Pavlos, Tripiti three rock beach, Ligres beach and so many more unique and beautiful spots.
Our place is for groups of travelers who are after authentic experiences not so much for tourists who prefer big resorts and all inclusive services. If you are ready to explore Crete then just let us know!
In short distances from the house (3-5 km) you will find the Amari Dam Reservoir, a natural habitat where the world famous 'Sifis the crocodile' used to spend his days and nights.
Also at Patsou region there is the cave of St. Anthony , the ancient Sivrytos , the monastery of Asomati, the Minoan settlement of Monastiraki and Apodoulou which are just some of the most famous sights of Amari region.
The nearest E4 path passes through Gerakari village, just some 7 km away from our home, where cherries blossom during spring and farmers and shepherds will show you the typical Cretan life.
If you just stick around and be kind and polite you will be invited for a glass of raki or wine and some ‘mezedes’ while they share their stories with you.
If you feel like visiting Psiloreitis mountain then our home is the perfect base-camp for such an excursion. You can reach the top of the mountain and be mesmerised by the out of this world truly Cretan rough beauty of the environment. Breath the fresh air of the habitat that raised Zeus the God of Gods.
But that is not all. Travel around and explore all the small villages of Psiloreitis. Each one of them has something unique to offer, distinct cultures and beautiful authentic Cretan people, unaffected by the heavy tourism of the North of the island.
Just some kms around our home you will find the villages of Monastiraki, Amari, Meronas, Gerakari, Fourfouras, Vistagi and more. Also don't miss the chance to experience the original way Cretans prepare fresh milk to make cheese with it and visit the 'Mitata' of the region. Mitata are our own Rocky cool igloos. They are found high in the mountains and were built by shepherds in order to provide some shelter for them during winter but also served as their working space where they were storing their equipment, made cheese and slept at night.
