Rethymnon - Roussospiti / West Crete

Your holiday villas provide
The Thimonies Villas have been built in 2008.

The building style follows the traditional Cretan design. The houses spread along the slope of the hill in several levels and partly lean against the natural rock.

The single properties of the 3 holiday villas are lined by walls from natural stone (no visible cement), just as if three Cretan families would have laid out their single-family homes with private inner yards and gardens on this slope.

The way of terracing each single property in two levels is also in accordance with this building style.

distance Gardens, deck chairs and a BBQ
The 3 swimming pools on the 3 lower levels make the only difference, but they have been perfectly integrated in the gardens so they do not derange the traditional look at all.

The style continues in the buildings themselves, both outside and inside. Everything looks somehow "old", just as mould into the countryside using plenty of mortar, and in total not quite upright.

Even the exterior rendering is uneven.
The wooden door and window frames seem to be bleached out and a little bit crooked, and you would actually expect that they do not shut properly.
Holidays Indoor decoration Holidays
But that is a delusion. The windows have double glazing, in the rebates there are most modern seals, and they all shut perfectly. Also, they are not crooked at all. They just look that way.

Flowerpots from terracotta are standing around outside, some of them painted in bright colours as you can find them in many old villages.

Rusting agricultur utensils lounge around in between.
distance Outdoor decoration
In front of the living rooms there are terraces with pergolas, and of course they are roofed with local reed and overgrown with grapevines.
Holidays Villa Rodia - Al fresco dining table on the veranda Holidays
distance Villa Daphne - Gardens and BBQ
Each of the 3 holiday villas has a brick-built charcoal grill in it's garden, and by each swimming pool there is an outdoor shower.

The swimming pools are being operated from mid April until the end of October, depending on the weather conditions.

Inside the houses there are many old things as well, e.g. tables with glass surface and showcases in the living rooms. This continues in wardrobe bars and towel pegs which might have been in use for 100 years or more.
The composition of the bathrooms matches the the houses' style. The taps are of classic design, and the shower cabins are from brickwork as they were in the old times. The ceiling corners of the shower bathrooms are round, just as if they would connect to the rock.
Holidays Villa Rodia - Shower bathroom Holidays
Both the swimming pools outside and the housing technology inside are most modern. The electric hobs in the kitchens have extractor fans, all living rooms and bedrooms are air conditioned, and the living areas of each of the 3 holiday villas have home cinemas.

All modern elements integrate smoothly in the houses' style and do not interrupt it at all.

In front of the entry of the villas facility there is a parking spot.
