The picturesque seaside village of Mohlos lies on the north-east coast of Crete, 33 km east of Agios Nikolaos and the same distance west of Sitia. To get to Mochlos from Heraklion Aiport, take the National Road east to Agios Nikolaos and then the road from Agios Nikolaos to Sitia. At the 30th km of the Agios Nikolaos-Sitia road, turn left towards Mochlos at the sign for MOCHLOS. VILLA ALKESTIS is 4 km down the road, 100 metres before the village of Mochlos.

Villa Alkestis is undoubtedly the best choice for your holidays on Crete, especially if you are looking for peace and quiet in a friendly environment with a traditional flavour and modern amenities, a place with a unique view and atmosphere, which you can use as a starting-point for long or short excursions into the countryside, to picturesque villages and fantastic beaches, pretty little towns or traditional events and fiestas. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy the famous Cretan Cooking at its best in the local tavernas and buy the best agricultural and traditional products to take home with you.

  • 5 of 5

"Il contesto paesaggistico è molto bello e suggestivo mentre il paese di Molhos non ha nessuna spiaggia balneabile ed è risultato necessario spostarsi sempre in altri luoghi ad almeno una quindicina di kilometri. La casa è anche più fornita di quanto espresso nel sito, di facile accesso, ben strutturata per due famiglie, con ottimi spazi esterni, molto silenziosa e rilassante. Le pulizie vengono eseguite da una signora ogni mattina e sono abbastanza veloci e superficiali. D''altra parte i genitori del signor Yannis che vivono di fianco alla casa sono molto gentili e per tutta la vacanza ci hanno rifornito di manicaretti greci, frutti del loro splendido giardino e tutto ciò di cui abbiamo avuto bisogno."

"Excellent, the owners become friends.

Very nice land.

A "must have seen" and a "must have heard" because stylios is a well known greek musician.

Maybe the best place in Greece.
