From Heraklion airport, take the road that passes by the airport, towards the traffic lights (i.e. to the left when you see this road, getting out of the airport). At the traffic lights, turn right and, after some 200 metres, take the exit on your right, to get in the national road, direction Rethymno/Chania. After 7 kilometres on the national road, take the exit, direction Mires/Timbaki. Be careful, this exit is just 100 metres after another bigger one, that would lead you to Heraklion centre. At the end of this exit curve, at the stop, take on your right, then follow this road until Mires.
Pass Mires town and go ahead for another 8 kilometres approximately. You will see signs for Phaestos archaeological site. Just follow them, pass in front of the site, get down the hill, pass the small village of Agios Ioannis (be careful, at the exit of the village, the main road turns left - follow it, and don't go in the smaller road that goes straight). You will soon find a crossroads, where you turn right. After 5 kilometres, you will arrive in Pitsidia. Go ahead on this road. Before getting out of the village, you will find our house on your right.
