The space

Villa-Ikaros is a 2 bedrooms villa, located just outside the beautiful village Plaka in Apokoronas. It combines a traditional character with all the modern comforts, while standing isolated in a 5000sqm private green hill. This unique site, with the unobstructed views and the absolute privacy, is the ideal place for truly magical vacation. Far away from the sounds of the city and all the unwanted disturbances, let yourself in a landscape, in which the colors and scents create the scenery of an earthly paradise.

Apokoronas district, in the western part of Crete, is one of the most beautiful and greenest regions of the island and a perfect starting point for the traveler who seeks an escape from the ordinary. Lying at the foot of Lefka Ori(White Mountains), the region is described by its pure nature, providing the visitor the opportunity to explore untouched natural landscapes, such as Kourna’s lake and Kiliaris River. Apokoronas, with its diverse and dynamic character, with its endless sandy beaches and the picturesque villages, the mountains, the amazing canyons and the fresh water springs, is sure to charm you.

At 1.5km from the villa lies the picturesque fishing village of Almyrida, with its clear blue waters and beautiful beaches. Here you can find fresh fish taverns, cafes, beach bars, ATM, pharmacy and even diving school. 5km away is Kalyves, a larger village with post office, bank and super market. 6km away is Vamos, the historical capital of the municipality of Apokoronas, with a medical center, open all the time.

Alexis and his family were very accommodating during our stay. Their property is beautiful and the view from the villa was amazing. The premises were unique and the grounds were clean. It was a bit of a drive to get the property but villa is highly recommended especially if one desires peace and quiet.

Nous avons passé une semaine à la villa Ikaros. La villa est magnifique, parfaitement équipée et encore plus belle que sur les photos. Quant à la vue, difficile de faire mieux (vue sur la baie et les montagnes) ! Alexis est un hôte très attentionné et accueillant. Il a répondu très rapidement à nos mails et nous a donné toutes les informations nécessaires à notre arrivée. Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Stef, le frère d'Alexis, et avons apprécié toutes les petites attentions (fruits et pain frais, bouteille de vin, miel, jus de fruits, portable avec carte prépayée,...). Nous recommandons vivement cette villa et espérons y revenir lors de notre prochain séjour en Crète. Prévoir une voiture.

Hi, my name is Alexis and I come from Chania, Crete. I love travelling and meeting new people, living new experiences and coming in contact with different cultures. I have lived in Thessaloniki (Greece), Lisbon (Portugal) and Rotterdam (Netherlands) in the past. However, I decided to move back to my home town, as I understood that I am in love with this place and I want to make something creative here.
I will be glad to welcome you in my place, in order to enjoy it through all your senses.
