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.

Beautiful villa with lot of comfort

  • 5 of 5

The villa is one of the most beautiful houses we've ever been to. Carefully renovated with a good eye for Details and comfort for the guests.

Very clean, with a Nice view from the Pool. Maria and Stelios are very friendly and sympathic houseowners. The figues and fresh eggs from his father delicious and very welcomed ;-)

Good infrastructure with 3 supermarkets, bakery etc. in Episkopi (2km), and not far from the aeroport (about 20 minutes by car).

We recomande this house without hesitation and are looking forward to pass another holiday there.

It is a beautiful stone built Cretan village house,with excellent facilities and swimming pool with fantastic mountain views all around and very close to very good beaches.The accommodation is 5 star with extremely high standard house keeping.Stelios and Maria maintain a friendly but efficient hospitity and the wellbeing of the guest a is their priority as they understand that we are on holiday so they provide all that is necessary to achieve it.

The house and the yards are extremely well maintained.Stepping in the villa you feel you are transported.in the past but you have all the mod cons.

Enjoy and relax at Villa Agrielia

  • 5 of 5

For the 2nd time, we had a wonderful holiday period (August 2016) in Villa Agrielia. The villa is situated in a small and very peaceful village. The owners, Stelios and Maria provided us with a warm welcome and we enjoyed their kind hospitality. The villa has all modern equipment, all items are functioning properly and the villa is very clean and well maintained. The house-keeping is excellent. Upon arrival, one immediately feels at home. If we had any questions during our stay, Stelios gave us a prompt reply. The villa is decorated with many flowers and plants and the garden/swimming pool and terrace are perfect to relax and enjoy the Cretan climate. Villa Agrielia may be recommended for those who are looking for a villa away from the major touristic sites in the area of Heraklion (that can be reached in 15-20 min by car), with all modern equipment available. We will remember this holiday period as one of the best we ever had.
