About Villa Rosemary

Villa Rosemary is a delightful villa in north Crete’s inspirational coastal hills. High above the rolling olive and cypress groves of a sun-bathed rural valley, the view from your poolside terrace extends to the gentle lapping waves of the Mediterranean.

This hillside haven enables you to escape the hustle and bustle of your everyday life and to neatly sidestep the clamour of Crete’s more popular tourist resorts. The property stands in its own two-acre estate, just a short drive to secluded sandy beaches and quiet, coastal villages.

The nearest sandy beach is a short drive away and you are also close to sea-front tavernas, local shops and markets. We recommend visiting the charming town of Chania, which is known as the Venice of Crete. Among its delightful cobbled streets there are some great places for finding souvenirs and gifts to take home.

The contemporary three-storey villa effortlessly accommodates six guests in its three twin bedrooms. Its interiors are airy and spacious, with exposed local-stone and dazzling whitewashed walls which create a sun-drenched ambience throughout.

Should you be travelling in a larger group, the neighbouring three-bedroom Villa Melie, located on the same large rural estate, may be booked in tandem. Perfect for sharing the timeless rural pleasures of the Gavalohori valley.
