Situated on the north coast of Crete and 17 km away from Rethymno, the third largest town of the island, the historic village of Skouloufia is located almost equal distance of the international airports of Chania (CHQ) and Heraklion (HER).

This charming village is surrounded by nature paths, perfect for exploring the stunning scenery of Cretem and the long sandy beach of Stavromenos is just 7km away.

Rethymno itself is a beautiful town, with bustling shops and restaurants, as well as a picturesque beach. You’ll find the renowned Venetian Harbour filled with coloured fishing boats and lined with tavernas, bars and restaurants. Look out for places serving freshly-caught seafood or classic Greek dishes like souvlaki (tender cuts of meat) and moussaka.

The Sacred Monastery of Arkadi is closely connected to the village of Skouloufia, located about a 15-minute drive from the villa. This holy spot is a peaceful oasis of golden stone buildings and flower-filled courtyards. From here, you can walk through fields and meadows to the village of Pikris and stop for lunch.

Melidoni Cave is also a must visit; a place of stunning, natural beauty and great historical interest. This ancient, beautiful and decidedly spooky cave with its terrible history is well worth exploring, full of stalactites and a small alter that speaks eerily of the past. The entry cost is very affordable, ideal for an afternoon trip.

The ancient town of Elefterna and its brand new museum, is also located just 3 km away. In this way Skouloufia offers the perfect base for exploring this ever-fascinating island of Crete.
