The Crete region

Holidaying in Crete and renting a Crete villa or apartment are a great and unique way to see the largest and most southern of the Greek islands. The island has an enormous wealth of myths, legends and historical sites. There is also incredibly natural beauty on the island, with the stunning mountain ranges running from one end all the way to the other, breaking only for the fertile plateaus of Lasithi, Omalos and Nidha. The landscape is also dotted with caves and gorges, like the famous Gorge of Samaria, the home of the kri-kri, which can now only be found on Crete.


Our highly aesthetic luxurious villa, which is built on a round structure over the green hill of St. Mark in a 5,400 m² range, is located in the east part of Rethymno city, only 1km away from its marvellous beach and 3 km away from the centre of the old town of Rethymno. It is built on a three level footprint of 500m², which makes it a peaceful oasis, offering a high standard accommodation.

The great view over the Cretan Sea combined with the fascinating view of the Psiloritis and Lefka Ori mountains, which you can enjoy from all the villa's parts, is a very unique and tempting suggestion for family or large group vacations, offering not only an outstanding accommodation experience full of calmness and relaxation, but also protection for your private moments.

"A great place to stay"

The villa is fantastic. It is set up on the hill with beautiful views down to the coast. The villa was kept very clean and tidy and there was lots of space for us. It caters well for all ages, the pool is gated and there are toys indoors and in the garden for the children. The pool table, table tennis table and gym provide entertainment for the adults.

The property owner was very welcoming and was attentive to any needs.

Overall a great place to stay and one we would recommend.
