About Cathy Butler
Cathy and Simon Butler live and work in Cambridge UK. Cathy heads up open and custom programmes at Churchill College's Moeller Centre educational venue, Simon leads a team of engineers working on an enterprise cryptography solution. Both northerners originally (Cathy from Scotland, Simon from North Yorkshire) Cathy and Simon prefer a more rugged landscape than is provided by the Cambridgeshire fens which is partly why they decided to build Villa Adrasteia in the wilds of western Crete.
Cathy Butler purchased this villa in 2012
Why Cathy Butler chose Vamos
We arrived in Douliana for the first time in August 2003, our first "hot" holiday with our two young children Gabriel and Verity. We had a perfect family holiday staying in Villa Ionaida and decided that we might like to build something similar for ourselves at some point. A series of family holidays followed in various parts of western Crete but in the end we decided that Douliana provided a nice combination in terms of location, views, peace and quiet. We bought the land in 2009 and completed the main phase of construction by 2012.
What makes this villa unique
Villa Adrasteia is a large, spacious villa spread across three levels with panoramic views of the White Mountains to the south and a glimpse of the blue Aegean to the north. The living spaces in and around the villa provide plenty of room to socialise whilst also providing quieter places if you want to get away from the crowd. The villa is a short walk from the charming village of Douliana which is unusual in that there is no through-road, making the village exceptionally quiet even by Cretan standards.
