Description from owner

Description

Away from crowded tourist centres and just minutes walking distance from the village square is your special hideaway. Villa Helidona lies on a side street hidden behind a wall, it is secluded and offers lots of privacy. The villa property entrance leads to an inner courtyard. Once you enter into the courtyard the main building lies in front of you and the west wing to your right.

Let the atmosphere of this beautifully renovated 19th century traditional Cretan stone house enchant you. Antique furniture, Cretan traditional furniture, original artwork and hand-woven carpets create a unique environment. This stunning and spacious home provides all the comfort you need for a great holiday.

The position of the villa allows you easily to explore the island, but many of my guests just stay at the villa for it truly peaceful here.

Location description from owner

The Heraklion Prefecture region

A right location makes the difference when you rent a holiday villa. Just 20 minutes from Heraklion airport, tucked away on the hillsides of the northern coast of Crete, you will find the village Episkopi. Come step into another world and discover Crete the way it was - the way it is meant to be. Away from crowded tourist centres and not far from the village square is your special hideaway.

Episkopi

In Episkopi people with great warmth and generosity will welcome you to Crete. This is just the right place to spend a wonderful and relaxing holiday. Tourism has hardly touched the village and “filoxenia” (Greek for hospitality) is simply the motto of Episkopi.

A tradition deeply rooted in the Cretan way of life. So being a guest here will show you first hand what Cretan hospitality really means. The village's main source of income is from agriculture. Olive groves and vineyards surround the village. Life moves with a different pace compared to the coastal tourist areas. This is Crete the way it was and the way it is meant to be.

“Experience of a lifetime.”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2016

We have just spent 2 weeks at this beautiful villa. Everything is provided for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. Situated in a traditional Cretan village, just 20 minutes from the airport we found the villa to be clean, comfortable and very well equipped with everything that we could possibly need during our stay. Enter the villa through the green gate and find yourself transported into another world. Beautifully furnished with antiques and artworks this house provides peace and privacy both inside and out. Most of our time was spent in the pool and garden area which is totally un overlooked and the only sound to be heard are the birds singing. Although we hired a car and managed to see much of the island we were always eager to return to our own special place. The local people in the village were always so friendly and welcoming, often gifting us with sweets, drinks, home produced olive oil and on one occasion a lunch of soup, grilled fish and fresh bread delivered to our door. Dimitris, the owner is always on hand if needed and could not have been more helpful, providing us with information on the island and the best places to visit. I cannot recommend enough a stay at this beautiful villa. An experience not to be missed

Dear Brenda, I am so grateful that you enjoyed your stay in Villa Helidona as well as in Crete. I will be more than happy to accommodate you again during your next trip in Crete. Best regards, Dimitris Roumeliotakis Villa Helidona
