 The villa's pool size is 13 m x 6 m. The pool’s depth is 1,35m on  the shallow end and 2,20 m on the deep end. One of the largest  pools you can find in a private villa holiday rental in Crete. Hours of fun await you. Children just love the pool. It is really beautiful and ideal for lap swimming. You can dive into this pool  without any hesitation. Even enjoy swimming in the evening hours for the pool is automatically lit at night.

•   Pool Side Shaded Terrace
     One of the favorite spots for all guests is the villa's large terrace.  The large dining table is just right for poolside breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The bamboo garden chairs and table sitting arrangement is a quiet niche in the shade overlooking the beautiful pool. The barbeque is ready for "souvlaki" and lamb chops or whatever you decide to grill.
