The nearest beach, Anissaras, is a long coast of almost 5km of various sandy beaches. The coast offers various options for all needs, so you just need to find the one that suits you; you can find yourself at a more remote part of the beach, or a more organized one, with umbrellas and lounges, shops and water sports. There are also some parts of the sea that are ideal for fishing and scuba diving. You can walk along the coast and find the beach that suits you the best. On the base of the Cape Sarandaris, you'll find the amazing beach of Sarandaris Cape, maybe the nicest and mostly protected (from winds) beach in Hersonissos area. It is a sandy beach with shallow water and vivid blue colors. Golden Beach & Limanakia, a collection of tiny, sandy beaches with crystal clear waters are also great options for those who like snorkeling or simply swimming along the rocks. Malia beach, one of the most frequented and popular beaches, offers a variety of services from seaside bars to water sports, beach volley, scuba diving, jet skiing, parasailing and even massage.


The location of Pandora’s Exclusive Villas is ideal for those who wish to explore Crete as the area provides easy access to both south, west and middle of the island and enjoy a variety of activities. Scattered between mountains and the Cretan sea, Piskopiano gives visitors an authentic sense of Cretan living. Wander around the narrow streets with lovely cobblestone paths, smell the flowers which lie from old houses yards and let your senses being indulged by a place which has maintained a peaceful and authentic Cretan character. Sit outside on the starry night and enjoy the panoramic view from your Villas balcony or enjoy a drink in one of the village’s cafes and pubs. You can also savor quality Cretan dishes in the charming restaurants and taverns, made with local products, such as olive oil, season’s vegetables and fresh fish. The shops of the village offer a wide variety of goods and gifts, many of local production, such as olive oil, herbs, handmade ornaments and jewels and traditionally woven textiles. The traditional Cretan Villages of Koutouloufari and Old Hersonissos where you can enjoy a nice walk or taste traditional drinks and homemade sweets are within walking distance. The Museum of rural life at Piskopiano definitely worths a visit. Housed in the village’s old olive-oil mill you can gain an understanding of daily life and occupations of the Cretan farmer before the introduction of modern technology. Piskopiano is also just 8 kilometres from the archaeological site at Malia, which includes the Μinoan Palace of Malia. The Hersonissos area also has other cultural sites to offer, such as the Open-air Museum Lychnostatis where the visitor can admire exhibits from the Cretan folk cultural heritage; CretAquarium, a unique venue for discovering, learning and promoting awareness of Mediterranean marine life and The Dikteon Andron Cave, one of the most important and famous caves in Crete and in Greece where according to the legend, Zeus was born! If you prefer something more busy and cosmopolitan, go down to coastal Hersonissos, the queen of Cretan nightlife. But Crete is full of attractions and things to see and don’t forget that the renown Minoan palace of Κnossos, is only 25 kilometres from Piskopiano. In the city of Heraklion, there are many other attractions to see such as the Archaeological and The Historical Museums, the Town Hall, The old Venetian Port and Castle Koules. If you are looking for a more active entertainment Aqua Park Water City, the best amusement park of the island where you can enjoy the thrilling games and rides is only a few kilometers away. The Crete Golf Club, a championship course, the only 18-hole golf course on the island of Crete and one of the most impressive courses of the Mediterranean, holds a unique challenge and a pleasant experience for both golf players and visitors. Our villas are also within easy reach from Agios Nikolaos and Elounda, renowned cosmopolitan resorts that attract many tourists all year round. The small island of Spinalonga, which served as a fort in the Venetian Era and as a leper colony in the first half of the 20th century, definitely worth’s a visit.

Unbelievable August Family Holiday Anapavseos, 700 14, Πισκοπιανό, Griechenland
11. Aug. 2016
Hilfreiche Bewertungen: 1/0
We stayed at Pandora villas in mid-August for 10 days and had the most amazing time. The villa itself is superbly appointed both inside and out, clean and very welcoming - it really did feel like a home from home. Far and away the best villa we have stayed in. Location-wise it is situated between two small towns which are only a 15 minute walk away (Chersonisos and Piskopiano). Both having wonderful tavernas to eat in as well as the usual accompaniment of shops. Chersonisou a larger more touristy town is a half hour walk downhill has some great restaurants and beaches. With the included car it is a breeze to get to and there are plenty of taxis to get you back in the evening. I really must give special mention to our host Gaby, she immediately made us feel very welcome and bent over backwards to ensure we had the perfect holiday. The welcome pack that she laid on was breathtaking - a fully stocked fridge met us on arrival along with a home cooked mousaka in the oven and lobster in the fridge. There were even two large bowls of sweets for the children. In short I cannot recommend Pandora Villas highly enough - superb location, amazingly maintained and with a host who is unbelieveably helpful and generous. You DO need to stay here....honest!

Liebe Gaby,

wir danken dir für einen traumhaften Urlaub, bei dem es an nichts gefehlt hat. Über den persönlichen und regelrecht familiären Empfang am Flughafen zu den individuell bereit gestellten Dingen des Alltags, nach denen wir gefragt hatten, bis hin zu einer unglaublichen Spielzeugauswahl für unsere Tochter - es gab nichts, das es nicht gab. Wir fühlten uns wie daheim bei lieben alten Freunden, völlig natürlich ohne jede Aufdringlichkeit.

Das Haus ist wunderbar gepflegt, gleiches gilt für den herrlichen Garten und den Pool.

Wir kommen wieder und freuen uns, dich und dein Team kennengelernt zu haben.

Vielen Dank!

Vivien & Sebastian mit Collien und Angi und René aus Deutschland

Wir haben 7 Tage in der wunderhuebschen Villa verbracht. Bei der Abreise mussten wir weinen - wir wollten "unsere"Villa nicht verlassen- es war wunderschoen . Wir kommen im September wieder. Das Haus und der Garten sind einfach toll man fuehlt sich wie Zuhause und wird von den Eigentuemern herzlich und gut betreut ! Petra S.aus Wiesbaden Pandora Villas 13.05.2014

We loved Pandora Villa and had a wonderful relaxing and luxurious holiday. The villa is beautifully maintained and tastefully furnished, as are the gardens and private pool.
Villages, Tavernas, Golf, Beach etc., are all within easy reach, but the villa is secluded enough to guarantee peace and tranquility.

A lovely Villa in a beautiful position, fully equipped beyond expectations.”
5 of 5 starsReviewed September 18, 2013 for a stay in September 2013
This Villa is positioned with a sea view to the front and a mountain that is floodlit at night to the rear, myself and my family found this beautiful. The Villa was equipped well beyond our expectation with far to many extra,s to list, wine,fresh fruit,many food items,fully equipped kitchen and barbecue, bathroom hygiene products. The Vlila has every mod com and is tastefully furnished, a beautiful well established lovely garden area with a lovely pool.Nearby five minutes walk up the hill is the delightfull village of Old Hersonissos a real taste of Cretan life, within twenty minutes are two more villages well worth a visit. There is a lively area near the seafront about tweny minutes walk, this is Hersonissos. The Villa owner Gaby and husband could not be more helpful picking us up and dropping us off at the Airportport giving every support.This without doubt is the best holiday myself and my family have experienced. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pandora Villa to anyone. Regards Ian Tuffin.
