The villa is nested in a green clad environment, swamped with flowers, aromatic herbs and trees, an ideal place for relaxation for grown-ups and endless games and playing for children.

Next to the villa is the vegetable garden, from which you may try some of the season's organic vegetables or taste some traditional homemade recipes with pure local products from the genuine Cretan diet.

The dishes will be cooked exclusively for you and served in the villa at the time of your choice.
Less than 500 meters away from the villa, your walk will take you to the Byzantine church of Saint George dating back to the 16th century, or the gorge that begins at the village exit. Every walk inside the infinite olive groves and the nearby hills with local flora and the unique Cretan aromatic herbs will waken all your senses.
