As our identity expresses, the Minoan Octopus, we wish to symbolize the timelessness of the sea & its healing powers. This symbol was initially found on the Minoan ceramics establishing the power & knowledge of the ancient Cretans in the Mediterranean sea. Today we use it as a metaphor to reconnect with the sea, the traditional way of life & our spiritual side. In Greek OCTO is also the number 8 that is linked to spiritual perceptions. The 5 senses, the power of thought, the power of self-awareness & the subconscious. A symbolism that carries the serenity of the location and the balanced setting of the villa. Villa Octo thus aims to provide a carefree, luxurious environment for relaxation & recreation that is the definition of paradise.
