Found 14 km east of Rethymno, is the small village of Asteri where the amazing villa Citrus is located. At a distance of 3km from the sea, this traditional and picturesque settlement overlooks the Aegean sea to the north and the highest mountain of Crete, Psiloritis, to the north east. Within a few kilometers, guests can reach the Holy Monastery of Arkadi which has become a historical symbol since the 1866-1869 revolution against the Ottoman empire.

A stronghold of Cretan history and resolution, it is a very interesting structure; externally, it looks like a fortified Venetian baroque style church, with a magnificent facade, while the interior resembles a fortress.

The powder magazine of the Monastery was set on fire to prevent the civilians from being massacred by the Turks. The surrounding areas are full of Roman relics and findings that reveal an even more salient past. Further archeological discoveries exposed the city of Ancient Eleftherna, a necropolis dating from the geometric and archaic years, plus Hellenistic and Roman buildings, Minoan settlements on the hills of Hamalevri, an ancient oil mill dating from the Roman years (2nd-3rd century AD) and cemeteries of the Classical, Hellenistic and Roman period.

Now, travellers can also visit the recently opened museum of the Eleftherna archeological site which is brimming with extraordinary finds.
