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.

Séjour à Mochlos

  • 5 of 5

Juillet 2015: nous venons de passer deux semaines extraordinaires dans la maison de Eleanor Huffman. Le cadre est magnifique, la terrasse offre une vue splendide sur la mer et sur les falaises aux couleurs stupéfiantes.

La maison dispose de tout le confort nécessaire et nous avons beaucoup apprécié le changement régulier du linge de maison.

Mochlos est un charmant petit village de bord de mer; cependant, une voiture est indispensable pour visiter les alentours et découvrir quelques criques enchanteresses!

Nous avons hâte de revenir et découvrir la région à une autre saison.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive comments and feedback! We have added screen to the window closings and some of the houses have mosquito nets in addition to the screen. Usually we do not have many mosquitos, but it only takes one. All the best, Eleanor

Love Mochlos

We've stayed in several of these villas. The view is amazing, the villas are well equipped & the owners are very helpful. Mochlos is beautiful with a good choice of taverna's all on the sea. We look forward to staying here again.

Wir (Ehepaar 56/55, Sohn 15) verbrachten drei äußerst reizvolle Wochen in Mochlos. Bezüglich des Hauses als auch der Umgebung wurden unsere Erwartungen mehr als erfüllt. Der Kontakt zum Vermieter war sehr nett, sämtliche Wünsche (auch über das Haus hinaus) wurden prompt und zuverlässig erfüllt.Die Einrichtung ist geschmakvoll und funktionell. Ausreichend Gartenstühle und Strandliegen sind vorhanden.

Verschiedene Strände oder bezaubernde Buchten, andere "Highlights " sind gut zu erreichen.

Ein sehr epfehlendes Haus für alle Generationen (vielleicht nicht unbedingt mit Kleinkind) in einer traumhaften Umgebung! Ein Ort an dem man das Gefühl hat dass das Wort "Arbeit" ein Fremdwort ist.

In Mochlos, gut zu Fuß erreichbar, gibt es ausgezeichnete Tavernen, malerisch am Hafen gelegen.

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).
