  • La nostra esperienza a casa di Thera è stata molto positiva. Ci ha aspettati per i check-in fino alle 2 di notte per via di un ritardo dell'aereo. Stanza pulitissima ed arredata con molto gusto e ricercatezza, sul tavolinetto anche una boccetta di grappa greca di benvenuto. La colazione è SUPERBA con yogurt greco e mandorle, succo d'arancia bio e affettati per il salato, non mancavano caffè e the a scelta, tutto immersi in un giardino dell'eden con vista sulla piscina. La posizione è buona per visitare l'area archeologica mentre per Iraklio ci vogliono circa 30 minuti di macchina. Consigliata per una tappa ad Iraklion, in un posto molto tranquillo fuori dal caos della città ed immersi nella natura.

  • Arrivare a Theodora House non è stato facile, ma per colpa del mio navigatore, non di certo per Thera che, anzi, è venuta a cercarmi in macchina. La casa è come in foto, forse anche meglio visto che ci siamo state a maggio nella piena fioritura di tutto il giardino. Ospitalità calda e accogliente con un ottimo bicchiere di vino offerto! Piena disponibilità per le mie mille domande su Creta e su dove mangiare. Stanza pulita e arredata meravigliosamente. Doccia enorme favolosa. Piccolo frigo a disposizione per le bibite (una bottiglia di acqua ce l'ha regalata). Ultima nota positiva: la colazione. Preparata sotto al portico a bordo piscina (bellissima e pulita anche la piscina) con yogurt greco gustosissimo, spremuta fresca di arance, pane tostato, affettati e marmellate. Soggiorno al di sopra delle mie aspettative.

  • Absolut empfehlenswert! Tolle Unterkunft, schöne Zimmer, super Frühstück, sehr gepflegte Aussenanlage, nette Vermietern. Sie gibt auch gute Empfehlungen zu Orten und Restaurants. Man fühlte sich wie "zu Hause" Super Preisleistungsverhältnis. Immer wieder gerne!

  • Thera's home is next-level inviting - marble floors, mirrored vanities, and a large double-bed for sleeping in. Her breakfast perfectly complimented the well-apportioned home - all honey and jam :) Location-wise, the villa is nestled in a quiet village. A car enables an easy twenty-minute ride from heraklion, and gifts the ability to spend the afternoon touring nearby wineries. I particularly enjoyed Stilmiatou, a family-run organic winery that grows only Cretan varietals. Such a surprise retreat, and Thera is fabulous. Would stay again!

  • Thera's home, in the beautiful wine country hills above Heraklion, was a great place to relax after a day of sightseeing in the area. The bedroom and bathroom spaces are very private, clean, and comfortable. Thera was welcoming and helpful, providing directions from our last stop before we checked in and suggesting restaurants to try for dinner. She shared a glass of wine with us in the evening and made us a delicious breakfast the next morning even though we had to get on the road quite early. We will definitely be back if we ever get the chance!

    Emma2015-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thera is the most wonderful hostess we had in our Cretan trip! She really cares for your comfort and is very helpful if you need any tips. The house is even more beautiful in real than in the pictures. Special mention for the delicioux breakfast!

    Lucie2014-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Théra a été très accueillante malgré notre arrivée tardive. Tout était super, nous avons eu une petite partie privative de la maison avec un petit extérieur. Le petit déjeuner était parfait, au bord de la piscine sous un soleil radieux ! Cet premier matinée de vacances fut parfaite !

    Juliette2016-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Thera est très accueillante et très sympathique! Sa maison est un havre de paix! C'est un endroit idéal pour se reposer! Nous avons passe un formidable séjour !

    Our old stone house with its lush, tranquil garden, is situated in the village of Myrtia, in the heart of the breathtaking wine country, 20 minutes south of Heraklion. The house is renovated with love and care - its soul intact and with all modern comforts. Myrtia is an ideal all year destination, surrounded by olive groves, beautiful gorges perfect for walks and some of the best wineries in Greece. An authentic village experience well off the beaten track, yet easily accessible. Welcome!
    An old stone house refurbished in 2012, where Scandinavian Design meets traditional Cretan. Oiled wooden floors and thick stone walls. A cast iron wood stove for magic autumn and winter nights. The beautiful lush garden is ideal for afternoon siestas and barbecues at night. The bedrooms in the ground floor keeps naturally cool even during summer. The bathroom is small but modern and super functional and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need to enjoy cooking. There is even a truffle slicer, should you need it!
    Authentic Cretan village, in the middle of the wine and olive country, and still only 20 minutes from the centre of Heraklion and the Airport and 15 minutes to Knossos. The village has 2 mini markets, 2 butcher shops, a pharmacy, a bakery and a wide variety of cafes and tavernas, and is also boasting the museum of the writer who wrote Zorba the Greek - Nikos Kazantzakis. The museum arranges an annual summer art festival in July involving the entire village. There are also great walks in the gorges surrounding the village. The valleys around Myrtia are also ideal for running. The nearest beaches on the north coast are only 30 minutes drive from Myrtia and just an hours drive you reach the vast beaches of the unexploited south. The nights in Myrtia are cool even during the heat of summer - a real treat after a day on the beach. The region is one of the oldest wine region on the planet, and its natural beauty compares well to that of Piedmont or Tuscany.
  • We as a young couple enjoyed the friendly neighbourhood. The people were extremely friendly and helpful. It was nice and quiet. Even though it was far from heraklion there was still good things to do like wine tasting. The was great better than we expected

  • Unsere Reise nach Kreta im Mai. Wir ( 2 Erwachsene und zwei Kinder im Alter von 5 Jahren und 6 Monaten) hatten uns nach vielen Angeboten, für das Haus von Martin in Myrtia entschieden - die Fotos vom Haus und der Umgebung sahen toll aus und wir wollten gerne in einem authentischen griechischen Dorf eine entspannte Elternzeit genießen, umgeben von schöner Natur. Und was sollen wir sagen, es war großartig! Unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen und wir liebten das Haus und die Umgebung vom ersten Tage an - herrlich! Nun aber der Reihe nach: Der Kontakt zum Vermieter: Martin war jeder Zeit schnell und per Telefon oder Nachricht unkompliziert zu erreich, er gab uns viele gute Tipps und war um unser Wohl sehr bemüht, einfach top! Fünf Sterne! Danke Martin! Das Haus: Ein wunderschönes Haus mit vier Zimmern, voll ausgestatteter Küche und Bad entsprach unseren Wünschen und wir haben es sofort geliebt! Die Schlafräume für Erwachsene und Kinder sind im unteren Teil, dadurch ist es schön kühl dort. Man hat direkten Gartenzugang. Ein doppel Bett (ca. 160x200) in dem einem Raum für Erwachsene und im anderen, der durch einen Vorhang getrennt ist, war ein schönes Holz-Etagenbett für die Kinder. Sehr viel Spielzeug war dort, so das es ideal für unsere Tochter (5 Jahre) war. Aber auch Erwachsene die nicht zu groß sind können in dem Etagenbett schlafen, kein Problem für mich (1,72 groß). Dazu ist ein Babybett zum Aufklappen auch zur Verfügung Vom Kinderzimmer führt eine Treppe nach oben, dort ist ein schön eingerichtetes Durchgangszimmer mit Kaminofen, Schreibtisch und Sofa. Dahinter folgt das schöne Wohnzimmer mit Esstisch und einfachem Sofa, welches ausgezogen werden kann. Von dort folgt die Küche, die alles hat was man braucht um zu Kochen, inkl. Nespressomaschine ;-) von der Küche ab folgt das kleine Bad mit Dusche. Es ist klein, aber völlig ausreichend. Der Garten ist wunderschöne und lädt zum entspannen und Essen ein. Der Ausblick vom Balkon im oberen Teil ist großartig und traumhaft. Das Dorf Myrtia: Es leben ca. 900 Menschen dort, es ist sehr authentisch und die Menschen (viele ältere) sind sehr freundlich, insbesondere zu Kindern, kein vergleich zu Deutschland. Unsere Kinder bekamen oft ein Eis geschenkt oder andere Leckereien. Es gibt zwei Minimärkte, eine Apotheke, zwei Fleischer, Cafes, Bäcker und Tavernen. Die Taverne mit dem Grill vor der Tür gegenüber vom Bäcker ist sehr zu empfehlen, besonders das Lamm :-) sie bringen das Esse auch nach hause und es ist sehr gut und günstig. Mit englisch haben es die Menschen nicht ganz so sehr, sprechen meisten aber ein paar Brocken, es funktioniert alles, kein Problem. Die Bäckerin spricht sogar gutes Deutsch. Die Umgebung: Auf der spitze zwischen zwei Tälern liegt Myrtia etwa 20 Km von Heraklion entfernt. Die Gegend ist grade im Mai traumhaft und lädt zum spazieren gehen und Wandern ein. Aber auch das Dorf selber, haben wir ein paar mal durchquert, weil es so schön ist. Man braucht aber unbedingt ein Mietauto um sich weiter weg bewegen zu können. Wir haben...

  • This was our first trip to Greece and we were looking for a charming, calm and authentic place to stay. Martin's house in Myrtis is really offering this! You can see an feel that the house has been renovated with love and care mixed with a good taste for design. So the first moment we arrived we felt like being home. You have all the comforts you need as dishwasher, washing machine , wifi and the big garden! We were lucky to pick some tasty tomatoes. Myrtia itself is just lovely. Take a stroll through the small streets , this is really worth it. Not to mention the beautiful landscape! And all the village people, they are so friendly! And they really love kids!!! Martin, we did not meet you in person, but the communication was great! Thanks!

    Quynh2017-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • We really had an amazing stay at Martin's house. The house is bright, spacious, clean and with beautiful decoration. The atmosphere of the house and everything inside makes you feel at home. The kitchen if fully equiped, very convenient and the washing machine fully functional. The garden is magnificient and it is so nice to eat outside under the trees. Martin also gave us very good recommendations for place to eat. The village is very peaceful and the area is just wonderful. The countryside is just calling for long walks. Matrin was very welcoming and make everything possible for us to have a great stay. He even took care of us from Athen when there was a water cut in the vilage. Thanks to him our stay was unbelievable. In short, I totally recommend this place, and will come back anytime I can.

