Oros Villas are two beautiful villas on Crete for rent. Nearby are Rethymnon-Axos, Milopotamos Valley, Ida Mountains, the Unesco Psiloritis Geopark. Villa Olga and Villa Yorgos have a perfect view of the Psiloritis, Crete’s highest mountain (2456m). Both have free WIFI, a shared swimming pool, barbecue, sports field, their own chapel from 1750 and are situated near Axos, a village with a historical centre and a natural water wellspring. The inhabitants are very hospitable and Axos has 7 Byzantine churches over a 1000 years old. Also nearby are villages such as Livadia, Zoniana, Kalyvos and the Diskouri Monastery. In the immediate surroundings are the beautiful caves of Melidoni (Gerontospilos) and Zoniana (Sendoni). Also Knossos/Heraklion is not far away. You can have lovely walks in the Ida Mountains and enjoy real nature. Hiking trails, olive groves and shepherds, ancient churches, monasteries (Vossakos, Arkadi), the famous cooking and wine. In 15 minutes by car you can reach Anogia and see local heroes (Partisans), tapestry and the Nida Plateau (birthplace of Zeus). Also visit the Skinakas Observatory. You can enjoy this very old area of calm, beautiful nature and soak in the authentic Greek island life. You can’tch owls, bats, swallows and hawks nearby, as well as goats and sheep. And grapes of course. Restaurants/taverns, shops, medical assistance (Anogia, Perama) are nearby.

Crete. As well as the magnificent beaches and warm seas, the size and physical variety of the island of Crete invites exploration, and Oros Villas, located at Road Mourtzanas-Gonion, Axos, 74051, Greece, is the ideal staring point. Uniquely among Greek islands, Crete’s mountainous spine creates a sense of spaciousness, a life distinct from sea and sand. Fly-drive holidays to Crete – or simply the hire of a car for some days during your stay in Oros Villas, – will enable you to seek out the rugged formations of the interior, the fertile countryside and tiny chapels filled with frescoes, the mountain villages where time has stood still. Always, the authentic spirit of the islanders, their fierce independence and pride – as well as the best cooking and most delicious meals that constitute the famed “Cretan Diet” – will more likely be found where few others are looking. With so much to see, with dolphins to watch, shaded squares to paint, olive trees and wild orchids, Minoan remains and sweeping beaches, no wonder Crete holidays and Oros Villas are revisited so often.
