demeure superbe et accueil chaleureux

  • 4 of 5

En immersion dans le petit village Agios Loannis, dans une demeure superbe, spacieuse qui correspond absolument au descriptif .

L 'accueil est excellent, les propriétaires sont plus que charmants et n'ont pas hésité à nous servir un repas grec à notre arrivée vers 22 heures et nous offrir l'essentiel pour le petit déjeuner du lendemain.

On recherchait le mode de vie crétois et la découverte du pays et on a trouvé tout cela dans les environs et plus loin avec des paysages superbes et des petits villages perchés qui semblaient d 'un autre temps.

N'hésitez pas si comme nous vous recherchez le confort et la découverte de la vie du peuple Crétois

In Agios Ioannis village, located in Mylopotamos province, 40 Kms southeast of Rethymnon, between Kalyvos and Agios Mamas villages. It is inhabited by just 70 people, who are engaged in agriculture and animal farming. Almost the entire village took part in the Battle of Crete.

It’s name comes from the homonymous church of Agios Ioannis, which is the oldest one in Mylopotamos area. The village appears in the 12th century. The frescoes of the churches, and the church itself, dating at the time, suggest so. Also, two other churches exist in the village. There is the church of the Koimisi tis Theotokou, which also dates back to 12th century and that of Agios Georgios, which is newer.

In the Ottoman era, Turks lived in Agios Ioannis. A Venetian house, called “Mansion”, which features a turkish inscription on the front door and which is believed to have been the residence of a Venetian man who was Islamised, still exists. This particular house has probably been used as a tower, although it was not built for this purpose. Today it is inhabited by the descendants of that man.

Many worth visiting sight seeing locations can be found in nearby places. To name a few, there is The Tower of Kerimides in Episkopi village (1.9 Kms), Diskouri Monastery in Mylopotamos (3.7 Kms), Sfendoni Cave and Zoniana Gorge (6.5 Kms), Ancient Eleftherna village and Tower (9.3 Kms), Ancient Axos (6.3 Kms), Attali Monastery and Bali beaches (9.5 Kms), Panormo beach (15 Kms), Margarites Gorge and domed tomb (8.5 Kms) and many more!

Next to the village passes the river Geropotamos. Over the river, in Voukolida area, there was a big cave, where Christians, while under Turkish rule, hid their valuable belongings and sealed its entry, right before leaning the village for good. The current residents still haven’t found that entrance to the cave! Furthermore, situated Peristeres there are two wonderful, large and deep caves with stalactites and stalagmites. In another location called Maura Spilaia, there are many small caves, on the top side of the gorge.
