Settle into this comfortable seaside apartment on the coast of Crete. Packing light is a must – you won't have much storage space for extensive shopping trips here. If you're looking for the optimal spot from which to explore Heraklion without any fuss, you're in the right spot. The cosy balcony offers lovely sea views, and you'll get plenty of natural sunlight during the day. You won't want to stay indoors for long though – with the Sea of Crete right outside, you'll have easy access to Koules Fortress and Heraklion Lighthouse.

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...
