Welcome to Lily’s Cottage

About us

A two bedroom (2), one bathroom (1), secluded, sea view villa with private pool!
Sleeps up to 5 persons.

Lily’s cottage features two cozy double bedrooms with very comfortable bedding and fine quality linens. In between the bedrooms is a stylish bathroom with a shower cabin. A sliding door in the hallway separates the sleeping quarters from the living room and kitchen area to ensure quiet and privacy. Mix and match furniture with ethnic tones and a modern fireplace give the spacious living room a homey feeling. The adjacent open plan kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary appliances and cookware. This north side of the house also offers unobstructed sea views of the Cretan sea and the Platanias plain. In the Southern part of the house, overlooking the olive grove, are the two bedrooms (one with a double bed and the other with an option of two singles or a double). Great consideration was given to the choise of mattresses and pillows, as we strongly believe that our primary service is to provide comfortable restful sleep. Between the two bedrooms is the bathroom that features a large shower and a washing machine. However, the great advantage of this amazing villa is really its external area. The 25m2 swimming pool invites the guests to relax on the sun beds and enjoy the sun.

The cottage is located in an olive grove in a region with the Turkish name Cesme. The position of the residence up on a hill provides unobstructed view to the Cretan Sea and the Plain of Platanias, an area with many high quality hotels, restaurants, bars, pop art shops etc. The nearest sandy beach is only 1 km away. The area is particularly suitable for guests interested in hiking. Just outside the property there is a path leading to “Maroulas”, a traditional village with Venetian color and about 5 km inland is the picturesque , green gorge of Mili with the abandoned village located by the torrent. At a distance of about 16 km lies the historic Arkadi monastery a monument of self-sacrifice in 1866 during the fight for liberation from the ottoman occupancy. In a distance of 800 meters from the property there is a bus station to Rethymno with 10 daily services. The nearest sandy beach is about 1 km from the property – about 15 minutes on foot down the hill. It is recommended however to rent a car in order to visit Rethymno whenever you wish as well as many other sites of interest all over Crete .
