Two steps away you will find two bedrooms (one with a large-size bed and ensuite bathroom and the other with two single beds and bathroom).
Just a ten minute/3km drive from villa Estella is the wonderful Triopetra Beach which is, in effect, two beaches separated by a small peninsula facing three majestic rocks rising up from the sea; overlooked by the ancient chapel of Profitis Ilias, Koumado has a few tavernas and sun shades for hire while the larger beach, Chatzi, offers more tavernas and famously picturesque sunsets. The fine sands wander westward for several kilometres offering magnificent views to the Lefki Ori mountains, great for a leisurely stroll or perhaps a scenic drive along the small coastal road which zig zags inland now and then around river valleys and other natural topography. En route, why not stop at sleepy Ligres, home to a couple of very highly regarded tavernas offering delicious local dishes in a delightfully unspoilt environment, or maybe the tiny hamlet of Agia Fotini with a couple of equally appealing tavernas and quiet bays ideal for snorkelling (the South coast of Crete famously offers some of the clearest water in Greece).
Averaging over 2800 hours of sunshine per year, southern Crete is a fascinating region with unique flora, fauna and birdlife (African swallows can be seen almost all year round) and so many wonderful beaches (Frangokastello,Plakias, Preveli and Aghia Gallini to name but a few). All of this, combined with the balmy weather means a visit to this laid back and soothing corner of Greece is sure to surprise and delight
