What we like about this property

A lovely update of a magnificent historic home, elegantly and distinctively restored. This is a true treasure that respects it’s heritage and architectural significance with sophisticated, stylish ease.

Description

Built in the early 1400s, this large and luminous villa is a historic monument set in the hills above Maroulas which is recognized by the Greek government as an important heritage site.  Sitting above the town with stunning views out to sea, the home has been lovingly and carefully restored highlighting the beautiful architectural characteristics while including some luxurious and sophisticated touches.

The classic Venetian construction was considered state of the art in the Middle Ages and has stood the test of time. The exposed stone and graceful arches inside and out pair nicely with sleek new marble floors, large bay windows that brighten and expand the interiors, and lofty ceilings. Luxurious but family friendly, this expansive home is traditional and understated with comfortable but refined furnishings and decor.    

With five double bedrooms and four baths, the villa sleeps up to twelve guests and features warm, expansive living spaces inside and out. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped to serve everyone inside or poolside and comes with a fully stocked wine cellar. Head to the rooftop terrace for some stunning views over the Aegean or enjoy the pool and jacuzzi in privacy and peace in the walled gardens.

    This really is an extraordinary Airbnb – in a gorgeous location. I spent nine nights here in April with my wife, our two boys (6 and 2), my mother, sister and mother-in-law. There was plenty of room for us! It was our first time in Crete and this was a pretty incredible introduction. Yorghy is an amazing host – communicative and helpful both in advance and during our stay. He put us in contact with a very reasonable local car hire firm – cheaper than anything we found online – arranged an absolute feast to be cooked for us at the house on our first evening, recommended loads of great places to go, drove us around the surrounding area when we first arrived to show us the best beaches, places to buy food, get coffee (etc), he stocked up the house in advance with some groceries to see us through the first 24 hours – etc etc. To say he went above and beyond the call of duty would be an understatement – we had a maid service to clean the house and do our washing every day at no extra cost. We’ve stayed in a lot of lovely Airbnbs before, but that was a first. The house – castle – itself is stunning, and even bigger than the pictures make it look. The pool is lovely and the roof terrace massive. There were loads of toys for our kids to play with, which was a big help – they absolutely loved the place. The village itself was a real highlight – near enough to Rethymno to do everything you want to do there, but just far enough away to feel like you’ve discovered a real secret. There are several lovely restaurants in the village and nearby, all very family friendly. My son got to try milking a goat in one of them (Taverna Katerina – highly recommended)! Crete was a revelation for us, and I couldn’t imagine a more special or appropriate place to stay on this historic island than Yorghy’s Venetian Castle. We will be back!

    Yorghy’s Villa is absolutely fantastic for a large family or small group that wants to enjoy a quiet vacation far enough from the hordes of tourists as to enjoy the peaceful village for a few days, but close enough to enjoy the beaches and attractions of Rethymno. The villa is both beautiful and comfortable, with a large dining table that easily fit all ten of us. There is a good combination of private and public spaces and nice amenities – pool, movie screen, children’s toys etc… The view from the roof is amazing, and the same goes for several points just minutes walk away. There are several Tavernas in the village, and a minimarket a few minutes drive away. Yorghy was the perfect host, always there when needed, and also full of information about the area. Thank you for a great vacation!

    Yorghy was an excellent host. A group of 10 of us booked the villa. Originally it was 8 and he made seamless accommodation for the extra persons. On the day of arrival, he met us close to the villa as promised, showed us around the villa itself and then spent almost 2 hours showing a few of us around the village. He made some excellent recommendations for the beach and restaurants and we loved them all, especially Fantastiko which has an amazing view and just as amazing food at unbelievable prices- the best food. The villa is just as described and the photos are accurate. It is large and contains all the amenities we needed. Yorghy was available as required. Parking is a bit tight as would be expected in a small village. I would definitely recommend this villa and Yorghy to anyone who is considering staying in Rethymnon.

  • Fabrice, August 12, 2017

    Amazing house, a great blend of centuries old Venetian architecture and modern cool design. Super comfortable in a lovely little village, but minutes from shopping/beach, and 15 minutes from a cool beautiful lively town. Yorghy was a fabulous host, welcoming us like kings and personally showing us the best places to go for authentic food and fun. Truly a magic experience

    Fabrice

  • We stayed with 9 adults and 4 children (under 5 years old). We could not have been happier or more impressed. Yorghy went over and above for us by pointing out local attractions, actually taking us on a brief tour of the best local places to eat and hangout and offering his assistance at a phone call. The photos do not do this place justice. It is set close to shops and the beach and there is a lot of history within walking distance. Parking is available directly in front of the villa. We had 3 cars and no problems. The cleaner is fantastic and the wine cellar provides a welcome change from the local wines! We were a group ranging from 6 months old to 60 years old and everyone was super happy. I hope many more people get to stay here and enjoy Crete. I cannot say enough in favour of this villa and Yorghy.

    If all holiday experiences were like the one that Yorghy created the world would indeed be a fantastic place. The villa is amazing, it was like we were living in a dreamland for a week. The beautiful historic Venetian building mixed with contemporary touches was spot on. The town of Maroulas is fascinating and it feels a world away from the tourist towns on the coast. The cheesemaker down the road was an exciting and delicious bonus. Taverna Katerina was hilarious. Yorghy took time to show us around and his recommendations were spot on. The drive to the South Coast was excellent. We loved Taverna Fantastiko. And knowing where to shop for what makes the holiday so much easier. There is a lot to see and do in the world but Crete and in particular Villa Maroulas definitely is calling my family back. An authentic holiday experience is a very rare thing and Villa Maroulas really stands out from the crowd.

  • Cheril, April 16, 2017

    This villa is perfect for families with children, for groups that want to be off-the-beaten-track, and for guests that want a base for exploring the region. Yorghy, as all guests note, is the perfect host and helped us with every request and query, from arranging a chef to cook breakfast each day, to providing directions and restaurant recommendations. If you want an authentic experience on Crete in a unique/historical villa, which is footsteps from a biofarm, traditional tavernas, and fields of olive trees and fresh oregano, this is the place.
