Discover beautiful beaches and the real meaning of Cretan ‘Filoxenia” – a warm hearted “Welcome” extended to all visitors. Voroi is very close to the archaeological site of Phaistos and the Libyan Sea. All year round you can rent the villa and enjoy the natural settings each season offers. History of the house Villa Siornikoletos is a beautifully renovated 19th century traditional stone house offering all the comforts you need for a very relaxing holiday. The villa was built in 1890 by Siornikoletos a doctor - from Venetian ancestors that had settled in Crete. In fact, the house was characterized a monument by the Ministry of Culture in 2004 as it is a remarkable example of an urban house of the last decade of the 19th century with morphological elements of traditional and neo-classical architecture in its facades, valuable to the study of the architecture in this area. Furthermore the building stands as a reference point to the people of Messara. During the excavations at Phaistos from 1905 – 1913 by the Italian School of Archaeology, the renowned archaeologists F. Halbherr and L. Pernier stayed at the villa. In 2000 the villa was lovingly renovated by its present owner, John Kampourakis, who grew up in this house and has retained the charm of the old house while intergrading all modern comforts that one comes to expect. Villa Siornikoletos is a two floor stone building with sunny high ceiling rooms which can accommodate up to six people. It is 170m² and has 5 rooms, 3 of which are bedrooms. There are 2 double beds and 2 single beds. The large front yard (400m²) with a traditional outdoor barbecue oven offers peace and tranquility under the trees and its flowers. The back yard is a perfect place for breakfast. ΜΗΤΕ: 10 39 Κ 10 00 00161 0 0 More

It is impossible to imagine more gracious hosts than Ioannis and Maria. I don't mean that as an exaggeration, I mean that I really can't imagine what more they could have done to make us feel comfortable and welcome. We arrived to a refrigerator stocked...More
