The space
Among olive trees and cypresses, just above a river spurting water all year long, lies a peaceful village called "Agios Georgios" that locals call "Tourtoulous". On the top of the village lies "Pera Horio", a small area with only 10 residences, where the houses are built.

Joy Villa (and Dion Villa), is a stone built house, patiently restored with respect by its owner, who, being an artist born in Sitia, turned them into contemporary and colorful holiday houses which contain all modern amenities.

Maintaining every architectural detail of the past, the house consists of two cozy double bed bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living area with fascinating fireplace. In the bathrooms, stone built arches and pieces of rock are revealed along with modern amenities.

JOY villa has its unique style of various antiques and art pieces inspired by traditional and rural Cretan households. Big windows reveal panoramic views of the surrounding mountains of Sitia that lay in the background. Privacy is tucked within the inner courtyards which lend the house an absolutely unique vintage charm.

House is located 13 km from the North and 15 km from the South shore of Crete where unique, turquoise water beaches such as Kouremenos, Vai, Erimoupoli, Xerocampos, Hiona, Diaskari, etc exist.
