APOSPERITIS, A Refined House Inside The Vineyards & Cretan Myths
average rating of 5.0 based on 3 reviews

A lovely small apartment in the mountains 17 km S of Iraklion

  • 5 of 5

About 1 km S of the village of Archanes (pop. 4000), in the middle of the vines lie a few houses that serve as a fantastic tourist resort, for those looking for a quiet getaway. As we were there in September we hardly saw or heard any other tenants (although a few were there).

As it at nearly 500m altitude the weather is nice, and not too hot. We used it for daily tours to Archaeological sites (Knossos, Phestos, Gortyn) + nature + various beaches. A car is really a must.

The service and hospitality is perfect. I highly recommend this place.

Orion House, Eliathos, Archanes, Greece

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Eliathos was such fun. The house was immaculate and comfortable, the private back porch lovely and the swimming pool refreshing.

Argiros, the manager is knowledgeable about the history of the area, places of interest to hike, as well as restaurants and markets in town.

We found the signs posted in town to be helpful in finding the property. I do recommend this for family and friends. A visitor from California

Très bel endroit au calme dans les collines

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable à Eliathos. Les appartements sont confortables et décorés avec goût. L'environnement, jardins, piscine sont parfaits. La voiture est en effet nécessaire pour profiter des environs et des bons petits restaurants du village en contrebas! Bel endroit pour se reposer, marcher dans les collines ou découvrir les sites des environs.
