Contemporary hillside villa near Arkadi Monastery
18 guests · 8 bedrooms · 8 baths
This stunning luxury home is situated on the north shore of Crete, in the coastal countryside near Rethymno. Set amid lush gardens and olive groves, the 6,000-square-meter estate enjoys breathtaking sea views from virtually every living area. Ample outdoor spaces include a 100-square-meter infinity swimming pool, lounges and play areas, and multiple alfresco dining tables. Eight deluxe bedroom suites offer exquisite privacy to sixteen travelers, ideal for families, destination wedding guests, and large groups of friends.
The villa offers an expansive venue for festive gatherings and special occasions, along with private spaces for peaceful relaxation. Tiered terraces extend from the main house, featuring lounge areas, a lawn, and a sparkling swimming pool lined with sun chairs and a canopied bed. The primary alfresco table is perched in a pavilion above the pool, accompanied by a charcoal grill, with fabulous sea views and lovely hanging lanterns for nighttime meals. There are two other outdoor tables on the patios flanking the kitchen.
The main interior living area opens to the terraces through floor-to-ceiling glass doors, infusing the home with dreamy breezes and views. Fresh white surfaces glow with sea-reflected light, accentuating the fine wood accents and touches of rich color. The open-concept space features an oval dining table and a comfortable lounge with TV. The kitchen is fully equipped with chef-grade appliances and enjoys easy access to all of the dining areas.
There are two bedrooms in the main house: a master suite on the upper level and a king guest suite on the lower level. The other six suites are nestled inside independent bungalows—five attached to the main house, and one in a separate guesthouse located below the pool terrace. All of the bedrooms have superb ensuite bathrooms and access to a balcony or terrace. The guesthouse opens to an expansive terrace with sublime views.
The countryside around Rethymno features enchanting hiking trails, wineries, and beaches, while the medieval city itself is just a short drive away. The larger cities of Heraklion and Chania are also within easy reach.
