High up in the hills in the Lerapetra municipality on the Greek island of Crete is the peaceful and historic village of Anatoli. The best thing about an Anatoli holiday is that it is far away enough from the masses of tourists for visitors to enjoy a peaceful trip but is close enough to the main centres of the island to access the various sights and activities on offer. Visitors will find that an Anatoli holiday rental house provides all of the amenities you need to have a completely stress-free trip without having to compromise on the views you get from your window.
As the village is small and situated away from the main hub of activity on the island, the number of pursuits available for visitors is limited to walking, mountain biking, swimming, horse riding and mountaineering. There are opportunities in the immediate area of the village for activities such as fishing, sailing and water skiing.
If you decide that you would like to explore more of the island on your trip, then you can lock your Anatoli holiday rental house and head for the port town of Sitia which is approximately an hour and a half’s journey from the village. Sitia is noted for many things including its number of museums. Visitors will enjoy the Folklore Museum in Sitia which has a host of exhibits showing local items such as weavings, traditional costumes and artwork. Sitia also has its own archaeological museum that houses artefacts covering the Neolithic period up until the present day.
