On a magical, inspiring and peaceful spot, on a hill above the village of Mochlos, Villa Alkestis looks out over the vast blue sea of Crete, the beautiful islet of Mochlos with its Minoan ruins, the imposing “Kastelas” peak and other mountains, Mochlos and the nearby villages and the lovely farming landscape with its small plain, hills and foothills cloaked in silver-green olive trees. The other perspective of modern Crete. Breathtaking view, luxury and calmness are probably the three words that describe better the Villa Alkestis experience.

About the neighbourhood
Mochlos is a picturesque village on the north-eastern coastline of Crete. A 5.000 years history, from the Minoan era to nowadays is condensed in a small traditional village. It has all a traveller is looking for, like taverns, restaurants, caffees, bars, shops, markets etc. Traditional flavor blends in with qualitative amenities and services. The breathtaking view, the blissful calmness and the virgin natural environment are probably the three characteristics that better describe our place. 'A bit of paradise' is the most common expression among our guests.
There are so many and different places and ways to experience the eastern part of Crete that it's really a great challenge. A car is strongly recommended as public transport are still absent. On the other hand, by relaxing and sunbathing around the pool you can close your eyes and travel the whole world.
