Location description from manager

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.

Arkadi

The village of Amnatos is 17km from the centre of Rethymno and it is the last village on the way to the historical Monastery of Arkadi. The village is built on a rocky and high location having superb views across the valley of Rethymno.

The village was inhabited by the Venetians and the Turks and testify that the imposing buildings - towers of the village that survived until today. Houses Venetian notables (houses benezi), glass chimney style sebastiano serlio, mansions from the 17th and 18th century, imposing towers (the sanguinazzo) beautiful and lovely squares dominate and create a frame of a bygone era.

Due to the location of the village and the terrain in the area, there are many beautiful hiking and biking trails as to the nearby village of Kapsaliana where you can find the Museum of Olive. We will provide you for free 3 mountain bikes and light equipment for hiking (baton). Finally, the location enables visitors to explore the archaeological site of ancient Eleftherna and caves of Melidoni and Zoniana which are some of the most famous tourist destinations in central Crete.

“Want a peaceful holiday in picturesque surroundings..look no further!”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2016

We were met by owners of Villa Dimitra with a glass of raki and nibbles before being shown around the beautifully restored property with spectacular views. It was a very hot week and we were grateful for the vine-covered pergolas shading the garden. The house was cool and air-conditioned bedrooms welcome. The local taverna run by Maria and George was good but if you wanted to eat further afield there were a variety of eateries within an 8-mile radius. Our favourites were Thavma and Knossos. The buzz of Rethymno made a good contrast to the tranquility of the villa. Batteries recharged!
