SPACIOUS GROUP OF HOUSES & APARTMENTS, PEACEFUL VIEW OF SEA AND ISLAND, PARKING

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Mochlos - Vaia Villas

Vaia Villa’s houses and apartments are surrounded with flowers, herbs, and natural beauty, and located in a peaceful, clean area with private parking. With a coffee or beer on the shaded front porches, you will enjoy watching the sunrise and sunset, the beautiful reds and purples colouring the cliffs on the opposite side of the bay. Fresh air and sea breezes, and perhaps a walk in the hills, will awaken your appetite for a dinner of fresh fish and locally grown vegetables at one of the village tavernas. Some of the best fish in Greece is caught by local fishermen. If you are an early riser, you may even see your dinner arriving! Several beaches, some pebble and some sand, offer places to swim or relax near the village. Special celebrations take place in the village at Easter time and you are welcome to join in. The people are very friendly and the village offers much hospitality all year round. In the fall, olives and grapes are harvested and oil and raki (the local spirit) is made.

Beautiful bay view from the terrace

  • 5 out of 5
We like this place very much. Even in high season, this was a nice and quitte place close to the sea with several local tavernas ang good food. There is a wonderfull terace to sit, drink wine and look on the sea and mountains surrounding it.
It is also very convenient base to explore eastern Creta, but you need a car. An offroad is recomeded to reach empty beaches, remote archeological sites and mountains.
However if you like bussy night live and do not like quitte location go somewhere else.
Eleanor is very good host. She is easy going and providing us with all we need.
Thank you Eleanor for very nice vacation stay.

A wonderful memory

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this cottage for two weeks a few years ago. We've often thought of coming back for months - may even do it when we retire. Eleanor is a great hostess and the tavernas and other amenities in Mochlos are wonderful, without distracting from the restful atmosphere.

Wunderschön

  • 5 out of 5
Die kleine Villa liegt in einem kleinen Fischerdorf schön gelegen auf einem Berg mit tollen Bick über die ganze Bucht. Hier kann man die Ruhe geniesen und den Einheimischen bei der Arbeit zusehen. Sehr empfehlenswert für Urlauber, die Ruhe suchen. Von hier aus kommt man gut in alle größeren Orte auf der Insel. Auto ist Voraussetzung. Die Vermietung sind Superfreundlich. Alle 3 bis 4 Tage gab es neue Bettwäsche und Handtücher. Wir waren bestimmt nicht das letzte Mal dort.

Mochlos is a small fishing village with several taverns and several small shops. Remains of a Bronze age town are visible on the island opposite the town. In the sea near the village, fish tanks dating to the Roman era are visible. During the summer months, archaeologists conduct an excavation on the island, providing more information on the local history, which goes back almost continuously for over 4000 years! Special celebrations are held at Easter and you are welcome to participate. Olives and grapes are harvested in the fall, and then the production of oil and raki, the locally manufactured liquor, begins. Be sure to sample the oil, the raki, and don't forget the local red wine!

Other Activities: Diving is available at a nearby hotel (25 min. away) and golf is available at the new course near Hersonissos (40 min away).
