Location description from owner

The Lasithi Prefecture region

Crete is the largest of the Greek Islands, locals consider themselves Cretans first and Greeks second. There are many remnants of the early Minoan settlement of the island. The most famous of these is Knossos near Heraklion, but the ruins of Gournia are only ten minutes drive from the villa and Faestos is a long day trip.
Crete enjoys a lovely climate with pleasant winter temperatures and hot sunny summer days with warm seas. A jumper may be needed in the evening for al fresco dining at either end of the season and occasionally on breezy summer evenings.

Istron

The hill on which Khami sits is between the traditional Cretan village of Kalo Horio and the resort of Istron, which has grown up along the coast road. The resort has been developed with sensitivity. There is no high rise over development, but visitors are well catered for with plenty of tavernas (getting on for 20 altogether) and mini markets. There are also a couple of bars and an internet café. Istron has three different beaches, ranging from pebbles to beautiful sand. All of them are blue flag beaches. Tracks up into the mountains and around the coastal headlands give plenty of opportunities to walk off any over indulgence in the tavernas!

Khami is at the Aghios end of Istron, the furthest beach at the other end of the resort is about 5 minutes by car, but probably 40 minutes walk in the heat. As such we think a car is essential for your stay. The tavernas at our end of the resort are about ten minutes walk, so it is possible to walk down for the evening, but the hill can seem quite steep when full of Moussaka, and a torch (one is provided) is also advisable for night time excursions.

There are plenty of other blue flag beaches along the coast if you tire of the local offering. For more lively night life, Aghios Nikolaos has plenty of bars and clubs and is easily accessible by bus or taxi. Aghios offers the best shopping for visitors and locals alike, where there is also a market every Wednesday, selling everything from a wide variety of fresh produce to clothes and fabrics.

A drive up to the Lassithi plateau, a large flat arable plain in the mountains once irrigated by windmills, is a must. Some of the windmills have been restored, though few pump water, and there are many craft shops selling rugs and pottery as well as honey from the mountains. The village of Kritsa is close by in the hills behind Aghios and is famous for its olive oil, lace and linen.

“Great time in Khami”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2016

We had a great time in Khami, the villa is very well equiped. Outside, the big terrace and pool were very much appreciated and the stars are spectacular when night comes. The views in the day aren't bad either and the ping pong table made us have great fun ! Khami is a very good base to visit the North East and South East of Crete, I would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
