Crete Family Villas
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Just back from two weeks in Villa Kalithea. I agree with all the other reviews, lovely accommodation , spectacular views, fab weather and no mosquitos's! There are 3 VIllas dotted together at the top of the mountain in Pentamodi. Jocelyn, the owner stayed in one of the villas and was on hand to do her utmost to make our stay perfect in every way.
You must be aware that the location is a little remote though- perfect for us, but a trip anywhere involves a 20 minute winding drive down the mountain. Not something everyone would want to do.
But once you're at the bottom you are perfectly placed to explore in any direction!
Crete is such a beautiful Island- well worth a visit.

Our two weeks in Villa Eleftheria in July were delightful. The accommodation for the four of us was excellent, the views stunning and the village of Pendamodi provided the perfect rural setting without being too far away from everything. George’s Kafenion in the village served wonderful, inexpensive food with an easy stroll back to the villa after. Thank you, Jocelyn, for choosing such an excellent place, making sure that we had everything we needed and providing us with excellent recommendations and company. Particular favourites were the outings to the Douloufakis family winery and the amazing Festival of Cheese. The holiday was very relaxing – the villa a perfect place from which to make day trips to archaeological sites, the occasional beach but also just great to stay in, chat, read by the pool and stargaze in the evening.

My parents, sister and I spent two weeks at the beautiful Villa Kalithea in July. The location is lovely, high enough for a cool breeze and no mosquitoes, with panoramical views to die for. The proximity to Heraklion is fantastic, an easy 20-30 min from supermarkets, Knossos, the airport and the beaches. The local village of Pendamodi has a couple of lovely kafenions as well as a local shop.

The villas themselves are exquisitely decorated, with lovely thoughtful touches such as a bottle of wine on arrival and apricots in the frisge picked that day from the garden and fresh flowers in every room. The villas come with everything - towels, cooking utensils and lilos etc. What really makes this place special though is Jocelyne and her husband, for whom nothing is too much trouble. Whether it's coming with you to Avis to get a flat tyre changed or organizing your trip or showing you the little local restaurants, Jocelyne goes above and beyond to ensure you have a good time, and really made this trip special.

All in all, wonderful time, and will return. Total relaxation!

We had a fabulous week here last summer, the most spectacular views and a lovely house (we stayed in the villa kalithea) which was very clean and comfortable. Lovely swimming pool and pretty surroundings. Jocelyne and Andy were very friendly and helpful hosts (they were in one of the three houses, which are all situated in the same area). Our three children had a lovely time and we would definitely recommend it and come back!

We had a fantastic time at the Pendamodi villas. The country side view is absolutely breathtaking, and the convenience of your own pool truly makes it relaxing and enjoyable. The villas provided everything you could ask for to make sure your stay would be completely relaxing and stress free. A perfect place for a fantastic family holiday, and proves to have something for everyone.
