Villa Aurora is unique for those who wish a private environment within cretan nature. It is located in the central part of the island in a NATURA protected area that is characterized by a variety in flora and fauna.
It is 18 km (around 15’ by car) far from the deep blue beaches of Mediterranean sea. Next to the Villa there is a river that goes through “Kourtaliotiko” gorge (in a distance of 800 m) ending in “Prevelis” lake and in the amazing Palm Beach. The Villa is only 400 m from ‘Koxare” village and 6 km from “Spili”. So the guests have access to market, tavernas and health centre. Moreover, the central location of the Villa gives the opportunity to our guests to travel all around the island and spend time in its most beautiful beaches (Plakias, Schinaria, Preveli, Rodakino, Agios Paulos, Ligkres, Ammoudi, Chora Sfakion, Fragkokastelo etc).
Villa Aurora is open the whole year. It has 3 floors and can host up to 10 people. It has 4 bedrooms (1 with king size double bed, 1 with double bed and 2 with single beds that can also put together). In the middle floor there is a big sitting room with fireplace, the kitchen and the dining room. In this floor there are also 2 big verandas for food and relaxation offering a nice view to the 3.500 m2 garden with the barbeque and the swimming pool within nature. The 3 bedrooms are in the last floor with their own verandas. In the ground floor there is the biggest bedroom with open living room and fireplace. In every floor there is one bathroom. The villa is family friendly offering extra conveniences for this reason (2 children beds, baby stroller etc).
Villa Aurora is a family house for those who want to enjoy a peaceful environment, good food and meet the cretan culture, the beauties of our island and our souls.
The area has a magnificent natural environment a part from the small rivers and brooks here and there,here too,there are lakes and lagoons,caves and rocks,as well as several gorges both .Is a place full contrasts,going from one village to another by car or motorbike is , in most cases,one of the attractios of the place. The secondary roas leading to them pass through sites extre-mely scenic and beautiful,and driving, or even walking there,is an unforgettable experience.The most famous area of natural is the Preveli Lagoon at the 12Km away from Villa Aurora. It is a unique sandy beach,very beautiful,with a forest of palm trees,which make it quite exotic.The mouth of the river Kourtaliotis is at the beach,the river has enough water even in summer and just before flowing into the sea it forms a small lagoon .The entire morpho-logy of the land,from the Kourtaliotiko Gorge to the Gorge of Prevelis that ends abruptly in the Libyan Sea as well as the ''Lake'', consent to an explosion of biodiversity.At Kourtaliotiko Aa spectacular sight with crystal clear water that emerges most of the seasons fromevery breach and opening of the rocks forming small and large waterfalls, becomes one with the water of Kourtaliotis forming the constant stream of Megalos Potamos. Due to all the aformentioned reasos, the relief of the area is diverse and impressive! Crete is not like any other Greek island,Crete is one of the most hospitable places in Greece.At Rethymno the Cretan people,apart from the famous hospitality, know how to enjoy themselves,both in private and in public activities such as the Renaissance Festinal, the Carnival, the Treasure Hunt and the unique Cretan Wine Festival.A local feast ''panigiri'' takes place in Koxare of Santa Maria on the 15th of Aug.The interesting cave of Agios Antonios is situated 14Km far from Villa ,it is open to visitors, mainly because of the archaeo-logical interest it presents, it has been used as a place of worship from the Late Minoan.

The villa are carefully designed to operate year round for those seeking a rural getaway and seeks tranquility the area is a small universe filled with beauty....
Stunning villa set over 3 floors. Each room is traditionally decorated to the highest standard and the gardens are huge! Surround by olive groves and a small vineyard with goats roaming in the fields near by this villa is
traditional and real if you are looking for a local experience.
The hosts could not be more helpful and will be waiting for you on arrival with a fresh meal and if your lucky some delicious orange cake!
We travelled the island while we were here and would definitely recommend here over Chania. Just our personal taste but Rethymno has everything Chania has but with less tourists no haukers and more vibe due to the Crete university.
The villa is also ideally located for quick raids into other regions and some of the best tourist sites the South of Crete has to offer. Within 20 mins drive you could be in world class beaches, breathtaking mountain restraunts or the old city of rethymno which is so alive you have to experience it for yourself.
You don't even have to leave the villa to have a special experience. The sunsets over the mountains from the bedroom balcony are worthy of a Shakespeare sonnet! The pool is clean and fresh with a shallow section for little kids. The views wherever you go will put a smile on your face regardless of which corner you lay your hat on.
I would absolutely recommend this villa and would not hesitate to stay here again.
Our second visit to Villa Aurora and it was just as great as the first visit. The villa is spacious, spotless and comfortable, and we were made very welcome. There are countryside walks nearby (gentle or mountainous) and it is easy to drive to the south coast or north coast for beaches. A car is essential, even for local shops or restaurants. For bread and fruits try the bakers in Mixorrouma. For restaurants try Misogynous in Damnoni. Or just chill by the pool!
this is an excellent villa in every way. absolutely spotless, spacious, very well maintained, fully equipped kitchen, wonderful clean swimming pool and garden. you couldn't wish for a better and kind owner of this villa, very nice people. would definitely go back and absolutely recommend
Excellent stay, very spacious with sparkling pool. The owner even had dinner waiting for us. She picked us fruit from the garden and baked us a cake! Very clean and well cared for. A bit hard to find as the road is not well marked, but you will not regret a moment once you get there....
We were welcomed by Eleni and Natasha. They gave us a warm welcome, and thorough tour of the house and grounds. They had prepared for us a traditional Cretan dish and dessert as well as fresh fruit, bottle of local wine and drinks in the refrigerator. The villa was everything the online listing described! The villa was luxurious and comfortable. Very clean and well-kept. Eleni and Natasha were easily accessible and gracious. Their recommendations for beaches and tavernas were helpful and accurate. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone! In a word, it was perfect!
If you wonder why this villa has only top ratings it is simply because all the pictures and stories you read about the house and Elenis hospitality are true. The villa is a perfect stay for all families who want to relax away from typical overcrowded spots. The location is very nice and the ensemble was built with much think about the usefulness. You see it was planned with love for every small detail. In the end our kids were sad to leave and we started to think that Eleni even planned the perfect weather for our stay...
