Yorghy Fokas (OWNER) purchased this villa in 1426

Why Yorghy Fokas (OWNER) chose Rethymnon area

Slightly off of the center of the village, villa Maroulas, combining charm and tranquility full of privacy. Is the ideal starting point to discover the island.

The village, still a secret place, far from the tourist influences, situated on the north coast of Crete is at equal distance of Chania (CHQ) and Heraklion (HER) airports.

Located at 3km (1.8 mile) from one of the longest (17km long) sandy beach of Crete.A lot of water sports, tennis, mini golf, beach bar, clubs, and a water park (free entrance) are available.

In the center of the village, you will find 3 taverns, a cheese factory and a herbal store (walking distance).

The city of Rethymno is situated only 10 minutes by car and is the third city in Crete with about 35000 inhabitants. It is a town full of contrasts where the richness of the past blends with the throbbing student’s life (8000 students).

Rethymno offers its visitors the picturesque charm of the Venetian harbor and the animated narrow streets where you can find traditional shops alongside modern ones.

The market, which takes place three times a week, will really dip you into the heart of the traditional Cretan atmosphere.

Maroulas is a quiet village situated on the heights above Rethymno, facing the sea at an altitude of 150 metres and surrounded by greenery, a spring and several valleys.

In 1980, Maroulas was listed for its historical monuments but also for some of its houses including Villa Maroulas.

Amongst its rich historical heritage, visitors can discover important remains of ancient tombstones dating back to antiquity, two wonderful Venetian towers one of which is 44 metres high, a Byzantine church dedicated to the Ascension, a more recent church dedicated to the Virgin Mary and lastly a small chapel with iconostasis which adorns the small village square.

What makes this villa unique

Built in 1426, the villa is 540m² (5812 sqft) with high ceiling (3,6m), very luminous with large windows and has a 110m² (1184 sqft) open space opening on the courtyard with the heated pool.

Sitting above the village with stunning sea views.

The house has been lovingly and carefully restored highlighting the beautiful architectural characteristics while including some luxurious and sophisticated touches.

This exeptional Venetian construction is considered like a piece of art.

The exposed stone and graceful arches inside and outside pair nicely with local marble floors.

Luxurious and family friendly, this spacious house has a traditional architecture and offers full modern comfort.

A large screen can be rolled down in front of the windows leading to the courtyard, transforming the large lounge into a cinema room with amazing sound system, computer and WIFI.
