Extraordinary Swimming Pool

The Observatory of Eagles

Aetovigla means "The Observatory of the eagles". It disposes 6 detached and fully furnished cottages built according to the local architecture and with respect to the natural surroundings. These cottages, situated the eastern slopes of mountain Psiloritis (Idi) at a height of 800 metres, are located 25 kilometres west of Heraklion…



Location of Aetovigla is stunning, you have a full view of the Heraklion area and you can enjoy it straight from the pool! Apartments are very well appointed, we could have lunches and dinners for all six of us without a problem. Owners are most hospitable and responsive.


Lovely big properties, very clean and comfortable with everything you would need. Amazing reception when we arrived we were invited into an engagement party and fed like the guests!


The guest house is in a quiet location with a spectacular view, the facilities are very well maintained and the individual villas private. For an additional fee, the hosts serve a delicious breakfast by the pool and then a home cooked meal can be delivered to your villa every evening.


Amazing location.Away from the noise.Because there is no light pollution you can see the stars and the Milky Way.Amazing views both day and night.Eagles flying around.If you’re a photographer or just want an idyllic escape from the busy tourist parts of the island,do yourself a favor and book a villa.
