If anyone of you is looking for a good restaurant near Matala and Kalamaki, then we would like to recommend estiório Chrisopigi. Delicious Greek dishes served in an unusual way surrounded by a well-tended garden are the perfect end to the day. We recommend!
The profession of this 82-year-old Cretan is slowly falling into oblivion and his role is taken over by production lines in factories. Giorgos Chatziparaschos is one of the last producers of confectionery created on the basis of the hand-made filo pastry and its small plant can be visited in Rethymno, for which we strongly urge you.
Encouraging descriptions in guidebooks and the equally positive relationships we have encountered on the internet have made us, when we planned our first vacation in Crete, Kritsa was among those places that we had to see. When we reached the largest village of Crete, we were enchanted by its charming alleys and despite the strong southern sun, we were gladly wading through the thicket of narrow streets and narrow passages separating the next houses. Eventually, quite accidentally, we came to one of the central Kritsa squares, where the Nostimon store is located.
The Hydria pottery workshop in Asomatos is one of those special places where you can still see the Cretan craft. Stavros Kallonakis is handed out by unique ceramics with high quality and interesting patterns. We recommend!
When in 2008 for the first time we came to Nida, we dubiously entered the only tavern located on this plateau. A large building, which is difficult to call a finite one, did not give a very optimistic impression. Above the windows, someone using the oil paint smeared the word TABEPNA. It looked a little professional and looked like an abandoned building.