    Aline2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great little town in the countryside and the place had a nice view. The walks had even better picturesque views of the olive trees and vineyards. Martin was very available for questions, and we felt right at home. There was even a bottle of wine from a local winery awaiting us when we arrived! There are several wineries nearby, it is only 20 minutes to the city, and the walks are great. The place felt lived-in--- it would have been easy to stay for weeks and be able to cook meals just like at home, not like in many bnbs 'with kitchens.' There were bunks plus a pack n play, so a good option for kids too. Listen to Martin's advice about using GPS to get from town to town. We ended up on many of the old roads- some were just fine and others maybe a bit much for our small rental car. To get there we used GPS and mapped the museum and that worked well. We definitely got lost other times to and from but always found the way eventually. Better to start exploring in daylight. By day 3 we were aquatinted and comfortable finding places. There was a basket of maps at the house that made it easier as well. If you want a quiet escape near good walks and wineries, this is your place!

  • es war ein wunderbarer aufenthalt . eine oase der ruhe in dem kleinen ort myrtia . das haus war hervorragend ausgestattet und liebvoll + gekonnt mit traditionellen elementen und aktuellen , skandinavischen produkten kombiniert . die küche - endlich eine küche zum kochen . zum wohlfühlen . alles war schlüssig , überzeugend und von anspruch geprägt . in myrtia selbst gibt es alles für den täglichen und unmittelbaren bedarf . eine von weinbergen , olivenhainen und kleinen dörfern geprägte bergige umgebung lädt zum mountainbiken für nahezu jeden geschmack ein . der strand im knapp 20km entfernten kokkini chani mit einem feinen sandstrand und türkisblauen wasser war häufig beinahe menschenleer . leider haben wir martin nicht persönlich kennen gelernt . aber seine betreuung und kommunikation bei fragen und empfehlungen war umfassend und schnell . wir vermissten nichts . die vorgeschlagenen restaurants entsprachen oder übertrafen unsere erwartungen . besonders die taverne in stamnoi hatte es uns angetan . check-in und check-out liefen über eleni in einem nahezu permanent geöffneten supermarkt . das ganze von einer großen leichtigkeit und entgegenkommen .

  • We had a great stay with our 2 kids (9 months and 4 years). The house is tiny but absolutely charming, great decoration, great garden, and we found all we needed. The village was amazing, just the right mix of quiet and close to Heraklion, we felt very much at home. Thank you Martin for sharing all thus in such an open and uncomplicated way! We'd definitely be happy to come again. Annick, Stéphane, Élie ans Nina

    Annick2017-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Martin's house is similar to the announcement, very lovely ! The neighborhood in Myrtia is really friendly and welcoming and in the Crete in general. Martin is very fast to answer to messages, his advice is precious. We really recommend this house ! Thanks for everything !

    Situato in una splendida tenuta con villa pool.The privata offre spazi completamente arredati e attrezzati per rilassarsi e godere il vostro soggiorno.
    La villa dispone di 3 camere ben arredate e un piccolo soppalco che possono ospitare 8 persone. Culla è fornito su richiesta. ulteriori persone possono essere ospitate nel salotto (la villa dispone di 3 divani). C'è un bagno padronale e gli altri due (il terzo è al di fuori della casa). Il wifi gratuito e parcheggio privato sono a disposizione.
  • This villa is paradise! We stayed there for a family reunion, with people traveling in from 3 continents, and everyone absolutely loved it. It's so comfortable, stylish and cozy that we didn't want to leave. And when we stepped outdoors, the impression only grew stronger. The pool is so big and beautiful, with many deck chairs, a hammock, tables and sitting areas. Adjacent to it is a beautifully landscaped garden with ample shade and more sitting areas. At the back of the villa is a small basketball court(!) and another beautifully landscaped barbecue area with a gorgeous gazebo which we used for our family meals. The entire front deck is one huge balcony with tables and chairs, to sit there and watch the magnificent Crete sunset over a chilled glass of wine, or enjoy a shaded breakfast and look at the olive groves nearby. The icing on the cake was Alexandros who was a MAGNIFICENT host! He was so attentive, kind and courteous, texting us almost daily to see if we needed anything (cleaning services, lines, towels, etc), and he gave us great tips for wonderful tavernas in the village. My entire family was so impressed and grateful for his incredible hospitality. If it was possible to give this property and host 10 stars - we would.

  • Absolutely amazing holiday. The villa was even lovelier than expected, very clean and well equipped with a great size pool and wonderful garden space both front and back of the property - the outside space is particularly pretty at night when all lit up. All facilities were exactly as described and even nicer than the photographs showed. We rented a car during our stay and found the location worked really well for us - it felt slightly off the beaten track so was lovely and quiet, but was very convenient for Heraklion and the national road so getting around was easy. There is a mini market and pharmacy right beside the villa which is very convenient, and a couple of tavernas within walking distance. The nearby village of Archanes is very pretty and we had a delicious dinner in the ambience of the town square one evening. Alexandros was incredibly helpful during our stay and answered any queries we had very quickly - a great host. Overall we had a fabulous holiday and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa.

  • We stayed at the house for 12 days. We had a great time. The first thing to say is that the pool is fantastic, and the kids absolutely loved it! The house itself is quite clean, and well equipped. As we wanted to visit, we rented a car to travel around - and i would say that this is a must for anyone wanted to visit Crete. The village of Archanos is quite nice (supermarkets, restaurants, ATM, pharmacy...). To sum it up, the house is a great base for anyone who wants to discover Crete & enjoy some R&R as well. Just be aware that a trip by car to the western part of the island can take up to two hours due to the limited roads.

  • We were at Alexandros’s place for about 4 days. We are a family of 5 with young children. From the moment we arrived, we were so pleased with our choice. The Villa has a lot more to offer than seen in the pictures. First of all, it is designed beautifully with an antique style along with much attention to details and first line modern electric appliances including kitchen appliances, laundry machine. Everything is clean and well organized. Lots of linens, towels, blankets. Secondly, the pool is beautiful, clean, lovely lights and seating area. Could be coolish weather for swimming some times even in august. Archanes is a relatively small village, but with all the necessities. At least 2 large supermarkets, several mini markets, pharmacies, few taverns and restaurants, gas station. Beautiful area is the square, which has different shops, restaurant, and bakeries. Absolutely no need to leave the village for services other than touring Greece. We didn't meet Alexandros in person but it was as if we did, he was very responsive, always attentive and helpful, answering immediately to any request or question. This villa is definitely a great choice for a vacation, wonderful location, service and accommodations, we feel very lucky to have found it, wouldn't hesitate to return.

    Yossi2017-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Villa is absolutely amazing. Spacey, clean apartment, great frontyard with a nice pool area and an even greater backyard with a BBQ and chill area. They even have a basketball hoop :). Situated in a non touristy region in a small hillside village it's the perfect place to get away. But still there is an awesome taverna and a mini market in walking distance. Last but not least Alexandros was a fantastic host. Takes great care of his guests and the place likewise. Would definately recommend it 100%!

    Susanne2017-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We booked Alexandros villa because we wanted some quiet days in a stand-alone place with enough room for everybody, a pool to chill at and not many people interfering. It turns out that the pictures cannot express the size of this estate. On our arrival, we were overwhelmed by the place. The property is about 10m-15m wide but about 200m (or more?) long. It is completely surrounded with a high fence covered with plants so you never feel watched. In the front, beside the entrance gate, is a lawn on which one could easily play soccer with kids. Next to it is the big pool with an area for deck-chairs and a garden-shower. At the end of the long yard is a place to park a car and the house with about any equipment one could think of. Behind the house is a basketball-field or stone-yard where you could also park one or more other cars. Behind that yard is another area with a masonry pizza-oven and a wooden pavilion besides it where one can sit and have breakfast, because the sun comes up behind the house. Everywhere from the front to the back are plants and trees and though the property is so huge it always feels comfortable because it is so long but not so wide. On our arrival Alexandros had some Raki prepared for us and his employees were waiting in a very good mood to show us around the house. Besides the Raki there were not many supplies, some sugar, instant coffee and tomatoes, which was ok, because we did not expect anything and brought our own things to cook. However, if you arrive late and come directly from the airport you should think of preparing something for dinner in advance. As mentioned earlier the house is very well equipped. The kitchen has a ceramic glass cooktop, an oven, a small dishwasher, fridge with freezer, sandwich maker, electric juice squeezer to squeeze oranges or lemons, a microwave and more than enough pans and pots to cook in. Also other gadgets such as can openers were at hand when we needed them. Besides the living room also two other rooms are equipped with TVs. There is at least one mirror in every room and everybody got three towels (2 big and one small). During our stay Alexandros contacted me via text message and asked if everything was ok and if we needed anything. We felt really at home. Unfortunately the property behind the villa seems to be having events with music and speeches on the evenings regularly. Maybe it’s the theme park. When we arrived there was loud music and on some other evenings too. But we did not bother too much because everything else was perfect and we had our own music, too. We stayed with 4 people but the property is easily big enough for 8 people or maybe more (there are 8 sun-decks and 8 beds but you could also sleep on the sofas)....

    Marco2017-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • The villa is beautiful and exactly as described in the photos. Everything is well maintained and there's plenty of space inside and outside. We were five adults and three kids. We also enjoyed the swimming pool very much and the garden and playing basketball at the back. Highly recommended for families with children

    Situato ai piedi del monte Youchtas, nel pittoresco villaggio di Archanes, la nostra villa in pietra si trova in una delle strade più centrali della zona. Costruito in pietra e altri materiali ecologici, unisce vecchi mobili antichi con servizi moderni.
    Situato ai piedi del monte Giouchtas, nel pittoresco villaggio di Archanes, il nostro casale in pietra si trova in una delle zone più centrali e belle della zona. Archanes sono 20 minuti di distanza dal centro di Heraklion (15 km), a 15 minuti dall'aeroporto internazionale di Heraklion, a 15 minuti di distanza dal famoso palazzo minoico di Cnosso, nonché a 20 minuti da numerose spiagge bellissime. Situato nel centro della più importante regione vinicola di Creta, ha un 5000 anni di storia, mentre gli scavi condotti negli ultimi 50 anni hanno portato alla luce un sacco di siti risalenti al periodo minoico. Il villaggio è anche molto famosa per la sua architettura tipica di Creta. La maggior parte delle case sono state restaurate di recente e Archanes ha vinto il secondo premio come "il paese meglio restaurato in Europa".
  • My partner and I travelled over Greece for the first time during July-August 2017. For a change from the touristy things we decided to stay in Archanes for 3 days. We are so glad we made that decision. The house is beautiful (architect designed) spacious, clean and spotless and exceeded the expectations we had gained from the pictures & the description. It is walking distance from resteraunts and everything we needed. We found Greek people to be generous but those in Archanes and, particularly Thomais, to be the most. She is the perfect host going out of her way to ensure our stay was more than we hoped... From helping us when we got lost to providing us food and wine when we arrived late. If you are staying in Archanes you should definitely stay here.

