The Design

The new villa’s state-of-the-art design takes inspiration from the spectacular setting of Daios Cove. Located on the tranquil turquoise shores of Crete in its own private cove, The Mansion’s design and layout make the most of the setting’s abundant natural light – huge floor to ceiling windows line the airy building, meaning guests can enjoy the incredible views from almost any point in the room.

The interiors are fresh and modern – light, natural woods line the floors, white marble creates an incredible sense of space, while glass also dominates.

Designer furniture has been meticulously chosen and includes unique pieces from world-famous contemporary brands B&B Italia and Maxalto. Natural light floods the property, while designer lighting from Catellani & Smith and Occhio provides warm and intimate lighting for cocktails and private evening meals.

Bang & Olufsen speakers are discreetly placed through the property to provide a soundtrack to cooking, sunbathing or working out.

The Mansion comes compete with staff quarters, should guests wish to make the most of Crete’s glorious natural produce and cuisine by leaving a chef to combine delicious fresh ingredients in the fully equipped kitchen. If holiday makers prefer to cook themselves, the modern, clean-cut kitchen boasts a clutter-free design.


The Master Bedroom

While the property boasts three beautiful bedrooms, two with walk-in wardrobes, the master bedroom is particularly impressive thanks to its ceiling-high windows with some of the best views on the island, looking out over the azure water of the Aegean sea and sun-drenched cliffs surrounding the property.

Fresh white furniture and cotton linen create an immediate sense of calm, while the bathroom is a sanctuary, with twin sinks, a deep bathtub perfect for a relaxing bubble bath and huge shower cabin – all of which come with the mesmerising views the Mansion is sure to become famous for.


The Spa

For those looking to work out, the villa has its own gym packed with the latest equipment from world-famous fitness brand Technogym and guests can book personal training sessions as well as yoga and Pilates.


The Pool
