Polemarchi villa description

Near the base of the Roudapou Peninsular and just 5 mins drive from the little harbour side town of Kolymbari, the village of Ravdoucha is split in two halves, with a few houses and a rather good taverna down by the pebbly cove (great for snorkelling) and the other half perched on the hillside enjoying commanding views down to the coast. It is in this upper part of the village that Villa Ravdoucha is located, set in a sizeable private plot on the perimeter of a small and select group of similar Villas.

Stamped with the personality of its owner, who has a glass shop, the Villa has modern clean lines and glistening uncluttered finishings.

At entrance level, a spacious open plan living area, furnished with comfortable cream sofas, features full height sliding doors opening to a covered patio where the owner has created a unique outdoor area with high stools and ‘dining bar’ facing towards the west, to make the most of the sunsets. A large dining table divides the living area from the kitchen, well equipped with ample counter space, full oven, dishwasher and full fridge/freezer.

There is also a shower room at ground floor level and a single bedroom, which has French doors opening to the front patio.

On first floor level, the master double bedroom has an ensuite shower room, and there is a family bathroom just across the landing from the twin bedroom. Both bedrooms have French doors that lead out to a covered balcony furnished with cane sofas, and spectacular views of the village of Ravdoucha and the sea view beyond. The innovative owner has cleverly designed tracked windows that can enclose the balcony when there’s a breeze blowing or can be folded completely out of the way.

A few steps from the lower covered terrace area bring you to the poolside, where a 4.9m x 3.5m pool provides ample opportunity to cool down or for the children to splash about. At the rear of the pool area is a covered BBQ and dining area and a nearby swing for the little ones on the grass nearby.

In short, the villa offers a very high standard of living, great views in a very rural area. Exploring the far west of Crete from this area is easy as the highway is just 10mins drive the villa. The famous sandy beach of Falassarna is about 25mins away, the fabulous beach of Elafonissi about an hour’s drive. Conveniently closer at hand, the village of Kolymbari has a supermarket, butcher, baker, bank, several tavernas, a harbour and a long pebbly beach just a 5 min drive away.

                                  Ravdoucha, Crete

                                  Just over half an hour drive from Chania and 5 to 10 minutes from the main coast road, the village of Ravdoucha bestrides the high ground of two small hills on the rugged Rodopou Peninsula and offers a choice of gorgeous sea or mountain views.

                                  Although well off the beaten tourist track, the village is nevertheless well known to discerning Cretan foodies due to the excellent reputation of the local fish taverna, hidden away amongst the olive groves near the coast, some 2km from the village itself. The taverna borders the picturesque pebbly beach, fresh local fish features on the menu as well as traditional meaty Cretan dishes cooked in time honoured fashion.

                                  Although there are no shops in the village there are three simple cafenions, one run by Georgos and Eleni a truly charming and obliging couple. Here you can sit quietly and enjoy a coffee or perhaps, a local aperitif with peanuts whilst watching the world go by, such as it is... Alternatively Georgos or Eleni, will be happy to sell you beer, wine or soft drinks to take away, but even more delighted if you buy their own, home produced fresh eggs and fresh goats milk. However, if you are not quite enough of a Cretophile to have your cornflakes sprinkled with the latter, fresh cows milk and fresh bread are available, if you order them the previous day.

                                  For more sophisticated shopping and a good choice of waterfront tavernas, the seaside village of Kolymbari is no more than a10 minute drive away. Here you will find two large supermarket as well as a bank, bakery and butchers shop, plus a chemist and post office for good measure.

                                  Finally, its worth mentioning that en-route to the Ravdoucha beach are two small churches, Agia Marina and Timiou Stavros, who celebrate their Saints days on 17th July and 14th September respectively.

                                  In Ravdoucha itself, the church of Agia Triada dates back to the 16th Century and fortunately, has its Saints day during the winter months.