  • Thomais was wonderful. She met us at the house and was so warm and welcoming. She gave us a tour of duty he home which was even more beautiful than the pictures led us to believe. She made us dinner and homemade jam. She contacted us often to ensure we were okay, sent us recommendations and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable in her home. Would absolutely recommend any property by Thomais!!

    Jack2016-07-22T00:00:00Z

    "FILOXENIA"(LOVE FOR GUESTS30 SQM), IS PART OF THE ROMANTIC MINOAN VILLA, A HISTORICAL STONE-MADE WINERY-STUNNING PROPERTY, LOCATED IN THE VERY HEART OF ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLAGES OF EUROPE, ARCHANES,15 MINUTES AWAY FROM THE MINOAN PALACE OF KNOSSOS. THE POSITIVE ENERGY AND THE MAGNIFICENT AESTHETICS, EMBRACED BY A PEACEFUL, COLOURFUL, AROMATIC GARDEN ADJACENT TO THE OWNER'S RESIDENCE, NEAR TO A HOLLY MOUNTAIN, PROMISE AN AUTHENTIC CULTURAL EXPERIENCE FULL OF UNIQUE FLAVOURS AND TASTES.
    Il Romantic minoica Villa "Filoxenia" (l'amore per gli ospiti), è un 150 anni (appox. 30sq.meters) in pietra villa, situata nel cuore di uno spettacolare giardino, traboccante di frutta di stagione aromatiche e fiori, adiacente alla residenza del proprietario. La proprietà espansiva della romantica minoica Villa, che era una vecchia tradizione Archanesian Cantina Villa si trova nel cuore del villaggio Archanes, a pochi passi dal Palazzo d'Estate del re Minosse, ea breve distanza a Cnosso, Palazzo d'Inverno del re Minosse. L'antico borgo di Archanes si trova in una vallata ricca di ulivi e vigneti ed è venuto a rango tra i più importante archeologica situata della Grecia, attraversando come fa tutte le fasi della preistorica civiltà minoica, così come quelli dei tempi storici. Mentre nascosto in una strada senza uscita, la villa si trova a soli 3-5 minuti a piedi dal centro del paese, dove la città si anima con ristoranti, tutti i tipi di negozi, panetterie, bar e mercati. La lunghezza d soggiorno del sito, sia come insediamento e come sede di culto, rende Archanes un'unità integrata in cui tutte le forme e le attività di una delle più importanti straordinari Communities- sia al centro e l'entroterra-sono rappresentati di Creta. Al Archanes, le prime tracce di attività umana si è verificato alla fine del Neolitico tardo e attraverso tempi Sub-Neolitico. Architettura e una serie di vari vestigia di culto ci dice che Archanes sono state abitate ininterrottamente da allora, alcune di queste vestigia di abitazione trovati sotto sotto edifici del periodo neopalaziale, ha rivelato meravigliosi esemplari di Medio ceramica minoica nel Tourkoyeitonia, il serbatoio, il Teatro zona, il Vorna ei siti agorà. Al giorno d'oggi i visitatori possono ancora vedere i resti di edifici robusti costruiti con pietre e mattoni di fango e manufatti di ceramica. Il cimitero di Phourni, fornisce la prova importante per la ricchezza degli abitanti e per acme culturali, dove si trova l'importante Tholos Tomba B e il labirintico MM funeraria costruzione 18, dove sono state trovate sepolture ricche di pithoi e sarcofagi. D'altra parte, più significativo e per molti motivi unici, struttura religiosa a partire dalla fine di questo periodo è il santuario isolato di Anemospilia, del versante nord della montagna minoica Giouhtas, dove sono state trovate tracce di sacrifici umani. Secondo l'antico mito urbano, Zeus, quando la gente smesso di credere nei dodici dei dell'Olimpo, è venuto e riposato qui per sempre! Così, quando la montagna è visto dal lato occidentale, ha la forma di una testa barbuta di un uomo addormentato. Giouhtas ospita una colonia di avvoltoi e costituisce come area protetta per la fauna selvatica e le piante e le erbe uniche, grazie al suo ecosistema.
    Il quartiere è l'epitome della vita del villaggio tradizionale, con strade di ciottoli e fiori profumati e alberi, con le chiese apparentemente ovunque. Nelle vicinanze, il visitatore può vedere le chiese "Panagia", "Agia Paraskevi", "Agia Triada", con le loro incredibili affreschi bizantini, così come il residuo di un palazzo minoico che risale al 1900 aC, sono solo alcuni dei luoghi che vale la pena visitare. Fate una passeggiata nei vicoli stretti lastricate con gli edifici neoclassici restaurati, scoprire le caffetterie e taverne tradizionali e degustare i famosi vini locali. Inoltre, all'interno di un breve distanza da Archanes, in Vathypetro si può visitare la più antica e la cantina del mondo! Un cimitero preistorico, che era stato utilizzato per più di 1000 anni, è stato scoperto a nord-ovest di Archanes, sulla collina di Fourni. Il suo uso prolungato permette il riconoscimento di molti tipi di tombe. A Psyli Korfi, la parte superiore del burrone che separa collina Fourni dal Monte Giouhtas, si trova uno dei santuari più importanti di Creta, che è stato utilizzato per un lungo periodo di tempo come un luogo di culto. Sul lato sud-ovest del Monte visitatori Giouhtas troveranno altri due luoghi noti come "HOSTO Nero" e "Spilios tou Stravomyti". Sul lato nord della montagna, nel punto chiamato "Anemospilia", sono stati scoperti i resti di un tempio minoico, unico per la varietà e la ricchezza dei suoi risultati. In Youchtas montagna ci sono 360 specie di flora (soprattutto durante la primavera cretesi orchidea spiccano) e 40 specie di uccelli, molti dei quali sono rare o minacciate, con avvoltoio come il più importante. zona Yiouchtas è inclusa nella rete europea Natura 2000 ed è considerato come un Bird Area Importante (IBA). Yiouchtas è protetto come un "Archeologica" e "Paesaggio di straordinaria bellezza naturale". La partecipazione alle attività agricole: Agricoltura, apicoltura, ceramiche, Wine & Raki making, e la crescita degli olivi, viti, ortaggi, erbe aromatiche sono le principali occupazioni degli abitanti del villaggio dove i visitatori possono assistere e partecipare. In Archanes e villaggi vicini ci sono attività musicali, spettacoli e altre attività culturali, durante tutto l'anno, organizzato da musicisti locali e stranieri. Sempre chiedere per ulteriori informazioni ...
  • La casa di Maria è molto carina e ben organizzata nella gestione degli spazi. È tutto fatto con molto gusto. Il giardino con il melograno, il limone ed alcuni ortaggi lo rendono un posto adatto a passare qualche ora a riposare senza pensare a nulla. La notte è tranquillissima, silenziosa e piena di stelle. Il palazzo di Cnosso è a 10 min d'auto e Iraklion a circa 20 min. Maria è un host eccezionale, sempre disponibile ed una ragazza solare. Assolutamente consiglio a pieni voti questo posto.

  • The moment we walked through the wooden doors into Maria's garden, we knew we were somewhere uniquely special. The beautiful setting, the artistic flair and authenticity of our accommodation, together with the warmth and Cretan hospitality shown to us by Maria, was second to none. The opportunity to experience Archanes, the chance to share in Maria's company and engage in meaningful conversation was an experience we wont forget. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you .

    Vicki2017-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • We received a wonderful welcome from Maria and her friends when we first arrived, and their hospitality continued for our entire stay. The stone villa is very unique, cleverly designed and authentically decorated with Maria's personal touches. The villa is located in a very intimate and quiet enclosed courtyard, next to Maria's home. There are various places to sit in the beautiful, well-tended garden. Maria is obviously very proud of her Cretan roots, and enjoys sharing her love of locally grown products with her guests. She is also very interested in learning about the culture of her guests, and we felt like old friends immediately. Maria is a fantastic and very personable host, we would recommend her place without hesitation. What a unique and pleasant experience!

    Natalie2016-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • Maria and her home are amazing. Archanes is a wonderful, special place, and Maria's home exudes warmth and comfort. She has considered the guest's every need, and has created a space full of both history and love. When Maria opened the gates to let us in to Filoxenia, we felt as though we had been let in on one of Greece's most magical secrets. We hope to return very soon.

    Rebecca2017-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Marion is a very welcoming host. Our ferry was super late and she waited up to greet us. She left us with grapes from her family's farm and fresh water. She even helped my husband get his car out when he got it stuck in the alley!! The apartment is very nice and the gardens are lovely. It feels like a home away from home. We rented a car and had easy access to Palace of Knossos and downtown Heraklion. The village where the house is also has nice restaurants and is close to vineyards. We had a lovely stay.

    Alexandra2017-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Filoxenia is a real gem! Nestled in a beautiful garden in the heart of an ancient village, the apartment is within walking distance of great restaurants, shops and nightlife. Archanes is centrally located for excursions to museums, archeological sites, outdoor adventures, beaches and musical venues. Marion is the perfect host, graciously accommodating in every way and her charming little apartment is everything she describes it to be. But beware, her expertly tended gardens are so enchanting you may not want to leave the premises ....but you must as there is so much to see and do! I highly recommend this rental.

