Villa Despina Introduction
Villa Despina combines traditional Cretan charm and modern living in a great spot near a traditional village. With its stone-built walls, wooden shutters and rural setting, it offers a truly pretty retreat equipped with plenty of home-from-home comforts.
Inside, everything is arranged over two floors, with spacious rooms, stone walls and ceiling beams lending a homely and rustic ambience. The focal point is the open-plan living space, which consists of a welcoming sitting room with a corner fireplace and large kitchen-diner reached through a dividing archway. Here, you will find all the cooking essentials, as well as a solid wood dining table and comfy window seat. Also on the ground floor are an attractive double bedroom, twin bedroom and bathroom. The further double bedroom and its ensuite, are found upstairs. As an added touch, the villa also offers a WiFi connection.
Outside, the swimming pool is the main draw. Situated at the front of the Despina, it comes lined with comfortable sunchairs from where you can enjoy wonderful views out over the neighbouring olive groves and pine woods. And a few steps away is a terrace area complete with a patio table and chairs for dining outdoors.
When you want to explore, a short stroll brings you to the tavernas and minimarket at nearby Prines village. The shops, bars and harbourside restaurants of Rethymnon, meanwhile, are only a 10-minute drive away.
