Detached villa with pool Crete
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Villa Alkistis is located in the scenic area of the village Agia Paraskevi, just 8 km from the historical town of Rethymno (Crete) and 3,5 Km from the village of Platanes, where you can find many taverns, shops, bars, super markets e.t.c.
Idyllically positioned in a peaceful full of trees hill, Alkistis is a new building villa surrounded of olive groves and wild plants. It’s a lovely family house, about 110 sqm, with a private swimming pool and it is suitable for 6-8 persons.
With its relaxed welcoming atmosphere, villa has been build and furnished to a comfortably high standard on two floors and offers fantastic views over the villages, the hills and the nearby sea.
On the ground floor there is the living area with fireplace, TV., dining table- chairs and with pretty sofas (one can be used as double bed, where two more persons can sleep). There is also a full-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, fridge and oven and there is one wide bedroom with double bed too. In the bathroom of this floor you will also find a douse cabin and the washing machine. The living room and the kitchen have doors leading to the veranda near the swimming pool, where you will enjoy your swimming, the sun and the full of stars evenings.
We will go up to the stairs to the first floor, where you will find two bedrooms with two beds in each of them and a pretty bathroom. Two doors lead to an excellent veranda with a panoramic view to the sea and the mountains.
You will walk into this property and you will see the barbeque and the swimming pool with the surrounding garden. We must say that the two verandas are equipped with comfortable wooden garden- furniture, but you will also find sun beds and sun umbrellas into the grass- garden which surrounds the house. The short stone walls around the villa gives the sense of seclusion and privacy to all guests.

The Crete region
Crete is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands and the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece; while it retains its own local cultural traits (such as its own dialect, poetry, and music). Crete was the centre of the Minoan civilization (circa 2700–1420 BC), the first civilization in Europe and the first European country with a palace (at Knossos).
Crete is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Greece. Today, the island's tourism infrastructure caters to all tastes, including a very wide range of accommodation. Popular tourist attractions include the archaeological sites of the Minoan civilisation, the Venetian old city and port of Rethymnon and Chania, the Venetian castle at Rethymno, the gorge of Samaria, the islands of Chrysi, Elafonisi, Gramvousa, and Spinalonga.
Villa Alkistis abstains 3,5 km from village Platanes, where you can find many shops, bars and traditional restaurants.
The visit to the medieval village Maroulas, 2,5 km distance from the villa, and to the historical monastery of Arcadi, 14 km distance from the villa, will offer you unforgettable experience except the wonderful ride.
You can also include to your near tours the villages Aghia Paraskevi and Adele, abstaining from the villa 400 m and 800 m.
Alkistis abstains 8,5 km from Rethymno, a town which successfully combines the old and the new. A walk to the old town makes you never forget the Venetian port, the famous castle – Fortezza -, the Turkish minarets, the lanes and the traditional buildings.
During the Regeneration Festival you have also the opportunity to watch concerts and qualitative performances.
Rethymno awaits you with clear blue seas and Mount Psiloritis, there are traces of a civilisation that dates back 4,500 years, numerous Byzantine churches and monasteries, enchanting Venetian monuments, the most well-preserved Renaissance city in Greece, with endless beaches, caves, gorges and unique flora and fauna. Rethymno and its villages are live postcards, which are pervaded by the aroma of Cretan cuisine and the sound of the Cretan lyre. People live here amid nature and emotions, outside the code of behaviour found in big cities. No matter where you go, be it even to the most isolated village, our people will open their doors to you to treat you to a "tsikoudia" and befriend you. Rethymno is the homeland of Zeus, the god of Hospitality. The great number of visitors who return repeatedly confirms the words of the poet: ”Rethymno is not a place where you go to, but a place where you return.”