    Mary2016-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • What a magical holiday! This was by far our best experience using airbnb and this was made possible because Maria and close friend Aleco were fabulous hosts. Maria went out of her way to please us and make us feel at home. We felt instantly that her beautiful home was also our home. Maria was kind, friendly, generous and a ray of sunshine. The apartment itself was lovely and had everything you could ask for. It was decorated with a personal touch. The bed was comfy and it stayed cool during the day and the night because of the stone walls. We cooked breakfast every morning and sometimes made a greek salad with the wonderful local Cretan ingredients for lunch. We actually spent most of our time in the magical garden. We picked lemons every day from the lemon tree and made lemon cake and drank plenty of lemon tea. There are various places to sit and enjoy the different views in the garden and we sure did that. It really makes this place and you can put your feet up, sit back and feed off the energy. We cooked local lamb in the wood fired oven and grilled local caught fish and vegetables on the grill. The local produce is probably the best i have tried in Europe! Archanes is a wonderful traditional Cretan town and the villa is located just a short walk from the centre where there are restaurants and grocery stores, bakeries, a cheese deli and an ice cream parlour. The local bus takes you into Heraklion once per hour and is always on time and only costs €2. The town was very quiet when we visited in april and we hardly saw a tourist! If you want the full Cretan experience appreciating the culture, food and history then this is the place for you. Thank you Maria and Aleco for making our stay so wonderful. I have a feeling we will be seeing you again soon...

  • Parfaitement accueillis chez Marion. Elle a organisé le voyage en taxi depuis l'aéroport d'Héraklion. Le lieu est tout à fait conforme aux photos et à la description, petite maison très design dans le calme d'un jardin clos très arboré. Une belle rencontre et un excellent préambule au voyage sur l'île.

    "La Piccola casa in Katalagari" composta da 3 piani 25 mq. Metri ciascuna, può ospitare fino a 6 persone, ed è situato nel centro del villaggio di Katalagari. Esso contiene 2 camere da letto con letto matrimoniale ciascuna, 1 cucina completa e 1 cucina, 2 bagni con doccia, lavatrice, un camino e una piccola veranda al secondo piano, offrendo una splendida vista sulla valle Peza. villaggio Katalagari è uno dei villaggi più pittoreschi di Creta e si trova a 17 km da Heraklion.
    "La piccola casa in Katalagari" è stato ri-costruito 10 anni fa con un obiettivo speciale in mente; la terra e il primo piano dovrebbe essere il più "compatta" possibile, fornendo tutti gli elementi necessari che permetteranno ogni piano di essere autosufficienti, con la propria cucina, bagno completo con doccia e un divano che dormirà due. Eccezione è al 3 ° piano dove sono le attuali 2 camere da letto ognuna con un letto matrimoniale e una porta per la privacy. Il risultato finale è: dorme 8 adulti, ma è un po 'affollata, ma 6 adulti sono più che bene. Abbiamo testato la casa con 2 coppie e un padre con un totale di 7 persone 2 bambini 'e siamo stati bene. Un altro dettaglio che non dovrebbe andare inosservato, abbiamo usato le grandi finestre per godere la luce del sole luminoso di Creta, in particolare il sorgere del sole sopra le montagne di Lassithi in tutta l'orizzonte, e la splendida vista sulla valle sottostante. La ragione della casa set-up è ovvio; abbiamo voluto utilizzare la casa come base per esplorare con i nostri figli ei nostri amici, la splendida isola di Creta. L'obiettivo è stato raggiunto. Ora vorremmo offrire casa a chiunque come vorrebbe fare lo stesso; per esplorare e godere di Creta e Cretesi, i discendenti del popolo minoico. Ma soprattutto per scoprire l'incondizionato ospitalità cretese erano ogni straniero è considerare di essere un dio inviato persona, per gustare il cugino di Creta fine e scoprire la prova effettiva di pomodoro, e tutte le verdure che hanno reso l'insalata greca famosa.
    Vorremmo che gli ospiti houce di rispettare le persone del quartiere, così come le frazioni del paese. Pleace mantenere tutte le aree pulite ecc La gente di Katalagari vi accoglieranno con gioia e vi mostreranno la tradizionale ospitalità che li caratterizza.
  • The peace and serenity were just what we were looking for and the view is spectacular. The house is very comfortable and had everything we could need and the surrounding area is charming. We​ had a wonderful stay.

    Veronica2017-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was my 3rd stay in Katalagari. As always, the house was comfortable, clean and entirely enjoyable! The uniqueness of village life cannot be overstated and is a vital part of experiencing Cretan life. It's location is very convenient to explore the villages of Archanes and the musical culture of Xoudetsi and Anogia! Thank you once again!

  • This was my second time staying at Antonio's charming house, this time for 10 days. I'll be back in June or July for more adventure fresh food and Raki. I have found a bond with the citizens of Katalagari that is family. I miss everyone already. Thanks Antonio for making this possible

  • A very nice place in a beutifull vilage. Great hospitality of the neigubers who invited us to eat with them and spent time together. Great view

    Guy2017-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • My 3 day stay in Katalagari was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Of course, the house was perfect and in many ways offered more than was advertised. The gift of Raki was a pleasant surprise. Thank you! The people of Katalagari were amazingly friendly and open. They were genuinely curious about who I was and what I was up to. Be warned that there is a small band of older men that hang out at the cafe across from the house that will lure you into their group by offering you fresh tomato and cucumber salad, Raki and clever conversation. On one occasion, one of the men showed up in his pickup truck and said, "Ela! get in!" Next thing you know I was at a large outdoor garden with a very large table being fed MORE fresh local food with Raki. The next day I joined the mob in the grape fields to pick grapes. We had a nice coffee break with cheese, bread, coffee, water and a little local wine. No Raki, though, as the men said that was for later. Before we delivered the grapes to be crushed, we stopped of for a lunch of souvlaki with lemon, bread and more wine at a local road side taverna. Amazing! When you book here, play say hello to, Minas, Marcos, Costas, Young Giorgos and to Yiannis, the gang boss! I have been invited back in December to help with the Olive harvest! 10 out of 5 stars David, Canada

  • Antonios was a superb host. He made sure that we were well informed about the area that we were staying in and was in contact with us throughout our stay in case we required anything. The house provided us with everything that we required and on arrival Antonios kindly welcomed us with local Tsipouro, bread and cheese, which did just the trick after a long journey. The house itself is located in a charming village and the neighbours are incredibly friendly and helpful. There is an excellent restaurant at the top of the road from the house and they serve fresh and seasonal home made cretan food-I highly the dolmades. We really enjoyed our stay in Crete and were overwhelmed by the kindness of the our neighbours in Katalagari. I hope that we will return next year.

    Logari è una casa colonica situata in Katalagari, un piccolo villaggio costruire su le scogliere lato est della collina a Creta centrale con favolosa vista una valle piena di vigneti e ulivi. Rovine, chiese, castelli, torchi in pietra mostrano che l'area è stata abitata fin periodo bizantino. L'agriturismo è un luogo polifunzionale con diversi tipi di attività quali: casa distilleria, scuola di cucina, Nano e infeltrimento creazioni mosaico, ecc La casa distilleria è stato utilizzato in passato per la produzione di "Raki", la bevanda tradizionale di Creta alcol. Gli ospiti della casa sono ospitati nella casa fatta di distilleria materiali naturali come la pietra, rame, ferro e legno. La zona ha stato trasformato in una guest house caldo senza perdere la sua tradizionale Caratteristiche. Il serbatoio per esempio è stato convertito in un doppio comodo letto.

    hospitallity, buone taverne.
  • Casa particolare: vecchia distilleria piena di oggetti caratteristici. La nostra bimba si è divertita ad arrampicarsi sul letto costruito sopra la vecchia cisterna dell'acqua della distilleria. Molti gatti simpatici che gironzolano attorno. A pochi metri c'è una taverna che consiglio. La proprietaria abita sopra quindi sempre disponibile per eventuali problemi.

    Silvia2017-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • La casa è piena di fascino, non usuale e rispecchia in pieno le aspettative. Katerina e' stata squisita e ci ha aiutato a rendere il nostro soggiorno (una sol notte, purtroppo) molto gradevole.

    Giovanni2016-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Arrivare a Creta e pernottare da Katerina è stato un tuffo immediato nell'autenticità del posto! La disponibilità e l'accoglienza era calorosa e nel paesino si trova una piccola locanda altrettanto piacevole. Grazie mille Katerina.

    Sandra2016-06-20T00:00:00Z
  • Casa immersa nella natura, molto caratteristica perchè si può ammirare il paesaggio tipico Greco.Consigliata a tutte quelle persone che vogliono una vacanza tranquilla dalle zone del centro città.

  • Katerina gives you a warm welcome, complete with raki and mezes. The apartment is in a great location, just between Peza and Arhanes. You can enjoy the landscape, the wines and the history. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and uniquely decorated. Katerina even gave us a nice present when we left. Would certainly come again !

    Το σπίτι μας είναι ένα παραδοσιακό πέτρινο σπίτι που βρίσκεται στην καρδιά των Αρχάνων. Το σπίτι χωρίζεται σε δύο επίπεδα. Στο πρώτο επίπεδο είναι το μπάνιο, η κουζίνα και το σαλόνι ενώ το δεύτερο επίπεδο που αποτελείται από ξύλινο πάτωμα, περιλαμβάνει το χώρο εργασίας, το μπαλκόνι και το (URL HIDDEN) σπίτι διαθέτει επίσης ένα κιόσκι με ένα μεγάλο τραπέζι για 8 άτομα, μπάρμπεκιου και (URL HIDDEN) σπίτι έχει θέα στο όρος Γιούχτας και βρίσκεται σε κοντινή απόσταση από μίνι μάρκετ, ταβέρνες και άλλα καταστήματα στην πλατεία του χωριού. Επίσεις θα ήθελα να σας επισημάνω οτι το τζάκι λόγω αστοχίας στην κατασκευή του όταν ανάβει εισέρχετε λίγος καπνός στο δωμάτιο στον επάνω όροφο.Αν αποφασίσετε να το ανάψετε παρακαλώ αφήστε ανοικτά την εξώπορτα του δωματίου. Our traditional stone-built house is located in the center of a village called ARCHANES consists of two levels: in the first level there are the bathroom, the kitchen and the livingroom second level has got wooden floor and there you can find a working area, a bed and a balcony. Furthermore, the house has got a roofed garden with a large table for 8 people, barbecue and a traditional wood-fired oven.An amazing view of the mountain is visible from the house. You can walk the distance between the mountain to the top of the village through taverns and little shops with traditional products and more. Many of them are around the square of the village. I would like to point out that due to a construction issue, the fireplace, when it lights up, it generates some smoke. This not a problem though. If you decide to light it up, just make sure that you open the room door upstairs so that the smoke is directed outside the house.
    Οι Αρχάνες έχουν κερδίσει βραβεία - το 2 ο καλύτερα αναπαλαιωμένο χωριό στην Ευρώπη και το 1ο σε μακροπρόθεσμες προοπτικές ανάπτυξης. Οι δρόμοι είναι πλακόστρωτοι, υπάρχουν παντού ανθισμένα λουλούδια, οπωροφόρα δένδρα και φυτά στις αυλές, τις βεράντες και τα μπαλκόνια των σπιτιών - μια βόλτα γύρω από τους πίσω δρόμους είναι μια απόλαυση. Τέλος, η Κνωσός, ο περίφημος Αρχαιολογικός χώρος της Κρήτης είναι περίπου 12 λεπτά με το αυτοκίνητο από τις Αρχάνες (9χλμ.) και το κέντρο του Ηρακλείου είναι περίπου 20 λεπτά με το αυτοκίνητο (15χλμ.). Archanes has won many awards, among them are those of the 2nd best restored village in Europe and the 1st in long term development prospects. Streets have been newly stone-paved with splendid displays of blooming flowers. Fruit trees and plants embellish the yards, terraces and balconies of the houses in the village. As a result, a walk around the narrow streets is a delight.Finally, Knossos, the famous Minoan palace of Crete is about 12 minutes drive(9km) from Archanes and he center of Heraklion-the capital city of Crete- is about 20 minutes drive(15km).
  • George is a really friendly and helpful host ! His house is beautiful with everything you need to have a great stay. I recommend him!

