A gorgeous listed village which has been tenderly renovated with grants organised by the previous Mayor of the village. Delightful traditional houses and shops. Many traditional tavernas serving food at surprisingly low prices considering how many tourists pass through to admire the local architecture. It has all amenities including mini markets, post office etc., and is decorated throughout with plants and flowers. An all year round "living" village. It has an excellent bus route to Heraklion and with the advent of a new road nearby is barely 15 minutes drive to Heraklion, the airport and sandy beaches.
