Despite not arriving until gone 11 o'clock at night our host was waiting for us at the accommodation and we were shown round straightaway. We arrived from the airport by taxi but Artemis arranged car hire for us the following day with the car brought to us a couple of hours later and collected when we left. The properties are at the top of a very steep hill above the village so a car is needed if you want to get out and about however the main roads are easily accessible and travel by car around Crete is easy. The village has a great choice of restaurants and a couple of supermarkets. The property was as described in the listing and had everything we needed for our stay; bedding and towels were changed every couple of days and everywhere was very clean. The grounds were beautiful with every property surrounded by fruit trees and bushes. The pool was in a beautiful setting overlooking the village with a view of the mountains. Artemis was always around if we needed anything and was very helpful. We had a lovely stay in beautiful, peaceful surroundings.

This is very nice and quite place. Only 20 minutes from Heraklion, you'll find a place that is not full of tourists. Small village Archanes have many caffe and restaurants with tasty greek menu. The Eliathos itself can give nice and big house, swiming pool, lovely view and terific clean air. We loved this place very much, it can be used as base for trips in Heraklion aria or as place for nice family vocation. Take my advice and go to Agia Pelagia beaches, it gonna take you about 40 minutes, but believe me you wont regret.

Впечатления от отдыха этих вилах складывается из двух вещей, скажу опередив события, всё более чем понравилось, всё супер. Итак поподробнее. Первая часть - это сама местность. Это не туристический центр, вы там не увидите толп шастающих туристов, только изредка залётные автобусы привозят голдящую толпу. Зато вы увидите настоящий греческий колорит, вы увидите стариков, сидящих целыми днями в кафешках с чашкой кофе и стаканом воды, вы увидите чистую, ухоженную деревню, в которой тротуары моют с порошком. Впечатлений это оставляет гораздо больше, чем пресловутый олинклюзив и заеженные тур-маршруты. Вы там сможете купить в местных лавочках настоящий хэнд-мейд сыр, мёд тамошний, свежий хлеб прям из пекарни, в общем настоящая деревня, но очень интересная. Ещё немаловажный плюс этого места - климат, здесь нету той жары, духоты и влажности, которая есть в пляжных отелях, кондиционер там точно не нужен. Из минусов - без машины там будет непросто, общественного транспорта я там не видел, а от выллы до магазинов примерно километр-полтора. Теперь вторая часть - сами виллы. Это комплекс из 4-х двухэтажных котеджей, Вам предоставляют один из этажей. Общая парковка и общий бассейн в наличии. Вилла стартовала в 2007 году, но до сих пор в идеальном состоянии, чуствуется постоянное внимание. Внутри чувствуешь себя как дома, а не в отеле. Мебель будто только что из магазина. Комнаты просторнее рядовой советской квартиры. Всё продумано до мелочей, каждая деталь и внутри и на территории стоит на своём месте и не зря, всё удобно до той степени, что не испытываешь ни в чём потребности, кроме как открыть ещё бутылочку вкусного критского вина. Персонал отзывчив, как это и должно быть. При нас доделывали своё кафе с кухней, так что проблем с питанием не будет, хота в Арханисе много таверн. Познкаомились с сыном хозяев (это семейный бизнес) Иоанис, тебе отдельное спасибо, он занимается дизайном и архитектурой виллы, путешествует по всему миру в поисках новых идей. Теперь понятно, почему всё так продуманно. Интернет очень быстрый, ТВ цыфровое. Вобщем по ощущениям на все 5 звёзд. После отправились на неделю в пляжный отель в Ретимно, при более высокой цене обплевались и попросились к ним обратно. Резюмируя скажу: Это место идеально для семьи с детьми, для парочек, которым хочется побольше побыть вместе, для компаний друзей.
