Argiro Villa I

Secluded Villa with panoramic views, private pool, total privacy, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, in Maroulas village, near Rethymno!


About the property

Argiro Villas, panoramic views

Argiro Villas are two similar Villas located 2 Kms from the village of Maroulas.

As you will enter the house the first thing that will catch your eye, is the breathtaking view of the balcony, overviewing the whole area of Maroulas village! Your look will first stand in the trees next to the house, then will wander upon the endless fields and olive groves and eventually will gaze the Cretan sea and meeting the sky, it will be lost in the horizon! And in the evening the sunset will steal your heart and bring peace to your mind! We are sure that you will spend many ours on that balcony, having breakfast or dinner or just enjoying family moments! You also like the sense of privacy and freedom in this wonderfully secluded Villa!

The situation of the Villas combines the calmness of the nature with easy access to modern amenities! In walking distance from the house, just 500 meters, you could reach a regional tavern and cafe in the village, as well as a mini market! The Villas are also just 3 Kms from Platanias, one of the best beaches on the North Coast of the island! After a short 5 minutes drive you could be in the heart of summer beat, amazing sandy beach, with a great selection of shops, restaurants & cafes by the sea, beach bars and even a pharmacy and doctor's office. On the other hand Maroulas village is also 2 Kms away and offers you the opportunity to take an inside look of life in the village, where there are two tavernas and two cafes! Anyone with an interest in shopping, clubbing, dinning out or swimming, will find out that Rethymno offers many and satisfactory choices.

Great Location, great host.

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay. The villa was very clean and had all the facilities that we needed.

The host Mr Nikos was excellent and looked after us very well, he was around every day to ensure that the pool was clean and ready for use.

I would recommend this villa to others and if ever back in Crete, would certainly be visiting again.

A Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The views from the villa are even better than shown in the pictures - truly spectacular. The villa itself is well equipped, clean and spacious, with good air conditioning. Our teenage children appreciated the excellent wifi! Its location in the hills above Rethymno means that there is generally a pleasant breeze to reduce the heat. The pool is well kept and regularly cleaned. The garden is lovely with hibiscus, roses and other flowers, with olive trees outside. Although there are two villas on the site, they are around 100 metres apart and each totally private. Both the booking agent Valia and owner Nikos were very helpful and efficient. There is a LIDL supermarket ideally located 10 minutes drive away at the junction with the main road. Nearby Rethymno has excellent beaches and a beautiful old harbour and fortress. Other reviewers have commented on lack of kitchen equipment but we found everything we needed except a pizza cutting wheel; the local supermarket quickly resolved this and we are pleased to report that the villa now has one of these as well! We loved our time at this villa and hope to return.

Lovely villa in a secluded quiet spot

  • 4 of 5

Villa was ideal for us. We all were in need of some quiet time and this did the trick. A car is essential as the villa is up a very twisty road.

The villa could have done with more utensils - there wasn't even a jug. We had to go and buy everything for the excellent BBQ. The villa also had no information at all about the local restaurants/ bars/ sights etc - this would have really helped.

We found the restaurants in Platanes to be generally disappointing so spent our evenings in Rethymno, a 10 minute drive away . Loved Chania, a well worth hour's drive.

I'm not sure if we would return to this part of Crete as found the majority of beaches too stony and the sea too dangerous to swim in - again some advice on this would have been useful.

Generally though, had a lovely break.

Beautiful location with fabulous veiws

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this lovely Villa. The views are truly beautiful. The pool is fantastic and the villa is lovely, clean and comfortable. We stayed for 2 weeks with 3 adults and 3 children (aged 13, 11 and 8), the children spent hours in the fabulous pool. If your looking for a private villa in the country with a short 10 minute drive from shops, tavernas and the beach then this is perfect. Valia and Mr Nikos were very helpful and accommodating, from us booking our holiday, to us heading home. Thank you both for a wonderful stay on your beautiful island.

Hidden Greek gem

  • 5 of 5

On arrival the villa was everything we had hoped for and more. The views were outstanding, the villa was spotless and had everything you would need.

Nikos was there to greet us with a warm Greek smile & made us very welcome.

If you are looking to get away for some peace this is the place, the nearby town has everything there to suit all.

Just 15 minutes away from the town of Rethymno lies the historic village of Maroulas. A scenic drive through the olive groves will lead you to the village, which is built on top of a hill at an altitude of 240 meters and has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value. For this reason, the construction of new buildings should be carried out with the cooperation of the archaeological department. A restaurant can be found within 500 meters walking distance from the Villas, as well as a long sandy beach, at a distance of 9 minutes away by car.

Shopping facilities for you r everyday need can be found in Platania, such as a bakery, an ATM machine, a petrol station, a pharmacy, as well as well stocked super markets.

The Venetian influence is very obvious in the village, as most of the buildings date back to at least the Venetian era, when two towers, which are still present today, and other buildings with loopholes, were built. The visitor can also admire numerous cisterns, serpentine narrow streets, chimneys and large arched stone doors of Venetian mansions all around the village, as well as an old oil press. In summer you might as well appreciate the rare and unique aroma of herbs and flowers, the sound of the natural spring water and the shadow of the giant plane trees!

Also, worth visiting is the church of Prophet Elias at the top of the hill, which offers panoramic view of the village and the Cretan Sea and gorge. In the village there is a feast in honour of Prophet Elias on the 20th of July.

As you walk around in Maroulas, you travel back in time in times very different from our own and the scenery brings you images of princesses, forbidden loves, white horses and dragons…apart from the dragons, the rest might be true!
