Location description from owner
The Heraklion Prefecture region
Crete is one of the 13 regions into which Greece is divided. It forms the largest island in Greece and the second largest in the East Mediterranean, with a population of 650,000 (2005). The island has an elongated shape : it spans 260 km from east to west and 60 km at its widest, although the island is narrower at certain points, such as in the region close to Ierapetra , where it reaches a width of only 12 km. Crete covers an area of 8,336 km², with a coastline of 1046 km ; to the north it broaches the Sea of Crete (Greek: ??????? ???????) ; to the south the Libyan Sea ; in the west the Myrtoan Sea, and toward the east the Karpathion Sea. It lies approximately 160 km south of the Greek mainland.
Crete is extremely mountainous, and its character is defined by a high mountain range crossing from West to East, formed by three different groups of mountains. These are:
The White Mountains or Lefka Ori (2,452 m)
The Idi range (Psiloritis (35.18° N 24.82° E) 2,456 m)
The Dikti mountains (2,148 m)
Kedros (1,777 m)
Thripti (1,489 m)
The island of Crete is a periphery of Greece, consisting of four prefectures (Greek: ?????):
Chania - Heraklion -Rethymnon - Lassithi
Old Hersonissos is located 2km away from the coastal town of Hersonissos. It is a small village that impresses the visitor due to the careful maintenance of local colors and traditions; opposite from the coastal part, it is not popular among the youngsters, because the rhythms of life and the entire atmosphere here is more traditional and somewhat reminiscent of older times.
Founded in the 5th century AD, since the locals wanted to protect themselves from pirates and other sea related dangers and threats. Hersonissos was flourishing until the 50s, when Crete became a popular tourist destination both for Greeks and foreigners. Then, Hersonissos, the coastal harbor became the epicenter of tourist and commercial interest. The two places are vastly different; Hersonissos is bustling and wild, while Old Hersonissos still follows the same quiet and calming pace of the older times.
Old Hersonissos does not have clubs and bars; there are some local taverns and stores with traditional products. It retains its traditional architecture and boasts the small and narrow alleys – the trademark of island architecture in Greece – wells and wood burning ovens, only 5 minutes walk from your Villa take some time to enjoy a glass of raki in one of the café – taverns and grasp the feeling of old Crete.
Piskopiano is a nearby village of 450 residents, almost intertwined with Koutouloufari located at the feet of Pyrgia Heights. Piskopiano was mentioned in books for the first time in 1379 as part of the Great Episcope of Hersonissos.
It is one of the surrounding villages that also features lovely cobblestone paths and narrow alleys, traditional houses with little pots with flowers on their windows, a place reflecting the traditions and beauties of old Crete, ideal for those who are not that much into the bustling nightlife of Hersonissos.
Piskopiano features an Agricultural Museum, where visitors can admire a nicely appointed collection of traditional items and products.

- Very Good
This villa was the best villa we have stayed in. The pool was a very good size, and we had many hours of fun. The outside space and the villa looks just like the pictures you see on the internet. Gaby was a wonderful host and met our every need and request. We really did not want to leave and will most definitely return. You really do need a cab to the beaches as it is a long walk, but well worth the visit to the restaurants and the beaches. Especially Star beach and Stalis Beach. Both very suitable for all ages. We had many fantastic meals in Crete both on the beachfront and in the villages near to the villa. We recommend eating at Old Hersonissos , which you can walk to. Taxis are cheap. But it is worth the extra cost of occasionally paying for a cab as the position of the villas and the lovely scenery around them was worth it.
“Lovely place, marvelous villa, excellent hosts”
Pandora Villas was best holiday experience we have ever had in our live. We travel a lot and have met a lot of people and places, but this experience was way beyond our expectations. The hosts are very hospitable, the villa was super clean and fully equipped! The swimming pool was cleaned every morning. It is a beautiful place to stay. We hope to go back and visit Pandora Villas very soon. We recommend Pandora Villas to everybody. It is a great place to recharge you battery, relax and have fun with your family and friends in the swimming pool.
“A lovely Villa in a beautiful position, fully equipped beyond expectations.”
This Villa is positioned with a sea view to the front and a mountain that is floodlit at night to the rear, myself and my family found this beautiful. The Villa was equipped well beyond our expectation with far to many extra,s to list, wine,fresh fruit,many food items,fully equipped kitchen and barbecue, bathroom hygiene products. The Vlila has every mod com and is tastefully furnished, a beautiful well established lovely garden area with a lovely pool.Nearby five minutes walk up the hill is the delightfull village of Old Hersonissos a real taste of Cretan life, within twenty minutes are two more villages well worth a visit. There is a lively area near the seafront about tweny minutes walk, this is Hersonissos. The Villa owner Gaby and husband could not be more helpful picking us up and dropping us off at the Airportport giving every support.This without doubt is the best holiday myself and my family have experienced. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pandora Villa to anyone. Regards Ian Tuffin.
The villa itself and especially the service we experienced surpassed all our expectations. Thanks to Gabriele, the kind and very attentive hostess, we had everything we needed even before we started to think about it. :) I will certainly recommend Pandora to all my friends.
“A dream holiday in Pandora Villa”
We loved Pandora Villa and had a wonderful relaxing and luxurious holiday. The villa is beautifully maintained and tastefully furnished, as are the gardens and private pool. Villages, Tavernas, Golf, Beach etc., are all within easy reach, but the villa is secluded enough to guarantee peace and tranquility.
“Traumurlaub im Februar auf Kreta”
Es stimmte einfach Alles, die Besitzer haben sich rührend um uns gekümmert. Die Einrichtung ist so schön dass ich am liebsten dort bleiben wollte. Ich werde alles tun um so schnell wie möglich dorthin zurückzukehren – ich denke das sagt Alles! Prima ! Vielen Dank
