Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Megalo Metochi - Villa Metochi

An oasis serenely tucked away from the tourist hordes!

Villa Metochi is the ultimate holiday home for modern-day vacationers searching for full privacy and total home-like comfort, along with easy and rapid access to downtown amenities and to the nearest sandy beaches. This gorgeous villa stands in an enviable cliff-side setting overlooking the Aegean Sea and the endless Cretan olive groves, and it’s reachable within a 6-minute drive from the town of Rethymnon. Villa Metochi consists of a roomy main house (90 sqm) with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a fully equipped studio (40sqm) with 2 beds, 1 bathroom, and can comfortably accommodate 6 -7 persons. The excellent location, the homey atmosphere, the feeling of independence and the intense close-to-nature sensation will ensure a fantastic vacation experience. This lovely property is ideal for extended families with kids or groups of friends.

Outdoor

After entering the villa’s gate you will surprisingly find yourselves into an amazing 2.500 sqm exterior space with palm trees, pines, fruit trees, lawn and all kind of ornamental and aromatic plants. This beautiful ambience is completed by a stunning private swimming pool (9m long & 1.40m deep) which offers magnificent views to the clear blue sea and the Cretan countryside. By the pool, there is a lovely gazebo and a lawn area where you can lounge and sunbathe while enjoying a cold, refreshing beverage. The veranda of the house with its dining table for 6 is the perfect spot for having plentiful meals with family and friends or feeling the rejuvenating night dew whilst enjoying a summer cocktail. The villa also features another outdoor sitting area with BBQ facilities and a big table for 6. Depending on the season, our guests may have the change to taste fresh fruits from our trees (apricots, pears, oranges, loquats, mandarins, lemons, etc).

Indoor

The main house of Villa Metochi covers a ground floor space with an open-plan living room, a fully equipped kitchen, two spacious bedrooms (1 double & 1 twin) and a bathroom with shower cabin. This layout is perfect for two couples or families of four. The comfy living room with its discreet decoration and the wooden ceiling boasts 2 triple sofas and a monastery-style dining table for 8, is air-conditioned and opens up to a large veranda with amazing views of the pool and the well-kept gardens. The house is equipped with free WiFi, flat screen TV, DVD player, washing machine,a/c in all bedrooms and living room, hairdryer, safe box, iron/iron board, first aid kit and all necessary items and appliances for a comfortable stay.

Studio

The studio with its roominess and its rustic-like furnishing can ideally host 2-3 extra guests. This annex house is fully equipped and features two comfortable beds, a large kitchen, a spacious bathroom with shower cabin, an A/C unit and a flat screen TV. The studio can be additionally booked in case the total number of guests is higher than 4 and a supplementary charge will be required. Otherwise, it will remain closed.

In addition, within the premises of the villa there is an adorable and very friendly small dog called Ermis. Our dog disposes of his own place with fresh water and food. Usually, he is free hanging around, but if you are not familiar with dogs, there is no reason to worry about! He can perfectly remain at his place.

To make things even better, in Villa Metochi we are delighted to offer our guests homemade local specialties upon request. Baking dishes of moussaka, pastitsio, gemista, traditional pies, etc. are brought to you on-demand and give you the opportunity to taste the real Greek cuisine.

Last but not least, the hospitality and the helpfulness of the owners and the staff will make you feel like home and will contribute to an unforgettable stay.

About Marina Kazila

I work as a professional translator, but at the same time I dedicate a big part of my time and energy in promoting Givera Villas, our family business. I love being in contact with people from all over the world and satisfying their desire for exciting and relaxing vacations. My intention is to build a familiar and friendly relationship with guests, contributing to make their stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

Why Marina Kazila chose Rethymnon area

Givera Villas (Villa Givera and Villa Metochi) is a family business launched by Mr. George Kazilas who wanted to put his own spin on the promotion of Cretan hospitality and top-notch accommodation and service. In 2006 he raised two lovely, private villas with personal commitment and care in order to preserve the Cretan heritage and offer visitors the opportunity to explore the beauties of this land, enjoy the landscape and experience the Cretan way of life. The longtime know-how of Kazilas Family is a guarantee of high quality vacations and a travelling experience you rarely get as a mass tourist. Villa Givera and Villa Metochi stand in two different locations, but they are both just a few-minute drive from the town of Rethymnon.

What makes this house unique

• Service-minded family business

• Kid-friendly villa

• Property very close to the town and beach of Rethimno (2.5km)

Holiday in October

  • 5 of 5

I can highly recommend Villa Metochi. It is a beautiful place. The villa is well equipped and provide a good service.

I have just celebrated my 70 years birthday with my children and grandchildren in the villa and we had a wonderful time there and of course in Creete.

Try it !!

  • 5 of 5

"We spent a week at Villa Metochi and it was really worthy.The house was renovated, comfortable and very clean and the surroundings really beautiful with great view. We even had the chance to eat tasteful medlars from the garden! The old town of Rethymno is fantastic and the house is close to everything by car.We absolutely appreciated the fact that the area was very peaceful, but at the same time we were close to shops and tourist attractions (about 2km from the nearest super market). We didn''t bath at the sea, but the beach was looking really nice.The weather in April was fine, although very windy (a hot southern wind).Finally, the owner received us warmly and was very helpful.It was good value for money and we would definitely recommend this property."

  • 5 of 5

"Although our journey was a last minute decision and the rental of the villa too, it was finally an excellent option for what we were looking for: relaxation! We were searching a place in a calm area, but at the same time close to tavernas and shops and we found it. As for the house, it was really cozy and comfortable. We were told that it was newly renovated and that was reflected in many parts of the house (bathroom, kitchen, bedrooms). The outdoor was also beautiful. Lush gardens, different kinds of trees and plants, spacious areas. The swimming pool was also a delight. Although the house is near Rethimno, a car is needed."

Magnifique Villa !!!!

  • 5 of 5

C'est la douzième maison de location que je découvre, et c'est la plus propre de toutes celles que j'ai déjà connues un peu partout (Biarritz, Saint Malo, Ibiza, Boston, La Martinique, Barcelone, Nouméa)

Le cadre est magnifique et très bien entretenu.

A 7 minutes en voiture de la plage et du centre, elle n'a que des avantages.

J'y retourne dès que possible!!!

Perfectly positioned gem

  • 5 of 5

In July we visited Crete for a wedding and we decided to book this fabulous villa so that we can enjoy some privacy and relaxation. Villa Metochi is in excellent condition and perfectly situated for visiting the nearest beaches and places of interest. The house was spotlessly clean inside and out, sheets and towels were changed mid week and we were welcomed with a fruit basket, raki, olives and a local cheese. The living room is tastefully furnished and decorated and the kitchen well equipped. The bedrooms are roomy with comfy beds. The annex studio with its kitchen and bathroom is lovely and perfectly convenient for extra privacy and independence. Spending our time outside in the pool area, garden and bbq area was a huge pleasure. And of course, the highlight of out holiday was the dog of the villa which is the cutest dog in the world! So friendly and adorable! Finally, I have to mention the attention to detail of the owner who made us feel like home and was intent on ensuring everything was right. All in all, it was an unforgettable stay!
