Description

Villa 5 Anemoi, located in Lefkogia village, a bizzare combination of an spectacular mountain scenery and wonderful beaches, one after the other forming the marvellous coastline of South Crete! Four out of the numerous beaches are in a distance of 2 km away from villa. And it goes on and on! An authentically old, enchanting spacious house, build 130 years ago, renovated in 2008. What you will mostly love about it is that it breaths out an ambience that is going to make you feel like traveling through time to the past century! Its distinctive style, due to its peculiar structure with the stone and the wood as its dominant structural components, the traditional hand made furniture, all its entrances and exits from everywhere), its inveteracy, all these together give to the house a very special character! Nothing superfluous or extravagant in it. An elegant house through its simplicity! Life should be that simple...

It can comfortably host up eight to nine persons. Due to its massive walls the house will stay at comfortable temperatures even in mid summer. The kitchen is on the ground floor with direct access on the terrace, and a window overlooking the garden.

And then again one level above the dining room follows the spacious living room (with a fire place and a sofa) that has also its own access on the terrace. Two bathrooms, both with shower rooms, (one of them, external, has direct access on the terace too. And finally right opposite to the kitchen's door there is an adjacent room that used to be grandma's old kitchen, yet after the renovation it has been reformed into a lovely bedroom which seems to be particularly appealing to our youngets guests who probably perceive it as a cave or castle due to its stone walls!

On the upper floor you will find 3 bedrooms, accessible from the exterior but also from the interior staircase. Two of them with a double bed, and the 3rd one with two single beds (Camp beds or cots can be added if needed in the two bedrooms).

Location description from owner

The Rethymnon Prefecture region

The village of Lefkogeia is located at the south coast of Crete. It is a quiet picturesque village close to the lively fisherman town of Plakias and within 25 kms south of the city of Rethymno. Villa 5 Anemoi is surrounded by beautiful and spectacular mountain scenery. Due to its location, it is an excellent starting point for excursions in the south and also to the northern parts of the island. If you are keen on discovering more secluded scenery there are lots of opportunities for both short rambles and demanding treks.

Lefkogia

In about two km distance there are some of Crete most beautiful beaches with turquoise crystalclear water like Ammoudi, Ammoudaki, Klisidi, Schoinaria, Damnoni and Paligremnos, and even more places waiting to be explored, as well as beaches accessible only by boat.The gorge of Kourtalioti is renowed for its wild beauty. Discover its enchanting secrets and enjoy the lush nature and the astonishing view down the rocks!!! The Kourtalioti river diverts into five brooklets, forming ponds, dropping down waterfalls, meeting again, passing the palm tree forest of Preveli to finally flow into the Libyan Sea.Another interesting outing is a visit of the monastery of Preveli, located high above the jagged coastline with great panoramic view.
The monastery of Preveli was founded in the 16th century, since then it played an important role as spiritual, cultural and political centre, well known beyond the natural borders of Crete.The footpath down to Preveli Beach starts high on a cliff, another path is leading to further beaches towards the east where two tavernas can be found as well.The unusual folcloristic and historic museum of Papa Michalis in Asomatos brings previous centuries back to live. Learn about cretan history from times of the turkish occupation until today, imagine what live may have been like a hundred years ago in a mountain village.

“Le charme et l'hospitalité greques”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2016

Nous connaissons les propriétaires,Betty et Hlias depuis quelques années,car cela fait pas mal de temps que nous bourlinguons à Lefkogia.Nous avons déjà séjourné dans leur petit appartement,charmant aussi et quasi voisin de la villa d'ailleurs,mais cette année avons passé un mois dans la villa et n'avons pas du tout été déçus,bien au contraire. Betty s'occupe de ses hôtes d'une manière sensationnelle et Hlias est toujours là pour vous rendre service et vous filer les bonnes adresses de cette belle région qui n'en manque pas,d'ailleurs. L'édifice allie le charme des vieilles pierres au confort total. La villa est située idéalement en bordure du village,vous n'êtes donc pas isolés mais au calme. À 200 mètres, vous avez le supermarché pittoresque mais qui offre tout ce que vous pourriez avoir besoin,et les tavernes tenues par des gens compétents,souriants et généreux. C'est un endroit où vous vous trouverez dans une ambiance typique de village,rien à voir avec les usines à touristes de Chersonissos et compagnie. Les voisins,pour peu qu'on le désire sont très contents de discuter un moment et d'échanger avec quelqu'un comme moi,qui s'essaye au grec et qui galère( ils doivent bien rigoler mais ont l'air d'avoir du plaisir à ce que l'on s'essaye dans la langue d'Homère et de Demis Roussos).Il faut aimer cette ambiance dépaysante et typique et il est très facile de lier connaissance avec tout le monde.

“Perfect house, perfect holiday!”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2015

We were a party of six staying for one week. We were met by Betty who showed us the house and made us welcome. We had already shared several emails prior to the trip and by the time we met it felt like we were meeting an old friend. We all loved the house with it's great charm and character but didn't take advantage of all it offered. We never set foot in the sitting or dining room neither did we venture into the lawned garden area but these facilities would be great in not so good weather. There was a shady central courtyard area with a large table and chairs and this is where we congregated to sit and plan our day have breakfast, read, play cards and relax and chat with a drink or two. The kitchen was well equipped and as three keen cooks in the party we intended to cater more for ourselves but ended up mostly eating out in the local tavernas, all of which were good. We did buy lots of fish one night which we cooked on the gas BBQ. The village is lovely and worth exploring the little lanes and saying hello to the locals as well as using the local mini market and cafés. An evening spent at the farm of Betty and Ellias was one we will remember, where we were treated to great hospitality and lots of laughs while watching the glorious sun set behind the mountains in stunning surroundings. This was a special holiday spent with my family and it certainly didn't disappoint but was sadly too short and I wished I had booked longer. We explored the local beaches where we swam in crystal clear seas and ventured into Retymno and Spilli but other than that we didn't do much, didn't go far..........perfect! Betty we will return!Xx

I hope you will! I will be waiting for you! I am very glad I met you and got the chance to accommodate you. You are such a lovely family, and we also enjoyed our evening together! We definitely shared some good laughing, didn't we? It is true that I also felt as I was expecting friends! And you are right... It was due to our previous correspondence! It does make you look forward to meeting the people you are expecting... Thank you, Jane, for taking the time to write such a nice review.
