This dreamy villa is located only 12 km away from the center of Heraklion in a huge private plot thick with vines and olive trees. Located just 6 km from the nearest beach it will provide you with the privilege of relaxing and private moments away from the city noise.
This Villa is located in the village Kalesa, a small village with few inhabitants, traditional settlement of stone houses, built on a hill, the base of which has many caves known from the Minoan era which later exploited by the Venetians and stood with carved arches.
Secluded from the crowded tourist areas, our guests easily become acquainted with the genuine Cretan lifestyle, whilst enjoying high quality facilities, services and picturesque surroundings, together with a characteristic “home away from home” warmth and hospitality.
The Paradise Villa can accommodate up to 5 persons, as it includes one double bed and 3 couches. This Villa offers you all the probable amenities. It consists of a large bathroom, a fairly large bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen appropriate for the preparation of delicious meals and a lovely fireplace which offers special atmosphere in your personal relaxation during your winter holiday. The large balcony is also ideal for some moments of relaxation and enjoyment of the vast verdant view.
At the exterior of the Villa you will be enchanted by the endless views of the lush countryside, filled with vines and olive trees. If you're lucky, depending on the season you will visit the island, you might have the chance to get a closer look of the collection procedures of olive fruit in the winter or of the grapes in the summer. Outdoors there is even a barbecue and a wooden table, which can offer you a delicious meal in the nature.
