Overlooking the Aegean Sea, Villa Ali Vafi provides a serene retreat for recharging in Crete. Ali Vafi villa is located in the village of Maroulas situated on the heights above Rethymno offering panoramic views. Amongst its rich historical heritage, visitors can discover important remains of ancient tombstones dating back to antiquity, two wonderful Venetian towers one of which is 44 meters high, a Byzantine church dedicated to the Ascension, a more recent church dedicated to the Virgin Mary, and lastly a small chapel with iconostasis which adorns the small village square. The villa itself was the house of a Turkish Pasha Ali Vafi and because the village is retained by the archaeological authority of Crete no major changes could be made. We kept during the recent renovation (2022) all the characteristics from that period. The pool is actually the pool the Pasha Ali Vafi was swimming in.
The minimalist aesthetic of the villa allows the focus to remain on the expansive views. The 130 m2 villa is spread over 2 floors and accommodates 5 adults + 1 baby.
