About The Rosemary Estate

High above the rolling olive and cypress groves of a rural valley, The Rosemary Estate is a haven from the world. This estate is the perfect escape from an everyday hustle and bustle of as well as the clamour of Crete's popular tourist resorts. 

There are two properties here. Both houses have views over the poolside terrace to the lapping waves of the Mediterranean. Villa Melie reflects the authentic architecture and ambience of Crete's stone villages. There are three double bedrooms across three levels, sleeping a total of six. Villa Rosemary sleeps six guests in three twin bedrooms and has wonderful living areas throughout its three storeys. Both are sun-drenched and traditional with whitewashed walls and exposed local stone. 

The nearest sandy beach is a short drive away and you are also close to sea-front tavernas, local shops and markets. We recommend visiting the charming town of Chania, known as the Venice of Crete. Among its delightful cobbled streets are great places for finding souvenirs and gifts to take home. The Rosemary Estate is perfect for sharing the timeless rural pleasures of the Gavalohori valley.
