A magnificent villa in the middle of the island of Crete. Close enough to the city in order to experience the vibes of Heraklion with your five senses and far enough so you are not annoyed by the hustle & bustle of the city. It comes with 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen and a beautiful garden with BBQ. Recharge your batteries in our villa and explore the island like a local!

The space

Our property is also located in an ideal location! Close enough to the city in order to feel the vibes of Heraklion with your five senses and far enough so you are not annoyed by the hustle & bustle of the city centre. We would recommend for your convenience that you rent a car in order to make it easier to explore the whole island! You can have a discount in your car rental if you say the name "Promachon Paspalakis Agricaltural Villa" in this site. However, if you would prefer not to rent a car we can arrange to pick you up from the airport or the port after we discuss the time of your arrival :) Our home is divided in three floors. On the ground floor you can find an open space that includes the living room (with a fireplace for cold winter nights), a fully equipped kitchen (where you will be able to try to cook local recipes), a dining room (where you will taste your tasty creations), a bedroom and a toilet. On the first floor you can find three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One with a double bed and 2 with semidouble beds. Finally, on the third floor there is the attic properly decorated to a cozy bedroom. Regarding the external part of the villa will have plenty of green space to relax and a spacious parking for your cars.

Interaction with guests

We welcome our guests with homemade local treats and most importantly with a smile. We always provide them with detailed directions for reaching the villa and suggestions for places worth seeing on the island (that are not included in the tourist guides). As you will see our home is surrounded by green. Crete was an agricultural island from the ancient times. If you want to experience this part of the island you can help my father in his agricultural activities. Depending on the period of the year of course you can get involved in different activities. For instance, during the Christmas period you can pick olives and participate in the process of making olive oil and during the summer period in August you can help to pick grapes and make wine or raki (our traditional Cretan drink)!

Other things to note

Experience Crete with all of your senses! 1. sight: see for yourself the beautiful landscapes, the historical monuments, the breathtaking sunset at the beach! 2. taste: experience the local cuisine and flavours of the Cretan diet. In the old town there are many little tavernas like mpakalogatos that will introduce you the local flavours. 3. hearing: listen to the traditional Cretan music or the calm roaring of the waves in the sea 4. touch: Touch the sand with your feet, feel the sun on your face 5. smell: the scent of the sea just some meters away is just unforgettable

Hosts are amazing, provided us with all the information we needed for our trip to Crete well in advance, including where to rent a car from which is necessary as Crete is a large island. The accommodation was perfect for 6 people (3 Couples), but could accommodate more. Zacherenia was always on hand to answer any questions before we arrived. The place is beautiful, the pictures to do not do it justice. Amazing views all around the property, especially on the terrace where there is a BBQ and Breakfast area. Very quiet even noise from nearby wedding venues, which are not frequent, are completely shut out by windows and shutters. The place is clean airy and spacious. You are about 15 to 20 minute drive from the town and a beach, we had no issues getting around with the car. Everything was way above our expectations and we would all highly recommend this, as a place to stay on your visit.

The house is huge and very clean and well equipped. It is in a rural area and has a large garden so it’s ideal for those who are looking to escape the noise of the city, and conveniently located only 10 minutes away from Knossos Palace. Stella was a lovely host, she showed us around and was very helpful even though we checked in late at night. She was also very flexible with the check out the following morning. She even helped us booking a table at a local restaurant where we had a great Greek dinner for a very cheap price. It is a shame that we only stayed one night.

The house is amazing and very spacious. We spent 2 nights here and it was wonderful as it was not directly in Heraklion but near enough with car. Highly recommended if one plans to stay in Heraklion! Zacharenia was very helpful all the time and check in was easy as Aunt Stella was already waiting for our arrival!

Our stay at the house was a week long. The house is large and luxurious. There in you can find anything you need. The location is convenient if you have a car. If you do it is easy to get to the landmarks, beaches, supermarkets and airport. You can drive from the airport to the house in 15 minutes. Crete is large so be prepared to drive a lot if you want to see many landmarks (e.g. Balos is 2-3 hours drive from the house). We had driven 1000km during the stay. The main highway is 5 minutes drive. Roads at Crete are very good. The host (Stella) is very hospitable and easy to stay in touch with. It was our first time on Crete and obviously we had a lot of questions. Stella responded quickly and informatively. We used (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). The house is very clean and neatly kept. The interiors are handy and beautiful, beds are very comfortable. We were able to accommodate 4 adults and 3 kids with no problems. The water is hot only at evenings but it is indeed hot. At mornings the water is cool. That wasn't a problem for us. There is an electric heater and the host allowed us to use it within an hour a day, but still the water didn't get hot quickly. The outside of the house is well kept as well. There is well equipped BBQ area. The sunset is amazing when looked at from the outside of the house.
