A recent addition to the map, this modern villa sits on a hillside close to the western shoreline of Crete, a prime position that blesses anybody lucky enough to call it home for a while with stunning views of the Ionian Sea and Cretan mountains standing tall in the distance. Given this rather spectacular panorama, you'll be happy to hear that there's plenty of outdoor space from which to lap up the scenery, whether you're cooling off in the swimming pool, enjoying a meal fresh off the barbecue on the terrace or sitting around the fire pit's flickering flames while the sun makes its daily descent below the horizon. Thanks to the large glass doors and windows, you can enjoy these uninterrupted views even when you're inside – they also bring in a heck of a lot of natural light, too. When you can finally manage to glance away from the landscape, you're sure to be suitably impressed by the chic interior design, which deftly balances contemporary features with flashes of exposed stonework that feel a little more traditional. Aside from a pair of neighbouring homes, the surrounding area feels secluded and pretty peaceful at that. However, you're not too far from people and excitement. Falassarna Beach is only 800 metres from the home, for instance, while the port town of Kissamos is 15km away.
