Villa Athena covers 120 sq. m. and is suitable for people with special needs. The Villa has a heated pool, a jacuzzi and BBQ facilities.

The space

According to greek mythology, three goddesses Hera, Athena and Aphrodite fought for the Apple of Discord. Τhe apple bore the inscription “Kallisti", which translates “To the Prettiest One”. The goddesses petitioned Zeus to make the final decision of who should get the apple, but Zeus pointed Paris. Each of the goddesses attempted to sway his opinion in their favour. Hera promised Paris political power, Athena offered war victories, but clever Aphrodite pledged him the most beautiful woman on Earth, so she got the Apple of Discord.

In the beautiful village of Kyriana, close to the lively town of Rethymno, Kallisti Villas, three brand new, luxurious Villas that overlook the cretan country, will also make your choice difficult, as to which one you should be your loved one for this summer. In this magical environment, Kallisti Villas offer you hospitality and high standard services to make your stay, one to remember. Kallisti Villas were created in harmony with the island’s natural environment, as well as offering all contemporary facilities and modern design, as well as easy access to the closest sandy beach, which is just 5 Kms away. Also, a restaurant, cafe & mini market can be found within walking distance from the Villa, just 300 meters on foot! Kallisti Villas welcome you in Crete and invite you to discover it!
