Property and local area description
Situated 12 kms southwest of the city of Heraklion and barely 1 km outside the traditional Cretan village of Tylissos, motivated by imaginative zest and striving to maintain our respect towards its natural surroundings, we built this four star, luxurious resort.
The estate spreads over 50 acres, far from urban noise and overly crowded tourist designations.
It lies in the midst of thick greenery, overwhelmed by various kinds of trees including olive groves, orange groves, chestnut trees and vines all the while partaking in the rough, steep beauty of Goniano Canyon.
The sea, just a stones throw away, flavours the vertical cliffs, the enchanting view and the constant change of scenery with its salty breeze thus creating a pure and typical Cretian image.
About the studios
The day may begin with a rich breakfast in the estates traditional coffee house alongside the rising sun.
Our guests can let loose in the shade under the trees reading a book or sampling traditional meze and raki in the Cretan tavern which we lovingly built or taking a bicycle into the river trail and the surrounding mountains making their way from the cave of the Holy Fire to the village of Tylissos with its rich archaeological findings and the unparalleled local hospitality.
Upon returning to the estate, the invinting B.B.Q, the fully equipped fitness room, relaxing turkish baths and the pool are at their disposal.
We would recommend that you let the sunset catch up with you at your private veranda, while you allow yourself to be distracted by the sound of flowing water and the sight of nature, wild and blooming.
As for those days when you cannot avoid the use of a car, things could not be simpler: the most prominent destinations, such as the city of Heraklion, the airport, the harbour, Knossos, organized beaches and the tourist resorts of Ammoudara and Agia Pelagia are no more than 10 or 20 minutes away.
After all, the highway that connects the biggest Cretian cities to each other lies but 5 kms from the estate.
Each studio can accommodate 2 or 3 people with a fire place, a sitting room and a top-of-the-line kitchen.
In the 3 bed studios, in addition to an extra bedroom, the master bedroom also comes in the form of a traditional, wooden cretan attic.
In the bathroom there is also a Jakuzzi.
The studio can accomodate 2 adults and 1 child on extra bed or baby cot.
***The baby cot is free of charge***
****Extra person from 5 years old, 15 euros per night****
