Where you’ll be

Agios Pavlos, Greece

Villa White Hera is located in the unspoilt area of Agios Pavlos, a great spot for anyone who wants to experience true Crete and really get away from it all. South Crete is known for its unspoiled landscape and this is certainly what you will experience in the area surrounding Villa Hera.

An area of outstanding natural beauty, it is recognised for beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters. The closest large beach is Agios Pavlos where you will also find a traditional taverna and small mini market. Beyond the main beach of Agios Pavlos lies the beautiful sand dune beach, its real calling card. Agia Galini is the closest established village (14kms) and has all the amenities you need during your stay, including supermarkets, bakery, pharmacy, cafes, tavernas and shops, all sprinkled within the charming narrow streets and harbour area.

The area around the villa is totally natural and quiet, so you will be able to relax and feel “away from it all” from the moment you arrive. It is the perfect location if you wish to stay away from the tourist areas of Crete. If you like to explore, the villa is a great base from which to discover the unique natural environment of inland Crete. Explore villages, interact with the locals, find taverns with real Cretan cuisine and discover some totally isolated beaches!

Additionally, the well known village of Spili is around 30 minutes away. The picturesque mountain village has cafes, tavernas and a pretty square famous for its lion's head fountains. It is also well known for its handcrafted goods.

The town of Rethymno is within an hour's drive. Famous for its beautiful Venetian and Turkish Architecture, the old town is truly beautiful to explore. Rethymno Fortress stands as the proud protector of the town which is home to fabulous restaurants, shops, cafes and museums

For those interested in archeology, the Minoan palace of Phaestos (32kms), famous for the Phaestos disc, and summer palace of Agia Triada (32kms) are interesting sites to explore and still maintain their original integrity. A little further afield lies the archeological site of Gortyna, once an important city in Crete, especially during the Roman era. There is so much to enjoy around the area if you can tear yourself away from this amazing villa.

The south coast is famous for its array of wonderful beaches, all offering crystal clear waters and some great snorkelling opportunities.

There are a couple of small beaches close to Villa Hera but the nearest larger beach is Agios Pavlos beach. The main beach is a beautiful bay but be sure to walk beyond the bay to find the second beach of this amazing area which is famous for its sand dunes and is something not to be missed.

Triopetra beach is only a stone’s throw away and definitely worth a visit. Two wide sandy beaches, they are separated by a small peninsula. At the edge of the peninsula, in the sea, three majestic rocks rise. Triopetra is named after these rocks, since it means “Three Rocks”. On the beach there are a few rooms and taverns, and umbrellas are offered.A sweeping stretch of sand, it is named after the 3 rocks which rise proudly from the sea and has a few tavernas.

Ligres is a secluded, beautiful, sandy beach with a nudist area right at its end. Very nearby there are taverns where you can taste fresh fish of the area and local meals. Do not forget to visit the neighbouring Agia Fotia beach with its small tavern on the water.

Agia Galini has 2 stretches of sand and pebble beach and offers a good swimming opportunity if you are visiting.

Preveli beach is a beautiful sandy beach famous for its palm trees. Here, the mouth of the river Kourtaliotis empties into the sea. Stroll up the side of the river to discover the true beauty of Preveli - amazing rock pools in which to take a refreshing dip! Park just before Preveli Monastery (also worth a visit) and follow the track down to the beach. It is a 15 minute walk downhill - don’t forget you also need to walk back up!

Matala beach is located at the exit of a small valley, which forms a large enclosed bay with great views of Paximadia Island. The bay is fine shingle and has crystal clear deep water. The beach is very well organised with umbrellas, toilets, showers and tavernas and cafes.

A little further afield but well worth the journey, the beaches of “Schinaria”, “Damnoni”, “Souda” and “Plakias" are simply beautiful. All are organized and have tavernas or a cafe. Crete is a magical island , just waiting to be discovered.

ETOURI is located in 8 I. Petichaki Str. Rethymno, Crete and is approved by the Greek Tourist Organisation.

The founder - Kostas Vasilakis, who studied Economics and Marketing, got involved with the vacation rental industry 10 years ago since his father built one of the first holiday villas in Crete. Immediately he understood that conventional vacation rental agencies were focusing more on increasing the number of bookings by adding more villas in their portfolio than helping the owner of each villa to operate better or guests to have truly great experiences. He started ETOURI and made goal of his life to make this company DIFFERENT. A company with first priority: the 5 star reviews - totally satisfied guests and not the number of bookings - with believing in his philosophy that the success and having higher number of bookings will follow if we spend time for our guests and assist them to make even one day of their holidays better. Kostas invented many aspects of managing vacation rentals, creating methods and procedures and now he is considered one of the pioneers in the business.

ETOURI operates as a vacation rental management company providing more than just an accommodation service. A team of consultants check the villas, guide the owners and create experiences with a wide range of services according to the needs of every individual guest.
ETOURI has the full management of all the vacation rentals that it represents, knowing everything about them and the areas in which they are located. Along we have a list of exclusive services to provide a complete holiday experience on top of our support and concierge service.
-----------
The past 10 years, ETOURI has been established as the industry standard in Crete due to its early adoption of innovative methods of promotion and introduction of exclusive customer services. ETOURI has built a network of partners, customers and tools that elevated its flexibility, productivity and results in the industry. ETOURI’s success opened the road to other individuals and companies to approach its methods and overall develop and upgrade the complete industry in Crete.
-----------
Today it goes one step further by creating the “Holiday Advisor” concierge service with:
- 24 hr phone service available during the stay
- using a phone at the villa
- like the reception desk in hotels, plus more online tools such as “login page” for travellers and villa owners to offer easier customer experience and much more to come…
