    Adventure on the doorstep in Askifou

    Nestled to the east of Crete's White Mountains, where the Ideon Cave is said to be the birthplace of Zeus, Askifou provides a relaxed base for visits to Greece's largest island. Split into 4 pretty hamlets, the village offers several hiking routes, including a popular trail through the scenic Imbros Gorge to Komitades. The high mountain plateaus of Niatos and Tavri, towering over all, offer a challenging alternative for experienced hikers. Perfect for visits with friends and family, there's always an adventure on the doorstep when you choose an Askifou vacation rental.

    Out and about in Askifou

    Outdoor time is always on the agenda in Askifou. When you're not exploring the village, set in a wide valley surrounded by wild mountains, you might be taking a scenic drive from your Askifou vacation rental to the island's southern coast. Here, you'll find Vrissi, Ammoudi and Sweet Water Beaches all competing to provide the perfect spot on the sand. For those who like a different type of adventure, Krionerida Cave, in the Laggos Ravine to the north, offers a unique way to explore a different side to Crete's diverse landscape.

    Exploring the past in ancient Askifou

    Like to uncover Askifou's heritage? Head to Kares, where a war museum displaying a selection of weapons that date back to the late 1700s is a small but fascinating spot. If you need more in the way of a culture fix, there's always the option of enjoying a day trip to the capital city of Heraklion. Alongside the much-lauded Heraklion Archeological Museum, the city counts the ancient Palace of Knossos and the 16th-century Koules Fortress among its many must-see attractions. National history and historical museums can also be found in the capital, making the journey from your Askifou vacation rental a worthwhile one.

    Spring and summer sunshine in Askifou

    Winters in Crete can be cold and wet, but are quickly replaced by the delights of spring in the months of April and May, when temperatures often soar past 70 degrees. The summer months of June through September are the most popular time to vacation on the island. Demand for rentals can be high, but should you score your favorite, you can look forward to up to 13 hours of blissful Mediterranean sunshine during the day, while the cooler nights offer respite from the heat. The warm water that graces the area in summer is a magnet for swimmers and snorkelers alike.

    Get back to nature in stunning Askifou

    Sprinkled with snow over the winter months, and sometimes until as late as June, the White Mountains dominate the center of western Crete. The natural highlights here include the cone-like peaks of the Mountain Desert and the meandering trails through Kormokopos Wood. With the chance to take in the unrivaled views from the Samaria and Vrissi Gorges, discover some of Greece's largest caves and descend into the area's potholes and precipices, opportunities for adventure just keep on coming.
