The village of Eleftherna is well known because of the archaeological site and the newly built museum of Ancient Eleftherna and has about 400 inhabitants today.

Given the location of the village and the landscape, there are numerous attractive hiking and cycling routes. The European path E4 crosses the village and passes through behind the building. The villa provides 4 mountain bicycles and light hiking equipment (batons) for free. Visitors can also easily explore the archaeological site of ancient Eleftherna (which is a stone-throw away) and the new built museum, Arkadi (7 km away), Margarites (6 km) the cave of Melidoni (22 km away), Zoniana (32 km away), Anogia (37 km away).

ETOURI is located in 271 Arkadiou Str. Rethymno, Crete and is approved by the Greek Tourist Organisation. The founder - Kostas Vasilakis, who studied Economics and Marketing, got involved with the vacation rental industry 10 years ago since his father built one of the first holiday villas in Crete. Immediately he understood that conventional vacation rental agencies were focusing more on increasing the number of bookings by adding more villas in their portfolio than helping the owner of each villa to operate better or guests to have truly great experiences. He started ETOURI and made goal of his life to make this company DIFFERENT. A company with first priority: the 5 star reviews - totally satisfied guests and not the number of bookings - with believing in his philosophy that the success and having higher number of bookings will follow if we spend time for our guests and assist them to make even one day of their holidays better. Kostas invented many aspects of managing vacation rentals, creating methods and procedures and now he is considered one of the pioneers in the business. ETOURI operates as a vacation rental management company providing more than just an accommodation service. A team of consultants check the villas, guide the owners and create experiences with a wide range of services according to the needs of every individual guest. ETOURI has the full management of all the vacation rentals that it represents, knowing everything about them and the areas in which they are located. Along we have a list of exclusive services to provide a complete holiday experience on top of our support and concierge service. ----------- The past 10 years, ETOURI has been established as the industry standard in Crete due to its early adoption of innovative methods of promotion and introduction of exclusive customer services. ETOURI has built a network of partners, customers and tools that elevated its flexibility, productivity and results in the industry. ETOURI’s success opened the road to other individuals and companies to approach its methods and overall develop and upgrade the complete industry in Crete. ----------- Today it goes one step further by creating the “Holiday Advisor” concierge service with: - 24 hr phone service available during the stay - using a phone at the villa - like the reception desk in hotels, plus more online tools such as “login page” for travellers and villa owners to offer easier customer experience and much more to come…
