AgioKlima Tradional Houses
Reviewed March 4, 2013

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 most of central Crete. Niki was a wonderful host. Make sure you get good directions and arrive during daylight. It is easy to get lost but more than worth the effort.

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 and helpful house owner this place is a little heaven on earth.

My mother and I, we had a great time in this house!!! First of all, Niki, the owner, welcomed us like we always knew each other!! The house was really clean and well decorated. We felt immedialtely comfortable! Our house had a huge private terrasse with a fantastic view on the vineyards and the sea. It was exactly what we expected. A traditional place, near the main city and the roads to visit easily the island. We loved Crete and cretan people, they know how to welcome strangers.
It was a perfect trip and Niki's house was the perfect place to enjoy the real Crete.

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 them the first time. After that, driving the mountain roads is pure pleasure, if a little breathtaking. Greece is a small country(11 million), so while we may know a lot about its classical history, the nature of the people today is more of a mystery. I found them warm, friendly and amazingly generous. A stay in one of these houses is the perfect way to get to know them.

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, Petrokéfalo, is small and peaceful, a place for living, a few days or for a longtime. It is not far from Herakleion and other interesting places, like Myrtia, and its Nikos Kazantzakis Museum.We lived in Agioklima like our house.

Room Tip: All the houses are good, but for me the better is this with the room upstairs.

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.

Last summer I went to spend two months in Crete for work, but also for some holidays. The first day I arrived I was shocked by the views from this house to Psiloritis mountains and the valley. The village (Petrokefalo) is very calm, but also you can enjoy local parties like a villager. People in the village is very friendly and welcoming. In the taverna, owned by Anna and Panos, you can taste some of the most delicious and typical Cretan dishes. The house is very nice furnished. Its is in a traditional Cretan style, but you can also use Internet connection. One of the most surprising experiences is to share a time with locals at the Cafeneion, tasting a Greek coffee. Niki, the owner, is a marvellous person. She made me feel like at home there.
