Villa Location
Villa Hara Faragi is located in the Cretan countryside but only a short drive from shops, restaurants and the beach. The resort of Platanias, or the larger town of Rethymnon, with its long, stretch of sandy beach and interesting, historical Venetian town, are a short drive away. The villa is perfect for those who like to walk the countryside paths leading into small, pretty, traditional villages. Our sister villa, Katia Faragi, is located next door.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There is a mini market just a short drive from the villa. Alternatively, Rethymnon is a lovely market town and Thursday is the day to head to the new part of it for the biggest market. This is the place to stock up on locally grown fruit and vegetables as well as local cheese made from sheep and goats milk. If shopping in the old town, take time to browse the alleys and back streets where traditional craftsmen still use old fashioned methods to produce Cretan boots and knives. Handmade silver and gold jewellery are also popular here.

Bars and restaurants

There is a good choice of bars and restaurants just a short drive from the villa in the village of Maroulas. Alternatively, Rethymnon has one of the best restaurants on the islands so be prepared for a feast!


Platanias Beach is just a short drive away and Rethymnon Beach is a little bit further. It's a sandy beach with several facilities including water sports, around 15 minutes' drive from the villa.

Family fun

Limnoupolis Water Park has a good variety of rides and a cafe, located just outside Chania, approximately an hours' drive away from Villa Hara Faragi. You can also try horse-riding in Georgiouopolis. Or, try the go-kart track close to the village of Pigi, which has a cafe providing shade and refreshments too.

Places of interest

The new archaeological museum in Rethymnon has exhibits from the Neolithic to the Roman periods. It's located by the Venetian Fortress which you should also visit to enjoy the magnificent sea views. Alternatively, the Monastery of Arkadi is a 30 minute drive from the villa and would make a nice day out.


The Crete Golf Club in Hersonissos, in the east of Crete, is an 18-hole course less than 2 hours' drive away.

Other activities

The village of Sfakia is on the South Coast and from here you can take one of the frequent boats to Roumeli where the Samaria Gorge ends. You can take your time and walk for a couple of miles to see the Iron Gates - the narrowest point in the gorge. For experienced hikers, walking the length of the gorge may be a more attractive challenge. Then an organised trip can be arranged.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Jean was fantastic, a credit to your company. She could not have been more helpful. Made some great suggestions for things to do knowing the forecast was not good. She also made arrangements for s walker for my mother who has mobility problems.

A wonderful villa met our expectations and more. Ideally located away from the centre but within a short drive of all amenities. Lovely views of the mountains and the sea. Beautiful balcony patio area and marvellous separate seating and BBQ area.

The villa is delightful; Costas the owner and his family made us extremely welcome. The quality of the bathroom fittings is high, there is plenty of crockery, cutlery and glasses. The pool is clean and welcoming - it is beautiful to sit by.

David Eyles, 05-May-2015

The owner of our villa was so helpful and friendly and made our holiday very special indeed, we will be visiting Villa Faragi again! I cannot fault how welcome we were made to feel and staying in the villa was an absolute luxury. Kostas is very proud of the villas he has built and it shows in the attention to detail, we were brought fresh eggs regularly by his mother and his daughter and niece brought flowers from their garden, which was a lovely gesture. Our villa rep Jean visited us and although we didn`t require her services, it was a pleasure to meet her, she gave us good information in relation to the area and places of interest to visit.
