Cocooned on a quiet lane in the village of Eleftherna, the superb Villa Eleftherna is a rural hideaway, stone-built in traditional style. Set in an area of magnificent natural beauty, surrounded by gardens of pretty flowering shrubs and fruit trees, it 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 villa indoors contains two floors, it has 4 bedrooms and can accommodate 8 people in beds. In addition there is a sofa beds in the living room area and we can provide extra portable beds and can accommodate maximum 10 people in total.

In the ground floor there is an open plan area where you will find the living room, the dinning area and a fully equipped kitchen. From the living room and the kitchen there is access to the veranda and the pool-garden area. Also in the ground floor there is one bedroom with double bed and one with two single beds. Finally there is a full bathroom with bath between the two bedrooms.

In the first floor there are the main bedroom with double bed, the main bathroom with the jacuzzi and one more bedroom with two single beds. Also from the first floor you will have access to the enormous veranda which offers panoramic views till the sea!

Outdoors there is a fenced area which contains the 40 square swimming pool, the garden park under the tree, the barbecue area, one veranda with a seating area and many flower gardens!

Activities: The convenient location of Villa Eleftherna allows easy access to the sights of the island and offers the opportunity to various activities; relaxing walks in the countryside, hiking, mountain biking or climbing trips can be easily organised. We offer 4 mountain bikes and light hiking equipment (batons) at your disposal for free.

Unique benefits of our villa :

- The villa is build on a hill just outside of the village Eleftherna 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 Ancient Eleftherna.

- 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!

- Swimming pool that can be isolated from young children.

- You will love to relax under the tree shadow!

- Quiet and away from it all!

- Traditional tavern and mini market just a few meters away!

- Free bicycles and light hiking equipment.

- If you like walking in the nature, my father who is an experienced member of climbing club in Rethymno would love to guide you or take you with him in organised excursions for free!

- Finally you will realize what Cretan hospitality means by my family and locals who live in the village nearby!

Villa Eleftherna Location:

Villa Eleftherna is located in central Crete which gives you the advantage to combine mountain and sea.. Make a tour to the villages around or visit some of the most well known beaches. If you stay in our villa you have to visit Ancient Eleftherna (which is a stone-throw away from the villa).

Ancient Eleftherna is the most interesting archaeological site to visit in the province. The city of Eleftherna was built on a fortified hillock, surrounded by two rivers. We can view its ruins from either 'Ancient Eleftherna' village or from 'Eleftherna' village. The museum and the archaeological site will be ready for visitors in summer 2014, although you can make a walk around and visit the ancient city from a small distance away. We will love to make you a small tour around for free !!

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Holidaying in Crete and renting a Crete villa or apartment are a great and unique way to see the largest and most southern of the Greek islands. The island has an enormous wealth of myths, legends and historical sites. There is also incredibly natural beauty on the island, with the stunning mountain ranges running from one end all the way to the other, breaking only for the fertile plateaus of Lasithi, Omalos and Nidha. The landscape is also dotted with caves and gorges, like the famous Gorge of Samaria, the home of the kri-kri, which can now only be found on Crete.
