About Villa Cien

Villa Cien is stunning on many fronts. This luxury villa is large enough to sleep 16 guests across its eight bedrooms. Its modern architecture also sets it apart from other villas in Crete. And finally there's its location: boasting a panoramic hillside location in the beautiful Cretan countryside, you'll be ideally placed to enjoy the delights of the nearby popular town of Elounda.

Sitting serenely on an estate of 1.4 hectares of landscaped gardens and olive tree terraces, the delicate scents of lavender create a perfectly peaceful atmosphere in the villa's surrounds. You'll have this place to yourself: neighbours are few and far between. But if you are travelling with a large group you can accommodate any overspill in the equally delightful sister property of Villa Cien, which hosts 12 guests across six bedrooms.

Villa Cien’s contemporary natural stone design fits in beautifully with the rugged hillside terrain. Its bedrooms and airy living spaces are split across three storeys. Its superbly furnished and appointed open-plan interiors seem to lead lead inevitably to its large infinity pool that extends across the azure Aegean horizon. Villa Cien is the perfect Cretan villa to escape to along with your family and friends. Here you can enjoy exploring the inviting coastline and then take in the spectacular sunset over the
romantic island-studded seascape.

Villa Cien shares the vast grounds with its sister property Villa Cienta (sleeps up to 12). Both villas are situated on opposite sides of the grounds (approx. 200m), separated by the undulating hillside from which they enjoy their elevated position.
The villa is located on a hillside in order to benefit from the best possible views, therefore the road approaching the property is fairly steep. Villa Cien and its sister property Villa Cienta share the same entrance gate to the grounds but have individual car parks.
