Sitia in Crete

Hotels and apartments

 

It is a two hour car journey from Heraklion to the softly curving great bay of Sitia, and the harbour town of the same name which is noted for its fine wines and particularly peace loving, hospitable and cheerful inhabitants. The white buildings of Sitia sit in tiers like an amphitheatre, with little streets and steps taking one all the way up to the Venetian Castle.

Sitia

The beautiful sweeping beach at Sitia has been awarded the Blue European Flag. The most easterly of the larger harbours of Crete, this is the last stop for the ferries before they head for the islands of Karpathos and Rhodes.

The town is built on the slopes of two hills, which rise up from the sea around one end of the bay. It was known as La Sitia by the Venetians, who built a fortified wall and castle, and the walk towards the harbour has all of the charm one hopes to find in a Greek water front. The steep climb upwards from the harbour front leads to the fort with views down over the esplanade and ferry boat quay.

The beach, with its fine white sand, sun loungers, umbrellas and invitingly safe clear waters, is ideal for beach lovers and children alike. The local people have a reputation of lovers of music and festivals, and the August celebration of the sultana, with its never ending flow of wine, can be unforgettable! The most interesting day excursions from Sitia are to the Minoan ruins at Zakros, Vai beach, Palekastro and Topolou monastery, or the Valley of the Dead. Our holiday accommodation is situated on the outskirts and surrounding area of Sitia, and is chosen to offer visitors an delightfully restful holiday.

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.
