These apartments are situated at Aghios Konstantinos village, at a distance of 17,5km from the city of Rethymnon. The distance from the closest coast of the Cretan sea (Episkopi beach) is 9,5km, while from the Libyan sea (Plakias Beach) it is 20km. The closest airport and port is Akrotiri and Souda of Chania at a distance of 65 and 50 km respectively.
Agios Konstantinos is built on a wide plateau and and spreads at a magical site, full of olive trees, vineyards and locust trees, cypress trees, oak trees among others. The plateau is cut by shallow gorges where you can see platan trees, oleanders and other aquatic plants and you can rest and drink water from the numerous small and large faucets. One can be easily enchanted by the color and the smells of the area and the songs of thousands of fancy birds that peak during spring.
Agios Konstantinos existed as a settlement since ancient times, if we consider that for example in its “Acropolis”, on the location that now is the semi-ruined church of Saint Helias, there was a pre-Christianic temple of goddess Artemis. The previous temple that existed on the site of Agios Konstantinos was built on 913 AC. At the Byzantine period during the division of Crete in 12 principates (in 1182) by the emperor Alexios Komninos the 2nd, Agios Konstantinos and its surrounding district was given to Chortatzis. The village lived its best times when many noble Greeks and Venetians built there their holiday retreat properties and transformed the area into a holiday resort. Some of them had their primary residence in the village. Most known amonst them were families of Mussuri, Vlastos, Kontos, but also rich feudal lords such as the Barroccis, most famous of which was Francisco Barocci, Mathematician, Philosopher, Theologist and writer. His works still grace the Oxford Bodleian library.
The residents of Agios Konstantinos village are hospitable and enterprising, evidence of which are the numerous small businesses that exist in the village: 4 restaurants (tavernas), 3 coffee shops (kafeneion), 2 mini-markets, a butcher’s shop, a grocery store, small sausage producing units, carpenters, many agricultural and farming units .
