Very close to traditional cafe, a well known restaurant in Crete and a mini market for the necessary! The beach of Stavromenos is about 2.5 km away, there you can also find bigger markets, bakery, butcher and gas station. Platanias where you will find plenty of bars, restaurants is just 3 k away!

The village of Asteri has several beautifully renovated houses and a small museum. To explore further afield, the Monastery of Preveli and the near-by Preveli beach with its famous palm trees are forty six kilometres away and the pretty coastal village of Bali with its many beautiful coves and beaches lies at a distance of twenty three kilometres. Nearer to home, the archaeological site of Stavromenos is just a five minute drive from Asteri and the findings from this site, dating back to the 5th century BC, can be seen in the archaeological museum in Rethymno. Crete is a magical island, rich in myths and legends, with something to offer all ages. History and culture, beautiful beaches, exciting nightlife and breath-taking scenery.