    Aude2017-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious and beautiful house with plenty of character. Located only three minutes walk from the centre of Archanes, very handy to enjoy the village but also have all amenities near by. George always kind, replying instantly our texts. We had a great stay overall, apart from the fact that I had recently injured my knee and struggled a little with the steep stairs (to the bedroom).

    Miltos2017-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at George's house in Archanes was the best we could have ever expected. The house is spacious, beautiful and authentic, the location is just great - it is really easy to get to Archanes from Heraklion airport and inside the town it's right in the centre. I strongly suggest to book with George in Archanes instead of looking for something similar in Heraklion. You will get to hang out with the locals in beautiful tavernas of this amazing little jewel of Crete instead of rubbing shoulders with all the tourists in Heraklion. Also, George and his girlfriend are super friendly and kind, it was so nice meeting them, it gave a special vibe to our trip around Crete. Our stay here was flawless, thank you!

    Danguole2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • We visited George's beautiful house for a weekend at Archanes village and we had a wonderful time. The house was fully equipped and we there was nothing else we could have needed. Nice welcome pack also waited for us in the fridge. Communication with the owner was excellent and whenever we had questions about the house or the beautiful village of Archanes he was kind and responsive. We will definitely visit again.

    Thibaut2017-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely, cozy, romantic stone house was just as described. We can wholeheartedly endorse all other reviews for this place. The stonework walls, floors, firelace and bathroom are magical. We made a fire both nights (easy to buy small amount of wood from wood sellers at both ends of town.) There is a large walled patio with a stone barbeque and separate wood oven, along with a long table that seats at least eight. The house is two stories with bedroom and spacious office/seating upstairs along with a little patio off the bedroom. The stairs to the bedroom are steep, almost ladder-like, so maybe not suitable for the very young or the very old depending on balance of both. We had to carry our little dog up and down, no big deal. The Wi-Fi is strong, reliable and fast to load. Water is nice and hot (turn it on about 15 minutes before using) and there is a luxuriously deep bathtub. The kitchen has lots of basics, including full stove with oven, full size refrigerator, and is generously stocked with water, breakfast/ rolls, coffee, sugar and other staples. There is also a washing machine, so appreciated by long term travelers! Archanes is a beautiful little mountain town with a quaint Venetian feel and narrow- very- streets. Listen to George and the other visitors and do not try to get here on your own!!! Even the best GPS becomes psychotic here -We ended up having to back down two blocks on a tiny street after being directed into a dead end. Fortunately cats, dogs, chickens and children are still alive. Perfect location for seeing Knossos and exploring the wine country. George is a wonderful host answering messages within minutes and meeting you anywhere to guide you to the place, schlepping half your stuff down the street as well. He speaks and writes very good English. His father did the remodeling of this old original house. He is also incredibly generous. I'm the one responsible for burning the stove cover, which you will notice, and he refused our offer to pay for it. Just so sorry we could only spend three nights here.

  • These are outstanding accommodations- gorgeous! Great location with all amenities easily accessible- in fact bakery right next door for your breakfast needs! The village of Archanes is a short drive from Heraklion and quick to get to but we were happy to have a car to drive around and see the local sites. You will not regret a stay here!

  • This place is stunning. Great location, great restaurants away from the usual tourists. The only thing that could improve this place is for the pool have a bit of heating. It is very cold. Our children couldn't be in the pool for more than ten minutes at a time which was a shame. If they heat the pool just a bit this place would be perfect!

    Archanes, Creta, Grecia

    A 100 anni vecchia casa tradizionale con un bellissimo giardino pieno di erbe cretesi e una fantastica vista ai Jouchtas montagna sacra nel bellissimo villaggio di Pano Archanes. Vicino alla casa si trova cafè locale denominato Ploumi con musica greca dal vivo ogni Domenica. Bus a Heraklion ogni ora. Grande passeggiate nella natura.
    Archanes è uno dei più bei villaggi di Creta! Ha piccole strade tradizionali (fatte da roccia) e negozi e piccoli alimentari e bei ristoranti come se il tempo si fosse fermato qui! Il mare più vicino e la città di Heraklion si trovano a soli 20 minuti. Abbiamo le Jouchtas montagna (si può andare verso l'alto in solo 1 ora da trekking) e un bosco a soli 20 minuti a piedi dove è possibile trovare un antico semetary della civiltà minoica! L'antico palazzo di Cnosso, dove la civiltà minoica ha vissuto lì 3.500 anni fa, è a soli 10 minuti di auto!
    Il mio quartiere si trova all'interno del cuore del villaggio in una piccola strada. In 2 minuti a piedi sarete in alcune davvero belle ristoranti e piccoli alimentari cretesi e caffè tradizionale (cafeneion)! Se si prende la strada fino allora si sarà '' perduta '' in alcune davvero belle parti del paese!
  • Konstantinos is a charming and affable host. His rustic accommodation suits those who want to experience a real traditional Greek house in a lovely large village, rather than those expecting all mod cons

  • The house is situated in a beautiful village about 35mins bus ride away from Heraklion. Transport was only €2! Konstantinos met us at the bus stop and we had a lovely little walk through the square where there are many lovely restaurants to the house. For an authentic Greek experience,this is the perfect place for you. I only spent two days which was definitely not enough to properly enjoy what this little village has to offer and what the entire Island has to offer. The village locals are all so very friendly and helpful! Konstantinos was an amazing host! He took us to Lentas, a lovely beach near South Heraklion, where we had a massive meal which came up to very little per person. Archanes is the ideal place to go if you are on a tight budget. Travel is cheap, food is cheap and you get an authentic experience out of it. It is not a place to party. It is a place to relax, and enjoy what the islands and the locals have in store for you.

    Catherine2016-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • La petite maison de Konstantinos offre un cadre agréable pour se reposer. La petite ville d'Archanes n'est pas loin d'Héraklion et de Knossos. Il y a des petits commerces proposant des bons produits ainsi que de nombreux restaurants. C'est un endroit idéal pour découvrir la Crète.

  • Maison traditionnelle typique très agréable et propre. Konstantinos est très arrangeant sur les horaires et la maison est située dans le Coeur du village de Archanes qui est très sympathique et proche d'Heraklion et de Knossos. Salle de bains et toilettes en extérieur. Pas du tout dérangeant pour nous, mais bon à savoir.

    Aurélie2016-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Kostantinos was really nice, he helped us with our late arrival, delivering the keys for us to his sister. The house is great: big, clean and really peculiar. We had the opportunity to meet Kostantinos in the night, he explained us a lot of interesting things about the house and Archanes, which is a small gem of Crete. Thank you. Suggested!

    Valentina2016-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • petite maison très agréable à 2min à pied du centre d'Archanes ou il y a de nombreux restaurants et bar. la rando du mont Gouhtas est très belle et la vue est splendide par contre c'est à peu près la seule chose à faire autour d'Archanès (bien 3h et bon dénivelé, les grecs on l'air d'être des bon marcheurs car les timings de rando sont très juste contrairement à la France). il faut aller à archanès surtout pour la bonne bouffe et la musique le dimanche. le vin crétois du bakaliko est exquis!! pas eu trop la possibilité de faire connaissance avec notre hôte konstantinos qui a l'air très sympathique et connu au village.

    Paul2016-07-26T00:00:00Z

    Molto vicino dalla nostra proprietà c'è anche il sito archeologico di un antico insediamento minoico. La scoperta di antiche strade che portano da Archanes a Juktas, Anemospilia, Xeri Kara, e Vathypetro indicano che il villaggio era un importante centro nella regione durante minoica. Quelle evidenze indicano che gli antichi Archanes sparsi sulla stessa area come la città moderna così com'è oggi.

