Carmine is an elegant five-bedroom retreat in the serene surroundings of Akrotiri. Tucked away from the typical crowds and tourist hotspots, this sleepy village on the south of the island is the ideal destination for those who enjoy a quieter pace of life while away on holiday. Of course, if you wish to explore the rest of the island, all the very best towns and attractions are just a stone’s throw away by car. The area here is rich in history and beauty; Carmine is set next to a Minoan Bronze Age settlement which is linked to the mythical island of Atlantis. For those who love uncovering the stories, myths, and legends of their holiday destinations, you’ll find plenty to discover here. Inside the home, a soft white colour palette exudes elegance. Adding to this atmosphere are the dainty chandeliers that hang from the ceiling and flowing chiffon curtains that envelop the plush king bed in the master room. From the ship ropes to the flying swallows and shells that adorn the walls, there are hints of nautical influences waiting to be discovered in each room. Within, you will also find a soothing indoor spa room complete with a heated jacuzzi. From here, you can access the spacious pool area. Set around the private swimming pool is a cosy shaded lounge area where you can sit and soak up the magnificent sea views. Nearby, a barbecue area with a wooden oven and al fresco dining table provide the perfect spot for sunset dinners together.
