Why Alexia Lioni chose Rethymno

Roupes Villas is a brand new complex of detached family friendly villas. Each villa has its own private grounds, pool and parking area and each villa is secluded from the next. BBQ facilities are available and the spacious outdoor area and furniture allow you to enjoy outdoor dining, or just relax by the pool whilst your kids play nearby. This complex allows you to relax in the privacy of your own space and at the same time provides you added security. Perfectly situated at the foot of Crete’s highest mountain range Psiloritis, 240 meters above sea level, each villa offers stunning panoramic views of Crete’s northern coastline and breathtaking views of the landscape. Ideally located in the centre of the island, these villas serve as a perfect base from which the main attractions Crete has to offer can easily be reached. Rethymno town is easy to reach, being only 18km from Roupes. It is about a 15 minute drive along the highway to reach the town centre. Here you will find the local hospital, post office, large super markets and lots of shops. The flea market, held on Thursday mornings is usually attractive to tourists. This charming town maintains its aristocratic appearance, with its buildings dating from the 16th century, arched doorways, stone staircases, Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains and small picturesque Venetian harbor. There are numerous museums and an imposing fortress looking over the old town.A Renaissance festival takes place in the fortress grounds every year providing entertainment throughout the summer months. However the old town is where you will find an array of nightlife, from lively little bars and restaurants in the narrow streets to relaxing waterfront cafes.

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cett

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette magnifique villa très propre et très au calme (aucun passage de véhicules) entourée d'oliviers avec une vue splendide sur la mer. Il faut ajouter que l'accueil est exceptionnel nous avons même eu droit à notre arrivée tardive à des produits nous permettant de prendre notre petit déjeuner. Le ménage est effectué tous les 2/3 jours avec changements des draps et du linge de maison. Enfin c'était parfait et conseillons cette location sans problème.

The village of Roupes is situated in a peaceful location south west of Rethymno town. The surrounding area itself has a lot to offer. You can tour the nearby local villages and get a taste of how the Greeks live and experience Greek hospitality. There are hiking and cycling routes in the vicinity, offering you the chance to dicover the Cretan countryside and enjoy the breathtaking views of the imposing mountain range of Psiloritis which stretches from the North West of the island down to the South East. This area is paradise for anyone who loves to explore nature. There are numerous caves nearby. There are the impressive Melidoni and Zoniana caves and the Ideo Andro cave, which was seemingly the birthplace of the Greek God Zeus in accordance to Greek Mythology.

The area is also steeped in history and archaeology. Roupes is only a few kilometers from one of the ten greatest discoveries of the world in the year 2010 by the Archaeology Magazine, Ancient Eleftherna. Here you will find the ruins of the Ancient city and a newly built museum which will display the spectacular artifacts discovered in this area of historical importance. Then there is the Moni Arkadi, an impressive monastery of great heritage to the people of Rethymno.

Ideally situated in the centre of the island, it is easy to reach many of the beautiful beaches Crete has to offer. Only 7km from your villa is Rethymno beach. This white sandy beach stretches a length of 12km from Rethymno town out to the area of Skaleta. This organized beach has been awarded the Blue Flag, certifying its excellent waters. A few kilometers further east you will come across the picturesque beach of Geropotamos, quiet and secluded with crystal clear water. Whether you like a beach that offers water sports or prefer to have a quiet cove entirely to yourself, you will find a beach suitable amongst the many on this island.
