Modern and magnificent… Villas with superb sea view.


Ionia Residence is situated at a moderately high altitude overlooking the sea, the surrounding olive groves and the nearby small villages. All the Villas have amazing sea views, located 12 km east of Rethymno and just 1 km from the beach.

The houses are spread over three different levels, making the most of the natural slope of the hill and have unlimited sea views.

Ionia Residence consists of 9 villas. There are four different types of villa, with two or three floors, ranging in size from 82m² to 136m², all with private garden. The villas also share a swimming pool of 150 m² with a 26 m2 pool for children. The common parking area is situated at the lower level, and some of the houses also have private parking.

All villas have large windows that allow natural light into the house, leading to spacious terraces with stunning sea views. Villas are surrounded by low walls, which separate the properties and the house levels.

The style is modern and minimalist. All the materials used are of the highest quality. The villas are well insulated (according to energy class B) for comfortable all year round living.

The unique atmosphere is created with the elegant minimalist style, choice of high-quality materials and carefully selected colours.
You can enjoy the warm summer evenings in your garden while taking in the blue sea or the green olive groves that surround Ionia Residence.
