Two traditional, independent, stone-built apartments date back to 1810, were artfully restored in 2003, always with respect towards the traditional Cretan architecture. Abelos offers privacy, as well as the opportunity to experience relaxing holidays for ten guests with the simultaneous provision of all modern comforts.
The traditional cottages of Abelos are situated at an altitude of 300 metres from sea level, on an estate that lies in the village Roustika, a traditional, historical village where edifices from the Venetian era are still preserved, in the middle of the prefecture of Rethymnon. Abelos is ideal for families or friends, recommended for high-standard, peaceful and relaxing holidays both in the winter and in the summer.
The arrangement of the edifice facilitates the unified use of both apartments. Each apartment has its own courtyard, as well as terraces with unhindered view. The eye travels through the green of the perennial trees, relaxing with the breathtaking, distant view over the mountain chain of "Lefka Ori" and the Cretan Sea.
The advantage of this location is that there is easy access both to the north axis of the island, where the towns Rethymnon, Heraklion and Chania lie, and to the southern axis (Libyan Sea) with the superb, wind-protected beaches of Plakias, Moni Preveli, Damnoni, Ammoudi etc..
