Phaedra is a luxury 3-bedroom stone built villa located in the area of Gerani, west of the town of Chania in Crete. Due to Its elevated position, this Alargo Handpicked Villa enjoys beautiful unobstructed views to the sea and the areas of Gerani, Maleme and Kolymbari. The villa is set in the heart of a private large olive grove also abundant in local herbs and various fruit trees.
One of the dominant elements of the villa’s exterior is the swimming pool and the adjacent wooden deck, a perfect spot to gaze at the stars during the warm summer nights in Crete. The pool is 45m2 and can be heated on demand at an extra charge and has a children’s section.
The villa’s interior is fresh, full of light and balances between wood and stone, its dominant structural elements. Modern furniture against colorful, bright walls and discreet traditional touches complete Phaedra’s beautiful interior.
Phaedra is developed on two levels with the ground floor hosting a comfortable living room, a large dining room, a fully equipped kitchen, a spacious double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a separate guest’s toilet. On the upper floor there are a double and a twin bedroom, both with en-suite bathrooms.
Built of local stone with thick walls, Phaedra naturally keeps the noise away while preserving a cool interior. After having soaked up the sun, the villa’s interior is a perfect hideaway from the summer heat in Crete before hitting the pool again.
Villa Phaedra is just a few minutes’ drive away from the beaches of Platanias, Gerani, Maleme and Kolymbari while it is less than 20km from Chania. It is located almost equidistant between the highway junctions of Platanias and Tavronitis which makes Phaedra the ideal starting point for road trips to the most beautiful areas of the western side of Crete such as the beaches of Elafonisi, Falasarna, Balos and the Old Town of Chania.
This beautiful handpicked by Alargo villa is named after Phaedra, who in Greek Mythology was the daughter of Minos and Pasiphae, the king and the queen of Crete respectively. Phaedra's name derives from the Greek word “phaidros”, which meant "bright".
