The area around the village is totally in nature and quiet! You will be able to relax and feel “away from it all” from the first moment of your arrival.
It is one of the best locations if you seek to stay away from the tourist areas of Crete and also visit the amazing natural beaches of south Crete like Praveli, Damnoni, Schinaria, Triopetra and many more!
There are two big villages nearby where you can find shops, bakeries, many taverns and supermarkets. The well known village of Spili which also has a health centre is located 10 minutes away by car and the village of Armeni is 15 minutes away.
Finally in the South coast, about 20 minutes away from the villa there is a small sea front town of Plakias where you can find everything that you might need and also several choices for entertainment.
If you like adventure, the location also offers the advantage of exploring the unique natural environment of Crete’s inland. Explore the villages, interact with the locals, find taverns with real Cretan cuisine and products, walk in the gorges around or find some totally isolated beaches! We will be happy to make you suggestions and directions for places which only locals know about them!
