Overlooking the Gulf of Mirabello on an arid mountain-scape of Crete nestles Villa Achilleas. Constructed with organic shapes and amazingly lush exterior spaces facing towards the sensational landscape of sea and islands, the villa is framed naturally and gracefully fits in with its surroundings. The garden and orchard, which were created by a landscape architect, combine decorative and scented species to enjoy fruits and flowers the entire year-round: olives, oranges, mandarins, lemons, figs, mousmoulia (a type of peach), pomegranate, and aromatic plants – mint, rosemary – turn sitting in the shaded lounge near the garden into a deeply relaxing experience. The villa and gardens have been designed to provide multiple areas of shade during the day as the sun moves around the villa.
Villa Achilleas is a unique Cycladic style villa built by a renowned architect in 2013. The Villa is situated in the exclusive area of East Crete and is situated only 200 meters from the shore, 150 meters above sea level. Built in the middle of an olive tree orchard, this luxurious single-level villa offers privacy and breathtaking views over Psira island and Tholos bay.
