Just 4 kilometres from the vibrant heart of Rethymno and 2 kilometres from Koumbes Beach lies this family-friendly villa. The pristine pool (which can be heated upon request), sun-soaked terrace and knockout Aegean views are just some of the highlights here. Inside, the place is modern and minimal, though keep in mind there are three storeys of living space, so you’ll need to climb some stairs. Greek feasts alfresco are just the ticket after a day exploring the Venetian Harbour, and why not level up the experience with a chef-prepared dinner at sunset?
