Surround yourself with elegance of the Villa Oliva, a harmonious balance between the beauty of Crete’s natural vibrancy and the luxury of a truly personalised refuge from today’s fast-paced living. Thoughtful design and creative décor preserve the richness of Rethymno’s architectural tradition but update it with lifestyle tweaks like spacious layouts, luxurious amenities, and indulgent bonuses like choice of bed type.

Set amid a landscaped garden estate on the outskirts of Rethymno Town, this cozy retreat exudes graces, from its arched doorways and wrought-iron balcony railings to the shaded stone-paved courtyard and shaded veranda. Villa Oliva offers the best of two worlds: a tranquil haven for quiet personal or family moments and easy access to the nearby Creta Palace Grecotel Luxury Resort, where you can enjoy all services and amenities from water sports and spa to fine dining.
