About the Owner

We have settled in Rethymno with my wife and son since 2006 after we returned from Manchester UK where I spent many years to complete my training in Dermatology and my Doctorate thesis from the University of Manchester. I love nature, meditation, and music as I am musician myself. Vederi offers me the opportunity to relax and enjoy the stillness with great clarity experienced in the grounds and landscape of Vederi Estate. The flora and horticultural is breathtaking, we also have private gardens with a variety of herbs and spices of Crete. All orchards are to be enjoyed, the organic fruit, vegetables, spices of the Estate.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as advertised, the setting quiet and rural, the house clean, well-appointed, with a lovely garden and swimming pool. The property is close to Rethymno, and an easy drive to its restaurants and tourist district. It's also centrally located in Crete, with major attractions within an hour or so drive. Our host was quick to respond to messages, helpful when needed, but otherwise left us to enjoy the place on our own. Which we did immensely.

Highly Recommended: fabulous villa and wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay here. The villa was beautifully appointed and in a lovely quiet location. The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and was cleaned every few days with fresh towels and bed linen. The village of Prines has a couple of tavernas for when you don't want to venture too far (we loved Gianniko's) and Rethymnon has many fabulous restaurants. A great base to explore the island with George on hand to guide and help whenever needed. Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

"La villa bénéficie de tout le confort souhaitable et est décorée avec soin.

La situation permet de passer des vacances en famille en pleine nature, au milieu des oliviers (réserve naturelle) dans un endroit particulièrement calme et agréable mais à un jet de voiture des commerces et de la vivante et pittoresque ville de Rethymno.

Le propriétaire et sa famille vous réserverons un accueil exceptionnellement chaleureusement et ne manquerons pas de vous faire partager l''amour qu''il porte à leur région.

En conclusion, des vacances inoubliables..."

  • 5 of 5

"Back home after a memorable stay in Vederi villa in Rethymnon. We were first very impressed by the hospitality of George and her mother who cooked us a delicious Moussaka (just perfect service when you arrive very late in the evening). Somehow you feel like in an 5 stars hotel except that you have your total privacy. when we arrive we were welcome by George who did a guided tour of the villa ( place just exceptional with beautiful swimmingpool in a Olives trees forest). During our stay we had the chance to benefit from his garden vegetables and figs. Thanks a lot for all you kindness and hope to come soon again."

The land was passed down through our parents and we always wanted to make the best of a place with unique beauty and tranquility.

Take the national road to Rethymno city (from any airport in Crete). On the main junction to enter Rethymno turn right (south) to Atsipopoulo. When you reach Prines village follow the sign
