Nestled amidst the wild cliffs of Cape Koutoulas, with a majestic view of the sea, Villa San Matteo is the excellence of comfort and exclusivity. The fabulous architectural design offers a tribute to the beauty of the surrounding nature that can be fully absorbed both outside and inside thanks to the open concept.

The holiday villa has an eclectic décor with a chic bohemian ambiance. Cement floors, stone walls, and wooden ceilings provide a stylish look together with the sleek modern furnishings and natural color tones. The inviting open living with sliding glass walls gives access to splendid outdoor spaces overlooking the infinite blue of the sea. The covered veranda, the private pool with sundeck, and the shaded floating lounge deck, are ideal places to enjoy the sun, an aperitif, and idyllic sunsets.

The 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms - suitable for 8 people - are minimalistic but warm and attractively furnished with natural materials, wooden furniture, and eye-catching decorations.

From the moment you enter Villa San Matteo, time has a different dimension. Admire the incomparable beauty of nature from your comfortable lounge chair, cool off in the pool, and enjoy an outdoor lunch. More relaxation can be found on the nearby beach of Keramoti or visit the charming village of Livadia for a dinner in traditional taverns in local ambiance.

Villa San Matteo offers families and friends an unforgettable stay in luxury, style, and privacy.

Nestled near the charming village of Livadia on the west coast of Crete, Villa San Matteo is magnificently perched on a rocky hill. The west coast of Crete is considered one of the most breathtaking regions of the island. Beautiful sandy beaches (the nearest beach is Keramoti Bay at 2 km) and a rugged landscape with rich flora are to be discovered.

In the village of Livadia, buying food is still done the traditional way, a fantastic experience. Buy fish in the small harbor, or have dinner in a little local tavern. There is a mini-market in the village of Chrisoskalitissa (15-20 minutes’ drive) and larger supermarkets in the town of Kissamos (30 km).

Livadia lies on the edge of the European hiking trail E4 - a route of exceptional natural beauty where to enjoy the marvelous rugged coastline of Crete.

To do:

You fly to the international airport of Chania, which is 85 km from the house.
