Description of the Hania vacation villa rental
This beautiful house, in the little village of Loutra, 12km from Rethymnon, has been built with great style and is a wonderful setting for a holiday with extended family or a large group of friends. There is a 30sqm swimming pool, situated in the owner?s grounds, opposite the villa and across the little village road. The house is suitable for up to 14 people, with 6 bedrooms, 5 of which have twin beds, one of which has a double bed. There are 6 shower rooms with WC, most of which are ensuite, a few of these also have a bath. Air conditioning (9 units) is available at an extra local charge. The house takes up an imposing corner position in the village, and with the character of the old village all around, a more authentic style experience is a possibility.

One enters the split-level courtyard through wrought iron gates arched with bougainvillaea, and immediately there is a sense of generosity and welcome. There is a paved loggia at the entrance to the main living area, furnished with large wooden dining table for dining Al Fresco, and on the various terraces around and above there are bounteous terracotta pots overflowing with plants and flowers. The house is designed on a series of levels and is composed of an elegant main living area, plus a further uniquely styled variety of self contained ensuite bedrooms and apartments leading off the courtyard and off upper verandas.

The main living area is split level with marble floors and fine art works, has a stone fireplace, a baby grand piano, and comfortable sofas. On a raised level to one side is a modern fully equipped kitchenette and a small elegant dining area. A pretty tiny patio leads off the kitchen, and there is a full bathroom/WC leading off from the dining area. From the first floor terrace there is a narrow wrought iron staircase leading up to a really beautiful split level roof terrace with latticed wood surround, ideal for relaxing in the sun. The roof terraces offer attractive views all around, across to the sea in the distance, over rooftops and old village houses. Due to the village and the nature of the old buildings around, not all of the patios or terraces of Villa Athena are entirely private. The house is also not suitable for those with mobility difficulties but the terraces of the villa have been designed with the safety of children in mind.
The nearest beach can be found at a distance of 3km. There are some village mini-markets and tavernas, within walking distance, and there is a bus service to Rethymnon, but we consider car hire to be essential.
!!! Together with the neighbourhouse there can be accommodated agroup of up to 22 guests
