CHRISTINA III

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.

WE WILL DO THAT AGAIN..!!

  • 5 of 5
Christina was a great place for us..Surrounded by a beautiful scenery with trees and flowers.I loved the outdoor pool where i used to spend many hours with a book or music.My little sister also got excited with the video-games and the DVD player.The rooms were big and clean.My mom used to cook in the full equipped kitchen it was very useful to have everything you need in the place you stay.From kitchen,micro,boiler even dishwasher and washing machine in a small room in the house.It was twenty minutes from the main city of the island Iraclio and also close to Knossos one of the most famous ancient palace in Greece.The beaches of Crete were amazing and the owner was very helpful and provide us with all the necessary information to get the best of our trip..Best thing was that they also rend cars so you could actually combine everything and get a very good deal,cause without a car it's not that easy to do a lot of things since the island is huge..!!It is amazing how many thing were there to see and do..Ten days were nothing at the end we wanted more...!

GREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Christina III last October (2010) for a week. The experience was absolutely great. The villa is large (good for 3 couples) & comfortable with all you need to eat in & with a nice swimming pool. We went out almost every night to Heraklion and during the day we had great traditional dishes and drinks at the local charming CAFE (best Raki in Greece!).
The village is inspiring and the people are warm and welcoming.
Adonis, Manolis & George who ran the place are super & will assist with what ever is needed. If you plan to go on a vacation with kids or with a few friends - this is definitely a great spot!

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.
