When choosing Villa Talea as your holiday home you will have easy access to both the east and west of Crete. The local village Exantis is a very small place with only 50-60 residents. Unlike many other places on Crete's north coast tourism has not influenced Exantis a lot. Here it is primarily agriculture in the little valley that surrounds the village, which employs people. First and foremost it is olives, but also citrus fruits, wine and various vegetables. 1041Κ910O2881201More

This is a comfortable detached villa with no neighbours. Beautiful surroundings with views of a nearby village and mountains in the distance. The coast is a short distance away. The villa is fairly priced and highly recommended.

About the neighbourhood
Villa Talea lies ourside the very small village of Exantis. In the early nineties around 100 people lived in the village. Today, perhaps as few as 50-60 individuals have permanent residence here. The entire village is situated around a small crossroads. (There are really only three roads and a few smaller alleys in the village). The village center is a small square where a few mulberry trees provide shade in summer. Across the street is Taverna Maria, the gathering place for the locals.
