Beachfront villa in Rethymno, with pool, 1.5km from Rethymno city center!
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Great beachfront location

  • 4 of 5

Literally steps from the beach, a 30min walk into Rethymno or 5min taxi ride (approx 5E) this villa was well situated for our group of 11 friends. Easy walking distance to restaurants and supermarkets along the seafront or down the side streets. The pool is slightly smaller than we were expecting but with the sea so close it was fine. Rooms were a nice size. Elizabeth and Evmorfia were really helpful during the booking process and while we were there.
