Villa Pente Anemoi is surrounded by beautiful and spectacular mountain scenery and one of Crete’s most unique beaches is in short distance.

The original Villa Pente Anemoi was built 120 years ago and was designed as a family house. During the complete renovation in 2008, most of the original materials were re-used. The renovation was inspired by traditional building techniques to keep the house in its authentic shape and style. Today the house offers facilities to cover all the demanding needs and luxury standards for a comfortable stay on the south coast of Crete.

This 170 square meters two-story villa offers plenty space to live for everybody.

Starting from the ground floor, you will find a well-equipped kitchen and large open plan living area with a comfortable seating area with fireplace, large comfortable sofas and a satellite TV. Near the living room area there is also a dining table for more than 10 people. You will also find 2 bathrooms and one bedroom with 2 single beds.

On the first floor via a wide wooden staircase, there are 3 more comfortable bedrooms, all of them are double-bedded and air-conditioned.

The villa has also 2 normal single beds which can be placed in any bedroom and increasing the villa's room for ten people if it is necessary! A baby-cot is also available.

The outside is an 125 square meters area with an additional 25 square meters private parking area.

The kitchen and the dining room on the ground floor have access to the veranda with outdoor dining area. A stairway is leading to the upper sleeping rooms and to an other balcony.

- Our farm -

Located just 0.7 km away from the villa there is a large privately owned farm. Guests of the villa are welcome to visit there for free at any time of your stay (we will provide you the keys).

The farm is equipped with outdoor furniture to relax in the nature and enjoy your coffee or picnic in one of the pavilions scattered among the olive trees in front of the small lake with goldfishes, near the small river which is flowing across the farm. Let the peace and tranquility of nature to relax you. The feeling of spending your afternoon in the farm will be unforgettable!

In our farm we also have many animals. Our love for our animals leads us to have a small zoo with animals living in Crete! The care of the animals apart from an obligation is a real pleasure for us, a pleasure that we want to share with you! Our little friends can enjoy carefree playing in the farm and learn everything about farm animals.

Authentic cretan holiday <3

  • 5 of 5

I booked the villa 5 anemoi for a family holiday.( My dad, mum, brother, sister in law, boyfriend, me and my little nephew). We stayed at the villa for 11 days....and all I can say is that everything was so perfect. It could not have been better. Betty an Hlias (the owners) did really everything for making it the best holiday we ever had. We wanted to have a real authentic cretan holiday and not a touristic one.....and we get what we wanted.

The Villa is in a little but very beautiful village called Lefkogeia. You live just inbetween other cretan citizens, there is a small supermarket in the center, a few Tavernas so you get the real greek style.

Also the beaches are not far away and if you want to see a little bit more its also not far to Plakias where you get everything you like.

But we spend the most time at the Beaches and in the beautiful House. The house is an old cretan stone house which betty and hlias renovated at it's best i can say. It's a good mix of old and modern and we felt really comfortable there. Everything was so clean and Betty was coming around each day for asking if everything was ok. It felt like home for us and Hlias and Betty became friends with us (they are so nice). Especially the farm of betty and Hlias was such an adventure for my little nephew. For me you couldn't get a better place for spending your holidays. I will surely go back to this Place!!!! I Love Greece, I love Crete and I really fell in love with Lefkogeia and the Villa pente anemoi with their owners Betty and Hlias.

Thanks for making it a perfekt holiday!!!!

Verena Mack (Germany)

And not to forget, also thanks for Kostas and Sophia for organising everything and answering all questions we had. You're great!!!!!

Fantastic, family friendly week in lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa is a classic Greek home nestled within a friendly village. It provided plenty of interest for all the children, aged 3 -5. Betty and her husband were fantastic hosts and could not have done more for us. We visited them twice at their small farm which the children absolutely loved, and the adults did too! They gave us loads of good advice about where to go and what restaurants to eat in. When we managed to lock ourselves out of a room, help arrived within minutes.

The villa is unusual in its layout but is a fascinating insight into Crete history due to the loving way the hosts have restored it. It was clean, comfortable and we even got firewood for the open fire. The rooms were all a good size and it easily housed the 7 of us.

