Platanias, Rethymnon, Rethymnon Prefecture, Crete
Lily’s cottage features two cozy double bedrooms with very comfortable bedding and fine quality linens. In between the bedrooms is a stylish bathroom with a shower cabin. A sliding door in the hallway separates the sleeping quarters from the living room and kitchen area to ensure quiet and privacy.
Mix and match furniture with ethnic tones and a modern fireplace give the spacious living room a homey feeling.

Interaction with guests
My guests will feel unique as during their stay a huge consideration is given to their comfort. I'm available 24/7 for them and they can easily communicate with me via cell phone or the free applications whats up and viber. But if they prefer their privacy, of course they will have it as I live in the town and the closest house is about 300 meters away with no visibility at the cottage. My guests will also try some Greek traditional homemade dishes such as spanakopita (spinach pie) or mussaka, gemista (stuffed vegetables) etc.

About the neighborhood
The nearest sandy beach is only 1 km away.
The area is particularly suitable for guests interested in hiking. Just outside the property there is a path leading to “Maroulas”, a traditional village with Venetian color and about 5 km inland is the picturesque , green gorge of Mili with the abandoned village located by the torrent.
At a distance of about 16 km lies the historic Arkadi monastery a monument of self-sacrifice in 1866 during the fight for liberation from the ottoman occupancy.
Getting around
A car is recommended but close to the cottage (about 15 min on foot) there is a bus stop with more than 10 daily services.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Chania or Heraklion : 48.5 mi
Ferry: Rethymnon : 3.7 mi
No matter which airport you' ll choose ( Chania or Heraklion), you'll find the cottage easily. You'll take the highway (direction to Rethymnon) until you meet the exit to Platanias (it's 4 km east of Rethymnon). I could meet you there and take you to the villa which is 2 minutes from there by car.
