Villa Location
Villa Dominikos is in an ideal location with a beach just 5 minutes' walk from the house. The resort centre is around 5 minutes' drive away where you'll find a selection of shops and restaurants, whilst the popular resort of Hersonissos is a little further on. What's more Heraklion (the capital of Crete) is just a 30 minute drive away. Our Villas Lefkippos, Minos and Vincenzos are all neighbouring properties.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

There is a mini market less than 10 minutes' walk away from the villa, with more shops a short drive away in Gouves. Alternatively, you'll find larger supermarkets in either Hersonissos or Kokkini Hani. There is a market in Heraklion on a Saturday morning selling fruit, vegetables, cheese, yoghurt, flowers, plants - you name it the chances are you'll find it!

Bars and restaurants

There is a vast choice, you can either stay local and eat at one of the many tavernas in Gouves, or go to one of the villages above Hersonissos for a quiet meal. If you want a lively backdrop, head to the beach road in Hersonissos which has lots of bars in between restaurants offering both Greek and international cuisine. Alternatively, Heraklion is buzzing with fish tavernas overlooking the marina.


The nearest beach to the villa is a 5 minute walk and is shared by a 5 star hotel. Gouves has many small stretches of beach as do the nearby resorts of Anissaras and Hersonissos. Star Beach in Hersonissos is a small water park with free entrance and a small selection of rides. It has a beach below offering water sports and bungee jumping. Further along the coast is Stalis with its sandy beach - a popular choice for families.

Family fun

Not far from, Villa Minos is the Crete Aquarium, which is run by the Marine Biology Department of the university of Crete. Or, Water City is a short drive away in the village of Anopolis, offering a wide selection of rides.

Places of interest

The Lassithi Plateau attracts many visitors each year with its famous caves and verdant fields cultivating much of the produce which is exported around the world. Alternatively, a trip to Aghios Nikolaos is well worth it and then drive up to Elounda and Plaka. Or, why not take a boat across to Spinalonga? For those who like archaeology, there are many Minoan sites in Crete so take your pick depending how far you want to travel!


The Crete Golf Club is easily accessible from Villa Minos and is an 18-hole course which regularly hosts tournaments. Booking is advisable as it can get rather busy during the summer months.


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Horse Riding Karteros
Horse riding is available at the Riding Academy of Crete in Karteros in just over 14 miles from Hersonissos.
Labyrinth Park
As the name suggests this is a maze where the objective is to find the centre and the Minotaur, then find the escape route!! Its great fun for all the family and the route is changed regularly. It's a 3D maze with steps and bridges too just to make it more interesting! Along the way visitors will learn more about the myths and legends surrounding the famous Minotaur of Knossos.

There is also a mini golf and cafe, too for less energetic explorers. Children can also have a go in the pottery workshop where Minoan items are reproduced. An eco-garden with aromatic Cretan herbs, fruit trees and vegetable garden are all cultivated to ecological standards.

Has a large variety of slides, pools and of course a Lazy River for those who prefer a more sedate pace.
Scuba Diving
Registered Paddy scuba diving centres are available in many resorts offering diving in caves at night, wall diving, as well as deep diving. In-experienced divers can catered for at selected locations. A pick up service is available to the venue.

The Crete Golf Club
As Crete is a very mountainous island, there is just one 18 hole golf course in Hersonissos on the east of the island. It has a desert style layout and is very well maintained. It would take about an hour and a half to get to the golf course and all equipment can be hired on site.
