I am still dreaming of this wonderful panoramic view, that combined mountainous areas and the view of the sea with such a taste... and all these while swimming in the beautiful swimming pool located at the edge of Aetovigla's hillside! The apartments are very comfortable and clean; moreover, they mix the tradition of Crete with a modern Greek touch! Finally, Krousonas is close to Heraklion and the road was renovated this year, facilitating all the transportations! My friends and I had an amazing time and we hope we will be back soon!

For the last two weeks of October 2012 Aetovigla was our home base. Not far from the airport at Heraklion, beautifully situated in the mountains above a little village, Krousonas. Aetovigla means 'eagle's view' and there are some wonderful views of the countryside if you're sitting on your outdoor terrace enjoying a coffee or a glass of nice local wine. In the mornings and evenings small herds of sheep and goats, some with bells, roam the mountains: if you don't spot them at once, the tinkling noises tell you where to look. The houses of Aetovigla, six in all, are furnished with great care and taste and they are very comfortable. The owners of this lovely place, Helena and Babbis, are absolutely friendly and hospitable and also very helpful with directions. The swimming pool is perfect! If you want to eat out there is the taverna a little below, presided over by Helena and Babbis, and both the cooking and the view are marvellous. But if you want to go shopping for food there is Krosounas just a few miles below, with mini markets staffed with kind ladies in the central square (also look out for Helena's delicatessen!). So it's an perfect place if you want a home away from home and relax, but if you want to explore the beautiful archeological sites of Crete, you are also ideally placed. I'm telling my friends about this place and we are certainly going back!

We were looking for something different and this is on Crete's highest mountain... its almost at the top....and its an amazing and slightly challenging drive to get to it. The views are huge and stunning, The road to it is like something from a Bond movie... winding, climbing all the way, thru a little village... really a great experince getting there....The villas are all new and well appointed. The only sound you get are the mountain goats walking along the road. We didn't want to stay in Heraklion because we heard it was boring... and it is... this is about a 45 minute drive from the ferry terminal in Herklion and driving on Crete is a breeze. We were the only guests... and we were treated exceptionally well. The husband and wife team made us dinner and breakfast and served us like royalty in the dining room (which also has great views) The pool is beautiful, the grounds well maintained and rustic... a very charming place and a real secret... i would highly recommend this accomodation

Room Tip: All the villas are great.... i would suggest you need a GPS to find the place.... and make sure the GPS program is in English.... a mistake we made Take your own snack food as you are a long way from anywhere here. But its worth it!
