Description

Villa Nikolaos is an old farm house built more than 100 years ago.

It was restored by the owners in the beginning of decade '90 with great care and attention to keeping all the traditional elements and with much personal hard work (it was not intended initially for tourist use). It is on the edge of the village, so that no one is disturbed by the presence of residents (besides it is a very quiet small village), at the same time it is still part of the village. The view is exceptional, as it is found in the brow of a steep slope that dominates among the absolute green landscape.

There is a massive exterior space of 1300 sq. meters, a garden with roses and miscellaneous flowers, very large carobs, stone built terraces with a vine and fruit trees and a 32 sq. meters swimming-pool. It is situated in the best spot with amazing view.

Villa Nikolaos is looked after by the owners Katerina (Keti) Zaharioudaki and Vangelis Markakis. They live in Rethymno , where they attend

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.

Rethymnon

Villa Nikolaos is located in the picturesque village of Ancient Eleftherna, in Rethymno Prefecture. The village is located on a high hill, surrounded by the area where the ancient city of Eleftherna was located. It is the main archaeological site of the prefecture. The archaeological site and the newly built museum of Ancient Eleftherna are worth a visit for discovering and feeling the ancient history of the area.

The sea is 15 kilometres away. Nearby (11 km) is found the historical abbey Arkadi, the traditional village Margarites (5 km) with a living tradition in pottery going back 5,000 years and a lot of other small picturesque villages, that still maintain their lively colors and traditional architecture.

“Serenely beautiful, fabulously maintainted, amazing views; perfect for a get-away-from-it-all retreat”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2016

A delightful villa - clean, well equipped and comfortable, in a stunning location. The pool has the most amazing views, and the patio/garden areas provide a variety of wonderful spots to sit and relax/eat while looking out over the gorge. The friendly owner was very willing to help with advice and information and generously took us on a tour of the local archeological sites (the area is steeped in history). The neighbours are also very helpful. The tiny local village is tucked just up from the villa, and has a couple of small tavernas, but we'd recommend the village of Margarites, a ten minute drive away, where we had one of our best meals of the holiday at Mandolos. Eleftherna is a great location for exploring Rethinmo and beyond. The north coast resorts such as Panermo and Bali are an easy drive away, and the south coast can be reached in an hour and a half. Knossos was also an easy day trip. There are loads of more local historic monasteries, caves, and archaealogical sites much closer, as well as a brand new museum of the area, just across the valley.
