More than a century of stories have been born in this villa, which was originally built in 1900. Its owners rebuilt it in full in 2012, so that you can hopefully create a story of your own; a story that you will be sharing for many years ahead.
The one thing you will not miss while staying at Villa Zouridi is space; the villa is large enough (500 sq. m.) to accommodate up to 15 people, without anyone feeling cramped. On top of that, it features a 100 sq. m. private pool. This building is divided into three different apartments. ‘Spanos’ is the largest one (up to 7 guests), featuring a living room, a dining area, two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen. The other two apartments lay on the lower level. The larger of the two is called ‘Fournos’ and can take up to 5 guests (one double bedroom, one bedroom with two single beds, one living area with a dining table, and one bathroom). The smallest one, ‘Axeronas’, can accommodate up to 3 people (one double bed, one single bed in the living room, and one bathroom). All have adequate equipment, providing independence. The villa has also a communal dining area, a communal living room, and a communal kitchen. Should you find yourself in an “I don’t want to do anything” mood, the owners are always willing to prepare your meals for you for a small fee. Outside, by the pool, there is a BBQ area and a small bar where you can sit and enjoy the panoramic view. Last but not least, within the 20 acres of land the villa sits in, you will meet ‘Daphne’, the owner’s horse. You are free to take her for a ride.
The position of the villa is excellent: centrally located in the heart of Crete, only 18 km from the historic and vibrant City of Rethymno, Villa Zouridi is perfect for a variety of activities of historical, cultural or simply recreational interest.
The area is full of Christian churches which you can visit and admire. At the same time, you are very close to the Temple of the Five Maidens, one of the most historical monuments in Crete. The natural beauty of the area is a bonus for those who love outdoor activities. We can arrange hikes for you in the surrounding countryside which is filled with wild flowers and herbs. The village of Argiroupolis, popular for its waters - courtesy of the springs of the Holy Power, traditional taverns, ancient mills and chapels is just nearby. Also, thanks to the location of Villa Zouridi, you have easy access to both the North and South coast of Crete. In 15 minutes you can be at the beach of Episkopi, while in another 25 minutes you can be at the beautiful southern resort of Plakias.

Wir haben uns rundum in der Villa wohlgefühlt. Der Anreisetag war für uns sehr stressig, da wir durch eine Flugverspätung erst sehr spät angekommen sind. Giannis, der Vermieter, hatte sehr viel Verständnis und hat uns angeboten dass wir vor der Schlüsselübergabe auch noch Essen gehen könnten. Wir hatten in Zouridi unsere Ruhe und konnten die Zeit miteinander genießen. Wir waren 12 Personen im Alte... more
The Villa was beautiful with lots of historical character but in need of some maintenance both inside and out. The area has outstanding beauty however the gardens surrounding the villa have not been maintained in some time. Not somewhere you would freely walk without gaining a few prickles! With a large group of 15 and 1 infant, the one small kitchen made meal times difficult for us unless we used... more
Prior to our arrival the host was helpful in answering questions we had and provided useful information about services such as the pre arrival shopping service, which was very useful. If you are arriving late at night I would use a transfer, the villa would be hard to find on unfamiliar roads in the dark. When we arrived our host let us in and show us around. He was very helpful and friendly and p... more
