Villa Braos is located in the picturesque village of Rodakino -South Crete with view along the valley to the sea. It is an ideal choice for relaxing and pleasant holidays away from the noisy resorts, combining view to the sea and the mountains.<BR>The House,is located at the edge of the village of Rodakino with view along the valley to the sea.<BR>The village of Rodakino at Crete's south coast is a rather quiet place even during main season. There is a super market, a kafenion, a hotel bar, some pensions and a lot ...of nature.<BR>The nearby village of Plakias, in contrast, offers everything Rodakino doesn't: bars, more tavernas, rent cars, shops, doctor and pharmacy. The usual civilisation isn't far away, just in case.<BR>Beaches and Surroundings :The beach road is winding 2km downhill and turns rig... Read more

There aren't many recent reviews of this holiday home and I'm guessing it's because everyone is trying to keep it a secret to ensure they can book their desired dates for next year! In this climate of recession, however, we felt that a glowing review would help continue the survival of such a wonderful holiday destination.
We must apologise in advance for the length of this review but if you wish to stop reading here please take it from us that this is a place that if you love Greece and its islands is truly worth visiting.
My wife and I have been visiting the Greek islands since 1985 and have finally found the one place we would like to return to forever!
The small house is superbly situated at the lower end of the sleepy mountain village of Kato Rodakino in the south of Rethymnon offering superb views over olive groves to the Libyan Sea. This accompanied by the backdrop of the mountains makes it one of the most beautiful locations we have...

About the neighborhood
The village of Rodakino is situated in the south of Crete on the road between Frangokastelo and Plakias.Not much further is "Korakas-beach", a 350 m stretch of beach. The most famous resort of South Crete, the village of Plakias is 12 km away. The distance from Rethymnon town is 39 km, from Heraklion airport 120km, and from Chania airport is 100 km. <BR>There is a bus connection with Rethymnon twice a day. The village is divided into Ano (high) Rodakino and Kato (lower) Rodakino. Both of the villages are quiet and traditional and seem to sleep in their green surroundings. There are a couple of Kafenions here, but not much more. From Kato Rodakino there is a road, about 2 kilometer long, to the beach of Korakas.<BR>The surrounding area is covered with silver-green oli... more

Fly directly to Chania airport (110 kms) or Heraklion airport (120 kms) with a charter flight, or another airline company from whole Europe and the rest of the world, via Athens.<BR>In that case that you will fly to Crete via Athens airport, there are Olympic airways and Aegean airlines flights. Both of the companies are flying to Crete many times per day.<BR>Car is essential and we have a lot of offers from rent a car companies
