A splendid villa
A secluded and majestic location with a beautiful sea view set in lovely well maintained gardens. Fresh eggs from the chickens. Tomatoes and aubergines were provided. The villa is very well appointed with marble floors and air conditioned rooms.

The local village (Gerani) has a superb baker, good taverna and mini markets one with a butcher. Rethymon is only 10mins away with a historic old town and many good restaurants.
Great villa with amazing services and facilities.
Lovely villa with great amenities and services. Kostas and his team from etouri were very helpful during all our stay and provided top quality customer service. Even in case of an emergency in the middle of the night they responded and suggested where to go.
Overall great experience!
A relaxing luxurious stay
This is a fabulous villa in a fabulous location, perfect for our large group of 12 people. Every little thing that you could want has been thought about and provided. The bbq area is my favourite, with built in bbq and wood oven. The villa was spotless with a cleaner visiting daily and linen changed every two days. A fabulous greek experience.
Spacious Luxury Accommodation
We were very impressed with the overall appearance of the property upon arrival and the welcome party that we had from Mr and Mrs Petros, Costas and team. They ensured that we were very happy with everything and were very generous throughout our stay. The accommodation was very spacious for our party of 12 and decorated to a high standard. Lots of thought given to providing extras for our stay and we enjoyed having the chickens in the back garden to collect eggs on a daily basis and the vegetable garden to feast on. We enjoyed the BBQ area at night and hosted our own Cretian Olympics in the lovely pool and tennis court. Something for everyone at this property and we were overwhelmed with the generosity of Mr Petros.
Très bon séjour dans cette villa,même si quelques petites choses comme l'insonorisation ou les odeurs de fioul peuvent être améliorées.l'Acceuil et les renseignements fournis étaient parfait.
Villa Gerani Hill is located on a private hill, 1 km outside the small traditional village Gerani overlooking Cretan sea which are located only a few km away.
The surrounding area is a quiet, natural environment ideal for relaxation but also very close to all kinds of supplies shops, restaurants and various services. The closest living area is the village of Gerani where you can find many traditional taverns, mini market, butcher and pharmacy. The city centre of Rethymno is only 8 km away. Close to the villa you will find several beaches that you should visit. The most popular one is the long sandy beach of Episkopi which is 5 km away with various organised spots with sun beds, taverns and beach bars or secluded quiet spots and the long sandy beach which lies in front of Rethymno city (8 km away).
The villa’s location is ideal for one more reason, it is only 1 km to the main national road, thus making excursions around Crete a very easy thing to do.
It is beyond any doubt that our villa combines both unique privacy but also easy access to facilities and places, offering a rare luxury to shape your holidays just the way you like.
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").
