A sought-after village, which is very charming and unspoiled and has houses with large gardens; the whole area is very green and produces olive oil, grapes and raisins. It is home to influential Cretans and foreigners alike and is situated only 20 minutes from the best hospital in Crete and about the same to the capital. A permanent or holiday home for the discerning. A very nice village situated 12 kilometres from Heraklion Airport and 10 minute drive from the sandy beach of Ammoudara. It is a very green and quiet area but is still convenient for the city of Heraklion so there are many people who can live in it.
