Nearby Matala, about 70 km southwest of Iraklio, one of the oldest villages in the heart of South Crete is located: The ancient fishing village Pitsidia, within a stone's throw of beautiful Komo Beach, is among the most favored destinations for all, who are not looking for mass tourism such as often seen at the northern coast. The village has kept its nativeness and Pitsidians are well known for their hospitality. But however it's a cosmopolitan location, where international artists and scholars found a secondary home.
The calm and cosy village - known for its traditional taverns - is stamped by angular narrow alleys. Above the famous Komo Beach with its archaeological excavations, it's surrounded by olive groves. Mostly happening outdoors, life is stamped by the dry and warm climate as well as the unique light of the region. Olive trees and the production of the worldwide known oil, winegrowing and fishing are dominating life. Lot of beautiful beaches will be found nearby ...
