About the property

Kallisti Villas, Heated pool!

According to greek mythology, three goddesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite fought for the Apple of Discord. Τhe apple bore the inscription “Kallisti", which translates “To the Prettiest One”. The goddesses petitioned Zeus to make the final decision of who should get the apple, but Zeus pointed Paris. Each of the goddesses attempted to sway his opinion in their favour. Hera promised Paris political power, Athena offered war victories, but clever Aphrodite pledged him the most beautiful woman on Earth, so she got the Apple of Discord.

In the beautiful village of Kyriana, close to the lively town of Rethymno, Kallisti Villas, three brand new, luxurious Villas that overlook the cretan country, will also make your choice difficult, as to which one you should be your loved one for this summer.

Great facilities, superb service, close to Rethymno

  • 5 of 5

The villas have great, new facilities and are well designed/laid out. The cleaner attended twice during our 10 night stay, cleaning and leaving some home cooked food on one occasion! Pool was good, DVD player useful to entertain kids and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils. Washing machine worked well and the outside area was good for shade and sun. Would have been good if instructions for the jacuzzi were available - but we eventually got it going.

Great house, great views, great holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4) had a perfect week in Villa Hera. Temperature was between 22-26 degrees for the whole week, making our stay even more perfect. When we arrived the host Kostas was there with some local delicacies making the start of our holiday complete. The house was fabulous: brand new, big, 2 bathrooms, complete kitchen, private swimming pool. What you can't see from the pictures: there is also a small back garden at villa Hera. In this garden you can catch the morning sun and I guess it must be nicely shaded when summer hits in full. We used the outside fireplace for a nice bbq. The airconditioning could also be used as heater, which was comfortable during the first evenings and mornings. Behind the block of rental holiday houses there was a trampoline and table tennis. Kostas was available for all our questions during the week. The village itself is authentic; there is also a small shop. Such a nice and hospitable people, very warm! Valia from the rental agency assisted us very well right from the start and advising in where to go etc. Also during and after the stay she kept in touch. Thank you Valia and Kostas for enabling this perfect holiday for our family, I will surely recommend it to the people I know!

Best regards, Barbara

Fantastic Villa With Great Views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very clean and looked exactly as it does in the photos but the views are even better than expected.

Mr Kostas met us at the villa and gave us a fabulous welcome with a quick tour of the grounds, some information about the area and some ridiculously good food and of course, some raki.

There are three local supermarkets withing walking distance but I would recommend hiring a car for trips to the main town, beaches and

some of the absolutely superb restaurants that are dotted around the surrounding hills.

Excellent all round and all around - the only downside is only the distance to the beach but a 10/15 min drive is worth it for the views and the villa.
