Open All Year... A luxurious privately owned villa in the beautiful Venetian village of Maroulas, an outstanding location, providing peace and tranquillity for all, yet only minutes away from Rethymnon, the cultural and artistic heartbeat of Crete.


General Information

A luxurious privately owned villa in the beautiful Venetian village of Maroulas, an outstanding location, providing peace and tranquillity for all, yet only minutes away from Rethymnon, the cultural and artistic heartbeat of Crete.



History

The villa has two wings. The first wing of the villa is a two-storeyed building which was once part of a larger farmhouse. It has all the architectural characteristics of the Venetian era. The second wing of the villa is a one-storeyed building that used to be an olive press, originally constructed during the period of Turkish rule. The recent renovation of the building has shown great respect for the original character of the building, but has also incorporated all the modern facilities one would expect to find in an exclusive "home away from home". The two wings of the villa connect via a modern covered walkway designed by the internationally renowned architect Yiannis Kalitsounas – who has created a fusion of light, glass and space, bringing different times and cultures together.

Location

The privately owned villa, which is a listed building, has a magnificent sea-view, and is situated on a hillside just 6 km from Rethymnon, in the historic village of Maroulas. It is just 3km from some of the best beaches on the North Coast of the island. The village has been classified as a ‘heritage’ site. Most of the buildings date back to at least the Venetian era and no new construction work can be carried out without the cooperation of the archaeological department. It is, however, a living, breathing community, too! The village has two tavernas and two kafeneions. There is a bus connection to Rethymnon, twice a day. For visitors arriving by plane, the village is conveniently situated: Heraklion airport is just 80 km away, and Hania airport is even closer – just 60km.

Finding Maroulas Leaving Rethymnon, going eastwards: From the village of Platanias, take the road to Arkadi. Follow this road for about 2km. On the left is a supermarket and opposite to the right is a turn to Agia Paraskevi and Maroulas. After about 100m there is a 3-way junction. Take the right turn to Maroulas and follow this road until you reach the central square of the village.
