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 like Preveli and Schinaria.

The space

The villa is located on the foothills of a mountain, about 20 minutes away from the natural south coast beaches!

It 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 the villa has a private swimming pool with sun beds and umbrellas! Next to the pool in a higher level there is a small children playground under fruit trees!
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!

Guest access

Guests will have access and full privacy to all areas indoor and outdoor!

Interaction with guests

We will wait for you in the villa for your arrival (despite the time, even after midnight) in order to help you with the house details and give you as much informations as you want about the area, taverns, shops, places and beaches that you have to visit!

Finally we will be there for your departure for our last thank you!

Our flight was delayed and the host kindly waited for us to arrive - and took time to make sure we were settled. Location is amazing. Lots of peace and quiet. But close enough to great beaches (prefer those on the south), Spili just a short drive away and lots of great local tavernas within a short drive. The house is well furnished and equipped. Very relaxing feel. Thanks for the hospitality. Hope to come back.

Our group of 3 adults and 3 children had a wonderful time in Villa Rogdia. The Villa is well-equipped, very clean, and is situated in a small Cretan village in quiet surroundings. The house itself offered plenty of highlights such as a large patio with sweeping views of the beautiful countryside, a nice barbeque, comfortable beds, a well-equipped kitchen and enough space for 6 people to sleep, eat and relax comfortably. The obligatory Wifi also worked well. There is also a nice pool area although it was too early in the season to swim. We stayed in late March / early April and were lucky enough to see the village celebrate Easter at the chapel adjacent to the Villa. A really unique experience and a special memory! Kostas, Sophia and Mr. John were very accomodating and ensured that our every need was met. Kostas also gave some valuable tips regarding car hire and places to visit. I can highly recommend this Villa to anyone searching for a holiday in quiet, authentic surroundings and good access to both the north and the south coast. A car is essential (although parking at the Villa is an adventure in itself!), and makes the Villa Rogdia an ideal base for exploring the center of Crete.

The villa is beautiful (with a lovely view), located in a little village in the mountains, but within easy driving distance of many lovely locations. The villa is a good size, well presented, very clean and had all the amenities we would expect. The owner and Kostas and his team made sure that our stay was memorable. We would definitely recommend staying here.

We really enjoyed the stay in the villa. It's very comfortable, nicely equipped and the hosts are really accommodating. It really lives up to its name as you are away from the main crowded tourist areas and can enjoy the real Crete atmosphere.

Très belle villa baignée de soleil, très bien équipée, espace très confortable pour 6 personnes avec 2 salles de bain (produits de toilette fournis), espace nuit et espace jour bien séparés, une vaste terrasse sans vis à vis, calme total. Piscine privée très agréable, accessible par l'extérieur de la maison. Accueil chaleureux du propriétaire, pâtisseries crétoises et corbeille de fruit généreuses à notre arrivée. Le ménage est fait tous les 3 jours, après avoir prévenu et demandé si le créneau est convient. Inconvénients : villa très éloignée de tout, pas de taverne ou de bar de village, le premier supermarché est à 15 km, le chemin qui part de l'axe Rethimnon-Spili à la Villa Rodgia est de 7 km , très étroit, souvent en mauvais état et pas éclairé la nuit. Plages à au moins 45 minutes de route. L'endroit est parfaitement paisible mais la contre partie est l'isolement.
