Prinolithos Villas

Prinolithos Villas

Prinolithos Villas is a privately owned estate measuring 5000sqm and is comprised of two independent villas, each with its own private infinity swimming pool; Prinolithos (meaning 'kermes oak forest, rocky mountain, stone') and Armonia (meaning 'harmony').

Villa Prinolithos combines traditional architecture walls made by stone and wooden ceiling with modern and simple furnishing. Additional beauty, the small private forest of Prinos trees right next to the villa.
Villa Armonia enjoys a fresh and modern approach with clean cut lines, cool colors, contemporary furnishings and chic design.

Located between Gavalohori & Vamos village in the region of Apokoronas, about 25km east of Chania in NW Crete, these large villas are perched high on a hilltop overlooking the village of Gavalohori, the sea and the coast of Almyrida, while just a short drive from nearby beaches.

The tranquility of the mountainous landscape, sounds of birds and the magnificent sea view, all compliment the style and comfort offered by both villas. Prinolithos Villas are an ideal base from which to explore Crete from.
