Overview & Facilities

About Villa Big Blue

We are excited to begin welcoming our esteemed guests to a newly-completed luxury and contemporary villa in Chania Crete, where our goal is to provide everything and more that you need to experience the most enjoyable and relaxing holiday of your life. Every building and amenity has been created with the highest possible standards in mind, with added pride at being the most prestigious luxury villa in Crete suitable for people with mobility limitations. Our dominant design theme throughout the development process has been to offer the highest level of luxury and comfort using contemporary minimalist design.

Villa Big Blue is a luxury villa with large private pool that resides within its own private grounds, and includes regularly manicured lawns, beautiful trees, sports and recreation spaces, a helipad and a private path that leads down to a secluded stretch of the enchanting Mediterranean Sea.

The large front gate leads down a driveway to a parking area that is suitable for five cars. Upon opening the solid wood front-door to this luxury villa in Crete you will immediately notice the picture window that inescapably draws your gaze toward the exquisite infinity pool and the enchanting sea beyond. The lobby entrance to this luxury villa in Crete is light, spacious and wheelchair accessible.

When you turn to the right you will be taken to a pair of double bedrooms, each with their own private terrace. Each bedroom has its own private inner lobby for maximum privacy. The north-facing bedroom has its own private shower, while the west-facing one includes both a private shower and complete bath.

When you turn to the left in the lobby of this luxury villa in Chania you will pass the central staircase and lift and enter the magnificently sprawling open-plan living area. The dining area is nearby on a raised platform with a large central table suitable for hosting up to 12 people. Right outside the window near the pool is a stunning liquid ornamental fire, a rare visual and aesthetic accent that speaks to the unparalleled luxury of this private Cretan villa.

The front of the central living room contains a large sitting area and a wall-mounted television. The guest toilet is situated at the back of this area. The two sets of large double-glazed doors, one next to the sitting area and the other by the kitchen, both lead to the spacious terrace where the barbecue, outside sitting area and covered lounge provide the perfect location to enjoy food, drinks, laughter and fun. The infinity pool and an adjoining children's area can be reached from this terrace.

The fully-equipped compact kitchen features a breakfast bar and all the modern conveniences that you can think of, including an American style fridge with freezer. The built-in water filtration system eliminates the need for purchasing bottled water for your stay, since it provides both fresh, chilled water and ice cubes.

From this area, there is a stone path that snakes through the surrounding natural terrain toward the private cove and helipad, where you are able to swim and enjoy the beach in absolute privacy. Both the covered lounge area and the infinity pool are west-facing, which means that you can relax and enjoy the exquisite Cretan sunsets after a day of exploring the island or playing on the beach.

Using either the lift or the central staircase leads you upstairs to the master suite on your right, with its deep bath and shower, twinned toilet and bidet, and a grand balcony facing to the west. The American king-sized bed ensures that all our guests get a comfortable night's sleep. Across from the master suite is another large double bedroom containing its own en-suite bathroom and a separate sink inside the bedroom. This room has a large balcony facing to the south that overlooks the living area.

To ensure your optimal enjoyment and relaxation we have provided numerous amenities and two additional bedrooms on the lower level. When you exit the lift, and turn to your right, there are two more bedrooms with en-suite showers. These last two lower level bedrooms stay cool throughout the day and have shared access to an additional terrace. Each room can be set as either a double or twin bedroom, depending on your party's needs. As you turn back toward the lobby, you will discover the wine cellar and wine fridge that feature some of the finest wines from the island and around the world for you to purchase. There is also a small gym, a home cinema and a massage and sauna area.

To show how much we appreciate all our guests and our commitment to ensuring that you experience absolute perfection during your holiday with us, we provide generous welcome baskets and a few added treats.

Location & Details


Within easy reach of the Big Blue Villa are gorgeous beaches, beautiful monasteries, historic locales, charming hamlets with quaint and cozy taverns and breathtaking views of the magnificent White Mountains, the enchanting Mediterranean and, of course, the jewel in the crown of Crete: The Old Town of Chania.

