The original Crete


The area (province of Rethymno) is very old, beautiful and belongs to the Milopotamosvallei. Here we have authentic Crete and in the immediate vicinity of the houses the typical Cretan villages of Livadia, Zoniana and Kalyvos. Here live many shepherds, who work with their sheep and goats into the mountains. There is delicious homemade cheese and raki. A fifteen minute drive away is Anogia, very famous for its fierce resistance in the second world war and the handmade rugs.

Olive trees and rugged mountains

The country is characterized by sheep and olive trees, old churches and there are beautiful walkingpaths. Especially trips to the Ida mountain are very worthwhile. Tourism is still in its infancy, allowing guests to enjoy peace, quiet and the famous local cuisine and homemade wines. 

Classic village of Axos within walking distance

Axos is a beautiful, traditional Cretan village with a nice square where delicious spring water can be drunk. It is built against a hill and has considerable charm. There are seven Byzantine churches, more than 1000 years old. The people are very hospital. Axos is a 20 minutes walk. Nearby are the beautiful caves of Melidoni and Zoniana (Sendoni Cave) and the beautiful monastery of Diskouri 
500m from the villas.
