Luxury Outlook 2022
An ambitious exploration into high-end residential markets across the globe.
We invite you to explore L' île. A welcome splash of style coupled with the authenticity of southern Crete. L' île is a brand new luxurious property located on a small sheltered peninsula not far from the charming coastal town of Agios Nikolaos and only 45 minutes from Heraklion airport.
The design concept was to give the sense of being on a private island in a sunny summer paradise.
Here you are invited to explore majestic scenery and the tranquility of the area, whilst experiencing an unforgettable stay. The property has its own pristine sandy beach and restaurant operating exclusively for you. Fully serviced with important added values that will totally enhance your stay such as the pool bar, spa, gym, alternative breakfast options, concierge service, room service, reception and security service as well as transfer to and from the airport.
The whitewashed waterfront resort boasts a minimalistic design respecting modern Greek island architecture and offers an authentic, yet contemporary experience, combining luxurious accommodation with iconic Cretan hospitality. All areas feel spacious and airy filled with plenty of natural light. Large frames open up to breezy balconies and verandas, daybeds and sun loungers or larger patios all offering breathtaking views of the Cretan Sea.
The villa is ideal for larger families and groups as it may accommodate up to 30 people in its 15 rooms and suites which vary in size. All accommodations faithfully serve the minimalistic aesthetics of Greek simplicity. Simple lines, bright white, cerulean blue, earth tones, and natural materials, along with stunning views of the Minoan Sea, paint a calming picture that accords to your comfort and total relaxation.
Let yourself indulge in a world of unlimited summer moments and authentic experiences.
“There is a kind of flame in Crete...something more powerful than either life or death. There is pride, obstinacy, valour, and together with these something else inexpressible and imponderable, something which makes you rejoice that you are human being, and at the same time tremble” - Nikos KazantzakisLose yourself on Crete, Europe’s southernmost frontier and an island of stark contrasts. From the snow-capped mountains of the interior, looming imposingly over tiny, crumbling villages, to the elegant seafront resorts that fringe the changeable waters of the Mediterranean Sea, Crete is sure to enrapture your soul. The island’s rugged landscape hosts a particularly bountiful crop of herbs, and the heady scents of rosemary, thyme, oregano, chamomile and fennel perfume the air throughout the year. Cretan diet is renown to the world for its longevity effect: It is made of earth’s simplest ingredients such as olive oil, fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and light fish as well as red wine and poultry yet rich for their healthy benefits and quality of living.The largest of the Greek islands, measuring 160 miles in length, Crete is a kaleidoscope of towns and villages all with their own unique aura. From Heraklion, the capital and fourth largest city in Greece, to tiny Loutro and its quiet pebble beach, there’s something for everyone on this eclectic island. Every summer, the international jet-set descend on the chic village of Elounda, overlooking the sparkling waters of the Mirabello Bay and a favourite of international personalities. Dinner at the Calypso Elounda Peninsula is a unique experience and particular favourite with yacht-owners moored nearby, whilst the more laid-back Lotus Eaters serves fresh, local fare in a luxuriously peaceful location.The island’s long coastline also offers a range of conditions suited to different water sports, from jet skiing and parasailing to kitesurfing and sailing. iKiTe provides premium, professional kiteboarding in Heraklion, whilst the best surfing is found during the winter at Phalasarna Beach in the Chania region.
