Villas Within Walking Distance of Beaches

The ultimate luxury villa is one that is next to a beach, a villa where you can see the sea rolling in from your window, an outdoor dining space where you can eat to the sound of waves. In this blog, we spotlight our most beloved villas near the sea.


The island of Crete is a beautiful place to enjoy a fantastic holiday between the sun and sand, but which of our villas should you prioritise booking if you’re looking for the best beach holiday this summer? We have compiled a short list of some of our closest beach villas so that you can spend less time getting to the beach, and more time paddling in gorgeous Greek waters.

Villa Argiro, Plaka

From our beautiful villa Argiro, the beach is less than a fifteen-minute walk, and it is also quite close to amenities with tavernas and mini markets on your doorstep. As well as its proximity to the sea, this villa has plenty of other benefits which will make your holiday stand out against all your other experiences in Crete.

You will want to make the most of Crete’s exotic weather, we know, so there is an outdoor dining terrace complete with a traditional stone barbecue and wood oven, all overlooking your own private pool with towels provided.

The interior design is clean, rural and homely with a flash of style and everything that you might desire during your time on holiday; even a Nespresso Machine!

Villa Ermis, Kefalonia

For other beachside holiday villas in Crete, we recommend that you check Villa Nynemia, also in Plaka, located around thirty-minutes of walking from the water’s edge, or Villa Clio in Stalos which is a five-minute drive from the nearest beach.


Kefalonia is an island rich with history, sights, and beautiful beaches. If you’re most interested in the beaches, then you’ll be thrilled with the holiday villas in Kefalonia that we have chosen to spotlight in this section:

Villa Sakos, Skala

A villa that sleeps six and is less than a five-minute walk from the beach, this villa is spacious with cosy furnishings. The nearest mini market is a bit further to walk than the beach, but the taverna isn’t far so service is never too far away.

Villa Sakos is most loved for its views over the sea where you can watch ferries, boats and yachts making their way from one port to another. The colour scheme in this villa is bright and warm for the perfect holiday feeling.

We have plenty of beachside villas in Kefalonia, so don’t forget to check on Villa Korfos before you make your booking. Other beautifully refined villas with private pools located within ten-minute walks to the beach are Villa Poseidonia and Villa Atlantis in Katelios.


The Balearic Islands are pro’s at handling tourism so you’re sure to feel quite safe and catered for during your stay in Mallorca. Even better, we have plenty of stunning beach-side villas here for you to make your holiday memories in:

Casa Nuredduna, Puerto Pollenca

The beach is no more than twenty metres away from this delightful villa making it perfect for families with young children who they want to introduce to the sea. The local minimarket and restaurants are also less than five minutes away from Casa Nuredduna so you won’t have to waste a single moment travelling when you could be enjoying the sun and sea.

The interior is decorated in a traditional style with all the expected amenities plus a flat-screen TV and portable barbecue. The minimum required stay for this property is five nights, but we’re sure that you’ll want to stay for at least two weeks once you’ve experienced Puerto Pollenca’s charm.

Villa Ermis, Kefalonia

If Casa Nuredduna didn’t take your fancy or if you’re travelling as a couple, you may prefer Es Pica Petita, which is also in Puerto Pollenca but fifteen-minutes’ walk from the beach.

We love the beach and we know you do too, so don’t hesitate to book your holiday with us. For more information about which beaches to visit during your stay, or for activities to enjoy while you’re down there, check back on our blog for all the latest hints, tips and ideas.
