Kamilari - Kalamaki in Crete

Hotels and apartments

 

This typical Cretan farming village, just over one and a half hour’s drive from Heraklion, has kepts its original character, and remains largely untouched by tourism. Kamilari is picturesquely set on a hill, with fabulous panoramic views over the Ida mountains, over the fruitful Messara plain and to the sea beyond.

Kamilari- Kalamaki

Thanks to Greek hospitality, the warm welcome given to children and rural village life, it is the sort of place where one quickly feels at home. Alongside the small shops there are Greek tavernas and Kafeneions which will give you a flavour of Cretan village life.

Around the village there are lots of places to explore, perhaps by setting off on foot along some of the country footpaths, or going further afield by car. Among some of the possible outings to choose from are the Minoan archaeological sites at Phaistos and Agia Triada, only 3 km away,

Matala with its famous cliff side caves, numerous old monasteries, the mountain village of Zaros with its trout farm, and a gorge which is comparable to the well known Samaria Gorge and well worth exploring. For those seeking the sea, the kilometre long sandy beach of Kalamaki is 2,5 km away, with its cliff sides and wooden areas, as well as the 12 km sandy beach of Komos. At both of these places there are further tavernas, little shops, Pensions and holiday homes.

Tip of the day

Top beaches.  Crete, Greece
Kouremenos near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
A real magnet for windsurfers from all over the world, who find ideal wind-wave combinations.
Rihti - Exo Mouliana near Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
Two hours walk through the Rihtis gorge, which is a beautiful path that culminates with Rihtis waterfall near Rihtis beach, will take you to one of the most secluded beaches of the island.
Istron or Kalo Chorio (North-Estern Crete)
A place filled with legends and traditions – but you will find quality tourism services too.
Maridati South of Vai beach (North-Eastern Crete)
Two big rocks are the landmarks of this beach that remains unknown to the masses.
Mochlos (North-Eastern Crete)
A village filled with fish taverns with a view of the Pseira Island, and lots of archaeological findings.
Kato Zakros (Estern Crete)
If you follow the two hours long footpath through the “gorge of the dead” you will be rewarded with the view of a magnificent beach but also of the Minoan Palace of Zakros destroyed on 1450 B.C. possibly by a Thira (Santorini) volcano explosion.
Hiona near Paleokastro (North-Estern Crete)
Shallow waters for the kids and young swimmers, and a well known - all over the island - local fish soup.
Aghia Fotia - Sitia (South-Estern Crete)
We are not talking about the district with the same name at Ierapetra, here we find ourselves 7 kms east of Sitia in an area where the biggest cemetery of Minoan Crete was discovered.
Xerokambos – Sitia (South-Estern Crete)
Thousands of lilies at the eastern part of Crete fill the atmosphere with sensual vibes.
