Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Lassithi - 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.

a comfortable holiday home at a very nice place

  • 4 of 5

The house was completly equipped and clean and the manager visited us sometimes to ask for questions. The view to the ocean was wonderful.

But it was absolutly necessary to rent a car to go to the beach or other places.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I welcome suggestions for the house in order to make it always more comfortable for our guests. I do recommend a car; Mochlos is off the beaten track and that is an essential part of its charm!

parfait

La location était parfaite avec tous les équipements nécessaire, une vue magnifique. Les propriétaires sont charmants et très serviables (la climatisation n'a pas fonctionné une fois, réparé dans la journée)

Je recommande cette location!

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).
