Villa overview - owner's description

a rural hideaway, stone-built in traditional style

Set in an area of magnificent natural beauty, surrounded by gardens of pretty flowering shrubs and fruit trees, it is more than a country cottage or a holiday villa. Built on the highest spot of the village, it offers breathtaking views on the Cretan Sea, Mt. Psiloritis and the whole area.

Private but not remote, the Villa is next to the village square, where you can find traditional Greek taverns, cafes and a mini-market. It is conveniently situated 7 km from Arkadi, the historical monastery (to the west) and about 5 km from Margarites, a village well-known for its traditional pottery (to the east). The sandy beaches of Rethymno are only 12 km away and both airports of the island (Chania and Heraklion) are 80 and 85 km away respectively.
The new-built villa is a two-storey building of 184 sqm. It has a big garden with barbecue facilities and a traditional oven, parking area and a swimming pool of 40 sqm. It can accommodate up to 8 persons in 4 bedrooms (two single-bedded and two double-bedded). Also, two more persons can be accommodated in the comfortable sofas and there is a baby cradle available. All bedrooms have a balcony or a large veranda. In particular, there is a 35sqm balcony on the ground floor with a large wooden table and chairs. Each bedroom on the ground floor has its own 6sqm balcony. Upstairs, there are spacious balconies for each bedroom. One is 34sqm and has a view of the garden, whereas the other is 14sqm and overlooks the surrounding green area.

There are two WC/bathrooms (with bath) and a Jacuzzi. All rooms are air-conditioned and have TV. The sitting-room provides a complete entertainment area, as the TV corner has a DVD player, satellite TV, Internet access and a fireplace, which makes the house an appealing winter destination as well. The modern fully-equipped kitchen has all the essentials (such as electric oven, microwave, fridge and freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine and toaster).

All the interiors are cozy and tastefully decorated with wooden and iron furniture, elegant drapery and curios. Comfortable sofas and big dining tables (both inside and outside) guarantee relaxed summer evenings. The good-size pool stands alongside the villa with reclining chairs and umbrellas and makes an idyllic place to sit and be soothed by the warm sun.

Given the location of the village and the landscape, there are numerous attractive hiking and cycling routes. The European path E4 crosses the village and passes through behind the building. The villa provides 4 mountain bicycles and light hiking equipment (batons) for free. Visitors can also easily explore the archaeological site of ancient Eleftherna (which is a stone-throw away), the cave of Melidoni or Zoniana.
The convenient location allows easy access to the sights of the island and offers the opportunity to various activities relaxing walks in the countryside, hiking, mountain biking or climbing trips can be easily organized. You ‘ll have mountain bikes and light hiking equipment (batons) at your disposal for free.

The owner is an experienced member of the Climbing Club of Rethymno and he will be glad to help with any relevant information on beautiful scenic routes and paths you can walk, ride on the bikes or drive. If you are lucky enough, your stay may coincide with one of the guided trips the Climbing Club organizes around the island (you can participate after arrangement/ reservation).

For the adventure-seekers, you will be given the necessary information on the extreme activities available on the island, such as:
Canyoning, Caving, Rock climbing, Horse riding, Rappel, River trek
