Villa Astra is a detached and fully air-conditioned vacation property with a private swimming pool and amazing sea views. It stands on the upper edge of the hillside, close to the entry of the terraced property. Stairs lead from the parking down to the level of the middle floor. It consists in 2 separate apartments, each with its own fully equipped kitchen and its own living room, so two families or a group of friends can spend holidays together and still find their own privacy when they want. It is a very comfortable, cozy and very well equipped holiday home on a slope nearby Maroulas above the bay of Rethymnon on the island of Crete.
Maroulas is a picturesque medieval village and it still features two watchtowers from the times of the Venetians. It is set above the bay of Rethymnon and the surroundings are very peaceful and include many groves of olive and fruit trees. When continuing the road further up, the first houses of the old village center appear after 150 meters, there are three little tavernas and a few local shops. The first taverna is Taverna Katerina (150m) and enjoys marvellous views of the coast and the Aegean Sea.The village is very peaceful but at the same time, it is just a few minutes away by car from the town of Rethymnon, and only 3km from some of the most outstanding beaches in the area. The Platanias Beach Resort and Adelianos Campos provide watersport facilities, supermarkets, shops and restaurants. The National Road from Heraklion to Rethymnon (10 kms) and further on to Chania (67 kms) runs down there as well.
