Heraklion, Heraklion, Center
This Villa sits upon a dramatic cliff that places it between the sea and sky that will take your breath away. The villa is above the beach of Lygaria, about 400 meters above the beach and only 15 minutes away by car. The villa surrounds the guest in light and sense of the glorious sea as it has existed for thousands of years. One can imagine the ancient ships of Oddesseus arriving in the distant horizon. The villa is surrounded by hilltops of olive groves in the distance and has a sense of isolated peace from the noise of the city, while being only 15 minutes away from the city of Heraklion and 5 minutes from the beach town of Agia Pelagia.
The villa is a very unique design and concept, meant to evoke the caldera architecture of classically famous Greek Island resorts.

There is a blue dome over the top of the house to evoke feelings of the Greek Island life and Greek soul.
The pool overlooks the cliff and sea and leaves the guest feeling like they are suspended in the heavens, enjoying the combination of the blue sea and blue skies and the Cretan sun. The night skies are just as impressive, with the starlight over the pool water that also has illuminated star lights within its waters.
