Upon entering the villa’s gate you will surprisingly find yourselves into an amazing 2.500 sqm exterior space with palm trees, pines, fruit trees, lawn and all kind of ornamental and aromatic plants. This beautiful ambience is completed by a stunning private swimming pool (9m long & 1.40m deep) which offers magnificent views to the clear blue sea and the Cretan countryside. By the pool, there is a lovely gazebo and a lawn area where you can lounge and sunbathe while enjoying a cold, refreshing beverage. The veranda of the house with its dining table for 6 is the perfect spot for having plentiful meals with family and friends or feeling the rejuvenating night dew whilst enjoying a summer cocktail. The villa also features another outdoor sitting area with BBQ facilities and a big table for 6. Depending on the season, our guests may have the change to taste fresh fruits from our trees (apricots, pears, oranges, loquats, mandarins, lemons, etc).

Indoor

The main house of Villa Metochi covers a ground floor space with an open-plan living room, a fully equipped kitchen, two spacious bedrooms (1 double & 1 twin) and a bathroom with shower cabin. This layout is perfect for two couples or families of four. The comfy living room with its discreet decoration and the wooden ceiling boasts 2 triple sofas and a monastery-style dining table for 8, is air-conditioned and opens up to a large veranda with amazing views of the pool and the well-kept gardens.

The studio can be additionally booked in case the total number of guests is higher than 4 and a supplementary charge will be required. Otherwise, it will remain closed.

In addition, within the premises of the property there is an adorable and very friendly small dog called Ermis. Our dog disposes of his own place with fresh water and food. He is usually roaming freely around the villa, but if you are not familiar with dogs, there is no reason to worry about it! He can perfectly remain at his spacious place which is far enough from the villa.

- Housekeeping every 3- 4 days. Pool and garden attendance twice a week.

- Baby travel cot & high chair provided upon request.

Givera Villas (Villa Givera and Villa Metochi) is a family business launched by Mr. George Kazilas who wanted to put his own spin on the promotion of Cretan hospitality and top-notch accommodation and service. In 2006 he raised two lovely, private villas with personal commitment and care in order to preserve the Cretan heritage and offer visitors the opportunity to explore the beauties of this land, enjoy the landscape and experience the Cretan way of life. The longtime know-how of Kazilas Family is a guarantee of high quality vacations and a travelling experience you rarely get as a mass tourist. Villa Givera and Villa Metochi stand in two different locations, but they are both just a few-minute drive from the town of Rethymnon.

Location description from owner

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

A walk in the island of Crete is a scent of spring flowers growing in the yards of the houses. Generations of Minoan, Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian, Turkish, Jewish and Egyptian people lived here. istory is alive in Crete, breathing through the bow strokes of the lyra and the violin, the sound of the lute and the bagpipe. Finally, it is the tastes of a history of eastern spices, unique greens and herbs, blessed oil and wine. Here, in these cultural crossroads, a lot of memories are alive and a large number of elements of other cultures still form a part of the everydayness of the Cretan people. The total area of Crete is 8.336 sq.Km. It is located at the southern edge of the Aegean Sea and it has a remarkable coastline of more than 1000 Km. It is bordered by the Cretan Sea to the north and the Lybian Sea to the South. It is surrounded by a number of small islands (Gavdow, Gavdopoula, Chrysi, Koufonisi, Dia, Dyonisades etc.). The length of the island from one edge (west) to the other (east) is 256 Km. The percentage of mountainous area is 49%. The predominant mountain ranges are the Lefka Ori (2.452m), Philoritis (2.456m) and Dikti (2148m). Crete is the largest island in Greece - the fifth largest in the Mediterranean - and there are many jewels just waiting to be discovered by the more adventurous explorers of holiday treasures. Its exquisite coastline is dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas, which afford a multitude of soft, sandy beaches along the beautifully blue Mediterranean Sea. Crete with its nearby islands form the Crete Region which is based at Heraklion and is divided into four regional units. From west to east these are: Chania, Rethymno, Heraklion and Lasithi.

