ERONDAS Cretan Country Villas: A unique rental complex with two gorgeous villas!

ERONDAS Cretan Country Villas are located at a secluded spot, 25 km eastward of the city of Rethymno and constitute an ideal destination-choice for a memorable, relaxing vacation in the Cretan countryside, just 6 km and 10 km away respectively from the lovely sandy beaches of Panormo and Bali. The villas lie on the hillside of the picturesque village of Achlades, offering magnificent views of the surrounding olive groves and vineyards, along with the so coveted serenity and quietness everybody needs while on holiday. Erondas is an alternative designation for the therapeutical herb, dittany, which in the Cretan dialect also means love. Moreover, the Villas are close to worth-visiting sites of historical significance, such as Ancient Eleftherna (vast archaeological site and brand new museum), Melidoni Cave and Arkadi Monastery, among others.
The local materials that were used for the remodeling of ERONDAS Cretan Country Villas, include untreated stones, tiles of the interwar era, cypress trunks and handmade bricks and an old trough, adhering to the traditional architecture and respecting the residence’s history. The traditional elements and their authentic character were preserved and highlighted throughout the villas: some exquisite pieces of furniture carefully restored, wall arches, wooden floors and ceilings, creating unique ambient spaces of high aesthetics. The villas are actually traditional residences (mid-18th to mid-20th century), in complete harmony with the environment, thanks to the careful restoration which recently took place and gracefully turned them in two luxurious, fully equipped villas, unique for long breaks in the beautiful island of Crete.

We spent a week in Erondas villas with our extended family. The place was perfect for us because we had all the facilities that we needed, include eating, relaxing and traveling around. The two villas are luxurious, well maintained and have a great location with a viewpoint over the green fields of Crete. What you see in the pictures are actually what you see in reality. The family who own the villas, were super kind and generous and were available whenever we needed. Achlades village is a small and quite place and have two local taverns that open till midnight. It's location is good for the people who looks for the countryside. Many other villages and a few towns are nearby if you are using a car (which is recommended). We're highly recommending Erondas villas :)

Our hosts were extremely friendly, helpful and hospitable. On arrival we were already surprised with delicious and homemade delicacies from the region. The whole villa was explained to us in detail, including the interesting story behind each detail. Anyway, the villa is designed with a lot of heart, esprit and attention to detail. Martha and her sons have done everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. There is even a small vegetable garden from which we could harvest cucumbers and tomatoes ourselves. The location is fantastic and the view at breakfast or dinner sensational. Usually a light wind goes and makes the stay on the terrace very pleasant. For better mobility, however, you should have a rental car - it is only 5 minutes to the next town and only 10 minutes to the beach. We were there with the whole family, 4 adults, 1 teenager and 1 child - due to the spacious layout we had enough space. We will come again!

We had a great one week stay at Erondas Villas. The hosts did everything to make us feel at home. We were welcomed with home made Greek snacks and the villa was just looking great: clean, very nicely decorated and all amenities were there. It's got 4 big bedrooms and shutters for the windows, so it stays pretty cool during the day. And you don't have neighbours (except for the other villa) so it feels quite far away from everything (although it isn't). We would definitely recommend this place!!

We stayed with our two sons (5 and 3) and the grandparents (a total of 8 people) for 10 days in the villa. We were greeted very warmly and felt very comfortable from the very beginning. The furnishing of the villa have the highest standards (dishwasher, coffee machine, TV in each bedroom, PS 4, stereo, barbecue, sandbox and of course the pool etc.). Beauiyful and very clean Villa: The villa is new and in perfect clean condition. The elements of the ruins from the late 19th century are artfully built in and the details in the building are very impressive. Value for money: Definitely to recommend. It was already our third visit to Crete, but we have never had the feeling to have arrived on the island like this time. The villa conveys a tradition and luxury and you will return home after 10 days purely relaxed

A very good location, easily accessible from both ends of the island. Two lovely pools which can be heated to make them useable in a weathers in spring and autumn. Very friendly owners who made sure we had everything we requested. We will come again.

We had a great stay as four families - 20 people. Quality houses, well presented. Great for us to have breakfast and dinner together - with great BBQ and dining areas and lovely views and sunsets. The location allowed us to venture out during the day to the beaches, Knossos, gorges and other attractions. Lovely local villages and beaches allowed us to mix it up from food at home. Having bicycles onsite and two pools gave those who wanted to stay behind and explore locally plenty of options. Good internet connections enabled us to stay in touch with work and family as required. The villas were very well presented by Hermes and he was great at responding to requests and providing suggestions. Our only criticism is the two kitchens are very small and more suited to catering for continental breakfast for a small family than large catering for a group of 20! That being said we had plenty of willing hands and made it work.