Nearest Town

The nearby village of Kounoupidiana, which also plays host to the Technical University of Crete, is approximately 15 minutes by car from the Big Blue Villa. It features well-stocked supermarkets, local tavernas, grocery shops, cafeterias and all manner of other stores.

Closest Beaches

While large sections of the Akrotiri coast are cliffs, there are still several beautiful beaches: Stavros, the filming location for the iconic Zorba movie, Kalathas, Marathi, Tersanas and Seitan Limania. The Big Blue Villa is situated very near to the beaches of Macherida, Stavros, Tersanas and Kalathas. These beaches are all generally well-protected by bays and remain unaffected by sea winds and the northern summer winds. Clean and well-maintained, these beaches have received official awards from the European Blue Flag each year.

The picturesque Macherida Beach is located on the Akrotiri peninsula's northwest side, only 14 kilometers (approximately 9 miles) from Chania. It is a hidden rocky cove, accessed by the sea or by foot after a brief walk. Macherida is the closest beach to the Big Blue Villa. It is an ideal cozy little beach, featuring turquoise waters and white sands. Macherida is not organised, so the closest amenities are located on Tersanas beach, which is around one half mile away. Close to this beach is the Macherida biotope, a habitat for numerous different species of wild animal that has the appearance of a crater with brackish white water gushing out.

The small and cozy sandy Tersanas Beach is only a few further meters down. Tersanas is the ideal choice for families who have young children thanks to the calm and shallow turquoise waters, the numerous shady spots beneath the huge tamarisk trees, the facilities (showers, sunbeds, umbrellas, etc.) and the compact size. For those family days on the beach that leave perfect lasting memories, nothing is more important than the safety and happiness of children. For parents, there is a little beach bar right on the water for relaxing with snacks and cold drinks without worrying about losing track of the kids. On some weekends, particularly during the month of August, the beach becomes a little busy due to its popularity among families.

Stavros Beach, Limanaki (little port), was once the stage for the creation of the famous 1960s film 'Zorba the Greek'. Now it is one of the favorite destinations for both visitors and locals. It is also the third nearest beach to the Big Blue Villa. The water at Stavros remains perfectly calm throughout the entire summer, and the thin, golden sand is a magnet for families who have young children. It is an ideal place to enjoy endless carefree days of playing, building castles and splashing around, while the parents get to swim in turquoise waters and soak up the sun. The enchanting scenery is complemented by the picturesque mountain background of Limanaki beach. Stavros beach is around 17km (approx. 10.5 miles) to the northeast of Chania in Crete located on the Akrotiri peninsula, and is easy to access with a car. Limanaki beach features umbrellas and sunbeds, with numerous delightful dining spots nearby, and if the children still are not worn out from playing on the beach, there is a playground nearby as well.

Kalathas Beach lies on the Akrotiri Peninsula's west side, around 10km (approx. 6 miles) to the east of Chania and about 5 km (3 miles) from the Big Blue Villa. This beautiful beach features fine gold sands and shallow turquoise waters that are ideal for children to splash around in. The beach features parasols, sun beds and dining facilities. The beach itself is long and wide, which means that you will never feel overcrowded. However, the months of July and August can get a bit busy. There are two additional secluded coves, one on the west and the other to the east of the main beach, which stay quiet throughout most of the year. Aside from the fine gold sands, the most distinctive characteristic of this beach is the small island just to its opposite that can be reached safely and easily by swimming. In addition, there are numerous tamarisk and palm trees next to the beach that offer generous amounts of valuable shade during the hot summer months.

Crete's White Mountains or 'Lefka Ori'

The White Mountains of Crete are undeniably spectacular, and create an alpine backdrop for the amazing beaches of Chania. That said, their most valuable characteristic is their role as a natural reservoir that provides water through the extended dry periods on the island. The steady flow from these mountains to the fruit orchards and olive groves during the Spring, Summer and Autumn months is what creates the copious greenery of the Chania region. The White Mountains' highest summit is Pachnes, which is 2,453 m (8,048 ft.) above sea level, but there are over 30 other summits that reach higher than 2,000 m (6,500 ft.). The Lefka Ori also features around 50 gorges, the most famous of which is the Samaria Gorge. The southern and central part of the Lefka Ori lie above 1,800 m (6,000 ft.), and resemble an exotic "moonscape". It is technically known as a high desert, which happens to be unique in all of the northern hemisphere. The Lefka Ori are the home of both of the caves in Greece that reach deeper than one half mile.


