Fantastic Villa in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 semaines formidables dans le petit village de montagne d'Agios Ioannis. Le Manoir est magnifique, tout à fait conforme au descriptif et aux photos. Il est spacieux, très agréable à vivre et très propre. L'environnement est paisible, vous êtes dans les montagnes, entourés par les oliviers. La propiétaire Katerina, ainsi que son adorable maman qui vit à proximité, ont été d'une grande gentillesse, très accueillantes et généreuses. Katerina nous a reçu à notre arrivée avec un délicieux et copieux repas Crétois, elle a été attentionée tout au long de notre séjour. De même, Valia nous a beaucoup aidé, notamment en nous conseillant sur les activités et les visites à faire. Et il y a beaucoup à faire et à voir! En 15 jours, nous avons visité le Nord de la Crète d'Héraklion, en passant par Rethymno (la vieille ville, le Fort et le vieux port sont exceptionnels) jusqu'à l'île de Gramvoussa et le lagon de Balos (magnifique, à faire absolument!) Nous avons également visité les sites archéologiques et les villages dans les montagnes environnants. La plage la plus proche est celle de Panormo, mais nous avons préféré celle de Bali et sa jolie baie, très agréable. Un grand merci à Katerina, sa maman et à Valia pour ces 2 semaines inoubliables en Crète!

We spent 2 great weeks in the little village of Agios Ioannis. Askoutsis Manor is magnificent and is better than in the photos. It is spacious, clean and a lovely place to relax and forget everyday worries. The village is peaceful, surrounded by olive trees with great views of the mountains and valley. The owner Katerina and her mother are very kind and generous and are absolutely adorable. Katerina met us on our arrival, showed us around the villa, explained how everything worked and suggested places to visit. Her mother had even prepared some traditional Cretan food for us which were absolutely delicious. Katerina was very attentive to our needs and was always available by phone. Valia was very helpful and gave great advice on what to do and where to go. The beach, restaurants and shops are all close by in Panormos.

Crete is a beautiful place to visit and there is so much to see and do. Must visits are the archeology museum in Heraklion, ancient ruins of Knossos, Rethymno old town and venetian fort, Gramvoussa island and Balos lagoon.

We had a brilliant holiday.

demeure superbe et accueil chaleureux

  • 4 of 5

En immersion dans le petit village Agios Loannis, dans une demeure superbe, spacieuse qui correspond absolument au descriptif .

L 'accueil est excellent, les propriétaires sont plus que charmants et n'ont pas hésité à nous servir un repas grec à notre arrivée vers 22 heures et nous offrir l'essentiel pour le petit déjeuner du lendemain.

On recherchait le mode de vie crétois et la découverte du pays et on a trouvé tout cela dans les environs et plus loin avec des paysages superbes et des petits villages perchés qui semblaient d 'un autre temps.

N'hésitez pas si comme nous vous recherchez le confort et la découverte de la vie du peuple Crétois

Agios Ioannis and the surrounding villages are like live postcards, typical of the cretan landscape, pervaded by the aroma of Cretan cuisine and the sound of the Cretan lyre. People there live amidst nature and emotions, outside the code of behaviour found in big cities and no matter where you go, they will open their doors to you to treat you to a 'tsikoudia' and welcome you!

In Agios Mamas village, just 3 minutes away by car, guests will find a mini market, a regional tavern and a small traditional cafe.

In Perama town, which is 15 minutes away by car, you will find everything that you might need like shops, bakery, grocery store, butcher’s, taverns, cafes, supermarkets, ATM machines, pharmacies, gas stations and post office.

Also Panormo, is a friendly sea side village, 25 minutes away by car and well know for its sandy beaches. The two main beaches are Limanaki and Limni. Both of them are sandy with clear blue water and ideal for kids, as they are shallow and well protected from winds. The beaches are organised and equipped with sun beds, umbrellas. Water sports are also available.Even further to the east, there is a small cove with a pebbly beach, ideal for seclusion and snorkeling.

The village has all the facilities and amenities one would need : well-stocked mini-markets, post office, pharmacy, a doctor’s office, a butcher's shop, bakery (hot, fresh bread every morning from 9 am), various gift shops and traditional seaside shops at very reasonable prices.

Further, there is a good selection of cafes and excellent traditional tavernas, overlooking the harbour and the sea, which offer a warm welcome and a beautiful setting to enjoy some traditional Cretan food, fish as well as international dishes.

Panormo has regular bus itineraries every 30 minutes that connects Heraklion and Chania cities.
