Villa Rogdia is approved by Greek Tourism Organisation & managed by "etouri vacation rental management".

Villa Rogdia is a 150 square meters villa with private pool, ideal for people who look for holidays away from the usual tourist areas! It is located in Atsipades village, 20 minutes away from Cretan south coast and beaches!

The space
The villa is a two-storey old traditional house built in 1890! The house was totally renovated a few years ago with preserving its traditional touches.

Layout of the villa:

Entering the villa on the ground floor you will find an open plan area with the fully equipped kitchen, the living room area with satellite HDTV, a fireplace and the indoor dinning table. Also on the ground floor there is one bedroom with 2 single beds and air-condition and one bathroom with bath.

From the open plan area you will have direct access to the 100 square meters veranda which offers amazing views of the valley lying in front of the mountain. In the veranda you will find the barbecue area with sink, an old traditional wood oven and a dinning table under a shady bower of grape trees!

On the first floor there is a hall with a sofa and an other fireplace where you also have exit to the pool area.
Also on that floor there is a bathroom with shower and two bedrooms with access to an other smaller veranda. One bedroom has double bed and air-condition and the other has two single beds.

Outdoors from the backside of the villa across a small and quiet path, there is a private swimming pool with sun beds and an umbrella and lawn covered area.
The pool area offers privacy from the nearby houses and the best views to the valley.

The unique benefits of villa Rogdia according to my opinion are:

- Great views from any angle of the veranda or the pool area!
- The location is “away from it all” in a totally natural environment but close to everything! Also it gives you the advantage of visiting the amazing natural beaches of south coast easily as it is only 20 minutes away!
- Privacy! It is difficult to find a house located in the middle a Cretan village and also offering full privacy to the guests!
- The location of the house in the village which will give you the advantage to interact with the villagers who lives next to the villa and find out by yourself about the Cretan hospitality!

Where you’ll be

Atsipades, Rethymno, Crete, Greece

The villa is located in the centre of village Atsipades which is a very small village on the foothills of a mountain, offering unique views to the valley lying in front!
The area around the village is totally in nature and quiet! You will be able to relax and feel “away from it all” from the first moment of your arrival.
It is one of the best locations if you seek to stay away from the tourist areas of Crete and also visit the amazing natural beaches of south Crete like Praveli, Damnoni, Schinaria, Triopetra and many more!
There are two big villages nearby where you can find shops, bakeries, many taverns and supermarkets. The well known village of Spili which also has a health centre is located 10 minutes away by car and the village of Armeni which is 15 minutes away.
Finally in the South coast, about 20 minutes away from the villa there is a small sea front town of Plakias where you can find everything that you might need and also several choices for entertainment.
If you like adventure, the location also offers the advantage of exploring the unique natural environment of Crete’s inland. Explore the villages, interact with the locals, find taverns with real Cretan cuisine and products, walk in the gorges around or find some totally isolated beaches! We will be happy to make you suggestions and directions for places which only locals know about them!

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…
