Constellation of the northern hemisphere always visible. Sophocles and Euripides referred to Cassiope as the woman who is seated on the throne, reference which has to do with the famous queen of Ethiopia Cassiope. Also mentioned by other cultures as « She of the Throne », and «Woman seated». That is the key figure in the constellation.

Really friendly hosts and a beautiful place to stay. We needed somewhere to stay for a few days whilst attending a wedding in nearby Heraklion. Not wanting to be in the city we chose Archanes, and we were so pleased with this. The village itself is beautiful and full of lovely places to have coffee and eat. It's close enough to Heraklion and other tourist spots (e.g. Knossos) to visit these easily, whilst managing to have a peaceful stay and appreciate village life. The only thing to say about Archness is be warned that some of the streets are very narrow to drive down...and you do need your own/a rental car to get about here and make the most of your stay!). And Eliathos is a lovely little complex of holiday homes. So peaceful and bright, with everything we needed for our short stay.

Such a nice and relaxing experience at Eliathos Villas! I stayed at Sirios. I was greeted late in the night with fruits, cheese and a big smile. I felt at home from first moment. The mountains, the breeze, the trees... I slept as a baby in my bed. Everything was smooth, easy. 30 min from Heraklion where I visited the new Archeological Museum. 15 min from Knossos Palace. Eliathos is a place to relax and observe cretan village life. My wifi conection was perfect. The house has everything you could need. The host is always available and provides you information about the area and good tips. I would highly recommend this place to everyone who is looking for rest, quietness and relax.

Response from Ioannis Athinaios:
Inge, is a very sweet girl, travelling around to more agricultural zones and “authentic” areas(as far as culture is concerned), like the traditional village of Archanes. From the guests that loves to explore the culture and the people at the place that she visits. Such an ideal guest for us. Really gentle and social, i enjoyed our conversations and i hope to see her again one day. Argyro

Our expirience at Eliathos residence was amazing. All the Staff was very kind and very helpful. The morning after our arrival we were greeted with a wonderful and delicious welcoming brunch, with the occasion the staff give us some tips of the best not turist place of the island!!! On the Last day our flight was delayed ultil 11 p.m. and we were given the possibility to benefit of our room until the evening. We couldn't complain about anything!!!! Archanes, where the facility is sited, is a very nice rural little town with a lot of service and very easy to reach from heraklion and the airport (15/20 minutes by car). The beauty of the moltitude of vineyard and olive tree grove that surround the facility is beyond words. I recommend this facility to everyone who does not like be in the big city where there are too many turist!!!! I hope to be back very soon. La nostra esperienza al residence Eliathos è stata eccellente. tutto lo staff, nessuno escluso, e disponibile e gentilissimo. la mattina successiva del nostro arriva siamo state accolte con un piccolo e gustoso brunch di benvenuto e con l'occasione lo staff ci ha dato alcuni consigli sui molti posti NON turistici da visitare. Il nostro volo di ritorno decollava alle 23 e ci hanno permesso di usufruire della camera fino al pomeriggio. Non abbiamo nessun motivo di lamentarci!!! Archanes, dove si trova la struttura, è un paesino rurale con molti servizi e facile da raggiungere dal centro di Heraklion e dal suo aeroporto(15/20 minuti di macchina). Le distese di uliveti e vigne che circondano la struttura e il paese è di una bellezza sorprendente. Lo consiglio a tutti quelli che non amano alloggiare nei centri dove le onde di turisti invado le strade. Spero di ritornarci il prima possibile!

als 2 paare mit 3 kinder unter 3, fanden wir die Villa nicht gut geeignet für uns. wir mussten immer darauf passen dass die kinder: - nicht die Treppen aufklettern, da die gefährlich sind. - nicht ihre kopf in die glass-tische anstoßen Ich würde diese Villa empfehlen nur an familien mit älteren kinder. Positive: - der Ort hat seine Charme. Mann kann gut die Sterne in der Nacht angucken. es gibt auch viele Fruchtbäume in der nähe. - gut ausgestattet Küche - der Stadt Archanes ist klein aber hat trotzdem guten Restaurants. Negativ: - mann muss gute fahr-fähigkeiten oder gute auto versicherung haben, der weg ist eng und nicht sehr einfach zu fahren. - nicht gut geeignet für kleine kinder
