Villa Edwina

Villa Edwina is a magnificent eight-bedroom luxury villa, set in its own estate at the water's edge, overlooking the sea in Elounda, in the north east of Crete, the largest of the Greek Islands.

Luxury in privacy was the owners' goal here and, boy, did they score. Directly overlooking the sea and surrounded on three sides by mature gardens, planted with pines, olive and lemon trees and abundant flowers and herbs, this is a place to sit and reflect on nature's beauty. Within the grounds there is a Davis Cup-sized tennis court, a boules court, a private chapel and a swimming deck with direct access to the sea.

The villa's 12 x 6m infinity pool directly faces out to sea with a lounging terrace and al fresco dining spaces creating a variety of outdoor living areas.

The villa’s graceful design is executed beautifully, making the most of its light and airy architecture and  balancing classical proportions with contemporary design. Wthile he drawing room's 600 year old fireplace is the centrepiece, it is complemented by stunning sea views from each window and enhanced by the finest fabrics, floorings and finishes. Beyond, there is a lovely inside dining room, a library and games room, complete with antique billiards table and grand piano. The kitchen is fit for a Relais & Châteaux chef (available when required).

Outside, there are large terraces on three sides of the villa, with a pergola-shaded dining area and barbeque, ideal for al fresco dining.

The 8 bedrooms are divided between the main house and adjacent cottage. Each of the six bedrooms in the main house are en-suite and have their own balcony or terrace. The two-bedroom cottage is but a moment’s walk away. Perfect for teenage children or a small family group, this separate cottage allows larger traveling groups to have their own space within the estate.

Villa Edwina is a vast luxury villa that would make the ideal base for the perfect family holiday on Crete.
