The Blossom-Premium Living Residence in Heraklion
When looking for a place to stay in a city such as Heraklion, big, super busy, and quite chaotic, especially in summer, you will certainly look for a relaxing space, that’s close to the center of town, enough to walk there but without being surrounded by noise at all hours.
Especially if you’re staying in town for more than a couple of nights, and you’re interested in taking long day trips around the region, always coming back to base, and base being cozy, comfy, and welcoming… well, there’s such a place and this time it’s not a hotel, but a vacation apartment.
The Blossom Premium Living Experience
This amazing apartment has been completely renewed a very short time ago. Honestly, it’s so impeccable that we felt we were the first guests to set foot in the residence (which is not like that, because they’ve already collected top reviews!).
All the spaces are very well-thought and very comfortable, the kid’s room, for instance, would look small at a first sight, instead, it has all the right corners for kids to enjoy their stay, including a small book collection, and kid-sized bathrobes.
The mattresses are extra comfortable too, while the wardrobes are very spacious.
Our en-suite room was dreamy, not just because it was equipped with a convenient, well-lit, and ready-to-use workstation, with an ample desk and a printer, but also because the bed was simply heaven!
There are two bathrooms, both big, and very modern, with walk-in showers. Besides, all spaces have air conditioning and heating (we visited on an odd snowy day in winter, and did not feel cold any time).
The seating room features a big smart tv with Netflix, perfect for our snowy stay, there are table games to entertain you, and there is also a terrific balcony, with a wooden deck, three different seating areas, and a small but fragrant herbs garden, ideal for those who’re into cooking!
And if you like cooking, you will fall in love with the gorgeous kitchen, with top-quality utensils, microwave, and Nespresso machine.
During our stay, we always ate at the apartment (it was really cold!), I admit that one evening we ordered because we were really tired, but cooked too, and that kitchen is just perfect!
The property is managed by the owners, Dimitris and Katerina, who really know how to provide unparalleled hospitality (and who kindly shipped to Chania my cosmetics bag with medicines that I forgot at the apartment, thank you!)

RESOURCES TO BOOK YOUR TRIP:
Book your flight: I use Skyscanner to compare prices before booking a plane ticket.
Book your ferry: When ferries are more convenient than air travel, I use Ferryhopper.
Book your accommodation: I’ve tried many different platforms for accommodation, but none of them beats the advantages of Booking.com.
Book your car: The best way to find an affordable car to rent is to use a powerful search engine that compares all the rental companies in the market. I use Discover Cars.
Don’t forget travel insurance: Things can go wrong at times, but travel insurance will protect you against illness, injury, theft, and cancellations. I recommend Safety Wing for peace of mind.
