Panoramic views of Mourtzanakis ecotourism hotel in Crete Greece

Our Eco hotel is a sociable Eco-retreat of 4 independent villas and 3 cottages with a communal dining room and a swimming pool (one for adults and one for children), set in the mountains near Achlada rural, traditional Cretan village - dating back to the medieval era, but only 10 minutes from the beach of Agia Pelagia area (popular seaside holiday resort area on the island of Crete Greece).

The main appeal of Mourtzanakis Residence is its rustic setting. As you reconnect with the beauty and tranquility of nature, it is easy to detox from urban stress. And you don’t need to worry about being too isolated - Agia Pelagia beach is a 10-minute drive away, while Crete’s capital Heraklion lies 18km up the coast, making Achlada a good base for visiting attractions on Crete and an infinity of ecotourism activities offered on this great island of the Mediterranean Sea.

Ecotourism Activities, Tours & Experiences on Crete



Nearby beaches

  • Agia Pelagia beach

    Agia pelagia is a mostly sandy beach and a bustling seashore & village where you can have a marvelous swim at its tropical green waters, while admiring the natural Mediterranean beauty of the greater region. A cocktail would probably come out handy!

    Lygaria beach

    Lygaria beach is a quiet, but vivid coast, mostly rocky. It is a very convenient place to swim and have a lunch, drink some wine and Cretan raki with your desert and gaze at the natural beauty of the beach and the hills surrounding it

    Psaromoura beach

    Psaromoura is a bay next to Agia pelagia. Once again, the green waters & surroundings are idyllic. It has a small bar by the beach, where you can order some snacks or drinks and enjoy the vibes

  • Fodele beach

    Fodele is an idylic and large sandy beach. When in place, you no longer know if you’re in Crete or the north African shores. Its a wonderful coastline that seems mysterious, but feels like the authentic Crete

    Fylakes cove

    Fylakes beach (prasina nera) is something else! The most convenient way to reach it, is via a pedalo. It’s absolutely worth it. This small sandy cove reminds more of a Caribbean one. The water is perfectly green. The palm trees and pines next to it, makes it paradise on earth

    Tripiti beach

    Tripiti beach (rocky & sandy beach) is the most inaccessible of all beaches in the area of Agia Pelagia. To reach Tripiti beach, you must hike a bit. When swimming there you get an utter sense of freshness and relief. And a sense of freedom
