When you fancy feeling warm sand between your toes, just walk five metres from this beachfront villa to beautiful Spilies Beach. Have a dip in the crystal-clear sea or relax with a book. If you want to explore further afield, it’s a short drive to Rethymno with its Venetian Harbour lined with tavernas. Back at this home, lounge by the sparkling pool or unwind on the terrace with its glorious sea views, while the kids enjoy the private playground area. Grill some fresh, local produce on the barbecue in the outdoor kitchen and serve with some dakos (paximadi rusks soaked in olive oil, topped with grated fresh tomato and myzithra, a creamy goat’s milk cheese). Inside, whitewashed walls and natural materials like rattan and driftwood create a calming vibe. We love the sea vistas from the dining table. This place is perfect for a family or group of friends – there’s plenty of space to entertain here.

About Rethymno

A labyrinthine Old Town, a bustling promenade and an enchanting Venetian port – Rethymno really does have it all. The latter is where you’ll find most of the crowds, but a quick stroll up Paleokastro Hill and you’ll be away from the masses, gazing out at the Cretan Sea from the star-shaped citadel of the Fortezza.
