Lovely 2 bedroom villa of 95.34m2 presented in an excellent condition on a plot of 1205.73m². It is situated in a quiet residential area, accessed along a private road, at the edge of the beautiful village of Mourne. It is a short drive to Spili and to some of the wonderful beaches along the south coast, including Agios Pavlos and Triopetra. There may be the possiblity for a small pool at the back of the property or to the side if the vegetable beds are removed.
If travelling on the road from Rethymnon to Spili and beyond, Morne is visible on the hillside both before and after Spili. There are some beautiful houses with interesting architecture probably around 250 years old and many have been beautifully restored. There is a small English speaking foreign community, so if you do not speak Greek, you will still find someone to speak to. Morne is well positioned, being only a 30 minute drive from Rethymnon and you have a fabulous choice of beaches available, all 25 -35 minutes away. To the east there are Ligres, Akoumia, Triopetra, and Agia Galini beaches. To the west you have Preveli, Skinaria, Amoudi, and Plakias. Alternatively the mountains are only a short drive away if you take the Gerakari road from Spili. There are also many pleasant walks to be had around the village or along tracks or lanes to nearby villages. A favourite walk is from Mixorouma to Frati enjoying the views of the gorge from there. There are approximately 240 inhabitants and it is 34 kms from Rethymnon and only 4kms from Spili.
In Mourne, during the summer months there are open-air concerts which host many Cretan musicians.
