Aabsolutely amazing experience!

  • 5 of 5

Evita’s home is a little gem with a breathtaking view of all Rethymnon town, the Fortezza and the coast.

The house is small but very clean and well organized, perfect for a couple or 3 people. The outside area is the real winner, beautifully decorated, with all the necessary amenities to enjoy your break. The BBQ area including a wood fired pizza oven is just perfect. Both the management and the owners of the house are wonderful and very helpful people and helped a lot in making us comfortable and enjoying our stay. We will definitely book it again.

Excellent séjour à Rethymnon

  • 5 of 5

La maison était parfaitement équipée (climatisation, salle de bains, cuisine). Sa surface modeste n'est pas un problème dans la mesure où nous avons passé la grande majorité du temps sur la terrasse (repas, apéritifs, lecture, travail), sur la grande table, les fauteuils ou encore les transats, le tout à l'ombre des parasols et des oliviers, et avec une vue magnifique, y compris le coucher de soleil.

Mention spéciale au très grand et efficace barbecue, un vrai plaisir.

Les propriétaires sont charmants et nous ont accueillis avec des fruits et nous ont offert vin, ouzo et huile d'olive à notre départ. Ils étaient disponibles pour faire le check-out à plus de 22h car notre avion était en pleine nuit.

Valia, de l'agence en charge de la location, nous a fourni un guide de bonnes adresses, des bons de réduction, et nous a proposé tous les services dont nous pouvions avoir besoin.

A recommander comme une excellente adresse, idéalement placée pour visiter la crête, car proche de la route menant aux magnifiques plages du sud.

Griechische Gastfreundschaft

  • 5 of 5

Die Gastgeberin Mona ist der Hammer! Sie ist unglaublich hilfsbereit, gibt einem gute Tipps rund um Kreta. Wir bekamen köstliches Olivenöl von ihrem Olivenhain und fühlten uns in der Unterkunft sehr wohl! Absolut zu empfehlen!

Wunderschönes Haus mit unglaublicher Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 5 Tage in Monas Haus verbracht. Das Haus ist sehr schön im Olivenhain gelegen und hat alles was man für einen gelungenen Urlaub braucht! Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Restaurants, etc. sind auch sehr einfach zu erreichen.

Von der Terrasse hat man eine unglaublich schöne Aussicht auf das Meer und kann hier sehr schön den Sonnenuntergang genießen.

Mona war zudem eine sehr liebevolle Gastgeberin und hat uns mit selbst eingelegten Oliven, Ouzo und Olivenöl versorgt. Jederzeit komme ich sehr gerne wieder!

Evita's Home is beautifully located close to Platania and just a 10 minute drive from Rethymno town. Not to mention that Evita’s Home is situated in an absolutely private area with olive groves and also providing spectacular sea views. The long sandy beach is located just 2 km away.

Shopping facilities for your everyday need can be found in Platania, such as a bakery, an ATM machine, a petrol station, a pharmacy, as well as well stocked super markets.

A short scenic drive through the olive groves will lead you to the historic village of Maroulas, which is built on top of a hill at an altitude of 240 meters and has been classified as a preserved and traditional heritage site of great cultural value. For this reason, the construction of new buildings should be carried out with the cooperation of the archaeological department.

The Venetian influence is very obvious in this area, as most of the buildings date back to at least the Venetian era, when two towers, which are still present today, and other buildings with loopholes, were built. The visitor can also admire numerous cisterns, serpentine narrow streets, chimneys and large arched stone doors of Venetian mansions all around the village, as well as an old oil press. In summer you might as well appreciate the rare and unique aroma of herbs and flowers, the sound of the natural spring water and the shadow of the giant plane trees!

Also, worth visiting is the church of Prophet Elias at the top of the hill, which offers panoramic view of the village and the Cretan Sea and gorge. In the village there is a feast in honour of Prophet Elias on the 20th of July.

As you walk around in Maroulas, you travel back in time in times very different from our own and the scenery brings you images of princesses, forbidden loves, white horses and dragons…apart from the dragons, the rest might be true!
