    Architectural masterpiece
    Including breakfast

Situated above the breaking waves and craggy coastline of western Crete, this luxury seaside retreat is a masterpiece of Mediterranean architecture. The entire house is designed to blur the boundaries between the inside and its beautiful natural surroundings. Completely without unnecessary decorations, the view of the rocky coast is emphasized from every room. The understated modern decor blends with the rugged, wild landscape. Wooden floors, contemporary furniture in light wood, and minimal design create a stylish whole.

With three bedrooms in the villa and a separate guest house (all with ensuite bathroom), the villa can accommodate up to eight guests; ideal for families with older children or friends who seek privacy and luxurious relaxation in an enchanting setting. Each bedroom is an independent oasis and features a private balcony or terrace with stunning sea views, two have direct access to the pool. The open living area includes a gourmet kitchen with indoor and outdoor dining table for eight people and a lounge area overlooking the sea that stretches to the horizon.

Start the day with a marvelous breakfast of local products. Cherish the tranquility of untouched nature, sink into endless blue and breathtaking views. Swim, stroll along the beach, walk the coastal paths or enjoy a boat ride in search of secluded beaches. In the evening, prepare delicious dishes on the BBQ or sample traditional meals in small local taverns nearby. At the end of the day, you can enjoy fascinating sunsets. Take a last dive in the pool by moonlight before going to sleep with the sound of the rushing waves in the background.

Villa Hermes, a five-star experience in unspoiled nature!

Villa Hermes is an elegant luxury villa with a modern design located near the charming and traditional village of Livadia, a 20-minute drive from the famous Elafonissi Beach. The town lies on the edge of the European hiking trail E4 - a route of exceptional natural beauty where you can enjoy the captivating untamed coastline of Crete.

In the village of Livadia, buying food is still done the traditional way, a fantastic experience. You can buy fish in the small harbor, but there are also some small local taverns. There is a mini market in the village of Chrisoskalitissa (15-20 minutes) and larger supermarkets in the town of Kissamos (30km).

Although the area around Elafonisi is best known for the gold pink beach with turquoise waters, there is much more to experience. Below are our suggestions:

You fly at Chania Airport (Crete), located 75 km from the villa.
