The hotel is 50 km from heraklion airport. It is not new(some rooms are old, ask for the new or refurbished ones) but the ambiance is very nice and big. A big swimming pool fits nice in the mountain. It is quite near to faistos museum, so there is also archeological interest.
The big surprise is the trout breeding place, where the fish goes directly from the pool to your plate. It is also exciting watching the fish fighting for pieces of bread.
Salads with Fresh products from their garden, real bread (ask them to make flour in the water mill) from a wooden stove.
Half an hour away is a fantastic beach called ''komos''. eat grilled sardines at the only tavern at the left end of the beach.
If you can, swim from the beach with a swimming mask to a little rock that slightly gets over the surface a hundred meters approximately.
And there enjoy one of the most beautiful underwater vista, fishes, crystal clear waters, and colors.
Sit on the rock and enjoy!!!!
