We don’t know about you but we’re on top of the world just looking at this sprawling home on the outskirts of Rethymno, one of the most picturesque cities on the island of Crete. Boasting a dreamy outdoor pool and stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea, this is the perfect place to unwind with friends or family, situated in a gorgeous two-acre plot with plenty of space for eating, drinking, and being merry with your fellow guests. Spend all day exploring the grounds, unleash your competitive side with a game of oversized garden chess, or beat the heat with a dip in the pool and a traditional Greek dinner at the regal dining table. Whatever your mood, this place has got you covered. If you fancy getting out and about, you’re just 5 kilometres from the nearest beach, so why not make the most of it? Set off for an afternoon of sunbathing by the glistening sea or head into the centre of Rethymno where you’ll find a whole host of bars and restaurants to keep you busy until sundown. Glass of red, anyone?
