The villa, three bedrooms and three bathrooms.

A stone villa dating back from the 19th century which has been completely restored following traditional standards.

In the past, it was the home of the village winemaker, and so the old wine press was refurbished as well.

The villa can accommodate from 2 to 7 people.

It consists of 3 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and terrace.
Two of the bedrooms have a sea view.

A large kitchen which is open to the living room will accompany you on all your meals.

A beautiful heated pool, surrounded by lush vegetation will allow you to swim throughout the year.


It is ideally located in the heart of Xirosterni and only 8 minutes from the fishing village of Almyrida and its sandy beaches.

Xirosterni is made up of old traditional houses with magnificent views of Souda Bay and the White Mountains.

It is only 2 km from Vamos, 9 km from Kalyves and 6 km from Almyrida beach.

In the nearby village of Gavalochori, 3 km away, guests can visit a traditional Cretan embroidery workshop and a folklore museum.

Xirosterni is known for its music festival which takes place every year on August 5th.
The village was previously known as ‘Viola’ – a pretty local flower.

The new name for the villa is a combination of two Greek words meaning “dry cistern” or “dry well”. You can admire in the garden a perfectly restored cistern.

An ideal place for people who love Crete, Greece, plants, sea and nature.
