Villa overview - owner's description

Villa Gaia has been recently restored into luxury vacation house, combining the lost qualities of traditional home architecture with modern facilities and luxury.

Diktynna residence complex is located in the historic village of Anatoli, Southeastern Crete Greece. Its five traditional village houses have been recently restored into luxury vacation houses, combining the lost qualities of traditional home architecture with modern facilities and luxury. All villas are fully equipped and furnished and offer all amenities that will make you feel like home. Thanks to its privileged location, Diktynna commands breathtaking, panoramic views over the South Cretan Sea.

The traditional settlement Anatoli (sunrise), took its name by the first morning sun rays that flood the village. Throughout its long history, the village flourished during the Venetian domination and occupied a strategic position, as the ruins of the great Venetian Tower on the east end of the village indicate.

Built amphitheatrically on the slopes of mountain Dikty (the reputed birthplace of Zeus), at 600m. altitude, the settlement offers a magnificent view of the South Cretan Sea. Its clear atmosphere and healthy, dry climate make Anatoli an ideal vacation destination during the whole year. Nowadays, the village has been officially classified and labeled as one of the 15 most beautiful villages of Crete and is gradually restored without compromising its traditional structures.

The cobblestone paths, the natural fountains, the old buildings and the beautiful, tranquil scenery will make your vacation experience here one to remember.
