Location description from owner

The Heraklion Prefecture region

A small guide on your access to the property:

The area is accessible only by car. (There is no public transport).

The distance from Heraklion to the property is about 70 km.

You will first go through 63 km (about 1 hour) of road made of asphalt. You will reach the Asterousia sierra in about 53km. You will arrive to Loukia village which is on the foot of the mountain.

You will then drive for about 8 km to Kapetaniana village. The road network is in good condition (the road is also made of asphalt) . There are plenty of curves climbing up the mountain but there are plenty of metal protective barriers through out the route. The average driving speed is about 30-40 km/h.

Heraklion

You will come across Kapetaniana village right on top of the mountain. That is where the dirt road starts. The next 3 km are fairly demanding. You will be driving on the top of the sierra. The road is wide enough, there are plenty of open-easy turns. The road is quite bumpy due to the peak of some stones that stick out of the ground.

The last 4 km are on a quite bumpy and curvy dirty road. You are going to drive down from the top of a mountain to the beach (you will have to move carefully with an average speed of 20-30km/hour). That's actually the most difficult part of the route.

I would strongly recommend on renting an 4X4 or an SUV but you can also access the property with a smaller vehicle (as long as you drive carefully the last 4 km of the route.

Most of the visitors drive to Ai-Giannis using small and low frame vehicles without experiencing any problem. A larger car can definitely make your trip more comfortable. It is more like placebo because in conclusion it is all about the driver’s experience.

I can send you a ton-page guide to your email. You can find plenty of photos and details about how to access the property.
