Villa
Situated on the top of a small hill, at the edge of a gorge, just outside the rural village of Exopoli and overlooking the resort village of Georgioupolis, these fantastic villas have been extremely cleverly, and very thoughtfully, designed to provide high level of modern comfort that is expected in today's holiday accommodation, firmly influenced by Cretan tradition and style.The final result is a very individual design that fully reflects the Cretan character, the local culture and the environmen.Operating with the authorization of the Greek National Tourism, both villas ensure the privacy of the residents and an exceptional view of Almyros Bay, Lefka Ori (mountains) the village and the landscape of Georgioupolis. The 20km beach is only 3km away from the house....Situated on the top of a small hill, at the edge of a gorge, just outside the rural village of Exopoli and overlooking the resort village of Georgioupolis, these fantastic villas have been extremely cleverly, and very thoughtfully, designed to provide high level of modern comfort that is expected in today's holiday accommodation, firmly influenced by Cretan tradition and style.The final result is a very individual design that fully reflects the Cretan character, the local culture and the environmen.Operating with the authorization of the Greek National Tourism, both villas ensure the privacy of the residents and an exceptional view of Almyros Bay, Lefka Ori (mountains) the village and the landscape of Georgioupolis.
