Why Elia chose Rethimno
Villa Afroditi is located in a privileged area just 1.5 km far from the beach, the nearest shops, mini markets, taverns, pharmacy etc. and 20min far from Rethymno town. The villa has got a beautiful natural and geographical position so that you can visit the eastern and western Crete easily (about 1 hour by car). You could combine your stay with a visit to the closest historical monasteries, Arsani and Arkadi, which are open to the public, archaeological sites (Eleftherna), the nearest picturesque villages (Loutra, Adele, Pigi, Maroulas, Arkadi, Margarites etc) and the town of Rethymno (10km far) with its historic fortress, Archaeological Museum, Old Town and the longest beach in Crete (18 km in length) covering very short distances.

Relaxing rest and hospitable owners!
We easily found the location , the family was waiting for us. Elia's mum had prepared for us homemade food and we were offered fruits and sweets. We were reallt pleased by the garden. It is full of trees and flowers, spacious and well-cared by the family's dad. The village is indeed very quiet (very few cars pass by) and we really enjoyed our drink in the evening sitting outside by the pool.
Our holidays were exceptional there and the owners were great too!
