This villa is situated on the outskirts of the village of Episkopi, within walking distance of town and a short drive to the longest sandy beach of Crete. Episkopi remains largely untouched by tourism, making this an excellent place for an authentic vacation. Because of its historical significance as the onetime bishopric, you’ll find many Byzantine churches dating back to the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. In town there is a bakery, a pastry shop, a butcher shop, and some small supermarkets. If you prefer eating out, there are taverns and “kafeneia,” or traditional Greek cafes. There is also a post office, bank, pharmacy, medical center, gas and police stations, and a bus station. If you’re looking for more active entertainment, 20 minutes’ drive takes you to the golf course in Hersonissos, and you’re also less than 10 minutes’ drive from Watercity, one of Europe’s largest water parks. You’ll also want to go into Rethymnon to sample Cretan cuisine and to visit the sixteenth century Venetian Fortezza, imposing in itself but also the location of the annual Rethymnon Renaissance Festival. If you’re interested in the history of the island you may also want to step into the Historical and Folk Art Museum for a taste of traditional Cretan ceramics, textiles, artifacts, jewelry, and clothing from across the centuries.
