Spirit of Adventure
Venture a little further afield and discover mountain villages little touched by time. We have suggested ten days out to whet your appetite but we can recommend many more.
Villa Kerasi is the perfect antidote to modern life where you can chill by the pool or read a book in the shade of the library or snooze under a pergola whilst planning tomorrow’s adventure. It is the perfect place to do as much or as little as you feel, be as sociable or as private as you wish. In the early evenings, as the sun sets over the mountain you will hear the distant sound of bells get louder and louder until the shepherd comes into sight, driving his flock of sheep, lambs and goats past the villa, raising his crook in salute.
Throughout the year, Cretans will find any excuse to break bread and enjoy the company of friends and family in local festivals. Throughout the year there are many Saints day’s, celebrations and Religious festivals, particularly in the summer months. Vamos is famous for it's cultural fiestas with art, jazz, wine and food festivals.
We have a full calendar of events from regional and national events to a jazz club in a local village kafenion.
