Two new villas in Mochlos where the modern instyle living meets the ancient local history, invite you to discover this peaceful and authentic place of Crete.
Built on a hill with stunning surroundings and views of the blue sea, we invite you to feel the warmth of the sun and have mindful moments feeling the sea breeze.
Just a few minutes away from the picturesque village of Mochlos and its tavernas where you can always taste fresh fish and the cretan gastronomy at its best. Minoan ruins on the archaeological site on the small islet opposite the village remind us of the importance of Mochlos during the minoan era as one of the most significant spots at that time.
We look forward to welcoming you to this tranquil place, make you feel at home and create your own memories.
These two stone villas, one of them with a private swimming pool, designed with elegance and love for the original, make this destination a guest’s dream. Both houses offer two bedrooms and a bathroom on the ground floor. A bedroom and a bathroom on the first floor as well. In the fully equipped white kitchen, you can prepare your meals and enjoy barbecue time on the terrace.
Acantha Villas are located on a hill just before reaching the picturesque village of Mochlos.
Mochlos is one of the few remaining fishing villages at the north coastline of Crete, between the capital Agios-Nicolaos and Sitia town in the county of Lassithi.
Mochlos is one of the most significant centers of Minoan civilization. The first inhabitants settled here in the first Minoan period (3650-3000 B.C.) However, in 1600/1580-1480 B.C. the city was destroyed due to the volcano in Santorini and the tsounami that followed the eruption. So great is the historic importance of this place that can be proved by the continuous excavations and the exceptional finds which are exposed now in Heraklion Archaelogical Museum.
A visit on this historic island just a few meters opposite the village of Mochlos will make you travel to the past in the ancient times of this place and imagine the daily routine of the Minoan residents.