    La casa si trova tra vigneti uno alberi laterali e ulivi nell'altra. Ha due appartamenti, ciascuno con ingresso indipendente. Io sono di affittare l'appartamento al piano terra, che è anche la più grande. Io vivo in l'altro durante l'inverno e solo occasionalmente in estate. Quattro persone possono dormire in appartamento, due nella propria stanza e due sul divano letto nel soggiorno. Si può godere la migliore vista del villaggio, le montagne di Lassithi e l'alba magica.
    Mi piacerebbe darvi il benvenuto al mio piccolo paradiso segreto nel pittoresco villaggio cretese di Katalagari. Situato nel cuore della regione conosciuta come “Strade del Vino di Heraklion”. Ci sono una magnifica vista l'alba sulle montagne Lassithi dal cortile 20m2. Accanto si trova la taverna tradizionale di Chrysanthi e Kostas. Sono miei amici, i prezzi sono ottimi al l'accoglienza indimenticabile. Vedere il loro ristorante "Yotam Ottolengui visita Creta" di minuto 24 a 29. Ci si sarà in grado di godere della stessa vista della casa! È possibile utilizzare la connessione Wi-Fi in casa e al ristorante. Free pick up dall'aeroporto! : La governante, un mio amico, vi verrà incontro in aeroporto e viaggio di ritorno con voi per la casa (ognuno con la propria auto) e una volta lì, lui vi aiuterà a risolvere in e farà in modo che il vostro soggiorno sia il più confortevole possibile, fornendo con ogni e tutte le informazioni necessarie circa la casa o l'isola. Katalagari è 17 km dall'aeroporto e alla stessa distanza alla capitale Heraklion, raggiungibile in 15 minuti in auto grazie ad una strada di nuova costruzione. Ci sono diversi percorsi per i vigneti e gli ulivi con fantastica vista mare e montagna. Passeggiando, si può vedere il gipeto in via di estinzione tra molti altri uccelli. La città Katalagari ha tutto per assicurarvi un'esperienza tradizionale di Creta: una tipica caffetteria greca di fronte alla piazza della chiesa, l'accogliente taverna della porta accanto, negozio di alimentari e una gente amichevole. 20 a 30 minuti da Katalagari, veniamo alle lunghe spiagge sabbiose della parte settentrionale dell'isola, tra cui Karteros, Vatheianos Kampos e Kokkini Hani. le spiagge più selvagge devono essere fondati nel sud, come Dyskos, Agios Pavlos e Ligres (ciascuna di queste spiagge ha una parte nudista), anche se ci sono anche spiagge perfette per le famiglie, come ad esempio Tsoutsouras. Queste spiagge del sud sono quelli che mi piacciono di più, in particolare quelli che sono accessibili solo tramite strade sterrate o con escursioni a piedi lungo canyon. Questo è dove si trovano spiagge di ghiaia, profondo mare e acque calme e cristalline. La maggior parte di queste spiagge meridionali più deserte non offrono strutture organizzate per i turisti, anche se alcuni di quelli che sono più vicini alla città o altri punti di interesse fanno. Tornando verso Katalagari, a soli tre chilometri dalla città troviamo il più antico villaggio di Creta, Archanes (che, molto appropriatamente, significa “antico”). Archanes è una città, villaggio secondo migliore restaurato pluripremiato in Europa e il numero uno in termini di prospettive di sviluppo a lungo termine. Le strade sono state ripavimentate con ciottoli e cortili del villaggio, terrazze e balconi traboccano di piante, fiori che sbocciano e alberi da frutto. E 'il luogo ideale per passeggiare in tranquillità strade. Archanes fu un importante centro regionale in epoca minoica, come prova dalle antiche strade scoperti lì che conducono al santuario minoico di Monte Jouchtas ea Vathipetro, contenente alcuni dei più antichi torchi in tutto il mondo. Vedere anche: il percorso escursionistico E4 (passa attraverso Archanes). Le famose rovine di Knossos si trovano nelle vicinanze.
    Katalagari è una piccola città tradizionale cretese, a soli due km dal villaggio di Archanes dove si può trovare tutto quello che serve: negozi, supermercati, ristoranti e vita culturale. In Katalagari c'è un piccolo mercato appena a pochi passi dall'appartamento e la taverna amichevole di Chrysanthi, della porta accanto.
  • ottima accoglienza da Montserrat e dal suo amico Giorgo, persone amabili e con molto entusiasmo vitale. L'appartamento è comodo, nuovo e con tutti i servizi necessari. Accanto c'è un'ottima taverna di cucina tipica, a gestione familiare e con prezzi giusti. Katalagari è un piccolo paese tranquillo a pochi minuti da Archanes, cittadina storica interessante con molte offerte culturali. A 15 minuti di distanza si raggiungono le spiagge del nord di Creta. Con 30-40 minuti si arriva alle spiagge del sud molto selvagge e poco frequentate. Un soggiorno caldamente consigliato.

  • Our experience with Montserrat and her lovely home in Katalagari was superb. We were met as arranged with someone to let us in and the apartment exceeded our hopes. It was very beautiful with magnificent views and the wonderful Taverna Chrysanthi next door was fantastic

    IAN2014-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • My mother, daughter and I had a lovely time staying at Katalagari. Giorgos gave us a warm welcome and showed us around Archanes. We enjoyed walks in the immediate area through shaded olive groves and up the hillside, covered in spring wild flowers and wild herbs to see the ancient Minoan wine press. The village made an excellent springboard for day trips to the south side of the island and Knossos by car. We really appreciated the lovely local produce sold in the village shop next door and the excellent home cooking provided by the kind lady running the taverna right next to ours!

  • We choose this wonderfull place in Katalagari to explore Crete with our own car, it's the perfect "basecamp" to visit a lot of interesting places in the area. Also the beaches are close but if you want to stay in Montserrat's beautifull house you DO need a car ;-) We had a very warm welcome from Giorgios, a very good friend of Montserrat, who showed us the house and gave a lot of tips for excursions. This guy is really amazing and fantastic!!! We also met Montserrat who is a very warm, kind and nice lady. She also gave us a very warm welcome and lots of tips. You can ask her anything... We also spend a wonderfull evening with Montserrat and a friend in the tavern next door were you can eat delicious home cooked traditional meals and the owners are amazing! The house is very clean and everything you need for a perfect holiday is there. The view in the mountains was stunning. We also slept like babies :-) It was very important for us to go back to the essence and in this village we found it. The contact with the real Greek people was fantastic, we had very nice conversations and we will return to Montserrat's place for sure!!! Also the village Archanes, that is 2km further than Katalagari, is a very nice village to visit. Montserrat, thank you for letting us stay in you're house and for being the perfect and most wonderfull host xxx Lots of hugs and kisses from Simon and Jenny

    jenny2016-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • As advised Giorgos met us at the airport and seen us through car hire etc, thank you. The apartment was great with lovely views and a large terrace/balcony to enjoy them from also very well equipped. We had a very relaxing holiday And would recommend it as the village is only 15 minutes from Heraklion. The taverna next door (5 steps from the apartment) was wonderful Chrisanthus cooked traditional Cretan meals with the average price for 2people with wine roughly 25 euros. Costas her partner was delightful and very helpful. Thank you to everyone Montserrat.

    christiane2015-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The place was incredible, with a beautiful view on the mountains, fast wifi connection and the village Katalagari is the real Greece! Montserrats friend, Giorgos picked up U.S. At the airport and helped us find a car Nd lead us to the apartment. He showed us everything and was really kind. I wish more people came to Montserrats place to experience something different than just a regular hotel. It's just a minute from beautiful ancient village of Archanes and 6 km from the palace of Knossos. Why would anyone choose a different place than this to stay in Heraklion region? :)) thanks a lot Montserrat!

    Farm House is (167 sq.m) is perfect for couples, families with kids and for nature lovers! It is a two-storey house. It is located in Kato Archanes and has an amazing view to the Cretan Sea and Gretan Mountains. Farm House is 14.8 km away from Heraklion City, 7.4 km from Knossos Palace, and 13.9 km from the airport. November -The season of fresh walnuts!
    WHY STAYING HERE? We offer a 167m2 sunny family home, in 6.000 m2 of land. Our house run entirely on solar energy, with lots of olive trees, fruit and vegetable gardens, chickens, geese and goats providing eggs and fresh milk that we happily share with guests. The house has 3 bedrooms, which sleep 4 – 6 people, a large living room, 3 bathrooms, and provides generous living space, both inside and out. Our location on top of the foothills of the Juchtas mountain means that you have fantastic views across two major mountain ranges, with sunset and sunrise to savour daily, as well as the whole bay of Heraklion. We are near a nature reserve, with plenty of stunning walks to be had straight from the house, and lots of wild birds, hares and the occasional Cretan hedgehog. The area is full of wild flowers, herbs and vegetables which change with the seasons. Those who love ancient history are a stone's throw away from the ancient Minoan cemetery of Fourni. And a 5 minute drive from the famous archaeological site of Knossos. And in about twenty minutes you can reach the beach near Heraklion, or the stunning beaches on the south coast in just an hour.
    The cemetery of Fourni, provides important evidence for the wealth of the inhabitants and for cultural acme, where the important Tholos Tomb A and B is located and the labyrinthine MM Funerary Building 18, where rich burials in pithoi and sarcophagi were found. Anemospilia ,of the north slope of the Minoan mountain Giouhtas, where traces of human sacrifice were found. According to the ancient urban myth, Zeus, when people stopped believing in the twelve Olympian gods, came and rested here for good ! Thus when the mountain is seen from the western side, it has the form of a sleeping man's bearded head. Giouhtas hosts a colony of vultures and constitutes as protected area for wild life and unique plants and herbs, thanks to its ecosystem. Also, nearby on the way to the Epano Archanes, the visitor can see on the right side the natural turf in Kampos, training place and home to local sports club. Time for locally traditionally Raki!
  • Our stay at Fotini's house was amazing. Her warm and comfortable home was the perfect place to stay while exploring Heraklion. It was very close to the archeological site of Knossos which was excellent. It was also a short drive into the city of Heraklion. This was unique farm and home with a million dollar view of the mountains, the olive tree groves, Heraklion, and the coast. It was so lovely to meet the family and all the animals. We will definitely be back.

    Georgia2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a beautiful place, 20 minutes by car from the center of Heraklion, you can reach the house only by private car. The house is really clean, with three bathroom and three rooms. The garden is full of fruit trees and cats. All the members of Fotini's family are really nice and helpful and we organize with their help a wonderful dinner, cooking pizza together. It was a great pleasure to know Fotini 's family! I travel with my girlfriend, my son and a couple of friends with two children.

  • Fotini and Giorgos's house farm is amazing. It has a gorgeous view over Herakleion and the sea; it is spacious, very well decorated, super clean and equipped with everything you might need. The outside garden is marvellous, beautiful olive trees are surrounding the house. We had the chance to see the animals, try typical home made sweets and goats milk and our kids loved it! Our staying was great, we experienced what really means hospitality. Fotini and Giorgos made us feeling at home and they took really really very good care of us. We really recommend this lovely house...next time we will stay longer :-)

    Chiara&Michalis2017-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Fotini's house and family are really nice. The house, even though it's hard to reach, has a breathtaking view over the land around. The house it's also really close to Archanes which is a really nice village that has great tavernas and cool places to have a beer and some raki. The house is clean and tidy but could be improved on the kitchen and the various bathrooms. Expect to share the kitchen floor with Fotini's family.

    Matteo2017-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We highly recommend (& envy;) your stay st this unique farmhouse with generous Fotini and George. From lip smacking Greek food ( even when we arrived late and our kids were starving!)to the stunning views and seeing the eco friendly practices we enjoyed every minute of our stay and wish we had more. Please go - you will not regret this special experience that makes Greece feel like home.

