Villa Mathios

CreteThe Rethymnon Area › Sfakaki, near Rethymnon

A comfortable single-storey villa in a prime location close to the beach in the small resort of Sfakaki, and just a short drive or bus ride from Rethymnon.

For those who desire both a decent-size private swimming pool and the possibility of swimming in the sea just a minute's walk away, this recently-built villa offers would be hard to beat. Standing in the small resort area of Sfakaki, approximately 10 km east of Rethymnon, Villa Mathios is just 100 metres from the beach and offers easy access on foot to a selection of eating places, as well as other essential facilities such as mini-markets, a bakery, a chemist and an ATM.

Tucked away in a well maintained garden with a lawn, colourful shrubs and a couple of palm trees, Villa Mathios is an attractive single-storey house with two bedrooms. The main entrance leads straight into the living room with a fireplace and comfortable sofa as well as a dining table and chairs. The open-plan kitchen has been fitted with modern units and comes fully equipped with ceramic hob, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher, and there is also a washing machine. Both bedrooms have twin beds which can be joined together as a large double, and they share an attractively tiled bathroom with bathtub between them. All the rooms have individually controlled air-conditioning units.

Patio doors lead from the lounge area onto a dining terrace shaded by a pergola, with patio furnishings, a barbecue and lovely views across the garden to the sea. From here, a few steps lead down to the villa's pride and joy - a 9 x 5-metre swimming pool surrounded by a paved terrace.

Those simply looking for a relaxing holiday dividing most of their time between the pool and the beach will not require a hire car. The nearest taverna is just 50 metres away, as is a coffee shop run by the villa's owners - so delicious cakes and pastries are all-too-temptingly close! Sfakaki's mini-markets can provide all the essentials, whilst for a more sophisticated shopping experience, the centre of Rethymnon can easily be reached using the local bus service, with the nearest stop barely 100 metres from the villa. On the other hand, the villa's location halfway between Chania and Heraklion is equally convenient for those who wish to take advantage of our special car hire rates in order to explore the island, with the nearby national road providing easy access in both directions. One of the closest historical attractions, the famous 5th-century Arkadi monastery, is just a short drive away, whilst closer still, the Byzantine monastery of Arsani can even be reached on foot.
