Olives & Thyme Retreat Chania

Greece, Crete, Chania

Pr. Pool

Welcome to Olives and Thyme Retreat, a unique totally private space being accessed only from the one road, with no one overlooking it. Perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking Souda Bay and across to the majestic White Mountains and above the Souda to Akrotiri road gives Olives and Thyme its unique location. Its mix of stone, wood, glass and metal creates a New York-Swedish style while sitting in a Cretan olive grove. The complex consists of the main tower-like building ''The Keep'', with a separate stone cottage on the left.

The Keep:
Four double ensuite bedrooms take up the ground and first floor. A metal and wood staircase gives access to each floor. A glass atrium extends upwards to the top floor housing a large Ficus Alii, or Amstel King, tree growing inside, bringing nature into the home. The top floor is where you will find the living area and fully equipped kitchen, with a large covered and hanging balcony with spectacular views of the whole of the Bay. A metal and wood staircase connects the floors internally with ramps and platforms externally giving access to each floor and to the leisure and outside dining areas.

The four large bedrooms in the Keep have comfortable king-size beds, two of which can be separated to make single beds. Walk-in showers and double sinks give personal space to each guest. Open wardrobes provide plenty of hanging and shelf spaces, with a few drawers providing plenty of room for all your clothes and personal items. Large wood shelves can be used as writing space or simply a space to put your books on. All the windows, internal and external, have blinds for privacy and to shut out light. The two ground floor bedrooms have walk out access the lap pool and the two first floor bedrooms have a walk-way access to the endless pool and leisure area.

Ground floor bedrooms:
These two bedrooms are accessed by a ramp leading from the parking area. There is a metal staircase leading to the outdoor living space and an endless pool.

First-floor bedrooms:
These two bedrooms are accessed from inside up the metal and wood staircase or from the car parking up via ramps. A platform leads directly to the outside living area and endless pool.

The Cottage
An escape within an escape. Set slightly apart from the main villa, this cosy apartment has a good sized bedroom, a full bathroom with walk in shower, a kitchenette and a sitting come office area on a mezzanine floor. Steppingstones lead one to the lap pool in one direction and the main villa in the other.

This cosy space, accessed by a concrete step path, is ideal for a couple wanting to be with, yet separate, from the main group. The ground floor has a large double bed with views across the natural flora to the Bay. Between the bedroom and bathroom is a kitchenette, to make yourselves drinks. The bathroom has a walk-in shower. Up a spiral staircase is a mezzanine with a sofa and desk space.
