    This was a very pleasant 9 day stay in one of the nicest holiday homes we have stayed in. It is sympathetically restored, yet has everything you could need including air con, wifi, dishwasher, etc. The village is also very appealing: it has a good cafe, taverna, a couple of butchers and a small store -- larger supermarket type stores are available 3km away in neighbouring larger towns. But we rarely used them, finding most of what we needed in the village itself. With only a handful of holiday lets it has a pleasingly local, working feel. The neighbouring olive groves afford good walks and running terrain, and you are with a short drive of various beaches. We liked it so much we may return again at a cooler time of year to do some more serious walking in the local mountains—the scenery between here and the sheltered beaches at Kali Limares is particularly spectacular, as is the gorge walk at Rouvas; and if you visit the local ruins at Phaistos at 8am when they open, as we did, you will likely have them entirely to yourselves even in high season, for over an hour.

    VASSILIKI is situated on the outskirts of HERAKLION,CRETE. This is a Traditional GREEK Region that offers a (stressless) Holiday Experience for Families with Children or Couples. The Hosts of this Villa give a feeling of friendly hospitality and support right from the beginning. The AMAZING STONE VILLA here in VASILIKI has a touch of Greek Tradition and is well situated over this Countryside. The different Rooms in the Villa have got a beautiful touch of Vintage Look (but WiFi and TV with Greek programs is also included) The Living Room Corner itself looks cosy and inviting! The Bigger Bedroom on the first Floor is very well furnished and has an additional Small Balcony which views into the street uphill. The Smaller Bedroom also on the same Floor has an adjacent and spacious TERRACE VERY suitable for Breakfasts and early Evening Relax Hours From the left Side Corner of the TERRACE you can have a beautiful lighted up View of HERAKLION in the Late Evenings. CRETE has many Churches and Little Chapels around, so also here in VASILIKI itself there is a Church a few steps away from the Villa In General, one definitely needs an own Rental Car to get there and to move around here in the Region. Maybe to drive to the Beaches located closeby OR to be on a well-planned Day Trip to the Sight-Seeing Spots in the North and South Ends of CRETE. A Day Trip or an overnight Stay in SANTORINI is a must!!! This Island is simply beautiful!!!! Back in VASILIKI..... The TRIPITI BEACH (3km away) from the Villa is very inviting because One has to drive through a very narrow Valley just a few minutes before you reach the Car Parking Area at TRPITI This Drive is exciting too as one drives through curvy Roads around the Mountains Not to forget the Panaromic Point of View on One of the Corners of the curvy Road It's okay to step out and make a break here filming or taking Snapshots of the different Mountains and Abysses around. Besides all this.... One shouldn't forget to visit the Traditional Greek Restaurants nearby and try out the Traditional Greek Food. TABERNA is translated to Restaurant in Greek Language....just like the Local People say it! If one really needs a Warm Summer Holiday then it's a lovely Experience here in CRETE, combined with a memorable Stay in the AMAZING STONE VILLA in VASiLIKI.
