The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Crete is the largest island of Greece and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean. Being one of the most beautiful Greek islands, many locals believe there is no other place on earth like Crete. In fact, after visiting the island, many people share the same opinion. Crete, is a place full of diversity, going from glorious beaches and fertile valleys to impressive mountainscapes and steep gorges and from busy metropolitan cities to very peaceful hillside villages. It is a quite distinct place full of vitality, warmth, hospitality and culture and owes most of these attributes to its people. The visitor can admire the remnants of brilliant civilizations that once thrived on the island and become part of the island's rich gastronomic culture. Crete's temperate climate makes it an ideal holiday destination all around the year, whilst providing a multitude of cultural, social, culinary & sports activities that will satisfy a very wide range of needs and desires. We are going to be very pleased to assist you in fulfilling your expectations from your visit to our beautiful island!

Viran Episkopi

Rethymno is located in the northern part of Crete, approximately in the middle of the island between Chania & Heraklion, making it an ideal base of explorations. Rethymno combines the conveniences of a large modern city with the beauty of a well preserved charming old town including the castle "Fortezza" and Venetian port built during the Venetian occupation of the island. Throughout the summer there is a wide variety of interesting cultural activities & happenings, some of them even taking place inside the premises of our castle. The prefecture of Rethymno features some of the most beautiful beaches on the island, spanning across both its northern and southern coastline. Much of the rural inland still follows the same way of life for decades, providing the visitor a genuine look into the Cretan tradition and lifestyle.

"Perfect vacation location and hospitality"

We are a family of seven (children from 11-20).
Villa Elena situated at a perfect location: a stand alone villa outside of a small peacefully viran episkopi village five minutes from several nice beaches and very close to a friendly supermarket with everything we needed (including fresh meat). The location allow traveling to any direction and to pass to the southern coast in less then an hour.
The villa itself has everything a family need including a fully (!!!) equipt kitchen washing machine a BBQ and swimming pool and a large space around the villa.
most importantly the paterakis family are very welcoming and full with advices. We received a welcoming meal that was cooked by Maria in the outside oven and was perfect!
We feel that we have found new friends in crete. We enjoyed our seven days and recommend the villa to all our friends. Thanks.
