The space

Our Villa called Athena consists of a two-floor traditional villa of 150 (1600 sq.ft), with a spacious outdoor area and a magnificent garden, full of colors, fragrances and local flora. The combination of stone and wood, with the surrounding olive grove creates a tranquil and comfortable environment The first floor of the villa consists of two bedrooms, each with two beds. On the ground floor there is a very big living room, dining room and kitchen, together with the bathroom and fireplace. On the next floor the are two more bedrooms, with their own bathrooms. All rooms have two beds, a closet, drawers and a LCD TV. The kitchen has a coffee machine, dishwasher and all the necessary amenities of a modern kitchen The house has a laundry machine, a fireplace and of course wireless internet connection. The outdoors of the property are absolutely amazing. A well preserved garden, with a barbecue facility and a traditional stone-oven to prepare delicious meals. A lot of tables with colorful chairs and big sun umbrellas with sunbeds are there to help you relax under the Cretan sun. All this setting is surrounded by our family's century old olive grove, that gives the property a traditional Cretan touch. After all, olive oil is considered to be Crete's blood and the best quality of virgin olive oil in the world. The area is big and spacious, perfect for a family with children, in order for them to play and be close to nature's environment, Finally, the view towards the sea, the olive grove and the hills around is relaxing, while a walk towards the sea is 15 minutes away.

The neighborhood

The unique benefits of Villa Athena is its tranquil environment that makes it feel as a perfect retreat from the city, while being a 5 minute drive from anything one could miss from the city. The beauty of its gardens, the audors and colors makes the environment as relaxing as it can get. Its strategic location close to all the main roads and sights makes touring in Crete very comfortable. Together with the local tastes and drinks that you can enjoy in Crete, it feels like life cannot get any better. It is very difficult for one no to fully recharge here.

Getting around

The bus station to Iraklion city is just a 5 minute walk from the property.
We can also introduce a car rental agency to our guests that would like to rent a car. This agency has special offers for our guests with lower market rates.

Other things to note

This property is valuable for my family, because it goes back two generations. It carries with it our Cretan bloodline, our family's history and our cultural heritage. For us, and Greeks in general, family is the most important thing, it defines us in our life path. So, this property is closely linked with our memories as children, with images, fragrances, sounds and sentiments. Today, for our family this property, apart from producing our olive oil, which is the base of our diet, acts also as our retreat from the noisy and stressful city.

I am a Greek, born and raised in Athens, but have spent a lot of time in Crete - since my mother was born there. Summer and Easter times of my life has been spent on this great island...I can help you find places and moments that you will never forget!
