Villa Calypso

Built right on the edge of the cliffs of Cape Koutoulas, the villa Calypso offers a direct view of the sea from all of its seating areas. The infinite blue of the sea, the white pebbles on the beach, the green locusts and the black and red cliffs of the Cape make up an enchanting setting for the tenants of the villa, who can be compared to the Homerian hero Ulysses that was enchanted by the beauty of the Queen Calypso. The excellent use of stone, iron, glass & wood, in both traditional and modern styles, produces an innovative architectural design that gives guests the illusion of being aboard a sailing boat at sea. The luxurious equipment and the comfortable & fully functional areas add to a sense of perfect tranquillity & privacy by ensuring living conditions of relaxation, serenity & freedom of movement & choice to its tenants.MORE INFO : in the end of this page - the choice = Owners Website - click here for more information. differently Website www.elafonisi-villas.gr

Our five villas, villa Hermes,Villa Nautilus, Villa Neptune, Villa Ostria and Villa Calypso, have all been built according to the principles of luxury, simplicity, natural beauty, ecological conscience and environmental respect.This concept inspired the construction of our villas with unique architectural design, destined for people, who seek privacy, comfortable and luxurious relaxation in an enchanting setting. You can swim in secluded beaches, enjoy the rugged beauty of the Cretan landscape, walk on hiking tracks or taste traditional dishes in small local taverns in beautiful villages scattered around the area of Elafonissi.

MORE INFO www.elafonisivillas.gr

Description Elafonisi villas - Livadia: The villas is located in the seaside village of Livadia, Keramoti bay, Innahorion, in the south western part of Crete, at a distance of 72 km from Chania and 31 km from Kissamos. The villa can be accessed through a 4 km long road that is connected to the regional provincial road. The village is located in the middle of the European hiking path E4– a seaside route of exceptional natural beauty- that starts at the village of Kambos and continues through the villages of Keramoti, Livadia, Chryssoskalitissa and Elafonisi. The route is typical of the rugged beauty of Crete with amazing changes of the scenery between olive and locust trees and sea-beaten rocks of black and red volcanic lava-In the village of Livadia, buying food is still done in the traditional way – you may buy fish from the fishermen in the small harbour, vegetables, dairy products and meat from the farmers, but you will also find three small taverns.

The west coast of Crete,: all the way from Mpallos and Falasarna till Sfinari, Livadia, Elafonisi in Kissamos until the Krios peninsula in Paleohora, has managed to remain intact despite the passing of time and to have many parts of it included in European Union programmes for the protection of nature.The coastline continues for many kilometres sprinkled with amazing beaches and quiet fishing villages. A few meters higher up in the mountains, mountainous villages pass the time gazing into the infinity of the African sea. Time goes by very slowly up her. Just about in the middle of the west coast, in the village of Livadia, we built the first residence, which was followed by all the rest, with the last two being funded by European Union through Hellenic Ministry of Rural Development and Food programmes for the development of agrotourism. Our concept has been based on notions like luxury, simplicity, natural beauty, ecological conscience, environmental respect.

This concept inspired the construction of dreamy retreats, residences with unique architectural design destined for special people who have seen and tried just about everything and now seek privacy, comfortable and luxurious relaxation in an enchanting setting that guarantees absolute enjoyment.It is a combination of adventure and return to nature at the same time...You can swim in secluded beaches, walk alone and barefoot on the sand and pebbles of the beach, enjoy the rugged beauty of the Cretan landscape on hiking tracks, taste traditional dishes in small local taverns in beautiful villages scattered around this area, savour wine and tsikoudia in the company of locals, go fishing and, weather permitting of course, enjoy a small trip on a speed boat in a search of secluded beaches. You can enjoy captivating sunsets;You can put aside your everyday problems, feel rejuvenated, fill your batteries, get in touch with the people you love but most of all, get in touch again with yourself.

Back to nature

  • 5 of 5

Secluded, perfectly integrated in the stunning landscape, Villa Calypso became our private paradise for a week this year. We only regret we didn't book one more week, but otherwise, we loved every single moment.

The villa has kept all its promises:,it was, indeed, a home away from home, perfectly furnished and fully equipped to meet our needs. I really appreciated the space and the arrangements (each of the three bedrooms had their own baths, which turned out to be an excellent idea since we travelled this year with friends).

Most of the days, we (unwillingly) left the villa early in the morning to explore the island's magnificent beaches and taste the local cuisine in some picturesque eaterie. However, our last day on the island we chose to stay in. We ordered food from a nearby tavern that would deliver its delicious local specialties at our door, and we enjoyed the comfort, the view and the jacuzzi trying to overcome the melancoly of the thought that our vacation was almost over.

Overall, the tranquility of the landscape, the serenity of the view, the comfort of a posh daybed facing the sea and the little joys that Villa Calypso offered us has been a journey itself.

