Greek Island Villa on Crete in an Ancient Village - Villa Theseus
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 tasteful furnishings. Outdoor amenities include a 600 m2 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.
