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 pool is open until the end of September
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.

The house is beautiful exactly as in the pictures and high quality. Everyrhing is taken care of. A perfect stay for a bigger group of people. The view from the really large terrace is spectacular.
A hidden gem! We were enchanted by this well-looked-after villa for its warmth and history; it is not just a commercialised holiday home. It did feel like the home-away-from-home, and everyone settled in straight away. We liked that it is tucked away in a quite local village on the hillside, which was tranquil and cooler than the towns on the coastline. The location is great with easy access to Ep... more
