Stunningly furnished with two bedrooms and a short hop from the sea, villa Ammos brings you high-quality accommodation in a peaceful, natural environment. Read on to discover how you can spend your holiday amid this delightful Cretan idyll.
Crafted out of local limestone and blending seamlessly into the shoreline landscape, Villa Ammos offers discreet and stylish accommodation just a few metres from the warm waters of the Aegean.
With two lovely bedrooms and its own wondrous infinity pool, Ammos has been lovingly created to host an intimate group of family or friends.
From a terrace, you cross the pebble beach via a boardwalk and dip into the turquoise waters – ideal for snorkelling, bathing, fishing or simply to enjoy the natural wildlife as sandpipers, herons, falcons and other birds hover over the beach.
Ammos is the Greek word for sand, and you discover the link with this Youphoria villa as soon as you set foot in the sea and discover the smooth pebbles giving way to fine sand beneath the waves.
With solid wood finishing and softwood flooring, the highest quality fittings and furnishings throughout and discreet LED-lit steps, the villa is designed with a love of the sea in mind and is a perfect base for taking a boat out to explore the coastline, head off to Gramvousa or Souda Bay, or take in the ocean air.
Set on Kissamos Bay, the contemporary, purpose-built property features clean lines and uses natural colours and materials as it makes the most of the natural light. Expansive windows from the open plan kitchen/breakfast bar area seamlessly link the interior with the outdoors to offer a wonderful beachfront panorama.
The large outdoor living space – with all-day sunshine around the pool – includes a pergola and dining table with grass areas suitable for children to play on.
Rocks in front of the self-catering villa light up at night, creating a magical shoreline aura as you barbeque and enjoy al fresco dining late into the evening with a glass of Cretan wine on the terrace.
Comfortably sleeping five guests, Ammos offers a perfect base to explore Western Crete, eating fresh fish in local tavernas, shopping in Chania or bathing on beaches such as the delightful Falasarna or the shell-strewn Elafonisi, or discovering your Cretan gems…and we may just be able to let you in on a few hidden secrets with our extensive local knowledge!
Combining calming décor with Cretan aesthetics, Ammos offers peace and tranquillity by the shore.
*The semi-detached villa, set in landscaped gardens and grassed areas, is part of our three beachfront villas, each with its style and privacy but connected by internal doors. Talk to us about bringing your family and friends and renting any combination of Ammos, Votsalo (sleep 12) and Meltemi (sleep 5) for larger parties.
