Helios is in a spectacular location. This location with three beautifully refurbished and modern furnished holiday homes, lies on top of a mountain (466 meters high). The view around is therefore breathtaking. You look out to sea, on the mountain Psyloritis and on the mountain range the Lefka Ori. It is an ideal place for nature lovers and peace seekers. The cottage is bright, spacious and modern. It has two terraces, at the front and the back. The cottage is very well equipped and in the kitchen everything is there to prepare a good meal.
The landlords find it important that their guests can come into contact with the real Cretan life. In the neighborhood are several small villages, where the inhabitants are still genuinely interested in you. They speak to you on the street, where you come from and sometimes they give a candy or roll in your hands on the road. The landlords let you experience the hospitality of the Cretans and show you the real authentic life of the Cretans. Rest and nature are key words that clearly indicate where you end up when you choose this holiday home.
Regular griffon vultures fly over the houses because they build their nests in the surrounding hills. For birdwatchers a true paradise with bee-eaters, eagles, hawks, eagles, the hops and many other birds. The starry sky is very special. Because there is no light pollution, you can observe thousands of stars with the naked eye. Sometimes it seems like you can touch the Milky Way. A very special place. A number of herds of sheep graze around this place. You can hear the calming jangling of their bubbles on a daily basis.
There is a beautiful communal swimming pool with an unobstructed view over a pristine landscape.
