Set just a short walk from the beach, with various bars and restaurants nearby, this Heraklion apartment couldn't be better placed. It's ideal for couples after a relaxing getaway with everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Note that the kitchen is small, though it's perfectly suitable for preparing breakfast and lighter bites. But the real standout here is the private balcony boasting sea views, which serves as a lovely spot for evening aperitifs before heading into town for supper.

About Heraklion Town

Affectionately dubbed ‘small Athens’, Heraklion is Crete’s largest and most populated city. What started out as a fortified harbour town has grown into a bona fide tourist hotspot, popular for its year-round warm weather and palm-tree-lined seaside promenade.
