Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Located in a peaceful area of Heraklion, this home is an ideal choice for a family or group of friends looking to explore Crete and avoid the hustle and bustle of the city centre. While the bedrooms aren’t the biggest, they have all you need for a comfortable night – and on the subject of sleep, just bear in mind that at full occupancy, two guests will have to make do with the sofa bed in the living room. We think the terrace is a nice touch, albeit rather shaded and without a view.

Home truths

    Parking in Heraklion can be tricky, so we recommend sticking to the easily accessible public transport where possible.

    At full occupancy, two guests will be sleeping on the sofa bed in the living area.

    There are open-sided stairs in this home. If you're bringing little ones, they'll need to be supervised at all times.

    Both bedrooms are quite small with limited storage space. However, they have everything you need for a comfortable night's sleep.

    The curtains in the second bedroom don't fully block out the sunlight. If you're hoping to enjoy a lie-in, you might want to pack an eye mask.

    To get you started and save a little room in your suitcase, complimentary travel-sized toiletries are provided.

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. You only have to glance at a photo of its glistening port to understand why this place attracts so many visitors each year, but Heraklion has much more to offer than just...
