Far removed from the tourist resorts the village is only 15km from the centre of Chania with its stunning Venetian harbour. Ideal for anyone who wants to relax, experience the locals’ Crete and wake up to the sound of sheep’s bells.
Visit the real Crete
Theriso and the surrounding village, Zourva and Drakona, are very traditional and certainly the latter two, with stunning vistas.
To experience the real Crete you need to leave the normal tourist trail. Theriso, though only 15km from Chania feels like a different century. Visit the local cheesemaker to eat the cheese made in the village by the locals; eat meat in the tavernas that has roamed the surrounding mountains. The restaurants not only use mainly organic and local produce, they are also surprisingly low in cost!!
