A traditional village 18 kilometres south of Heraklion on the road to Mires. It is vibrant all the year round and is very attractive with 3 kafenions, primary school, 2 mini markets, florist, butcher, bars and tavernas. Set above the road it has winding streets. Only a couple of minutes drive from Venerato with clothes shops, DIY, 3 petrol stations, bank, P.O. laundry, flower shops etc. Presently a new road is being built nearby, but not close enough to involve noise, however this road will make this charming village very accessible to both the north and south coasts and will cut down the time for reaching both. Avgeniki is situated with a group of other villages at the centre of the island of Crete. Dafnes, Kerasia, Venerato and Siva are all close by and offer very good facilities. The location of Avgeniki is perfect for getting around the island. The capital of Heraklion, with its Ferry Ports and Airport are just 30 minutes drive away and the city itself is a Mecca for Shopping and Culture. The Bustling Beach resorts are a short distance in either direction. To the South of the village the beautiful southern Beaches and Resorts are all within easy reach along the National Roads. A very friendly easy going environment exists within the villages and although visited by some tourists there still exists a lively working atmosphere amidst the rolling hills of olive groves and vineyards. Excellent bus service hourly north and south.
