Holidays in the traditional Greek villages
It is a complex of three stone-built villas, each given a name from Greek mythology: the Muse Erato and the Nymphs Dafne and Kastalia. The complex, situated at the foot of the village, offers a panoramic view of the Messara valley and the distinctive blue of the south Cretan sea in the distance.
This peaceful location can become your springboard for exploring the historical sites and places of unique beauty in the area. You can choose between staying in and relaxing around the pool, hopping off on a few minutes drive to the world famous archaeological site of Phaistos, or enjoying the wonderful golden-sand beaches of Matala and Kalamaki. The serenity of the environment, the dry and healthy climate of the area as well as the local food specialities guarantee an unforgettable stay.
The complex was constructed using authentic materials by local craftsmen following the traditional architecture of rural Crete in order to perfectly blend in with the environment and be an integral part of the settlement. The three villas were built in different levels offering independency, privacy and uninterrupted views of the surroundings. A lovely 40m2 pool of 1,5m depth situated in the center of the complex, can be enjoyed by guests of all three villas.
Each villa was designed with care to offer its guests every possible modern amenity.
The villas can be rented individually or can be booked together to accommodate bigger parties.
Phaistos Villas is just a fifty minutes’ drive from Heraklion International Airport "N. Kazantzakis" to the south of Crete, at the outskirts of the picturesque village of Sivas.
