    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    The villa is situated on the edge of the historic village Kyrianna on what was part of an old olive grove. the village of Kyrianna is only a 10 minute walk up a steep hill or a 2 minute drive away. the village has 2 tavernas, a kafeneo, a butchers and 2 village shops.The views from the villa are stunning as it has sea ,mountain and valley views and behind there is a new olive grove that was planted up in 2012. To date there are no plans to build on the vacant plot next to ours.

    For those of you that cannot do without or need access to the internet there is an internet cafe 5 minutes drive away based in the local ta...

This is a very well equipped house, providing a holiday location literally off the beaten track, allowing you to experience the real Crete. The pool is well maintained and although being at the front of the property, it is incredibly private. We saw the local farmer drive past once each day and no-one else! A hire car is a real... more
