This majestic home is nestled within an architecturally designed new holiday complex blending the best of original features and design aesthetic with top-grade contemporary comfort. Set with a mountain range backdrop, this home in a nod to the local style offers an intriguing facade of ochre-toned flat roof architecture and floor to ceiling glass along with sedate covered veranda space for a fusion of indoor and outdoor living.
Executed with impeccable, understated style, quality abounds throughout. This is every inch the charming Mediterranean idyll. Guests will be able to recline next to the pool on pristine day beds or enjoy a sumptuous al fresco meal.
Ariadne Luxury Villa comprises two elegantly finished bedrooms, with hotel grade quality linen and designer finessed interiors; throughout these homes, natural raw materials, dark timbers and local stone blend with the sleekest and contemporary styling, for a vivacious yet discreetly luxurious abode.
Guests can truly enjoy the best of both worlds at this bright and seductive home; sleek and airy open plan living, soft charcoal grey sofas and top of the range kitchen along with all the privacy of an independent house, set into a broader resort complex and all the convenience that this offers.
Ariadne Luxury Villa offers cool, chic lateral and open plan spaces with marble floors, designer lighting and opulent bathrooms whether it be the privacy of a secluded home with its shaded dining veranda and pool, or, the resort facilities which range from children’s entertainment, fine dining in the restaurant, dazzling communal pool with lounge area and cocktail bar, children amusement and water sports.
Guests can genuinely wind down the pace and escape the bustle of the crowds, opting between tranquil seclusion or delightful social spaces, exotic cocktails against the swaying breeze of the palm trees and sparkling sea views, stunning Asian fusion cuisine or an indulgent afternoon at the spa for a spot of pampering.
Surrounding the resort are rustic, rolling hills, fragrant olive groves and wooded mountains, as well as the glistening coastline. Villa Lyko imbibes a little haven of style and luxury, within unspoilt and tranquil nature. Whether it be a romantic meal for two, a fun and lively family breakfast after a morning swim, or kicking back in the entertainment suite with a game of pool, this resort has it covered!
Guests can then retreat to the oasis of peace that is the villa, and sleep soundly between the crisp cotton sheets in air-conditioned serenity. The safety of resort is offset by the total privacy of the guests’ own home, and when the mood strikes, the little-added comforts such as ordering room service meals will hit the right note.
Ariadne Luxury Villa offers a happy, charismatic home finished with impeccably styled interiors, chic and understated glamour with uncompromising quality, within a luxurious resort set-up on the breathtaking Crete coastline.
This region is known for its rich archaeological past, as well as its intriguing military history (it was a naturally well-placed defence point, jutting out as a rocky islet.) On the resort a leisure and art complex will be utilized for various activities; concerts and other public events will be organized and take place throughout the season. Many of the activities will revolve around a curated program of special events. The facility will also have indoor features, programs, workshops and courses run for kids, teenagers and families.
Visitors can access Spinalonga by boat from Agios Nikolaos, Elounda or Plaka. From Elounda harbour, there is a boat to Spinalonga every thirty minutes throughout the summer. It takes about twenty minutes to reach the island, while the sea voyage sometimes includes a sail around the Kolokytha Peninsula.
There are also boats from the little village of Plaka just north of Elounda. The trip from here is shorter, taking about seven minutes. Elounda Village, once a picturesque fishing village in lovely Mirabello Bay is today a stylish and crucial low holiday destination, offering just enough life for a sense of local flavour, yet not so much it becomes saturated with tourists.
It offers a spectacular coastline, shaded crystal ceases and clear waters. Many of the little surrounding villages are worth visiting: Mavrikiano, Plaka, Skisma, offering a trip inland through the mountains and a window into traditional Crete life.
