Ideally suitable for 5 people, there are three bedrooms in the Villa, all with view to the sea – one with double bed and terrace, one with semi-double bed and terrace and one with twin beds.

There is also one bathroom with W/C, and hydro massage bath. All of the rooms are fully air conditioned. The combination of the air conditioning, the fireplace and the sun heating makes the house suitable for all the seasons of the year. The location of the villa is ideal as it is built in a quiet rural region, but very close to the beach and the city of Rethymno. It is also very close to some of the most important sightseeings of the region, the Arcadi monastery and the ancient city of Eleytherna. Villa Gaia is ideal for families , couples and individuals who would like to feel the independence and the real Cretan village life. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1041K122K2768301More

Interaction with guests
As the owner of the house, I would like to help my guests know my place and make my best so that they will have a wonderful experience in Crete, which they will remember forever. As a result, I am available anytime for their questions about the house and I will be happy to help them with suggestions about places worth visiting and activities. A booklet with the region's most famous sightseeings is in the house for the guests. A welcome pack of fruits, juices, soft drinks, water, wine olive oil, coffee, tea and cakes or cookies is also offered to the guests on their arrival's day.

About the neighbourhood
Villa Gaia is located in a beautiful rural area, full of trees and herbs, and has a spectacular view to the sea and the city of Rethymno, which is only 18kms away, as well as to the mountain Psiloritis. The guests can enjoy the relaxation and privacy of the village, but they are also very close to the beach (6kms), the city and all kinds of shops, as larger villages are nearby. The region of the house has two of the most important historical sightseeings of Rethymno, the Arcadi monastery (8kms away) and the Ancient Eleytherna museum and archaeological site (7kms). Furthermore, it is located in the center of the island, which makes nearly all the island's sightseeings accessible.
Getting around
Although there is public transportation from Rethymno to Skouloufia and the opposite, a car is neccessary as the bus passes only once a day from the village.