The Akrotiri region where the Big Blue Villa is situated is rich in beautiful monasteries that are open to visitors. The Gouverneto Monastery was built on a plateau at 260m (800ft.). It is among the oldest of all the monasteries in Crete, dating to the 15th Century. The Katholiko Monastery is situated 3km (1.8 miles) from the Gouverneto Monastery, and is thought to be the oldest of all the Cretan monasteries, dating somewhere between the 6th and 10th Centuries. The Holy Trinity, Agia Triada or Tzagarolon Monastery was built during the 16th century, and was named after the founders: Laurentius and Jeremiah Giagarolo, who were two brothers of a noble family from Venice.

Caves & Rock Formations

In addition to the beautiful monasteries and delightful beaches, the Akrotiri region features a number of caves and numerous fascinating formations of rock that are just begging to be explored. In the area of Stavros and Lera, there lies an ancient mountain cave that has been in use since the Neolithic Era. Evidence suggests that the cave was a sanctuary from the end of the Bronze Age to the Classical Greek Era. Arkalospilio is situated 3km (1.8 miles) from the Gouverneto Monastery. The Aherospilio Cave and Agios Loannis are close to the Katholiko Monastery. At the Arkoudospilios Cave (The Virgin Mary Arkoudiotissa or the Cave of the Bear), near the Gouverneto Monastery in Akrotiri, there is a unique stalagmite that resembles a bear, a reservoir of holy water and a little church that is dedicated to the Ypapanti, all of which are worth the trip to see. Local legends suggest that the Virgin Mary (to whom there is a chapel dedicated inside the cave) turned the bear into stone after it was caught drinking the water that belonged to the monks. Archaeologists suggest that the cave served as a shrine to Artemis during antiquity, who could transform in to the shape of a bear.

Chania Old Town

Last, but far from the least, the Big Blue Villa is situated around 15km (9.3 miles) from Chania, which is the regional capital and an ideal destination all-year-round. While a lot of travelers think that the city hibernates after the busy Summer months, it stays bustling in an atmospheric way. Chania is located in the west of the island, and is among the most character-filled and picturesque of all the cities in Crete. It lies along the island's north coast, around 70 km (44 miles) to the west of Rethymnon and 145 km (90 miles) to the west of Heraklion.

Despite suffering heavy bombing during the Second World War, the Old Town of Chania is still considered the most beautiful of all the urban districts of Crete. The little streets form an enchanting labyrinth and create a unique atmosphere. These streets lead down to the impressive Venetian Harbour, with its defining Lighthouse, which is Chania's long-standing emblem.

There are numerous restored Venetian townhouses that have been converted into upscale hotels that are filled with character, while numerous partially-restored Venetian buildings now house lavish bars and sophisticated restaurants. This combination creates a magical atmosphere during the nighttime, when the sky is filled with stars. The city is known to be colourful, lively and cosmopolitan during the Summer months, and romantic, nostalgic and cozy in the winter.

Chania Old Town is also vibrant during daytime, yet small enough to be explored within a day or two. Walking through its ancient narrow streets, you can easily lose track of the time. Its historical feel is treasured and cared for. Chania's old town still accommodates locals on top of all the visitors, and it is rejuvenated and renovated every year. The large number of cafes, shops, restaurants and tavernas is a big draw for the vibrant centre, yet it manages to blend together the locals, nearby villagers, overseas travelers and students, traders and Athenian businessmen. There exists a healthy vibe that becomes increasingly apparent during the afternoon, when the local families and visitors take their strolls along the harbour to share in the same amazing sea breeze and breathtaking views. Chania manages to keep history alive for people to live through each and every day.
