Are you familiar with terms like: 'rare opportunity' and 'for the select few'? Not as a selling gimmick but more as a real chance to experience something positively different than most other travelers will. If you are familiar, then you should recognize one when you see it.
Have you ever stayed at a traditional Crete Villa house before? Not any of those properties for the tourist hordes, but a real 200-year old renovated villa house, made of stone and old wood - not bricks and cement. Normally you shouldn't have. Crete people rarely open their country houses to others, they keep them to themselves and their loved ones; they have different properties that can be rented by travelers. But you may have visited such a house by accident, if any local person ever invited you to a meal or a wedding celebration.
Photos will only give you a small part of the whole experience in staying at this villa house, because most of the experience can't be framed in a snapshot. How can any photo tell you that you will be staying at a village whose origin can be traced back 2,500 years? Or that it enjoys one of the finest climates on the island? Even give you a hint on how the air smells in the morning and early evening. Or pass you the feeling of peace and tranquility in a beautiful village surrounded by hills and olive groves? Or the smell of the house's interior?
And then it's the ease of access to it that makes it a great candidate for accommodation. An ideal location for those wishing to explore the island because as we say: 'it is close to everywhere'. But it is also a great spot to stay for those who come for Business.
Just 20 minutes from Heraklion Airport (don't worry; you won't hear any planes passing over your head!) the Port and the Center. But close to Rethymnon (60 min.), Chania (90 min.) and Sitia (90 min.); the palace of Knossos is just 7 miles and so is the closest beach. And just 20 min. away from Crete Golf Course.
The village of Archanes is beautifully organized with everything you may need for your stay; you will find banks, grocery stores, taverns and everything else at walking distance from your quiet neighborhood. The house is ideal for you whether you are a group of people, a large family or a smaller family, even a couple. And we arrange it to be an exact fit to your stay, no matter if this means extra “chez long” resting chairs around the pool, or a baby cot, or whatever is necessary.
What's in the villa house? Three beautiful double bedrooms (one of them has a single bed too) two bathrooms (one with bath tub the other with a shower cabin) divided between the two floors of the house. Great furniture, a beautiful living room that connects to a smashing-looking, fully equipped and very functional kitchen and the veranda – deck with the private pool and the barbeque. There is TV in every room with satellite channels and Wireless Internet. Cleaning and linen change is taking place twice a week.
(But honestly now, ask yourself: you won't be staying in, will you?)
Make the move. Go a bit different this time; take advantage of this rare opportunity and be one of the select few who will truly enjoy their stay in Crete, at our beautiful villa house during this season. We are open all year.
We look forward to show you in!
