When you think of Crete, you're probably imagining whitewashed villages perched atop high cliffs by the sea, aren't you? Rural homes that depict the humble Greek countryside life, a novel serenity that makes the island so special. Though there are parts of Crete that are exactly that, not all of the island is this humble and rural. On the contrary, in some of the bigger cities here, there are luxury homes
that offer a new side to Crete, one that helps you live out your deepest fantasies. Here are a few of them that are worth checking out.
Beachfront Estate in Chania
Just the word 'Beachfront' should already let you know just how desirable this estate in Chania is. Firstly, the location itself—no less than in one of the central towns of Crete
—already makes it worthwhile real estate. But the fact that it's right by the beach and it's an entire seven-bedroom estate? Even celebrities would be dying to rent this for summer! Apart from the scenic views it offers, the luxurious infinity pool, and all the other high-quality amenities, the fact that it's such a spacious home makes it all the more covetable. You won't find any place like it anywhere on the island!
Villa Abyss in Chania
Of course, in a place like Crete, a villa is enough to make for a fine home. One of the best ones is definitely Villa Abyss in Chania. This modern home is a haven for luxury travelers who want to spend time in Crete in style. Picture. a wide swimming pool with a gorgeous patio on the side overlooking the island's beautiful mountains. Every day will seem like a dream here! Add to that the convenience of a strong wifi connection, a laundry room, cable TV, and more and you've got yourself a winner! You'll sooner want to make this your new residence!
Villa Anassa in Chania
Want another villa in Chania that's perched atop a hill that offers a stunning view? Check out Villa Anassa! This two-bedroom rental may seem cramped, but that's because it's more suited for more intimate bedfellows! Yup! This is the type of comfortable villa that you're better off getting for your honeymoon in Crete. Though the island has a ton of other romantic spots, there's no beating a comfortable modern home with your own private pool and an amazing view of the nearby natural wonders. Just imagine sipping cocktails by the pool as you both watch the sunset! Now that's a first-class romance right there!
Villa Oneiro in Chania
Following in suit of Villa Anassa is Villa Oneiro, another luxurious home in Chania. Just like the former, Villa Oneiro is also an intimate two-bedroom home that has all the modern-day conveniences you can think of. Cable TV, wifi, its own laundry room—you name it! But while Villa Anassa has a more honeymoon-type vibe to it, Villa Oneiro feels more suited for a small family instead. One that would enjoy swimming in an infinity pool that overlooks the mountainous regions of Crete. There's simply a brightness to Villa Oneiro that other homes don't have. So a good tip to follow
is to go here during early spring to really enjoy the sunshine!
Villa Erofili in Asteri
Want to go to another town in Crete? Go to Asteri! Here, Villa Erofili will satisfy all your luxurious needs too! Granted, taking public transport
to get from Chania to Asteri would be one hell of a ride, you'll feel rewarded once you settle down in this first-class home! Firstly, despite its luxurious finish, it has a more traditional Mediterranean vibe compared to the others on this list. Secondly, although the place itself looks cramped, this four-bedroom villa is spacious enough to even welcome two small families. Imagine having a good time swimming at the pool or enjoying traditional Creten food
at the alfresco dining area with a great view! That'd be amazing!
Villa Semeli in Asteri
Although Villa Semeli, which is also in Asteri, may look similar to Villa Erofili, their vibes are much too different! This compact three-bedroom home has a more adult feel to it, one that's perfect for a clique trip to Crete! It's easy to imagine laying down under the Mediterranean sun, chatting by the edge of the pool that overlooks the surrounding olive groves, and enjoying Happy hour on the balcony as the sun sets. Don't they all sound like a chill vacation that you can only enjoy with your peers? Having little kids around might just ruin the vibe!
Villa Almond Tree 1 in Vrouchas
Bored of Asteri now? Go to Vrouchas instead. It's here where you'll find Villa Almond Tree 1, a spacious two-bedroom rental that screams homely! In contrast to Villa Semeli, now this is a home that's suited for a big family (even despite the limited number of bedrooms). The place has a charming, rustic, yet warm feeling to it, all without sacrificing its luxurious edge. There's a fireplace in the living room to keep you warm, a wooden dining area that can fit around six people all at once, and beautiful olive trees all around. If that's not pleasantly charming, then what is?
Crete isn't your typical Greek Island that only shows the countryside life in Greece. This island also has its own luxurious side that's especially reflected in these amazing rental homes! You'll definitely have a more wonderful stay on the island if you book these!
