Wohnung nur für dich allein.
The house is nestled between vineyards on one side and olive trees in the other. It has two apartments, each with private entrance. I am renting the ground floor apartment which is also the biggest one. I live in the other one during the winter and only occasionally in the summer. Four people can sleep in the apartment, two in their own room and two on the pull-out sofa in the living room.
You can enjoy the best view of the village, the Lassithi mountains and the magic sunrise.

Die Unterkunft
I’d like to welcome you to my own little secret paradise in the quaint Cretan village of Katalagari. Located in the middle of the region known as “Wine Roads of Heraklion”. There are magnificent views of the sunrise over the Lassithi Mountains from the 20m2 courtyard.

Next door is the traditional tavern of Chrysanthi and Kostas. They are friends of mine, the prices are great at the welcome unforgettable. See their restaurant at "Yotam Ottolengui visits Crete" from minute 24 to 29. There you will be able to enjoy the same view of the house! You can use the WIFI connection in the house and at the restaurant.

Free pick up from the airport! : the housekeeper, a friend of mine, will meet you at the airport and drive back with you to the house (everyone in their own car) and once there, he will help you settle in and will make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible, providing you with any and all info you need about the house or the island. Katalagari is 17km from the airport and the same distance to the capital Heraklion, accessible in 15 minutes by car thanks to a newly built road.

There are several pathways to the vineyards and olive trees with fantastic sea and mountain views. While strolling, you may see the endangered Bearded Vulture among many other birds. The town Katalagari has got everything to assure you a traditional Cretan experience: a typical Greek cafe in front of the church square, the welcoming taverna next door, one grocery store and friendly locals.

20 to 30 minutes from Katalagari, we come to the long sandy beaches of the northern part of the island, including Karteros, Vatheianos Kampos and Kokkini Hani. More wild beaches are to be founded in the south, such as Dyskos, Agios Pavlos and Ligres (each of these beaches has a nudist part), although there are also beaches perfect for families, such as Tsoutsouras. These southern beaches are the ones I like most, especially those that are only accessible by dirt roads or by hiking along canyons. This is where you’ll find pebble beaches, deeper sea and calm, crystal-clear waters. Most of these more deserted southern beaches don’t offer organized facilities to tourists, although some of the ones which are closer to towns or other points of interest do.

Heading back towards Katalagari, just three kilometers from town we find the oldest village in Crete, Archanes (which, quite appropriately, means “ancient”). Archanes is an award-winning town, second-best restored village in Europe and number one in terms of long-term development prospects. The streets have been repaved with cobblestones and the village’s yards, terraces and balconies overflow with plants, blooming flowers and fruit trees. It’s the ideal spot to wander around in quiet back streets. Archanes was an important regional center in Minoan times, as evidence by the ancient roads discovered there that lead to the Minoan sanctuary at Mount Jouchtas and to Vathipetro, containing some of the oldest wine presses in the world. See also: the E4 hiking path (goes through Archanes). The famous Minoan ruins of Knossos are also nearby.

Zugang für Gäste
Comments of the guests: Katalagari is a quiet village, with a wonderful tavern (located next door to the apartment), a mini market and a gas station within a couple of kilometres. In the apartment, you can enjoy the best sunrise view from the back terrace over the Lassithi mountains.

After travelling around the world I decided to settle down in my home town while keeping my home on Crete as well, where I have my most beloved friends. I chose this place to be away from the tourist areas but not too far from the best beaches and traditional little towns. My job gives me free time during the winter which I spend mostly in Katalagari, although I still like travelling to other places: my last trip was to Brasil. One of my best friends in the island will meet you at the airport, like that I am helping him in this difficult moments the country is going through. He is the one in charge!

I like to communicate with my guests to ensure that you'll get all the information you need before the arrival. After that, I make sure that everything goes as planned, with the help of my friend Giorgos, who is the one in charge of the house and will meet you either at the village or at the airport.
