AINE of KNOCKAINE
Áine (roughly pronounced "on-yah" or "awn-yah" depending on location) is an Irish female given name.
Irish Goddess of "LOVE AND FERTILITY"
Aine, The Irish goddess of Love and fertility was worshipped on Midsummer Eve by the local people who lit up her hill with torches. She is an Irish goddess of summer, wealth and sovereignty.
Aine was the daughter of Eogabail, who was the foster son of the Manx sea god Manannan Mac Lir.
Her main responsibility was to encourage human love, although one mortal lover of hers, King Aillil Olom of Munster, paid for his passionate audacity with his life. When he attempted to force himself upon Aine and rape her, she slew him with her magic.
Aine's worship was always associated in Ireland with agriculture, because, as a goddess of fertility, she had command over crops and animals. Even as late as the last century, celebrations were still held in her honour on Midsummer Eve at Knockainy, or "Aines Hill", in County Kerry.
ABOUT US AND OUR GOALS
Aine Cretan Villa Holidays is a UK registered company so all payments are made via the UK.
The name of the company Aine is Gaelic for Anne. Born in Dublin, Ireland I moved to the UK as a child.
After moving to Crete my husband built a very successful property management company. After many years I decided to expand with “Aine” and build this rental company.
We aim to provide a special rental company for our guests. We will provide the little added extras for clients; fuss them that little bit more without invading their space.
We know all our home owners personally and have worked with them for many years. We have built an excellent working relationship on trust and the high standards we provide.
We deal directly with property managers. So once here you do not go through third parties you deal directly with Aine representatives.
Our knowledge of the area is extensive and throughout the summer months we are based here in Crete for your every need. We aim to provide you with a stress free holiday year after year.
We have a process for all bookings regarding deposit, payment in full and of course any extras you request.
Guests are given a “contract” with terms and conditions as would be expected for any booking company.
We have a representative that will visit you at your villa after arrival to help with any questions.
We look forward to meeting you on the beautiful Island of Crete.
Aine on Crete,
the jewel of the Greek islands.
Aine Cretan Villa Holidays provide a service for the holiday makers wishing to come to Crete. The welcome received from the Cretan people is not bettered anywhere else in the world. We try to match their welcome in our villas for rent.
We are centered in the Apokoronas area of north west Crete and in the Chania region. This is one of the most beautiful areas of the Mediterranean with surprisingly fertile areas on rocky Crete. The beaches are sandy and the sea is safe for families.
Apokoronas may be named after the ancient city of Ippokoronas which may have been sited near the Venetian fortress at Kera, between Almyrida and Kalyves.
Our offices are located in England but we have people on the ground in this wonderful island, ready to serve and help our customers.
