The villa has a magnificent view, looking 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. This is a magical, inspiring and peaceful spot.
Mochlos is a picturesque seaside village in the heart of a fantastic natural landscape on the north coast of Crete, between Sitia and Agios Nikolaos. The islet of Mochlos was the site of one of the greatest harbours and naval centres of Minoan Crete. The greatest and brightest collection of Minoan gold jewellery and diadems was discovered here.
Mochlos offers exceptional eating and recreational facilities. Picturesque taverns "lapped by the waves" offer authentic Cretan cooking, enjoy waters-ports and boat trips, go on nature walks with mountain guides, etc.
30 kilometres from Mochlos is the town of Ierapetra and 35 kilometres away are those of Sitia and Agios Nikolaos. All three towns have hospitals - health centres, urban services of all kinds, shops and amusement facilities. Villa Calandra can be used as a base for excursions to nearby places, such as: Sitia - Toplou Monastery - Vai Palm Forest - Minoan Palace of Zakros; Agios Nikolaos - Elounda - Spinalonga Island; Ierapetra - Chryssi Island in the Libyan Sea; Lassithi Plateau - Dictean Cave (birthplace of Zeus); Minoan Palace of Malia.
