  • RODIALOS

    Rodialos is located in the middle of Crete’s northern coast, near the village of Panormon, on one of the island’s many rocky shores. Surrounding the house, are organically cultivated gardens facing the Cretan Sea. The architecture, the colours, the construction materials and the landscape, all evoke a strong recollection of Minoan Crete. Symposia are alternative programs of Cretan cuisine with organic products, offering participants a real and high quality "taste of Crete". We also accommodate groups for yoga workshops, sailing, cycling and walking excursions, tai chi sessions and fishing; combining your holiday with a healthy lifestyle. Since May 2009, Villa Rodialos and the non profit company Vassilis Damvoglou have established a three day cultural and environmental festival in the village of Panormon with theatre, music, exhibitions, seminars and a cycling race. The house is built in harmony with the landscape and reflects the beauty of the Minoan era. Materials are traditional and natural: stone, earth and wood. The paints used are also naturally sourced, like those on a religious icon, and the colours are inspired by the surrounding palette. Rodialos is constructed for its inhabitants to live indoors and outdoors simultaneously. The life of the Ancient Greeks was in the open so there is no main entrance. Modern architecture is adapted to ancient memories, respectful of the geometry of the environment, allowing the house to cool naturally. Rodialos bears no superfluous elements; it is plain, unaffected yet functional, as all ancient Greek dwellings were. The house can comfortably accommodate up to 10 people and provides all contemporary and necessary comforts: The four spacious bedrooms (one of them en-suite, another with two hobs and a fridge) are simple, comfortable and accommodate up to eight people. There are three bathrooms all covered with white marble. Linen is changed and the house cleaned twice a week. Further services upon request. The wide dining room, the terrace and the veranda can accommodate numerous guests for symposia, dinners and parties according to the weather. In the spacious living room there are two more beds for afternoon naps or to accommodate extra guests. We provide central heating, three television sets (in the living room and two of the bedrooms), a landline, broadband internet and a stereo system. The main kitchen has a dishwasher, two refrigerators, a freezer and oven. In the second kitchen is a refrigerator, hobs and more than the necessary pots, plates and cutlery. A laundry room with washing machine, cleaning products, a drying rack and iron, is situated next to one of the bathrooms. Lastly, you will find a large compost heap in the field for recycling residual waste (no oil, bread, pasta or meat). In this land of rare beauty and rich tradition, with a long history and a unique civilization lies "Rodialos Mansion" A pomegranate tree-Afrodite's tree, symbol of harmony and fertility with the symbolic fruit, unbreakably connected to our traditions and legents, the"dark killer" as Elitis the poet, says,dominates the patio and gives the house half its name.The other half is offered by the sea that girds it. "Rodialos" in greek language, means the pomegranate tree of the sea, or, the coast of the pomegranate tree. Rodialos Mansion: Alternative tourism We mean it
