  Information about Terra Minoika Traditional Houses rental in Crete

No one could ever imagine that almost 3,000 square meters (sq.m.) of native, granite hardferrous-stone would be responsible for an environment so delicate to the senses.

The valley, overgrown with olive-trees, vineyards and gardens
The ramshackled carcass of the Minoan Palace
The entrance to the Dead's Gorge, carved in perpendicular slopes as if by Titans, within numerable caves and wild goats around
The plain, pure white, orthodox St Antonios' chapel
The fishing boats and the seagulls, proud ornaments of a gulf belonging to a sea that stretches as far as the eye can see
The beach with the picturesque fish-taverns and its “Blue Flag”, awarded for its crystal-clear waters.

The mountains, full of wild natural beauty, scenting the unique fragrances of the herbs ofthe Cretan soil, the cloudless sky, which on the mainland is interrupted only by the mountain crests that crown the valley, and in the horizon meets the sea in an eternal erotic embrace.

A composition of colours, sounds and fragrances, a conjectural crescendo that the creator conceived through divine inspiration but also a composition carefully decorated by a tactful human presence Images that hardly quench the senses, but one can rejoice them either by simply gazingthrough the windows which adorn every apartment like beautiful paintings or by comfortably seated at the terraces and the countless spots of Terra Minoika (Minoan Land) dedicated toreverie.

Terra Minoika is a surprise, even to the experts, due not only to its unique construction but also due to the architectural inspirations of its creators as well.

  Information about Kato Zakros in Lassithi, Crete

Kato Zakros remains one of the most original, unspoiled, non touristic destinations in Crete.

The breathtaking view of the magnificent bay of Kato Zakros is may be the most popular picture for the photographers in Eastern Crete. The bay was active since Minoan ages and used to be a commercial center at that time.

Minoans build there their fourth founded palace, the ruins of which is one of the major attractions for the visitors. In 1961 Nikolaos Platon traced and excavated the non looted palace and surprised the archaeological community with the amazing variety of the findings which gave precious information about the way of living and the level of civilization of the Minoans.

Another major attraction of Kato Zakros is the famous Gorge of the dead. The canyon that starts from the village Zakros and goes on the last footsteps of the international trail E4 ends in the bay of Kato Zakros. The strange name is given to the canyon from the archaeologist Nikolaos Platon who discovered numerous tombs in the caves of the Gorge. Nowadays there are goats and sheep herding all over the length of the Gorge and also very good vertical rock ideal for climbing.

Due to the efforts of Elias Pagiannides owner of TERRA MINOIKA (mountaineer with experience in Alps, Kilimanjaro, Himalayas and all the Greek high mountains) all the trails in the area are clean and very well marked. From Elias you can take all the necessary trekking information of the area as well as his climbing equipment to perform interesting climbs in the Gorge of the dead.

Another interesting site of the area is the cave of Pelekita. A huge almost unexplored cave a few meters from the sea (one hour walk from Kato Zakros) 350 meters deep with amazing stalactite and stalagmite decoration. But if you don’t like hikes and walks, the beautiful, little seaside of Kato Zakros is one of the most tranquil and friendly places to hang out on vacations in Crete.

Four taverns by the beach provide you the best Cretan food you can taste on the island. Fresh fish, meat, vegetables, cheese, milk products, potatoes are cooked by the traditional way with fresh olive oil and of course it is worth tasting local olives, fruit, raki, wine, sweets and much more.

The weather is always sunny, except some rainy days in winter and some windy days in August. But except good weather, interesting sites, unspoiled sea, beautiful walks, tranquil atmosphere, pure food, you will enjoy the smile, the friendship and the traditional hospitality of the local people.
