Rethymnon, Rethymnon Prefecture, Crete
The villa is situated on the edge of the historic village Kyrianna on what was part of an old olive grove. the village of Kyrianna is only a 10 minute walk up a steep hill or a 1 minute drive away. the village has 2 tavernas, a kafeneo, a butchers and village shops.The views from the villa are stunning as it has sea ,mountain and valley views and behind there are two new small villas one of which is used as a holiday home and one that is a rental home. There is also a villa on the plot next to ours however our villa will still retain it's privacy as the front area of the new villa is a very large garden and the new villa sits at the very back of our site.

Interaction with guests
Unfortunately I will not be in Crete if you need any help or guidance but I am always only a call or text away. There is also a file in the villa that should help answer lots of questions along with some guide books for Crete. I will provide you with the number of our friend in Crete in case of an emergency.

This is a very well equipped house, providing a holiday location literally off the beaten track, allowing you to experience the real Crete. The pool is well maintained and although being at the front of the property, it is incredibly private. We saw the local farmer drive past once each day and no-one else! A hire car is a real...

About the neighborhood
The charming village of Kyrianna is located on the north coast of Crete, approx. 15 km from the town of Rethymno and on the road to the Arkadi Monastery. In the centre of the village of Kirianna is the Byzantine church of the Panagia. The church has a large dome supported at the intersection of the aisles forming the cross. In front of the church there is a bell tower with three arches, unique in its beauty and detailed craftsmanship. In the church there is a piece of marble decorated with reliefs showing the life of Christ and the Saints.
