Eco Cottage Vedere is an old stone-built Venetian house that has belonged to our family for over 200 years. It is located in Vederoi, a small Venetian village.
It is 8 km away from Rethymnon so it gives you the opportunity to explore the city as well as the countryside.
It is a 192 sq. meter house that has two levels. The ground floor has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a living room, a dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen. A wooden staircase leads you to the upper floor that has a bathroom, dressing area, and a bedroom that opens onto a veranda. There you have a view to the village and can enjoy the sunset.
The house’s grounds consist in an extensive compound: the central courtyard has three additional dining areas and a grill; a side courtyard off the kitchen has yet another dining area, hammock, and a vegetable garden; finally, off there is another area with a swimming pool and two lounge areas (one on an upper lawn) with umbrellas so you can sunbathe to your heart’s content. The property is filled with flowers and potted herbs.
We offer our guests olive oil from our trees, house wine, and raki. We live in the same village 20 m. away from your house so we can help you in any way so that you can have an unforgettable holiday!

Best choice ever
We spent 1 week in this house and we can talk only in superlatives about the place and the hospitality we were surrounded by!!! It's a fully renovated traditional house meeting the highest modern hygenical standards while reserving its original atmosphere and antique details. It's super clean, very quiet and comfortable. In the garden you can chose between different spots to enjoy the swimming pool or a barbecue or just sit and listen to the cicadas. One of the bedrooms has also a large terrace with a beautiful view of the hills.
We appreciated very much the owner's professionalism and kindness (and cooking!) and also the local products she'd filled the fridge before our arrival and gave us after.
For eating out you have 3 nice tavernas within a 5 minute drive.
We highly reccomend this place.
Dear Andras and family
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience of your stay in our house with future guests. It was a pleasure to meet you all.
I hope that we will be able to meet again at the future.
Please give a huge hug to the girls from me.
Luxurious estate in the heart of a small village.
We researched many places to stay in Crete and this one was a perfect choice! The owners have restored and expanded on their family home, making it a truly elegant and comfortable home. The photos do not do it justice -- it is much more spacious than it looks, with over 5 dining areas to choose from. We stayed for a week -- 4 adults and 2 children -- and had enormous amounts of space. It was incredibly quiet, beautifully restored with antiques interspersed with modern amenities. The pool was fantastic for the kids (and adults). The airconditioning was great to have if it got hot too. There is a fresh vegetable garden off the kitchen that we were free to use and pick our own tomatoes. We arrived to a kitchen generously filled with fresh fruit, Cretan specialities, local feta, and anything we could need. And Eleni's husband even cooked lamb for us (and Eleni an eggplant dish) to introduce us to traditional food. We couldn't have been happier and better taken care of. The village is ideal for kids -- shops and all just 10 minutes away by car. It is a very authentic experience, not at all touristy in feeling - and great to be so close to a city (Rethymno) and have a central base from which to explore Crete. All six of us felt like this was our favorite place during our trip to Greece. HIghly recommended. A gem of a place.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience,with future fellow traveler.
I appreciate your kind words, it was a plesure to have you staying in our house.
I hope that I will be able to see you again in the future.
I wish all the best
Eleni and family
