Nestled amongst the rocks on the coast of Crete lies this sensational seaside retreat

Designed to blur the boundaries between the building and the natural surroundings, Hesper is a masterpiece of architecture. The rugged coastline creates a dramatic setting for this amazing house which sleeps eight people across four exquisite bedrooms. The owner has designed the house around an enormous rock, showcased next to the swimming pool, reminding guests of the natural wonder that surrounds them.

Glass walls mean that from almost every corner of the house, guests can embrace the stunning ocean views. Completely stripped of any superfluous decor, the minimalist approach emphasises the dreamy vista. There is a clever interior garden, partially open to the elements to encourage sunshine and growth, and to provide fruit and herbs for guests to enjoy. It is also beautiful to admire.

The master bedroom on the ground floor features a unique ensuite bathroom with a sunken Jacuzzi bath and panoramic coastal views. 

An independent guesthouse is accessed from the far end of the garden and appears to be floating across the ocean. It accommodates three guests and has the most amazing stand-alone bathtub with uninterrupted sea views and total privacy.

Outside is a paradise. The villa is cut into the cliff and there is a small waterfall linking the main infinity pool to the shallow, cooling-off pool below. Huge terraces, high-quality lounge furniture and breathtaking views make this heaven on earth.

We can arrange shopping delivery, transfers, catering, beauty treatments, boat trips and more. Just let us know how we can make your holiday extra special.

"It is hard to find fault with this one....we can't imagine anything more blissful than sitting in THAT bathtub! It feels like being on a boat in the middle of the ocean; seclusion, peace and nature create the most relaxing environment imaginable" - Ginnie, Managing Director

Things we love
"Crete's beaches are simply paradise! One gem not to be missed is the renowned Elafonissi Beach. With its powdery pink sands and shallow turquoise waters, it?s perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and simply soaking in the natural beauty of the island!"
Things to be aware of
"As you can imagine, some areas may experience overcrowding during peak tourist seasons so it?s best to book any eateries in advance and to hit the beaches early to get the best spot. Another thing to be aware of if you?re hiring a car is that there is mountainous terrain and winding roads, so be cautious when driving around the island."
