I have stuied german as a foreign language in Thessaloniki, completed my military service in Germany and i have returned in Rethymnon the year 2012. Ever since i have been giving lessons about the german language.

Alexandros Psaroudakis-Birgel purchased this villa in 1980

Why Alexandros Psaroudakis-Birgel chose Goulediana

My family and i are currently living in the city. We renovated our house in the village and we are offering it to you! I believe that the one who chooses to stay there will be completely satisfied. The relaxing enviroment will provide that!

What makes this villa unique

Furthemore the villa has some other attributes, which are:

- Spacious areas and bedrooms which makes it ideal for big groups searching for comfortable accommodation.

- Its layout as it offers two kitchens and living room areas ideal for large groups.

- Its location is “away from it all” in a totally natural environment but close to everything. Situated in such a position that the possibilities of interaction with the locals are unlimited and the Cretan hospitality experience unavoidable. Another advantage of the villas positioning is that your just half an hour away by car from the amazing natural beaches found on the south coast.

- The famous traditional tavern just 10 meters away, well known to locals and where you can taste original Cretan cuisine!

What we wish is to help our guests to manage their vacation properties to their full advantage, to relax and have the finest holiday experience with 24/7 service providing advice and information for all their concerns throughout their stay.

The villa is located in the centre of village Goulediana. A small village on the way to South Crete it lies approx. 15 km away from Rethymno city and the beach! The area around the village is natural and peaceful. Its central location allows you the choice of easily visiting both the cosmopolitan beaches on the north coast and the tranquil beaches of the south coast. The closest largest village where shops and supermarkets are found is Armeni, which is 5 minutes away by car! In the village centre of Goulediana and only a few meters away from the villa you can find a tavern very well known to all locals and in which you will be able to taste some of the most authentic traditional Cretan cuisine!!

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different 'location category' on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own 'location categories').
