Built in the highest point of Axos, in Rethymnon, facing the Ancient Minoan Town, Archontiko Manias is 17 mi from Heraklio Town. It features accommodations units with a seating area. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel! Upon arrival the staff immediately offered to upgrade us to their best suite, free of charge. If you are going to stay here I highly recommend you request their honeymoon suite as it offers the most breathtaking private balcony views of the mountains. The food at the restaurant is unreal, everything was absolutely delicious. The breakfast is fantastic, everything is made fresh from their farm. Also, this is the perfect opportunity for a quiet getaway if you wanna escape the crowds of tourists that flock to the beach resorts. There weren’t many other people around which we loved (Although we did visit in mid September, I’m sure they’re busier here in the summer). Also the hospitality is amazing, all of the staff were so welcoming and friendly. For the price, you get so much here! This place is truly a hidden gem on the island of Crete and a must see if you are visiting. Also be sure to visit their family farm while you are here, it was a wonderful experience! We will be back for sure!
Ellinospito is located in Axos. Built in stone, it offers self-catering accommodations opening out to a terrace with mountain views. The beaches of Panormos and Bali lie within 16 mi. Amazing owners, despite my shoddy communication because of unforseen circumstances they stood up in the middle of the night to check me in and make sure everything was in order. The room was lovely, the bathroom as well. There is a really nice pool. The view is spectacular.
Located in Anogeia, ''Prasini Folia'' apartments -great terrace and view has self-catering accommodations with a balcony and free WiFi. The property has mountain views and is 29 miles from... We loved our stay in this Cretan home. Maria had furnished it in a traditional way: it felt like it was full of beautiful family heirlooms. There is also a large sunny terrace, perfect for relaxing.
Unique experience in a beautiful location. Loved the fresh food, evenings with music and open fire pit with meats cooking (only some nights). Guided tours/hikes they offer are only certain days of the week, but great choices if you are there on the right day. Very peaceful and quiet environment to be in with a wonderful pool to relax by. Easy parking (windy mountain drive to get there). Plenty of walking trails/hiking/village to visit. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you want 3 days to relax and unwind.
