Avli Lounge Apartments is housed in a cluster of beautiful Venetian buildings of the 16th century in Rethymnon, which brings us memories and images from other seasons.. Avli was created in 1987, in an effort to optimize and upgrade the historic center of Rethymnon city, offering the visitor a real acquaintance with the life of Crete.
Avli is a combination of all-suites hotel with restaurant, wine cellar and a shop with traditional products.
Avli features a unique blend of traditional Cretan architecture with modern luxury and aesthetic. A beautiful mansion dating back to 1660, using a brilliant combination of Cretan, Venetian and Oriental techniques, is today the "Avli Lounge Apartments" hotel. Venetian arches, works of art, crystal and porcelain are shown off against an authentic Greek background of flowers and fountains. The colours of the palette of this mysterious island lend their names to the 7 luxury and comforts suites, in the spirit of true Cretan hospitality.
The 5 great new, small suites, are added to the already grand Lounge Suites of Avli Lounge Apartments to awaken forgotten memories, hidden desires, secret weaknesses, tender childish mischievieousness.
Reflections of colorful toys and candy, delicious cakes, crispy biscuits and fresh cream pies welcome you in a fabulous, atmosphere! Colours and inspiration from candy, jellies, small cakes, lollipops and cookies, offer the visitor to Avli Candy Suites, a stay full of sweet experiences, unexpected well-being and completeness of senses...
In the living room, elegant furniture and impressive antiques are the reminder of the sophistication of the building and invite our guests to relax by reading, be passionate by playing, and learn by conversing. A stone terrace on the 2nd floor, offers the opportunity to enjoy oneself in absolute privacy with a glass of wine from the outstanding cellar of Avli Fusion Enoteca; or a bottle from the fantastic wine shop of Avli Raw Materials; perhaps a coffee or choose from the delicious delicacies of Avli’s Creative Cuisine.
