Villa Kantili is ideally located for quick access to the main road (Heraklion is a twenty-minute drive east, while the towns of Rethymnon, Hania, and Kastelli lie to the west), but is also within walking distance of two sandy beaches and the village of Aghia Pelaghia (which has numerous restaurants and shops.)
At the local tavernas, you can find food from around the world, but Cretan cuisine is distinct and delicious. In Cretan dishes youll find many local delicacies such as olives, olive oil, octopus, snails, herbs, goat cheese, yogurt, honey, nuts, and a variety of local fruits and vegetables. Local wine is produced all over the island, as is ouzo and raki.
Crete has something for everyone and the hospitality of its people is second to none. Its history dates back to before the Minoans and there is a wealth of historical and archaeological sites, monasteries and churches to visit. You can cycle, walk, horse-back ride, hike, sail, participate in a variety of water sports, or find an interesting excursion to join. Discover the country by car and visit annual events and local festivals. In most of the villages youll find a thriving night life where you can dance to Cretan music or disco all night. If you like shopping, there are many shops that sell local Cretan crafts such as leather, ceramics, jewelry and fabrics.
