Indulge yourself in the calming view of the Mediterranean Sea from the top of a small hill and right in the middle of a large garden full of beautiful flowers. On the one side, a kitchen garden with organically grown fruit-bearing trees and on the other one acre of lawn with bona fide green plants. A small gorge crossing above attracting various kinds of birds completes the heavenly mix.
The villas themselves are built with high standards and feature all modern comforts such us Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, shower rooms with Jacuzzi-sauna, fully equipped kitchen with gas plus a private pool, barbecue and garden.
And all of that, just 5 km away from the lovely City of Rethymno and 3,5 km away from the beach.
Sit back and enjoy.
Oreades villa is located on the outskirts of Rethymno City in a small village called Giannoudi. Giannoudi is located on a mountain slope with beautiful views towards the Cretan Sea. It is surrounded by breathtaking natural features such as canyons, hills and wonderful beaches. The villas are approximately equidistant from both the airports of Heraklion and Chania - about 75 km. The neighboring village, Platanias (about 5 minutes away), has taverns, cafes, butcher’s shops, baker’s shops as well as small souvenir shops. There are two larger supermarkets about 7 minute by away car.
The Greek government has declared Giannoudi an area of particular cultural value. The surrounding area, with the Prasses Gorge and the river at the foot of the settlement, has been described as an area of great natural beauty.
Situated just 3 km from the east Rethymno beaches, 15 minutes from the Old Town and the Old Port and approximately 1 hour from Chania and Heraklion, Giannoudi makes a convenient base for any excursions.

We very much enjoyed our stay in Oreades Villas. Mr. Dimitris and Mr. Manos were very helpful whenever we needed them. The location is even more beautiful than in the photo. Day trips in the area were great and we were provided with many suggestions. We were a family of 8 but there was easily more space for 4 more...our friends had to drop out at the last moment. The only drawback was that the sho... more
