About George Venieris

This lovelly cottage was rented (not purchased ) last year and made some improvements only to make it easier for our visitors. The house is based on centuries old family cottage from my relatives from my father's side

George Venieris purchased this cottage in 2015

Why George Venieris chose Rethymno

From my childhood memories in the summer time, where we used to play in the large garden , run chasing the goats and chickens , and enjoy freshly squeezed lemonades

Nice cottage in the mountains 15 minutes from the

  • 4 of 5

We stayed one week in this rural cottage and had a very nice time. George had us installed nicely. We are a family with three boys aged 9, 10 and 11 and we can highly recommend this place to other families. You do need a car to stay here. Very well working wifi in the house.
