The host Mihalis is very welcoming and the property is not your average rent a house type as it is equipped in such a way as your house would be. Especially the kitchen has all the cutlery/equipment you might need to explore your cooking skills and you even have a washing machine if the need arises. Mihalis upon arrival has nice offerings for you with a bottle of wine, raki and olive oil all from his own production. The decoration is very traditional with a hint of modern and you get free fast wifi, satellite television, a huge fireplace with enough logs for 3-4 days and a nice warm atmosphere. The property is 15 min away from Rethymno center, however the village "Armenoi" has a large supermarket, a pharmacy and a couple of nice tavernas with traditional food. There is limited public transportation so renting a car is obligatory. In the summer time the surrounding area is perfect for hiking and the property has a large first floor open terrace to spend nice evening relaxing times. Because of the thick walls there is good difference from the outside temperature, nevertheless, there are new air conditioning units inside the bedrooms to meet everybody's needs.
