A few steps away from the sprawling Kouremenos Beach – a popular pick for watersports, this handsome home sits right on Crete's beloved coastline. Discover charming tavernas within walking distance of your doorstep, where you can get a taste of local life. As for exploring the vicinity, why not drive eight minutes into Palekastro, or take a twenty-minute journey into the monastery-dotted town of Sitia? Ideal for couples seeking a romantic retreat on the sands, this villa keeps relaxation at the forefront. Each morning, you'll open your bedroom curtains and carry your breakfast out onto this private patio. Dip your toes in the pool to keep cool, then perhaps you'll treat yourself to an at-home massage – one of the special services available. Sip some wine outdoors as you grill traditional souvlaki over the barbecue and make plans for tomorrow. What better way is there to end the day than watching the sunset atop the Mediterranean Sea from this intimate table for two?
