THE TRADITIONAL VILLAGE
The beautifully sculptured Traditional Village, set in lush rolling hills, yet just 12 km from the bustling resorts of North East Crete, provides a chance to sample the Real Crete in microcosm.
Open 16 hours a day from season start to season finish; the village invites visitors on a journey into Crete’s rural heartland to take a relaxing break in the serenity of the countryside. There are open-air barbecues to enable you to cook your own. Sit in our garden terrace in the shade of a cypress tree and enjoy the quiet beauty of the surrounding countryside as a gentle breeze tames the mighty Cretan sun and a lyre plays softly in the background.
Take a stroll around the delightful village paths, through arches strewn with bougamvillia and an enticing aroma of honeysuckle in the air. The artisans dwelling await you. It houses a pottery workshop, honey production, a salon of Byzantine hagiography, show of weaving, saddle making, a raki (local spirit) distiller and a number of other events that can provide our guests with knowledge concerning the ancient agricultural village life. In addition to that, a village market offers a great variety of handicrafts for sale, including honey, olive oil, Cretan herbs, wove material, silverware, pottery objects, olive soap, Cretan wine and many other products.
Fully relaxed, refreshed and laden with souvenirs you can then continue on your exploration of the real Crete. Or perhaps you’d like to stay into the evening to take part in our nightly celebration of Greek dancing, music, food and wine.
The choice is yours
