Holiday Rental House
In 1900 it was first built but been fully rebuilt and operated in 2012. This historical building can accommodate up to 15 people since it's a 500 sqm building with a 100 sqm private pool. It's excellent for big groups that want to be situated in the middle of Crete, giving you the chance to visit the entire island. This building is divided in three different houses/apartments along with a breakfast/dinner area, a communal kitchen and that's because in two of the small apartments there is no kitchenette. Only in the big house (130sqm), where its name came from the owner that first build the house 'Spanos', there is a fully equipped kitchen along with a living room, a dining area, two double bedrooms, two bathrooms. It can take up to 7 people and it's situated on the top of the building. ... In 1900 it was first built but been fully rebuilt and operated in 2012.

It can take up to 7 people and it's situated on the top of the building. In the lower level the other apartment 'Fournos' can take up to 5 people since there is one double bedroom, one bedroom with two single beds, one living area along with a dining table and one bathroom. Next to 'Fournos' our last apartment is named 'Axeronas' and can sleep 3 people since there is only on double bed and one sofa bed in the living room. All of them have Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, Satelite TV & LCD TV with USB input, fireplace, living room and refrigerators. There is a communal area where you can find a large flat screen TV, DVD, Stereo system, play cards, some other games like backgammon, a PC with printer and fax machine. Next to this area the dining area for the entire group and a communal kitchen is there for you to prepare your dinner or breakfast. For a small fee the owners can prepare your breakfast or dinner if you wish to relax and do nothing at all. On the outside and within the 20 acres of land, there is 'Dafni' the owner's horse where guests can take her for a ride. By the pool there is a BBQ area and a small bar where you can sit and enjoy the panoramic views of the landscape. The pool is 100 square metres, with a depth of 1.60 metres, children's pool 40cm deep, with overflow system providing sodium chloride electrolysis. The seawater has emollient properties so that the skin and hair retain their smooth texture and do not become dry and brittle as happens when using chlorine. Another very important factor is that when the water passes through the electrodes, chloramines ('dead chlorine' which causes the chlorine smell and stinging eyes) are destroyed, leaving the water fresh and healthy, and ideal for children. The position of the hotel is excellent: centrally located in the heart of Crete, only 18 km from the historic and vibrant city of Rethymno, the hotel offers a variety of activities of historical, cultural or simply recreational interest. If you are interested in hiking it is possible to visit the Temple of the Five Maidens, a marvelous ramble, and also the Island, a fossilized village on the mountain which takes its name from the rivers that surround it. Christian churches are everywhere in this area, and you can visit and admire them. The natural beauty of the area is an added bonus for those who love outdoor activities. We can arrange other hikes and rambles for you in the surrounding countryside filled with wild flowers and herbs. In nearby Argiroupolis, you will find the springs of the Holy Power, with their stone arches with streams and waterfalls, also traditional taverns, ancient mills and the chapel of Our Lady. This charming village is a about 10 minutes drive away. Thanks to the location of our hotel, you have easy access to both the North and South coasts. In 15 you can be on the beach at Episkopi, and in another 25 you arrive in the beautiful southern resort of Plakias. Small notice: The onwers leave in the property in an individual studio but they are there to help if needed. As you can see in the reviews, all of our previous guests, loved them General: -Welcome Basket -Cleaning Twice per week (1 week stay means 1 time cleaning/linen change, 2 weeks stay means 3 times cleaning) -Concierge Service -Chef Services in Villa -Transfer Service -Car Rental Service with additional discount for our guests -Wine Tasting in Villa -Sailing Service -Wedding Service More

The 17 of us arrived in villa Zouridi for a consciousness retreat. We were initially very surprised that the villa owners (Yiannis and his spouse) lived in the villa too. Due to the nature of our retreat, we in the past always booked a whole...More
