Galaxy Villas is located at the foot of the mountain Harakas, in the beautiful quaint Cretan village of Koutouloufari, only 20 minutes away from the port of Heraklion, the capital city of Crete. It is an autonomous resort, overlooking the famous Hersonissos bay, with independent, fully-equipped villas built in typical local architecture and technique, scattered around informal, natural green gardens, olive trees, local plants and flowers. There is a fresh water swimming pool and a children’s pool as well as indoor and outdoor dining and bar area with marvelous serene views (and even a seasonal organic vegetable garden and picnic area where our guests can taste our own local produce).
