A Beautiful clean villa, well maintained. The Villa located in a very nice village about 10 minutes from Rethymno. The View of the sea is amazing. Two good tavernas within walking distance and a small supermarket.
The owner of the Villa - Maria - is a very nice and caring.
We enjoyed very much our staying at the Villa. The good Climate and the charming People in the island. Hoping to return this summer Again.
Thank you Maria for a great holiday.
Nous sommes une famille de 5 personnes et nous avons passé un peu plus d'une semaine de vacances dans cette très belle villa.
Elle est bien équipée, au calme et avec une très belle vue sur la mer.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'accueil chaleureux de la propriétaire.
Cette location n'est pas très loin de Rethymno, ce qui permet de faire les courses très facilement.
Nous recommandons vraiment cette belle villa.
Villa Olivia was amazing. The views were spectacular, the village location was perfect and the villa itself was much better than expected. The website does not do this property justice. The quality of the Villa was much better than what we expected from the pictures and description. The finish and amenities of the property were top notch and the service was great. The pool was cleaned daily and the entire property was cleaned every couple of days. Maria was available to answer questions, provide directions and help arrange activities. The village of Roussospitti was quiet and small but still had a couple of Taverna's, a mini-mart and a little church. Did I mention the view? It was spectacular. The location is about a thousand feet above the Mediterranean and Rethymno but only about 10 minutes from the center of Rethymno and the shops, restaurants and bars of old town and the harbor. We want to go back and would recommend this location for families with young children like us, or with teenagers or for a group looking for a place to hang and have fun.
Due to its rich historical background Rethymno offers a variety of sightseeing. The Monastery of Arkadhi, the Late Minoan cemetery of Armeni and the ancient Dorian city of Eleftherna as well as picturesque villages like Anogia and Argiroupoli, are ideal for long walks. Lake Kournas with its strip of white sand provides an ideal area for swimming. Myloi village, Chromonasteri and Agia Eirini Monasteri, outside Roussospiti village, are also worth visiting. And of course Fortezza castle in Rethymno city! The view from up there is magnificent! Numerous beaches, including lively beach bars or traditional taverns are located on the north and south part of Rethymno. Georgioupoli, Sxoinaria and Lefkogeia, Souda beach, Akoumia and Agios Pavlos offer crystal waters and magnificent views as well as facilities for swimming, sunbathing and sea sports. Food is also a very important aspect of Cretan cullture. Authentic tavernas offer delicious local cuisine, world famous for its flavour and variety!