We really felt like we'd experienced a real bit of Cretan life and would definitely recommend this villa. We would go back to the same place should we visit again.

truly private holidays in a unique environment enc

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spacious and can accommodate 2 families and 8+ people in total. It has a fully equipped kitchen and 2 bathrooms. Air conditioners are installed in every bedroom. Large terrace is covered with grapes and the garden is there to relax after hard day’s night. The supermarket and taverns are easily accessible on foot and the beaches are 10-15 minutes drive from the house.

What made our holiday so special are the details that you only learn when you’re in. This house gave us a chance to feel the history of Crete and unique charm of Hellas culture. Each and every element of the house is restored with a very special attention. The convenient facilities and modern equipment are only the add-ons to the spirit of wooden stairways and doors, handmade dining tables and chairs, fireplace, ancient rifle and hand tools on the wall. The surrounding neighborhood with charming houses and streets, kids playing around in the evening, people going to a Sunday mass and celebrating a wedding are making the picture complete. Living all my life in a big city I personally can’t imagine my holidays without this elusive combination of privacy the house gave us and an opportunity to be a small part of true routine life of a region. You can’t find it living in a SPA resort, right?

We enjoyed every one of the twenty days spent in Plakias region. We degusted all beaches around and liked two the most – Fotinary in the morning and Shinaria in the evening. Damnoni is also very good. We had fun with GPS navigator choosing “the shortest” rocky trail to Preveli Monastery, walked down to Kourtaliotis Gorge, scrambled around the Pirates Bay and enjoyed panoramic dinner in Myrthios. The diadem of our holiday was the glorious sunset we had with Betty and Hlias, our most welcoming friends, at their “nice little” farm. If you ask our kids what is memorized most from these Cretan holidays Ann will tell you – horse riding with auntie Betty, George – fishing with uncle Hlias, Kate – feeding animals and playing with the dog at the farm. While the kids were busy watching the gold fishes the adults had the most delicious octopus-in-vinegar with homemade wine other refreshments.

Was there anything to regret about? We missed a chance to rent a 4WD and a boat to expand the borders of our journey and now I’m daily starving for Greek food and crystal clear water of South Crete bays.

Betty, Hlias, thank you for the momentous summer’13. Such days are feeding our life and making it full.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We have spent 2 weeks in August in this property, and I just can say that it was a pleasure. The house is big enough for 9 people (we were 6 adults and 3 children) and it is beautifully renewed, but keeping the atmosphere of a traditional house. It is very clean and the owner, Betty, is really nice, helping us in everything we needed, and always with a smile. She and her husband have helped us to discover the beautiful places of the area, which are a lot. The village and the area are quiet and ideal to disconnect. A near small town, Plakias, has a wider offer of restaurants and services. To summarize, an ideal place and house for a special holidays. Highly recommended.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in this beautiful villa, and we were very happy there. It is a cozy, romantic house on a quiet place, in a small village with friendly people all around. The owners, Bety and Hlias were always very helpful to us and we spent some very nice hours on her cute farm. Thank you very much!

A Cretan gem, in a welcoming village setting

  • 5 of 5

An authentic Cretan family home with a fine, vine-covered terrace at its heart. The villa, in winter, is the family home of local owners Betty and Elias, and it is full of their unique personal touches.

We enjoyed consistently fine weather, so we made most use of the terrace and - of course - the convenient adjacent kitchen.

The villa is tucked away at the end of an ordinary street in this delightful, friendly village and offers peace and privacy whilst still providing a privileged insight into authentic Cretan village life.

Lefkogia is an unassuming but delightful location close to nearby Plakias. There is an excellent supermarket, and several welcoming tavernas.

The village is set amid spectacular rocky hills and olive groves, and just a short distance away is the owners' small family farm.

The local beaches are truly remarkable: clean, accessible and with the clearest water I can imagine. We worried beforehand that we might miss not having a pool, but our concerns proved to be groundless. Nearby Schinaria comes as close to beach perfection as I have experienced: a rocky cove with clean coarse sand, a stunning backdrop and a rocky underwater wonderland to explore. There is a small and welcoming taverna set close behind that offers clean, modern facilities and drinks and light meals.

I personally wonder for how much longer it will be possible to enjoy such unspoilt scenic splendour and authentic local atmosphere. Catch it while you can is my advice, and view it from this quirky, intimate, highly practical family villa. Owners Betty and Elias both speak excellent English and proved to be wonderfully welcoming, practical and helpful. Our holiday was a delight.
