Velani is a family-run business, not far from Kasteli airport, belonging to Sabine and Manolis, who together with their daughters Maria and Helena strive to provide guests a warm family atmosphere. It is situated at an altitude of 365 meters, overlooking the Lagada valley and the artificial lake of the Aposelemi River, with a panoramic view of the north side of the Mt. Dikti range and is surrounded by perennial oak trees. A retreat just 35 minutes from Heraklion and positioned at the center of Crete, it makes for easy exploration of much of the island.
Activities such as horse riding, paragliding, trekking, and cooking classes, give you ample reason for your stay at the guesthouse but the most important reason that so many guests return, is the Cretan cuisine, which enjoys a dominant place on the offerings of our restaurant, with most of the products created on-site.
