The Crete region
This quiet little village of Keratokampos/Kastri situated next to the sea, is a small resort that has long been enjoyed by the locals with "weekenders" coming from Heraklion and Atheians descending in high season. The last few years have now also attracted visitors from the European market who have slowly begun to discover and enjoy the tranquillity and real village atmosphere of this village.
You find Keratokampos at the end of a long road that winds down from Ano Viannos, the largest village in the area and only 15 mins away, through picturesque scenery of pretty hillside villages and olive groves. Life in Keratokampos/Kastri centres along the main street which lines the sand and shingle beach. There are tavernas and cafés ensuring you dont need to go to far to experience real Cretan cooking at its best.
We not only bring you an affordable experience, we also bring you a high quality product and you can discover the 'real' Crete. Our passion for this unique island has led us to this area and properties in this small pretty resort with the splendid views and laid back lifestyle.
All over the Island are villages reflecting on the ancient way of life, people that are as warm and hospitable as the climate and a cuisine thats tasty and fresh.
This area makes a great base for exploring the south and its hinterland villages. Take walks along the coast, swim in the clear water, discover the sandy coves and other coastal villages nearby, sit in the shade of the Tamarisk trees, enjoy a drink playing backgammon with the locals or just relax gazing across the blue ocean horizon.
Amazingly you will discover the hours just fly by doing just that!
