Pool Modern Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Walk to Village All Bedrooms En-Suite

Grand Villa Zevra with its spacious five bedrooms, luxuriously comfortable furnishings and a prime spot in Skordili, Rethymno, the place to be in Crete. This lavish family-friendly villa is set in five acres of private landscaped grounds and boasts a generously-sized swimming pool with tranquil nature views. Outside, adults can lounge on one of the cushioned bean bag chairs while children are playing in the colourful play area (in full view so you still can keep an eye on your little ones).

Inside, the décor fuses classic and modern to beautiful effect with high beamed ceilings, cream-coloured walls and bespoke art pieces. Large glass windows create an extra feeling of light and space and let the natural outdoors in. Relax in-between swimming or sight-seeing in the large living area with comfy sofas and television. For your meals, there’s a modern fully-equipped kitchen with everything you’ll need for cooking, and you can dine indoors or al fresco on the balcony terrace.

On the ground floor, there are two en-suite bedrooms; one double with a sofa bed that turns into an extra double and one twin bedroom – both with a shared balcony. On the first floor, there’s a small office space and the spacious en-suite master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, uninterrupted sea views from its private balcony and a beautiful marble bathroom (complete with spa-like tub). There’s also another twin bedroom and a double en-suite bedroom – both with picture-perfect forest views.

Comfortably sleeping between fourteen and sixteen guests, Villa Zevra is the ideal base for a large family or grounds of friends. Oh, and did we mention there’s a ping-pong table and barbeque too? For when you’d like to explore the surrounds, the charming Cretan village of Atsipopoulo is a short walk away. There you can pick up essentials in the supermarkets and shops or try local cuisine in one of the restaurants. Or, drive 2km to Rethymno city with its historic Venetian castle, picture-worthy harbour and a lovely old town with bougainvillea-draped cobbled streets.

Villa Zevra is in traditional Atsipopoulo village on the popular Greek island of Crete. It oozes laid-back charm with its old buildings and friendly atmosphere. From the villa, it’s only a few minutes’ walk to local shops, supermarkets and tavernas. Atsipopoulo is also 5km from the charming north-coast town of Rethymno with its Venetian citadel of Fortezza, Venetian Harbour and Old Town. The harbour is filled with coloured fishing boats and lined with tavernas, bars and restaurants. Look out for freshly-caught seafood or classic Greek dishes like souvlaki (tender cuts of meat) and moussaka.

Culture lover? Get your fix at Rethymno Lighthouse (built in 1830) or get an insight into traditional life at the Historical and Folklore Museum with local crafts like textiles and ceramics. Visit the beautiful Venetian mansions in Arkadiou Street or relax with a coffee at one of the cafés.

You won’t have to walk far to get to the beach either – it’s right in the middle of town. Rethymno beach boasts a long 12km stretch of soft sand and shallow swimming waters. Bordering it is a promenade, and it’s just across the road from shops, cafés and restaurants for when you get peckish during the day. There’s also brilliant turquoise waters at the nearby beaches of Skinaria, Ammoudi and Damnoni, all located near Plakias village (about 30km south of Rethymno).

For adventuring further afield, the Sacred Monastery of Arkadi is about a 30-minute drive from Rethymno. The holy spot is a peaceful oasis of golden stone buildings and flower-filled courtyards. From here, you can walk through fields and meadows to the village of Pikris and stop for lunch.
