Location: In the West End of Mixorrouma Village. AS you drive from the city of Rethymno to Mixorrouma there is a long right turn just before the entrance of the village. The kiosk is located in the mid distance of this long turn

Mixorrouma village (New and older one): Old Mixorrouma Village (lower Mixorrouma)

As a traditional village impresses the visitor with the way construction - no internal roads (streets) only ring road and the houses are concatenated one after another.

Located a short distance from Above Mixorouma in less than 300 meters.Surrounded by an astonishing beauty and grace flowing through the valley of the river with water and summer full of verdant plane trees and a variety of several other large and small plants in a way that literally blossoms in green in all its nuances and melodic voices of innumerable birds create a fantastic atmosphere paradise really deserves to enjoy all of the senses.

In New Mixxorouma ('Over Mixxorouma') visitors can find the oven for bakery, gas station, three cafes and a snack bar framed with museum types of old agricultural tools and household equipment. He can also see and buy wickerwork, the two remaining handmade basket craftmen.

Kourtaliotiko Gorge, Preveli Monastery&Palm Beach : 'Kourtaliotiko Gorge' is located in the prefecture of Rethymno, approximately 2km from Anna Villas and 22 km south of rethymno. It follows the river and ends at the Preveli lake and palm beach. Halfway meets a path that passes through the gorge and leads to the beautiful church of St. Nicholas. The Canyon is of incredible beauty and the scenery is rough. It is rich in wildlife and the river is divided in five streams which unite and form small lakes and a huge waterfall! The Gorge is a Kourtaliotiko miracle of nature! Really worth visiting it in order to indulge in the beauty and wildness of the Cretan landscape'.

'Preveli'

'Lake Preveli is the most beautiful and most impressive natural attraction island.The magical forest of palm trees leads to an exotic beach with golden sands. The landscape is really dreamy thus each visitor of the island must see it!'

Guestbook comments from the manager
We had the most amazing holiday! The contact (we asked lots of questions and they were all answered immediately) with Yiannis before we left the UK was excellent and the care we received from his family during our stay at the villa was flawless.

The villa itself was immaculate when we arrived and we got clean towels and sheets every three days. The interior of the villa is like a show room, very modern and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the modern appliances that you could need and the beds are very comfortable. The villa itself is situated within mountains and it is designed so that regardless of which room you are in, or which balcony you sit on (there are numerous) the views are simply stunning.

Our children loved playing in the pool which was cleaned daily. The pool was also graded (deep and shallow end) making it safe for our young children. The are four sun loungers and a sun umbrella and towels provided for pool and/or beach use.

Probably due to the villas elevated position, there is always a slight wind, making the temperature pleasant rather than unbearable and this wind also seemed to control mosquitos and I can honestly say that this is the first time on holiday that we have not been bitten by mosquitos and did not need to use any form of repellants.

Although the villa information does say that you can drive cars up to the villa door itself, we tried this and were unable to and if you wish to do this I think you would need a 4x4 as the drive is very steep.

The area is quiet, picturesque and traditional. There are lots of easily reachable beaches and more tourist locations but the villa is so beautiful and the pool such good fun that our young children were reluctant to leave it to do any sight seeing. The barbecue is also very good (good butchers in Spilli) and we had one most nights.

Overall we could not have had a better time. Our every need was catered for. Everyone was welcoming, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our only regret is that our stay was too short. We would love to return next year and simply cannot recommend this villa and the customer service we received enough.

EINS MIT DER NATUR!

  • 5 out of 5
Von so einer schönen Lage waren wir sofort begeistert. Wir wurden herzlich von Elaine und Anna empfangen, mit Wein, selbst gebackenem Kuchen und noch ein Osterbrot.
Wir sind in der Nähe viel spazieren gegangen oder sind zum Strand nach Plakias gefahren. Sehr gut essen konnte man auch in Spili. Alle waren super nett!
Vielleicht kommen wir nochmal wieder,
danke Margit und Wolfgang (52 u. 47Jahre)

BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED VILLA IN STUNNING LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
It's hard to capture how fantastic this villa is without seeing it for yourself. While photographs of this property online are beautiful the 'real life' views you get from this property are stunning. There are spectacular views anywhere you look out from this property and the five or six terraces mean you can pick and choose which view takes your fancy as well as if you want to be in the shade or sun. Because the villa is high up in the hills there is always a gentle breeze which means August Crete temperatures are very comfortable.

