“We expected a lot from the airbnb reviews ...and were not disappointed the slightest! Vivi's place is a small studio but very simple and cosy, everything was impeccable when we arrived. The terrasse and the pool perfect for some afternoon chill after a morning of visits.The kitten family was a welcomed bonus! Also, location is pretty good when visiting center or the island. Last but not least, Vivi and her faily where exceptionally welcoming and thoughful, made us really feel like we were with family. BEST host we ever had so far with Airbnb. EFCHARISTO VIVI, hope to come visit again in the future!”
Our place is build in the area of the Village Agios Mironas near iraklion (28km) in the Island of Creta. The village is a very nice place where you can find almost everything to shop, have a coffee place and relax in a traditional tavern. The level is 800m above the sea so the air is always fresh and clear !! There is many beutiful places you can visit around , take a walk or do mountain bike..
“No matter what all critics are saying.. trust me there is no critic that can describe how marvelous this place is. The house is isolated from the main village at the end of a hill. The view from the yard is breathtaking!! The only sounds you hear all day long is from crickets. We spent most of the day in the pool swimming and gazing the view. The house is fully equipped from fruits to basic commodities (like milk, oatmeal, rice, pasta etc) and if you need anything extra you will find it at a small market close to the village square 7min walk from the house. Yannis was a great host, always stand by for anything we needed. We were lucky enough during our stay to run into the annual village festival with traditional music, food and drinks. This place is fully recommended if you want to clean your mind and your soul.”
This traditional house is a totally renovated stone house still preserves its authentic character, suitable for people seeking for peaceful and quiet vacation! Here you will experience unique moments of relaxation in an authentically traditional area!
“We loved our stay at Soula’s place so much, it was our favorite place so far on our trip through the Greek islands. It truly felt like a home away from home. There is a patio in the back (with a fragrant fig tree) and front where you can sit and have your coffee or wine. There is also laundry and a full kitchen, which allowed us to go to the market and cook dinner in. The house is well insulated from the heat and very quiet - it was so easy to relax! Also, Soula’s mother was so kind to us, coming by to check on us and give us treats, even though we didn’t know any Greek. I highly recommend learning some phrases if you’re going to stay here for any length of time. It will make your experience in the village very rewarding. We aren’t city people, so we preferred our stay in Kerassa much more than the time we spent in Heraklion. We liked the countryside, quiet farm roads, rolling hills lined with olive trees and grape vines leading up to Psiloritis, where you can hear the sheep being herded home in the evening. For a nice “hike”, I recommend walking up to the ruins at Prinia, first established by the Minoans. Use Google maps. It takes you gently uphill through idyllic farm roads for about 1.5-2 hours until you get to the archeological site. There is some walking on paved roads, but you will hear the cars coming and can stand to the side. The site is in the process of being excavated, and there’s not much information on site, but it’s very neat just to walk around and discover it for yourself. There is also a small church with an excellent view of the valley (all the way to Heraklion). I recommend Soula’s place if you want to experience a little of traditional village life and get away from the tourist crowds and the busy city, without being far from any of the big attractions. We loved it!”
