The Concept: Secluded paradise

Rania is an 11-bedroom family villa on the west coast of Crete, above the seaside fishing village of Agia Pelagia. This Greek holiday home is located in a vast estate of olive trees, almonds, and prickly pears. Nature is all around and from the pool terrace and garden, you are immersed in the Cretan landscape. From the south side of the villa, you can admire the impressive mountains of Rodia and fall in love some more with the beauty of Crete.


The outdoor area features an expansive green grass lawn with your private pool at the center boasting amazing views over the beach and bay below. The gardens are planted with local shrubs and flowers, and olive trees are everywhere. On the pool level, there is a wide shaded veranda with a dining space for up to 24 guests, and a wood-fire BBQ for your private chef to cook traditional Cretan meals. To complete your family Crete vacation at Rania villa, the property is gated and secured with a CCTV system and has a safe private parking area.

Interior Design

Rania is designed with minimal décor, bright walls and fabrics, large window doors, and comfortable furniture. On the ground level, there is a spacious open-plan living area with a fully equipped kitchen and 2 dining areas. The ultra-modern kitchen has a fun breakfast bar for your morning Greek coffee moments. The upper levels feature 8 comfy double bedrooms and there is also a separate guest house with 2 more double bedrooms and a small fully equipped kitchen. This is the perfect villa for a group of family and friends to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Crete.

Good to know

Rania is located 23 km from the center of the capital town Heraklion with its vibrant local life, and for culture-lovers, the must-see Knossos archaeological site is only 30 km from the villa. It is the largest Bronze Age site in Greece and is claimed to be Europe’s oldest city. Email our concierge to arrange your private tour of ancient Knossos.
