Rethymnon - Maroulas / West Crete

distance distance distance distance distance

The three Great Escape Villas have been built on a steep hillside aside the village of Maroulas and completed in autumn, 2008.

The surroundings are very peaceful and include many groves of olive and fruit trees.

When continuing the road (which has been newly paved in autumn, 2009) further up, the first houses of the old village center appear after 150 meters.

The National Road from Iraklion to Rethymnon (10 kms) and further on to ▶ Hania (67 km) runs down there as well.

Iraklion airport is 89 kms away, Hania airport 74 kms. With respect to the National Road's winding character, transfer durations from and to the airports must not be underestimated.
