Staying at Viglatoras gave our family a true insight into the Greek way of life and a beautiful Greek family. Outstandingly welcoming, friendly hosts. Delicious breakfast provided and at a very good price for the quality and variety. Only a 20 minute drive from Heraklion and day trip distance to many other sights. Simple, traditional accommodation with everything you need. I would plan for 2-3 nights to get the cultural insight, more if you’re wanting to go on hikes and visit caves in the surrounding region.

Yanis and Anastasia were kind and generous hosts at this charming cottage, which is set in beautiful surroundings and with mountain backdrop. The main house is perfectly maintained as a ‘museum’ and testament to Anastasia’s family history. Anastasia looked after our accommodation and comfort, whilst Yanis introduced us to villagers, village life and ‘raki’ production. The authentic local experience added another dimension to our holiday. Thank you.

If you want to find some peace and quiet, this is the place. Anastasia was very welcoming and helpful and the accommodation was basic Cretan design and spotlessly clean. It is like going back in time in the village of Sarchos. The roads, roadsigns and local drivers can be very challenging but it all adds to the excitement of the holiday!

From the onset, Yanis went out of his way to make sure we found the place and were comfortable. His welcoming nature and hospitality left us feeling that we were his guests rather than just customers. The accommodations are splendid. The apartments are rustic and beautifully made, but have all the amenities you'd want from a modern place e.g. AC, wifi. Outside is just beautiful, you walk out into a vibrant garden with views of hills in the background with all the splendor of Crete. Great place for some peace and relaxation, and the city of Heraklion is just 25 mins away. But the true attraction here, is the estate, countryside, and people of the area. Viglatoras and its hosts take you into their world for an authentic experience of rural Cretan life that is very hard to find otherwise if you are just a visitor. Would definitely return, and highly recommend.

Anastasia and her family (I mustn't forget Maria!) are warm, generous, extraordinary people. I felt completely welcomed into their home. My maisonette surpassed what I had seen on their website - I immediately fell in love with it. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and so peaceful. I got exactly what I was expecting of my time there. The food was wonderful - so much of it!! The people I met there just enhanced the experience and our "party" at the taverna (thank you Yannis) was so much fun. I would go back in a heartbeat - and fully intend to. This was my introduction to Crete and an experience I will never forget.
