An absolutely gorgeous hilltop village with fabulous views of the White Mountains. Set in the foothills of the White Mountains, just off the main road to the south coast, this is a very quaint and traditional village which has a kafenio where the very friendly locals gather to chat. The Church of the Koimesis is a tiny Byzantine chapel with extraordinary frescoes dating from the 14th century. Many conifers on the surrounding hillsides make this a very green village. Just on the outskirts of the village is the Dourakis Winery which produces 300,000 bottles of wine a year, and hosts dinners and lunches which include a tour of the winery and wine tasting. Very rural, yet only 7 minutes by car to the many amenities and the National Highway in Vrisses. 10 minutes to the sandy beaches at Georgioupolis, and 40 minutes to either Chania or Rethymnon.
