We were looking for something different and this is on Crete's highest mountain... its almost at the top....and its an amazing and slightly challenging drive to get to it. The views are huge and stunning, The road to it is like something from a Bond movie... winding, climbing all the way, thru a little village... really a great experince getting there....The villas are all new and well appointed. The only sound you get are the mountain goats walking along the road. We didn't want to stay in Heraklion because we heard it was boring... and it is... this is about a 45 minute drive from the ferry terminal in Herklion and driving on Crete is a breeze. We were the only guests... and we were treated exceptionally well. The husband and wife team made us dinner and breakfast and served us like royalty in the dining room (which also has great views) The pool is beautiful, the grounds well maintained and rustic... a very charming place and a real secret... i would highly recommend this accomodation

Me and my family were looking for something different, so we decided to make a reservation at Aetovigla Guest Houses last month. It was our first time at these guesthouses and I have to say that we are looking forward to visit Aetovigla again. The owner and his family were realy hospitable and friendly. We tasted the traditional food of Crete and also we had the chance to join a traditional Cretan wedding party!

I am still dreaming of this wonderful panoramic view, that combined mountainous areas and the view of the sea with such a taste... and all these while swimming in the beautiful swimming pool located at the edge of Aetovigla's hillside! The apartments are very comfortable and clean; moreover, they mix the tradition of Crete with a modern Greek touch! Finally, Krousonas is close to Heraklion and the road was renovated this year, facilitating all the transportations! My friends and I had an amazing time and we hope we will be back soon!

For the last two weeks of October 2012 Aetovigla was our home base. Not far from the airport at Heraklion, beautifully situated in the mountains above a little village, Krousonas. Aetovigla means 'eagle's view' and there are some wonderful views of the countryside if you're sitting on your outdoor terrace enjoying a coffee or a glass of nice local wine. In the mornings and evenings small herds of sheep and goats, some with bells, roam the mountains: if you don't spot them at once, the tinkling noises tell you where to look. The houses of Aetovigla, six in all, are furnished with great care and taste and they are very comfortable. The owners of this lovely place, Helena and Babbis, are absolutely friendly and hospitable and also very helpful with directions. The swimming pool is perfect! If you want to eat out there is the taverna a little below, presided over by Helena and Babbis, and both the cooking and the view are marvellous. But if you want to go shopping for food there is Krosounas just a few miles below, with mini markets staffed with kind ladies in the central square (also look out for Helena's delicatessen!). So it's an perfect place if you want a home away from home and relax, but if you want to explore the beautiful archeological sites of Crete, you are also ideally placed. I'm telling my friends about this place and we are certainly going back!

If you want to stay somewhere with absolutely stunning views, GENUINE peace and quiet - and truly awesome home cooked rustic food, then this is your place. It’s an interesting yet painless drive up the mountain - but feels very far enough away from the touristic madness of the city.

This hidden away handful of studio villas is pretty much at the top of a mountain. It overlooks the vineyards and olive groves, the valleys and hills way above and around the surrounding area of Heraklion.

Owned by the absolutely lovely Eleni and her husband, this place is well worth a stay.

It’s self catering, but why would you bother when Eleni delivers traditional home-made mountain food right to your door with a big smile on her face and a welcoming “yassas!”?!

I’d write more, but we’re off on our travels to another hidden gem in Vamos...

Enjoy.

We stayed in one of the beautifully furnished, typically Greek houses. The accommodation itself is more the perfect for couples and families. There is a nice pool and the views from the private terras are stunning. The owners do their best in helping you enjoy your stay. You notice they put a lot of effort in the accommodations.

One small thing to consider is, that the location is remote. There is a small village krousonas nearby, but just for basic groceries. You will need a rental car. Roads towards the accommodation are hardened.

Up high with the eagles, amazing view all the way to the city. Fresh mountain water pool, wild mountain herbs and herds of goats passing by. The apartment has everything you need, the owners really care. With a car you can travel where you want to and coming ‘home’ is always a treat.

We only spent one night here but loved the setting and the ownership of this off the beaten place. We had dinner and breakfast and were served way more then we could eat of great food. The view is like being in an airplane. The nearby town has almost no tourism so it is hard to find places to eat there. It was windy when we were there, no fault of the ownership.

Beautiful little residence in the hills just beyond Heraklion. Each house stands alone so privacy is assured. Main road was also recently repaved making it very comfortable. Very quiet in the evening and the view is a spectacle, perfect for an evening drink or having morning coffee by the pool. Great to relax away from the usual turist paths. WiFi works very well and the owners aim to please to make you as comfortable as possible.
It is away from everything, so you need to drive everywhere you want to go. The town of Kroussonas does not offer much. No AC or even a fan in the rooms so it can get very hot during the days and even some nights. The bed was uncomfortable. Satellite TV but only a few channels available.
