Overview

These cottages are situated on the side of a hill on the eastern feet of mountain Psiloritis (Idi) at a height of 800m.They are at the entrance of the gorge of Ag. Irini, 25 km west of Heraklion City and only 4km from the historic village of Krousonas.
Behind them stands the impressive mount Gournos which is a protected Natura area due to its wide variety of plants and animals but mainly because the few remaining pairs of Gypaetus Barbatus build their nests there.
At the front they have a panoramic view of a plain and the sea in the far distance.Inside they combine the comforts of a modern home with the warm and friendly atmosphere and they are big enough for 2 or 4 people each.

There is a big living room-dining room-kitchen a bathroom and a slightly raised bedroom.

All cottages have central heating, fireplace and big verandas with a magnificent view to the four points of the compass.

The group of cottages has a swimming pool, a small and friendly reception that also serves as a lounge café and of course a traditional Tavern where visitors can taste local specialities made of natural products of Crete.
