Our house is located in Meleses, a small village of 300 inhabitants, in the center of the prefecture of Heraklion, just 20km from the city center of Heraklion, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. It can be the starting point for your visit to the city of Heraklion, the archaeological site of Knossos but also to discover the beauties of the hinterland, to get in touch with the local culture, to experience the everyday life of its people and enjoy the warm hospitality.
“Our first airbnb experience was supposed to be one of our best travel trips. Melesses is a quiet village with hospitable residents and within walking distance of many attractions. Knossos, Archanes, Agios Vasilios, Alagni, Choudetsi, Myrtia, the wonderful southern beaches, the beautiful churches and the exquisite delights of the taverns will all be unforgettable. As for the warm nest created by Panagiotis and Roula, it is a stone house with two enchanting courtyards, which has everything the visitor might need, being an ideal place to relax. But it is the hosts who, with their natural courtesy and personal touches in the area that make you feel welcome. We look forward to returning. Our very first airbnb experience was meant to be one of our best trips. The village of Meleses is a peaceful place with friendly and hospitable people, within walking distance of many sights worth visiting, surrounded by endless vineyards and olive groves. Only some of them are the archaeological site of Knossos, the traditional town of Archanes, the nearby picturesque villages of Aghios Vasileios, Alagni, Houdetsi, Myrtia etc, the fascinating south beaches, the astonishing old churches, which, along with our exquisite food tasted in the little taverns, will remain in our memory for ever. The nest that Panagiotis and Roula have created is a unique stone house with two wonderfoul yards, equipped with everything guests might need, transformed into an ideal place of relaxation. Yet, it is the hosts themselves who with their innate kindness and politeness and their personal touches all over the place make you feel welcome. We just can't wait to go back.”

“Allthough we only stayed one night at Eleni’s place, we enjoyed it a lot. Our plane arrived at Heraklion airport later in the evening. We didn’t want to drive long so we chose her villa near the airport and also the historical palace of Knossos. Eleni contacted us by whatsapp and was there to welcome us with home made raki. It was our first time in Crete, so we didn’t know what to expect. Her welcome was a good first impression of the Greek hospitality. We loved the spacious lower part of her villa in the hills, south of Heraklion with a seperate entrance and enough privacy. We sat outside until late enjoying the evening. It was lovely quiet at night. Because we didn’t have had time to do shopping she made us a great breakfast for a small price. Over all we can recommend her B&B, also for a longer stay.”
