It was wonderful experience staying in Roupes villas! We have rented all 4 villas for our group travel. So we came 20 ladies there and all of us were amazed by beauty of villas, environment, panorama view - which is totally beautiful and amazing, it was so calm and quite there, everywhere so green and clean! All ladies where telling - it looks much more better than in photos! This is amazing feeling when you get more then you expected! Special thanks for such careful owners, who were also taking care of us a lot before our stay and during it! Big Big thanks for manager Alexia - she were communicating with me all the time before we came and helping us a lot with all 20 ladies wishes and asks, she helped us a lot by organising our catering, our free time, our trips in Crete and etc. She is great and really helpful manager! Many thanks for local family taverna, for such a tasty food! Maria was bringing for us home made food from local family taverna twice a day for all ladies, also she brought (once I asked) 4 totally giant watermelons!!! The owner of taverna and Maria (him daughter) organised for us last dinner in the garden - brought big table and chairs for all ladies, Maria created a decor of the table and made just beautiful table with great food on it (from taverna) and also - home made wine! Also Maria (lady from family taverna) is doing totally amazing massages! She was coming to us with all equipment everyday and relaxing us with her wonderful hands! Giant thanks for so kind cleaning lady - our home always were clean, fresh and well cared! She was doing just great job! No complaints, all experience in Roupes villas were just perfect! Definitely we are coming back soon there with another group of ladies!!! If to tell a little bit about villas interior and exterior - all was totally beautiful and stylish and we liked it a lot! The garden and pool environment was exactly what we wanted for our free time! Ladies every morning were waking up earlier to have a morning swim before lessons and they just loved it! When our stay was going to the end - all ladies where telling that we had not enough time to enjoy all the facilities we found there! Thank you again for all of you who made our stay there just wonderful and see you again very soon! Best Regards for all your team from Vaida and her team!

Wunderschönes, ruhig gelegenes Anwesen

  • 5 of 5

Unser 11-tägiger Aufenthalt in den Roupes Villas war absolut großartig. Das Haus und der Außenbereich mit Pool und Badeteich ist sensationell schön. Alles ist modern eingerichtet und sauber. Die Lage in den Bergen ist super ruhig und entspannend. Mit aktuellen Navi ist auch die Route kein Problem, am Ende ist es auch ausgeschildert, Mietwagen ist aber Pflicht. Was auch sehr positiv war ist die Gastfreundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft der Betreiber. Diese sind immer erreichbar und helfen stets schnell und freundlich. Das hat uns wirklich beeindruckt, an dieser Stelle nochmal ein großes Dankeschön. Wir werden bestimmt nochmal wiederkommen, weil uns auch die Insel ans Herz gewachsen ist. Wir haben hier definitiv unseren bisher schönsten Urlaub erlebt. :)

Villa très belles prestations

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette villa confortable, très bien équipée, et aux prestations de qualité !! Les photos sont réellement conformes à la villa. La vue est très dégagée : mer au loin et champs d'oliviers à perte de vue. L 'endroit est très calme, idéal pour une semaine de repos ... De plus, nous tenons à remercier Alexia et les propriétaires qui nous ont attendu le soir de notre arrivée et pour leurs attentions tout au long du séjour !! Nous penserons à eux lors de notre prochaine excursion crétoise... Famille H.

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 discover 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 Ideon 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 golden 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.
