Arion Krini Villa offers a full privacy with amazing sea view in its luxury settings a little 10 minutes drive to several beautiful beaches or 15 minutes drive to the old town of Rethymno where are the main shops and restaurants.

It is situated outsider of Amnatos village in a private land of 4,000 square meters overlooking the Cretan sea.

The surrounding area is a quiet, natural environment ideal for relaxation but also very close to all kinds of shops, restaurants and various services. You can find many grocery shops in Stavromenos village which is 6 km away but also the closest big living areas where you can find a variety of bakeries, supermarkets, nightlife and restaurants are the well known tourist areas of Platanias and Adelianos Kampos which are 10 minutes drive away.

It is a perfect location for getting to know and explore the exquisite Cretan nature and unique historical monuments of the island. The Monastery of Arkadi with its glorious history and the beauty of the landscape makes this destination the second most visited place of the important monuments of Crete and it is situated only 5 km from the villa. Finally, the location enables visitors to explore the archaeological site of ancient Eleftherna and caves of Melidoni and Zoniana which are some of the most famous tourist destinations in central Crete. Due to the location of the village and the terrain in the area, there are many beautiful hiking and biking trails as to the nearby village of Kapsaliana where you can find the Museum of Olive.

It is beyond any doubt that our villa combines both unique privacy but also easy access to facilities and places, offering a rare luxury to shape your holidays just the way you like.

PLEASE be advised that the villa may appear on a different "location category" on HomeAway affiliate websites, depending on their categorised locations (each affiliate website has its own "location categories").
