There’s something for everyone when you vacation at the incredible Villa Monasteria, nestled in the Greek countryside with sweeping sea views, near the north coast of the island of Crete, in the azure Aegean Sea. This super luxury, detached villa, has seven spacious bedrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to sixteen guests, ideal for a large family gathering, or a group of friends sharing.

Villa Monasteria is built over four storeys out of classic Mediterranean whitewashed walls and local stone, with a tiled terrace that is home to a large swimming pool. The three hundred and ninety square metre property is set in its own grounds, surrounded by mature gardens, with tall trees and high stone walls for privacy, security, and shade. The villa has its own garage parking, an internal elevator, and comes with complimentary air conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout, as well as a Bluetooth sound system, and children’s amenities galore. The interiors are spacious, the furniture is contemporary, the appliances are state of the art, and the art is funky. The decor is a neutral background, with rainbow colour highlights, and the themed bathrooms are the stars of the show. The vibe is one of family holiday fun in the sun in a superb villa near the sea.

Enter the villa at the ground floor level, where there is a bright and breezy open-plan living space. The seating area has an L-shaped soft grey sofa, coffee and side tables, facing a sixty-five-inch flat-screen satellite television, an enclosed wood burning fire, and a full-sized pool table. The adjacent ten-seater dining set is ideal for some impressive indoor entertaining. The screened off, seriously smart wood and black marble kitchen is fully equipped with all the latest appliances and gadgets you will need to cater for your holiday and comes complete with a second dining set. Not only that when you stay at Villa Monasteria a complimentary buffet breakfast is served every day, but Sunday. The first of the seven beautifully-appointed double bedrooms can be found on the ground floor, as well as a handy guest WC. Take the stairs to the first floor, where there are a further three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with a double bed, TV and safe, and an ensuite bathroom. The other two bedrooms have a double bed, and twin beds, and share a bathroom. In the second-floor attic room, there is a double bedroom, with an ensuite bathroom, and a furnished sea view balcony. On the lower ground floor, there is a second living space with a seating area, that has a sofa bed and fold out bed for two guests, and a fully equipped kitchen. There are two more double bedrooms and two fabulous bathrooms. A games room with gym equipment, children’s toys, board games, a Ps4 console, and a sixty-five-inch TV, will keep everyone amused on cooler days. A laundry room completes the accommodation.

Step outside onto the tiled terrace and survey the vista over the lush green countryside out to sea and beyond. The centrepiece step entry swimming pool with a separate shallow children’s area is long enough for lengths and an afternoon dip. The pool is surrounded by modern sun loungers, swing chairs, shady parasols, and a pergola-covered day bed just made for two. There’s a children’s play area, a ping-pong table, a table football, and an outdoor cool down shower. Enjoy a morning coffee at the shaded soft seating spot. Meet for cocktails on the terrace to admire the sunset, before dining alfresco from dishes prepared in the outdoor kitchen on the built-in barbeque, where you can raise a toast to the most memorable holiday.

Villa Monasteria can be found nestled in the countryside in the quaint village of Tria Monasteria, near the town of Rethymno, on the north coast of the Greek island of Crete, in the Aegean Sea. The villa is seventy kilometres drive from Chania International Airport. Whether you are looking for a relaxing time sunbathing on sandy beaches, yearn for some culture and visit archaeological sites in the cradle of civilisation, or trek the trails through the local flora and fauna, before dancing the night away, there’s something for everyone with a holiday on the island of Crete.

The villa is near to the village of Tria Monasteria, where you will find local shops for provisions, and family-run bars and restaurants to sample some traditional Greek dishes. The best local beaches include Missiria, Pervolia, Adelianos Kampos, and Preveli Beach, with its magnificent pine forest. A six-kilometre drive will take you to the old town of Rethymno, with its Venetian harbour, winding streets full of souvenir shops, a sixteenth-century citadel, and an 1830s lighthouse. Visit the Archeological Museum and the Historical and Folklore Museum, before enjoying an ouzo and some freshly caught seafood in a seafront taverna. For those who love walking, explore the island’s three hundred caves, and hike over hillsides, streams, and rocky ravines to discover watermills and ruins. Stop along the way at a local winery and taste the fruits of the many vineyards. If you prefer the sea to land, all aboard a boat trip, where you can snorkel or scuba dive to underwater ruins, or put on your jet skis or paraglide at one of the many water sports clubs. An hour’s drive along the scenic coastal route will take you to the town and port of Heraklion. Take a tour around the ancient Palace of Knossos, visit the Archaeological Museum, and walk along the Venetian walls to the old quarter, where you can shop for souvenirs, before enjoying souvlaki and retsina, and live like a local.

