Esperides Villas and Spa

The Esperides Villas and Spa effortlessly blends modern and traditional. Bare stone walls lend a rustic feel and the rooms showcase simple wood furnishings and nautical touches.

The hillside setting of the hotel means the views are a big part of its lure. There are three outdoor pools where you can make the most of the panoramas, and one even has a hot tub in the centre.

Drinks and snacks are served at a shady, stool lined-bar by the main pool. The restaurant mirrors the hotel’s traditional vibe and it serves a menu of Cretan and Mediterranean dishes.
