The traditional old mountain village of Roustika, 20 km inland from Rethymno, is the relaxing and authentic setting for this restored House, and along with a monastery, a museum of traditional costumes, and an old church, the village has a few nice Cretan tavernas and kafenions. The area is ideal for mountain-biking and trekking tours through beautiful gorges richly clothed in diverse vegetation. Within close proximity of Roustika there are many places of unique natural beauty to visit such as the ancient town of Lappa, the springs of Argiroupoli and the lake of Kournas. The beautiful south coastal beaches of Plakias, Preveli, Damnoni, Shoinaria and Ammoudi, all approximately 12 Km away, are within easy reach via scenic mountain roads.

Each apartment has its own courtyard, as well as sun terraces with unhindered views over the perennial trees, the magnificent mountain chain of Lefka Ori, and to the sea in the distance. There is a shared swimming pool of 50sqm in size, as well as a barbeque.
