The villa which was previously an olive press and has been beautifully renovated. The photo do not really do it justice. The bedrooms are huge The village of Armeoni was a short stroll from the villa were we discovered a lovely traverna were we ate 4 times. The supermarkets are well stocked and the local could not be more helpful. A special delight for us all was the lady next door providing us with newly laid eggs and tomatoes from her garden.
Superb villa full of charm and renovated with great taste. The courtyard and terrace make you want to come back to a more sunny time to enjoy the pool more. The house is located a few minutes from the village where there are many small shops that can be opened very late (bakeries grocery stores petrol stations and inns). 10 minutes from Rethymnon and about 30 minutes from the south of the island. We were greeted very warmly at our late arrival and we thoroughly enjoyed the comforts of the housekeeping and the linen changed in mid-stay. Luxury
I would not hesitate to recommend Archontiko Galliaki. The villa is beautiful and very well located for Rethymno and only a 20-30 minute drive of the lovely beaches on the south of the island at Plakias and Souda Bay. There are a couple of supermarkets and an excellent family run taverna in the village as well as a bakery and pharmacy. If you like to get away from it all then this is the perfect spot but hop in the car and within 10 minutes you will be in the heart of Rethymno to enjoy the excellent restaurants shopping or nightlife. I would suggest a car is essential if you really want to make the most of Crete but many excursions can be arranged from Rethymno. We used Klados Travel for our excursion to the Samaria Gorge. Chania is well worth a visit - closer to home there is the Melidoni Cave and the Arkadi Monastry. We will most definitely be back
The position of the villa allows you to discover Rethymnon very easily and the splendid southern beaches. The village is very pleasant and all amenities are available. The house is beautiful, three small apartments which the children loved. We highly recommend this property!
We enjoyed our stay very much we definitely would recommend the property to others.
we have had a great time. It is a lovely place to stay.
We had a wonderful family holiday. The villa is well located in central Crete a short drive from Rethymno and within an hour of many destinations but also in a quiet traditional village. We enjoyed the mix of relaxing by the pool and seeing some of the historic sites often ending the day with a meal at the excellent local taverna.

The Old Venetian Town radiates out from the fortress along narrow lanes with small shops, arts and crafts workshops, restful bars, and numerous restaurants.
