Overview & Facilities

About Ianira Villa

Villa Ianira is a luxury holiday rental villa located outside the seaside village of Kolymbari, just 25 minutes from the picture-perfect, historic town of Chania in western Crete. The property sits on 3000 m² of olive groves, fruit trees, organic vegetable gardens and lush green lawns atop a hill that affords sweeping views of the crystal clear waters of the Sea of Crete on one side and the majestic White Mountains on the other.

Villa Ianira was built to comply with the standards of bioclimatic architecture in its functioning, while its design, layout and decor were meticulously thought through so that the home would harmoniously blend in with its natural surroundings. The property offers everything that visitors could possibly anticipate in view of the care and attention to detail given to its construction: absolute comfort and privacy, soothing elegant interiors, stunning outdoor facilities and top-of-the-line amenities and furnishings, all complemented by a number of superior quality services from which to choose.

Villa Ianira’s interior boasts four bedrooms accommodating up to 8 guests, an impressive entrance area, bright and airy living room, spacious dining room and high-design, high-function kitchen. The stylish aesthetics and clever layout are complemented by a wine cellar fully stocked with local Cretan and other Greek wines, a gym, two spectacular infinity pools, a children’s playground and an organic vegetable garden that guests are encouraged to use and enjoy, making Villa Ianira a truly unique holiday villa.

Upon walking through the arched doorway that leads to the spacious entry hall, the first thing visitors notice is the aura of serenity permeating the entire home: the soft, earth tones that grace the walls, extra high ceilings and furnishings, the large French windows that allow the outdoor hues to playfully dance off the walls, the local Cretan stone and wide-planked hard wood floors, the fine art and decorative objects tastefully placed throughout.

The ground floor of the three-level Villa Ianira boasts a spacious living room complete with energy-efficient fireplace and large, comfortable sofas that gaze out onto the well-tended gardens and sea beyond. Directly off the living room are 2 outdoor patios fully outfitted with plush, built-in sofas and teak and rattan patio furniture. Next to the living room sits the dining room and its stylishly oversized wooden table with comfortable seating for 8. From the dining room and through a gorgeous, hand-crafted stone arch is the ground floor’s masterpiece: its spectacular, extremely functional Marchi designer kitchen, a room lovingly created to inspire and motivate guests to use their gastronimical creativity for unforgettable Cretan holiday feasts. The main floor is also where two of the villa’s three bedrooms are located, each with its own en suite bathroom. All of the villa’s bedrooms boast the COCO-MAT signature series of “4-layer” beds and individually adjustable pillows as well as the finest quality cotton/satin blend bed linens. Bathrooms are well-appointed, stocked with fluffy bath towels, robes and exclusive all-natural bath products, among other amenities.

On the first floor, the Villa Ianira’s master bedroom with its en suite bathroom, outfitted in the same elegant, high-quality bed and bath products as the home’s other two bedrooms.

The villa’s theme of stylish, natural elegance continues outdoors, with its covered patios, ideal for peaceful relaxation and unwinding, that lead from the house to the gardens and beyond. A 60 m² infinity pool for adults and 12 m² children’s pool (0.50 cm deep) beckon guests to take a dip, wash off in the outdoor shower and then relax in the covered, poolside lounge area. Further on is the property’s “outdoor kitchen”, complete with wood-burning oven and a shaded BBQ area, and perfect for casual afternoon or evening gatherings. As a result of the villa owners’ passion for landscaping, the Villa Ianira is literally immersed in nature: organic vegetable patches, fruit trees, Mediterranean aromatic plants, olive groves and a lush emerald lawn envelop the property and make sitting outdoors a treat for the senses.

Location & Details

 

Villa Ianira is located on a hillside in western Crete near the village of Kolymbari (aka Kolympari or Kolimvari), a coastal settlement of about 1,000 residents, nestled between sea and cliffs at the foot of the Rodopou peninsula. Its location is 25 km to the west of Chania town, a 25-minute drive along the National Road.

Kolymbari has retained its local colour and traditional lifestyle. Visitors have the chance to mingle with locals, shop for fresh seasonal produce in small food markets, stroll along the coastal promenade and savour tasty local specialties at cosy family-run eateries and taverns, some of which are ideally situated close to the waterfront. An early wake up could reward you with the freshest of the day’s catch from fishermen selling their goods along the village’s quaint little harbour, and at a good deal to boot. The village’s long beach is a mixture of sand and pebble, with some organized spots offering sun beds, umbrellas and a variety of water sports, and plenty of quiet stretches, should you prefer to escape to a sun-drenched world of your own. In Kolymbari you can find all necessary conveniences, including a supermarket, pharmacy, post office, bakery, bank, ATMs, petrol station and a doctor’s office. There is frequent bus service to and from the town of Chania as well as a taxi stand.

For a little more excitement, nightlife and shopping, the resort of Platanias is less than 10 minutes away by car, while the town of Chania, just 25 minutes away, offers an even greater variety. Villa Ianira's location is a good base for exploring the area’s picturesque inland villages and some of the island’s best beaches that are conveniently located nearby. For outdoor enthusiasts, there are scenic trails and country roads to explore either on foot or by mountain bike.

Kolymbari is an ideal starting point for visits to a few arguably of the most beautiful beaches not only in Crete but the whole of Greece, namely, Balos, Falasarna and Elafonisi.

Balos, a relatively little known paradise on earth is located on the rugged unspoiled northwesternmost point of Crete, on the Gramvoussa Cape. The white sand and the crystal clear turquoise water classify Balos as one of the most beautiful beaches in Crete. Reaching this beach is an adventure in itself but once you get there either by boat or by the track road from Kaliviani village you will be rewarded by the magnificence of the Cretan nature.

Falasarna, on the west coast of Crete, is one of the most beautiful beaches in Greece. It has always being among the top winners of the contests for the most beautiful beaches in Europe and recently has been ranked by CNN as the 100th most beautiful beach of the world. Fine white sand, crystal-clear turquoise water and rather spacious, it rarely becomes overcrowded. Being located on the west shore of Crete, Falasarna truly fascinates the visitors with magnificent sunsets, arguably and admittedly among the most beautiful in Crete. Hence if we could give you a small tip it would definitely be this one: Don’t leave until the sun is set! A destination that does worth the journey.

Elafonisi is located in the southwest end of Crete, about 50km from Villa Ianira. A place of an exceptional natural beauty which has been included in the Natura 2000 Environmental Protection Program. It is generally agreed that Elafonisi is among the top 5 beaches of Crete, for many simply the top. Many contests and travelers’ forums have placed Elafonisi among the best beaches of not only Greece but the whole world. What characterises the area of Elafonisi and makes it such an exotic place, are the little sand islets formed, the shallow turquoise waters of the sea, which at a point looks like a lagoon, and certainly the fine white sand which in some light displays tones of pink glow, believed to be from the thousands of broken seashells. Elafonisi gives the unique feeling of being in an exotic paradise whilst having a Mediterranean holiday. A place that will certainly not disappoint you.
