The sun-drenched and laid back island of Crete has long been a popular tourist destination for those seeking a relaxing and culturally-uplifting holiday.

With four tavernas and two mini-markets on your doorstep, you won’t have to travel far to enjoy authentic Cretan cuisine and to pick up some essential holiday groceries.
This spacious country home has been decorated to an exceptionally high standard. Style oozes on each of No1 Old Vineyard’s three floors. The pretty light pink pastel tone of the villa’s façade is mimicked on the inside of the house, which is brought to life by soft pastel colours, quirky abstract artwork and inviting furnishings.

The villa’s open-plan living/dining room and kitchen, with a door to the outside terrace enables guests to spread out and relax in comfort.
