Our place is build in the area of the Village Agios Mironas near iraklion (28km) in the Island of Creta. The village is a very nice place where you can find almost everything to shop, have a coffee place and relax in a traditional tavern. The level is 800m above the sea so the air is always fresh and clear !! There is many beutiful places you can visit around , take a walk or do mountain bike..
“No matter what all critics are saying.. trust me there is no critic that can describe how marvelous this place is. The house is isolated from the main village at the end of a hill. The view from the yard is breathtaking!! The only sounds you hear all day long is from crickets. We spent most of the day in the pool swimming and gazing the view. The house is fully equipped from fruits to basic commodities (like milk, oatmeal, rice, pasta etc) and if you need anything extra you will find it at a small market close to the village square 7min walk from the house. Yannis was a great host, always stand by for anything we needed. We were lucky enough during our stay to run into the annual village festival with traditional music, food and drinks. This place is fully recommended if you want to clean your mind and your soul.”
Stone-wood house of historical value (renovated in 2015) that stands from the Ottoman rule period. Unique mountain location with unlimited view, within Agios Miron. The stonehouse is located 20 min from the island's capital, Heraklion within the most renowned wine producing region of Crete. Its ideal location suits every traveller that wishes to explore both the north and the south part of the island. After all, PhiloXenia is the ancient Greek concept of hospitality, generosity & courtesy.
“Beautiful cottage in the hinterland of Heraklion about 20 minutes away by car. It is located in a nice village with grocery stores, an oven and a bar where you can find everything a step away from home without having to take the car. The house is perfectly restored and in my opinion it is perfect for two or three people in single beds. There is the possibility of using a queen-size bed in the separate room that can be reached via the external courtyard. But the small room is very small and there is no closet, so you have to somehow organize yourself with those who remain at home even for the bathroom. Furthermore, the small room does not have air conditioning and is an under-roof where it is very hot in summer. However the owner is very kind and allows you to arrange the beds in the house to your liking so in some way he organizes us (we stayed in 5). It was truly a beautiful experience. Super recommended.”
It is an independent 50 sqm house with a mezzanine in a 1 acre property, in the nature, just a little outside the village of Petrokefalo.
“The accommodation is clean, spacious, very well equipped and with a magnificent view! Moreover it is extremely well placed if you want to visit all the region of Heraklion. Ioanna welcomed us with open arms despite the late hour of our arrival. His advice throughout our stay proved to be excellent, whether for restaurants, beaches or activities to do in the area. In short, Ioanna is the ideal host and the accommodation she and her husband offers is just as much.”
