Villa overview - owner's description

Located in the traditional village of Pendamodi in the Heraklion area, the two-storey, stone built Christina Villa 2 of the Christina Villas complex offers 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 the guests usually decide to leave the hospitality and warmth of Christina and of the village. Christina Villa has an architecture inspired from the local traditional aesthetics. The private pool adds to the characteristics of the discreet luxury and decorates the nights of the veranda. Large open plan lounge with integrated dining area, a fireplace and full equipment, complete the comfort and relaxation that the guests enjoy when they do not choose to gaze and wonder at the mountain view, tapestry of olive groves and vineyards.

Pendamodi village
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 sociality. There are two traditional "kafenions" one of which also serves traditional "mezes" and a horse-riding club and taverna for those who want to taste the local cuisine or test their riding skills. The village layout, cobbled roads and stone-built houses maintain the design, architecture and structure of the old days. The main village and the surrounding landscapes are ideal for nature lovers and walkers.
The possibility to be in the full of life and hype City of Heraklion in a few minutes makes Pendamodi a unique destination for both foreign and local guests.

Family from Smørum, Denmark Aug 2016

We enjoyed our stay. Good experience to live in a small Greek town. Nice people all round. God little Taverna in town.
For our benefit a little more kitchen supplies ind the form of bowles , would have been usefull. As well as garden funiture in the front porch would have been nice for when it is windy. Which we had a lot of wind the first week. Just small stuff. We genuinely enjoyed our stay. Thank you for your fine service!

Reply from Zakros Tours

Thank you very much for your kind feedback Daniella! We highly appreciate it and we will make sure to get some more bowls for the kitchen and we will consider the furnitute in the front porch, which is something we have never thought before!

Once again we would like to thank you for commenting on the location and the taverna at the village.

We would love to have you back!

We spent a wonderful week in this lovely villa which was very well equipped, clean and comfortable - the private pool and garden was a lovely addition. George kindly met us at the airport to show us to our hire car (hired through Zakros tours at a very competitive rate) and then to Pendamodi. The team did all they could to ensure we had a wonderful holiday and with the great local taverna and food and the local shop we couldn't have wanted more. In the words of Arnie - "We'll be back!" x

uch im zweiten Jahr in Folge war der Urlaub im Ferienhaus wieder unglaublich erholsam und gemütlich! Die Begrüßung war herzlich. Giorgo im Kafenion erkannte uns gleich wieder, im kleinen Laden konnten wir gleich die nötigsten Sachen einkaufen - sofern sie nicht ohnehin schon im Begrüßungskorb enthalten waren. Großes Lob auch an Manolis, unsere Hinweise und Anregungen vom letzten Jahr wurden tatsächlich beachtet, so daß nun u.a. auch neue Messer und Eierbecher in der Küche vorhanden waren. Tabs für die kleine Spülmaschine lagen bereit. Das ist Service! Das Kochevent war wieder ein Erlebnis - diesmal mit Kaninchen. Wer sich einfach mal zurücklehnen und echt griechisch bekochen lassen will, sollte das unbedingt buchen. Ansonsten gilt alles wie im vergangenen Jahr, wenn man keinen touristischen Hotelurlaub sucht, sondern ruhig (oder auch mal lebhaft) Urlaub mit Einheimischen verbringen möchte, dann ist man hier richtig. Leider war die eine Woche wieder viel zu kurz...

We had a wonderful stay in this well equipped lovely little villa. There was everything that we needed including a bbq. The maid service was exceptional with clean linen more often then we have had in other stays. We enjoyed staying in a village setting as we have often been in the middle of nowhere, and found plenty of necessities in the local shop and ate 5 times in the taverna!
