We also hired a car from the owner and were met at the airport and guided to the villa. We didn't include GPS in the hire and would do that next time. The villa is south of Heraklion in a small village with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. The location is certainly a big plus, the property feels very private and secure. The village shop had everything we needed including freshly baked bread every day, lots of locally grown fruit and vegetables, cheese and wine and friendly English speaking staff. There is also a restaurant which serves food all freshly prepared by the owner at really low prices, An excellent dinner with wine and raki, locally distilled was just £10 a head and this less than five minutes from the villa. I last went to Crete forty years ago when there were no cars but what hasn't changed is the people, they still have a great sense of hospitality and very friendly.
The villa turned out to be much larger than I expected, two twin rooms and a double, large by modern standards with lots of storage cupboards. The downstairs is open plan with a reasonable kitchen area and a good sized fridge-freezer. We had all our meals outdoors and used the barbecue nearly every day. The villa was clean and in a good state of decoration, cleaned and towels changed twice a week. There is enough sun beds around the pool for six and the garden is planted with trees and flowering shrubs, but remember not to leave things out overnight as the sprinklers pop overnight to water the grass. The location means that both north and south coasts can be reached in half an hour and Agios Nikolaos and Chania about an hour.
Number 3 Christina Villa the perfect quite getaway in apart of Crete which retains the old fashion charm and values; we thoroughly enjoyed it and would not hesitate to go again.
Just returned from a lovely holiday in Pentamodi, the villa is clean and comfortable with everything that we required.it is not the most glamorous villa that we have been in but nothing to complain about. We didn't use the tabletop dishwasher ,but it is there if you want to use it. The swimming pool could do with a bit of attention,it's just a wee bit grubby with the leaves etc falling into it, and although we scooped them out daily the overall appearance is that the grouting and tiles could do with cleaning
The village is lovely with a great wee taverna where you get a nice meal, pot luck but always very tasty.you definitely need a car, and a map!!, but it's only 15 minutes to the nearest resort. We had great assistance from Elizabeth, meeting us at the airport to guide us to the villa and advice on where to visit. The wifi is not great, but it kind of works. Overall we would recommend this villa if you enjoy a peaceful location and don't mind driving.
Christina was a great place for us..Surrounded by a beautiful scenery with trees and flowers.I loved the outdoor pool where i used to spend many hours with a book or music.My little sister also got excited with the video-games and the DVD player.The rooms were big and clean.My mom used to cook in the full equipped kitchen it was very useful to have everything you need in the place you stay.From kitchen,micro,boiler even dishwasher and washing machine in a small room in the house.It was twenty minutes from the main city of the island Iraclio and also close to Knossos one of the most famous ancient palace in Greece.The beaches of Crete were amazing and the owner was very helpful and provide us with all the necessary information to get the best of our trip..Best thing was that they also rend cars so you could actually combine everything and get a very good deal,cause without a car it's not that easy to do a lot of things since the island is huge..!!It is amazing how many thing were there to see and do..Ten days were nothing at the end we wanted more...!
We stayed at Christina III last October (2010) for a week. The experience was absolutely great. The villa is large (good for 3 couples) & comfortable with all you need to eat in & with a nice swimming pool. We went out almost every night to Heraklion and during the day we had great traditional dishes and drinks at the local charming CAFE (best Raki in Greece!).
The village is inspiring and the people are warm and welcoming.
Adonis, Manolis & George who ran the place are super & will assist with what ever is needed. If you plan to go on a vacation with kids or with a few friends - this is definitely a great spot!
