5 bedroom villa located on a private hill 5km away from the beach and the city!

Villa Victoria is approved by Greek Tourism Organization with license number: 1041K10003030401.

Villa Victoria is a 380 sq.m luxury villa designed especially to accommodate families! This striking residence is located on private land on the outskirts of Rethymno town, just next to Gallos village and is accessible through an automatic gate and a private driveway leading to the house. Engulfed in nature and residing next to a small gorge this property is completely surrounded by a stone wall and fully protected by a camera security system. 

Revel in the quietness and tranquility of the natural environment while indulging in the splendid views.

Totally isolated but very close to everything with Rethymno town only minutes away, this villa offers full privacy to our guests and numerous facilities for the whole families entertainment.

This three-storey villa can accommodate 10 people in beds and a maximum of 14 people if necessary. 

Marble stairs lead you up to the front door and on entrance to the villa there is a spacious open plan area consisting of the living room with a fireplace, a home cinema, the indoor dining area and access to the main balcony. Also on this floor there is a fully equipped kitchen two bedrooms with double beds and a bathroom with shower. All have direct access to the pool and barbecue area.

What makes this villa unique

The unique benefits of villa Victoria according to my opinion are:

- Panoramic sea views.

- The location, as the villa is situated a couple of minutes away from the town of Rethymno where you can find everything you possibly need besides and all of the main attractions (Fortress, Rimondi Fountain, minarets etc.) Also, it is an ideal base for making excursions as it is close to the national road found in the centre of Crete.

- Very close to various sandy beaches with water sports on the North coast.

- Full privacy outdoors and owing to the fact the villa has its own private road there is no disturbance by traffic or neighbouring houses.  

- Spacious indoor areas with all kind of facilities such as a gym and home cinema.

- Many facilities for children: playground, free bicycles, pool games and a playroom.

- Fully equipped and organised barbecue area with 2 large outdoor dinning tables.

- Fully equipped gym area with bathroom.

- Huge fenced private area with many spots to relax under the trees.

- Vegetable and fruit gardens whose produce can be fully taken advantage of!

- There is an organised tennis area with 4 courts at a distance of 600 meters where guests have open access!

- The hospitality of the owner and his family who will be on hand with helpful advice and information whenever it is needed. The owners have a wide knowledge of the island and will be only to willing to suggest places of interest and routes to get there.

An amazing villa which surpassed our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a fortnight at Villa Victoria and feel completely refreshed and relaxed. Villa Victoria is by far the best equipped villa we have ever stayed in. Absolutely everything is provided for you...charcoal for the BBQ, wood for the Pizza oven, dishwasher tablets etc. If we needed anything or had any questions the owners, Vicky and Kostas, were easily contactable and readily helped us out from helping us sort out car hire to helping us order food to be delivered. When we arrived at the villa we were met by Vicky and Kostas who immediately made us feel very welcome and had even cooked us some delicious food which was very much appreciated at half past ten at night. The grounds are exactly as the pictures show and there is so much space that you can always find a quiet spot, either in the shade or the lovely Cretan sun. The villa was spotlessly clean and was kept that way throughout the stay, being thoroughly cleaned every two days. There is a small mini market within walking distance which has all the basic necessities and is run by a very friendly local. There is also Christo's Taverna about a 15 minutes walk away which we would definitely recommend for good value, home cooked Greek food with a wonderfully welcoming host.

Thank you Vicky and Kostas for a fantastic fortnight.

Highly recommended villa

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous holiday. We rented this villa and our expectations were more than met. The family were so welcoming and helpful that you couldn't expect anything more. The villa is wonderful and the pool and facilities are just amazing! Everyone is so helpful. There is also a line in the house directly to the manager and they organised anything and everything we needed easily.

An astonishing experince

  • 5 of 5

When you arrive later in the night (due to a flight delay), and you desire only to have a shower and eat something before pass out on a bed, it's difficult that something or someone can amaze you. Vicky and Kostas were able to amaze all of us with their hospitality. An excellent Cretean dinner was in the kitchen ready for all of us (we were 5 adults and 6 children), the villa was perfectly prepared for our arrival and we found also all we need for the day after breakfast and not only.