Go further afield to Vai, Crete’s easternmost tip, where you will find lush forests and a unique date palm. Explore Psychro Cave, reputedly the birthplace of Zeus, and rock climb Mount Ida to find the Ideon Cave. Sitia Geopark is three hundred and fifty square kilometres of the island’s diverse eco-system, where you can trek through gorges, bathe on beaches, walk the wetlands, bird watch, and be at one with nature. Hike the Richtis Gorge, and stroll through streams to reach the twenty-metre waterfall, where you can cool off in the inviting pool. Find peace and solitude in the fifteenth-century Toplou Monastery, where you can see beautiful Byzantine icons.

Take a boat tour to visit the intriguing island of Spinalonga, a former leper colony and home to a Venetian fortress, it is now an open-air museum. No visit to Crete is complete without a trip to Agios Nikolaos, a harbour town that uniquely houses a lake in its centre, and is home to an Archaeological Museum, full of Minoan treasures. Stroll its charming streets packed with shops, cafes, bars, and tavernas, in which to sit and watch the local life go by.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

There are loads of things to do and places to see for your kids of all ages when you stay at Villa Monasteria. Let’s start the easy step entry private pool with a separate shallow children’s area, and as there are no set hours, they can splash and swim all day. Villa Monasteria is stuffed full of child-friendly facilities, including a dedicated play area in the house and garden, a table tennis and football table, a games room with lots of toys and books for kids of all ages, a Ps4 console, a few large screen TVs, and a pool table for your older ones.

The Aegean Sea is a safe place to enjoy snorkelling and underwater fish spotting, whilst for older children there are lots of centres to learn to scuba dive. All aboard a boat for a fun day out at sea is a great way for the family to spend time together, discover hidden coves, enjoy locally cooked food, stop off for a swim, and relax and sunbathe on deck. The family will love a day out at the Watercity Waterpark, an aquatic park set in a huge eight seven thousand square metres, with thirty-six water games, lots of swimming pools, and slippy slides to keep your kids amused all day. Whilst the adults can enjoy a day in their own dedicated area.

Children love a day out in Heraklion, ignite their interest in history with a visit to the Palace of Knossos and the Archaeological Museum, walk along the harbour walls, and enjoy a meal of local mezes in a family-friendly local taverna. Your kids will love the CRETaquarium, located in the town of Gournes, which is home to two and a half thousand aquatic species housed in sixty fish tanks. After the aquarium, take a short drive to Dinosauria Park, where you will find animatronic dinosaur models and fossil replicas. If theme parks are their thing, Labyrinth Park is a short drive away, let them get lost in a Greek mythology maze, practice their putting at the mini golf, learn to ride horseback, or shoot some arrows with a bit of archery, something to keep kids of all age groups amused. Go cross country in off-road Land Rover and open-top Jeep Safaris, see the Cretan countryside in a thrilling ride.

Travel further afield for days out by car or organised trips to Agios Nikolaos, a statue spot around the town’s central lake, climb the stairs and take in the culture of contemporary art, or learn about Minoan history in the Archaeological Museum. If they love nature, hike the island to see the local flora and fauna, find the cave that Zeus was born in, follow the stream trail to hidden waterfalls, and visit the open-air Sitia Geopark and discover Crete’s diverse ecosystem. A visit to Crete isn’t complete without a trip to Spinalonga, now an open-air museum, reached by a short boat trip from Elounda, once the home of a former leper colony and a ruined Venetian fortress, and now the setting for many a film, it makes for a fascinating day out for children and adults alike.