Rethymnon

Welcome to the city of Rethymnon, a place blessed with beauty, embraced by breathtaking mountains and the deep blue of the Mediterranean, decorated with renaissance colors and inhabited by people known for their hospitality, honoring their ancestors and traditions. It is a place one falls in love at first sight and visitors are able to feel the positive vibes of the city from the very first moment, making them feel at home. The city of Rethymno is an ideal tourist destination for visitors who wish to explore the rich cultural heritage and the natural beauties of Crete. This well-organized city offers to visitors a variety of picturesque routes to follow and numerous historical monuments to visit. The old city of Rethymno still preserves its old urban structure to a great extend, formed during the Venetian period and later reformed during the Turkish occupation. The beautiful city of Rethymno is standing on the site where ancient Rithymna used to be, as archaeological excavations of the late Neolithic period (3500- 2800 BC) proved. It is the gate way between Chania and Heraklion. Full of rich history, ancient sites, magnificent sandy beaches, Byzantine churches, lovely villages, lively resorts, Rethymno combines an old- time aristocratic appearance with a modern aspect, a blend which is creating a unique atmosphere. In Rethymno you can enjoy the breathtaking sight of an endless sandy beach that meets on one side the blue sea and on the other the enchanting view of the city. For all the time Winter and summer! The beach of Rethymno is 12 km long, it starts from the historical city center and extends to the Eastern part of the isle reaching Scaleta. Rethymno's beach has fine-grained brilliant light brown sand where you can walk barefoot and feel how soft and beautiful it is. There is nothing more rejuvenating than kicking off your shoes to sink your toes into powdery-golden, squeaky-clean beach sand. There are many great attractions nearby, including Rethimno's old town, the Venetian Fortezza, the Venetian harbour, the Loggia, the Rimondi Fountain, Saint Franciscus Church, the Neratzies mosque, the famous Sacred Monastery of Arcadi, the Village of Margarites and the Village of Eleftherna. The beaches of Preveli, Triopetra, Ligres, Agios Pavlos, Damnoni, Ammoudi and Rodakino are of exceptional beauty (southern part of the prefecture of Rethimno). In addition, the small towns of Plakias and Agia Galini are worth visiting and there are many beautiful beaches around.

“Perfect place!”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2013

This house was perfect! Close to the city, beautiful location. Well kept. Great owners, who knows what service means. Clean, and comfortable. Also: Good beds, so you can sleep. The on property supersweet dog is also a great bonus. Thanks ! Will recommend!

“Small paradise in Rethimno”

Reviewed 24 May 2013

This was the second time we visit Crete and our vacations were absolutely fabulous. I think that we made a perfect choice for our accommodation. The location of Villa Metochi is excellent as you are far from the noise and close to everything. The house was very clean and cozy. We were 7 so we also used the studio which was really nice two! The owner told us that the villa had been recently renovated (kitchen, bathroom, perfect beds for sleeping!) The exterior and gardens were like heaven (big trees with shadow, grass, beautiful flowers). We also had bbq twice. One of the most relaxing and joyful times was playing with Ermis. He was so cute and our kids loved him. Finally, we recommend you to visit the Monastery of Arcadi and the beaches at the southern part of Rethymno

“A beautiful place to stay”

Reviewed 4 May 2013

Nice place to stay. Beautiful big garden with a lot of shadow. Pool cleaned every day. House very comfortable and clean. Ideal position, close to everything. I would definitely return.

“Excellent stay at an excellent location”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2012

This is an amazing villa! I stayed there for 10 days with my family. The house is located in a lovely and peaceful area, but close to shops, tavernas and beach. The villa was even nicer than the photos and this was a great surprice for us. We received a fantastic hospitality as the owner (Marina) was very helpful and around at any time we needed anything. Our kids enjoyed playing in the swimming pool and around the gardens, but what I loved most with my husband is sitting in the veranda and hearing the sounds of the Cretan nature. It was just what we were looking for! I am and will recommend this place to everybody!! I only wish one day I can return.
