Un petit paradis niché dans les montagnes !

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison, une magnifique et grande piscine ( 10 m sur 5m ), situation géographique éloignée de l'agitation du bord de mer et qui permet de découvrir la Crète ( véhicule indispensable). Location idéale pour une famille de 4 personnes .Villa totalement conforme au descriptif annoncé. Nous retiendrions la bonne organisation de notre séjour ( 17 jours ) par Valia et surtout la gentillesse et l'accueil exemplaire d'Anastasia ( même à 1h00 du matin après un retard d'avion de 11h00 ! ). Service d'entretien de la maison et de la piscine irréprochable.Pour un 1er voyage en Crète nous avons été comblé.

Anastasia, la villa et les hirondelles nous ont donné envie de revenir...

The village of Episkopi is located 34 Kms east of the city of Rethymno and in the midst of Psiloritis and Kouloukonas Mountains. Halfway up the national road, between Heraklion and Rethymnon, on the west coast of Crete, the road turns into the mountains at Panormo. A winding road, with fantastic views of the surrounding area, brings you to Episkopi.

The village, with its ancient history is an ideal place to learn about customs, traditions and experience the authentic rural way of life and local hospitality. Throughout the area visitors are invited to walk in a region of particular natural beauty and to admire several important monuments. The region is offered for excursions, combining naturalist and archaeological routes that constitute an important “map” of experiences.

The forest of Milopotamo, running alongside the old National Road, is beautiful. Mountaineering in Psiloritis and Kouloukonas regions provides a wealth of unforgettable experiences, and quite a few surprises. Crete's highest peak, Mount Psiloritis, where the gods strolled in ancient times, is a sacred place with wild nature and unique breathtaking beauty. It always was and continues to be a symbol of the island since the Minoan period.

Traveling at leisure around the watermills of Damavolou, at Kato Vrisi, Garazo, Moussai villages and Meteoro of Axos village offers a constant pleasure for nature lovers.

The hinterland of the area of Mylopotamos invites you to visit the monuments of Christian culture such as The Monastery of Vossako which dates back to 1195 and is operating at the foot of the Talea Mountain Range up until today.

The Municipality of Kouloukona organises every year many interesting cultural events open to residents and to visitors alike.The "Talea Festival" with theatre performances, art exhibitions, concerts and various other ravishing activities is a yearly summer festival well worth visiting.

Episkopi is situated just 15 Kms away of beautiful, clean and organised sandy beaches of Panormo.

Every morning, a 'mobile supermarket' comes to the village square. Most of the common products are sold and at reasonable prices. In case you need something that he doesn't have with him, he will deliver it later to your door. Apart from that, supermarkets and taverns as well as a range of other shops are found in the nearby town 3 Kms away. There is also regional tavern and a traditional cafe at the village.
