Holiday Rental House
If you have ever dream about a villa holiday in blissful seclusion where you can lose all sense of time, then this unique property will prove ideal, enjoying one of the most enviable positions you are ever likely to find in Crete.Perched on a hilltop and on the edge of the sea, the views are stupendous and its immaculate interior match its magnificent location. The villa has two floors, each with its own private entrance into a three bedroom apartment.For all intents and purposes the two units are entirely separate and private and in our view it is also ideally suited to a larger group who may wish to rent the whole property exclusively.

The swimming pool is situated in the rocks to one side and is accessed by a common path from the house.Whether you are lounging on the terraces around the pool or relaxing on the spacious private balconies, the views are fabulous and the silence broken only by the waves against the rocky shoreline below. The standard of the interiors is high, each apartment consists of two bathrooms one with shower, and the other with a jacuzzi bath, three good size bedrooms, one double and two twins, some bedrooms have a balcony, a spacious sitting/dining room with a fully equipped kitchen in a section off the sitting area. The sitting room which has a fireplace, is tastefully furnished with comfortable sofas and chairs, a wide glazed window with two doors leads to a huge balcony with views that will take your breath away.Each apartment has the added convenience of a dishwasher, and a washing machine is provided in the larger of the two bathrooms. With a constant breeze for which Crete is well known, the villa never feels stuffy and yet air-conditioning is provided in every room. MHTE: 1042K122K0015400More

The only way to describe Villa Penelope is perfection. The pictures online do not do it justice- which is very hard to believe. It truly is more remarkable in person. I travelled to Villa Penelope with my husband, his family, and my family. A total...More

One or two small grocery shops are in the area but there are many more shops and restaurants in and around the seaside villages in the peninsular.
