How to get there
Airport: Heraklion Airport: 65.0 km
Ferry: Heraklion Port: 65.0 km
Our village is 60 km away from Heraklion airport & it is not accessible with public transportation.
Local bus stops in a previous village (Pyrgos) 16 km away, so a car is necessary.
The route from Heraklion passes through three villages of Heraklion prefecture: Archanes-Charakas-Paranimfoi and ends to Treis Ekklisies village. The road is in a very good condition, suitable to be driven comfortably by a small conventional passenger car.
