Far into the Cretan inland, at the foot of Mount Idi, the tallest mountain in Crete and birthplace of Zeus according to the Greek Mythology, two twin villas are standing proudly, waiting to be discovered.
Like a natural extension of the mountain itself the two villas are made of stone. Each of them has wooden beamed ceilings and tasteful furnishings and features a spacious living area with a fireplace, a dining area, a fully fitted kitchen, 2 bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with 2 twin beds, all with individual balconies) and a bathroom. And that’s just the ground floor. On the second floor, you will find 2 more bedrooms (again one with a double bed and one with 2 twin beds, all with individual balconies) and two more bathrooms.
On the outside, within the 8 acres of fenced private land, you will find an 85 sq. m. swimming pool.
The guests of these villas can collect fresh fruits and vegetables from the complex’s garden and prepare their own meals with Cretan olive oil which will be provided upon arrival, along with a welcome pack of raki, wine, fresh fruits an some Cretan herbs.
The nearest shops and taverns are located in the neighboring villages of Viran Episkopi (2 km) and Skouloufia (3 km).
The location is suitable for all kinds of activities like hiking, bicycle riding, walking or exploring the countryside. On the property itself, you will find the ruin of the former Church of St. John.
Pikris is a tiny village right above Rethymno Bay. It nestles within the wild and romantic valley that lines with the Pikris Creek. Stavromenos beach is 6 km away from the villas, while the scenic City of Rethymno is 17 km away. Free on-site parking is possible.
Within 1.5 km you will also find Arkadi Monatsry, UNESCO’s European Freedom Monument and symbol of Cretan bravery.

La Villa est très belle, isolée et avec une superbe vue sur la mer et les montagnes. Merci beaucoup pour ce séjour, tout c’est très bien passé.
We had a great time in this beuatyfull and spacious villa. It was quite far from “things to do” but we had a good car to get around. The owners were very nice and helpfull with anything we needed. We are a family with a love for cooking, but the kitchen itself was to small for so many people. It would have been nice to have a big kitchen in the spacious room downstairs. Thanks for having ... more
Fantastica vacanza. Luogo isolato e silenzioso immerso negli ulivi. Siamo stati ospiti in agosto 2021 e ci siamo veramente divertiti. Spazi comuni molto grandi, piscina molto bella e ottimo barbecue con tutto l'occorrente. Stanze semplici e accoglienti. Cucina bene attrezzata. Gentilissima la signora Vicky che ci ha consigliato e coccolato per tutto il soggiorno. Grazie Vivamente consigliato
Wir hatten eine wunderbare Woche in der Villa und können eine makellose Betreuung berichten. Das Haus steht auf einem Hügel für sich allein mit großartigem Ausblick bis zum Meer. Wir konnten ungestört eine Woche dem Alltag entfliehen und einen gemeinsamen Ausflug in großer Gruppe zelebrieren (inkl. Musik, Geselligkeit etc.). Das Concierge-Team war jederzeit ansprechbar, organisierte Restaurantbesu... more
