Villa Helidona

Colours of Crete
1 of 25Colours of Crete
Villa -
4 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Episkopi, Crete
Away from crowded tourist centres and just minutes walking distance from the village square is your special hideaway. Villa Helidona lies on a side street hidden behind a wall, it is secluded and offers lots of privacy. The villa property entrance leads to an inner courtyard. Once you enter into the courtyard the main building lies in front of you and the west wing to your right.

Let the atmosphere of this beautifully renovated 19th century traditional Cretan stone house enchant you. Antique furniture, Cretan traditional furniture, original artwork and hand-woven carpets create a unique environment. This stunning and spacious home provides all the comfort you need for a great holiday.

The position of the villa allows you easily to explore the island, but many of my guests just stay at the villa for it truly peaceful here.

About the neighbourhood
In Episkopi people with great warmth and generosity will welcome you to Crete. This is just the right place to spend a wonderful and relaxing holiday. Tourism has hardly touched the village and “filoxenia” (Greek for hospitality) is simply the motto of Episkopi.

A tradition deeply rooted in the Cretan way of life. So being a guest here will show you first hand what Cretan hospitality really means. The village's main source of income is from agriculture. Olive groves and vineyards surround the village. Life moves with a different pace compared to the coastal tourist areas. This is Crete the way it was and the way it is meant to be.
