    The beds were very comfy and the bedrooms had lots of storage and space. The outdoor kitchen area was fantastic, loved the fact they had included a fridge. The pool was a great size and the sunloungers were very comfortable. There are so many...

Property information

Situated just 15 kms from the city of Heraklion, at the charming village of “Gouves” with a picturesque nature and an astonishing view we invite you to experience the Real Cretan Hospitality.

Neighbourhood information

Many locals choose to live in “Gouves” because the city Heraklion is just 15’ drive via the E-75 national road. This quiet “suburb” of Heraklion can combine quietness, calmed and relaxed atmosphere that a village can provide and at the same time being able to be in the centre without having to think of the traffic that normally it is the biggest problem in a city. Car rental is recommended. For anything else that is needed we will be glad to provide any information around the area as well as providing all the GPS details.
