This rural stone farmhouse rests in the tranquil foothills of the White Mountains in Maza, Crete. Lovingly renovated in traditional Cretan style, it’s an inviting mix of stone craftsmanship and natural wooden beams. Gorgeous Greek fabrics and artefacts add to its authenticity with stone archways and fireplace.
Staying at Villa Kontis is great for those seeking solace away from it all. This delightful three-bedroom villa is fringed with bright pink bougainvillea and fir trees. A perfectly manicured lawn hosts a spacious lap pool. Dine under the shade in the garden canopy. On the upper level there is also a private breakfast set up on the patio.
Enter the villa through warm, wooden doors. Natural beams adorn the ceiling and stone craftsmanship is visible throughout, making Villa Kontis feel like your own private, country home. Carved beds with brightly coloured throws offer a peaceful way to end the day.
It’s only a few minutes’ walk down to the quaint village square in Maza with sleepy lanes and local tavernas. Receive a warm welcome and some traditional Raki if you’re lucky. As Greece’s largest island, Crete is a mixed bags of delights for everyone to enjoy so we’d advise you to go explore!
