The Crete region
Following the north central road network from Hania to Kissamos for no more than ten (10) kilometers (6,2 miles) and without losing sight of the beautiful coast side that oversees the Cretan Sea, we meet the most organized tourist region of the district of Hania: Platanias.
As most of the villages of the area, the first references of it can be traced back in ancient times, while there is a clear history of it in the Venetian archives.
Placed on the top and the slopes of a steep hill, it extends downwards towards the sea, accompanied by the clear waters of the beautiful river Keritis. The river is well known from the epic poems of Homer by the ancient Greek name of Iardanos.
Continuing our tour, after 6 kms from Platanias,we will find on our route among the low hills the village of Xamoudohori .
At its traditional cafeteria in the center of the village awaits us, aside from local manufactured soft drinks, the traditional homemade famous tsikoudia.
The hills of Xamoudohori offer a panoramic view of the vineyards and olive groves, as well as of the bay of Hania and the cape of Spatha.
A little further down the road, we come across Maleme, a village that has been marked by history in various ways and times.Its roots begin in the post-Minoan era (1600 - 1070 B.C.), but it is remembered mostly for the fierce fighting that took place here during the German assault on Crete in 1941.The oldest churches in the village are those of Aghios Antonios, which was built in 1918, and the small Byzantine chapel of Saint Peter and Paul, a building of 1530, which may be the oldest in the whole region.
At the edge of the municipality, located in a semi-mountain region with plenty of sparkling waters, green scenery and remarkable landscapes for touring and resting, is the village of Deres.
Most interesting is a visit to the complex of well-preserved Venetian monastery buildings, as well as to the many chapels of the area. Undoubtedly, the images of the Cretan hospitality of the people of Deres and their traditional celebrations will be an unforgettable experience and a warm memory.Try to find time to... honor them with your presence at one of the four festivals that begin in July and end in early September. Taste the local thyme honey, Gruyere cheese, light wine, fried delicacies and, of course, tsikoudia... Also, a horse riding school operates in the area, with its own tavern for rest, food and horseback riding.

"Beautiful location and well designed villa. Would definately go again!"
We had a fantastic time at Villa Nafsika. The mountain views are simply breathtaking. We travelled with 2 young children and 2 Grandparents and the layout and size of the bedrooms all with en suite a… More
Thank you for your comments! The sliding doors just needed an adjustment and they are fine now, I wish this was mentioned dutring your stay of one week, so we would have sent the maintenance!
Air conditioning in villa Nafsika, is undrfloor cooling, and each room/area has its own temperature control, so guests can adjust to their required indoors temperature. It is adjusted notto operate if the interior temperature is 18C or lower, as one would only need to cool the villa if the interior temperature is above 18C. I can assure you that it works perfectly in the whole year, as well as in July and August, as we have repeat guests (they have already booked some weeks for 2015!).
The internet: there were promises that there would be a telephone line in the villa area, but this has not yet happened unfortunately. The Vodafone shop in Kalives, sell sim cards for internet (for Ipad, or smart phones) and the cost is 1 euro per day for this, as our travel advisor mentioned during her visit. So until the telephone wiring is installed by our phone company, the mobile internet solution is offered.
Thank you once again for choosing Nafsika for your week in May!
With warm regards
