The Rethymnon Prefecture region
Crete the birthplace of Zeus, has been a center of civilization of Europe in Minoan times. Today's archaeological treasures of the Minos palace at Knossos, history and myth, amazing combination of mountains, remarkable gorges, beeches with clear waters, Cretan cuisine and its people make Crete an unforgettable choice for holidays.
Rethymno the picturesque nearby town, is surrounded by hills and mountains as it is falling gently into the Aegean Sea. It has a 11 km long sandy beach on east side, the historical town centre in the middle, and its rocky end on the other end, which offers an amazing view of the town itself and of its Venetian Castle. From this west side you enjoy miraculous sunsets over the sea! Renaissance monuments and mosques from the Turkish occupation call upon the visitor to look into Rethymno's long history. There are many old, small, friendly and lively streets to stroll along whilst shopping for local products, jewellery, icons and souvenirs.

"A definite jewel! Spacious, private with stunning views yet close to sea & mountains"
This villa truly lived up to expectations but the biggest asset is the owner who went to great lengths to ensure we had everything we needed. We arrived after midnight and Giorgos kept in touch from the moment we landed to help us locate the villa, and was there to welcome us, despite the late hour. As my husband has health problems we did not stop to eat so Giorgos surprised us with an evening meal. - mousaka ! The fridge was also well stocked with more than the usual essentials, including chilled beers & soft drinks, plus more fruit than we could possibly eat! The villa is spacious and equipped with everything you might need. It was beautifully cleaned for our arrival and Maria visits most days and keeps the pool and patios clean and tidy and towels refreshed. The pool is large and deep and is great to have a proper swim. The views are stunning- sea and mountains as well as the olive trees and garden belonging to the villa. In the mornings and evenings swallows come by and there are also an array of beautiful butterflies. The location was ideal for us, private yet near to local amenities and just a short drive to the city, harbour or beach. Importantly to us, the wifi was excellent We run a business and need to keep in touch, even on holiday so good communication can reduce significant stress. Our student son also found it invaluable for work and pleasure, enabling him to be 'connected' to friends. It is so good to know that you have someone on hand to offer advice when you visit a country for the first time and Giorgos was there for as much, or as little as you needed. We totally enjoyed our visit - only downside? Why oh why didn't we book for a longer stay
Dear Anne, Gil & Ben, Thank you so much for your nice words and for being such wonderful guests. From my point of view I just wanted to make sure that you felt welcome and at home - being your first time in Crete. The little time we spent together is something for me to remember. Already looking forward to seeing you again in the near future. Do take care of yourselves, and carry on thinking positive. Be well, Giorgos

"The Photos cannot do it justice."
Perched atop a charming little town, this beautiful home has amazing views of the stunning mountains of Crete from all angles. From the moment you drive into the property you'll realize that you've found your dream vacation home. Beautiful gardens surround you as you enter the mansion. Inside the home, it just gets better and better! We were greeted with a fully equipped kitchen complete with fresh olive oil, wine to sample, and a refrigerator full of fresh fruit. Several large dining areas both inside and out, gave our group of 8 plenty of options for our giant meals. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable. The pool area was sparkling and huge. Loungers and umbrellas were plentiful and there were many days that we just wanted to stay put. The owner was always available if we needed anything at all but, really, we had everything and more. I can't say enough about this home. Plenty of shops nearby, a 10 minute drive to your choice of beaches, and an amazing landlord making sure you enjoyed your vacation in the lap of luxury. We cannot wait to go back to Crete and the beauty that is the Rithymna Mansion.
Dear Karen, I cannot express in writing my gratitude for your lovely words. A big "thanks" with all my heart will have to do in these few lines. I'm very much looking forward to seeing you again next year and spending some more time together. I wish only the very best for you and your family, and not to forget of course your friends :-) Until we meet again then, take care, Giorgos

"Traumurlaub in einem Traumhaus!"
Es ist alles so, wie es auf den Bildern aussieht: traumhaft! Dieses Haus ist nicht nur ein Haus, sondern ein Heim. Es fehlt an Nichts und die Betreuung durch den Vermieter Giorgos ist außergewöhnlich. Der Kühlschrank ist gefüllt mit Früchten und Getränken - wir haben das so bisher noch nie erlebt!! Das Haus, der üppig bepflanzte Garten und der Pool - alles top gepflegt. Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit und würden, nein wir werden wiederkommen! Giorgos: wir wünschen Dir ein ausgebuchtes Haus - du hast es verdient!!!
Dear Birgit & Oliver, family & friends, It was a true pleasure for me to spend some time with you and getting to know a little bit each other. Thank you for being so relaxed and for taking such excellent care of the villa. I'm already looking forward to seeing you again next year. May your wonderful wish come true. Lot's of love, Giorgos

In July 2014 had a wonderful holiday at the villa Rithymna mansion. A comfortable house with wonderful views of the sea and mountains, located not far from a very nice beach and tavernas. The house is very comfortable layout to stay a big company and equipped with all necessary for living things. Relaxing, we felt the Cretan lifestyle and hospitality. Thank you, Giorgos !
Dear Arina & Sergei, It was an honor to meet you and your family. I hope i always have such excellent guests, taking such good care of the house, being relaxed, and enjoying their holidays. I think you felt a bit like home. I really hope to see you again in the future. Until then, many greetings from Rethymno, Giorgos.

"Wonderful holiday, fantastic villa"
We have just returned from a week in the villa and had a fantastic time. The villa was spotless on arrival and the fridge was stocked with fruit, wine, beer and water. Giorgos was an excellent host and could not do enough for us both before and during our stay. The pictures do not do the villa justice and the view is breathtaking. It was great to return after a day out for a swim in the pool to cool off. The beaches in the south are best for snorkelling and the local taverna is a 5 minute walk away. The service can be a little slow but the owner, Yannis, is constantly on the go and we did not mind waiting. The food is excellent and good value. One minor gripe was that on arrival we could not easily locate the road to the villa from the main road as there is no sign for the villa despite the directions advising to look for it. You just need to turn right at the first crossroad sign when entering Prines and drive down a slope which does not look like it leads anywhere. If we return to this part of Crete we would have no hesitation in returning to this villa. Thanks Giorgos and give Bella a stroke from us all.
Dear Anne & Julie, Thank you for your kind words and for being such excellent guests, leaving the villa as clean as you had found it, and that i think it's an understatement. You are right about the the photos and the directions to the villa, both must be updated as soon as possible. I look forward to seeing you again in the near future. With my best regards to the rest of the family, Giorgos

Si vous souhaitez un séjour agréable et tranquille au milieu des oliviers, avec une vue magnifique sur la mer et les montagnes, des couchers de soleils magiques, une maison parfaitement entretenue et très bien agencée (détails plus que soignés), un ascenseur et des chambres climatisées parfaitement équipées, une piscine de 20 mètres de long à 30° qui rafraîchit à toute heure, ne cherchez plus, réservez pour cette magnifique villa !
