Listed in a European network as one of ten most beautiful villages of Crete, is renowned for its healthy climate (dry and cool in summer, warm and sunny in winter), peaceful environment and splendid views to the sea.
There are 3 walking paths starting from the village and leading to small chapels and places of outstanding natural beauty and two Byzantine-Venetian chapels with a famous collection of icons. There is also a mini market and a family tavern with hearty, inexpensive food, both open all year around.

At 12 km the city of Ierapetra offers all facilities and activities of a big city (shops, supermarkets, banks, doctors, water front esplanade with restaurants and cafes, archaeological Collection, organized beach etc).
The location is ideal for all season’s vacation, amidst a green and sculptured rocky environment of outstanding natural beauty, that offers peace and tranquility of mind and senses, while being equally distanced from the East (gulf of Mirabello) and South (Ierapetra) most beautiful, sandy-blue flag- beaches of Crete.
