It is ideal for those who love nature, peace and quietness . Standing among Ancient oak forest ,time moves slowly and the “noise” of everyday life is soon forgotten. Perfect retreat away from everything! The villa is like a fairy tale Castle and its decorated with finest designs. Become part of our peaceful household for a while and enjoy the unspoiled atmosphere. Browse through our books and relax in our “Treatment Teracce” or give yourself the change to enjoying wandering around at the garden and use the hammock. We offer a spacious ,clean and comfortable room with good quality towels, bedding and furniture, private bathroom with a huge bathtub and balcony / terrace with breathtaking view. The people of Crete know well how to celebrate life and how to make you feel welcome. Toast with people who make songs out of life and let these songs transport you! Unique benefits of our villa : -The villa is build on a hill just outside of the village Kastellos offering 100% privacy and amazing views! -It is just a 'stone throw' away from one of the most historical areas in Crete, the archaeological site of late Minoan Cemetery Of Armenoi. -Situated only 12km from Rethymnon's beach's and historic town and 20km from the Libian sea with the unspoiled beaches. -According to our past guest (you can read the reviews), the villa has a perfect layout and it is equipped with everything that you can imagine! -Fenced and safe garden park for children! -You will love to relax under the tree shadow! -Quite and away from it all! -Also we will clean the villa and change towels and linen every 4 days! -Traditional tavern , Super market, Pharmacy, Atm just a few meters away! -If you like walking in the nature, you just in the right spot. -Extra activities ( Painting, Sculpture, Ceramic, Bookbinding, Yoga ) -Finally you will realize what Cretan hospitality means by me and locals who live in the village nearby! Guest Access Guests will have access and full privacy to all areas indoor and outdoor! Interaction with Guest We will wait for you in the villa for your arrival (despite the time, even after midnight) in order to help you with the house details and give you as much informations as you want about the area, taverns, shops, places and beaches that you have to visit! Finally we will be there for your departure for our last thank you! George will be also reachable on his cell phone and e-mails 24/7! The Neighborhood Villa Ermis is situated very close to Rethymnon town , half way between both north and south beaches of the island. Inspite being so close to all the main turistic spots it is 2km off the main road leading from Rethymnon to the south beaches, so it is unspoiled by the 'development' the turist mass brings along. The area is very green full of olive, cypress and oak trees and it has breathtaking mountain views. There are also some very good taverns in a few meters to a few km dictance from the house. The village where the house is situated is very small, therefor very piecfull and quiet. The only 'noice' you might listen to is some distant sheep bah and bells, rooster cock-a-doodle-doos, the church bell and the priest singing on Sundays, or some traveling sellers that pass by the village. Transport There is no convenient public transportation in the area (there is a bus line that goes to Rethymnon once daily). We highly recommend if you wish to come and stay with us you hire a car. Crete is the largest island in Greece so you have to explore our unique surroundings House Rules The only rule is to be yourself!! Relax and enjoy the laugh treatment!! George, hope to see you soon.
