Situated on the north coast of Crete and 8 km away from Rethymno, the 3 rd largest town of the island, the historic village of Maroulas is located at equal distance of the international airports of Chania (CHQ) and Heraklion (HER).
The lively small town of Platanias and its long (17 km) sandy beach is only 3 km away from your holiday home in Crete.
The Venetian village of Maroulas has a few taverns and cafenions, and, 1 km away, you will find a large grocery store open 24 hours a day.
Slightly off of the center of the village, your holiday villa, combining charm and tranquility, is the ideal starting point to discover the island. Your host will be pleased to advise you exclusive routes and original outings.
A public bus service insures the link with Rethymno but a rental car is anyway strongly advised.
