Overview

About the property

Villa with pool, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, beautiful gardens & panoramic views

Villa Elena is a very spacious family-friendly villa, in a private, enclosed and not overlooked land plot. Its interior includes 4 spacious bedrooms that can comfortably sleep up to 8 adults, a very large open plan living-dining-kitchen area with ample sitting for all our guests and two bathrooms. The exterior area's luscious garden, private swimming pool with separate children's pool and adjacent BBQ, will be the perfect surroundings for you to enjoy a rejuvenating holiday in Crete!

Villa Elena is located 14 kilometers east of Rethymno, on the outskirts of Viran Episkopi, a quiet village built around the old diocese of 'Agrion' which had been established in the area during the Venetian occupation of Crete. Its central location along the island and its proximity to the north National Highway (2,5kms away) make it the ideal accommodation for excursions the west, east, north and south parts of Crete!

The villa is 180sq.m. large, has a 45sq.m. private swimming pool with separate children’s pool and is surrounded by a rich, beautiful garden within a 14.000sq.m. private olive grove.

The first floor main entrance leads into a large open plan dining room/lounge furnished with period furniture, an adjacent sitting room with comfortable sitting, followed by a fully equipped built-in kitchen with a large dining table. There is also a spacious bathroom with shower/WC.

A wooden staircase leads to the second floor which has four bedrooms, all of them with air-conditioning and a spacious bathroom with bathtub/WC.

Two of the bedrooms have queen-size double beds and two have twin beds. A baby cot is available on request.

The balconies spanning around both floors offer you breathtaking, panoramic views towards the mountains of Psiloritis and Lefka Ori and the surrounding landscape.

The nearest taverns can be found at 300m distance in Viran Episkopi, whereas the sandy beach and nearest super-markets are in Stavromenos just 2,5 Kms away.

In the small town of Perama 10 Kms away, there are super-markets, banks and ATMs, the post office, taverns and a large variety of shops.

Interesting nearby outings can be made to the traditional village of Margarites, the ancient ruins of old Eleftherna and the historical monastery of Arkadi. The brand new museum of old Eleftherna will be open to the public from 2015. Due to the quiet setting, a car would be considered essential to explore the immediate area and the island in general.

Villa Elena is bonded to the 'Greek National Tourism Organisation', thus ensuring the quality & security of your vacation. G.N.T.O. No: 1041K122K2739501

About Yiannis Paterakis

Dear Guests hello, my name is Yiannis Paterakis. I was born and grew up in the city of Rethymno in Crete. After studying for a few years at Thessaloniki in northern Greece, I returned to my home town where I have been living ever since.

From 2013 until today, I have assumed the management of 'Villa Elena', our family owned, beautiful holiday villa located in the village of Viran Episkopi, which is my father's birth place.

We are very happy to welcome your visit to our villa and will do our best efforts to make your vacation in Crete a relaxing, fulfilling and memorable experience!

Yiannis Paterakis purchased this villa in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

Отдыхали в августе. Очень отзывчивые хозяева. По приезду хозяева приготовили приятный сюрприз - обед. Красивые виды на горы и собственный оливковый сад. Все чисто, уютно. Необходим автомобиль. В деревне пару таверн с вкусной домашней недорогой кухней. До пляжа километра три. Столько же до продовольственных магазинов (в одном есть свежая рыба). Нам очень понравилось.

A stunning villa for private, relaxed holidays!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent our family holidays last April in this amazing villa, which was located in a quiet area, close to the city of Rethymno The house was extremely comfortable, and our children loved the large swimming pool! The garden was a piece of heaven and there was also a lovely barbecue available for us to use. The owners made us feel very welcome and comfortable, offering both useful advice for visiting interesting sightseeings and delicious homemade meals and local produce. Highly recommended place for private, relaxed family holidays. We will certainly visit Villa Elena again in the future!
