About the neighbourhood
Except for the benefits and the facilities of the house, our guests have the chance to experience some parts of the real traditional cretan life.

You can buy bread and milk from the baker and the milkman that cross the village to sell their products. Almost every day, you will have fresh eggs from the hens of the neighbour.

You will have the chance to try many local delicious dishes (and see how they are prepared, too)

One of the most famous cretan dancers can teach you traditional Cretan dances if you wish.

If you go for a walk in the village, you will see the shepherds taking care of their herds of sheep or their goats. In the nearby area, you will meet people working in the fields, cultivating their land.

Furthermore, close to the village, there is a historic place...
