Villa Rouga Crete

Villa Rouga - just outside Xirosternion village inland from Almyrida Beach, on the Apokoronas peninsula, in Chania.

A Villa in Rethymnon

Crete Villa - Kaloniktis

Stratos Villas are located in rolling hills in the central north of the island, only 7 km from the beach.

Sitting on a small hill 12 km from Rethymnon town on the north coast of Crete, Stratos Villas are 82 km from Chania town and 70 km from the international airport, in the very centre of the island. This makes a perfect location from which to explore the whole island of Crete.

Kaloniktis is an unspoilt farming village with narrow lanes and beautiful traditional Cretan architecture and Venetian buildings including a mill. The surrounding countryside is wonderful for walking.

Arrive to this villa via Chania Airport CHQ or ferry into Souda Port.

Villa Stratos is run by a local family. Eva Kapetanakis says:

"This is a family business. Villa Stratos has taken its name from my husband Stratos, Villa Fouli from my eldest daughter Fouli and Villa Maria from my younger daughter Maria.

We make our best for our guests, in order to have relaxing and unforgettable holidays here in Rethymnon".

The location of the villas just outside a small village, surrounded by agricultural land, makes it perfect for nature adventures.

Whether it is walking tour or cycling in the nearby leafy paths, or hiking on the lush hills and discovering beautiful plane, oak and olive trees as well as various aromatic plants, bushes and herbs, there is plenty to do here.

A small river 100m away from Stratos Villas is a relaxing spot for watching frogs, crabs, turtles, ducks and birds or simply meditating in nature.

From April to December there is gardening to enjoy, whilst in May, June and July there is sheep shearing and in November the new season’s wine tasting is open to guests.

Are you interested in cooking Cretan food? Evangelia, the now famous family cook, will be very pleased to show you the way pure traditional Cretan dishes and sweets are made.

Pure virgin olive oil, home-made wine and raki, fruits and vegetables are produced in the house gardens. Plenty of other locally grown foods are also delicious.
