About the property

Luxury 2 bedroom villa with private pool, only 50 metres from the beach

Villa Mathios is a brand new luxurious 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom villa with a large private pool just by the sea side. It is located only 50 metres from Sfakaki beach and the spacious veranda offers panoramic sea view.

On a walking distance from the villa, the guest will find tavernas, chemist, hairdresser, bakery, supermarkets, petrol station and Doctor's room.

The villa is located in the absolute center of Crete island, so it is an ideal starting point for all your excursions and all your visits to Crete's most interesting sites. Sfakaki is only 10 kilometres from Rethymno and 73 kilometres from either Heraklion and Chania airport.

Villa Mathios is build on one level. As you enter it you will see the living room with a fireplace, comfortable lounge couches and an open plan dining room with a dining table and chairs that leads to the kitchen, then to the 2 bedrooms with a common bathroom. Both bedrooms have two twin beds (that become a double bed when joined).

The kitchen is fully equipped with all kitchen utensils, fridge, dishwasher, microwave. There is also a modern washing machine. In the living room there is a flat LCD TV.

The interior decoration is modern and bright offering the guests great comfort and modern facilities.

There are individual operated A/C units throughout, private parking and a barbecue.

The swimming pool is 5 by 9 metres and it will offer you hours of relaxation and fun for you and your family.

The guests at Villa Mathios will enjoy the beautiful garden with the private pool, the spacious veranda overlooking the swimming pool and of course the great sea view. A car is not essential as there is a bus stop right in front and is at a walking distance to all amenities of Sfakaki area. The beautiful beach is also in a walking distance from the villa, just 50 metres away.

In just a few minutes walk you can visit the byzantine Arsani monastery that helped the establishment of many schools during the Turkish occupation and continued up to the 19th century. Also in a few minutes, by car, you can visit the famous 5th century Arkadi monastery, it’s great museum and enjoy the serene atmosphere inside its fortress walls.

Just what we wanted

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful and the pictures do accurately represent how nice the view facing the ocean is. The home owner was very nice and had dropped of fresh pastries from her shop several times and had no problems with us staying at the house later on our checkout date due to a flight change. The backyard has a private feel with the fence and boshes, the beach is pretty rocky so the pool was very nice, advertised as no car needed however if you want to see the best beaches in Crete and don't feel like spending forever on the bus I would highly recommend renting a car. Overall we were very pleased and so glad that we didn't go with a hotel

Top Urlaub in toller Villa mit Pool

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren 2 Wochen mit unseren beiden Kindern (15 + 17) in dieser traumhaften)Villa.

Schlüsselübergabe vor Ort klappte top, der Vermieter wohnt direkt nebenan.

Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und geräumig, entsprach genau den Bildern von Home Away. Der Garten ist sehr schön und durch die hohen Hecken von außen nicht einsehbar. Der Pool 9 x 5 Meter ist ca. 1,70 m tief.

Alle 3 Tage kam eine nette Griechin und hat die Fewo blitzeblank geputz, die Bettn bezogen, neue Handtücher gebracht. Der Pool wurde regelmäßig gesäubert und gewartet. Der Service war einfach perfekt!!

Von der Terrasse aus hat man einen Blick direkt auf das Meer. Der Strand ist nur wenige Meter entfernt aber leider nicht so schön. Mit dem Auto kann man aber viele schöne Strände in der näheren Umgebung problemlos erreichen. In Sfafkaki gibt es ein paar kleine, nette Tavernen (Adrianas Taverne ist sehr zu empfehlen) in denen man sehr gut und günstig essen kann. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es auch direkt im Ort. Ein Lidl befindet sich in 8 Km Entfernung kurz vor Rethymno.

Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit Villa Mateo und würden jederzeit wieder kommen. Sehr erholsamer, stressfreier und schöner Urlaub.
