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!
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.
The whole house is at your disposal! Of course I will please ask you to treat it like it was your own house with respect and care.
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)!
