Property description

Perched atop a seaside mountain, overlooking the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea, is Villa Bella Mare. Wine Dark Sea spared no expense crafting this stone mansion, furnished with the finest luxuries. It is the perfect vacation villa for the discerning traveler who expects nothing less than the best when staying in one of the most beautiful corners of the world.

Bella Mare is a truly private retreat, protected and surrounded by strong and elegant walls that are evocative of the ancient walls surrounding the city of Heraklion, left by the medieval Venetians. Within the walls and surrounding the house are glorious garden paths that call to mind ancient gardens from antiquity.

Guests are immersed in a private Eden, filled with flowers and scented trees, which overlooks the dramatic blue hues of the Mediterranean Sea. However, this paradise is not so remote that guests will feel cut off from all the joys Crete has to offer. A short walk down the driveway leads guests to some of the best tavernas on the island. After a meal fit for the gods, guests can return to the villa for a swim in the luxurious pool and swim the fine line that blurs their view with the panoramic vista of the Mediterranean Sea. For those looking for a relaxing day at the beach, the closest is the lovely Ammoudara, which is a mere 15 minutes away by car.

This villa is 20 minutes from Downtown Heraklion, and 25 minutes from the Heraklion Airport.

The kitchen is equipped for the best of chefs, though wonderful restaurants are only a few steps outside the villa gate when even our most proficient cook decides they would like a break from cooking.

Just outside Villa Bella Mare’s front door is a gorgeous outdoor barbecue area where a “Monk’s” table with seating for twelve resides.
