Ano Chersonissos is a small picturesque village built on the hillside surrounding amphitheatrically Chersonissos beaches and located approximately 24 km east of Heraklion.
It is also known as Old Chersonissos, a name which stands out from the Port of Chersonissos, lwhich is flooded with tourists every summer.
Ano Chersonissos is one of the few villages that remain pure and unaffected by tourism development. It has a traditional Greek village square, easy to imagine if you close your eyes and rememberold old times. There is a fountain in the middle of the square with an assorted of local businesses: an embroidery shop, a bakery, a butcher and grocery store with all kinds of local produce, cafes that serve fresh coffees and traditional snacks, as well as tavernas with Cretan cuisine, fine wine and hospitality.
The traditional houses, with the beautiful flower names of Anthurium (Anthurio), Sunflower (Ilianthos), Iris (Irida), Lilium (Krinos) and Amaryllis (amaryllis) are built around a courtyard full of flowers in pots and flower beds, adding flavors and colors in space, with the main colors of the bougainvillea, the jasmine and the lemon tree.
The houses are restored with full respect for tradition and decorated with taste and love for all of our guests. Anthurium, Sunflower and Iris have their own corner of the courtyard, so that everyone has their privacy among the flowers. Inside the houses there are antiques and relics of the old era that came before us over generations and generations of our family and other Cretan families.
Lilium is different, escaping from the traditional style and based on a more modern touch so that within the house the prevailing is white color and stainless steel.
