Romslig og barnevennlig eiendom

  • 5 of 5

Vi leide denne villaen i 2 uker i juli/august 2016. Vi var tilsammen 7 voksne, 2 barn og en baby (3 familier). Villaen fungerte aldeles utmerket for oss. Det var fire soverom, alle med klimaanlegg. Det var godt å ha i varmen. En av tingene vi likte best var at eiendommen har flere uteplasser, 2 terasser, en uteplass foran og en bak. Det var også et eget område med stor grill og spiseplass. I tillegg kommer bassengområde med solstoler. Med totalt 9 mennesker opplevde vi aldri at det ble for trangt. Vi hadde med oss en baby på 1,5 år. Det var godt tilrettelagt for et lite barn, både med babyseng og stol, men også leker både inne og ute. Villaen ligger i en liten landsby ca 7 km fra Rethymnon. Det finnes et par tavernaer der som serverer god mat. Det er også en liten butikk med begrenset åpningstid. Vi gjorde det meste av innkjøpene våre på INKA i byen og lagde mye mat i huset. Men vi var også tavernane flere ganger. Husverten Gregory var svært hyggelig og imøtekommende. Vi var alle svært fornøyd med oppholdet vårt og anbefaler det gjerne til andre.

Beautiful Cretan Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa on the hill in Chromonistarie is lovely. I cannot comment on the written description of the villa as I visited the property and saw for myself. The villa is well maintained and spotless. It has a lovely garden with beautiful roses and many other flowering plants besides a crystal clear pool that is maintained with regard to the eco-system...no chlorine smell. The owner went far out of his way to make our stay perfect. We arrived very late at night. The kitchen was stocked with food for breakfast the next day. How lovely to have coffee and breakfast with without having to go to the grocery first thing upon arising. I realized how thoughtful and caring this person is and he continued to be throughout our four week stay. I would strongly recommend this house to anyone. We loved the pool and the terraces with splendid views of the city of Rethmnon, the mountains and the Mediterranean. The villa is located in the village with several small tavernas that serve outstanding local cuisine within a three minute walk. It is close enough to the larger towns to be able to shop and do tourist things easily making it a wonderful haven to return to at the end of the day away from the hustle and bustle of a big town. Love the house, the owner and his family and plan to return.

Magnifique

  • 5 of 5

Maison située au calme dans un petit village très agréable à 15 minutes de Rethymnon.

Parfaitement bien équipée et spacieuse avec un jardin et une piscine tous les deux très agréables avec vue sur la mer au loin.

La situation de la maison permet de faire de belles excursions (nous sommes à 1 heure du sud de la Crète et de Hania) mais cette maison est si agréable qu'on peut aussi y passer la journée et rester dans le village qui abrite deux auberges dont une où nous avons pris tous nos dîners sur la place du village.

Nous avons en outre été très bien accueillis par Gregori qui était aux petits soins avec nous. J'ai notamment apprécié qu'il y ait à notre disposition, de la nourriture pour un premier repas et petit déjeuner, de la lessive etc... genres de détails qui font la différence.

The picturesque village of Chromonastiri is located 9 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 70 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 7 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.
