Villa in Panormos
Thalassa Residence
Think about the warmth of the sun and the cool of the sea breeze—and nothing else—at Thalassa Residence. This newly built Crete vacation rental is designed for relaxation, whether that means napping in the sun, making memories with friends and family, or a little bit of both. Its six bedrooms can accommodate groups of up to twelve, while a location near the town of Panormos is convenient to shopping and dining. You’ll want to spend most of your holiday on the villa’s stunning terrace, which features a swimming pool, hot tub, tempting row of loungers, sitting area, barbecue and pergola-covered dining area, all with views of the sea. Inside, however, you’ll also find luxury amenities from a games room and sauna to a private exercise room and elevator. Sliding glass doors that run nearly from wall to wall make the villa’s L-shaped great room feel like an extension of the terrace. Understated furniture and stone floors look chic (and feel cool underfoot) in the living and dining areas, while a sleek corner fireplace will add warmth if you want it. The kitchen, on the other side of the L, is fully equipped and has an inviting breakfast bar. Each of the six bedrooms at Thalassa Residence has a king bed, en-suite bathroom and TV, and several of the suites open to a balcony or terrace as well. Like the main living areas, the bedrooms are bright and stylish, with refined details like tufted headboards or graceful side chairs, plus spa-worthy bathrooms splashed with stone tile. The villa’s location in the Rethymno area is a 10-minute walk from Panormos Beach—a quieter stretch of sand perfect for a honeymoon-style stroll or splashing with the kids—and an 11-minute walk from the town of Panormos, where you can take care of shopping, explore the cobbled streets or sample the local tavernas.

Villa in Rethymno
Villa Heora
Sitting serenely in a private estate of 5 acres Villa Heōra manages to blend its contemporary form into the rural setting, while its facade leads to a sophisticated interior and is contained within an exquisite outdoor space. The property commands stunning panoramic vistas from its enviable hillside position having the Fortezza fortress, Rethymno town, White Mountains and Vrysinas mountain in front of your eyes. The estate is floating 200 meters above sea level, so wherever your eyes wander, you are flooded with the blue of the horizon, sky and sea. Here you’ll be far from the madding crowd, but at the same time just a 4 Km drive from the popular Old Town of Rethymno and its golden sandy beach. Being equally close to the main road, guests will cherish the opportunity of exploring and moving around the island. Once being a family home, our goal at Villa Heōra is to treat our visitors as our guests, to create a relaxing and highly enjoyable holiday experience and hopefully allow them to create their own unforgettable memories. All in all, Villa Heōra offers the perfect place to enjoy an intimate and private holiday in the Cretan countryside and once one has arrived it really is difficult to leave this magical destination.

Villa in Adele
Orizontes Deluxe Residence
Positioned for 360-degree views, you can find the Aegean Sea, Cretan Mountains, and sprawling valleys of Rethymno at this modern villa. Sip your morning tea at the smaller, ocean-facing bistro set while the kids play on the jungle gym. Swim a few laps in the pool to warm up before heading to the Blue Flag awarded, Adelianos Kampos Beach. It’s just a few minutes from home. Orizontes borrows inspiration from the traditional architectural style of the Cyclades, adding a delightfully modern touch. Rounded edges get straightened out. Small circular windows turn into landscape capturing floor-to-ceiling openings. In the living room, a floating staircase opens the space even more. Let the fully-equipped kitchen inspire your creative side and try your hand at a traditional Greek dish. After dinner at the alfresco set, pour yourself another glass of wine and sink into the soothing hot tub. Rethymno is one of the most well-preserved Renaissance cities in Greece, as well as a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Wander the ancient streets to find incredible architecture, traditional Greek restaurants, and boutique shops. Just outside the city, you’ll find hiking trails, gorges, caves, and even more pristine beachfront. Follow the coast east, and you’ll find the beautiful city of Heraklion, which is known for its famous Archeological Museum. Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.
