Secluded Villa with panoramic views, private pool, total privacy, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, in Maroulas village, near Rethymno!
Argiro Villas are two similar Villas located 2 Kms from the village of Maroulas.
As you will enter the house the first thing that will catch your eye, is the breathtaking view of the balcony, overviewing the whole area of Maroulas village! Your look will first stand in the trees next to the house, then will wander upon the endless fields and olive groves and eventually will gaze the Cretan sea and meeting the sky, it will be lost in the horizon! And in the evening the sunset will steal your heart and bring peace to your mind! We are sure that you will spend many ours on that balcony, having breakfast or dinner or just enjoying family moments! You also like the sense of privacy and freedom in this wonderfully secluded Villa!
The situation of the Villas combines the calmness of the nature with easy access to modern amenities! In walking distance from the house, just 500 meters, you could reach a regional tavern and cafe in the village, as well as a mini market! The Villas are also just 3 Kms from Platanias, one of the best beaches on the North Coast of the island! After a short 5 minutes drive you could be in the heart of summer beat, amazing sandy beach, with a great selection of shops, restaurants & cafes by the sea, beach bars and even a pharmacy and doctor's office. On the other hand Maroulas village is also 2 Kms away and offers you the opportunity to take an inside look of life in the village, where there are two tavernas and two cafes! Anyone with an interest in shopping, clubbing, dinning out or swimming, will find out that Rethymno offers many and satisfactory choices.

This spacious home is well appointed, beautifully maintained and of an appealing size and layout that works well for many different group configurations, perfectly equipped for modern day vacationers. The Villa easily accommodates up to six people, so three couples can enjoy the space together and of course it is ideal for families!

Welcome to Crete!
Comfortable and spacious villa with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms located in a great position!
Panoramic views, total privacy, private pool, in Maroulas, near Rethymno! Close to wonderful sandy beaches, and 500 meters from restaurant!
On arrival the villa was everything we had hoped for and more. The views were outstanding, the villa was spotless and had everything you would need.
Nikos was there to greet us with a warm Greek smile & made us very welcome.
If you are looking to get away for some peace this is the place, the nearby town has everything there to suit all.
We have just returned from an idyllic, 2 week holiday, in this super villa and are missing it very much! The location is perfect as the villa stands into the gentle slopes of olive groves and from each of the balconies you can see the breathtaking view of the bay. There were many nights spent on the balcony enjoying a drink with a spectacular view of both Platanias and Rethymno.
The villa is really well kept with the linen and towels being changed regularly and the rooms were spotless. Every bed was incredibly comfortable and the air conditioning was very efficient and quiet. The lay out of the villa would allow for larger groups to easily still have more than enough living space and it was well equipped.
The pool is perfect and again was kept so clean. The owner, Mr Nikos is wonderful- there is nothing he was not willing to do to make our stay comfortable. He even purchased an inflatable for our son for our arrival. The pool is kept beautifully warm from the sun which was great as we had a few night swims as the pool is lit up. The loungers were so comfy we fell asleep on these many times. Great villa for adults and children alike.
The location is perfect as everything is so easily accessed by car- many excellent restaurants and tavernas only being a 5-10 minute drive and cabs were easy to get too. The local beach is beautiful too and so much to see and do on the island.
We will most definitely be returning and want to thank Mr Nikos for such a wonderful holiday. Valia was very efficient in all of her communications and answered all of my queries really promptly and clearly.
This villa is all about the views. From the garden, pool and various balconies, the views across the sea and the countryside are superb, particularly the sunset view from the living room balcony.
The villa is located behind secure gates and the pool area is well equipped with good sunbeds. The kitchen is adequate: crockery, cutlery, cooking dishes and salad bowls are at a minimum but there is a good cooker and fridge and an excellent barbecue and seating area just beside the pool.
The villa is very well maintained with regular cleaning (both the villa itself and the pool) and sheets and towels being replaced every few days. The property manager, Mr Nikos, is charming and helpful, as is Valia, from whom we rented. For example, being a family of voracious readers, we organised to have our holiday reading shipped to Valia's office in Rethymnon in advance, which Mr Nikos then delivered to our villa on our arrival - now that's good service!
We spent most of our days between the villa / pool and Rethymnon, which is a lovely town. It has a beautiful, long promenade which is excellent for walking early in the morning before it gets too hot. The beach is very clean and the sea gets deep so gradually that even when there are lots of people in the water, it is never crowded. The old town has a great shopping area. We particularly liked the Juice Bar (Souliou 62 - the freshest fruit, nothing frozen, blended by the lovely Lillian), Avli restaurant (Xanthoudidou 22) and Brew Your Mind coffee shop (Arkadiou 251). We also ate very good take-away pizzas on the beach a few times, watching the sunset as the kids played and swam, from Pizza di Napoli.
Overall: I thoroughly recommend both this villa and Rethymnon. Exceptionally friendly people and a beautiful area.
We stayed two weeks in villa No. 1.
The house lived up to our expectations.
The pool area was clean, here we spent many hours.
We appreciated that the villa was very private.
Mr Nikos, the owner was very helpful and when we had any question he was on location in less then 20 minutes.
We spent many evenings at the grill and realized that a improvement of the house would be to fill the kitchen with various utensils that can be much needed when cooking at home.
Housekeeping was alright.
Reservation went smoothly through "Think villa", Thank you Valia.

Just 8 Kms southeast of the town of Rethymno lies the historic village of Maroulas. A scenic drive through the olive groves will lead you to the village, which is built on top of a hill at an altitude of 240 meters and has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value. For this reason, the construction of new buildings should be carried out with the cooperation of the archaeological department.
The Venetian influence is very obvious in the village, as most of the buildings date back to at least the Venetian era, when two towers, which are still present today, and other buildings with loopholes, were built. The visitor can also admire numerous cisterns, serpentine narrow streets, chimneys and large arched stone doors of Venetian mansions all around the village, as well as an old oil press. In summer you might as well appreciate the rare and unique aroma of herbs and flowers, the sound of the natural spring water and the shadow of the giant plane trees!
Also, worth visiting is the church of Prophet Elias at the top of the hill, which offers panoramic view of the village and the Cretan Sea and gorge. In the village there is a feast in honour of Prophet Elias on the 20th of July.
As you walk around in Maroulas, you travel back in time in times very different from our own and the scenery brings you images of princesses, forbidden loves, white horses and dragons…apart from the dragons, the rest might be true!
