Fodhele, Crete
Set in the heart of a traditional Greek village beside a leafy park with a picturesque river and surrounded by orange groves. It is secluded yet close to (50m) a selection of excellent tavernas and small shops with very friendly local people. It is the ideal location for relaxing or for exploring the island. A beautiful beach nearby and wonderful views of the mountains complete the idyll.

We are an English couple who live here all year round and we will be delighted to help you enjoy your holiday to the full. Tell us what you want--walking, bird watching, eating and drinking, golf, sightseeing, boat trips, watersports or just plain 'chilling out'!

Wasnt sure what to expect when we booked this last minute break as I dont think either the apartment or the village sell themslves to the extent that they could. Both were excellent. The apartment is situated overlooking stunning views with lemon groves immediately outside but looking up to hills all around. The small balcony allows for outdoor living. From...

We arrived after 12am but were warmly welcomed by our fantastic hosts Ken and Helen at the local tavern and shared some of the delicious local wine. They gave us advice and an insight into the local area and told us how to make the most of our weeks stay. Before our arrival, Ken had asked us if we wanted...

A fantastic break in Fodele in September 2012. The apartments are just what you would hope for - clean, well maintained, good swimming pool, nice neighbours. It was also exceptionally good value. Fodele itself is a lovely village, with a good choice of tavernas. The beach is 1.5 miles walk down the road - easy if you have a car,...

About the neighbourhood
FODELE VILLAGE is an important stop on the culture trail as it has several points of interest. Firstly, it is known as the birthplace of El Greco- Domenicos Theotokopolis. (b. 1541) When he went to Spain in 1567 they could not pronounce his name, hence 'El Greco' (The Greek). There is a small museum here containing well executed illuminated copies of his paintings, (obviously no originals as they are all in major museums across the world!). Interestingly, there are also photographs of his descendents, still living here today. It is about 800 metres from the centre of Fodele – cross over the river by the kiosk and head towards the sea. Open from 9.00 until about 19.00 (except Mondays) during the season. Opposite the museum is the beautiful Byzantine Church of the Panagia (All Saints... more
