We are in the early 20th century. Life is slow. People do not have much but they are happy. They come together every day. Their homes are always open. Like their hearts. You are always welcome here.
Villa Barbagiannis carries all the characteristics of an authentic Cretan home. All modern comforts and amenities are there of course, to make sure you have a comfortable stay.
Stone is everywhere, as is wood. The villa opens in a spacious living area. In the back there is a small fully equipped kitchen with beautiful old reclaimed tile work and an elegantly tiled bathroom, with a small bath. There are 2 bedrooms. The main bedroom is on the second floor featuring a private bathroom and a private balcony, while the second one is on the ground floor in a room that will make you feel like you are in a cave. Delicate filigreed wood panels are used as room dividers creating a romantic effect.
There is one big balcony with furniture situated by the pool with breathtaking views of the mountains.
Do Notice: Kastellos village traditional houses has 4 houses with a sharing pool, so the pool and exterior areas are shared with other guests
Cretan countryside and traditional way of life is what you find in Kastellos village. The Cretan way of life has been kept same here, frozen in time. Magical views of landscape and the sea, only 10 minutes of driving away from the beach of Georgioupolis. The village is located on the top of a greenish hill, and when you stay here you have the feeling of a king in the castle. Kastellos name means “castle” in the Cretan local dialect.
By staying here you can feel the warm Cretan hospitality of the people and taste the local cuisine in the tavern only a few meters away from the houses. Moreover, a few kilometers from kastellos village is the lake of Kournas, the biggest lake of Crete, a famous attraction with many shops and taverns.
