If you are Looking for a magical vacation in nature ,with magic views of the sea, mountains all around ,the ringing goats grazing in the meadow, and clear mountain air the…… MourtzanakIs Resort is the perfect place. It is a calm and quiet place with a strong presence of nature. The resort is located in an ancient village called Achlada which is about a half hour far from Heraklion We had a small vacation unit which was quiet well equipped. The staff was polite and willing to help us in everything. Every request was fulfilled with a smile. The owner of the place, Marcus, is a friendly and charming person, with great hospitality.He made us feel at home . His son Valeri guided us in a tour to the mountains and ancient villages.It was very interesting and we had great time. We really recommand to take a tour with him. Eli, the manager of the place, helped us in many practical things. It was a perfect vacation, it was so hard to leave. Looking forward to returning soon…
We have been coming to Achlada since 2013, almost every year, visiting our friends Marcos and Valerianos. This place is so nice to stay, calm olive garden around, breathtaking sun sets every evening and beautiful sea views from each villa and terraces. The villa is clean and well designed, also pool is clean and refreshing. You can order tradition Cretan dinner for very good price, all done from local ingredients and really delicious. From this place you can travel to lots of other great beaches every day, just short drive away. Very close to Heraklion to visit museums, to do shopping and visit good restaurants too. This year is first year of Ellie and George taking care of apartments and they are doing they job really well with big enthusiasm, we were very happy to met them and drink wine together. It is really our love place, with great spirit, for sure we come next years again.…
Coming to Crete at least once a year we have stayed in many places during all the years. This one was by far the best we have ever been to. We had a wonderful time there! Its location is perfect… high on a Mountain with the view of the sea on the one side and Heraklion on the other. Watching the sunset In the evening feels like being in paradise. The apartments are very clean and equipped with everything you need! Travelling with children, the pool is the best thing to entertain them..You should definitely not miss the fantastic food served there! We were warmly welcomed by Elli and Giorgos who are the most friendly, open-minded and helpful hosts we have ever met!!! We are looking forward so much to swing them again next year Daniela, Babis, Maria and Manos
I spent three nights in this great ecotourism in achlada. The hosts are exceptional and you feel right at home. The food is all home made with garden and local ingredients. The accommodation is simply beautiful and you can hear the chant of the cicadas and the bells of the goats day and night. Elli and Markos are excellent hosts and generous with their time, information, meals and drinks.
Scenery is breathtaking! Wonderful relaxation. Perfect for families wanting some time out of hectic schedules. Simple & spacious accommodation. Great base for travelling around Crete. Lots of beautiful beaches to visit. Tips: - Bring hairdryer/iron if dependent on it. - You will need a car to get out and about. - If you arrive at night like we did, phone Costas (phone number on sign) Thank you to Costas for all your help & hospitality! I would highly recommend these villas & we would love to return!
we stayed two weeks in this beautiful and relax able place. the manager is a very kind and helpful person. the village (aghia pelagia) is only 5 minutes driving. you need to have a car to explore all Crete and to come back in the evening for relax.
My husband and i visited Mourtzanakis residence for a week.it was just what we needed.it was peaceful with amazing view even from our room.Anna and Elias were very friendly and thanks to them we ve tasted traditional cretan cuisine!!!delicious!!!thank you guys !!!
WE could not even imagine the fabulous views that the property offers! Breathtaking views with nice quiet location where we enjoyed ourselves and relaxed! The cretan hospitality by both staff members is something that surely caught our love and respect! In between trees, flowers we could expect nothing more than becoming one with the nature! Offering lots of eco-activities like fishing and hiking is a great opportunity for everyone to get away from the furious paste of life! Thank you for everything!
This is the most quiet and peaceful place in Crete! I went there with my partner and we had a great time together. You can fall in love there again and again! They have traditional food and the weather there is wonderful. The view in front of the swimming pool is amazing! I wish to go there again soon !
We stayed there in June 2018 with our kid and had we enjoyed the Cretan hospitality in a beautiful scenery. The villa was comfortable, very clean with a large balcony. Ilias and Anna were always willing to help us and make our stay, even more relaxing. I really hope to have the chance to visit this wonderful residence, in the future. I would definitely suggest it!!!!
