One of Crete’s most appealing features is stone arches, found both indoors and outdoors. Also, stone or wooden staircases and attic-like spaces with wooden ceilings on upper floors (the locals call it “odas”). All of these features, coupled with modern day equipment for your convenience, set the scene for the most peaceful and aristocratic holidays you could ever have.
Villa Achlades is ideal for couples, groups of friends and families alike. It can comfortably sleep up to nine people. A spacious living room with an open fireplace, a fully fitted kitchen, a comfortable dining and seating area designed in an open plan style, a spacious double bedroom with twin beds and stunning views of the pool and garden, as well as a modern fitted bathroom with shower.
Upstairs there's a second twin-bedded room, another good sized double bedroom and a luxurious bathroom with a Jacuzzi bathtub . A further single-bedded room is located one floor higher in a attic attic room.
Outside, the furnished porch lends itself perfectly to al fresco dining, presenting a wonderful view of your own private gardens and swimming pool. The outdoor dining experience is further complimented by an impressive stone-built barbecue.
The villa is surrounded by age-old olive trees.
Villa Achlades is perfectly situated to offer the peace and tranquility of a countryside retreat blended with the sophistication and excitement of nearby Rethymno City (just 15 minutes by car towards the west).
Panormo village, a beautiful seaside village with fine beaches and plenty of life is just a few minutes away.
If you feel like exploring the area, we suggest the Melidoni Cave, which is a short distance from the village. It is one of the most interesting caves in Crete , both in speleological, archaeological and historical perspective. Asphalted road from the village leads to the square in front of the cave.
The cave consists of the Central Hall of Heroes , featuring stalactites and columns. From the hall onward the cave is divided into two strands. The large one is directed to the East and has a length of 30 m. The smaller one goes to the north leading to the abyss "Petrohilos". Both have very rich stone decoration.
