Interaction with guests
We will respect your privacy during your stay but if you need help re ideas of where to go, there is literature in the apartment and my friends in the house above will help all they can. They are well aware of the intricacies of life in Greece and so you will only have to ask.

My partner and I stayed here in June and loved every minute. It's clean, bright and airy, with all the mod-cons you would want. It has a great shower, and a nice, cool bedroom. On the days that we weren't out sightseeing, we relaxed on...More

About the neighbourhood
Pyrgos is a small hamlet near to Sissi which is about 40km to the east of Heraklion and 24km to the west of Aghios Nickolaos on the northern coast of the island of Crete. In nearby Sissi or Malia, the shops and supermarkets provide for all requirements and the are also many tourist shops for your momentos to a sunny holiday. In the tavernas, food is mostly locally sourced and is traditionally tasty and well cooked. Prices are generally quite reasonable. The apartment is situated in olive groves and so a car is necessary for travel. Heraklion is the capital of Crete and is usually where your plane will land. There are stores there such as Zara and Marks and Spencers and a good market every day selling local produce such as herbs, olive oil.
Getting around
The island is the largest of the Greek islands and a car is necessary to travel far. Buses cover most villages but are scarce. Cities and towns are covered by regular services which are relatively cheap. The apartment is handily placed for travel as it is a 2 minute drive to the main E75 road which goes from one end of the island to the other. The standard of the major roads is reasonable and make travel east, west or south easy. The scenery is pretty and colourful, the mountains are majestic and the sea is clear blue. There are also many historical sites to see of which Cretans are justly proud and within half an hour you can be in the mountains with cooler air.
