Luxury villa holidays in Rethymno & Central Crete

A luxury villa holiday in the heart of Crete is to be in great company – as legend has it, this is the birthplace of Zeus, and certainly the mountains and beaches create a worthy setting. However, villages and tavernas tell a different story of simple pleasures for a holiday that’s deeply relaxing too.

Our carefully chosen villas in Rethymno & Central Crete include private pools to ensure you can make the most of the sunshine without having to go far from your own front door, but for those who wish to explore, turquoise waters and sandy beaches are waiting, along with the impressive ruins of Knossos and a host of lesser-known archaeological sites that are still imbued with the myths and legends of an ancient history.

Getting out and about in Rethymno

Medieval Rethymno is the third largest city in Crete, its harbour and charming Old Town combining Venetian and Ottoman architecture. Weekly markets, an archaeological museum, Venetian fortress and plentiful cafés and restaurants are offset by an attractive harbour where an evening stroll is a wonderful way to complete a day before returning to the comfort of your luxury holiday villa.
