Why Stefani Lasithiotaki chose Koutouloufari
The property is totally private and quiet located, perfect for families with children or couples who need a relaxing vacation. The house is stone built with an atmosphere of a small castle, a big spacious garden and lawn area around and of course with your own private pool (heated pool against extracharge of 70 Euro / day)and large sun terrace.
What makes this Villa unique
The fantastic panoramic sea view and the relaxed atmosphere will offer you a wonderful vacation time here on Crete. The beautiful Village Koutouloufari is easy to reach, where you can enjoy the typical cretan meals and for more activities you find the small City Hersonissos in 1 km distance. Koutouloufari is a village of roughly 600 inhabitants on the slope of Mt Pyrgias at an altitude of 100 metres. It is 29 kilometres east of Heraklion and less than 1,000 metres from coastal Hersonissos. Koutouloufari with its narrow paved streets and old Cretan houses attracts those who want to spend their holidays in the busiest tourist area in Crete - which stretches from Heraklion to Agios Nikolaos, offering many beaches, attractions, sights and activities and is near archaeological sites such as Knossos and Malia - but who prefer to stay in a quiet environment with a traditional flavour and a lovely view of the Sea of Crete. In Koutouloufari you will find old stone houses with arches,

Was everything and more!
You never know what you are actually renting until you get there and we were not disappointed. Beautiful villa that is gorgeously landscaped with lantanna, gardenias, honeysuckle and roses. The tile work is beautiful around the pool and porches, all it needs is a hammock. I would highly recommend this villa and highly recommend Stefani as a host! Can’t wait to go back!!
The property was beautifully landscaped, immaculately clean inside the house—with no allergy issues, and cozy for all. Stefani was quick to respond to questions and very kind to work with. Our family enjoyed our stay very much.
Lovely villa in great location
Lovely property, situated perfectly for both Koutouloufari and Hersonissos. Koutouloufari is a traditional charming village with amazing restaurants, and Hersonissos is bigger and more lively, the best of both worlds! You can walk to Koutouloufari easily from the villa, and you can also walk to the nearest part of Hersonissos. For the main strip in town it’s best to get a cab as although you could walk, it’s a little far in the heat.
We loved the pool terrace and garden area, and one section of the pool has a jacuzzi which was very nice. The villa is well equipped and has everything you could need. It was cleaned twice a week which we’ve not experienced before with other villa rentals.
Stefani was lovely and did everything she could to make us welcome and help us.
Only negative is there’s only 1 shower despite the 2 bathrooms, which for a family of 5 meant we had to take turns. But a small point overall.
a lovely time was had by all
villa was very clean and in a good location for shops and restaurants. Our grandson slept very well at night and was full of beans next day for new adventures. The pool was not very warm but we were in a few times, the beaches were more tempting at this time of year.
Stefani was very attentive and we were very grateful of the late checkout on last day as our flight home was 11.00pm
The villa itself was brilliant, but the location let it down.
The villa and the service from Stefani was brilliant. Very clean inside and out, all new and up to date appliances, good AC system.
Unfortunately for us, we were looking for somewhere very family friendly as we have a 2 year old. For us, the local town of Koutouloufari wasn't suitable as it seemed like the nearest 'fall out' town from Malia (i.e. extremely busy with your 18-30 type crowds). Therefore we had to drive out every night to places to go somewhere more suitable with a pushchair.
After 30 years of holidays I would say this is the best villa we have stayed in. Really tastefully decorated. Wonderful pool and garden. Great location - just a short walk from the village with its cobble stone streets and family run tavernas. One of the best holidays we have had.
Erato Villa is just 25 km from Heraklion, 2 km from the port of Hersonissos and only 700 m from the sandy beach of Hersonissos. Koutouloufari is a picturesque, traditional village which overlooks the Gulf of Hersonissos and Malia. The Villa is located at the edge of the village by the olive groves. You will be overwhelmed by the fantastic panoramic view.
All necessary goods and services can be found in the village, such as traditional coffee shops and very good taverns offering genuine Cretan food. For banks and an extensive choice of shops or restaurants, guests can simply walk or drive to the centre of Hersonissos. Please note that the famous water-park 'Star Beach' is located no more than 5 minutes away.
Hersonissos is located just 26km east of Heraklion and, nowadays, is considered to be the most developed tourist resort in Crete, due to the high range of quality services and attractions available. The sandy beaches, warm clear waters and guaranteed sunshine combine to draw thousands of visitors to Hersonissos every year.. It keeps the name of the ancient city that was located in the place where the harbour of Hersonissos is today.
Erato Villa is located in the nearby village of Koutouloufari, which has barely been touched by tourism. The narrow cobbled streets, whitewashed houses, window boxes overflowing with vibrant blossoms and the slow pace of life are a pleasant reminder of bygone days.
The natural routes in the municipality of Hersonissos also offer a journey through time, to the rich history of a blessed place. From its southern extremity until its northern border, the wider region of Hersonissos will reward visitors with beautiful images, forgotten flavours and traditional Cretan hospitality.
