Terra Minoika Villas dominate on a hill full of aromatic plants to the village of Kato Zakros, at an altitude of 40 m above the sea surface and 300m away from the seaside, with a panoramic, unhindered view to the bay and to all the sights of the area.
A stone creation, a hymn to the traditional Greek architecture, built totally by native stone, closely tied to the environment, a surprise, even to the experts, due not only to its unique construction but also due to the architectural inspirations of its creators as well.
No one could ever imagine that almost 3,000 square meters (sq.m.) of native, granite hardferrous-stone would be responsible for an environment so delicate to the senses!..
The valley, overgrown with olive-trees, vineyards and gardens, The ramshackled carcass of the Minoan Palace, The fishing boats and the seagulls, proud ornaments of a gulf, The beach with the picturesque fish-taverns, The mountains, full of wild natural beauty, scenting the unique fragrances of the herbs ofthe Cretan soil and.. The cloudless sky which meets the sea in an eternal erotic embrace, making a composition of colours, sounds and fragrances, a conjectural crescendo that the creator conceived through divine inspiration but also a composition carefully decorated by a tactful human presence, are Images.. that hardly quench the senses, but one can rejoice them either by simply gazingthrough the windows which adorn every apartment like beautiful paintings or by comfortably seated at the terraces and the countless spots of Terra Minoika (Minoan Land) dedicated toreverie.
The Terra Minoika Villas consist of 3 standard villas and 2 superior villas.
Villas offer a veranda with pergola and stunningly beautiful view to all the bay, queen size bed with handbuild wooden frame or queen size bed with wrought iron headboard, and a good sized bathroom in traditional cretan style with large shower unit and plenty of hot water.
