Recommended Pool Villa/House Modern Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Wheelchair Access

Stylish luxury interiors plus a stunning, quiet location equals one knock-out four-bedroom retreat. Villa Myrtle is near the charming city of Rethymno on Crete’s glittering north coast. Not only is there a fully-equipped gym, serene spa-like Jacuzzi and private outdoor infinity pool, but the villa boasts breath-taking sea views from the floor-to-ceiling windows, bedroom balconies and outdoor terrace.

The main entrance of this modern two-storey villa leads to a bright open-plan living, kitchen and dining area, where you can relax with comfortably cushioned sofas, a fireplace and all the modern conveniences such as a television and internet. The décor is minimalist in style with whitewashed walls and natural-coloured furnishings giving an extra feeling of light and space. From the living room, there’s direct access to the main veranda, parking space, pool and garden.

With several sun loungers lining the swimming pool and a shaded kiosk, there are plenty of places for you to put your feet up. Perfect for a family-friendly stay, there’s also a separate shallower pool for children to splash about it, grassy spots for playing and a dedicated playroom indoors with a pool table, wall-mounted television and other games. The villa also provides a barbeque station where you can prepare an alfresco meal using fresh Cretan herbs from the garden.

The bedrooms are all equally sophisticated and inviting with windows showcasing the magnificent countryside vistas. Mattresses are made from comfortable organic fabric, and you can choose your pillow from the menu for a perfect night’s sleep. The master bedroom and the bedroom on the ground floor are privileged with an en-suite bathroom, while the other two share one bathroom. Oh, and not forgetting there’s also hydro-massage showers, a Jacuzzi and a fully-equipped gym.

Sitting pretty in the hillside in peaceful Kastellakia on the outskirts of Rethymno, Villa Myrtle is the ideal place to escape the stresses of everyday life. With the city centre and the beach only a three-minute drive away too, you can easily explore more of this beautiful part of Crete.

What you should know…

  • One of the bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor has wheelchair access – perfect for older family members or those who have restricted movement
  • The villa is on a hilltop overlooking the coastline. It’s therefore easier getting down to the beach, shops and restaurants than it is getting back. For this reason a car is recommended

Villa Myrtle is in a quiet and peaceful spot in rural Kastellakia on the outskirts of Rethymno, between Chania and Heraklion on Crete’s north coast. This idyllic part of the Greek island doesn’t just serve up plenty of golden sandy beaches, there’s also a well-preserved Venetian old town, top-notch waterfront restaurants and a vibrant nightlife. A short three-minute drive – or 2.6km walk – will take you into the historic and commercial centre of the town with plenty of amenities.

Thanks to the Ottomans and Venetians, Rethymno’s old town is an eclectic mix of mosques and Renaissance buildings, and there’s an impressive fortress, too. Seafood tavernas and lively bars line the boat-dotted harbour. Spend the afternoons browsing the boutique shops and markets or wander through the narrow streets and alleyways to find arched doorways and stone staircases. Stop off for an iced coffee at one of the cafés by the pretty Rimondi Fountain. You can also visit the hilltop Fortezza – a star-shaped, 16th-century citadel and another stunning example of ancient architecture. There are also magical waterfalls and the cave church of Saint Anthony Gorge.

For afternoons spend at the beach, you’ll be pleased to know you don’t have to walk far – there’s one in the middle of the town. It’s a 12km-long stretch of golden sand and has calm waters for swimming and snorkelling. It’s also just across the road from shops, cafés and restaurants so you can enjoy a Cretan meze, like fresh feta drizzled with olive oil, when you get peckish. There are also plenty of opportunities to take part in water sports like sea kayaking, parasailing and scuba diving.

For fun day trip, about a thirty-minute drive (18km southeast of Rethymno) will take you to the Sacred Monastery of Arkadi – golden stone buildings and flower-filled courtyards. From there you can walk through fields and meadows to the village of Pikris for lunch at a traditional taverna.
