The villa is located on a private hill in Agia Pelagia, Heraklion, Crete Agia Pelagia is a beach resort, 20km west of Heraklion on the west side of a long peninsula famous for its almost always calm waters. A variety of small coves with blue green waters, either sandy or pebbled are excellent for swimming whilst above average restaurants, cafes, bars and water sports can fulfill any guest's requirements.
The main beach of the settlement is sandy, long and narrow and it is this one where hundreds of locals have fun daily in the beach bars and choose it for swimming.
This is also the beach where several ruins of the ancient port city Apollonia have been extracted. Walking along the cape of Souda (don't confuse it with Souda of Chania or Plakias) passing by the shrine, after a few steps you will be above the most beautifull beach of Agia Pelagia, Fylakes. Fylakes (prisons) are small bays with green waters sheltered by the tall rocks of Cape Souda. In order to access Fylakes you have to go down along the rocky coast that lead to the beach or swim or take a sea bicycle. We consider this small beach as one of the top 10 of North Crete, so sont miss it! Other nearby options we love include Psaromoura, Mononaftis, Mades, Lygaria, Paliokastro beach and others.
Other facilities in Agia Pelagia include supermarket, pharmacy, ATM, doctor's office, beach showers, local products markets, diving center, little boat excursions.
