Heliopetra studios


Home Description

Tucked away down a narrow lane at the edge of the attractive village of Douliana, this charming cluster of studios and apartments offers a combination of all the elements required for a relaxing holiday: a peaceful location overlooking beautiful countryside, with some excellent terrain for walking on your doorstep, but also easy access by car to fine sandy beaches, to traditional local villages such as Vamos, and a little further afield, to the Venetian harbour towns of Chania and Rethymnon. In recent years, Douliana has justifiably become a popular spot for holiday homes, but whilst there are now a number of new villas between Iliopetra and the village centre it still retains its authentic Cretan charm.

Iliopetra has been built in traditional style, with a liberal use of the local stone, and the interiors have all been furnished with a combination of tradition and modern comfort. Each of the five large studios and three maisonettes has air conditioning, kitchens with fridges, hobs and small ovens, as well as bathrooms with half-baths, shower attachments, stylish vanity units and full-length mirrors. The single-storey studios are large enough to sleep three in comfort with twin beds and a sofa bed, whilst the maisonettes will each sleep four with two sofa beds in the large downstairs living room and twin beds in the upstairs bedroom.

The balconies all have patio furniture and are an ideal spot for enjoying a leisurely breakfast or evening aperitif whilst gazing over the olive groves to the sea just a few of kilometres away or watching the local flocks of sheep return to their pens for the night.

Next door is a very good tavern offering local recipies, pizzas, etc.
