The Crete region
Ano Hersonissos is a small village which retains its traditional character. Ano Hersonissos is also known as “Palia” (Old) Hersonissos, as opposed to “Nea” (New) Hersonissos, the famous tourist resort.
Ano Chersonissos is small, picturesque and quiet. Although affected by tourism, it retains most of its traditional architecture and the pace of life is slower than that of the modern cities on the north coast of Crete. You can wander through the narrow alleys and admire the stone houses with their courtyards full of flowers, the old wells and the outdoor wood-burning ovens. There are two churches in the village, one in the main square and one at the end of the village. Both are typical examples of Byzantine art and are worth a visit.
The best spot in Ano Chersonissos is definitely the round village square, surrounded by little tavernas and with a fountain in the middle. In daytime the square is almost empty, but on summer evenings it is full of life. Locals and tourists fill the tavernas to try tasty Cretan dishes, drink the local wine and have fun with their friends. In recent years the tavern owners have organised a Cretan evening once a week, usually on Mondays, with live music and traditional dances. But things change every year, so ask if they're still on.
Ano Chersonissos is a small village offering only basic facilities. For anything else you'll have to walk down to coastal Hersonissos. It's two kilometres away and the road is downhill, so you'll be there in about 20 minutes. If you don't fancy the idea of coming back on foot, you can easily get a taxi from Chersonissos, costing about €5. Otherwise you can rent a motorbike or a car to visit the local beaches or the nearby towns and villages. Unfortunately there's no bus between Ano and coastal Chersonissos.
In the main square there is a kiosk selling cigarettes, Greek and foreign newspapers and magazines, and lots of other knickknacks. It's usually open from early in the morning to late in the evening.
In the square there is also a mini-market, with a few greengrocers' shops and cheap supermarkets a bit further on. If you can't find what you're looking for here, coastal Chersonissos is full of supermarkets large and small. You can also go there if you need a doctor, a chemist's, a bank or a cashpoint.

"Lovely apartment, all the added extras including a personal tour around the area."
We stayed here for 8 nights in June. It had everything we needed. The area was lovely and quiet, the wet room style bathroom downstairs is amazing. Local villages have plenty of places to eat but as w… More