    Meera2017-08-09T00:00:00Z

    Κώστας2017-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • I booked Archanes Farmhouse, because we had previously only stayed in Heraklion for one night, but wanted to get a better idea of what the surrounding area was like and to check out a some of the great archaeological sites nearby. The house was a perfect setting for this, the views are amazing and the family are great hosts. We got lots of good advice and some lovely local produce while we were there. The accommodation is very spacious, very nicely furnished, with three different terraces to choose from, all with stunning views of mountains, the sea and the city in the distance. The kitchen is very well equipped, there is Wi-fi and even a piano if you have any talent. I quite enjoyed meeting the animals, - the goats are quite funny and the cats very shy but lovely. Although it was just the two of us staying this time, I could imagine coming back for longer with my nieces and nephews as I think they would have a great time. Thanks very much to Fotini for some great Cretan hospitality.

    Katy2017-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed staying at Fotinis house. It was spacious for our family of six. Our children could play outside with the numerous cats. They fed the goats, saw chickens and geese. Fotini was a great host, great communication and always with suggestions about what to do in the area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved the home cooked meal she had ready for us when we arrived. Thanks Fotini!

    Welcome to our beautiful Villas Prinos, Kedros, Sfendamos: 3 luxury villas for 5 persons.
    Welcome to Manili villas! Our villas are located in the traditional village Archanes, 14 km. outside Heraklion, in the neighborhood "Manili" hence their name. Blending perfectly the traditional habits with the amenities of a contemporary life, we have created this space to target a pleasant and comfortable stay. The names of the three Manili villas (Prinos – Kedros – Sfendamos) are inspired by the rich flora of Crete. Uniqueness, beauty and abundance are inextricably connected with the Cretan land and at the same time they are the values of Manili villas. Our goal is to offer you a comfortable and pleasant stay, in a traditional, natural landscape. Stroll through the traditional cobbled streets of the neighborhood and the village and enjoy the scents of jasmine from the courtyards of old houses. Enjoy your coffee in cafes and traditional Cretan cuisine in the picturesque taverns. Enjoy your stay! Heraklion International Airport is located 12 km from the property. Free private, on-site parking is possible.
    Archanes, A Unique life crossroad! Located at the proud land of Crete, holding a rich historical and cultural journey of 5000 years, Archanes village is a timeless value. The space and time acquire a special significance here. It is just 10 km from Knossos and 15 km from Heraklion. The origin of Archanes name (Arch, ah) has been connected from the Minoan period with the water, which was abundant in the area and then transported to Knossos Palaces for water supply. The village consists of small beautiful neighborhoods, such as Troullos, Tourkogeitonia, Tzami, Konaki, Acropolis, which are places full of colors and energy, spread in the uniquely beautiful Cretan landscape with the lush gorges, gentle hills and fruitful plains.
  • Our experience at Manili Villas is indescribable. The villa we rented (Prinos) was absolutely beautiful and clean with all new amenities. We had plenty of food and drinks available in the home and we were served breakfast every morning at the outside courtyard. But most remarkable was the hospitality of Petros and his parents. Petros came to get us at the town square and directed us to the villa. He called many times during our stay to make sure all of our needs were met. We met his parents on our last night, when they delivered us a parting gift. They essentially went out of their way to make us feel at home and comfortable. We highly recommend the villa for any traveler.

  • Vanggelis ist ein sehr gastfreundschaftlicher Vermieter. Wir trafen uns mit ihm, wie vereinbart in einer Taverne am Ortseingang. Von dort führte er uns zu seiner Unterkunft und begrüßte uns sehr herzlich mit einem leckeren Rotwein aus eigenem Anbau. Es hat uns in der Unterkunft an nichts gefehlt. Wir durften sogar auf Grundnahrungsmittel wie Kaffee, Butter, Eier, Käse und Gewürze zurückgreifen. Das 100 jährige Haus (renoviert) entspricht voll und ganz der Beschreibung im Inserat. Die Wohnung ist sehr geräumig und liebevoll eingerichtet. Im Garten/Schuppen leben 5 Katzen die wir allmorgendlich fütterten. Die Raubtierfütterung war immer sehr amüsant. Zum Dank beobachteten uns die Katzen dann durchs Fenster beim Geschirrspülen und sorgten für Ablenkung bei der Hausarbeit. Der Garten/Innenhof ist hübsch und etwas verwildert angelegt. Ein idealer Rückzugsort, den wir leider auf Grund des Zeitmangels nicht ausgiebig nutzen konnten. Alles im Allen eine tolle Unterkunft wo wir gerne noch ein paar Tage länger verbracht hätten.

  • Vangelis was one of the best hosts (maybe the best!) we ever had! We had an amazing time at his place and hope to come back soon. We really appreciated his hospitality giving us so many good recommendations and tips (not just for beaches but also for the food!), the wine and cheese he shared with us and his great company. We highly recommend his place in Archanes. If you are looking for a beautiful and peaceful place to feel home, you have to visit him.

  • Strongly recommended! It is a wonderful traditional house with a precious old wooden floor, full of books, beautifully decorated, plus a lovely small garden. It is located in the heart of Archanes, perfect to relax in the village or to explore the region. The host is an amazing person.

  • Vaggelis was a perfect host and his home is as beautiful as depicted in the listing. The location, the cleanliness, decor, architecture, attention to details and extreme Cretan hospitality are all worthy of mention. I highly recommend Vaggeli's home!

  • Die Unterkunft von Vangelis im Dorf Archanes ist eine sehr liebevoll gestaltete Wohnung mit einem Schlafzimmer (französisches Doppelbett), einem sehr großen Wohnbereich mit Sitzecke, Schreibtisch und Bibliothek, Küche mit großem Kamin, Essecke, Kühlschrank, Ofen/Herd und Naturstein-Spülbecken. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet mit allem, was man braucht. Das Badezimmer bietet eine große Dusche und eine Waschmaschine. Fön und Bügeleisen wurde uns bei Bedarf angeboten. Alle Räume sind sehr liebevoll dekoriert mit Kunsthandwerk, kleinen Kunstwerken, Bildern etc. und mit antiken Möbeln eingerichtet. Auf Wunsch wurde uns ein drittes Bett im Wohnraum eingerichtet. Der Vermieter ist sehr gastfreundlich, hilfsbereit und herzlich! Wer hier wohnt , sollte Katzen mögen, denn sie wohnen im Außenbereich. Der Innenhof ist ein schattiger Rückzugsort, wo man zum Beispiel auch schön frühstücken kann. Schönen Aufenthalt! Vangelis accommodation in Archanes is a very lovingly furnished appartement and decorated with little art-objects, books and paintings. Beside a bedroom for two there is an very big livingroom/library, a kitchen (well equipped) and bathroom. We were given a third bed in a corner of the flat. If you stay there you should like cats - because they are linving there to. The heart of the acomodation is the shady little Patio where you can have your breakfast, read ,...etc.

    Il mio posto è vicino all'entrata di Archanes. Le ragioni che la mia camera vorrebbe: un letto comodo, leggero, ambiente confortevole e una cucina. Il mio spazio è adatto per coppie, attività per un individuo, viaggiatori d'affari, famiglie (con bambini) e animali domestici.
  • premetto che per vari motivi non ho soggiornato nell'appartamento di questa recensione ma in uno sottostante un po più piccolo. siamo stati benissimo. appartamento comodo spazioso luminoso e silenzioso con tutti i comfort. posizione strategica in un paesino molto bello. ritorneremo sicuramente. grazie ancora per l'ospitalità!

  • My best AirBnB experience so far! Grigoris is a very nice guy, and he is very alert to anyone coming around his beatiful home, so any time you will arrive he will come right out to greet you. Grigoris greeted us with a very warm welcome, after offering us fresh fruit and cheese, we opened a bottle of Ouzo and we drank and laughed all evening. Later, you can go and visit him at his local bar. Regarding the apartment - they are big, clean and feel like home. Regarding the location - Archanes is a very small town and everything is close by. Thank you Grigoris and see you again next year :)

  • Malgré un accueil agréable, des lieux spacieux, des fruits, laitages et boissons d'accueil dans le frigo, nous avons été très déçus par ce lieu. Pas d'eau dans la piscine, semblait n'avoir pas fonctionné depuis longtemps. Les lieux semblaient comme l'abandon : électricité en mauvais état, robinetterie défectueuse. Poussière partout, Moisissure autour de la baignoire, tartre...frigo, plaque, vaisselle sale et ébréchée. Impossibilité de se faire chauffer de l'eau pour le petit déjeuner, juste un faitout inutilisable. Parties communes pas entretenues, comme abandonnées. Impression que le logement n'a pas été utilisé depuis des mois. Au lieu de rester 3 nuits, sommes partis dès le lendemain en ayant mal dormi à cause des bruits extérieurs : animaux (chiens, coqs) et chaleur car les chambres ne sont pas climatisées.

    The Logari house is a traditional stone building house on the 2nd floor of Logari which has a fantastic view to the oliveyeards of the area and all the decoration is by hand work of me.
    The Logari house is a traditional house built in 2000, among olive trees and vineyards on the east side of a cliff where Katalagari village is located. The main purpose of the house was the promotion of Cretan -Mediterranean diet. Katerina , who is the owner of the house is a very active and creative person. Her personal knowledge and experience together with her family’s culture and the customs and traditions of the wider area of Katalagari village have contributed to the exploration of Logari to a multifaceted cultural cottage industry house. People of any age, from all over the world have had the opportunity to take part in activities such as: cooking classes , nuno felting creations, linen recycling, mosaic designing, manufacturing of cosmetics with olive oil etc. Furthermore they can have different activities in the countryside. They can take a walk in the olive groves and vineyards , visit the Byzantine wine presses and chapels of the area.
  • Katerina's Activity House is a gem within the equally picturesque village of Katalagari with its stone houses and narrow winding mountain alleys. The room is very large with a generous kitchen area where just about any meal could be prepared, as well as a lovely four post bed and living room area. Along the walls are crafts and paintings from her family and herself, and everywhere you can find little bottles of old raki (the house being a remodeled raki distillery once run by her father) and herbs and flowers. It's a stone built room, but not once did I feel a sense of coldness or bareness. Instead the entire atmosphere is one of rustic and lived in homeliness, and with the fireplace it could become quite cozy. There is a spacious second story veranda that overlooks the village as the steep mountainside drops off down into a valley full of olive terraces and vineyards. Katerina herself is a wonderful, strong, and artistic woman who prides herself on the traditions of her family and culture, and has spent much of her life stirring up renewed interest in traditional Cretan cuisine, the proper ingredients, ways of cooking, manners of eating, and has a broad, inclusive outlook on her culture that she is more than happy to share with you. She was very hospitable, and at the time I was able to have several fantastic meals prepared by her. I highly recommend this memorable place. Some of my fondest memories of Crete were created here. All the best Katerina! I hope I will return someday and again share raki and food and stories with you!

