  • 5 of 5

"Cet appartement, dans un village très préservé, est tout simplement magnifique. Prendre son café sur la terrasse, avec le seul bruit des moutons et des oiseaux, et profiter du paysage extraordinaire des champs d''oliviers à l''infini...Quel régal!!!

Le propriétaire est incroyablement serviable et sympathique. Nous n''en avons connu rarement de meilleur ( nous allons en Grèce chaque année depuis 13 ans ).

Si vous voulez découvrir autre chose que la plage ( le village en est assez éloigné ), alors n''hésitez pas.

Encore un grand merci à Manthos et Julie

From Heraklion airport follow directions to the east for Agios Nikolaos.Turn right off the main highway after 9klm and follow the sign for Anopolis and Watercity. Turn right at the bridge junction and follow the road up the hill approximately 2.5klm until you reach the centre of the village of Anopolis. The Villa Taxiarchis is right next to the tiny Archangelos Church.

Quiet unspoilt tranquial traditional village life.Easy TO meet greekS from the village and practice the language. Excellant traditional local taverna. Visit the famous Monastery of St Yiannis just a 5 min walk from the house and which is seen clearly from the balacony. Take country walks through the beautiful olive groves and vineyards .Collect flowers. Paint and draw the fabulous views. Bring binoculars for some excellent bird watching. Ten minutes walk from the Handicraft Park WHERE you can vist and watch local technicians at work and purchase their goods, (Pottery,Metalwork)and also visit Local Cheese, ice cream and olive oil factory.
