“Perfect place to get a real cultural experience of Crete”
Reviewed 9 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Located in the village of Myrtia, it is only 15 kms from Heraklion and 12 minutes from the famed Palace of Knossos.
The owners were present to greet us upon our arrival. They gave us a fabulous introduction to the residence, the village and the things to do, tailoring it to our interests. they are so friendly and helpful. It would have been good to have seen them more during our stay. We stayed 1 week,
The village is lovely to walk around, with friendly residents. There are a couple of good restaurants, a wonderful bakery, and a museum to the famous Greek author and philosopher Nikos Kazantzakis.
The village is also on the E4 European walking pathway. We did a short section of this. And there are some great drives within a relatively short distance.

“An unforgettable relaxing holiday in traditional Greek house”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in September 2014

We spent wonderfull two weeks in september 2014 in this unique traditional Greek house. The house is perfectly located in the lovely village Myrtia that is well known for Museum of Nikos Kazantzakis. It is very close to the Heraklion (15km) and from here you can visit different places and beaches every day. Neighbours are particulary friendly and welcoming. There is very good supermarket only 2 minutes from the house and we even got some fruits for free from the shop owner :-) Next to it there is traditional Greek caffe where you can have drink with the locals. We were lucky to catch a very interesting performance one evening at the village's central square next to the Nikos Kazantzakis Museum.
The house has very nice views and you can sit in the rustic garden with orange and lemon trees enjoying amazing sunset. It has all you need for perfect holiday, comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, nice big living room with beautifull fireplace. The owner was very friendly and helpful and gave us many useful information about the island and places to visit. He was available all the time for everything we needed.
This was an unforgettable holiday for us and we will definetly come back again.
We would recommend this place to the people who want to escape from the madness of the city life and who want to switch off for a while and have nothing to do with the outside world.
