Cassidy Villa, Roumeli, Crete

Our Cretan home is a small detached villa at the edge of the traditional working village of Roumeli, enjoying a quiet location and breath-taking panoramic views, just 5 minutes drive from the gorgeous unspoilt fishing village of Panormo and 25 minutes from historic cultural Rethymno. The cities of Heraklion and Chania are each within 1 hour`s drive via the easily accessible National Road.

The villa accommodates 4 and is bright, airy, comfortable and easy to look after. Its elevated position gives benefit from the cooling breezes that prevail in Northern Crete. One of the 2 bedrooms is a separate guest apartment underneath the main living accommodation, with its own private entrance and en-suite bathroom. Immediately outside the main living area is a lovely south-facing covered dining terrace. There are other shaded areas giving privacy for dining, hobbies or relaxation, and a private 32 sq m swimming pool.

Roumeli is a perfect base from which to explore the beautiful island of Crete and its rich cultural history. The use of our car would be included in the exchange if a car is available at the other end. Life in the village has its own special charms; you can walk for miles through the olive groves, make friends with the locals and enjoy the famous Cretan hospitality at the village kafenion, or visit the raki still.

Our interest is in longer exchanges. We have plans in place for 2024, but would be delighted to hear from exchangers interested in an exchange of 6+ weeks between July and September 2025.
