A-four-culture resort.

Giannoudi is a Venetian village, characterized from the state as one of unique natural beauty and high cultural value.

On its outskirts, hidden in the hills and with a great view to the Cretan Sea, Monastiriako villas await for you. It is a renovated building which, since the 16th century and during the Venetian domination, had been a monastery.

danah1Monastiriako was characterized as a Historically Preserved Architectural Monument, while its transformation into four traditional villas was completed in 2003 under the supervision of the Archaeology. The names of the villas derive from the Greek mythology: Europe, Lito, Danae and Lida, the four beloved ones of God Zeus, the god of hospitality.

4Each villa is uniquely decorated with antiques referring to the four dominant cultural periods of the Island: Cretan, Arabic, Venetian and Turkish.

The old oil mill, found in the courtyard, demonstrates the continuous olive oil production from the 16th century up to 1965.
