Our Hotel in Agia Pelagia Heraklion Crete

NYMPHES is a luxury family hotel, situated 22km from the Heraklion airport, toward the center of Crete, 21km from Knossos’ Palace and 17km from the port to Santorini, Mykonos, Rhodes, Athens and all the beautiful Greek islands. It is the perfect point for using it as a jumping-off point from which to explore Crete and the other islands of Greece.

Nymphes Apartments offers the most beautiful accommodation with all the essential contemporary amenities (swimming pool, air-conditioning, central heating, ADSL, Wireless, Satellite TV), ideal for nature and adventure travelers. Hike the rolling hills of Crete, and see views that the less adventurous will miss.  Make your visit to Crete entirely your own.

At NYMPHES we practice nature conservation, and invite guests for whom a pristine wilderness represents the epitome of beauty.

The complex consists of 4 studios and 6 apartments, all situated in the front of the building, with spectacular views. Our guests love to watch the sun rise over the sea, and enjoy colorful sunsets.

Swimming Pool

The swimming pool, surrounded on its deck by chaise lounges and umbrellas, overlooking the Aegean Sea, offers refreshment and relaxation.
The kiosk is a beautiful outdoor space, which has as its backdrop the Aegean Sea and its boats and lights.

The main hall is a spacious and airy room, elegantly decorated, equipped with satellite television, central heating, a fireplace and its own bar. It may be used for dancing, parties and celebrations or for business conferences and seminars. It accommodates up to 50 people. We can help you to organize gatherings, and your guests may enjoy the adjoining swimming pool and seating areas.

Our beautiful gardens have an astonishing collection of local plants and herbs, which we cultivate with loving care.


The area thrives in thyme, oregano and other medicinal herbs and fragrant shrubs are grown throughout and around the grounds. We encourage our guests to use them as we do, for cooking or for making herbal teas. A favorite among guests, and admittedly ourselves, are the many varieties of grapes that are yours to pick at will and enjoy straight off the vine throughout the summer and early fall.

My family and I, who live at Nymphes, look forward to providing you with an unforgettable stay.
