Guestbook comments from the manager

Copied from Tripadvisor:



A truly magical place to stay - comfortable, well equipped and with beautiful garden, terraces, pool & views! The family could not have been more welcoming even when we arrived at 2am - they were there with raki to welcome us. The whole house was so thoughtfully made up with a load of food in fridges and cupboards and lovely fresh fruit etc from their home. A wonderful outside kitchen& dining area with bbq& bread oven too! The village taverna 100 yards away serves delicious local food and is just as friendly and welcoming. Thoroughly recommend as a place to stay with a young family or without.

The village of Amnatos is 17km from the centre of Rethymno and it is the last village on the way to the historical Monastery of Arkadi. The village is built on a rocky and high location having superb views across the valley of Rethymno.

The village was inhabited by the Venetians and the Turks and testify that the imposing buildings - towers of the village that survived until today. Houses Venetian notables (houses benezi), glass chimney style sebastiano serlio, mansions from the 17th and 18th century, imposing towers (the sanguinazzo) beautiful and lovely squares dominate and create a frame of a bygone era.

Due to the location of the village and the terrain in the area, there are many beautiful hiking and biking trails as to the nearby village of Kapsaliana where you can find the Museum of Olive. We will provide you for free 3 mountain bikes and light equipment for hiking (baton). Finally, the location enables visitors to explore the archaeological site of ancient Eleftherna and caves of Melidoni and Zoniana which are some of the most famous tourist destinations in central Crete.

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').

Notes:
Villa 'Dimitra' was built by John Chaliopoulou monk in 1800, who also renovated the existing main church of the village, Church of the Life Giving Fountain. In 1998 the house was bought by its current owners, who restored it as it is today. Situated in an area of exceptional natural beauty, surrounded by gardens with flowers and trees, not just a cottage or vacation cradle. Located on the highest point of the village inhabited by Venetians who left old Venetian buildings, offering stunning views of the Cretan Sea, Mount Psiloritis and surrounding lush mountains and gorges area.
