Designed by Charmes & Co
A 1950s Apartment located in a building which used to be our grandparents' residency. Radically renovated in order to provide the contemporary comforts demanded by the current way of life for its owners and guests while retaining its unique character.

The space

The design of the apartment benefitting from the apartment's height, is focused on a unified, communal space that is directly accessible from the entry hall. Thus, the main sitting area and the dining area are laid out in open plan. In line with the entry hall, a bright white -floor to ceiling bookcase leads to the master bedroom and the bathroom.
The essence of the famous greek marble “Pentelikon” on the staircase leads to the first level, harmoniously combined with the neutral chromatic tones of other materials, completing the apartment's unique personality.
The apartment's composition of colours and furniture is radically opposed to the usual decor of Cretan residences.
The dominating dark grey fire place made of obsidian stone and the persian carpet in the sitting area are successfully combined with the marvellous floor made of mosaic.
The custom designed parquet floor offers an extra touch of warmth and luxury in the bedrooms while the full height mirror in the master bedroom reflects natural light. The dining area is enhanced by the uniqueness of the old dining table made of solid rosewood. The laundry room's roof is made of glass, designed as a source of illumination for the kitchen area and an opening to the blue sky or moon during the night.

Emmanuelle is a wonderful host and the apartment is really awesome!!! Great location, super clean, newly refurbished, beautiful pieces of furniture and appliances, value for money!! My communication with Emmanuelle was exceptional and what I really appreciated is the fact that she made me feel super comfortable being her guest, taking care of every detail, being remarkably aware of each and every need I had. I just stayed for one night and I would definitely go back to spend more time!!!

We had a nice stay here. The apartment is very spacious and has a well stocked kitchen with two furnished bedrooms. It’s located close to the central areas, with about a 20 min walk to the central square, and only about 15 min to the port. We got in late the first night and were still able to grab some gyros from a nearby mom and pop shop that night so it’s close to convenience stores. The beds were true European style (i.e. on the firmer side), but the apartment had everything we needed. When you open the main door on the first floor, the stairs take you straight into the apartment without having another door to open so it’s an airy open concept type of apartment. We really enjoyed that it was nestled in a side street and felt like we got a more traditional Heraklion experience!

This beautiful apartment is located slightly out of the town centre. It is an easy walk to the Centre, to the bus and sea port. It has a lot of information on hand in brochures and maps for you to reference. This home has the mod cons. It is quiet and very comfortable. It is just around the corner from a well stocked supermarket, local butcher and fruit and veggie shops if you wish to cook for yourself. We stayed for 7 days and used it as out base for travelling across Crete. We loved staying here.

We LOVED staying in Emmanuelle's apartment! I only wish we had more than one night there. It was spacious, clean, well-located and even had a super cool fireplace. Also, Emmanuelle was so easy to communicate with and incredibly nice!! We would definitely stay there again should we ever go back to Heraklion.

Emmanuelle User ProfileEmmanuelle is a superhost.

I am an Actress, Producer and Entrepreneur in the UK, Greece and Cyprus. I come from a family of Architects, Artists and Business people. I adore Fashion and Interior Design. I love trevelling and exploring people and several cultures. Elegance is my major feature(they say) Luxury to me, in a non-materialistic sense, it means spending time with family and friends. Eating delicious food and drinking great wine all together. In a materialistic sense it means comfort & effortlessness.
A balanced whole.
I've been an Airbnb host for the past 2 years. I really enjoy hosting as I make new friends. And they are all precious!!!
I like to treat people the way I'd like to be treated.
Authenticity is what I am looking for in life.
I became an actress coz I love people. I love to observe their personalities and I always learn from each and every person I meet.
