About Avli Lounge Apartments

Located in the car-free medieval old town of Rethymno, this tranquil, romantic property offers an ideal setting for couples, including honeymooners, with just 10 rooms, ensuring personalized service, privacy and a peaceful stay just steps away from it all. Just a five-minute stroll away you’ll also find the city’s three-mile-long beach, Fortezza castle and the historic Venetian harbor.


Set within a 16th-century Venetian stone residence, Avli Lounge Apartments is a tiny 10-room upscale boutique hotel with an Old World ambiance centered around a leafy walled yard in the heart of old town Rethymno. The spacious suites include Venetian-period features throughout, including stone walls and the original fireplaces. Complementing the look are marble bathrooms with freestanding hot tubs, and some feature romantic four-poster beds. All have a pillowtop bed with down comforters and Egyptian cotton sheets. Guests can enjoy soaking in the mosaic-tiled hot tub while taking in the gorgeous view from the pretty rooftop terrace. Multiple dining options are included as well, with two coffee shops and two restaurants along with room service for private dining as well as three bars for sipping cocktails. The mouthwatering cuisine combines innovative cooking techniques with traditional dishes using only fresh, local produce while the extensive wine bar has its own expert sommelier.


Located in old town Rethymno. Heraklion, the ferries and airport are about a 75-minute drive east while the city of Chania is about an hour’s drive west.
