It is located opposite a state protected park which includes a river (that plunges over a waterfall near sea level) with a plane forest and is a registered path (called "Rihtis gorge" or "Richtis gorge") which has become one of the most popular attractions in far eastern Crete (look it up!)

Total area of land: 130,790 sqm
Access to the property is through a newly upgraded and widened concrete road about 4.5km off the Heraklion - Sitia national road.
The main beach (which is public property) is around 1.3km from the property and is walk-able by anyone or a 2 min drive.
