A traditional house, it is located on a hill between the palace of Knossos and the town of Archanes, which is famous for its history. Only 7 km from Heraklion, it is an ideal place for couples and families.
Wine and olive oil lovers will find wineries, presses and mills nearby. It is a great starting point to explore the whole island.
Avghi Country House is a fully renovated property originally built in 1977 by Dimitri's father and named after his mother Avghi. It used to be a family vacation home. Since 2014, it has been the family home of Dimitris and Georia, who also live in the house above with a separate entrance.

The guest apartment is located on the ground floor of the property and consists of a fully equipped kitchen, a double bedroom and a spacious bathroom. The open kitchen / dining room and living room are cozy on the east side. The house is furnished with a mixture of modern and antique furniture in a soft and warm color palette to make the stay inside comfortable and relaxing. The stone floor and walls give a feeling of the old days and keep the house always cool in summer. No need for air conditioning.

The beautifully designed terracotta terrace provides stunning views of the surrounding hills, while the lower terrace has a secluded and private feel, both equipped with a small table and chairs to enjoy your cup of coffee or glass of wine.
On the stone terrace in front of the main door, there is a large wooden table suitable for family meals and stone benches for relaxing. All intended exclusively for our guests!

The owners live upstairs so they will always be there to help you with anything you might need.
Upon arrival, either they or we will welcome you and show you around the apartment.
Arriving late, hungry and too tired to shop? Do not worry. A package of local delicacies will welcome you so that you can prepare a quick light dinner and breakfast the next day. Parking is right next to the house. ​
