Other things to note

The neighbourhood

The villa is located in the small village of ‘Pigi’, which means 'Source'. The village got its name from a source where a lot of water came out that was here centuries ago. Pigi is just above the village of Adele on the road to Arkadi monastery. It lies in a fertile area with many olive groves. The distance to the beach is about three kilometers (Pigianos Kampos). In Pigianos Kampos there are several beachfront bars & tavernas. The village is dotted with several churches, some of which were built in the period between the 11th and 15th centuries. Close to Pigi there have been many important archaeological finds. The village has a nice square with kafeneions, tavernas, a bakery and a mini-market.

The slow-moving, romantic town of Rethymno that still preserves much of its Venetian and Turkish appearance is only 7 kms away. From gourmet to traditional, Rethymno offers more than 200 eateries to choose from and also has a very active nightlife with its sea-front cocktail bars open till late in the evening.
