed to serve as a summer house for guests that seek a high aesthetic value. It is a modern residence built with natural materials and building techniques. The villa features stones set in the colour of the earth they come from with highlights of pink, grey and beige that “mellow down” contrasts.
A perimeter overflow pool
Villa Rouga has been equipped with a 52 m2 pool with a sanitation system based on salt water (free of chlorine), friendly to the skin and eyes, with a deck level overflow system to give the impression that water flows directly from some natural spring. Outdoor areas also include a barbeque and a traditional Cretan stone oven.
A well-designed garden
Blending harmonically in with the landscape around it, the garden of the villa suits Mediterranean climates. A prickly pear tree dominates the space, complemented by pine trees, olive trees and many other kinds of plants and trees native to the environment. A traditional stone wall, a typical feature of Cretan architecture, borders the garden.
Villa Rouga is located in Xirosterni village, one of the villages of “Kefalades”, Byzantine colonists sent to settle in Crete in order to let their “chivalry” take root on the island. The villa itself is near a small square, where traditionally the villagers would gather to exchange their views. Close to the clear-blue waters of Almyrida and Kalyves, it is also a key location to visit other parts of Western Crete, including the southern town of Sfakia with its rich history and equally stunning landscape.
