A beautiful villa situated in an olive grove next to the sandy beach of Episkopi Rethymno.
Episkopi is a nice picturesque village around 15km away from the city of Rethymnon. It is built over the biggest beach in Crete; the beach of Petres-Episkopi. The beach is sandy and around 15km long.
Just a couple of minutes walk from the beach there is a olive-tree field and our house is built in there. Actually it is a small farm. There are the olive trees, sheep and goats, chicken, cats, tortoises. There is also a vegetable garden planted and you can use the vegetables for your meals, or ask us to prepare your meals for you. You can also use the barbeque grill and the stone oven which are in the garden.
The house is newbuilt having all the facilities needed, such as solar panels, air-condition, fully equiped kitchen and washing mashine and bed linen and towels. It has an very big balcony lookin at the sea and the sunset and a garden around with a playground for children to play. The place is very quiet, ideal for families and people who want to avoid the city buzz.
There are some nice restaurants around to eat but you should use a car if you want to reach the supermarket and other shops who are 2km away from the house (the house is not in the village, it's next to the beach). In the village you can also find a drugstore, gas station, buchers, a grocery store, some more restaurants and small cafes.
You should definitely visit ancient town of Lappa. The town was active since the Geometric period, but it flourished mostly during the Hellenistic and Roman periods, as it is evidenced by its coins.Excavations at the area are still going on and interesting finds as two statues of marble are displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Rethymnon. There are also some nice waterfalls there. Near the house there is the village of Kournas where there is the only natural lake in Crete. The place is breathtaking.
Rethymno is the closest big city, but the house is situated between Rethymno and Chania an other big city around 50 km away (a 40minutes drive).400m away from the house there is a bus stop which connects you with Rethymno and Chania.Of course,if you want to explore the whole island,you should have your own car or rent one.
What makes the place unique is that spend your holiday next to the beach and near a family that knows how to make your stay as plesant as can be.
