Description of The Villa

Skouloufia village is an ideal point for anyone who is looking for interesting paths, as the big sandy beach of Stavromenos, in distance of 8 kilometers. The monastery of Arkadi, with a history, that is closely connected to the village. Anyone who visits Skouloufia, should definitely visit the Cavern of Melidoni too, which has big archaeological speleological and historical interest. Also the ancient town of Elefterna, that is located 3 km from Skouloufia. Ancient Eleutherna is one of the capital cities of ancient Crete. In 2010 Eleutherna was placed among the TOP 10 discoveries of the World.

In the village there are many traditional cafes and tavernas, which are close enough to the streambed that has a lot of plants.

Ancient Eleutherna is one of the capital cities of ancient Crete with a history of about 5000 years (3000 BC-1300 AD).

Situated on the NW ridges of the highest Cretan mountain, Mount Ida, the city stands out like a huge stoned ship that anchored amid the breathtaking silvery-green of the olive-trees, oaks and vineyards. Thousands of people have lived on this hill in the course of history but the most important period was the Early Iron Age (phone number hidden) BC), i.e. the period of the Homeric epics (Iliad and Odyssey).

The verses of this great poet, Homer, are illustrated by the history and especially the funerary customs unearthed in Eleutherna’s most important necropolis at Orthi Petra (i.e. Standing Stone).

Thousands of artifacts –made of gold, silver, bronze, iron, clay, glass, faience etc.– of unique artistic and historical importance will be the focus of this lecture, vividly proving the interconnections between Eleutherna and the other Cretan cities as well as with the Aegean, the Dodecanese, Asia Minor, Cyprus, Phoenicia, Syria and the Near East, Egypt and the central Mediterranean (including possibly Sicily and Etruria).

It should be noted that in 2010 Eleutherna was placed among the TOP 10 discoveries of the World by the Archaeology Magazine
