Description from the manager
This elegantly restored Greek island villa for rent offers the appeal of a classic island abode combined with great location in a small village. Wander the small streets by day; float in the pool at your own Greek holiday villa; or drive in to Rethymnon to enjoy some of the island's urban delights. You're sure to spend lots of time relaxing on the patio or in the living room of this Greece rental villa, just to soak up the charm of this wonderfully authentic abode.
This 18th century house, lovingly restored in 1990, is comprised of two historic structures, one Venetian and the other Turkish. It features high ceilings, white walls, and t...asteful furnishings. Outdoor amenities include a 600m2 patio [partly covered] with high walls which affords the utmost privacy; the entrance gate leads directly into this courtyard from the street. In one corner of the courtyard there is a large swimming pool [32 m2] and elegant garden furniture. There is also a Jacuzzi and a spacious, tri-level upper sun terrace with sea views equipped with umbrellas and lounge chairs. Parking is available outside the villa. The local property representative will meet you at a prearranged place and guide you to the villa. At that point [or, if your arrival time is late, the following day], the representative will answer any questions and introduce you to the spectacular island of Crete. A representative will also remain available on a 24-hour help line for any further assistance you might need.
Ground floor: Off of the courtyard, the entrance leads into a large living room with white marble floors, original stone archways, a fireplace, and several seating areas. To the right of the entrance there is an open plan, fully equipped marble kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, and dining area. Also in this wing of the house there is a play corner for children and a utility room with a washing machine and dryer. A guest bathroom includes a sink, toilet, and shower. On the ground floor there are two bedrooms. The first has a 145 cm standard double bed and a small private patio/terrace. A glass-roofed hallway leads to the second bedroom, which has a 155 cm small queen-size bed and an en suite bathroom [tub with handheld shower head].
First floor: Upstairs you will find three bedrooms. The first is a spacious master bedroom with a 170 cm large queen-size bed, elegant French windows with sea views, teak flooring, and an en suite bathroom including a sink, toilet, and tub with handheld showerhead. The second bedroom contains one 90 cm single bed. The third bedroom contains a 90 cm bunk bed suitable for children. A bathroom has a sink, toilet, and tub with handheld showerhead.
This villa is situated in the center of the Venetian-influenced village of Maroulas and overlooks the village church. An ancient town, Maroulas is very quaint and quiet. There are few other residents and only two tavernas and one cafe. The nearest beach is a ten-minute drive from the villa. The nearest supermarkets are about 4 km away, in an area called Platanias. A full selection of shops and services can be found in nearby Rethymnon, the capital of the province. Here you can find ferry connections to mainland Greece, as well as a unique and picturesque Old Town featuring narrow streets, Venetian palaces, and Turkish minarets. There are countless other sights to see in town, including a Venetian Fortezza [where an annual renaissance festival is held], the harbour, and a fine sandy beach-- the longest in Crete, stretching for several kilometers! You'll also enjoy the local tavernas, cafes, and restaurants. If you’re interested in the history of the island you can step into the Historical and Folk Art Museum for a taste of traditional Cretan ceramics, textiles, artifacts, jewelry, and clothing from across the centuries.
