About the property


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 has a separate, fully equipped kitchen with a fireplace, large living room with an arch separating the living from the dining room, spacious bedroom with double bed (15 sq.m.) overlooking the eastern courtyard and a large bathroom with Jacuzzi. The living room of the ground floor has traditional furnishing and a fireplace. 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. Here visitors can enjoy coffee or a meal in the lounge by the pool or dine under the wooden pergola. The floor of the hostel consists of a bedroom (15 sq.m.) with two single beds, one bedroom (23 sq.m.) with double bed and a sofa - bed for two persons, bathroom with hydro massage shower (Jacuzzi).

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.

Beautiful villa, with every detail thought of.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at Villa Agrielia. It was the perfect base to explore and a secluded refuge to return to. Stelios and Maria could not have been more welcoming or helpful and it was lovely to be left a selection of local treats to enjoy. The villa is perfect, if you like a quiet spot away from the usual tourist routes, although it's easy to get to Heraklion and other sights and is only 15 minutes from the airport. Plenty of shops in the next village, Episkopi, and a lovely taverna recommended by Stelios.

The villa is beautifully traditional with cool rooms and plenty of space. The main terrace and pool area are green and leafy, totally private and very sunny. There are three other terraces and balconies to choose from or seek solitude on. House is very well equipped with excellent aircon in the bedrooms. We only found Greek TV channels but we didn't miss the TV and the wifi is great, certainly able to stream a movie when needed.

All in all, a lovely holiday. Thank you!

Crete holiday

  • 4 of 5

The villa is lovely, and well equipped with a beautiful outside area and pool. Stelios, Maria and the extended family were helpful, informative and very friendly.

However there is an issue with the cicadas (tzitzikas) who nest in the trees around by the pool, the noise they make was intolerable.

Very well appointed and good attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

Communication throughout the booking process was excellent and we were greeted at the villa by the owner Stelios who was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed staying at there for the week and exploring the local area. It was very clean and well maintained. Stelios had thought of everything needed to make the stay as comfortable as possible.

In English and French after

We travel a lot around the world especially in Greece and we love Crete which is a world apart. People are so hospitable and welcoming that we were touched by the kindness. You dive in the real Crete atmosphere when you arrive at Sgourokefali. The small village which is just 10 min far away from Heraklion (very easy to find) is charming with local people and so friendly. (We love)

The property is a lovely and spacious villa and well equipped (everything is furnished even a baby cot a baby and above all if you need something the owner will bring you immediately what you need). We do have really appreciated the discretion as well.

Please try this Villa you won't get away from this wonderful stay...

Stelios and Maria, Yaya Maria and Dimitri are so lovely people that you feel very close friends.

YOU HAVE TO GO THERE for the Villa is perfect, for the people of course but you have to have go there for the Kourabies (cake with sesame) made by Yaya Maria is to die for !

The property is very very clean and cleaned twice a week by Konstantina (miss Tornado : We call her Tornado because after the cleaning everything is gleaming).

The pool is just a perfect for adults and kids. We loved@ to swing at night and early mornings. A shower outside is there.

The property is very quiet very confortable.


Nearly Sgourokefali in Stamnoi go to the restaurant Kosmas (the best for local food).

We really appreciated this area for not far from Heraklion and lovely beaches in Gouves.

Bonjour à ceux qui hésitent d'aller dans un endroit magnifique ....Soyez les bienvenu(e)s ! Car vous allez plonger dans le vrai monde des crétois. Ceux qui d'authentiques personnes et surtout charmantes.

Ils sont gentils ces gens. Simples et accueillants. On les aime comme cela !

Ils sont si rares.

Nous avons aimés...comment dire ! TOUT ! Absolument TOUT ! Rien à redire sur rien ! Ce site mérite pourtant d'être dans les meilleurs guides.

La Villa est très bien exposée. Les chambres spacieuses et surtout tout est équipé y'a tout !

Sgourokefali est a peine à 10 min d'Heraklion et des plages alentours ! Belle plage à Kato Gouves. Agia Pelagia.

Rien n'est loin et des attractions sont proches.

Les gâteaux de Yaya Maria c'est une tuerie ! Franchement, ça vaut le détour et détour risque d'être long car on a plus envie de partir !...

Je recommande Vivement cet endroit.
