Villa Sendal

12 guests · 6 bedrooms · 6.5 baths
Sea views stretch to the once-mysterious island of Spinalonga from this sun-splashed hilltop villa on Crete. Its sleek contemporary design, all open-plan layouts and clean-lined surfaces, is balanced by thoughtful touches like a shaded outdoor dining area and a 2-level pool. Take a ferry from the town of Plaka to visit Spinalonga, once occupied by the Ottomans and later a leper colony.
Splash with kids in the shallow end of the heated saltwater infinity pool or do laps along its full length, which parallels the house. Pergola-covered living and dining areas with a barbecue are a welcome respite when the sun is at full height, but there’s also a separate terrace stocked with sunbeds down a flight of steps.
The villa offers up Aegean views from the entrance, with the water coming into sight as you follow a staircase down to the open-concept great room. Blond wood and blue upholstery make the living and dining areas feel bright and beachy, and the adjacent fully equipped kitchen opens to the dining area on the terrace.
While many visitors come to Crete for the coastal-resort vibe, the island also has plenty of wild scenery and fascinating history. Get into the scene in Agios Nikolaos, 20 minutes away, plan a hike through Samaria Gorge, and spend a day wandering the ruins of a village built by people banished to the island of Spinalonga.
