Location description from manager

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Rethymno, with its clear blue seas and endless beaches, Mount Psiloritis, several caves, gorges and unique flora and fauna, awaits to offer you a unique holiday experience! There is such a big variety of landscapes and beautiful locations to visit that one is never bored. The mild Mediterranean climate, together with the popular Cretan diet gives visitors the chance of healthy living and exploring. Rethymno and its villages are live postcards, pervaded by the aroma of Cretan cuisine and the sound of the Cretan lyre. People here live amidst nature and emotions, outside the city's code of behaviour. No matter where you go, even to the most isolated village, people will open their home doors, invite you in and treat you to a “raki”!

Amari

Villa Zinovia is located in the settlement Mesonisia. The settlement was named so because it is in the middle of the island, at the north - south highway.
