Overview & Facilities

About Joy Villa

Joy delights in Villa Joy. Experience it yourself in Chania, minutes from the heart of town or the golden sand beaches of the West coast of Crete. Exclusive style, sophisticated architecture and enviable service may make it challenging for you to leave your comfort and experience all the island remains to offer.

At the top of a hill, the villa is built in five semi levels sparing no luxury. On the outside, the crystal private pool is surrounded by a lush garden looking out to the view of the town and sea. A series of tended terraces lead up the hilly landscape to the house and pool. The large pool is exclusive to Villa Joy dwellers' pleasure. It is divided into two sections - a circular shallower jacuzzi whose water cascades into the larger almond shaped deeper section. The poolside and garden offer spots both of cool shade and radiant light, as well as privacy and infinite view.

Light and views of blue enter through the central light dome of the villa and the floor to ceiling windows. The living and dining areas combine simplicity and sumptuousness. The 5 bedrooms have absolute privacy from each other due to the intricate plan of the villa.

Anything within reason, and sometimes beyond, can be provided for you at Villa Joy. The unique concierge service is yours to take advantage of. Groceries, fresh bread, fish, organic produce,
as well as wine and spirits can be brought to your doorstep. Meals can be delivered or be prepared for you on site by our skilled Private Chef. The villa has a comfortable gym including a treadmill and multi-gym that opens out to the garden and poolside. Personal trainers, including yoga, tai chi, martial arts and dance instructors, can be brought in upon request. Sailing excursions, Greek wine tasting, as well as culinary seminars on the renowned Cretan Diet are other favourites.

Wedding Planning, Renewal of Vows, Commitment Ceremonies and intimate catered receptions can be organised with your wants in mind. Family reunions are perfectly hosted in the villa with its stylish comfort and home atmosphere. There may be no better place to build enduring memories with the ones you love than at Villa Joy.

Location & Details

 

With less than a 5-10 minute drive from the historical city of Chania, you will find the areas of Galatas and Daratos, which both used to be small villages on the hillside overlooking the sea. The areas remain very popular with locals as with visitors, providing some stunning beaches nearby. The lower parts of the areas are often referred to as Kato, meaning down or below. As such you will find both Kato Galatas and Kato Daratos in the same areas.

As the areas are connected with regular bus services to the city of Chania (5km), it has become a very popular residential area with a quiet atmosphere, yet hinting a rural feel to it with olive trees and quaint village shops. There are also a few restaurants and tavernas worth visiting in these areas, as to shopping opportunities closer to the old national road.

Because of its close proximity to Chania, the nightlife is never far away. The beaches of Kalamaki and Agii Apostoli also serves several cafés, both on and off the beach. The beaches are very popular with both visitors and locals and certainly worth a visit.

The "palaces" of Minoan Crete are believed to have revealed the earliest examples of architecture in Europe. Drawing on that inspiration, three distinguished architects designed Villa Joy, in a simple yet highly evocative language of polar opposites - black and white, light and shade, glass and concrete. Contemporary architecture in a land steeped in history. The seductive notion of transparency, combined with the labyrinthine plan, and subtle allusions to Minoan architectural elements intrigue discerning taste, while the spectacular view and setting make the structure an unparalleled accommodation in Western Crete, and a joy to all the senses.

Light and views of blue enter through the central light dome of the villa and the floor to ceiling windows. The living and dining areas combine simplicity and sumptuousness. The 5 bedrooms have absolute privacy from each other due to the intricate plan of the villa.
