Outside, there is a comfortably arranged swimming-pool area with BBQ facilities and outdoor dining furniture, where you can enjoy your meals. It has an amazing 41m2 private pool, 1.80m deep with sun beds and umbrellas to relax and enjoy the greek sun. Near the swimming-pool there is an outdoor shower. BBQ facilities are also provided at the front yard of the villa. Furthermore: - Fully air-conditioned - Two parking spaces at the villa premises - Bed linen, bath and pool towels provided - Books for those who enjoy reading - Cooking utensils and first aid kit - Baby cots and baby/small children related furniture (upon request) - Free internet (WiFi) - Animals welcome upon arrangement The villa was built in 1995 by the family of the owners. It was in 2001, after a complete renovation – always with great respect to the natural beauties and attractions of Roussospiti village, that the villa was first used to lodge visitors and tourists. It was the caring and hospitable father of the family, Yannis, who had it going for a two-year period under the name “Villa Dina-Irini”. Due to personal reasons and despite the its overall successful course, the operation was for some time closed. It is the family of Eirini who decided to renovate once again and re-open the premises. Its new name, “Amarandos”, refers to amaranth or sempre viva, the flower of the everlasting blossom. Roussospiti is located near Rethymno, at an altitude of 400m. The view from the verandas is truly breathtaking. It’s not for nothing that the whole village is known as “the balcony of Rethymno”. Stretching ahead lies the cretan sea; towering behind is the mountain Vrysinas. Rethymno lies at the very centre of Crete, with an easy access to all places of the island. The nearest beach is about 6 km away in Perivolia Rethimno. It is a long sandy organized beach with umbrellas and sun beds. Water sports are available in the summer months. There are other also many beaches around that you can visit. Renting a car is essential. We’d be very glad to welcome you and make your stay unforgettable! Welcome to Crete! More
