About The Experience
This well-located village house is yours to rent on the island of Crete. Located in the historic village of Maroulas, the village’s amenities are a mere 100 meters from your doorstep. Formerly an olive oil mill, the house has been carefully renovated to showcase the impressive stone arches found throughout the bright, comfortably equipped house. Outside, the only word that will escape your lips will be, “wow!” as you marvel at the sea views from your private terrace and infinity swimming pool. This is an ideal location from which to visit the island of Crete. The town of Rethymno is just 10 km away.
Location Description

This village house is located 100 meters from the village center of Maroulas on the island of Crete.

The closest beaches are just 3 km away. Maroulas is located in the first hill overlooking the bay of Rethymnon, between Chania and Heraklion, making it an ideal starting point for discovering Crete.
