Pendamodi Villa Rental Photos and Description

15 kilometers away from the Capital and the Beach while in a peaceful village

Located in the traditional village of Pendamodi in the Heraklion area, the two-storey Christina Villas offer the unique combination of peace along with modern comforts and easy access to the City life. At a distance of just 15kms from Heraklion, the capital of Crete, also the north beaches and the E4 walking path, Pendamodi is an ideal location for excursions to every corner of the island, even though few of our guests usually decide to leave the hospitality and warmth of Christina and of the village. Christina Villas have an architecture emanating from the local traditional aesthetics. Each of the private pools add to the characteristics of the discreet luxury and decorates the nights of the veranda. Large open plan lounges with integrated dining areas, fireplaces and full equipment, complete the comfort and relaxation that you can enjoy when you do not choose to gaze and wonder at the mountain view, tapestry of olive groves and vineyards.

About Christina Villas: Christina Villas was a project completed in 2003. Thanassis Paspalakis, founder and Director of Zakros Tours did see the obvious, that Pendamodi, the village where he was born could be, due to beauty and location, an ideal place for alternative and high quality tourism. He created a complex of 11 superb villas, featuring one of Crete's best properties.

As a specialist in tourism Thanassis, did understand what his guests would want from their distinctive vacations.

Our long experience in “philoxenia” [hospitality in ancient and modern Greek] is always there for our guests. Our will is to treat our guests mostly as family friends coming on vacation, rather than a client as meant by hospitality sciences.

Christina complex, was named after the mother of Thanassis, an adorable woman, married to Manolis Paspalakis, owner of the Kafeneion founded in 1930 and renovated by his grand-grand son Giorgos in 2005.

Coast/beach and eating outdoors: 15 km from the famous Ammoudara Beach (15 minutes drive). Ammoudara 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' in Pendamodi 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 kilometers in the surrounding villages and the Christina complex modern snack café is always an alternative and on site

Special interest holidays / Service: Courses on Greek History and Literature can take place on special demand by the candidate doctor of Philology, Adonis Paspalakis.

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.

séjour fin avril début mai 2011

  • 5 of 5
Endroit calme et bien situé pour ceux qui veulent, comme nous, visiter le pays
Excellent accueil avec même un panier pour le premier petit déjeuner, ménage fait tous les 3 jours en même temps que les draps et linge de maison sont changés.
La location de voiture a été parfaite, une personne nous attendait à l'aéroport D'Héraklion et nous a même amenée jusqu'a la maison. Des conseils de visites intéressants nous ont été prodigués par le loueur.
La « taverna » du village est excellente, l’épicière, ouverte quasiment en permanence, offre le minimum nécessaire.
Nous recommandons cet endroit la description est parfaitement conforme à la réalité

My family and I visited Christina Villa's last August and enjoyed a great, relaxing holiday in the traditional village of Pendamodi.
The villa was to a high standard with good facilities, plenty of space and privacy. The property had a lovely garden incorporating a swimming pool, BBQ area and good sitting areas to accomodate those who enjoy the sun or those who prefer a shaded area.
Pool and Villa cleaning was carried out on a regular basis by friendly, and helpful staff to a good standard.
On arrival we received a warm welcome from Adonis and his family and they remained helpful and available throughout our stay.
We enjoyed good local cuisine in Pendmodi as well as great restaurants in the surrounding villages, all to a high standard at affordable prices.
For those who are looking for a quiet realxing break in a traditional village not too far from the capital Iraklion( Heraklion) and the major attractions we would highly recommend Christina Villa's.

Christina Villa, Pendamodi village

  • 5 of 5
We have visited the beautiful Island of Crete many times but usually stayed in a coastal resort. When we saw Christina Villa we decided to give it a try.
The villa is fantastic, very private and the villages were marvelous.
The people were very friendly, and the food at the taverna was really
scrumptious.
We would definately go back and recommend it for a truely relaxing
holiday.
Manolis is the owner and couldn't do enough for us, he is a truely
lovely , genuine person.

Fantastic - 5 stars all round!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic stay in this luxurious villa back in Sept.

The facilities were great and the owners were brilliant. The villa is owned by a local family who take real pride in their work and hospitality - they went to great trouble to ensure we had a good stay - advising us on local beaches, site seeing, restaurants etc. We even got a competitive car hire deal through Zakros Tours.

We really enjoyed chatting to both Georgious (?) & Adonis about life in Crete, which gave us further insight into the culture.

The local taverna (also owned by the same family) cooked up some delish dishes. This (coming from a fussy eater) is not to be snuffed at!!

I really couldn't fault the team or the villa - If you're going to Crete, this is the place to stay.

Lovely location in *real* Crete

  • 5 of 5
If you want to experience *real* Crete, this is the place for you. Situated in the hills south of Heraklion, there are lots of places to explore nearby & excellent tavernas and cafes. The owners & managers of the villa were extraordinarily generous with their time & very thoughtful--so much so that I felt badly about the amount of time of theirs we consumed. And what's more, they can help you rent a car, which you'll need.

In the village is a lovely cafe/taverna with *excellent* food, and the owners were very thorough to point us to lots of other great places to eat & visit. Strongly recommended.

Owner's Response: Really thank you for your lovely words about us, our villa and our island - Personally I hope we had more time to spend with you and your family! It was a pleasure to have you guests in our house and I hope to see you again on Crete!

Car: necessary

Pendamodi is one of the oldest villages of Crete and it is not without importance, that Stefanos Sahlikis wrote his poems there beginning this way in the middle of the 14th century, the Renaissance of Cretan and Greek literature. Today there are a few inhabitants who are well known for their hospitality and sociability.

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.