The villa is beautiful, full of everything you need and has a very high level households and equipment. It is surrounded by stillness and peace and you can reach the beach in 10 minutes by car, as well as Rethymno downtown.

The bedrooms are big and comfortable and there is a planned cleaning service every 2 days.

I can tell more and more about the villa, it's perfect. But what makes your experience so special are Vicky and Kostas, with their availability, their willingness to help and support you 24h and their distinguished hospitality.

Thanks guys, you are the best owners I ever met!

A stunning and beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have spent the last 10 years renting villas in Europe and this is undoubtedly the best villa we have stayed in. Throughout the booking process we liaised with Kostas Vasilakis who was extremely friendly and very helpful and kept us updated with information regarding our booking at regular intervals. He also recommended autodifferent.com who we booked our airport transfers with and also our car hire. We spoke a number of times with the area manager Andreas Manioudakis who like Kostas was very friendly and helpful.

Upon our arrival we were greeted by the owners Vicky and her husband Kostas and their children. After showing us around their fabulous villa they purchased a meal for us all which was delivered to the villa. This was a kind and thoughtful gesture which was greatly appreciated by our group of 9 people. Once we were settled in Vicky and Kostas left us to explore the villa and it's grounds. They had also left us a very comprehensive welcome package including tea, coffee, wine, beer and food which again was very kind of them.

The villa is extremely well equipped especially the kitchen and the barbeque areas. Adjacent to the kitchen is a dining area which easily accommodates 10 people as does the dinning area at the barbeque area. As well as the barbeque there is an oven which is heated by burning wood and we were able to bake pizzas in it. For the more adventurous Vicky recommends cooking a roast a dinner!

The swimming pool is large and is an eco pool and is surrounded by sun loungers, umbrellas, and a further seating area. There is also a comfortable sofa area near the barbeque and further seating in the orchard.

Vicky and Kostas had showed us the orchard and the vegetable garden and invited us to pick as much fruit and vegetables as we wanted, which we did and it was very tasty.

The villa inside was decorated and furnished to a high standard with all rooms being air conditioned with electric shutters which could be closed at night. The lounge was extremely comfortable as was the main terrace which looks out to sea. The beds were comfortable and the linen was changed every 3 days by Maria who once again could not have been more helpful and kept the villa clean and tidy. The gym is also fully equipped for the more energetic!

Finally we would like to thank Vicky and Kostas and the people of Crete for making our holiday so special and memorable and we will have no hesitation in booking this wonderful villa again. Many thanks, Martin.

More then great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at villa Victoria with a family of 12 persons, ages from 2 months till 83 years, and we were all very happy during our 12-day stay. The villa is very spacious and luxe, the garden is beautiful and attracts a lot of butterflies and birds, the pool big enough for ours of fun, all day a little wind, Rethymnon is a great city reachable within a few minutes, cleaning by Maria was spotless and most memorabele was the very warm welcome Vicky and her family gave us the first night: we did arrive very late and hungry, they orders in for us a great Greek meal and there were could drinks (and the fridge makes icecubes...). It was an unforgettable and more then great experience!!

The villa is located on the outskirts of Rethymno town in a totally private area, near the small village of Gallos and the University of Crete.

The surrounding area is rural and peaceful. Situated next to a small gorge it is often possible to sight wild birds such as eagles which glide through the gorge and pheasants that wander in the nearby fields. This is what makes Villa Victoria special and even though the town is close by you will rest peacefully and still feel “away from it all”!

A stroll or a jog along your own private lane and the neighbouring roads are a great way to start your day and with such beautiful surroundings you are sure to refresh and re-energise. Just a little further on it is possible to reach the old part of Gallos village and experience its rustic charm. The newer part of Gallos hosts 2 mini markets and a great traditional tavern. Also, an organized tennis court is located just 600 meters away.  More shops, seafront restaurants and supermarkets are only a couple of minutes away by car (3 km) in the Koumpes area at  the entrance of Rethymno town. Koumpes also has the closest sandy beach to the villa, however the more organized cosmopolitan beach of Rethymno is only 5 km away.

Furthermore, the villas location provides a great base for making excursions around Crete as the main national road is only a few minutes away.

Staying at our villa will give you the advantage of relaxing in a quiet private area while literally being close to everything, a perfect choice for all the family!

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
