- Swimming Pool
Hidden behind the 13th century Byzantine chapel that stands watch over this charming old property, entering Villa Helidona is like walking into Aladin’s Cave.
Once you pass through the beautiful stone courtyard and enter the main house, you are greeted with an array of antiques reminding you of the turbulent history of the island, as well as the old utilities of the yonder years used by the Cretan people.
Though the furnishings of the villa are in keeping with its period, the owner Dimitris has ensured that you will find every modern comfort.
The master bedroom and living room lead out to the completely private and peaceful terrace overlooking to the splendid swimming pool where it is not rare to see the local swallows taking a dip. It is also the ideal place for barbequing. Swallows being the inspiration of the name of this fine old property, the Greek meaning being Helidona.
At the far end of the pool is and abundant orchard, vegetable and plans garden, 1000m² from which guests are welcome to help themselves.
