Filippakis Minas
Villa Fyllosia (pronounced fee-loh-sya) was built and decorated with the Cretan tradition and landscape in mind. Located just 14 km south of the capital city of Heraklion, our villa is nestled in a private olive grove and a small pine forest. You will enjoy unobstructed views of Heraklion and the island of Dia in the north, Psiloritis mountain in the west, and the Dikti mountain range in the east. Whether you are looking for a relaxing and quiet retreat or a home base while you explore the many attractions Crete has to offer, Villa Fyllosia has everything you need. Enjoy a leisurely stroll to the Fourni forest located within walking distance, or choose one of the many country roads to explore the nearby picturesque villages around Mount Giouchta. The town of Archanes is only 2.8 km away, and there you can find multiple restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, and a pharmacy in addition to historic churches. There are also multiple museums and archeological sites right in Archanes.
Hello, my name is Minas Filippakis, and I was born and raised in the city of Heraklion in Crete, Greece. I have been in the culinary business for over 20 years and a Chef for the last 3 years, and I have always enjoyed meeting new people, hearing their stories, and offering my guests soul-filling delicious experiences. For the past 1 1/2 years, I have been hosting guests in my home, and I am passionate about hospitality, meeting people, food & wine, music, and hiking. Every guest is special to me, and I like to treat them this way. I have traveled to many places like Boston Massachusetts, France, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Turkey and I would love to travel more. Over the years, I have developed a deep passion for hospitality, and I believe that every guest deserves a special and personalized experience. Aside from my love for hospitality and food, I am also an avid traveler who enjoys hiking, listening to music, and spending time with my family and friends. I'm dedicated to creating an unforgettable and personalized experience for my guests, and I'm excited to welcome and connect with visitors from all corners of the world .
At Villa Fyllosia you will be closer to nature than ever before. You will find yourself immersed in the beautiful, untouched Cretan landscape and unobstructed island views. Enjoy a leisurely stroll to the Fourni forest within walking distance, or choose one of the many country roads to explore the nearby picturesque villages around Mount Giouhta. The town of Archanes is only 2.8 km away, and there you can find multiple restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, and a pharmacy in addition to historic churches. There are also numerous museums and archeological sites right in Archanes. You will be a short 20-minute drive from the capital city of Heraklion, where you can enjoy the vibrant nightlife, many museums, and attractions. Crete offers the ultimate combination of carefree vacations and natural beauty, which is reflected on its beautiful beaches. From the organized lively beaches on the north shore to the hidden emerald bays of south Crete, you will have the opportunity to experience Crete at its best!
