Standing on a wide hilltop, rising between two gorges, Villa Argiro, one of three detached private villas with views encompassing the diverse beauty of Crete and perfectly positioned for exploring both the north and south coasts.
The only sounds are goat bells and cicadas in the wild broom. The setting is blissfully rural, yet the welcoming owners, Dimitris and Sini, furnished Villa Argiro to the highest standards. The nearest village, Prasses, a quintessentially Cretan hamlet of great charm, has a couple of simple kafenions and is just a few minutes away. In contrast, Rethymnon has a wide range of shops and restaurants and its narrow streets hide numerous fragments of Crete's colourful past: a castle, 16th Century mansions, old mosques and a marvellous carved fountain.
