Description from the owner
LISTAROS S.A and KSA SOU traditional settlement were established in the summer of 2002 from a group of old fellow students and friends that share a common passion and a common belief. A passion for Greece and Crete…and the belief that new alternative forms of tourism are feasible in Crete and more particularly in the broad region of western Messara.

Additional Location Information
In an island full of climatological and environmental diversities, the area of the Messara plain has a unique character and a lot of diversities to offer itself. It is the largest plain of Crete that extends to the central and southern region of Heraklion County. It is surrounded from the north by mount Idi (Psiloritis), from east by mount Dicti (Lassithiotika Ori) and from south by mount Asterousia that meet with the Libyan Sea. While the land of the Messara plain is one of the most fertile ones found on the island, the landscape changes dramatically as the traveler reaches mount Asterousia. A few small ports are the only ones that disrupt the deserted scenery. Monkhood blossomed here from the 7th till the 15th century, something that can be easily detected by the number of monasteries and sketes found in the near gorges and canyons. Some of the finest examples are the monasteries of Odigitrias, Koudouma and Apezanon, the sketes of Saint Nikita, Martsalo and Agiofarago gorge. At the edge of the western point of mount Asterousia lies Listaros village, the last passage to the mountain and the south coast.
