3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7
Agia Paraskevi, Rethymnon Prefecture, Crete
Villa Alkistis is located in the scenic area of the village Aghia Paraskevi just 8,5 km from the historical town of Rethymno (Crete).
Idyllically positioned in a peaceful full of trees hill, Alkistis offers a panoramic view to the sea and the mountains, Psiloritis and Vrisinas. The sweet singing of birds from the sunrise until the late afternoon will musically caress your ears and according to the fresh air will accompany the hours of relaxing.
The surrounding olive woods and aromatic plants give to the visitor the sense of seclusion and privacy, and let him enjoy his staying far away from noise looking at the sea, the mountains and the stars.
Alkistis is a new building villa surrounded of olive groves and wild plants. It is a lovely family house, about 110 sqm, with a private swimming pool and it is suitable for 6-8 persons.

Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Regrettably we stayed only a week in this fabulous, peaceful, well-equipped rental and could easily have stayed longer. It is located in a fairly isolated spot which you would never find unaided and access to the hillside site would be virtually impossible without a car. Be prepared for very steep hills and rough, unmade roads (or tracks!) littered with obstacles...

We all had a lovely time staying at the villa. It is certainly in a very peaceful part of Crete with wonderful sea views. Just what we wanted. We all had a swim in the pool even my 85 year old mother in law although it was a little cool for her. Having a downstairs bedroom and bathroom was Ideal....
