Photos and Description of this Almirida holiday villa
4 bedroom villa with sea and mountain views, games room and childrens play area
Located on a hillside covered in silvery green olives trees on the outskirts of Almyrida, this exceptional modern villa with its extensive well kept grounds, Free WIFI internet access, heated pool, gym, games room, children’s playground, and tennis/basketball court is yours in its entirety. With open views across rolling hills to the sea and mountains, the setting may seem rural and completely private but The Eagle's Nest Villa is nevertheless only 800m from the pretty seaside resort of Almyrida with its sandy beaches and waterfront tavernas.
The spacious interiors are perfectly prepared for large families or groups who like to holiday together in total comfort, and our low season prices even make this magnificent property accessible to couples who want to treat themselves to an unforgettable holiday.The thoughtful owner, Giorgos, has carefully designed The Eagle’s Nest Villa with one aim in mind – complete relaxation and happiness for all of his guests
Children and the more active members of the family will be enchanted by the games room and gym on the ground floor of the villa. The games room features a pool table, tennis table, table football, darts board, X-Box 360, plasma TV, mini kitchen, and sofa bed, whilst the gym is equipped with everything from a weight machine, rowing machine, step machine, and running machine to yoga mats. A shower room and a cupboard with safety deposit boxes complete the ground floor layout.
Competing for attention are the 4000m2 of immaculate grounds that have been landscaped using local stone for the attractive walls with nook details, a fountain, a waterfall, and raised flowerbeds planted with oleander, hibiscus, geraniums and South African daisies. Surrounded by olive groves and set within an electric gate and attractive stone walls, privacy is ensured. The lower terrace features a covered parking area, fountain, shrine, and a tennis court that can also be utilised for basketball and volley ball.
The pool on the middle terrace boasts a separate shallow children’s area, 2 outside showers, and, very unusually for Crete is heated for an extra charge at the start of the season. Next to the pool is a lush lawn that is flanked on one side by a pergola covered outside eating area with a stone barbecue and bread oven, and a waterfall cascading down a stone wall on the other. The upper level is a delight for toddlers and small children, with a swing set, a see-saw, and a slide/small house, set on a soft grassy area. The pool, dining area, waterfall, and tennis court are dramatically lit at night to create a very romantic atmosphere. The sea and mountain views are quite lovely from the pool area but without a doubt the breathtaking 360 degree vista from the comfortably furnished roof terrace is unrivalled, particularly at sunset.
Whether you wish to simply chill out with a book next to the pool, take a relaxing soak in the Jacuzzi, barbecue at home, stroll to a beach front taverna for a freshly caught fish meal, explore the area on the villa’s mountain bikes, or work off the delicious Greek food playing tennis, the Eagle’s Nest Villa provides a luxurious and beautiful setting from which to do so.
