Unique villa located on the edge of the Plaka coastal area in the district of Almyrida in the Apokoronas region.
Fantastic, private terraces with 360 degree views of the ocean, the cliffs, Souda Bay, The White Mountains, Kalyves, Almyrida, Plaka, Drapanos and the Akrotiri peninsula. The unprecedented, marvellous views are unforgettable.
The villa is attractively furnished, with a well-equipped kitchen, and Danish design furniture in rosewood from the 1960s and 1970s. Eclectic elements and distinctive art contribute to exciting and characteristic interiors. Superior beds and high quality linens and towels.
4 double bedrooms, one a family room with a comfortable double sofa. 8-10 beds, 3 baths.

Main floor with entrance, living room / kitchen / dining room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and access to the terrace / pool area. Infinity pool with panoramic views to Souda Bay and Almyrida beach.

Countryside roads through olive groves of Plaka pass below the villa and lead beyond the cliffs.

Thank you very much for the excellent staying at Villa Peninsula and for taking care of us with useful tips. Everything was perfect and we really enjoyed the house. The house is located in a spectacular location and has all the comforts you want. We really enjoyed our stay! Thank you very much

The pictures of this villa do not do it justice - this is the most incredible place I've ever stayed! It's essentially a 360 degree view of the sea from the pool, and the villa itself is gorgeous and well designed and decorated. Alexandra is super knowledgeable about where to go and what to do in Crete, and was very helpful in planning day trips for our group. We were a group of 10 and had a fantastic stay, and would highly recommend this place to anyone!

This is a truly stunning property, beautifully maintained in an incredible location. I really don’t have enough superlatives to describe it. Alexandra looked after us brilliantly and we really have no complaints. I can’t recommend this highly enough.

Un séjour dans un décor de rêves, encore plus beau que sur les photos!!! La maison a été pensée de manière très ingénieuse, une vue à couper le souffle de chaque pièce: mer oliviers, fleurs, piscine, patio de repos et lecture. La villa domine sur la baie, les couleurs sont superbes à chaque instant de la journée et surtout au coucher de soleil. Très calme aussi. Une décoration tres sympathique et des prestations de très grande qualité. Je recommande vivement cette villa!!!

A great holiday. The house is lovely, really provides a homey feeling, and the view is spectacular. It also provides great privacy. The area is great, lots of amenities close by. We had 1 or 2 issues during our stay but the service provided by Alexandra and her team was amazing: quick answers and solutions at any time of the day. 100% recommended.

What Else?!? Cette villa est juste incroyable. L’emplacement est idéal, à l’écart des bars de plage et en contact avec la nature. Elle est très bien équipée. ... ça va être compliqué de trouver aussi bien pour nos prochaines vacances. Alexandra a été à notre disposition dès que nous avions besoin d’elle : questions sur la maison, conseil pour les visites, organisation de sorties...elle s’est même chargée de prendre un rendez-vous chez le médecin pour nous. Alexandra fourni un niveau de service digne des conciergeries dès meilleurs hôtels. Thank a lot for your kindness. Your reactivity was very helpful. I hope we could plan another vacation to your Villas soon. Seen the reaction of our friends when they saw photos on Facebook, I’m sure that some of them will try to rent Peninsula in coming years.

We stayed for one week in this beautiful house. The location couldn't be more stunning. It was very private and a fantastic view in all directions. The interior design was beautiful. Close to restaurants and beaches, as well as hiking. If we ever go back to Crete we definitely would like to go back to this house. Felt like home.

This Villa is truly beautiful and architecturally stunning. The views from the pool area and equally inside the living and kitchen areas are breathtaking. From the interior one could easily be on the top deck of a cruise ship as the view to the sea is all around you. The house is excellently appointed with every possible amenity for a completely luxurious, private, quiet, spacious and comfortable holiday. The decor is beautifully modern and bright. The photos are not deceiving. Plaka and Almyrida are such friendly, uncommercial resorts and offer everything a group of friends or family could wish for. Local shopping and restaurants in Plaka are 5 minutes by car. The maintenance by Carina is second to none and she helped us with everything from restaurant advice to an abundance of clean linen. To conclude, a lot of thought has gone into this house and we wouldn't hesitate to come back. Highly recommended 5 Stars! Many thanks to Carina and her efficiency and help in all matters. We will hopefully be back. It was fab. Many thanks.

The pictures on the post for the property don't do it justice. The views are breathtaking 360 degrees of the whole bay. Sunsets are to die for. Plenty of room with good size bedrooms 3 up stairs and a master down stairs with a bed and sofa bed perfect for families. Kitchen is well stocked and you will have everything you need to cook at home in comfort. Swimming pool is amazing the beach is 10 min drive. Highly recommend this property.Great stay can't wait to return again.
Kajsa, July 2017
Wow! What a fantastic house by the sea! We spent a week in July in this enjoyable and spacious villa. Everything exceeded our expectations. The house was well equipped, clean with all facilities you need and the view is just amazing! All communication with Alexandra and Carina worked out smoothly and always with a friendly and helpful tone. We are really happy that we found this pearl and will recommend this house to all our family and friends. Hej! Tusen tack för ett fantastiskt boende. Huset var över all förväntan och mycket välutrustat. Toppen att du alltid fanns tillgänglig, även Carina gjorde ett strålande jobb!

We had an amazing time in the beautiful villa in Plaka. We were two families staying there for a week. 4 adults and 6 kids. The view from the house is breathtaking and the infinite pool is stunning. The house was clean and in perfekt order when we arrived. Alexandra and Carina (who takes care of the cleaning and service) was there to welcome us showed us how everything worked and explained the few house rules. It is a 30 minutes walk to get to Plaka center where you can find a good selection of restaurants and two mini markets where you can by water, fruit, food and wine. We are very happy and satisfied with our visit and can highly recommend to book this place for a comfortable vacation.
