Villa with Private Pool and Mountain Views
|Address||Eparchiaki Odos Irakliou, 70013 Pentamodi, Greece|
The private pool adds to the characteristics of the discreet luxury and decorates the nights of the veranda. Large open plan lounge with integrated dining area, a fireplace and full equipment, complete the comfort and relaxation that the guests enjoy when they do not choose to gaze and wonder at the mountain view, tapestry of olive groves and vineyards.
15 kms from the famous Amoudara Beach (15 minutes drive). Amoudara Beach is 6 kms long and is famous among locals and foreigners for its thin golden sand. It has parts with a lot of people, while others with few, also it has restaurants, cafes, water sports, beach bars...
Another choice near, recommended from our guests is Lygaria , a more quiet and family beach, located at a gulf, suitable for windy days. Amnissos, Karteros and Paliokastro beaches are also within short drive distances.
There are two traditional 'kafenions' one of which also serves traditional 'mezes', Giorgos' "Mezedopoleion", a mix of Cretan cafe and taverna, highly recommended by our guests for his hospitality and dishes. Additionally, a selection of brilliant local taverns can be found within a few kilometres in the surrounding villages and the Christina complex modern snack café is always an alternative and on site.
The village layout, cobbled roads and stone-built houses maintain the design, architecture and structure of the old days. Conveniently located just 15 kilometers from the island’s capital Heraklion, yet a million miles away from its hustle and bustle, some excellent walking country is almost on your doorstep, with the European Hiking Path passing close to the nearby village of Ano Assites, and encompassing many Byzantine Chapels, ravines, river valleys and holly forests, it is truly a place of outstanding natural beauty.
On this vacation you are not going to be alone: For the best service we will support your holiday during your stay, guaranteeing that you will get the most of your vacation: An information book with local sightseeing, tavernas, beaches and general information will be provided.
In addition, there is from this year the possibility of chef service: a private chef as an additional (if desired) service that will cook for our Guests Cretan and Greek cuisine at the villa (and also show how it is cooked!) at very affordable prices.

Reviews of this property
Our Stay at Pentamodi was just what we needed. Adonis was a great host and looked after us on arrival, meeting us at the airport and guiding us back to the Villa. The Villa was clean with everything we needed for our stay, plus a hamper so that we didn't need to rush out and go shopping. The kids really enjoyed the pool and people in the village were very friendly. We got a great sense of the traditional Cretan village life during our stay.
Would have no problem in booking again or recommending this Villa the only downside was that our stay felt very short. Thanks for a great holiday and letting us stay in your wonderful Villa.

Very nice Villa. Got great tips which places to visit and good maps for finding things like a supermarked easily. Greek standart of cleaness. We missed some extra towels for the pool or beach, but thats the only thing to complain about.
Price -benefit is very good! and we loved the quite surrounding without a lot other tourists!
Adonis was really wonderful and the pick up was important. I am not sure we would have found the Villa. It is home-like. It smelled very strongly like mold in the bedrooms and I decided to stay in town at a hotel. Perhaps in summer it is better. My friends remained at the house although they were not that happy with it either.
Adonis and his crew we very obliging. We had someone waiting for us at the airport when we arrived to drive us to the villa as requested. Hiring a car is a must to see the wonderful countryside and as the villa is about 30 minutes from the main town. Adonis has car hire available at a very reasonable rate though. The local village is wonderful and the local tavern run by George is a must for some local cuisine. A lovely villa with lovely surroundings!
Great welcome and stay follow up. House is very comfortable, garden and swimming pool very niceto spend time. A beautiful place to be.
Beautiful Villa, very nice exterior, swimming pool.
Nous revenons d'un séjour de 7 jours en Crête et la villa d'Adonis a grandement contribué à la perfection de nos vacances. Dès notre arrivée, on nous attendait avec la voiture de location (louer à prix tout à fait raisonnable) et on nous a reconduit jusqu'à la villa. On a pris le temps de bien nous accueillir avec en prime une petite épicerie pour le petit-déjeuner! Nous étions les premiers de la saison a profiter de la villa et nous avons rencontré quelques pépins, surtout en ce qui concerne l'eau chaude. Toutefois, dans l'heure qui suivait, Adonis avait réglé la situation. Le service a été impeccable! Il nous a aussi fait découvrir le restaurant traditionnel du village...un pur délice! Nous vous recommandons fortement de vivre l'expérience crétoise comme nous l'avons fait dans cette villa. Par contre, vous êtes dans les montagnes, ce qui signifie que le wifi n'est pas au top.
Merci Adonis, à toi et ta belle famille pour votre temps et votre générosité!
