Spend your time in many interesting ways!You can choose from a number of activities, due to the options the location of the villa and the village offers.Enjoy the sun and the sea at a nearby beach such as the Pigianos Kampos beach (2km) or the Skaleta beach (2km)Explore the Cretan countryside walking or cycling on the rural roads of Mesi and the nearby villages.

Rethymnon

Except for the benefits and the facilities of the house, our guests have the chance to experience some parts of the real traditional cretan life.

You can buy bread and milk from the baker and the milkman that cross the village to sell their products. Almost every day, you will have fresh eggs from the hens of the neighbour.

You will have the chance to try many local delicious dishes (and see how they are prepared, too)

Furthermore, close to the village, there is a historic place of paramount importance, the "Arkadi" monastery; a world heritage site protected by UNESCO, a place related with one of the most significant events in the Greek History that is definitely worth visiting.
