The Villa Maroulas :

The privately owned villa, which is a listed building, has a magnificent sea-view, and is situated on a hillside just 6 km from Rethymnon, in the historic village of Maroulas. It is just 3km from some of the best beaches on the North Coast of the island. The village has been classified as a ‘heritage’ site.

Most of the buildings date back to at least the Venetian era and no new construction work can be carried out without the cooperation of the archaeological department. It is, however, a living, breathing community, too! The village has two tavernas and two kafeneions. There is a bus connection to Rethymnon, twice a day. For visitors arriving by plane, the village is conveniently situated : Heraklion airport is just 80 km away, and Hania airport is even closer – just 60km.

Our sympathetically restored 540 m2 villa in the village of Maroulas can accommodate up to eleven people. Historically, the building has had various functions : At one point, part of the building used to be a Venetian farm house. During the Turkish occupation an olive press was added. It has now been completely renovated to create a holiday villa with a difference...!

The villa can be rented all year round. The villa has a private swimming pool, and welcomes domestic pets. You can park your car in the village square.

The villa has two wings.

The first wing of the villa is a two-storeyed building which was once part of a larger farmhouse. It has all the architectural characteristics of the Venetian era.

The second wing of the villa is a one-storeyed building that used to be an olive press, originally constructed during the period of Turkish rule. The recent renovation of the building has shown great respect for the original character of the building, but has also incorporated all the modern facilities one would expect to find in an exclusive ‘home away from home’.

The Entrance :

The front door opens onto an inner courtyard (400 m2.) High walls offer peace and privacy, yet you are still in the heart of the village.You find a swimming pool, surrounded by potted plants, flowers and elegant garden furniture. This is the place to sunbathe, unwind and relax, or bask in the shade of a lemon tree...

Living area :

A conservatory style entrance leads you into the main living area. The design is open-plan : You will find a huge lounge with a stunning white marble floor, a kitchen and dining area, a vaulted television room, and hi-tech office space. The kitchen is fully equipped - dishwasher, microwave, oven etc. Techno facilities here include : PC, WIFI, giant screen (3.5m x 3.5m), overhead projector managed by computer, a telephone, fax, television, video tape recorder, hi-fi, CD-DVD...

The dining area is spacious and there is also a children’s play space.

The living area leads out to a small inner courtyard which houses a Jacuzzi which is big enough for at least seven people. Your additional fifth bedroom is also located in this part of the building.

Crete, cradle of the Minoan civilisation, is the sunniest island of the Mediterranean (more than 300 days of sun per annum), and has a mild climate throughout the whole year. Of all the islands of the Mediterranean, Crete stands out: not just because of its geographical location, but also because of its unique historical, cultural and social identity.

Crete is a veritable crossroads between Europe, Africa and Asia. The island offers you dazzling turquoise seas, superb beaches and stunning mountain ranges.
