Fodele Holidays

In a fertile valley to the west of Heraklion, known for its orange groves, Fodele is green and fresh well into the start of summer. A traditional village adjoins a modern resort here giving you both a delightful old quarter to explore and plenty of tourist accommodation and facilities running down to the sandy beach and sparkling blue sea.

The beach offers sunbeds and snackbars and there is accommodation for all tastes and ages, ranging from a large all inclusive resort with its own waterpark to small self-catering units.

It is said that the famous painter El Greco (the Greek) was born here in the mid-sixteenth century and the El Greco House and Museum occupies a building that is, at very least, of the right period. Inside are memorabilia and reproductions of the artists’ work and outside a shady café. Fodele also boasts a charming little frescoed twelfth-century Byzantine church.

Only about 25km from Heraklion, Fodele is easy to reach, and in spring particularly, the locals of Heraklion come out here for a traditional Sunday lunch by the river that keeps Fodele green.
