Holiday Rental House
Villa Kalithea is one of a group of three detached villas, each set in its own garden and boasting its own private pool, and affording a good degree of privacy from each other. The villa stand on the edge of the traditional village of Pendamodi, just 15 km from Crete's island capital Heraklion and the nearest beach resorts, yet far removed in atmosphere from the busy holiday hot-spots. Villa Kalithea is arranged on two floors. The entire ground floor is open-plan (except for a useful downstairs shower room/WC) with a comfortable sitting area arranged around a feature fireplace, a dining area opening onto an L-shaped terrace and a fully equipped kitchen complete with full-size cooker, microwave oven, dishwasher and a large fridge-freezer, as well as toaster, kettle and coffee maker.

The villa is beautifully decorated and with so much room to relax. Whichever window you look out of the view is breathtaking! In a small village the people immediately make you feel welcome but Jocelyn (the owner) who lives nearby, couldn't do enough for us...More

About the neighbourhood
Pendamodi is a traditional rural village set in bucolic surroundings with spectacular mountain views. Nestling in the foothills of Crete's central mountain range, the village lies only 15km south of Heraklion, but its sleepy atmosphere could not be further from the hustle and bustle of the busy island capital. The surrounding landscape is reminiscent of Tuscany, with ancient olive groves and extensive vineyards covering gently rolling hills as far as the eye can see. Life in the local villages retains a slow, dignified pace and tourism is by no means the main focus - although those visitors who do venture here are warmly welcomed. Pendamodi's main focal point is the traditional village kafenion, just a short stroll from the villas. Offering a selection of simple dishes for those occasion...
How to get there
The villas are 15 km from Heraklion Airport. From the UK, charter flights operate from most regional airports throughout the summer season, and there are daily scheduled flights with Easyjet from London Gatwick. There are direct flights to Heraklion from most other European countries, and connections via Athens with Aegean or Olympic Airways. Travellers from North America and Australia can also reach Heraklion via Athens. Car hire can be arranged from Heraklion Airport, please contact us for detailed directions.
