Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Chromonastiri - Mamis Mansion, Jacuzzi Terrace

Character house within walking distance to restaurants, cafes and super markets!

Mamis house is a beautifully restored traditional home with all the modern amenities, combined with the local element and atmosphere of the village! It has been completely renovated recently with respect to the unique architecture and style of the old building and has become the ideal house for rest and relaxation that enchants visitors any time of the year!

It's size makes it ideal for families or couples who want to experience the true cretan style of life in a picturesque location, characteristic of the cretan land!


Ground Floor

At the exterior of the house there is a stone-paved veranda with seating and dining area, flowers and amazing sea views!

The two storey house comprises a spacious living room, a fully equipped kitchen with dinning area, a bathroom with shower and a spacious bedroom with a small hall, ideal for relaxation and reading moments, on the ground floor.

First Floor

On the first floor there is another bedroom with a small private veranda and a hall that could accommodate an extra person and another bathroom.

To make things better, on the first floor there is a solarium terrace, featuring a great Jacuzzi tub for four people, sun beds and umbrellas, with magnificent views to the countryside and the surrounding area. Respecting the environment and trying to use alternative energy sources, our jacuzzi tub is connected with solar panels and fills up with hot water from the boiler! For that reason, in days with not enough sunshine (mainly in April and May) it may not be possible to operate. But don't worry…in Crete there is sunshine most of the time!

All village facilities, such as taverns and mini market are within walking distance from the house!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had never been to Crete before, this seemed like a good place for us to visit as it's easy to drive in any direction and see a lot of Crete and still come home to a nice village and quite an amazing property! We were amazed by the hospitality from everybody we got to meet, and if we had any questions Valia never took long to reply to us. Thank you so much!! Would definitely recommend staying here!

Herzlicher Empfang und originelles Haus

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in Mamis Mansion und ebenso im Dorf Chromonastiri sehr wohl gefühlt. Der Empfang durch den Eigentümer und Mr. Michalis war herzlich, wir fühlten uns sofort willkommen. Ein typisches altes Steinhaus wurde sehr schön renoviert und liebevoll und üppig mit alten Gebrauchsgegenständen ausgestattet. Fast schon ein kleines Heimatmuseum! Wir haben vor allem die große untere Terrasse vor dem Haus mit dem tollen Wein genossen. Sehr zu empfehlen ist die Taverne Athivoles, die nur wenige Schritte entfernt liegt. Lecker und auch dort herzliche Atmossphäre. Mamis Mansion und Chromonastiri werden wir weiterempfehlen.

Villa très agréable dans un village proche de rethymno qui est très typique et animé

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 3 couples et nous avons passés un très bon séjour, très bonne communication du propriétaire, et logement correspondant aux photos et propre, dans le village il y a deux restaurants très bon où l'on goûte aux produits locaux. Une mise en relation avec un service de location de voiture a été proposé par le propriétaire, nous avons utilisé ce service, c'était parfait. A recommander

endroit magnifique

  • 5 of 5

j'ai séjourné 15 jours dans cette superbe maison.

Le village est très beau et pittoresque, les habitants très chaleureux. Il y a 2 tavernes dans le village où l'on est très bien accueillies et où l'on mange trés bien.

le propriétaire de la maison a très bien restauré l'endroit, et il y a de jolies décorations, et tout ce qu'il faut pour faire la cuisine et se detendre. Il y fait bon vivre, et il est agréable de passer les soirées sur les terrasses, ou d'y dejeuner le matin.

Merci pour les petits cadeaux de bienvenue que nous avons appréciés.

Michalis nous attendait à notre arrivée tardive, et nous a aidé pour les bagages, ce qui était bien sympathique.

Je recommande cet endroit à toutes les personnes qui recherchent un lieu authentique, loin de la foule de Rethymnon qui n'est pourtant qu'a quelques minutes de route.

The picturesque village of Chromonastiri is located 7 Kms southeast of Rethymno town. It has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value and it’s considered as one of the most important historic settlements of Rethymno. Chromonastiri means 'Colour Monastery' after the Byzantine church dating from the 11th century.

Within this pretty village there are numerous stone paths, historic alleys, buildings with Venetian architectural elements are scattered in the village, but the most imposing building is the so-called Villa Claudio, a magnificent mansion, which has been restored and now houses an Army museum. At the village’s square, within 100 meters walking distance, there are two tavernas, a traditional cafe and a super market! Furthermore, a 5X5 football field and a children’s playground exist in the village. Additionally, its location and surrounding area makes it a perfect destination for a relaxing holiday close to nature!

Chromonastiri is ideally located 9 Kms from the beautiful sandy beach of Rethymno and it’s offered as a great base for exploring the nearby villages! The Mili Gorge, a wonderful leafy area, can be found just 2 Kms away, along the Amari Road. There are also a several small ponds and a picnic area. Additionally, Roussospiti village, next to Chromonastiri, also a a preserved and traditional settlement, offers two traditional tavernas, playground, a cafe and mini market.

Furthermore, in the nearby village of Saint Irene (Agia Irini) there is the homonymous old Monastery, which is considered to date back to the 14th century.

Additionally, from the village you can easily reach the highway leading to Chania and Heraklion cities.
