My place is just 5km to Knossos Palace and it has a stunning view to the mountains of Psiloritis, the town of Heraklion and the sea. It is ideal for hiking, since there are numerous of routes around the area. The house is completely new-build (2015) in the middle of an olive tree field and very quiet. Couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids) are most welcome to have fun and relax...
Just common sence things... Respect for the apartment (which has been constructed with lots of care and love), the neighbours (who are very far away but not deaf) and the nature around you...

I work as a flute player and teacher for many years now and have therefore travelled a lot and stayed in many different towns. I've also studied Statistics. It's less than two years now that I'm staying in my own house in Vasilies, which is my origin village (although I grew up in Germany) and the place where most of my relatives live. It's the same house where I'm inviting you to stay!
I produce my own extra virgin olive oil from the trees that you will see around you and have also free chickens to have my own fresh eggs.
I like reading a book in the garden, having a swim in the winter (there are beautiful beaches just 20 minutes from my house) or just hanging out with friends. Quiet things really- I guess because my job is loud enough!
