Phaistos Villas is just a fifty minutes’ drive from Heraklion International Airport 'N. Kazantzakis' to the south of Crete, at the outskirts of the picturesque village of Sivas. It is a complex of three stone-built villas, each given a name from Greek mythology: the Muse Erato and the Nymphs Dafne and Kastalia. The complex, situated at the foot of the village, offers a panoramic view of the Messara valley and the distinctive blue of the south Cretan sea in the distance.

About the neighbourhood
The historic village of Sivas, of some 500 inhabitants, mostly farmers, is 62km away from Heraklion and is built on the western slope of Asterousia mountain at an altitude of 110m looking over the valley of Messara and the beautiful blue of the south Crete sea. In 1980 Sivas was declared a 'listed traditional settlement site' by a decree of the Greek Ministry of Culture. The location of the village is ideal for exploring the world famous sites of the area like the ancient palace of Phaistos as well as other places of interest like the archaeological sites of Phaistos, Kommos, Gortyna and Agia Triada.
