A traditional Venetian Mansion with 5 bedrooms, private pool & BBQ

Casa Sanguinazzo is a traditional Venetian mansion, originally used as the holiday cottage of Venetian aristocrat Z. Sanguinazzo, hence it’s name. It’s main entrance is made of marble and it’s complemented by a triangular front which bears the the family coat of arms, the eagle and the inscription : Initium sapientiae timor Domini (meaning “beginning of wisdom fear of the Lord”). This doorway has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value and it’s considered as one of the most important historic spots in the village. The Villa has also been used as the main treasury of the Cretan churches for 300 years.

Nowadays, the Villa has been carefully restored but still maintains its traditional character and the Venetian stone arches are still visible on the building, both outdoors and indoors. Great care and attention was given in every detail of decoration and many old artefacts are present. In addition, the furniture is of high quality, as are the branded appliances and Coco Mat mattresses used in every bedroom. The Villa can accommodate up to 10 people in beds and up to 11 people if it is necessary.
