Holiday Rental House
Villa Kastalia 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. It is one of 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. 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 property has a TUV certification ISO 14001:2004 and is registered and approved by the Greek N...Villa Kastalia is just a fifty minutes’ drive from Heraklion International Airport 'N.

The property has a TUV certification ISO 14001:2004 and is registered and approved by the Greek National tourist board (EOT). Each of the three villas of around 100m2 is spread over two levels. The top level has two stylish, high beam-ceilinged bedrooms and a large modern bathroom with shower facility. The muted colours add to the light, airy and calm atmosphere. On the ground floor there is a fully equipped open planned kitchen with stylish and relaxing dining and sitting area. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 1039K91003145201More

About the neighbourhood
The historic village of Sivas, of some 500 inhabitants, mostly farmers, is 62km away from Heraklion and is built on the western slope of Asterousia mountain at an altitude of 110m looking over the valley of Messara and the beautiful blue of the south Crete sea. In 1980 Sivas was declared a 'listed traditional settlement site' by a decree of the Greek Ministry of Culture. The location of the village is ideal for exploring the world famous sites of the area like the ancient palace of Phaistos as well as other places of interest like the archaeological sites of Phaistos, Kommos, Gortyna and Agia Triada.
How to get there
The drive from Heraklion airport to Sivas takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Leave the airport area and drive straight for about 500m. At the exit 'Heraklion, Rethymnon' (in front of the bridge) turn right onto the national road. Then drive about 7 km on the highway, after about 5 km drive carefully on the right lane. Leave the highway at the exit Moires-Timbaki and then turn right again onto the exit road and over the mountains to Moires. You drive about 40 minutes through Moires in the direction of Timbaki. After approx. 5 km you will come to the sign for the excavation Faistos (Phaistos) -Kalamaki, Kamilari, Pitsidia-Matala. Here you take a left turn and follow the signs to Matala-Sivas-Pitsidia. Shortly before Sivas you pass a gas station (left). The next intersection leads left to Siv...
