The Holiday home

The Phaistos Villas Resort was built in 2015 and consists of three traditional-style stone houses and a communal pool. The villas can be rented individually (for up to four people) or together (for up to 13 people).
The villas are all decorated in their own individual styles, which gives them their special charm.
Phaistos villas is a complex of three stone-built villas, each given a name from Greek mythology: the Muse Erato and the Nymphs Dafne and Kastalia. The complex, situated at the foot of the village, offers a panoramic view of the Messara valley and the distinctive blue of the south Cretan sea in the distance.

This peaceful location can become your springboard for exploring the historical sites and places of unique beauty in the area. You can choose between staying in and relaxing around the pool, hopping off on a few minutes drive to the world famous archaeological site of Phaistos, or enjoying the wonderful golden-sand beaches of Matala and Kalamaki. The serenity of the environment, the dry and healthy climate of the area as well as the local food specialities guarantee an unforgettable stay.

The complex was constructed using authentic materials by local craftsmen following the traditional architecture of rural Crete in order to perfectly blend in with the environment and be an integral part of the settlement. The three villas were built in different levels offering independency, privacy and uninterrupted views of the surroundings. A lovely 40m2 pool of 1,5m depth situated in the center of the complex, can be enjoyed by guests of all three villas.

The property has a TUV certification ISO 14001:2004 and is registered and approved by the Greek National tourist board (EOT).

Each villa was designed with care to offer its guests every possible modern amenity.

The villas can be rented individually or can be booked together to accommodate bigger parties.

Phaistos Villas is just a fifty minutes’ drive from Heraklion International Airport "N. Kazantzakis" to the south of Crete, at the outskirts of the picturesque village of Sivas.

The drive from Heraklion takes you through the biggest Cretan wine-growing district of Archanes and the big archaeological excavation called Agia Deka and Gortys. Gortys is one of the most important historical towns in Crete with a history of 6,000 years and one of the most extensive archaeological sites in Greece. It was the site of the first human habitation of Crete at the end of the Neolithic period (5th millennium )
Every villa is spread over two levels. The top level has two stylish, high beam-ceilinged bedrooms and a large modern bathroom with shower facility. The muted colours add to the light, airy and relaxed atmosphere.

Location and surroundings of object

The resort is located at the bottom of the picturesque village of Sivas in Southern Crete and offers panoramic views of the Messara valley and the sea in the distance.

Sivas is 65 km or one hour's drive from the airport of Heraklion. From Chania airport the car journey takes about hours.

The famous bay of Matala with its Minoan caves is only 5 km away, and it takes only five minutes by car to the beautiful and natural sandy beach of Komos.
The historic village of Sivas has about 400 inhabitants, most of whom are farmers.
The origin of the village's name is not clear, but most likely it derives from "Siva", the Arabic word for water as there are many underground rivers and springs in the area.

Sivas has retained its unique character in the course of its long history which goes back to the year 1000 at least. Today, village life is very relaxed. Visitors are welcomed by the cafes and taverns in the village square offering traditional hospitality.

The village offers some interesting architecture. In 1980 the Greek Ministry of Culture added Sivas to the official list of traditional settlements.

The village is ideally situated for exploring the world-famous sights of the area, such as the ancient Minoan palace of Phaistos, or other attractions such as the archaeological sites of Gortyna and Agia Triada, the Greek monastery "Moni Odigitria" and of course the beautiful beaches of Matala, Komos, Kali Limenes, Agio Farago, Lentas, Tripiti, Preveli and many others.

For your self-catering needs there are a butcher's shop and some small supermarkets that also sell fresh bread. Furthermore, there is a pottery with beautiful products in the village square.
