|The Green Villa in Archanes - well priced 200 m2 villa, private pool, good reviews|
A little bit underneath Archanes, 17 kilometers south east of the Cretan capital Heraklion you will find the small village of Katalagari, close to the Dikti mountains and the Peza valley. Katalagari is a quiet and small traditional Cretan village with little tourism, with the lively and larger village of Archanes (with banks, farmacies, many shops, restaurants and supermarkets) at a stones throw distance. The approximately 300 inhabitants of Katalagari live mainly from live stock and agriculture and from producing wine. There are a couple of minimarkets, kafenions and taverns in the village and all other facilities you find in the nearby villages of Archanes and Peza.
Featuring a private swimming pool and a sun terrace, Green Villa is located in Kalagarion Village. This stone, self-catering property offers a garden with BBQ facilities and free WiFi in all rooms. Opening to a balcony, terrace and patio with pool, mountain and garden views, the three-bedroom Green Villa includes a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area. The seating area is fitted with a fireplace and a satellite, flat-screen TV with DVD player.
Grocery deliveries can be arranged at Green Villa. Bikes are available free of charge. Laundry and ironing service are also possible. Heraklion International Airport is located 12 km away. Free public parking is available on site.
We stayed here for four days in September 2015. We were very kindly received by the owner Maria who led us through the villa and gave some explanation about, among other things, the devices that were in the villa. While doing this we found out that the DVD player did not work. An hour later she came back with her husband and a new DVD player was installed, which worked perfectly, and the "problem" was solved.
The villa is quite large (about 200m2). The three bedrooms and the bathroom (with bath and shower) are located on the ground floor. Two of the bedrooms open onto a terrace. On this floor the wifi is connected and also the internet is the best received.
Via a marble staircase you come to the large living area with an L-shaped sofa, two large dining tables with chairs and a large kitchen. You can cook with gas or electricity (for the enthusiast, we have only boiled some eggs). There is an oven, a toaster, a hot water cooker, a coffeemaker, a microwave and complete crockery with cutlery. Maria had put some things for us in the fridge and there was fresh bread upon arrival. Also on this floor there is a second toilet. The living room opens onto a large terrace with seats overlooking the green surroundings, the various villages and the mountains in the background.
One floor higher up there is another room that opens onto a large roof terrace with panoramic views. All the way down you will find a garden with seating areas, a barbecue and a table with chairs. This part of the garden turns into a lawn that leads to the pool with sunbeds and umbrella. This just about describes the villa. Everything was spotlessly clean and the owner was very nice.
