Villa Ariadne

Even though the delightful village of Kastellos is just 5km away from the fine, sandy beach and the National Highway, it manages to keep its naturalness and traditional charm. That´s why the idyllic hillside location guarantees both excellent peace and unique views of the sea and the magic landscape with its small villages.

The holiday house consists of two separate apartments on two floors, which can be rented separately or together. Both apartments have large verandas/balconies and a swimming pool. Both apartments provide an attractively designed open-plan living and dining area with fully equipped kitchen (including coffee machine,
electric kettle, micro wave), 2 bedrooms (single beds/double bed/extra-bed), a bathroom with walk-in-shower and a separate toilet.
The ground floor apartment has altogether 73m² living area the upper apartment
has 95m² on 2 levels and a second toilet. Double glass aluminium doors and windows combined with mosquito nets ensure a maximum of sleeping comfort and an enjoyable quality of holiday. The basic equipment includes also air conditioning, safety box, sat-TV, washing machine, hair dryer and electric iron.
The swimming pool (30 m²) and BBQ area are shared with other guests staying in the neighbours' house on the other side of the pool. Plenty of loungers and two BBQ's are provided for the two houses. For both apartments there is a private parking area at the rear of the house.

The traditional village of Kastellos is located 1km further up the hill. On the little village square you can enjoy the great view and the typical Cretan lifestyle, and in the small taverna Maria is cooking according to the traditional Cretan cuisine. There is very little traffic, a bakerman comes by every day on his way to the village. 

The owners of the house Nikos and Nadia live nearby in Kavros. Nadia speaks Dutch, English, French and German, and is always available. They take care of the house themselves, f.i. cleaning and changing of towels and bed linen, and even putting breakfast in the fridge for late arrivals. They also have a shop with bicycles for rent and they can give you a lot of tips on things to do in the area.
A rental car is recommended here.

    We hebben een geweldige vakantie gehad in dit prachtige huis. Met de auto ben je zo bij het strand, winkels en restaurants. Ook heerlijk gegeten bij de plaatselijke taverna van Maria die op loopafstand ligt.

  • Willem Locher, with the family. Gave on an average of 8.0  

    Prachtige villa met alle voorzieningen, heerlijk zwembad.
    Wat wij misten: blik en veger om in de kamer de vloer even aan te vegen; 2 stoeltjes in de slaapkamer 2 hoog om kleren op te leggen. Geen belangrijke zaken, wel een praktische hulp.

  • petra van der meer, with the family. Gave on an average of 7.6  

    Het huis is prachtig en de eigenaar zeer vriendelijk, het strand was wat verder weg dan we dachten. Er is een huis in aanbouw op het naastgelegen perceel, dat levert wel wat geluidsoverlast op, net als de doorgaande weg naast het huis.
