Location description from owner

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

Maroulas is built on the top of a 240m high hill, 7km from Rethymno, with magnificent views of the surrounding area. It attracts many artists and intellectuals for its exquisite beauty, as the village is fortified with towers, narrow cobbled streets, arches, old doors and architechtural elements remnants of the Byzantine, Venetian and Turkish eras.

Maroulas

Places you can visit:

• Exploration of the entire Rethymnon perfecture, Arkadi Monastery, Archeological Museum, Anogia, Preveli Monastery, Preveli Palm Lake, Kourtaliotiko gorge, Agia Galini, Triopetra, Plakias, Kournas Argyroupoli, Panormo, Ideon Andron Cave and the traditional villages with great story. The rides in the old town of Rethymno will satisfy the most demanding. Rethymno by night with their frenetic pace and fun will make your stay memorable.

• Day trips to neighboring prefectures of Chania (67 km) and Heraklion (87 km).

How to reach the villa:
You can reach Crete by boat (Chania, Rethymnon, Heraklion) or by air (Chania, Heraklion). To reach the villa Castle of Maroulas, you will take the highway Rethymnon-Heraklion and about 3 km after Rethymno (to Heraklion), you need to take the road to Arkadi.
