Snuggled right in the heart of colourful Heraklion, this lovable little apartment is perfect for families and small groups of friends that want to sit right in the centre of the action. With wonderful vistas of the lively city streets, this place is steeped in style, with a montage of modern furnishings and warming home comforts peppered from room to room. The contemporary open–plan kitchen, dining and living area is bright and breezy, leading out onto a beautiful balcony area. Furnished with a dining table and two chairs, there’s no better spot to sip on your morning coffee. Simply pop on your shades and your sun hat and watch as the charming walkways slowly fill up with shoppers and passers by. We love the soothing neutral colour scheme and stone–cladded walls, bringing the outside in. The tiled floors feel cooling underfoot, meanwhile the fully–equipped kitchen presents the perfect place to whip up a tasty Greek feast. We couldn't be more certain that you'll love the comfort of your cosy new home from home, but with a whole host of wonderful things to see and do – many just a short distance away – getting out and exploring is an absolute must. Heraklion is rich in historical charm, and there's a fresh treat for the eyes at every turn. From the Palace of Knossos, just outside the city, to the ancient Cathedral of St. Minas, for those that love to immerse themselves in culture, these foregone landmarks will provide plenty to marvel at.

    Parking in Heraklion can be tricky, so we recommend sticking to the easily accessible public transport where possible – though we think the best way to see the city is on foot

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...
