Villa Tsesmes is just outside of the city of Rethymno. Villa Tsesmes has 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and can accommodate up to 10 guests. The villa has a private pool with views out to the sea. Guests can walk to the beach from the villa. For a wonderful stay on Crete, Villa Tsesmes is perfect for families or friends traveling together. There are many interesting coastal towns nearby and of course guests will enjoy the beach.
The main house entrance takes you into the main common areas of the house: the living-room (its balcony facing the alley), the dining-room, the WC, the Pink double-bedroom and the kitchen which can also be reached by the secondary house entrance. An indoor wooden spiral staircase leads you both to the top and the ground floor.
As you go up on the top floor, you reach the sitting-room area, perhaps the sunniest part of the house, with doors leading both to the small balcony (facing the town and the swimming pool and BBQ areas at the rear of the house), and to the large terrace with outdoor furniture and a majestic 180 view towards the town, the hills and the alley. On the same floor theres a little laundry-room, the main Green double-bedroom with its private balcony (with view towards the town and the rest of the Spanakis property with the little house, grocery garden and windmill), the Blue single-bedroom and the grand bathroom.
Descending the same staircase will take you to the ground floor. This can be isolated and treated as an entirely separate house, with its own kitchen, living-room, and two double bedrooms, (One single bed can be added to an area near the kitchen), bathroom, and front yard with a little garden and parking space for 1 car. It can also be accessed from the secondary gate, providing absolute privacy!
At the rear of Villa Tsesmes, away from the eyes of a passerby, there is the swimming pool area, with sun beds, umbrellas and shower, but also the BBQ space, fully equipped with its own dining table and chairs.
You can access the property via the main gate facing the alley. As you enter, there is the big front yard, paved with concrete bricks and decorated with flowers and grass islets, as well as parking space for up to 2 cars.
In the town of Tsesmes, which is 500 meters from the villa, you will find a Lidl super market-bakery-pharmacy. For a larger city, Rethymno is 6 km from the villa.
Rethymno combines rarely united features: the old town\'s charm and history, with proximity to a long sandy beach. Although it is the third largest town in Crete, Rethymno never feels like a city as Chania and Heraklion do. Instead, it has a provincial air; it\'s a place that moves slowly and the most importantly, preserves much of its Venetian and Turkish appearance.
There are two sides to Rethymno offering two styles of visit: the endless big beach hotel strip that stretches from the east end of Rethymno, lapping up the coastal \"villages\" of Perivolia, Platanias, Adelianos Kambos (where Villa Tsesmes is located), Pigianos Kambos, Sfakaki, Stavromenos and Skaleta - and - the Rethymno that allows you the character of the old town with its mix of architecture and history, cultural influences and styles ranging from Venetian to Ottoman empire!Get the full listing »
