What makes this villa unique

the beauty of Rethymno

The accommodation is situated near the city of Rethymno which is one of the best preserved old towns of the Renaissance era in Crete, with a small Venetian harbour and narrow streets. This region boasts rich architectural and cultural heritage including hotspots like the Venetian Loggia, Fortezza, Rimondi Fountain, Neratze mosque and others. The most popular beaches in Rethymno are located on the northern coast. They are fully equipped, offering visitors plenty of facilities including lively beach bars. Beaches on the southern coast are secluded and allow for a serene visit. The nightlife in Rethymno offers something for the needs of every traveller, it has a vast range from large lively pubs and bars inside the old city and around the harbor, to a relaxed and calm atmosphere found in the small bars right on the beach.

The city of Rethymnon has a good access from everywhere (sea, air, land) and it is also well-connected from the port of Souda bay with a ferry to Piraeus all year round. It is served by the local airports of Chania (55 km away) and Heraklion (80 km away) and finally public buses can be used for travelling to the major towns and villages on Crete.

Great stone villa, an ideal combination for summer and winter holidays

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple of 2 and we've booked Villa Katerina for 10 days in August 2016. Vangelis, the villa manager, had already arranged everything and had contacted us quite earlier to ensure that our holidays would be flawless. The villa is located in a small complex of 4-5 villas, outside Rethymnon, which you can reach within 5' driving.

The house can provide you with anything you may need. It has all kinds of electric appliances and is ideal for 4 people, as there are two bedrooms. They are quite large. The main one has a double bed and the other two single beds. In every bedroom there are big wardrobes to keep your clothes and other staff.

In the living room there are two comfy sofas and a small table. There is also a large TV (probably 32") where you may watch local channels and connect a USB stick to watch your own movies. The villa also has a desk and an office chair where you can do some work if necessary or use your laptop and connect to the internet (there is a cellular internet connection to the house).

The house has a big bathroom with a large bathtub and a washing machine to do your laundry if you want.

The best part is the outside, where there are two tables, a smaller round table (I like to call it "table for tea and afternoon coffee") and a larger wooden one where you may enjoy your breakfast and meals next to the pool.

The pool is clean and maintained by Mr Vangelis every 2-3 days and there are 4 sunbeds next to it where you can relax as they have very comfortable cushions on. The house has also a parking space (with an electric door), but a car of a maximum size of a small Peugeot etc can probably fit in there. In case you've got a bigger one, do not worry, you may park it in the back side of the villa.

The manager was very welcome and really eager to help us with anything. From the very beginning of our booking, he was there to respond to our inquiries anytime. He will do his best to ensure that you have the best time there.

In conclusion, we would suggest this house to everybody who would like some peaceful holidays, in a rural environment, but close to a city, too. It is ideal for parties of 2-4 or a family with children and also for elderly people as there are no stairs (unless you may want to go to the terrace and have a better view of the environment and the sea). Is is certain you will want to come again in the future!

Belle villa

  • 4 of 5

Belle villa avec piscine bien située pour visiter l'ouest de la Crête. Proche de la jolie ville de Réthymnon (commerces, marchés, ...). Trés bel accueil et disponibilité durant le séjour. Le chien des voisins un peu bruyant !!!
