We are George and Alexandra and Gouves Garden is our creation. We have lovingly made 3 totally new apartments and surroundings to offer you a true escape from the frenzy rhythm of everyday life.

Gouves Garden Apts was originally an olive grove that from the time of my grandfather until today gives quality olive oil as well as various vegetables to meet the nutritional needs of our family. Over time, we fenced off the area and built a house that was my parents’ permanent home for 10 years.

Friends from all over Europe who stayed at our house were thrilled by the rest due to the quality of sleep, the tranquility, the positive energy of the space. That gave me the idea to turn the family property into a vacation place.

Since 2018 it has been the ideal place for mental uplift and escape from the city of Heraklion for me and my wife Alexandra, who is originally from Serbia and engaged in decoration, the Feng Shui (positive energy) of the space

We spent a lot of time with personal work, care and love, using high quality materials and constructions and gradually shaped the interior and exterior in a luxurious accommodation with garden, swimming pool and a basic crossfit gym.

So, from the summer of 2022, the reconstruction of the GouvesGarden Apts has been completed and it is now ready to accommodate even the most demanding customer who wants to be close to all the facilities (shopping, beach, entertainment) but at the same time isolated from the outside world with only the natural sounds of birds and the rustling of trees.

In the center of Crete, only 2 minutes away from the highway , and approximately 1 km in a straight line from the sea, lay Gouves Garden Apts. The 3 brand new apartments are built in a private garden surrounded by colourful flowers and aromas of the area. Their names are inspired by the garden trees that spread endlessly in front of the apartments and offer a relaxing walk in nature. They are made to offer privacy, for a relaxing and luxurious holiday, as well as easy access to the sights and beautiful beaches of the island. The whole garden is beautifully lit during the night and we have taken all necessary steps to ensure your safety. A visit to our apartments is enough to convince you that we offer everything you require for your holidays and more.

Our Apartments are close to the seaside Village of Kato Gouves. Located just 300 meters (private unpaved road) from the highway that crosses the island from one to the other side, making your transportation to any part of the island very easy. In 20 minutes, you can visit the ancient city of Knossos, Heraklion city and its rich of exhibits archeological museum, the largest Mediterranean marine life aquarium “Creta aquarium thalassokosmos”, the city of Hersonissos with its crazy nightlife, the wonderfull water parks as well as many excellent sights and unique attractions.
