Villa Nikolaos is approved by Greek Tourism Organisation & managed by 'etouri vacation rental management'. Villa Nikolaos is an old farm house built more than 100 years ago. It was restored by the owners in the beginning of decade '90 with great care and attention to keeping all the traditional elements and with much personal hard work (it was not intended initially for tourist use). It is on the edge of the village, so that no one is disturbed by the presence of residents (besides it is a very quiet small village), at the same time it is still part of the village. The view is exceptional, as it is found in the brow of a steep slope that dominates among the absolute green landscape.

It is on the edge of the village, so that no one is disturbed by the presence of residents (besides it is a very quiet small village), at the same time it is still part of the village. The view is exceptional, as it is found in the brow of a steep slope that dominates among the absolute green landscape. There is a massive exterior space of 1300 sq. meters, a garden with roses and miscellaneous flowers, very large carobs, stone built terraces with a vine and fruit trees and a 32 sq. meters swimming-pool. It is situated in the best spot with amazing view. Villa Nikolaos is looked after by the owners Katerina (Keti) Zaharioudaki and Vangelis Markakis. They live in Rethymno , where they attend and 'The house of Dolphins' (' Casa dei Delfini '), an old Venetian-Turkish mansion in the centre of the old town of Rethymno, that they restored and is today a complex of five rented studios. The parents of Katerina, John and Katina Zaharioudaki live in a nearby house. They look after the garden, the flowers and the trees and they are at your disposal whenever you need them. Villa Nikolaos can accommodate 4 people in beds and up to 5 people. It has an area of 75 sq. meters on the ground floor and 55 sq. meters on the first floor. On the first floor there is also a spacious veranda of 40 sq. meters. On the ground floor there is the kitchen, the living room area with a television (free satellite channels), a fireplace and a small WC with washing machine. A wooden internal staircase leads to the upper floor where the bedrooms are. Each bedroom has air-condition, central heating (radiator) and there are timbers for the fireplace.

About the neighbourhood
Villa Nikolaos is located in the picturesque village of Ancient Eleftherna, in Rethymno Prefecture. The village is located on a high hill, surrounded by the area where the ancient city of Eleftherna was located. It is the main archaeological site of the prefecture. The archaeological site and the newly built museum of Ancient Eleftherna are worth a visit for discovering and feeling the ancient history of the area. The sea is 15 kilometres away. Nearby (11 km) is found the historical abbey Arkadi, the traditional village Margarites (5 km) with a living tradition in pottery going back 5,000 years and a lot of other small picturesque villages, that still maintain their lively colors and traditional architecture.
