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

The village of Georgioupolis with it’s particulary beautiful setting between sea and mountain, is situated between the towns of Rethymno, a 30 minute journey by car and Chania which is a 45 minute drive away. This charming village with its long stretch of sandy beach and river running into the sea, was until recent times a sleepy little fishing village in an out of the way place.Over the past 20 years it has slowly grown into a very popular little holiday resort, with a wide range of tavernas, shops, cafes, boutiques and other tourist amenities. The beautiful countryside surrounding the village is ideal for those keen on walking, while the splendid sandy shore and relaxed sea side atmosphere make it ideal for beach lovers.
There is and excellent bus service in all directions and thus it is possible to go quite far afield, for example to Heraklion (90 min journey) or the south coast perhaps to visit Phaistos or Matala. An outing to Georgioupolis is also worthwhile. Closer to home there are interesting visits to be made to the old quarters of Chania and Rethymno.
