Greece has a strategic geopolitical position in the south-eastern Mediterranean Sea connecting three continents and many different cultures. Greece is a country of beautiful contradictions, a constant journey in time, from the present to the past and back again. You feel the strength of history and the warmth of the south of Europe and discover the evolutionary course of thought, influence and experience.
The project is situated on the island of Crete near the island’s capital of Heraklion. The landscape complete with sudden mountains, olive trees famous for its healthy olive oil, wine yards with indigenous varieties and crystal clear turquoise sea fading into the depths of an indigo blue, where the waters meet the sky.
Crete is steeped in mythology, including the myth of Theseus and the Minotaur- hence the name Theseus Beach Village.
The climate in Crete is primarily Mediterranean and enjoys 340 sunny days a year. The average temperature in the summer is 25°C-30°C, while winters are mild between 12°C-17°C. The ideal micro climate in the area where the project is located has the benefit of low humidity as a result of the pleasant breeze.
A secure environment linked to low crime rate.
Theseus Beach Village is located 20km from Heraklion in the middle of Crete that gives easy access to many surrounding places in the area.