My advice? Go with people you love, take a good book with you, rent a car, keep it simple and give yourself some time to relax in this unique realm of nature. It will be a memorable experience. I often dream of the day I will be back. Someday. Soon I hope.

We had a blast at villa Nautilus

  • 5 of 5

We spend 7 days at the villa Nautilus and really had a blast. The villa is absolutely beautiful, near the sea, quiet and in a perfect shape. For us it was up to now the most wonderful villa we have been to. We can totally recommend this villa.

Villa Calypso nur zu empfehlen

  • 5 of 5

wir waren im Juni in der Villa Calypso und waren sehr zufrieden. Das Haus ist toll, die Lage ist etwas abgelegen, da wir aber zu sechst waren, war uns das egal. Die Taverne in der Nähe ist auch nur zu empfehlen, das Essen war super der Preis unschlagbar. Die Menschen auf kreta sind alle sehr nett und sehr zuvorkommend. Wir werden ganz bestimmt wieder kommen!!

Traumurlaub in the middle of nowhere

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine trauhafte Woche in der Villa Calypso verbracht. Die Wirklichkeit war fast noch besser als die Bilder im Internet. Sowohl die Inneneinrichtung als auch der Pool sind in einem wirklich guten Zustand. Einzig und allein der Grill ist nicht wirklich einladend. Aber das war nicht schlimm, denn wir hatten ja Iannis....Mit seinem köstlichen "traditional, home- made food" hat er uns eine Woche lang herrlich verwöhnt. Die Villa liegt sehr einsam und die nächste größere Stadt ist ca 1 Std Autofahrt entfernt. Aber wer diese Einsamkeit mag, wir die Villa und die Gegend lieben! Wir werden sicherlich wiederkommen

Tout d'abord, cet endroit est magnifique.

Félicitation à celui qui a trouvé l'endroit.

Félicitation à l'architecte qui a pensé cette villa et l'a si bien intégrée dans le paysage.

Pour les gens qui comme nous recherchent la tranquillité, et l'isolement, l'endroit était parfait. En pleine nature au milieu de nulle part... c'était pour nous fantastique.

Le paysage autour de la villa est magnifique : on a vraiment l'impression d'être seul au monde.

La nature est sauvage et pourtant si apaisante.

Nous nous sommes laissés bercer par le bruit des vagues... le bruit du vent... l'odeur de la mer...

Nous nous sommes détendus, reposés, et avons largement profité de l'endroit...

La villa est très bien équipée (merci encore pour le micro-ondes), très agréable à vivre et extrêmement bien conçue : trois chambres avec chacune une salle de bain, l'intimité de chacun est préservée... en cas de besoins.

Les terrasses et pontons sont très joliment meublés et offrent vraiment l'illusion d'être sur l'eau comme sur le pont d'un bateau.

La piscine est très agréable et elle parfait encore l'image de la villa.

Nous voyageons à travers le monde depuis bien longtemps. C'est la première fois que nous pensons revenir au même endroit une deuxième fois...

La villa Calypso est un véritable paradis terrestre...

A une douzaine de kilomètres, la magnifique plage d'Elafonisi... féérique... une des plus belles plages que nous ayons vue...

Nous y allions tous les deux jours et ramenions notre pain frais et ce qui nous manquait... c'est le seul inconvénient lorsqu'on est isolé... il faut prendre la voiture pour faire deux trois emplettes... ceci dit, les propriétaires vous proposent de fournir l'essentiel pour votre arrivée... mais bon... sur le chemin entre l'aéroport et la villa il y a assez d'endroit pour faire ses courses avant l'arrivée sur place...

A ce sujet, nous voudrions remercier une fois encore Gregory qui nous a bien aidé pour tout... surtout lorsque nous avons crevé un pneu de notre voiture... il a visiblement des solutions à tous les problèmes...

Jamais très loin mais jamais envahissant, c'est un personnage discret et indispensable.

Nous conseillons aux voyageurs qui louent une voiture de privilégier les 4 x 4... En effet, la partie du chemin non goudronnée n'est pas facile avec une voiture normale...

Pour le reste, ça n'a été que du bonheur... Allez-y...

The west coast of Crete, all the way from Balos and Falassarna till Sfinari, keramoti , Livadia and Elafonissi has remained intact despite the passing of time and the increasing number of visitors.The west coastline of Crete continues for many kilometres sprinkled with amazing secluded beaches and small fishing villages. Higher up in the mountains, mountainous villages offer amazing views to the deep-blue sea of Crete. The countryside is characterized by wild beauty, offering an incredible variety of landscapes and combining the rawness of the mountain ranges, the luscious green riverbeds with plane trees and oleander, together with the endless blue of the sea. Elafonissi is located on the west coast of Crete and it is one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete with white and pink sand and a lagoon with water shallow enough to walk to the opposite island. Thousands of tourists visit Elafonissi each year, as well as the nearby monastery of Chrissoskalitissa.
