This unique privately owned villa, which is a listed historical building, has a magnificent sea-view, and is situated on a hillside just 6 km from Rethymnon, just 3km from some of the best beaches on the North Coast of the island. The village itself has been classified as a ‘heritage’ site.

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.
