An abundance of space

An equilibrium of vast outdoor and indoor space to live, play and explore, captures the essence of Crete with enchanting demeanour, personal touch in service and defining architecture. Veiled in privacy, embrace the intimacy of a small retreat with the endless choices of an expansive resort.


The limited, design-led hideaways balance comfort and finesse through craftmanship of naturally fallen wood, earth tones and domed ceilings that symbolize eternity. Carefully placed windows chase the sun’s continuous spectrum, allowing the light to enter freely and set the mood of the hour as hues of blue throughout the day turn into yellows, pinks, fiery reds, and oranges while the evening sets. Equipped with pool or jacuzzi, choose to stay in or spend the day at the hanging infinity pool or in the olive grove shade where the lawn meets the white sandy beach.
