Polemarchi villa description

On the edge of the small rural community of Sfinari, the house stands on a large plot of land overlooking the sea, just where the little beach road from the village meets the coast and takes a left bend in the direction of the three fish tavernas, bordering the shingle beach a mere 600 metres stroll away.
Originally the home of a humble charcoal maker and inherited by his great, great grandson Pericles, a talented musician and violin player of some international repute, this erstwhile modest stone cottage has been miraculously transformed into a comfy villa furnished and equipped with air-conditioning in all 3 bedrooms plus flood lights set to illuminate the ocean at night in highly romantic fashion.


On the edge of Sfinari: The house stands on a large plot of land overlooking the sea, just where the little beach road from the village meets the coast and takes a sharp left bend in the direction of the three fish tavernas, bordering the shingle beach a mere 600 metres stroll away.
Originally the home of a humble charcoal maker and inherited by his great, great grandson Pericles, a talented musician and violin player of some international repute, this erstwhile modest stone cottage has been miraculously transformed into a comfy villa furnished and equipped with air-conditioning in all 3 bedrooms plus flood lights set to illuminate the ocean at night in highly romantic fashion.

Spacious terraces of crazy paving surround the house on three sides with a purpose built barbecue to the rear beyond which is a large area of lawn. To the side of the house is the 9m x 5m pool complete with a small children's pool and a remarkably handsome palm tree.

The front terrace overlooks the sea : And is the place to sit and enjoy the sunsets as well as alfresco meals accompanied by the ever present sound of the sea.
Inside, the house is furnished and decorated with some style. On the ground floor the spacious open plan living area has high beamed ceilings supported by the original thick stone walls. At one end is a well equipped kitchen and dining area with full cooker, microwave, dishwasher and capacious fridge freezer. Nearby is a large solid dining table and chairs, whilst to the front the sitting area next to the huge fireplace has lovely views out to the sea. There is a further attractive lounge area with 2 comfortable sofas, plus TV& DVD - and from here a staircase climbs to the first floor level and another small sitting area where patio doors open onto the generous terraces supplied with comfortable bamboo patio furniture to relax and enjoy the superb sea and mountain views.

Also at this level is the extraordinary and spacious: Master bedroom with queen size double bed and semi circular hydro massage bath as well as a smart en-suite shower room. Two sets of French windows lead to sea or mountain facing terraces where you can sit and watch the sun rise over the mountains or set, sinking into the sea.
Across the hallway at first floor level is a twin bedroom with a small en-suite shower room and patio doors to the front terrace. The third bedroom is double bedded and situated on the ground floor at the far end of the living area with windows overlooking the pool and the rear garden. There is an adjoining full bathroom which also includes a washing machine.
NB. The small road to the beach tavernas passes to the side of the property, so cars will pass by from time to time especially at weekends.

                                            We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Pericles. The villa/ village is quite remote so not an ideal place for touring Crete but, as this was my 15th visit to the island I've already seen quite a bit of it. My daughters and son-in-law were happy round the pool and with the snorkelling along the coast just outside the villa's garden. In the end we only visited Falasarna (perfect beach with tavernas and snack bars) and did some shopping at Platanos. Sfinari village provide enough basics, and everyone both in the little shops and in the three tavernas on the beach, were incredibly welcoming and friendly. It was almost a shock to visit Chania (I have been before) on the way back to the airport and be pestered so much by taverna staff and boat trip organisers. The villa itself was well appointed and had everything we needed. Problems with the air conditioning unit in one of the bedrooms continued in spite of attempts by the lovely owners to fix it but we had a really good holiday there.

There's a great taverna a short stroll away on the beach - the furthest one called Sunset Taverna. Good quality food and they frequently throw in a free apetizer and dessert very friendly and attentive service. " Julian Dakin - Jun 2009

                                            "This is a splendid villa right on the rocky foreshore with views from the extensive balcony across the sea to one side and the countryside to the mountains on the otherside. Its quiet but not isolated because there is a sandy beach and 3 tavernas within 500m. All the tavernas on the beach are good but the Sunset taverna (the furthest one) does the best food with lots of free 'extras' like hot grilled bread and olive tapinade to start and often a free dessert as well. The sound of the waves on the shingle will send you to sleep at night." C. Morris - Oct 2009

                                            it was grate hollyday - I've been there with my entire family - house is very beautiful , and well equipped! and it's position on the edge of the sea - wonderful - it seems you are at the end of the world! quite , peaceful, perfect. inside the house there were small problems - like lots of ants in the kitchen, the water from shower did not flew very well especially on the upper bathrooms, dish-washing machine not working at all and in one day the electricity was off - BUT - once again - it were small problems let's say comparing with the beautiful location. I would kindly recommend the property to families vacations. it is very important to have a car - because the house is really isolated. the major nearby attraction is fallasarna beach - with cristal clear weater and very quiet. so if you do not like lot's of other tourits nearby you can choose this place

                                            Recommended for: Sightseeing, romantic getaway, families with young children.

                                            We enjoyed a great 10 days in this great house. It had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. The pool is fantastic, and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was very welcome ! we enjoyed just sitting out front taking in the view of the sea and at night, the sunsets from the balcony. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Thankyou ! Nearby are a few tavernas for lunch and evening meals, and as long as you remember you're in Crete, there will be enough choice for you ! The house is realy Out of the Way, and if its nightlife you seek, pelase don't go ! The nearest large town , Kasstelli, is approx. 30 mins drive up the mountain roads, and MIND THE GOATS ! There are a number of large supermarkets there. The nearest village/town, has mini markets but no fresh meat really. You can get bread/snacks but not much else. Falassarna beach is approx 20mins drive and worth the effort ; get there before 10am for a guaranteed sunbed, and DO NOT GO AT THE WEEKEND ! Most of northern Crete will be there !

                                            Val Williams - May "We have just returned from a delightful holiday in Crete staying in Pericles Beach House. The Villa is superb and is an excellent accommodation. If you wish you can experience a sunset from the front verandah every evening. Our rep Diane was a lovely lady and extrememly helpful and we would certainly recommend this Villa if you wished to stay in this part of Crete."

                                            "For a relaxing holiday in a lovely location away from the hubbub of the world, this villa is the Biz. From the stunning views driving to it, to the superb accomodation it would be difficult to beat. The pool was wonderful, the sea views and location (with nightly dreamy sunsets) were totally relaxing for kids and adults alike. Well appointed for visiting the whole of the West Crete area it was a great choice. The holiday was easily booked, and well managed by Freelance and even with potential airport nightmare all travelling and transfers were pain free. Thank you Freelance and thank you Pericles and Christina you have a lovely villa. " Sarah - Aug 2008