    Ethan2016-05-06T00:00:00Z
  • Katerina is so creative and friendly, the house is very special, with an atmosphere of old Cretan houses and full of her crafts. The view from the house is beautiful. Wonderful walks around the olive groves and nature.

  • Für uns war es der perfekte Start für unsere Kreta Rundreise . Eine sehr liebevoll , künstlerisch gestaltete Unterkunft !Man landet in einem sehr authentischen Griechenland . Katarina ist eine ausgesprochen sympathische, engagierte Frau. Sie war auch sehr flexibel mit unerer Anreisezeit (später Abend) . Wenn möglich, werden wir versuchen unsere Rundreise hier auch wieder zu beenden. Die Nähe zum Flughafen (15km) ist für uns auch ein großer Vorteil.

    "DEMOSOPHIA" (LOVE FOR PEOPLE'S WISDOΜ), IS PART OF THE ROMANTIC MINOAN VILLA, A HISTORICAL STONE-MADE WINERY-STUNNING PROPERTY, LOCATED IN THE VERY HEART OF ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VILLAGES OF EUROPE, ARCHANES, 15 MINUTES AWAY FROM THE MINOAN PALACE OF KNOSSOS. THE POSITIVE ENERGY AND THE MAGNIFICENT AESTHETICS, EMBRACED BY A PEACEFUL, COLOURFUL, AROMATIC GARDEN ADJACENT TO THE OWNER'S RESIDENCE, CLOSE TO THE HOLLY MOUNTAIN OF JUPITER, PROMISE A UNIQUE & UNFORGETTABLE CULTURAL EXPERIENCE!
    The expansive property of the Romantic Minoan Villa, which was an old traditional Archanesian Winery Villa sits in the heart of the Archanes village, steps away from King Minos's Summer Palace, and a short drive to Knossos, King Minos's Winter Palace! The ancient village of Archanes lies in a valley filled with olive trees and vineyards and it has come to rank amongst the foremost archeological sited of Greece, traversing as it does all the stages of prehistoric Minoan civilisation, as well as those of historical times. While tucked away on a dead-end street, the villa is only a 3-5 min walk to the village center where the town comes to life with restaurants, all kind of shops, bakeries, bars and markets. The length of the site's inhabitation, both as settlement and as a venue for worship, renders Archanes an integrated unity wherein all the forms and activities of one of Crete's most important communities- both centre and hinterland-are represented overtime. At Archanes, the first traces of human activity occurred at the end of the Late Neolithic period and through Sub-Neolithic times. Architecture and a number of various cult vestiges tells us that Archanes have been inhabited non-stop since then, some of those inhabitation vestiges found under beneath buildings of the Neopalatial period, revealed wonderful specimens of Middle Minoan pottery in Tourkoyeitonia, the Reservoir, the Theatre area, the Vorna and the Agoras sites. Nowadays the visitors can still see the remainders of sturdy buildings constructed with stones and mud bricks and pottery artifacts. The cemetery of Phourni, provides important evidence for the wealth of the inhabitants and for cultural acme, where the important Tholos Tomb B is located and the labyrinthine MM Funerary Building 18, where rich burials in pithoi and sarcophagi were found. On the other hand, most significant and for many reasons unique, religious structure from the end of this period is the isolated shrine at Anemospilia ,of the north slope of the Minoan mountain Giouhtas, where traces of human sacrifice were found. According to the ancient urban myth, Zeus, when people stopped believing in the twelve Olympian gods, came and rested here for good ! Thus when the mountain is seen from the western side, it has the form of a sleeping man's bearded head. Giouhtas hosts a colony of vultures and constitutes as protected area for wild life and unique plants and herbs, thanks to its ecosystem.
    Il quartiere è l'epitome della vita del villaggio tradizionale, con strade di ciottoli e fiori profumati e alberi, con le chiese apparentemente ovunque. Nelle vicinanze, il visitatore può vedere le chiese "Panagia", "Agia Paraskevi", "Agia Triada", con i loro straordinari affreschi bizantini, così come il residuo di un palazzo minoico che risale al 1900 aC, sono solo alcuni dei luoghi che vale la pena visitare. Fate una passeggiata nei vicoli stretti asfaltate con gli edifici neoclassici restaurati, scoprire le caffetterie e taverne tradizionali e degustare i famosi vini locali. Inoltre, all'interno di una breve distanza da Archanes, in Vathypetro si può visitare la più antica e la cantina del mondo! Un cimitero preistorico, che era stata usata per più di 1000 anni, è stato scoperto a nord-ovest di Archanes, sulla collina di Fourni. La sua lunga utilizzo permette il riconoscimento di molti tipi di tombe. A Psyli Korfi, la parte superiore del burrone che separa collina Fourni dal Monte Giouhtas, si trova uno dei santuari più importanti di Creta, che è stato utilizzato per un lungo periodo di tempo come un luogo di culto. Sul lato sud-ovest del Monte visitatori Giouhtas troveranno altri due luoghi noti come "HOSTO nero" e "Spilios tou Stravomyti". Sul lato nord della montagna, nel punto chiamato "Anemospilia", sono stati scoperti i resti di un tempio minoico, unico per la varietà e la ricchezza dei suoi risultati. In Youchtas montagna ci sono 360 specie di flora (soprattutto durante la primavera cretesi orchidea spiccano) e 40 specie di uccelli, molti dei quali sono rare o minacciate, con avvoltoio come il più importante. zona Yiouchtas è inclusa nella rete europea Natura 2000 ed è considerato come uno spazio Important Bird (IBA). Yiouchtas è protetto come un "sito archeologico" e "Paesaggio di straordinaria bellezza naturale". La partecipazione alle attività agricole: Agricoltura, apicoltura, ceramiche, Wine & Raki making, e la crescita degli olivi, viti, ortaggi, erbe aromatiche sono le principali occupazioni degli abitanti del villaggio dove i visitatori possono assistere e partecipare. In Archanes e villaggi vicini ci sono attività musicali, spettacoli e altre attività culturali, durante tutto l'anno, organizzato da musicisti locali e stranieri. Sempre chiedere ulteriori informazioni ...
  • I may fail to describe everything I experienced at Maria's house but I know with certainty that her warmth, excellent service, friendliness, and the unbelievable energy of the place will stay with me until my last day on this earth. Maria is a gifted host who has created an amazing place for travelers coming to the historic and beautiful island of Crete. The home is built of stone, surrounded by a quite and beautiful garden. There are beautiful details on the ornamental doors, wooden ceilings and surprisingly state of the art bathroom and kitchen. The home has an A/C unit which I never had to use just because of how surprisingly cool gets at night. Maria was patient and charming. She gave me directions on how to get to the places I wanted and she also gave me valuable information about the beautiful village of Archanes and Giouhras, the holy mountain that towers above it. You will leave richer after staying here.

  • Une adresse merveilleuse avec un accueil des plus touchant!! Beaucoup de charme pour ce logement particulièrement bien situé. Le petit plus: Une sélection de musique où chacun trouvera son bonheur!

    claire2017-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Maria's place in Arhanes has been a high point of our trip! Large rooms around a secluded garden behind a centuries old wall, provided privacy and comfort on days we wanted to read and rest. The property has been lovingly restored with a wonderful artistic aesthetic, and attention to the past. The rooms are in walking distance to the town center full of wonderful restaurants and markets to purchase food and wine. Arhanes is also minutes away from Knossos, for an easy afternoon tour after the tour buses have left. Maria was very helpful with other suggestions for hikes or a swim in the area. The healing power of the home, rural community, and surrounding vineyards and olive orchards will draw us back for another visit. So happy we didn't stay only in large cities of Crete.

  • Erifili has created a beautiful artistic apartment with a blend of old and new. She was very willing to share her knowledge of customs and places to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this home. Archanes has much to offer.

    Cynthia2017-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, spacious studio right in the middle of Archanes, which is now one of our favorite places in Crete. Walking distance to everything the town has to offer, including amazing restaurants and bars that played traditional music outside nearly every night we were there!

    Melina2017-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wir hatten eine wunderschöne Zeit auf Kreta (ca. 5 Wochen) im Apartment von Erifili .Sie ist ein warmherziger Mensch, der dafür gesorgt hat, dass wir uns wohl fühlten. Sie hat uns freundlich empfangen, Ausflugstipps gegeben und war mit ihren sehr guten Deutschkenntnissen ein außergewöhnlich interessanter Gesprächspartner. Durch Ihre Schilderungen haben wir vieles über Land und Leute erfahren, auch wo man am besten kretische Life -Musik hören kann, einsame Buchten und andere schöne Ziele findet.Wir sind sicher, dass wir nächstes Jahr wieder nach Archanes fahren werden.Wir freuen uns schon darauf!

    Helga2016-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed for 4 nights in early October and this was the highlight of our two weeks in Crete. Erifili was a superb host and really went out of her way to look after us, and suggest things we would enjoy doing. The apartment is beautiful, and although there are excellent places to eat in Archanes, it was a pleasure to buy the delicious local produce and eat 'at home'. There is lot to see and do around Archanes, which is a lovely small old town not crowded out with tourists, so we hope to return soon.

    Andrea2015-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • I loved staying here so much, I was sad to leave, it felt like home. The room is so charming, the location is in the perfect area of Archanes, by Ploumi, the view from the window pairs well with your morning coffee, the bed is so comfortable, the shower is clean, the space is beautiful and bright, I was worried it would be loud because it's off of the main road, but it didn't bother me. Erifili is a wonderful host and made me feel so welcome. I look forward to coming back again.

    Chloé2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • The host canceled this reservation 53 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

    Katerina2016-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is perfect if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Heraklion and chill with some of the best food, wine and walking on the island. The kitchen is perfect for buying local produce and cooking it up yourself.
