This villa is a luxury villa located in the middle of the lovely old village of Meroulas, renowned for its Venetian houses. It is about 7 kms from the town of Rethymnon and just minutes away from some of the best beaches on the Northern coast of Crete. The house was originally two separate buildings, one (the two-storey section of the house) dating from the Venetian period, and the other (the one-storey section) dating from the 17th century Turkish period. The two sections were joined in 1990 and the house has since received an award from the Archaelogical Society in Athens as well as being featured in many Greek foreign magazines, including Vogue and Marie Claire.
A 400m2 patio courtyard surrounded by high stone walls has a small swimming pool, and is furnished with garden furniture and pots of flowering plants, offering peace and privacy. There are various terraces on different levels, including a Jacuzzi terrace (seating up to 8 people) outside the dining area and one of the bedrooms, and spacious upper sun terraces with glorious views across the countryside to the sea.
The house is accessed through a courtyard and an impressive conservatory-style entrance into a huge living room with old stone archways, a fireplace and several seating areas. On this level there is also a modern kitchen and dining area, an office and a bedroom. There is another bedroom in the other wing on the other side of the courtyard. The first floor is also divided into two wings, one having 2 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom and two bathrooms, and the other having a large terrace, furnished with sun loungers, a shaded seating area and views to the sea. The luxurious and tasteful interiors are also very well equipped including telephone, fax, satellite TV, video, radio, air conditioning and heating.
