The pool is the main attraction at these family-run apartments. But there’s a sandy beach down the road, too.
These whitewashed apartments come with a gleaming white pool area. The poolside bar serves snacks made from local produce, and it puts on regular live music and Greek nights.
The sandy beach is a 5-minute walk down the road, and there are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance, too.

Just home after 2weeks at ourania the apartments are basic but spacious kept really clean they are built like a small village within olive groves really nice staff are all very friendly and helpful special mention for Stella. Costas is really nice friendly person nothing is too much trouble for him we needed new shower head and he had it changed within ten mins ( excellent service) . Pool good size plenty loungers . Beach is about 300m walk. Restaurants all within easy walking distance ate in nearly all never had a bad meal in any but loved the limanaki at the beach . Be aware you need to like your food as portions are amazingly big but they don't get offended if you leave some . Some places even give you doggy bag lol would recommend gouves for quite peaceful holiday and would really recommend Ourania apartments well done costas and your staffMore

Perfect place to stay in Gouves
This was our fourth visit to the Ourania and once again we were not disappointed. Warmly greeted bu Kosta on our arrival, our apartment was perfect. The staff there are wonderful and it is like a home away from home.More
Good for relaxing or exploring
The (small) beach, stores and restaurants are a 10 minute walk away. It's also a good location to explore the Heraklion area. Our studio was clean and comfortable. The pool area is nice also for relaxing. The only thing missing could be Wi-Fi in the rooms; you need to go to the bar area to get it. Otherwise, a good value for money! More
Stayed here for a week st the beginning of September, and we loved it.We stayed in a spacious and clean 2 bedroomed apartment. The apartments are in a lovely setting amongst olive and fig trees. It's also in a great location, 5 minutes from the beach and shops. The staff are great and welcoming. We would definiately return.More
