Villa Kazan enjoys a prestigious hillside spot with sensational uninterrupted Gulf of Heraklion views. You can follow the path to a private beach or get in the car and drive for five minutes to arrive at one of Crete’s special wonders, Palaiokastro Beach. Palaiokastro is next to the charming inland village of Rodia. Rodia also overlooks the sea with Crete’s mountains as a backdrop. With far-reaching vistas of Heraklion city and the Gulf of Heraklion, it is a heavenly spot where guests can enjoy total privacy. Rodia is very friendly with the locals making you feel very welcome. You can visit the beautiful, serene Savathania nunnery, another beautiful place with gorgeous views or take the scenic mountain road that leads to Agia Pelagia, a stunning beach at the bottom of the mountain. A longer drive takes you to the stunning coastal town of Agios Nicholas with its wonderful shops, restaurants and saltwater lake. The Milatos Cave in Sissi is worth a stop too.
Within very easy reach, the vibrant city of Heraklion boasts gorgeous beaches, lively hangouts, dusk-til-dawn clubbing, a fine dining scene and plenty of ancient buildings. Heraklion’s charm concentrates on its Old Town and its Venetian harbour. You will discover the impressive church of Agios Titos, the square originally built by the Byzantine emperor Nicephorus Phocas in 961 or the armoury and city hall. The lively Morosini Square enjoys a Lions’ Head fountain. At the entrance of the harbour, the Koules Fortress stands proud gazing out to sea. It took its final form between 1523 -1540 and served as a prison during Ottoman rule. Across from the harbour, the Venetian shipyards make for a romantic backdrop. Many visitors enjoy walking along the city’s Venetian walls, pausing in small shady parks and admiring the work of the famous Venetian architect, Michele Sanmicheli, who designed the walls and bastions more than four hundred years ago. The Archaeological Museum of Heraklion is considered to be one of the most important museums in Europe. The pedestrianised Daedalus shopping street is full of designer stores, perfect for those with room in their suitcases!
The Palace of Knossos is a must-visit. According to legend, the foundations of the Bronze Age city were filled with an inescapable labyrinth that was guarded by a vicious minotaur. The master craftsman Daedalus built the labyrinth for the mythical King Minos. His son, Theseus, slew the minotaur and found his way out of the labyrinth with the help of Minos’ daughter, Ariadne, according to legend. The palace flourished during the Minoan period as the religious centre of Crete. Thanks to the archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans’ excavation and careful restoration, the Palace of Knossos are one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in Greece. Surrounding Heraklion and the villa, hiking trails cross impressive gorges, picturesque villages, and ancient sites and end in secluded coves. Gortyna or Gortys was an ancient city of Crete and was the capital during the Roman era. Nowadays, it is a beautiful archaeological site. According to the myth, Zeus took refuge there.
If you want to travel a little further, you can head west to the charming characterful town of Rethymno. Your drive will be rewarded by its history, its delicious local wine, its waterfront tavernas and its stunning beaches. In the old quarter, the buildings date back to the 16th century and its pretty, cobbled streets and stamp-sized piazzas are lined with restaurants and unique shops. The Venetian-styled harbour is beautiful and is overlooked by the castle. The nearby beach resorts of Bali, Agia Galini, Plakias and Adelianos Kampos are gorgeous. The historical monasteries of Preveli and Arkadi are very popular visits.
