We choose this accomodation to avoid the crowd around Heraklione and we were right: after a day spent visiting a city or ruines is there something better to retire in a small village, in a typical cretan house, on a terrace looking the panorama or the gorgeus starred sky? Add that the owner Nike (pron. Niki) is of that special... More

We wanted to visit Knossos while in Crete but did not want to go the resort areas... this is a lovely place to stay if you are looking for something more authentic and traditional, and peaceful to boot... The house we stayed in was spacious and very nicely decorated. The best feature though was a lovely sun terrace with a... More

The village is located high (but not too much), a rural idyllic for travelers and country areas lovers. We've received a cozy Suite with super comfortable warm atmosphere of the ancient village with its narrow trails. It's like as being localized in Crete. All windows with views of fields, vineyards and olive groves. The sea horizon and Heraklion (20 minute... More

We stayed in one of the Agioklima apartments in Petrokefalo for 5 weeks spanning Feb-Mar 2014. It's hard to find the superlatives to describe what a wonderful time we had during our stay in Crete, and the setting in Petrokefalo was perfect for us. Niki is was an extremely friendly and welcoming hostess, the traditional apartments are beautiful, and the... More

Stayed for 4 nights in October. One of our most memorable accommodations in a seven week trip to Greece and Turkey. The apartment is spacious, clean and beautiful. Large outdoor patio to sit and view the mountains and olive groves. Situated in the small traditional village of Petrokefalo, away from the throng of tourists but still close enough to access...

The beautifully renovated village houses in the traditional setting of Petrokefalo feels directly like "home" and is the perfect place to stay for fun and work on the mystical island of Crete. With its central location about 15 minutes by car from Heraklion, this quiet apartment serves as the ideal home base for exploration and retreat. And with the warm... More

With thousands of years of experience behind them, one has the feeling that the people of Crete have figured out what really counts in life. These beautifully proportioned houses are in a setting of exquisite loveliness. You will need a car to get to them and do enlist the services of the friendly hostess, Nikki, to ensure that you find... More

Peaceful and quiet, Agioklima is a perfect place. The house is clean and confortable. The views over the valley, the mountains (place of birth of the god Zeus, as the tradition says) and over the village are magnificient. The owner, Niki, is very kind and her indications about Herakleion: museums, places to visit, etc. are very useful. The village itself,... More

It is perfect!! The house was spacious and so beautifully decorated! The bathroom was excellent! The owner was very helpful and kind! Loved the place! Really enjoyed the villa and the experiences. The peaceful rural setting - it was a 20 minute drive into Iraklion, the closest city. Very nice walking paths in the hills.