The inside of the villa is very clean and comfortable with a contemporary design. There is a spacious open plan living/kitchen area, two bath/shower rooms and two bedrooms but with all the outside 'rooms/areas' the property seems even more spacious.

Yiannis and family were incredibly attentive to our needs and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Any issues/questions were sorted/answered straight away as soon as they were raised. Anna even made us two cakes (one as a welcome) during our stay and both were equally delicious and very much appreciated. Eleni came in (always smiling) every day, apart from Sunday, to clean - and our sheets and towels were changed every three days. She also brought us homemade jam and tomatoes from her garden - so kind.

Because the villa was so nice we spent a lot of time at the pool (again, very well kept and the sunbeds very comfortable with spectacular views of the hills and valley) and eating in. Most of the rest of our time was spent at the local beach - Schinaria. There are lots of beautiful beaches on the south coast, but this was our favourite as the scenery from the beach was pure mountains and countryside with no modern building spoiling the view. The water was also crystal clear and great for snorkelling - we saw needle fish, a giant turtle, sea urchins and dolphins as well as all the other many pretty smaller fish.

There are plenty of good taverners to eat at in the area and Preveli monastry is also worth a visit. The Kourtaliotiko gorge is spectacular too. The venetian fortress in Rethimno is also impressive. However, the south of Crete is really more for your beaches, countryside and small rural towns than your grand architectural towns/cities.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to anybody as I can't fault it. It's simply a fantastic villa in a stunning location - the best we've probably stayed in. All of us want to go back soon.

WONDERFUL HOME FOR A PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful stay in this house at the end of May-beginning of June 2013. The house is beautifully designed, the inside decoration is very modern, all the furniture and amenities are in excellent condition (basically everything is new, as the house was built only 18 months ago). The views from the house (on the Cretan country side) are very spectacular. We also enjoyed very much the time we spent at the private swimming pool. The owners are really very nice people who will do everything to make your stay enjoyable and an unforgettable one.
We definitely had a high-quality experience in this beautiful house so we can only recommend it to anybody who would like to spend special moments during their holiday with this extra "luxury" touch which we enjoyed so much.

A BEAUTIFUL VILLA AMIDST BEAUTIFUL SCENERY

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in villa 2 for almost two weeks and our only regret was that it wasn't for longer. The villa is ideally located about one and a half hours' drive from Chania, and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. It is situated on a ridge with panoramic views in every direction.and both the north and south coasts can be reached in about 20 minutes by car. During our stay we travelled widely across the island and were just amazed at the scenery, the great food and the friendly people. As it was springtime, there were wild flowers everywhere and it was ideal for walking. There are so many lovely places to visit on the island, but a particular favourite of ours was the Amari valley, which is easily reached by car. We really enjoyed the Cretan food and were never disappointed with anywhere we ate. In particular though we would recommend a little taverna, can't remember its name, which is the last one on the left as you leave the village of Spilli going east. Do not miss this place if you want to enjoy authentic local food. Caroluma's 'sweet bakery' in Mixorruma is brilliant, and the 'regular' bakery across the road has beautiful fresh bread in the morning.

The villa was immaculate when we arrived and Anna was there to welcome us with a homebaked cake,show us around and make us feel welcome. We also met Eleni who came in every day to clean and make sure we wanted for nothing. Even although we felt the pool was just a little too cold at that time of year, to take the plunge, Eleni kept it spotlessly clean, just in case! The villa is designed with several terraces and sitting out areas, so that even if it is a bit breezy at times, there is always somewhere sheltered where you can sit and enjoy the views.

We have been fortunate to stay in self-catering properties in various parts of the world, but this place is amongst the very best we have come across, and returning for us, is not a question of 'if' but simply when!

PERFECT HOME FOR A RELAXING HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first stay In Crete and we will definitely come back. The villa is very functional, extremely well designed and set in beautiful scenery. It is away from crowded areas and yet close to beaches, Minoan sites, local fruit growers, etc.
Yannis was extrememly helpful in organizing our holiday, as well as assisting during and after our stay (we forgot the camera battery at the villa and Yannis shipped it back to our home in Luxembourg).
We very much appreciated the welcome cake and wine (and the daily cleaning).
Thank you so much Yannis, Anna and Maria !
