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.

two weeks relaxing on Crete

  • 5 of 5

The accomodation is really nice, well-cared with a friendly owner. It's located right in the middle of Levkogia close to the little shop and taverns. We really appreciated our stay there where everything is prepared for the guests, even a gas-BBQ, spices,... everything you need.

A Very Special Home

  • 5 of 5

This home in a small village on the Southern coast of Crete is quite special. It is an unusual and beautiful historic home with all the modern conveniences needed to make our family's week-long stay perfect. We felt honored to be able to stay here, you could feel the history of the place everywhere. We spent most of our time on the vine covered veranda listening to the sound of crickets and the music wafting over us from the neighbors. We sat around the big table for meals and to play games with the family. We loved the cats that visited us, but they were easily shooed away while we ate. The updated kitchen made it very convenient to prepare our meals after a day of exploring. I have never seen so many beautiful and different beaches so close to a home we rented. We explored different ones each day. The sites were great but we enjoyed the beaches and hanging around the house the most.

The highlight of the trip was the visit to Betty and Elias' farm, a stunning place nearby the rental. They are the most gracious of hosts, Elias gave us a tour of the olive, nut, and fruit trees and the awesome animals on the farm. We enjoyed the sunset with wine and rake and delicious food on their deck overlooking the farm. They are wonderful, hard-working, fun-loving people providing a place for people to stay at reasonable prices. They shared with us their their family home, farm, stories, and love of Crete. They recommended the best beaches, an amazing restaurant and other places we never would have found without their guidance. But the house was, as I said, very special. My son called it the hobbit house with thick walls and beautiful decor. It had many rooms and each bedroom was comfortable and had air conditioning for the few nights that got very hot. It also gave us space and privacy when we needed it. The great showers, wifi, washing machine, made it convenient, but the home made us feel part of the past.

A wonderful house with a very friendly atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We (2 families with 5 children) spent 9 days in this great house during our easter holidays. Betty and Elias, the owner of the house, understood to create a great atmosphere. We were really impressed about there friendliness and help in any situations. They even left a basket with vine, olive oil, honey and Rakhi for our wellcome. So we felt very good and relaxed all the time. The old charme house was very clean and well- maintained and Betty changed the towels every three days and cleaned the house after some days. The house ist situated admidst the small village Lefgogia. We hiked almost every day in the interesting landscape around. And especially the cost and the sea with all these fantastic bays we liked most. Once we visited the Farm of Betty and Elias. Our children could ride on the horse and feet the animals. We very loved this visit and had a lot of fun together. All in all we really can and want to recommend this property to everybody who would like to experience greek enjoyment of life.

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.
