Villa Antina is a short walk from the mini-market and pizzeria/café in the quaint village of Litsarda and 5 minutes drive from the very pretty village of Vamos which has narrow streets and stone houses and is the administrative centre of the area. Vamos is an ideal starting point for hikes to the surrounding hills and it boasts the only forest of pine wood to be found in the area. A traditional stone road (kalderimi) still remains and a walk in the old part of the village is of great interest. To the south-east of the village, in the Karydi area, one can see the monastery of Agios Giorgos. The ruins of the church’s cells and the old oil-press, with its wonderful domes, remain standing to the present day. As it has done for hundreds of years, day to day life in Vamos revolves around the village square where the locals leisurely pass the time whilst drinking coffee and chatting to each other.
The village has a great atmosphere and a large number of amenities including a bank, 2 petrol stations, 3 tavernas, 2 souvlaki shops, a handful of cafes, a post office, a bakery, a hairdresser, mini markets, a clothes shop, a jewellery shop, and a number of gift shops and mini-markets. Litsarda is also a pretty 8 minute drive from the traditional village of Gavalohori. Five hundred metres from the village, you can see several renowned Venetian wells built on a landscape of rare beauty. In Gavalohori there are 4 tavernas, a bakery, 1 mini market, a souvlaki cafe, a lovely folklore museum and a women’s co-operative which has developed the fine art of handicrafts such as knitting, embroidery and lace making. The lovely village of Almyrida, which is built around a crescent shaped sandy beach, is only 8kms away. This beach is very shallow and safe, which is good news if you have children or are not a strong swimmer. Lining the beach are many excellent tavernas, cafes and shops and Villas Crete Holidays for tourist information, boat trips, horse riding, and guided walking tours and coach excursions. Also in Almyrida there is a scuba diving office, and a water sports centre which rents out kayaks, windsurfers and catamarans. For those of you looking for even more activity, the historic town of Chania is only 45 minutes away by car.
