This villa is truly magical. It is exactly as listed, and even more majestic then we thought. The pool is amazing - big enough for 2 adults and 3 grown up children to swim in and have fun. Sun all day around the pool and plenty of places to find shade and space away from the sun if needed. The...

This house is like stepping into a gentleman's residence of 30 years ago, its beautifully furnished spacious accommodation is first class. The brochure photos give the impression of a large building with shared accommodation but this is not the case, you've got the whole place to yourselves, the owners, Yiannis and his mum Maria live miles away.

About the neighbourhood
Rethymno is the nearest city to Villa Elena. It is located in the northern part of Crete, approximately in the middle of the island between Chania and Heraklion, making it an ideal base of explorations. Rethymno combines the conveniences of a large modern city with the beauty of a well preserved charming old town including the castle Fortezza and Venetian port built during the Venetian occupation of the island. Throughout the summer there is a wide variety of interesting cultural activities and happenings, some of them even taking place inside the premises of our castle. The prefecture of Rethymno features some of the most beautiful beaches on the island, spanning across both its northern and southern coastline. Much of the rural inland still follows the same way of life for decades, provi... more
