Property information

**Villa Eleftherna has been distinguished with the 2024 Tourism Awards Bronze for Traditional Villa of the Year** Villa Eleftherna is a superb rural hideaway, set in an area of magnificent natural beauty, located in the homonym picturesque village of Rethymno. Nestling on a quiet lane in the village, Villa Eleftherna is more than a country cottage or a holiday villa. Built on the highest spot of the village, it offers breathtaking views on the Cretan Sea, Mountain Psiloritis,and the whole area. Private but not remote, Villa Eleftherna is next to the village square, where you can find traditional taverns, cafes and a mini-market. The 190 m2, two-storey villa is stone-built in a traditional style and can accommodate 8 people in its 4 bedrooms and up to 10 if necessary. The Villa is decorated in a romantic, countryside style and classically furnished with wooden furniture and ceilings. Unique benefits of our villa: - The villa is built on a hill just outside of the village Eleftherna offering 100% privacy and amazing views! - It is just a “stones throw” away from one of the most historical areas in Crete, the archaeological site of Ancient Eleftherna.  - According to our previous guests (you can read the reviews), the villa has a perfect layout and  is equipped with everything you can imagine!  - Fenced and safe garden park for children!  - Swimming pool that can be isolated from young children. - You will love to relax under the natural tree shade! - Quiet and away from it all! - Traditional tavern and mini market just a few meters away! - Free bicycles and light hiking equipment. - If you enjoy country walks, my father who is an experienced member of Rethymno's climbing club would love to guide you or take you with him on organised excursions for free! - Finally you will realise what Cretan hospitality means on meeting my family and locals who live in the village nearby!
