This is a beautiful property, in a very pretty cretan village. The ladies who work there are very polite and the one who welcomed us (with a warm coffee and traditional pastries!) gave us a detailed description of the village and its history. We liked this a lot.
The Eliathos houses are situated after the end of the Archanes village, so you need a car to go there. The view is amazing.
The village is very well-organized. There is a bakery from where we bought traditional pastries (kalitsounia), there is a small market from where we bought our breakfast and there are several taverns and cafeterias.
Any of the meals can be provided in the residence as well, but you need to inform the ladies one day before, so that they go buy the ingredients and cook for you.
There are a few parts of the houses that need maintenance (like the washbasin faucet or the curtains) but in general, it is a great place to stay.
The location is very good as well, as it is 20 min. away by car from Heraklio (the capital of the island) and close to the national road which connects easily all 4 municipalities of the island.
