About Yiannis

Dealing with tourism all my life and working in the tourism industry the last 20 years at large hotels teach me how to treat people the right way. Always ready to assist you or answer your questions.

Yiannis purchased this villa in 2014

Why Yiannis chose Iraklio

Our first year of operation showed us that 100% of our guests where totally satisfied. We are sure that we have a great value for money and a great house for holidays..Many choices of local tavernas to enjoy a meal and near attractions and beautiful beach very near.

What makes this villa unique

Wake up early and use one of the verandas outside to have your breakfast overlooking the cretan land and sea. Relax at night outside watching a sky full of stars away from city lights or just have a great bbq at lunch time under the shadow.

Book a cooking lesson by Yiayia Maria one of the best traditional cooks in the area and try together recipes as Cretans do at home.

Des vacances de rèves

  • 5 of 5

Nous pratiquons la Crète depuis des années mais pour la première fois en direct chez l'habitant. Que dire...

- Une propriété fabuleuse, comme partout ici il faut une location de voiture,

- Un emplacement idyllique vous n,êtes pas perdu au milieu de nulle part et pourtant seul au monde sur le plateau d'une colline sans vis à vis.

- Localisation parfaite, les routes de l'est sont belles :) si vous connaissez l'ouest vous savez de quoi l'on parle ici !

- L'accès au Sud est possible ici sans trop de route (une heure environ)

- Je finirai par nos hôtes : Une famille formidable à l'image de la propriété c'est à dire standing et simplicité. Juste une relation parfaite :) Les crétois sont des gens formidables et accueillants, Yiannis et Madga en sont les dignes héritiers.

Alors bonnes vacances à vous, si le paradis existe il est en Crète


We practice Crete for years but for the first time live at the inhabitant. What to say...

- A fabulous property , as everywhere here you need a rental car,

- An idyllic location you do , are not lost in the middle of nowhere and yet alone in the world on the plateau of a hill without opposite .

- Perfect Location , roads from the east are beautiful :) you know west you know what we are talking here!

- Access to the South is possible here without too much road ( about an hour )

- I'll finish by our guests: A wonderful family in the image of the property ie luxury and simplicity. Just perfect :) Relationship Cretan are wonderful and friendly people, Yiannis and Magda are the worthy heirs .

So happy holidays to you, if heaven exists it is in Crete

Great holidays in Yiannis' house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Crete and in Yiannis' house! The description and photos are exactly the truth : the house is brand new, comfortable, well maintained and well equiped with wifi, air conditionning and satellite TV. It is located about 15' drive from the beach, in the countryside, on a butte among olive trees with a stunning view on the landscape and the sea in the horizon. You find nice tavernas, small shops for groceries, butcher, bakery, fruits & vegetable about 10' away.

Yiannis and his family (who live in Crete) are adorable, very welcoming and of great help to organise the holidays from abroad.

We highly recommend this house, especially that they are building a huge pergola with a big barbecue and a swimming pool, that will just be wonderful!

une bien jolie maison

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes restés trois jours dans cette jolie maison perdue au milieu des oliviers et nous avons été ravis du calme, de la propreté et de la vue magnifique sur les champs d'oliviers et sur la mer. Nous ne sommes qu'à 10 minutes de la mer et des villages touristiques et c'est tant mieux car on découvre ici une Crète authentique.

La maison est très bien équipée tant en vaisselle qu'en linge.

Une location à recommander chaudement.

La bellezza e il relax

  • 5 of 5

La casa di Yiannis è una vera perla, tutto nuovo, pulito e funzionale!

Nonostante la distanza dal mare è un vero angolo di paradiso, con una vista mozzafiato e la brezza che arriva dal mare!

La casa risulta molto comoda per visitare la costa nord/est e sud/est dell'isola.

Yiannis è davvero gentilissimo, disponibile e cordiale! Saremmo voluti rimanere di più!
