Kalimera Archanes Village

Theotokopoulou, Tsikritsi, Archanes, Crete, 70100, Greece

An especially appealing base for exploring Knossos and Heraklion is the well-kept wine village of Archanes, where three 19th-century stone houses tucked into a garden are fitted out with traditional furnishings and all the modern comforts. The two-story houses have one to three bedrooms, kitchens, fireplaces, and lots of beams and woodwork as well as appealing outdoor spaces. Just beyond the garden wall, the village itself is a delight, with a lively square and a good choice of restaurants and shops. A great alternative to basing yourself in Heraklion.

PROS

  • highly atmospheric and very comfortable
  • near many sights but provides a nice dose of Greek village life
  • beautiful interiors and outdoor spaces

CONS

  • beaches and Heraklion are a 15-minute drive away
  • a pool would be the icing on the cake
  • can be hard to find when you first approach
