Near and Far
The Country Hotel Velani is centrally located in the middle of Crete Island, 40km east of the city of Heraklion and at the foot of the Dikti Mountains.
Far enough inland to experience the real Greece, and meet the locals and their culture, and far enough to avoid the mass tourism.
Still close enough, however, to the coast area and an easy drive to the beach, shops and tourists facilities.
