Despoina apartments is a family run hotel at Gouves, on Europe's southern island of Crete. The resort is just 15 kilometres from "Nikos Kazantzakis" airport and 20 kilometres from the historical centre of Heraclion. The hotel is situated 100m from the beach and near to lots of restaurants and bars. There are lots of places and archaeological sites around Despoina apartments. 20km to the east is the famous KNOSSOS palace and 7 km to the west is Hersonissos resort, known for its night life. Not far away about 3km is Creta Auarium one of the largest and most modern aquariums in Europe. The combination of the unique location, the relaxing atmosphere and our friendly and personalized service, have established our hotel as one of the most enjoyable holiday choices of Gouves.
