This two-storey, quaint and very functional house in the center of the traditional village of Avdou is the perfect getaway for a real Cretan experience. It can sleep five people: there is a single bed on the ground floor along with a WC, a large double bed on the first floor with en suite bathroom, and another double bed on the open-plan second floor.


The village itself is delightful, with small, renovated homes retaining the traditional style, cobblestone streets with signs commemorating out the history of each shop and an idyllic little square complete with a huge, shady plane tree. The people are super-friendly and, in the summer, the village can be quite lively. It’s located near the Lasithi mountain plateau, next to the Aposelemi Dam Lake, a 40-minute drive from the main city of Heraklion.
To get there, you take the highway from Heraklion towards Agios Nikolaos. After 20 minutes (about 20 km), at the large junction, turn right toward Kastelli (You’ll see a yellow road sign) and then again right toward Lasithi Mountain Plateau. After 3 km you 'will see a junction, you continue left toward Lasithi Mountain Plateau (not toward Kasteli). Continue along the winding mountain road toward Lasithi Mountain Plateau and you will pass the lake on your left hand. Continue and you will find Avdou. On the right hand you will see a very big church. Opposite the church there is a street who leads (after 50 meters) to the center of the village, you see there a huge plane tree and on the left hand a Supermarket, you go right and, after 50 meters, you see the house...
There are a variety of activities you can do here: hang-gliding from Mount Louloudaki, horse-riding at the nearby Odysseia Stables, hiking in the Rosa Gorge or around Aposelemi Lake. A visit to the impressive Agia Fotini Cave is a must, where you will be awed by the stalagmites and stalactites in the last room of the cave, which has been converted into a shrine to Saint Fotini.
Delicious Cretan food at very reasonable prices can be had at Avdou’s tavernas, but also in the neighboring villages of Gonies, Potamies and Askoi. In the summer, the local cultural society organizes a wide range of events—concerts, dance performances and theatrical plays—in a spacious venue on the edge of the village.
The fantastic Aquasplash water park is a short drive and the beautiful beaches of Hersonissos and Malia are 14 kilometers away.

Elena a décoré avec beaucoup de goût cette petite maison très ancienne et typique en plein coeur du village d'Avdou. Rien ne manque, et le logement est impeccable. Ici on vit au milieu des habitants du village, qui sont tous très courtois et ne manquent jamais de répondre à nos salutations, en grec bien sûr ! kalimera ou yassas. La disponibilité, et les explications de Elena et son mari Nikos pour répondre à toutes nos questions ont été formidables. Nous sommes des habitués de cette région de la Crête et avons une nouvelle fois passé un superbe séjour. Merci de tout coeur. efkharisto poli.

We stayed in Elena's more than lovely stone house in Avdou with three persons (couple and a 4 year old child). The home is very tastefully decorated and has everything you need for a nice stay. This place is great if you want to be surrounded by locals. We loved to watch the old people walking down the streets from our little balcony and loved how they gathered every night, sitting together on the bench near the water well. Avdou is very authentic, simple, sober and the people who live there are nice, friendly and calm. It's worlds apart from the more touristic Chersonissos and Malia for example. You really need a car to see the area and to go to any beach you have to drive at least 30 minutes. No problem, but something to keep in mind. We really loved our stay in Avdou and can recommend it to anyone to visit this beautiful part of Crete and especially to stay in Elena's little fairytale house.

Das Haus ist sehenswert...ein echtes Raumwunder. Im Dorfladen "gleich nebenan" gibt es selbstgemachten Käse und Oliven und der Ort ist idealer Ausgangspunkt für Wanderungen oder Ausflüge in die Umgebung.

Small house but cosy and clean. Owners are good people. In the night we had some problems with the noise but otherwise it is ok if you are used with small plsces.

Tanggapan dari Elena:
As we mentioned, it is a small, typical cretan village house wholy renovated with characteristical architectural details. Throughout the year it is totally quiet. Between 1-17 August there are everywhere in Crete, as in the rest of Greece, a lot of cultural events and concerts, so it can be noisy, as the house lies in the middle of the village. On the other hand one can have at this time an authentic cretan experience.

Elena's place is a truly wonderful cretan village experience. You are made to feel so welcome ( Elena bought us food and invited us to join her family and friends) and the home is so beautiful, with unique details (by Elena herself) that give it the wow factor. Elena and Nikos are fabulous hosts and cant do enough for you, to which we are very thankful for. I would highly recommend if you have a car.
