Villa Bellelen is a stunning villa situated on a hillside near Agios Nikolaos on the island of Crete, just seven kilometers from Elounda. Newly built in 2016, the luminous home exudes the minimalist elegance of ancient Cycladic architecture, while being outfitted with exquisite luxury comforts. The villa commands panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea, Cretan coast, and neighboring islands, and is within walking distance of two enchanting beaches. Five bedroom suites and ample aflresco and interior living areas form an ideal vacation rental for families, groups of friends, and destination wedding guests.
The villa's main terrace features a sparkling swimming pool framed in smooth stone and lined with elegant sun loungers. A dining table also adjoins the pool in the shade of a lovely pergola, while an upper-level terrace of cotto tile offers spacious lounge areas for beholding the extraoradinary vistas. Beautifully masoned stone walls and lush green lawns evoke the island's rustic antquity.
Large glass doors open from the pool terrace to the villa's interior, filling the home with the sea's light and breeze. Kindle a fire in the salon and sip a fine wine on sofas overlooking the coastal panorama. Cook in the fully equipped kitchen and gather in the formal dining area for memorable feasts with loved-ones. The villa's understated décor includes beautiful touches of color-purple, green, aquamarine-that suffuse the space with a natural vibrancy, harmonizing with the fertile vineyards and orchards of the Greek islands. A telescope invites you to channel the spirit of ancient astronomers, while a sauna welcomes therapeutic sweats before another delicious plunge in the pool.
Four or the villa's five bedrooms feature queen beds, while the fifth has three singles. Each of the two master suites enjoys an ensuite bathroom and opens to a terrace with sea view, while the other two queen bedrooms share a bathroom and open to the pool terrace. Here again, the luminous minimalism evokes ancient roots while accentuating the vital beauty of the present.
From this sublime perch, you're within walking distance of both Havania and Candia Beaches, while the nearby villages of Agios Nikolaos, Lato, Gournia, and Elounda offer myriad charms both ancient and modern.
