Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Sgourokefali - AGRIELIA VILLA HERAKLION CRETE


Agrielia Villa | Sgourokefali | Heraklion Crete

The villa “AGRIELIA” is housed in a restored traditional stone house of two

floors(178,93 m²) in the village Sgourokefali in Heraklion. By decision of the Municipality of Heraklion – Urban Planning, the hostel was characterized as traditional. The restoration was done with more care by artisans of the stone so as not to lose the character of the house. It retains all the elements of traditional architecture, combining respect for tradition with the comforts of a modern guesthouse.

The ground floor of the hostel around two courtyards is filled with flowers, colors, smells, where guests can relax and enjoy the view. In the courtyard entrance (west terrace) there is an old well and old stone staircase, which give a specific tone in the place.

The eastern courtyard of the hotel has a swimming pool (Pool size: 4m width. / Length 6m. / Depth 1.40 m). The pool water is fresh, not sea, disinfected with a modern and eco-system with ozone. This system gives the best disinfection with minimal use of chemicals and also provides ozone therapy. The place has a barbeque.

ACTIVITIES CANYON OF KARTEROS The Canyon of Karteros is 1.5 km far away from Villa Agrielia The canyon of Karteros is full of history, traditions, rich vegetation, a lot of waters and fauna that we meet in the rivers of Crete. Recently the municipalities of region did lots of work in order that the canyon will be approachable, in all its length. Walking up to the canyon we meet various old buildings such as old little churches on the rocks, old watermills, and other ruins, thus we can easily draw the conclusion that in the old days the Human presence was intense in the canyon. Nikos Kazantzakis Museum The museum of N.Kazantzakis is 8 km far away from Villa Agrielia General Information: The Nikos Kazantzakis Museum pays tribute to the important intellectual, author, thinker, philosopher, politician and traveller Nikos Kazantzakis. The Museum is made up of a cluster of buildings in the central square of the historical village of Varvari, now known as Myrtia.
