Relaxation Guaranteed at this villa

  • 5 of 5

The property has been beautifully renovated to provide a relaxing retreat. The villa is in a very quiet location offering complete relaxation buy the large pool which along with the terrace is a complete sun trap.

The property was spotless when we arrived, and was cleaned with linens and towels changed within a few days of our stay.

The owner is very generous and left melons for us, and returned on the Saturday morning with fresh for us to bbq that evening.

Margarites is a short drive away with lots of pottery on offer and several tavernas whilst Rethmino can be reached within half an hour. You'll definitely need a car.

I would thoroughly recommend this villa if you're looking for a relaxing holiday.

La villa è splendida.

  • 5 of 5

La villa è splendida. appena ristrutturata e situata in un piccolo villaggio immerso nel verde degli ulivi.

Il mare è raggiungibile in 20 mimuti (circa 10 km).

Il proprietario è una persona squisita ed il servizio fornito eccellente.

Pur essendo un unico immobile può essere abbitato anche da tre famiglie, in quanto le tre camere principali sono tra loro indipendenti.

Alle spalle della piscina c'è un bel giardino con agrumi ed ulivi, ed a bordo piscina un grande tavolo per oltre 10 persone.

Ogni stanza è dotata di climatizzatore indipendente, anche se il bel clima secco e ventilato ne ha reso poco indispensabile l'utilizzo.

Unico suggerimento per il Proprietario: installare una doccia esterna a bordo piscina.

Ringraziamo il proprietario per la cortesia, e la simpatia, felici di averlo conosciuto.

Consiglierei sicuramente la villa a gruppi di due o tre famiglie affiatate, che ricerchino una vacanza bella e rilassante in un bellissimo contesto a pochi km dal mare.

Anche i pochi abitanti del villaggio sono stati molto cortesi. Una bellissima vacanza!

At the northwestern foothills of Mountain Idi, at an altitude of approximately 380 m and close to the villa, there is the ancient city of Eleftherna. Today, ruins from different historic periods of ancient Eleftherna are rescued.

Eleftherna is the 'next big thing' on Crete's archaeological map. A brand new museum is now open along with the archaeological site itself.

Last but not least, for those who want to get the most of it: Cycling or walking excursions by following the E4 path Arkadi – Eleftherna – Margarites. Each destination has its own beauty. Total path length: 12km, duration 4.5 hours, suggested period: all year round, difficulty level: the gradients are not steep, yet the route is quite tiring.

Panormo is the closest beach -app. 13 km-, where you can find amazing tavernas with fresh fish, coffee shops, market, souvenir shops and amazing sandy beach with all sorts of summer sea sports and unique sea caves that you can explore.

Rethymno city and its venetian Old Town is 25 km away where you can walk around the picturesque alleys, do your shopping in the flea market (every Thursday morning) and the local shops, visit our museums, our fortress, venetian port and the lighthouse, have dinner with your loved ones in a variety of amazing restaurants in the old town and enjoy a relaxing drink in one of the endless bars that you will find along the beach.

For any further questions please contact me directly.
