Villa Satra is a 190 sq.m two-story stone built villa, located on one of the highest spots of the village offering views on the Cretan Sea, Mt. Psiloritis and the whole area.

The villa was formally an oil factory built in 19 century and in 1949 it was converted to a residence with the addition of the first floor. Now it has been fully renovated (2012) and transformed into a comfortable villa with combination of the modern and traditional style.

Entering the villa on the ground floor, the living room area provides a complete entertainment area, as the TV corner has a DVD player, satellite TV and WiFi connection.

The fully equipped kitchen has all the essentials (such as electric oven, microwave, fridge and freezer, dishwasher, coffee machine, toaster and washing machine).
There is also a bedroom with two single beds and a bathroom with shower on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are three more bedrooms, two with double bed and one with two single beds. This floor has two bathrooms and one is an en-suite bathroom with a double room.

All the interiors are cozy and tastefully decorated with wooden and iron furniture, elegant drapery and curios. Comfortable sofas and big dining tables in both indoor and outdoor areas guarantee relaxed summer evenings.

Outdoor area of the villa has a big garden with barbecue facilities and a traditional wood oven, parking area and a 40 sq.m private swimming pool with sun beds and umbrellas.

In a lower level there is a large fenced plot of land which has vegetable gardens and fruits trees which you can enjoy with your meals!

The unique benefits of Villa Satra are:

- Full privacy as there are not many houses nearby.

- Great layout for all the guests such as families, friends and couples.

- Safe pool fence for children.

- Walking distance to a tavern and a mini market.

- Next to the villa going down to the lower level there is a big plot of land which you have direct access from the villa and you can find all kind of vegetables and fruit trees that you can use for your meals. Also our grandmother who lives nearby will deliver you every morning fresh eggs from her chickens and other Cretan specialties.

- Owners hospitality! The owner will be on hand to help and give you any advice required.

- Total nature around the villa but close to the village centre!

Villa Satra is the perfect place to get away from it all and totally unwind, but also within easy reach by car of good beaches and Rethymnon town. The villa itself is delightful. The pool and oudoor cooking area are fantastic, and having access to the garden to pick fresh salad vegetables is amazing. Kostas and his family are extremely helpful and generous hosts and were constantly delighting us with gifts of fruit, wine, olive oil, fresh eggs, and homemade cake. We would highly recommend Villa Satra, and hope to be able to return agan ourselves in the future.

The house is amazing and exactly like the photos. There's lots of space outside including a big built-in barbecue, vegetable garden. We chose this house as the pool is fully surrounded by a fence and so it was very easy to ensure that our small children did not go in the pool when we were not around. Kostas made us feel very welcome - and was available to answer all of our questions during the trip.

We stayed for a week with 2 families: 4 adults, 4 kids. The villa was comfortable, clean, included all the advertised features and amenities. It was spacious enough for all of us. We felt very well taken care of, Kostas welcomed us and brought lovely and unexpected gifts. To complement the great host, eTouri service were also very useful to get recommendations and organise day trips. We have nothing but praise for the owner and the place. Highly recommended.

I have just returned from a week in this villa near Rethymno and it was absolutely fantastic. One of the nicest villas I have ever stayed in with beautiful surroundings and in a quiet location. Kostas was extremely helpful, our flight was delayed and he waited with his son until 2am to let us in, gave us fresh eggs, tomatoes, olive oil and wine. He also dropped off a key when we accidentally locked ourselves out of the villa! The villa had all the amenities, a BBQ, pizza oven, coffee machine etc etc. the pool was great and there was enough outside space and a long balcony too, big enough space for morning yoga! The villa was extremely clean, provided bath and beach towels which makes it much easier and was cleaned halfway through the week with fresh towels. Hector the horse in the field next door also made my week :) perfect holiday and would go back in a heartbeat and will definitely suggest the villa to friends and family! Slightly hard to find the villa in the dark but if you have a GPS it's not too bad, thanks Kostas!
