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...
