Villa Location
Villa Terpsy is located in the countryside, although Rethymnon and the beach are both less than 2 miles away. There is a good choice of eateries and shops in the resort centre but don't stop there, there's so much to see and experience just a little further afield, such as the popular resort of Herakalion to the east and the white mountains to the west. Whatever you decide, you shall be spoilt for choice on your holiday. Our Villa Kastellaki is next door.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Rethymnon is a lovely market town and Thursday is the day to head to the new part of town 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. Actually, one of the best restaurants on the island is located in Rethymnon so prepare for a food feast!


Rethymnon has a sandy beach with several facilities including water sports, around 10 minutes' drive from the villa.

Family fun

Limnoupolis Water Park has a good variety of rides and a cafe and is located just outside Chania, approximately an hours' drive away from Villa Terpsy. Alternatively, horse-riding is available in Georgiouopolis so you may want to consider a sunset ride along the beach. Or, try the go-kart track close to the village of Pigi, which has a cafe providing shade and refreshments too.

Places of interest

If you're visiting Rethymnon town, don't miss the new archaeological museum with 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. Or, the Monastery of Arkadi is a 30 minute drive from the villa and would make a nice day out. Alternatively, the lake of Kournas is the only freshwater lake on the island and in the summer as the water recedes, a sandy fringe of beach appears. Ducks, Canada geese and other birds have made their home here and the rare Diamondback terrapin might also be spotted.


The Crete Golf Club in Chersonisos, 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 those 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.

Emma Harrison, 12-May-2015

The villa was exceptional, so much so, that it is the best villa I have stayed in. The villa is very private, not overlooked at all. The scenery and views are spectacular, in particular the sunrise. The grounds were lovely and clean to. Our rep was also very informative and reassuring. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone.

Customer Rating


Sarah Cooke, 19-Aug-2014

Villa Terpsy is a lovely, comfortable villa. The kitchen is excellently equipped. The location, the privacy of the villa (no-one overlooks you), the shaded eating area, the bbq area, the large lounge, the well equipped bedrooms, all add up to make it a really lovely villa, which is enhanced by it being more of a Cretan style. The rep, Jean, was extremely helpful and very informative. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa.

Gordon Shaw, 24-Jun-2014
