Our Villa Cornelia is located in a fantastic valley, which is often explored by tourists by trolley, bicycle or jeep. The three apartments are well equipped and air conditioned. Only three of the four apartments are offered for rent. So if you book all three apartments, it may well be that you have the whole house to yourself, because unfortunately we are very rare there. Just pack up your bathing suit and go shopping in the harbor and boutique town of Rethymno, 15 minutes from the house. The beach or the bay of Costa can be reached in 5 minutes by car. The location is especially known for its good climate. Although close to tourism, you will not find much of it here in the valley, nestled among the olive groves. We are located 900 meters from the village of Asteri. To be on the safe side, we'll gladly send you directions to our villa so you know exactly how to get there from Heraklion or Chania airport.
Transport: To the highway Chania - Rethymno - Heraklion it is 2 km, to the airport Heraklion about 55 minutes, to the airport Chania about 1 hour and 10 minutes and to the ferry port Rethymno about 15 minutes. There is a bus service to Rethymno, there are cafes, taverns and various cultural facilities. The village of Asteri for small purchases is 900 meters away. The big supermarkets are 5 minutes and a Lidl market is 10 minutes away.
