Relaxing after a busy day.

  • 5 of 5

This is the ground floor apartment in a three storey house. It is spacious, comfortable and well furnished with a mix of modern and old ornaments. The apartment is private, even though the owners live above. It is conveniently located to Heraklion and Knossos. Places like Phaistos are easy day trips by car. Our hosts provided for all our needs, with samples of home made Cretan foods, wines and pastries. These were also available to purchase at very reasonable prices, if you found the samples were not enough. Our hosts provided us with all the information we needed to get around and invited us for a meal. Thank you for your generosity. It was a lovely stay, but too short.

Relaxation guaranteed

  • 5 of 5

We cannot recommend Pantelis's accommodation enough. It is an oasis of tranquillity, so far away from hordes of tourist and yet so near to Heraklion and to Knossos.

The appartement is very pretty and clean. It has all the amenities that you need. A very beautiful and well maintained garden with beautiful views is a plus.

The cherry on the cake is the host couple who are so welcoming and generous that you will want to stay forever!!

***A few words about Heraklion region***

Heraklion is Crete’s main entrance hub and is situated at the center of the island (north shore). The Minoan Palace of Knossos lies in the city’s outskirts while the archaeological museum boasts a large collection of Minoan artifacts from all over Crete. Although Heraklion is a bustling city, the calm and picturesque countryside, only a few minutes away by car will take you back in time. In the region's villages you will enjoy authentic Cretan cuisine made with quality local olive oil and other local produce. A winery tour will allow you to experience the island’s wine-making tradition, going back thousands of years. During the day you can enjoy swimming and sunbathing in numerous sandy beaches lying in the north and south of the region. Heraklion is therefore a must stop during a multi-day island tour. It is also a convenient base for a short trip to Crete since one can easily combine visits to historical sites with great swimming opportunities and culinary delights.

***What to do in Heraklion***

For history and archaeology enthusiasts the starting point of the tour is Knossos, the largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete, also called Europe's oldest city. Heraklion's archeological museum displays exhibits dating back to the Neolithic era in 3,500 BC while the medieval fortress of Koules ("Castello a Mare"), situated in Heraklion’s port is a reminder of the town's medieval past. Furthermore, the Historical Museum exhibits items from the 4th century AD up to and including the Second World War. The Natural History museum exhibits the diverse flora and fauna of the Eastern Mediterranean region. The Cretan Aquarium will allow you to take a glimpse of the marine life inhabiting the waters surrounding the island.

During the evening you can visit one of the numerous small restaurants ("Rakadika") situated in the town’s old center (near the Morozini fountain), which serve delicious variety plates along with Cretan spirit "Raki". And if you are up to it you can continue your night out until the early morning hours in one of the local bars and clubs.
