This June the luxury resort of Daios Cove, Crete, is opening ‘The Mansion’ – a new exclusive villa which comes complete with exquisite design, outdoor heated pool, indoor heated pool, tranquil in-house spa and staff quarters.
The three-bedroom hideaway, which is set on the north-east shores of the island, will be available for guests to rent from 2nd June, setting a new benchmark for villa accommodation on this stunning Greek island.
The new villa’s state-of-the-art design takes inspiration from the spectacular setting of Daios Cove. Located on the tranquil turquoise shores of Crete in its own private cove, The Mansion’s design and layout make the most of the setting’s abundant natural light – huge floor to ceiling windows line the airy building, meaning guests can enjoy the incredible views from almost any point in the room.
The interiors are fresh and modern – light, natural woods line the floors, white marble creates an incredible sense of space, while glass also dominates. The overall space is an impressive 600sqm set over three levels, with outdoor space making up 300sqm. Designer furniture has been meticulously chosen and includes unique pieces from world-famous contemporary brands B&B Italia and Maxalto. Natural light floods the property, while designer lighting from Catellani & Smith and Occhio provides warm and intimate lighting for cocktails and private evening meals.
Bang & Olufsen speakers are discreetly placed through the property to provide a soundtrack to cooking, sunbathing or working out. The Mansion comes compete with staff quarters, should guests wish to make the most of Crete’s glorious natural produce and cuisine by leaving a chef to combine delicious fresh ingredients in the fully equipped kitchen. If holiday makers prefer getting the opportunity to cook themselves, the modern, clean-cut kitchen boasts a clutter-free design.
The Master Bedroom
While the property boasts three beautiful bedrooms, two with walk-in wardrobes, the master bedroom is a particularly impressive thanks to its ceiling-high windows with some of the best views on the island, looking out over the azure water of the Aegean sea and sun-drenched cliffs surrounding the property.
Fresh white furniture and cotton linen creates an immediate sense of calm, while the bathroom is a sanctuary, with twin sinks, a deep bathtub perfect for a relaxing bubble bath and huge shower cabin – all of which come with the mesmerising views the Mansion is sure to be famous for.
Guests looking to really relax will adore the Mansion’s own fully equipped spa. Beautiful tiles line the wall of the Starpool steam bath and 20sqm-metre heated indoor pool, while the sauna is spacious enough for several guests to enjoy at the same time.
