The Villa Svega has been part of our family's property for the past 100 years. It is believed that it belongs to the second half of the Venetian era.

Additional Location Information

The Villa Svega, in the small hillside hamlet of Gallou, is an old, stone-built house, both handsome and gracefully proportioned, which has been sensitively restored. It once formed part of a magnificent Venetian estate among the hills, 5 Km west of Rethymno. The surrounding hill slopes are richly verdant with diverse flora and, in parts, still thickly wooded with oak trees, while the nearest sandy beach is only 2 Km away.
A local bus runs from the centre of Rethymno to the villa, via the beach. The main road to the village is connected with the highway (National Road) going from Heraklion to Chania.
