Location description from owner

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"...

N. Kazantzakis

Pendamodi

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.

“Ideal for families and couples”

Reviewed 5 Dec 2012

The amenities and the equipment of the villa were really good: like home! Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, toster, large fridge, etc. The villa had parking, private pool and garden, as also fireplace and air conditioning. Finally it had even Playstation!!! For our great convenience, as we were travelling with two babies, it had also baby cot and baby chair + washing machine. Pendamodi is a traditional village, close enough to Heraklion (15 minutes by car which we rented), where one can relax while being close to the capital Heraklion. At the taverna close to the villa, we have had the best meetballs in Crete! The staff were friendly and was willing to help. The most impressive was the private chef of the villa, who showed us two cretan recipes! Concluding, the price was very good considering the quality and the amenities of the villa.
