A welcome basket is included plus WiFi, air conditioning and a 24/7 concierge service. The property has a dishwasher and a washing machine.

Why Kids Love it

The residence has a lovely private pool with a waterfall feature; there is also a shared play area with ping pong table, large playgrounds, football table and an elliptical machine. Plenty of items are provided for babies and toddlers, including a crib, high chair, baby bath, stroller, stair gates, stove safety guards, intercom/monitor and children’s books and toys. Please request anything you might need in advance. The lounge has a DVD player and a Playstation console.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 7 nights. Note that the pool has no fence and the main living space opens onto the pool area directly; for those traveling with crawling babies or toddlers, extra supervision will be required (and by consultation with the host, safety gates may be possible). The pool can be heated in cooler months. An electric bike is available for the villa and more can be rented via the host. The residence is suitable for those with mobility issues - there is a double bedroom with direct access to the pool terrace, and a bathroom with facilities for disabled guests on the ground floor. Pool towels provided. Twice-weekly housekeeping, pool and garden attendance included. First aid kit and alarm system with cameras are also available.

About the Location

The residence is on a small hill in Kyrianna, 13km east of Rethymno on the north coast of Crete. The local area is rich with churches and chapels and is around 5 minutes’ drive from the nearest beach. Supermarkets and shops can be found in Rethymno, and there are restaurants a short drive away. Car rental is essential in Crete and in this area in particular, although there are bus routes to Rethymno. There is free private parking at the villa. Chania airport is 75 minutes’ drive away; Heraklion airport is an hour away.

Accommodation Details

This 120sqm villa includes a 25sqm swimming pool, terrace and lawn plus jacuzzi, BBQ and outdoor dining area. Inside the property has an open plan living room with lounge, dining area and kitchen. The lounge has a double sofa bed. The bedrooms and living room are air conditioned. There is a double bedroom with full/double bed and bathroom on the ground floor. The upper floor has a bedroom with 2 twin beds and a balcony with countryside views. A family bathroom with a tub is also on this level. The residence has a shared play area.

Style Notes

Modern Greek. In the open plan living room, soft grey tones dominate the space, giving an industrial, yet cosy style. The soft fabrics, cosy fireplace and comfortable sofas are a welcoming touch. The kitchen is well equipped with items including a freezer, electric stove, kettle, toaster, sandwich maker, microwave, French coffee maker, espresso machine, food processor and juice maker; the dining table can seat up to 6. We love the sleek, pared-back style, the cage lights and the open wood beams in the bedrooms, making it feel cozy and relaxing.

Crete, Greek Islands

Ruins, rocky outcrops and rural charm

Off the southern coast of mainland Greece, beautiful Crete is the largest of the islands, packed with rural charm, archeological sites and fabulous mountains - a land where shepherds still tend their flocks wearing traditional dress. Blow the kids’ minds at the enormous Samariá Gorge, tantalize them with tales of ancient civilization, and check out the cave where Zeus was said to have been born.