Accueil chaleureux, parsemé de multiples attentions. Détails soignés, maison très agréable à vivre, tranquille. La piscine est entretenu régulièrement et en toute discrétion. Excellente adresse.

Que dire... Si ce n’est que tout est beau, paisible et que les propriétaires sont absolument charmants. Vous voulez un exemple? Avant le séjour j’envoie un mail « au cas où » pour demander s’il serait possible de disposer d’une table de ping-pong pour les enfants...Devinez quoi... Elle était là à notre arrivée, achetée la veille!!! Nous étions 4 adultes, deux ados et trois enfants et tout le monde a quitté les lieux avec une petite larme à l’oeil et le coeur gros.

We had an absolutely wonderful stay at Erondas Cretan Country Villas. The villa was gorgeous, the pool was amazing and it was very well appointed. But mostly, we found the owners to be so lovely and charming. They were helpful, responsive and very caring of both my elderly mother-in-law and my children. They gave us plenty of ideas and recommendations. Plus they made us incredible local dishes that really topped off our stay. We would love to go back. Thank you for making our Cretan vacation so enjoyable.

Holidays of our lifetime. Our group (8 adults and 11 kids aged 3-9) was looking for convenient holiday destination outside (but close to) major tourist attractions of Crete and decided to go ahead with Erondas villas. We couldn't have made a better choice in all of Europe. The villas are perfect in every sense: spacious, full of modern amenities yet renovated by very knowledgeable Interior Designer with great respect for the history of Crete. With all the nice touches one could think of. With true passion we felt making it our holiday home and not just a luxurious rental. On top of that all of the family owning it made sure we were fully equipped with all the tourist answers before we even asked via daily email tips and hints regarding local specialities, places of interest etc. The neighbouring towns also have proven that while there might be many nations claiming "hospitality" being their natural instinct it is this very area of Crete that made us feel it on each occasion. While our week long stay has passed so fast I am certain we will return and not just once... Thank you!

Erondas Villas provided the perfect holiday for our family and friends this year. There was plenty of space for everyone. My pre-teen son even got his own studio which he loved. The accommodation was stylish yet user-friendly. The pools were amazing and we were close to the beach. The owners couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome and the children particularly enjoyed the regular supply of homemade pastries and biscuits.

My parents in law planned a trip to Crete to celebrate their golden wedding with the whole family. It was 14 of us and Erondas was the perfect place. We had two villas beautifully renewed (with fantastic swimming pool each). Marta and Hermes (Hosts) made the most of our stay, they made us feel really welcome and pampered us all week long; providing all sort of useful information and local delicacies. I would definitely recommend these villas, it was a perfect week! Thanks!

Hemos pasado una semana en familia perfecta, la casa es bonita, bien equipada, muy espaciosa y recien rehabilitada. Esta en una pequeña localidad rural muy tranquila, pero cerca de la carretera nacional que recorre la costa norte, por lo que esta bien comunicada. El jardin, la barbacoa y la piscina te permite pasar unas vacaciones perfectas. Pero sin duda los propietarios, Marta y Hermes, son los que marcan la diferencia, amables, hospitalarios, atentos, hicieron de nuestra estancia un exito. Gracias Marta y Hermes!!

Eine Traum Villa mit Stil, viel Platz für 8 Personen, Aussicht und super Poolgarten. Wir waren eine Woche dort und haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett und erfüllt jeden Wunsch.Innenausstattung und Einrichtung lassen nichts vermissen. Aufjedenfall einen Mietwagen nehmen, ist etwas außerhalb, dafür aber ruhig, super! Es gibt 2 Tavernen im "Dorf", beide Preiswert und lecker, authentisches Essen.

Lovely restored stone villa with fantastic outside space including nice pool and great facilities. Located in a quiet area with 2 taverns very close by. Well placed for a number of interesting things to see and do, including Margarites ‘pottery’ village, Arkadi monastery, Melodini caves, Rethymno, Bali and Perama. Hosts were fantastic with detailed directions to the villa, information about the area and suggestions for things to see. They met us at the villa despite our late arrival and treated us with Cretan food, sweet treats and parting gifts during our stay. We couldn’t have been looked after any better! We will be back!
