Everywhere within Heraklion city centre is within an easy and enjoyable walk. This is where you should be if you want to experience living in a city several thousand years old. Be aware that many of the streets are not suitable for modern vehicles and large parts of the city centre are (thankfully) pedestrianised. The alleys off this "street" can only be accessed on foot which makes this a cut-through (just) for cars and (more sensibly) for motorbikes. Within the flat none of this will bother you but if you have a hire car you will be disadvantaged. There is no public parking except the streets and brown field sites where you will pay. There is one at the beginning of the street. Pay your fees each day (£5), explain when you want your car and they will advise on where to park. After we damaged our hire car (a 4WD truck, yes really!) trying to get up the street to the flat, we parked it and wheeled our baggage up the street. Don't take heavy bags, you will need to lift them up a staircase to the first floor flat. This is not an affluent area, many of the properties are derelict and grafitti is everywhere. We experienced no personal security issues in these alleyways. The two rooms of the flat have stone walls which insulate against noise and heat. Air conditioning in the main room is invaluable. The fourth wall is largely single glazed windows and shutters for privacy and protection against the sun. Noise streams in and out of these (Heraklion centre is under the flight path). This and surrounding properties occupy segments of the open space between them. In the southern mediterranean, people (and their dogs) spend mornings/evenings outside or inside with their doors and windows open. If you are not ready for this, go and lock yourself away in a hotel bedroom somewhere. At night the higher you can get, the more chance of a breeze. Above the kitchen/bathroom there is a table and chairs, great when the sun goes down but if there is a tremor, you'll wonder whether being so high was sensible! Everything works (immersion heater for hot water, wireless internet router, oven etc) so long as someone in the flat below remembers to turn on the pump for your water supply! We enjoyed some great meals from the kitchen (suggestion for improvement: a chopping board). This is a place for travellers interested in experiencing, for a time, life as the locals live it. Enjoy!

It is on the edge of a very typical Crete village close to Neapoli, and has been carefully and tastefully modernised from a traditional Cretan stone cottage. It is about 50 minutes from Heraklion, 15 from Ayios Nikolaos and 7 from Neapoli. A car is essential, but gives one access to all of Crete east of Heraklion and to at least part of it to the west. The photos show primarily the living room (kitchen, dining and easy-chair areas of a single long room), which has been recently decorated and comfortably furnished using traditional materials and objects; the three bedrooms (2 double, 1 twin) are spacious, comfortable and well-furnished. All rooms have air-conditioners. The whole was spotlessly clean and fully equipped with all one could need. After a day out, it felt each time as a place one really looked forward to returning to. The caretaker, Poppy, is a very friendly person, who, despite our late arrival at 3.30 a.m., after a delayed flight, met us at Neapoli, showed us the route from there and round the house, and had put a beautiful bowl of fruit for us in the fridge. She supplied much detailed local information about places to visit, advice on where to shop, etc, and repeatedly asked us to contact her by phone if we needed anything else. Above all she made us very warmly and genuinely welcome. There are not as many renovated original houses available for holiday rent in Crete as we expected. We have rented properties of similar kind in other countries, and this was one of the best we have ever seen. Compared with the dense concrete jungle we saw advertised on the Malia area coast, this was paradisal. We were very sad to leave it and would advise speedy booking!
