The Neighborhood

Villa Ermis is situated very close to Rethymnon town , half way between both north and south beaches of the island. Inspite being so close to all the main turistic spots it is 2km off the main road leading from Rethymnon to the south beaches, so it is unspoiled by the "development" the turist mass brings along.

The area is very green full of olive, cypress and oak trees and it has breathtaking mountain views. There are also some very good taverns in a few meters to a few km dictance from the house.

The village where the house is situated is very small, therefor very piecfull and quiet. The only "noice" you might listen to is some distant sheep bah and bells, rooster cock-a-doodle-doos, the church bell and the priest singing on Sundays, or some traveling sellers that pass by the village.

Transport

There is no convenient public transportation in the area (there is a bus line that goes to Rethymnon once daily). We highly recommend if you wish to come and stay with us you hire a car. Crete is the largest island in Greece so you have to explore our unique surroundings

House Rules

The only rule is to be yourself!! Relax and enjoy the laugh treatment!!

George, hope to see you soon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had the best time in Crete with George. He showed us the town tavern where we met wonderful people and had the best time on our trip. His home is beautiful and you will have everything you need there. There is plenty to do nearby and swimming is easy to find. We will return to see him as soon as we can. If you're reading this - book it!

We just came back from an amazing Crete holiday. one of the main reasons for this successful week was this Villa. Hidden on a hill surrounded with oak and olive trees is this gem. The Villa is large and spacious with 3 bedrooms 2 beds in the children's room and 2 more double beds. The living room and kitchen are fully equipped even with a PS3 conneted to a cinema projector.

Location was perfect 15 minutes to Rythemno beach and about 30minutes to the south side of the island with it's wild beaches. You should definitely rent a car while staying here. The road to the villa seems narrow and steep at first but after a day was completely simple even for a big saloon car like the one we got.

A small vegteble garden has fresh organic tomatoes, cucumbers eggplants and more, there are 2 mini markets nearby at Armeni and few good restaurants especially the local tavern at Kastello.

George was a perfect host, full of advice and knowledgeable regarding the island. He has a bookbinding workshop in the premise don't miss a visit there.
