Palaiokastro, Crete
Situated just 17 kms from the city of Heraklion, at the charming village of “Palaiokastro” with hills covered with olive groves, a picturesque nature and a beautiful beach we invite you to experience the Real Cretan Hospitality.

Our aim was to build discreetly luxurious and elegant maisonettes of 80 m2.

For those who want to experience the discreet luxury and privacy, the island of Crete has a solution in the form of 'Elea Maisonette' that redefines the boundaries of hospitality...

The fact that the beach is only 500 metres away is a bonus for people who would like to swim at the Cretan Sea overlooking the Old Castle (Palaiokastro) as well as the city of Heraklion.

In a short distance from the villa you can find convenient grocery stores and taverns. 500 meters from the beach begins the “Palaiokastro” gorge. The gorge is eas...

Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed for two weeks at Elea Maisonette.
It's location more or less in the middle of Crete makes it perfect for expeditions in every direction.
The house offers everything for a comfortable stay (air conditioning, pool for refreshment, everything is well equipped). The surrounding is very secure and quiet.

What makes this place makes so special is the host.
Vasilis is such a nice person and really cares about his guests and for every question he has a good tip or two. And his hints where to get the typical cretan food are really good - we never would found those places on our own.
Vasilis simply rocks :)

So this a 100% recommendation for everybody who wants to stay at a nice place and wants to see something from the isle and the people.

Management response:

Felix and his cousin were a role-model Guests! It is not so easy for me to write such a good review because many hosts will think that I am exaggerating. It was a real pleasure to meet such a nice and polite Group that they respected the maisonette at the highest standards. I would certainly recommend them to every future...

About the neighbourhood
Many locals choose to live in “Palaiokastro” because the city Heraklion is just 15’ drive via the E-75 national road. This quiet “suburb” of Heraklion can combine quietness, calmed and relaxed atmosphere that a village can provide and at the same time being able to be in the centre without having to think of the traffic that normally it is the biggest problem in a city.
Getting around
Car rental is recommended.
