Villa Location
Villa Katia Faragi is perfectly located for those wishing to have a countryside location but with a short drive to all the resort amenities. Taking the road back down the hill, a short drive will bring you to the resort of Platanias with its many restaurants, shops and bars, or the larger town of Rethymnon with its long, stretch of sandy beach and interesting, historical venetian town. The area is perfect for those who like to walk the countryside paths leading into small, traditional villages. Our sister property, Villa Hara Faragi is next door.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There are a good number of shops in Platanias, just a short drive away. Alternatively, you can get your daily essentials in the nearby resort of Rethymnon, a little over 3 miles away. Thursday is market day in Rethymnon, which is situated in a square just off the old town selling a variety of locally grown produce and food you would probably never see in the UK! The fish, olives and cheese stalls alone make your mouth water just by the sight of them. There are also many non-food stalls, selling everything from clothes and household items to car parts.

Bars and restaurants

The area of Platanias is a long street lined with many shops, tavernas and bars where you can enjoy amazing Cretan specialities such as Apaki (salted and smoked pork meat) and snails in tomato stew.


Platanias Beach is just 1¼ miles away and is a great sandy beach with beautiful clear water. You can hire sun loungers and have great swims in the sparkling clean sea. You can also have a ride on a banana boat, and get some parasailing experience.

Places of interest

A very short drive will bring you to the historical town of Rethymnon with its venetian historical influence and pretty old harbour. The nearby area of Maroules is a picturesque village set above the bay of Rethymnon and is a UNESCO heritage site and features 2 watchtowers from the venetian era. The cobbled streets and stone pathways lead to pretty whitewashed houses and the village has a few local tavernas and shops.


Crete Golf Club is situated on the east of the island near to Hersonissos, a couple of hours drive from Villa Katia Faragi.

Other activities

For those who enjoy walking the villa is close to the areas of Milli Gorge, St Anthony Gorge and of course, for the more adventurous, there is Imbros Gorge which is just over 4 miles in length.


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.
