You also will be provided with a delicious Cretan appetizer plate when you arrive and a continental breakfast . For your convenience in the village , there is a small family-run grocery store and a great coffee shop , serving drinks and small Greek specialty plates all within walking distance from the house ! There is a larger chain grocery store nearby you can get to by car too . Come and experience Crete with us :-)
I am an American who has lived on the island for 15 years now . It would be my pleasure to assist you in all your excursions and help you experience the real Crete , with all of her ancient mysteries and natural beauty . In the summer ( about 6 months long ) of course we have the pristine beaches everywhere you look , fall and winter we have the making of wine , raki ( or moonshine ) and the harvesting for olive oil through out the villages . There is a fantastic winery nearby to visit and tour called Boutari Winery that is just 4 kilometers from the house . There you will be able to taste , experience and buy some of our local wines to take back home with you too ! There is also a beautiful canyon called the Karteros Canyon just down the hill from the chalet where you can take long hikes through nature .There are over 6,000 villages , 3 ,000 caves and more than 350 beaches to explore on the island and all unique in their own special way . You will never forget Crete ♥
