Experience The Real Crete In A Stunning Mountain Village

Located in the heart of the Cretan White Mountains, just 15km from the centre of Chania, this charming house is an ideal base for those looking to escape from mainstream tourism. The drive to the villa takes you through the Theriso Gorge, a stunningly scenic drive shaded by Maple trees, the sun flickering through the trees and the sound of the running river underneath the road.

The village itself is tucked at the top of the gorge, with the stunning peaks of the White Mountains above.  Famous historically as the base for the 1805 revolution led by Politician, Eleftherios Venizelos, against the Ottoman Empire, and then successfully joined Crete with the rest of the Country forcing the remaining Turkish population to leave.

Being very traditional amongst the locals, they frequent the many restaurants when they want to eat local meat, as many are run by the local shepherds.

The many famous tavernas and restaurants of the village are reached in 5 minutes by foot, and there are two villages within a ten minute drive that have superb restaurants using all organic produce.
