Unique stone villa in Crete

Kastellos (Rethymno) is a delightful, traditional village in the heart of Crete, that gives you access to all sides of the island, facilitating your explorations, enjoying a unique environment with an excellent climate. The property is set at the side of the village, with marvelous views across the rooftops of the neighbor village of Armeni, across the valley all the way to the mountains. By staying here, one can experience the tranquillity, interrupted only by the sounds of nature. Watching the mountain turning purple during sunset and the moon rising over the valley is a magical and unforgettable experience. The villa can accommodate up to 10 persons (200m2), with 4 bedrooms and rooms that connect with one another (without doors), following the primary shape of the house, with maximum respect to its original architectural style, before the total renovation of 2003. There are 2 inside bathrooms (one with jacuzzi), and a third wc outside, next to the swimming pool. The villa has a fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with a fireplace, and TV featuring NETFLIX, DVD, and CD player. Art Villa Kastellos organizes art events, art courses, thematic weeks, and events. At the villa, one finds original works of art, created by the owner as well as many other Greek and international artists. The villa also, sometimes, hosts short-time exhibitions that the customers can enjoy, as well as art events and workshops. For our young friends (…and adults), you’ll find toys, games, books, music, and movies. In Italian, English, and Greek language. The house is not the best place for babes under 2 years old because of its layers ad stairs, but upon request, we can provide all necessary. There is a big private garden, swimming pool with a great view, many different levels equipped with couches, a big wooden dining table under the pergola and the private parking for 4 cars. In the garden, you find many herbs available for you to use for cooking. There is also a fully equipped BBQ, and plenty of space around it, where you can enjoy perfect family and friend evenings. All rooms have private balconies with a stunning view of the surrounding hills.
