A central staircase leads you up to the generous and atmospheric open-plan living, dining and kitchen area where one can fully appreciate the spectacular views through large picture windows and floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors. The light and fluttering living room is tastefully and elegantly furnished with a tropical theme in refreshing green colours.

A guest water closet and the utility room that sets the finishing touch of this level.
As a sign of respect to the extraordinary landscape, the owners have kept the beauty of nature and allowed it to speak for itself .As a result, a low maintenance garden was created by the astonishing natural rocky landscaped areas where most of the plot has been left in its natural state with year-round succulent plants and various types of Aloe planted all round the property. The olive trees would not be missed since they constitute a big part of Crete� s plant life. As a consequence, 12 mature olive trees grace the terraced plot. Breathtaking ocean and mountain views give a sense of infinity to the scenery as nothing blocks the view of endless green in addition to the feeling of privacy that provides an ataractic atmosphere that is appreciated from all angles of the stone-walled and fenced plot.
THE POOL TERRACE :
The area around the pool has been laid out with unique, non-slip tiles resembling a light wood deck. There is a tiled, pergola-covered seating area adjacent to the pool which is the perfect venue for outdoor dining and entertaining �round the pool. Since the amazing sea view is also visible from the ground level, an intimate seating area has been created in the far corner of the garden offering a serene and peaceful retreat where one can just sit with a good book and glass of wine enjoying the wonderful views and serenity of the surroundings.
THE PARKING AREA :
There is a long and wide driveway leading to the front of the house with a large parking area offering space for quite a number of visitor's parking.
