About Andriana Xenaki

I was born and raised in Rethymno. The villa is a century old, fully restored stone cottage. My family has owned it for generations and recently we renovated it and started renting it! We hope that you will have a wonderful stay!

Andriana Xenaki purchased this villa in 1900

Fantastic Character - Great Rural Location

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic Cretan experience away from the crowds and fussiness of sprawling hotel complexes then Villa Andriana makes an excellent choice. You will be surrounded by locals, waking up to the sounds of goat bells, chickens and sheep as the villagers go about their daily lives. Andriana was kind enough to provide us with some essentials on our arrival including some wonderful fruit, beer, wine and bread and the cupboards were well stocked with coffee, sugar, salt etc. all those small things that make a kitchen feel complete. Two bathrooms with showers avoided having to queue after a day at the beach and air conditioning in each bedroom meant everyone got a comfy nights sleep. You will need a car but are never far away from shops, supermarkets and beaches as well as some fantastic local tavernas. Crete's 3rd largest city, Rethynmo is a 15 minute drive and is well worth a visit especially the Venetian fortress and harbour. The Arkadi Monastery is another trip worth taking and is only a 45 minute drive away through some spectacular scenery. Andriana is a charming host and was always on call to answer any questions.
