The comfort and convenience of Home in a Villa of 200 sq.m. on two levels with pool !! Peace, quiet and convenience: that’s what we offer in a fully furnished Villa with pool and all the comfortableness to make you feel like at home!

The space
Relax and enjoy an entire Villa on the Island of Crete! The house is located within walking distance of the traditional village Katalagari, overlooking the extensive olive groves and vineyards of the area as well as a breathtaking view to the Aegean sea. We are located just 12 km south of the islands’ capitol Heraklion and 2 km from the scenic town of Archanes, which was lovingly restored to its original beauty. It is one of the most picturesque villages on Crete and has been voted by the EU as “Best Village Restoration Effort”. It is also very famous for its excellent wine and Mediterranean architecture.

Guest access
Walk inside our Villa, kick off your shoes and let the floor tiles cool your feet, bring your bags into the bedrooms, where you have comfortable beds for a good night's sleep and lots of closet room for your personal belongings. Check out the spacious kitchen on the first floor and brew yourself a coffee or tea with the aromatic dried Cretan herbs we harvest from our garden. There is a gas range and a cooking stove as well as utensils if you're in the mood to cook and the grocery store in walking distance provides everything to get you started. Or kick back in our huge living room with TV and free Wi-Fi as you stretch out on the sofa or melt into an oversized chair. There is a desk if you need to catch up on emails and you can even do a light workout in the small gym we have in the attic. Have a shower in the bathroom, where you are provided with towels, body wash, shampoo, hair dryer and other amenities as needed.
You will have over 200 square meters of space on two levels all to yourself!
Feel free to wander outside and have your breakfast, coffee or cocktails on the spacious balcony with outdoor-furniture on the 1st level, sitting in the southern sun or under the shade of the parasol by the pool, head to the shaded sitting area in the yard to read the book you always wanted to or just enjoy a relaxing day in our cushion lounge chairs by the pool, that will keep you cool on hot summer days.

Other things to note
The house is in a quiet area that seems secluded when compared to crowded Heraklion, but you're not far from the action. By car you reach the city center, the port and airport of Heraklion in approx. 20 minutes or you can take a leisurely walk to Archanes in about 30 minutes, spending an afternoon in this picturesque village to take your time getting good pictures, visit the old silent churches, have a glass of wine with the locals or just watch the people walking by the village square. There are several banks, pharmacies, grocery stores, coffee shops and restaurants in Archanes, offering delicious Cretan cuisine worth trying.

If you want to take the local bus from Archanes to go downtown Heraklion, it will take you to the Liberty square and it's well worth the time to have a stroll through the old part of the city. There are plenty of shops, restaurants and bars that have become the favorite stops for many of the locals. It's a colorful and dizzying way to spend a few hours, and some people even make a day of it. There are plenty of places to eat, drink and shop there and I'd be happy to give you some recommendations.

We are a family with 2 children 2 cats and 1 dog. We are staying near the house, so we are available at any time to offer our help to our guests. We do love children, pets and hiking on the mountains, in the gorges and on the beaches. We can help you renting a car or minibus and we can give you directions for any activity in Crete or the islands around. I do speak English, German, Frensh & Italian. Our region also produces goat or sheep milk, vegetables, fruits, wine, raki and excellent quality extra virgin olive oil.

During your stay
If I'm around I can offer suggestions on good eats, things to do and places to see. I enjoy spending time in my garden, so you might find yourself digging and planting along side of me, if I can sweet-talk you into it. Our curious and friendly dog Darkos may ask you to pad him if you're outside in the garden.
