Location features

Local markets and shopping

The resort of Gouves has all the facilities which you would expect to find for everyday needs. For a wider selection then a trip to Heraklion is in order where you will find shops both small and large. There are some international chains such as Marks and Spencer, Zara, Gap, etc. On Saturday is the main local market which is large. Just about everything can be found here from local cheeses to linens, shoes to kitchen equipment as well as the freshest fruit and vegetables from local producers.

Bars and restaurants

There are many restaurants, tavernas, bars and cafes in Gouves. Some are on the beach road and some are more inland. Either way you'll find something to suit all taste. Otherwise venture into nearby Hersonissos for a wider selection, especially in the village, from a cool drink to a Greek Meze, there is something for everyone.


The nearest beach to Villa Lefkippos is a mixture of sand and shale and is very unspoilt. The beaches dotted along the beach road of Gouves vary from sandy to pebbly. Some having sunbeds and umbrellas for hire. If you go to Hersonissos or Stalis you will find many beaches that vary in size.

Family fun

Families generally have differing opinions about what they want to do but the great thing about Gouves is there's lots to do within a fairly short radius! Adrenaline junkies? There are 2 water parks close by. Horse riding? There is a stable with a taverna just outside Hersonissos which caters for all levels of experience. The Crete Aquarium is a 15 minute drive away and is run by the Marine Biology faculty of the University of Crete.

Places of interest

Crete has it all! Archaeology? Knossos, Phaistos, Malia - all Minoan Palaces of varying importance during the period when the island was inhabited between 3650 to 1400 BC . More recent history can be witnessed at Spinalonga. This is a very small island just a short boat ride from Plaka in the east and is worth a visit. The mountains should not be missed. Crete has a mountainous spine running along its length and the mountains of Lassithi close by also have a verdant plateau which is home to extraordinary numbers of birds of prey and also produce much of the vegetables you find in local shops.


The Crete Golf course is an 18-hole course and is located just outside Hersonissos thus making the villa an excellent choice for anyone wishing to play whilst here.


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.
