Villa Xerus

Privacy is the key word – private infinity pool, private sea access, private Davis Cup sized tennis court, private chapel, private boules court and private Relais et Chateau chef. The estate has magnificent grounds with sculptures, olive groves, bountiful local flowers, a protected Roman tank and multiple places to sit and take in the natural beauty. The main house is luxurious yet very much a family home.

  • 6 Bedrooms
  • Sleeps 12
  • Located in Elounda, Crete
