Get away from the everyday with a stay at this stunning villa, based in Rethymno on the Greek island of Crete. This home is truly striking – the host has mastered the art of blending contemporary decor with classical design features. Scandi-style furniture sits beautifully against the rustic exposed brickwork and stone archways, creating a home that is dripping with style. The outdoor areas are also expertly designed, with a stunning wraparound pool that looks so inviting, complete with in-pool sunbeds that make it easy to top up your tan. Start each morning with a soak in your freestanding bath – each bedroom has one. Then, sip on a cup of coffee in your swinging egg chair, located on your private balcony, and take in the surrounding views of the rolling hills and lush greenery. Go downstairs into your fully equipped kitchen and cook up some Greek scrambled eggs and tuck in around your stylish dining set. Head outside and rest in the sun on a poolside lounger, or enjoy a lush swim in your private pool. As the evenings roll in, relax in the hot tub while waiting for the stars to join you. There's plenty to do in the local area when you're ready to venture out. You're just 1km from the nearest beach, where you'll find plenty of vibrant beach bars and restaurants to visit. Or, enjoy a peaceful stroll through the many olive groves in the area, the ideal way to spend a serene afternoon in the sunshine.

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.
