Overview
Villa -
3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 9
Rethymnon, Rethymnon Prefecture, Crete
Eleni’s Stately Home has been built with great care on the family’s home grounds. It is a destination which combines the class of a renovated mansion and the dreamy environment of the village.

This summer turn away from the busy touristy places in exchange for a quiet retreat, where you will have a chance to meet with the locals, who still live their traditional lives. Stress of daily life, traffic and tension are instantly replaced by serenity and a pace that will send you back in time to a forgotten life revolving around relaxation. Here, you’ll have a unique experience that enriches body and soul. Gaze upon the wide horizon, breath the fresh country air perfumed with the scent of wild growing herbs and relax among colours and perfumes…

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We chose Eleni's because we wanted a charming historic villa in a quiet spot not too far from the coast and not too far from Rethymnon or Chania. And we got exactly what we were after and a whole lot more too. Valia (it was her grandmother's home) could not have done more to make our stay fantastic - daily...

Additional amenities & feature info
The ground floor of the villa is L-shaped. We enter the villa from the fully equipped open plan kitchen with the adjacent dining area and living area with its open fireplace.

Opposite the beds, along line with the wardrobe, is a door that leads to the other bedroom which again has its own bathroom and a door that leads to the courtyard.

Both bathrooms consist of shower, sink and toilet.From the courtyard, next to the door that leads to the kitchen of the ground floor, is an external stone-buil... more
