A place created by the gods
On a hill between Kalamaki and Kamilari, with a beautiful view down to the bay of Kalamaki (which is just 1.5 kilometres away), to the rich Messara plain and the Ida massive, situated amidst an olive grove "“ that's where you find our holiday villas. They are surrounded by 400 m² of gardens with green and a large number of flowers.
When you are watching the undescribable spectacle of the sun setting in the Lybian see while sitting on the large terrace, you will wish you could stay at this place forever! Built in traditional Cretan style, with a combination of stone and wood, the villas not only offer an incomparably atmosphere, but they are also furnished very comfortably to make the holiday a wonderful experience. Particularly in the spring the surroundings are spangled with wild flowers and fragrant herbs. A holiday at this place means an exquisite experience at the island of Crete, far away from mass tourism "“ a quiet location in a lovely environment, which is the starting point for many tours and short trips to the numerous fascinating places on the island. These houses are appropriate for families who are looking for a quiet place in a natural environment. Those who have enjoyed an individual holiday in one of the houses will be inspired by the ambience, the location and the equipment and will definitely come back!
The villas with their special character have been built and furnished with greatest attention to the traditional details in architecture. They are sufficient for 2-8 persons. All villas are neighbouring houses, but yet unattached. Twice a week, the houses are cleaned and towels as well as bed linens are changed.
The 3 larger houses "ISMINI", "ANTHIPPI" and "ANTIGHONI":
On opening the main door you find yourself in a spacious fully equipped kitchen and living room featuring a beautiful stone made fireplace. A stone arch leads you to the bedrooms "“ the main bedroom has a double bed and the second bedroom has 2 bunk beds. The spacious bathroom has bathtub/Jacuzzi, shower and WC.
They are equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, air-conditioning/heating, satellite TV, hair dryer and ironing board.
Every house has its own swimming pool, separate children pool and whirlpool.
The smaller house is similar but does not have a fireplace, washing machine, dishwasher, bathtub/Jacuzzi or swimming pool. The studio architecturally belongs to Villa "ANTIGHONI" but has a separate entrance and terrace.
To have space for 8 or 9 persons, it is possible to get the studio "ORESTIS" and "ANTIGHONI" in combination.
The villages of Kalamaki and Kamilari represent Crete as its finest. The small, typically Cretan village Kamilari with its 400 inhabitants is situated west of the link road between Phaistos and Matala. Four kilometres further down the road to the seaside, one arrives in the village of Kalamaki with its beautiful beach. Here the Cretan originality has been preserved, but yet the village offers tourist life.
In this area, the sea, the beach, and the picturesque landscape are unified to create a holiday experience of an extraordinary quality. Sunny days, beaches stretching over miles, turbulent Greek market scenes, endless, desolate mountain ranges, and not least the almost incredible openness and hospitality of people are waiting for holidaymakers to come here.
The nature of this region is particularly attractive in the months of Winter and Spring. Even on short trips and walking tours you will find a magic vegetation with unique flowers and officinal plants which only grow at that time of the year and which give the hills their beautiful silky green colour.
In contrast to the more tourist-like, active North, the Southern part of the island is largely untouched. Here, the Greek life is much more natural and the climate more mediterranean. Former, but also still existing monasteries as well as ancient ruins, caves and old villages which can be found all over the country, offer the traveller new opportunities for interesting excursions over and over. Visits to old places of cultural interests, such as the palaces of Knossos and Phaistos with their history that is more than 5000 years old, will remain unforgettable. Among the outstanding regional specialities is the Samaria gorge, the Lassithi plateau and not least the mighty massives, which rise from the sea up to levels of 2,500 metres and which are partly accessible only by narrow ballast paths. The landscape shaped by the meditteranean climate offers a variegated vegetation, where fresh water springs bring up oases of fertile flora in the dry Summer months.
