About Villa Cienta

Villa Cienta is a luxury villa in Crete that can accommodate large groups with consummate ease. As many as 12 guests can comfortably occupy its six bedrooms. And, with its nearby sister property, Villa Cien, sleeping 16 groups as large as 28 can escape to the Cretan coast in style here. But, as they say, size is not everything. And Villa Cienta is far from being short on those details that add up to create the perfect Cretan villa.

It commands stunning views from its hillside location. Here you’ll be far from the madding crowd but just a short walk from the popular town of Elounda. The open plan interiors are perfect for communal holidays. In the enclosed grounds of the villa a serene infinity pool blends seamlessly into the Aegean's azure waters .

Villa Cienta's contemporary natural stone design is the work of its architect-owner. The airy interiors are modern without ever compromising on comfort, and warm earthy colours complement the languorous hill and sea vistas.The spacious interior is the prelude to the expansive estate that the villa’s grounds are enclosed by. The estate’s 1.4 hectares of landscaped gardens and terraces are filled with olive trees, lavender and aromatic herbs. With the charming fishing village of Elounda at its doorstep, various beaches a short drive away and famous archaeological sites nearby, Villa Cienta delivers the very best Crete has to offer.
