On the beautiful Greek Island of Crete, there's a charming town called Hersonissos. It's every bit the kind of paradisical provincial commune you'd expect in Greece. It's by the coast, a bustling local lifestyle, and the sun shines practically all year. You'd sooner want to move here and spend the rest of your life relaxing, right? Well, if you plan to, make sure to go for luxury homes
that are worth your while. A beautiful rustic haven might do! Not only do they provide the freshness of the outdoors, but they have a fascinating Mediterranean charm to them too.
True to its name, you'll enjoy ample sunlight in Sunshine Villa. This two-bedroom property in Greece is located in one of the quieter areas in Hersonissos, allowing you to enjoy your stay here as peacefully as you want. It boasts a luxurious pool, a well-equipped outdoor patio, a quaint living room with a fireplace, and two spacious rooms. One is the master's bedroom with a queen-sized bed and the other is the kids' room with a bunk bed. They show that Sunshine Villa is more of a family-friendly home. However, this shouldn't stop groups of friends from enjoying a stay here as well.
With its panoramic seaside view, its private pool, and large backyard, Azzuro Villa is pretty rustic. It may not be rustic in terms of interior design, but it does let you enjoy the great outdoors as much as you want. Who wouldn't want to spend their time in Hersonissos lounging under the sun, enjoying the Mediterranean air, and cooling off by swimming in the pool? Even though there's so much to do in Crete
, the Greek Island where Hersonissos is located, Azzuro Villa is the kind of vacation rental that will make you want to stay in and relax at home instead.
Just like the first two villas that started off this list, Villa Kery is the kind of rustic Greek home that will have you spending more time outdoors. In fact, you'll likely hardly spend any time inside this gorgeous luxury home in Hersonissos since there's a lot you get excited about here. Of course, there's the private pool, the big backyard, and the like. But there's also the Mediterranean Sea. Right outside of Villa Kery is the beach, one of the best in Crete
. And it's literally only a hop and a skip away from the estate!
Driades Deluxe Double Suite
With the vines over the bed and wooden furniture throughout the apartment, the Driades Deluxe Double Suite is as rustic as it can get. However, it's pretty modern too. You might even say that it has a good balance of the past and present. The falt-screen TV, the exposed wardrobe, and the inverter aircon make the space contemporary. But the sink by the bed, the wooden headboard, and the vines above add an old-world touch. Nevertheless, this room serves its purpose quite well. It's a great home to return to after spending a day exploring Crete.
Aphrodite Maissonette with Jacuzzi
From this point on, this list will solely focus on Casa Di Veneto, a collection of luxury suites in Hersonissos. And among its finest is the Aphrodite Maissonette home, which comes with its own jacuzzi! Perched on the rooftop of the apartment complex, you get to enjoy this space all to yourself. And since this one-bedroom suite features a queen-sized bed, won't this be the perfect honeymoon haven on the island? Think about it: an intimate rustic home in a peaceful town in Crete
with your very own rooftop and jacuzzi. What's more romantic than that?
Dimitra Double Room
Another honeymoon-worthy luxury home in Casa Di Veneto is the Dimitra Double Room. Located on the ground floor and near many great taverns and pubs in town, you can enjoy the local lifestyle on the island and still be at peace. And quite honestly, the look of the luxury rental alone is enough to charm your pants off. Looking like a stone cottage from Medieval times, you can't deny the place's historic appeal. It barely has any modern appliances, save for a TV set and a fridge. But then, that's part of its old-world charm!
Athina Double Room
The Athina Double Room also has that old-world Greek nostalgia going for it. The stoned walls and exposed wooden beams reveal its rustic charms, while the baroque wooden furniture and the canopy over the bed make for quite the fairytale-like features. As a pair of studio apartments, Athina Double Room serves as a suitable home for friends traveling to Crete
on their own. Each can enjoy their own space and since there's little technology to go by, they'll likely spend most of their time exploring Hersonissos. And that's not necessarily a bad way to enjoy their stay here!
The beautiful town in Hersonissos may not be that famous, but it's just as beautiful as the country's other destinations. In fact, you'll even find a few must-see rustic luxury homes that are perfect for a leisurely stay in this part of the world.
