It’s really your home away from home and let’s discover together why this is so! Villa Givera is truly an exceptional property nestled in a peaceful hillside location only 5km far from Rethymnon, the town of beautiful sunsets. This lovely property offers privacy, peace of mind and complete relaxation thanks to its privileged location and the overwhelming and unobstructed views to the clear blue sky, the Cretan countryside with the olive groves and the inviting Aegean Sea. The villa boasts a spacious, well appointed interior (130sqm) with wooden ceiling and stone tile details, and can comfortably accommodate up to 6 persons in its 3 airy and sunny bedrooms. The big spaces, the classy decor, the large terrace with its lovely sunsets, the stunning swimming pool along with the beautiful gardens and the BBQ facilities will give your vacation a special touch of comfort and wellness. Additionally, Villa Givera is located only 2.5km far from the highway which connects the whole island. Thus, it's a crossroad between the two biggest towns of Crete, Heraklion and Chania and it's the perfect starting point for visiting every corner of the island. Outdoor The villa features a 1000 sqm outdoor space with a large tile paved veranda and an even larger pool deck with a private, eco friendly swimming pool (9m long & 1.40m deep). The spectacular views and the breathtaking sunsets will enchant you each day and evening, assuring you a memorable stay. The family size wooden table of the veranda invites you to enjoy your Cretan meals, while the lounge furniture is ideal for a night drink by the pool. At the stone-built BBQ facilities with the extra sink and fridge you can experience homemade al fresco lunches. Additionally, there is a lot of space covered with grass, ornamental trees, rose bushes, geraniums and aromatic plants, whilst the stone paved path leading to the entrance of the villa is the perfect place to safely park your car. Indoor The villa is a one-storey building with a stylishly furnished open-plan living room and a large fully equipped kitchen with a dining table for 4. The spacious sitting area features one triple and one double sofa, an armchair, a dining table for 6, a fireplace, and two double windows opening onto the veranda and the swimming pool. A long corridor connects the living room with the bedrooms and bathrooms. The villa disposes of three bedrooms (1 double and 2 twins) with great views to the garden and pool, and two bathrooms: one with bathtub and another with shower cabin. The house is equipped with a/c in all bedrooms and living room, washing machine, dishwasher, free satellite WiFi, flat screen TV, DVD player, hairdryer, safe box, iron/iron board, first aid kit and all necessary items and appliances for a comfortable stay. Notes: - Bath and pool towels, bed linen, bed covers, blankets and extra pillows are provided - Housekeeping every 3 - 4 days. Pool and garden attendance twice a week. - Baby travel cot & high chair provided upon request. - Any other service: airport transfer, car hire, private excursions, daily housekeeping, starter grocery shopping, etc. can be offered upon request. - Entertainment and storytelling services to small children from 1 year old including Improvisation, theatrics, music, games, etc. Stories are narrated in Greek and English by a professional story teller and it’s a great opportunity for an early contact with foreign languages and cultures through amusing and educational activities. Givera Villas (Villa Givera and Villa Metochi) is a family business launched by Mr. George Kazilas who wanted to put his own spin on the promotion of Cretan hospitality and top-notch accommodation and service. In 2006 he raised two lovely, private villas with personal commitment and care in order to preserve the Cretan heritage and offer visitors the opportunity to explore the beauties of this land, enjoy the landscape and experience the Cretan way of life. The longtime know-how of Kazilas Family is a guarantee of high quality vacations and a travelling experience you rarely get as a mass tourist. Villa Givera and Villa Metochi stand in two different locations, but they are both just a few-minute drive from the town of Rethymnon. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1041K91002959201More
