Villa Rodanthi was built for one purpose: to silence your mind and push away the clouds of everyday routine. Just give in. You need it, you have worked for it, you deserve it and you know it.
Villa Rodanthi was originally built in 1919 but it was fully renovated in 2013. It is made entirely of stone and wood and decorated with old traditional tools, implements and utensils (sieve, iron, manual sewing machine, old radio tubes, the ironwork of the doors and windows, jars of oil), while at the same time it features all modern amenities, harmoniously combining the old and the new.
Follow the paved entry. A stone staircase leads you to a spacious courtyard surrounded by a garden with a stone fountain in the middle and to the main entrance of the house. The villa opens to a large living room with a fireplace, a library and a dining room. Further inside and under the stone arch, you will find a fully equipped kitchen. Villa Rodanthi has four separate bedrooms, Aretousa (detached), Aegean, Erato and Renaissance, each with its very own unique personality and energy.
On the 100 sq. m. terrace of the villa there is an oven, a barbecue, a garden with lawn, a large swimming pool (40 sq. m.) part of which is covered from the sun. The view is spectacular since the guest house is located at the top of the hill. Wooden and metal tables, arm chairs, loungers and sun umbrellas are placed in the courtyards.
The villa is located at the village of Kastellos in Apokoronas, Chania. Kastellos is a picturesque, traditional mountainous village north of the White Mountains, built on the hill of Kastelli, two hundred and ten (210) meters above sea level, 5 km from the beach, 46 km from the City of Chania and 25 km from the City of Rethymno. Due to its elevated position the village has panoramic views of the mountains and the sea of Georgioupolis and Kavros.
The privileged location of the villa makes it an ideal starting point for day trips. You can visit the famous Kournas Lake just 5km from the village. They say it is bottomless! There, you will also find some excellent traditional tavernas.
The beach of Georgioupolis, a pole of attraction for thousands of visitors every year, is only 5 km away. It is safe and well organized.
If you love adventure, a hike at the hills will pay the time and sweat back many times over.

We had a wonderful stay at the villa and would recommend it as a great holiday destination. I can say without doubt that this was one of our best family holidays and will come home with happy memories of our adventures here. The service we received, and communication was excellent. Thank you for your lovely hospitality.
The villa was charming and had the most amazing views and sunset from the terrasse. We were a bit tight with the sleeping arrangements as we were 11 adults but other than that it was great. We had a lovely time, thank you very much for hosting us!
Excellent communication and a lovely home.
Beautiful house with private pool in a quiet town. Close to the main road and the beach. The best: the BBQ, swimming pool and the "refreshing wind" in summer on the roof.
