Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We stay 2 weeks in the villa and everything was perfect. Full equiped and very clean. Isolated and very calm. Close from Spili who is easy to shop. The pool is big and well maintained (only 1,70 m depth everywhere so children can not walk in the water). The house is clean every 5 days and bed linen and towels changed. Wonderful. Highly recommended !!!!

Schön Einsam

  • 4 of 5

Hasu und Anlage entsprachen den Erwartungen.

Die Lage und der Blick sind sehr schön. Hinter dem Haus führt eine Strasse entlang. Die ist aber so unbefahren, das es zu keiner Lärmbelästigung kommt

Das Haus hatte alles was man benötigt.

Loudis villa situated in Spili, one of the most famous towns in Rethymno.Inside the town they have everything which makes a genuine Cretan small town complete: Shops, supermarkets, post and bank offices, grammar school and high school, churches, hairdresser, pharmacy, a Medical Centre and even an episcopal palace all just 2 minutes away by car.

During the summer half-year, the suburban bus from Rethymnon to Aghia Galini (24 kms) touches Spili 5 times per day, and during the winter half-year 4 times. In the town centre, lifestyle is expressively relaxed. A Venetian style fountain with 25 water-spitting lionheads is the town's landmark, and there are even some old houses which originally remain from the Venetian era.As a basis for more extended excursions, Spili suits perfectly as well. In eastward direction via Gerakari, one can enter the Amari Valley with it's incomparable landscape between the foothills of the Ida mountains, with the Antonios cave near Patsos, and with Minoan excavation sites at Thronos and Apodoulou.

Northwards, the town of Rethymnon offers vibrant tourism and a 17 kms long beach where all kinds of watersports are on offer. Westwards via Frati, one can pass the Kourtaliotiko Gorge towards the south coast. Do not miss to visit the small port village of Hora Sfakion, and the abandoned village of Aradena above. The palm beach of Preveli is located there, and so are the villages of Plakias, Rodakino and Frangokastello and between them several other beaches of different types. In southward direction there are the beaches of Kerames and Akoumia which have very fine sand but still not too many visitors, and the small town of Agia Galini with it's picturesque fishing-port. The excavation sites of Festos (Phaistos) and Gortys are not far away, and the caves by the beach of Matala are worth a side-trip as well.
