The Heraklion Prefecture region
..."Crete's Mystery is deep. Whoever sets foot on the island senses a mysterious force branching warmly and beneficently through his veins, senses his soul begin to grow"...
Pendamodi is one of the oldest villages of Crete and it is not without importance, that Stefanos Sahlikis wrote his poems there beginning this way in the middle of the 14th century, the Renaissance of Cretan and Greek literature. Today there are a few inhabitants who are well known for their hospitality and sociability.
There are two traditional 'kafenions' one of which also serves traditional 'mezes', Giorgos' "Mezedopoleion", a mix of Cretan cafe and taverna, highly recommended by our guests for his hospitality and dishes. Additionally, a selection of brilliant local taverns can be found within a few kilometres in the surrounding villages and the Christina complex modern snack café is always an alternative and on site.
The village layout, cobbled roads and stone-built houses maintain the design, architecture and structure of the old days. Conveniently located just 15 kilometers from the island's capital Heraklion, yet a million miles away from its hustle and bustle, some excellent walking country is almost on your doorstep, with the European Hiking Path passing close to the nearby village of Ano Assites, and encompassing many Byzantine Chapels, ravines, river valleys and holly forests, it is truly a place of outstanding natural beauty.

My husband and I decided to go to Crete for our first year anniversary in April 2013. Adonis and his family and friends have made our holidays one of the best holidays we have ever had! On our arrival, Giorgos greeted us at the airport and showed us the way to the villa (approx 20 minutes). There we were shown the villa and Adonis came to greet us with a nice bottle of Cretan wine and some snacks. The day after, they (Adonis and Lissimaros) came to the villa and showed us the best places in Crete to visit, they even drove us to the supermarket where we did our weekly shopping and then came back to Pendamodi where we were offered a few drinks and lovely food prepared by Giorgios, the owner of the local taverna (2 minutes walk from the villa). Brilliant food and quiet atmosphere..
The region is wonderful! Heraklion has a lot to offer, views, beaches, bars and tavernas. It is only a 20 minutes drive. There is also the ruins of the palace of Knossos just outside the city, definitely worth seeing. You also can reach the beautiful coves of Bali or Agia Pegala on the North West coast in between 30/40 minutes. If you are more adventurous, we would recommend you drive to Matala. The beach is great and you can visit the Roman caves located by the sea.
ChristinaVillas also offer a home catering service. Lissimaros is an amazing cook! We had home made tzaziki with Cretan salad, followed by greek meatballs and rice as well as a typical greek pudding (sour cherry and cream). If you want to try the local food, Lissimaros is the man!
We would highly recommend Christina Villas, which you can pair with a car rental through Zakros Group. They offer very cheap deals.
All in all, we fell in love with Crete and we will definitely be back. Adonis and family hospitality is undeniable, and they are there for you at any time. 10/10 for these holidays which we will never forget!
