|Minimum Stay||1 - 3 nights|
Newly built studio in the area of Karteros, with wonderful view of mountain and Sea (just opposite Dia Island), in a peaceful environment, inside an olive grove, in walking distance from the beach.
It is ideal to explore the island and relax.
The studio is placed in a traditional Cretan Olive grove in Karteros. Karteros has to offer unique landscape, just outside of Heraklion city. You can visit all the museums and antiquities, return home to relax, and just walk to the beach. Or you can endulge yourselves to exploring the nearby Gorge, or relax at night and have a BBQ. Listening only the night...The studio sleeps comfortably 4 people in one real double bed and in one double futon bed.
Easy access, 5 minutes from the airport, 10 from heraklion port, practically next to national road entry exit to Chania and Lasithi (west and east crete). Numerous beaches all around.
You have your own garden and shared secured parking space, also there is a shared BBQ area.
Interaction with Guests
We live in a house just above the studio, having a large garden to separate us, with fence. Therefore you maintain your privacy and comfort, yet we are there if you need anything, to help or provide (from advice or a cup of coffee...). We cultivate some vegetables to taste, and there is a large fig tree to try as many figs you wish.
The quiet and tranquility is the factor that makes Karteros unique. Plus if you want noise and action you are a short drive from it (Heraklion 7 minutes drive, Hersonissos 15 min. drive, Malia 20 minutes drive etc.). Lots of nice sandy beaches, with sun beds and umbrellas are all around, to enjoy the sea with children or without.
Public transport is close by (the bus stop is 20 meters away) and there is twice a day a bus passing. The area is not of heavy traffic rather scarce traffic therefore no frequent public transport, yet there is one if this helps. We strongly suggest to rent a car to enjoy the island to maximum.
Other Things to Note
The studio is brand new, all furnished with IKEA furniture, quality electrical equipment, happy and colorful, pet friendly if you have your favorite pet with you. Ideal for value for money long term vacations for families or couples.
I am working for years in the internet marketing business as well as in the hotel internet marketing sector, being marketing manager for one of the major incoming agencies in Crete.
My family owns this property for three generations and we are planning develop it, respecting the environment, promoting the area which is really great. One of my best selling points is that I prefer to live there myself!
Alex Alexakis purchased this studio in 1900
First of all the studio is brand new and living practically next door we take good care of it.
We have furnished and decorate it using IKEA, to feel a bit more 'homy' than other rentals, actually we build it like building something for ourselves, respecting the people that will select us.
Karteros area is really the best area in Heraklion!
The property is near the beach (1km) with sand sunbeds and umbrellas, without however the noise and sounds of bars, people etc, being located in a traditional cretan olive grove. You can start form here and easily be in the national road for any excursion, you can go to knossos or visit any of the antiquities and quickly return to a quiet and tranquil environment.
If you are in to hiking you can walk the karteros gorge which is really magnificent.
The city is only 7 kms away so in 7-8 minutes you can be at the centre of heraklion, walking around the shops and the cafes.
