Holiday Rental House
Villa Petropolis has been standing there for some centuries. The Greek government and the department of argeology has regognized the building as a unique authentic Cretean house and has overseen all the effort of restoration. An Italian architect supervised the time consuming work of desplacing the stones, numbering them, stabilizing the wall and them placing them back on the wall. The floor was escavated going two meters down removing the earth cleaning the foundations and reinforcing them by well ironarmed concrete beams. An earth wake frequency vibrated machine was used to measure the strength of the structure after the restoration. A well in the house was turned into a wine cellar, with Greek bottled wine some of it dated as back as 35 years old.The floor of the villa in the lobby is ...Villa Petropolis has been standing there for some centuries.

The upper part of the villa was build in the year 1929 as testified by the initials of the owner at the time, including the date of year of the construction encraved on a corner stone in the exterior wall. In the lobby the wood in the ceiling must be some centuries old. Stone, iron and wood dominate the villa. All doors of the villa are made out of cedar wood and the windows glasses are vitro.Three suites, four bathrooms and an exceptionally decorated lounge area that incudes a dinning, livingroom, kitchen and a massive functionable fireplace complete the picture. If you are looking for a unique experience and a sence that you are living in an museum, villa petropolis is ready to wellcome and spoil you with all the modern amenities without loosing its ancient look and beauty.More

About the neighbourhood
The area surrounding the villa is magnificent. The villa is situated in the lower part of the village. Its hidden in a small path that 100 below takes you to the magnificent spings that come from inside the mountain from a small churge. Its drinkable and locals drink it to help them digest. Only 20 metres of the villa you find the Gastronomical centre of Crete where all available cretan products are on display and many of those products you can taste for free. Going up in small paths leading the upper part of the village you can visit two local museums enjoy a magnificent view and dine at nemerous restaurents, visit the argeorogigal sites and take the small train that takes you to Georgioupolis for swimming ang water sports. On the other hand you can take a donky and go down to the springs...

By bus from Rethymno twice daily, 25 kilom. away. By Hraklio airport 85 kilom. away. By renting a car from the airports or the cities. . Please follow the signs of CRETAN GASTRONOMY CENTRE.We are located 20 meters from there.
