There are two villas in the grounds but although they share the entrance the two villas are totally autonomous. The main entrance to the villa is approached by a short flight of steps from the private parking area. The ground floor has an open plan living/dining/kitchen area which is well equipped with all the basic necessities for a comfortable stay. There is one bedroom with twin beds on the ground floor as well as a shower room with WC. On the upper floor, there is the main bathroom which is shared by the two bedrooms situated there. One bedroom has a double bed and the other twin beds.
The private swimming pool is approximately 40 square metres and one corner is sectioned off for children although children must be supervised at all times. A BBQ is a great way to spend an evening and the villa has a lovely stone built barbeque for visitors to use.
The surrounding areas have a host of places to explore and things to do. The famous Samaria Gorge is very popular with walkers but if a waterpark is for you, then look no further than Chania, an hours' drive away. The town of Rethymnon is close by and offers something for all the members of the family. The long sandy beach has water sports, the culture vultures can track down the Venetian and Turkish sites and the shopaholics can spend hours trawling the vast selection of shops spread out in both the old and new town. Then when sustenance is called for, there are restaurants and tavernas to suit every taste and pocket.

Villa Ionna has a hilltop location with wonderful views over the surrounding area to the Cretan Sea below. The little village of Maroulas, 2km away, has a small range of facilities for your immediate needs whilst the bustling town of Platanes is 1km further on. Formerly a small fishing village, Platanes has grown into a popular coastal resort with activities to suit all tastes. The town has good shopping, dining and leisure facilities and if you are looking for a lively nightlife, there are numerous bars, discos and tavernas which keep buzzing until the early hours. The beach is long and sandy, with a range of water sports on offer and sunbeds and parasols available to hire
The city of Rethymnon is ten minutes drive to the west from Platanes offering a variety of day and evening entertainment and a large choice of shops, restaurants and clubs. It has a huge expanse of gently sloping beach lined with tavernas and bars which stretches for 20km. The quaint old town is a mass of narrow alleyways lined with Turkish houses and minarets reflecting the 250 years when it was ruled by the Turks, with a Venetian influence showing in its charming houses with wooden balconies and wall fountains. The picturesque harbour is lined with fish restaurants offering a range of regional specialities and locally caught seafood, and there are regular boat excursions leaving from this point. In July/August, the city stages a Renaissance Festival and comes alive with folk music and traditional Greek dramas, or you may be able to sample locally produced wine in the public gardens during the annual Wine Festival.
