Some of our favourite views from Irinikos Villa ...

Since Irinikos Villa first came online in June 2005 we have had the pleasure of playing host to many guests from across Europe. We have designed a compilation slideshow to present some of our most recent photographs of the Villa and its gardens for you to view and some of the pictures in this presentation have been provided by our guests. As such we are proud to include them on this visual tour of the villa which we hope you will enjoy. If you have any feedback that you would like to share with us, then please send your comments in an email using the details that can be found on the 'Contact Us' link in this menu.

  • A Welcome VisitorThese beautiful birds live wild in the olive groves below us and sometimes come up to the gardens and put on a wonderful show of colour when in the mood to do so.
  • Apotheeke Patio AreaThis patio area to the side of the villa comes out of the shade in the mid afternoon and sees in the sunset at night.
  • Balcony ViewAn ideal place to cool off mid morning as it is shaded by the villa. A light warm breeze blows across this area all day and there are some fantastic panoramic views.
  • Bedroom ViewThis is the view that greets you when you open the louvre doors from either of the bedrooms at any time of the year..
  • Breakfast Patio AreaSheltered from the gentle breeze this is an ideal place to begin the day with a light breakfast.
  • Carport 1Even the car needs protection from the heat of the summer sun. It also serves as a trellis to guide a display of coloured Bougainvillea which provides the shade.
  • Carport 23 steps up from the carport and you are onto the main patio areas surrounding the villa.
  • December SunsetA beautiful time of the year in Crete with many scenic views. The weather is still warm by European standards and some guests have used the pool in November.
  • Dining AreaAnother area to relax in away from the heat of the day. Perhaps sip cold drinks and snack on some of the fresh, locally produced watermelon or fruit.
  • En SuiteAn ensuite wetroom to the master boedroom provides you with all of the personal facilities you will need throughout your stay.
  • Family BathroomA larger family bathroom with over bath shower can be used by all of the family and has also been designed as a wet room, no concerns about getting the floor wet !
  • Family BedroomThis room sleeps up to four people and is ideal for children. It's a self contained room and has its own wardrobes, drawers, bedside table and chairs.
  • Kitchen Area 1Fully equipped with all the accessories you would find in any modern home. The fridge freezer is new and more than capable of keeping all foods cool or frozen.
  • Kitchen Area 2Cutlery and crockery are kept in these units and there is also ample space for guests to use as they wish, perhaps keep a few things in there to snack on.
  • Living Room 1Completely replaced in December of 2013, this is the new sideboard area as you enter the villa. A handy unit to place or store things that you use regularly.
  • Living Room 2The view here is looking into the newly furnished living area. For your comfort we have replaced the sofa, TV / Unit and a added a new tempered glass coffee table.
  • Living Room 3The new corner unit holds a variety of CD's, DVD's and books which guests are free to use. All contributions by guests, for later guests are always a welcome addition.
  • Lower Patio 1A great place to sit in the shade at most times of the day, surrounded by the sweet scent of fresh rambling honeysuckle and Bougainvillea plants.
  • Master Bedroom 1Newly furnished in December 2013 the bedroom now has a triple wardrobe with a large matching 3 drawer unit and vanity mirror set.
  • Master Bedroom 2Part of the suite comprises of a further 2 bedside tables which can be used to store your more personal items or valuables.
  • Pool View 1We have made good use of locally crafted bamboo furniture as it is ideally suited for use around the upper level and poolside patios.
  • Pool View 2One of the stunning views that you can see when sitting at the top end of the pool.
  • Pool View 3Lights surround the pool and breakfast area. Relax with a cool drink and perhaps a dip in the pool which has been warmed by the heat of the sun all day long.
  • Pool View 4Even in mid December the pergola area outside the bedrooms can get quite warm as Crete enjoys an eastern Mediterranean climate during the day.
  • Poolside BBQThe top end of the pool towards the back of the patio area is an ideal place for a BBQ and you can purchase everything you would need for it in the local supermarket.
  • Poolside Patio Area 1Another area alongside the pool where you can slip into the water and cool off. Also another great place to catch the rays all day long.
  • Poolside Patio AreasViewed from the villa boundary this is a view of the poolside and rear of the Irinikos Villa.
  • Poolside SunriseIf you're an early riser then this is the view you will be greeted with as the sun climbs over the mountains. It rises inline with the centre of the swimming pool.
  • Roumeli At DuskAs the day begins to fade you can see a dusky view of Roumeli Village.
  • Roumeli SunsetAt sunset you can see the sun disappear from view as it sinks behind the village of Roumeli.
  • Side Patio AreaThe side patio area comes out of the shade towards mid afternoon and stays in the sun until sunset. It's quite useful if you want to soak up the rays all day long.
  • Spring Garden ViewIn the springtime of March and April, just after the winter rains, the garden springs to life as plants rush to grow and bloom before the heat of the summer sun arrives.
  • Summer Garden ViewMay to October is the dry season and the sun gradually gets hotter, peaking in June to September and many plants slow down growth to conserve water until November.
  • Villa EntranceAs you park the car under the carport this is the view you will see. 3 more steps and you are on the main villa level with the pool and patios around the whole perimeter.
