Location

On land of approx 200mē it is set in the old village centre, surrounded by stonewalls, entered via a gate and enjoying fantastic views of the mountains.

The village of Vafes is found at the "foot" of the majestic “Lefka Ori” (White Mountains), an area blessed by its calming beauty and Cretan grandeur, among the cypress and olive trees. Vafes is a historical village, situated 37km from Chania at an altitude of 210m. It dates back to 700AD. Many historical battles have taken place here throughout the village's life. A building from the Venetian times is operating today as a traditional tavern.

Vafes is historical, traditional and preserved settlement, built of stone carved by the named “pelicans” of Apokoronas, centuries ago. This happened up in the mountainsides of the Municipality of Krionerida, where the rivers of the nearby villages Vrysses and Georgioupolis have their springs. There are about 170 residents in Vafes, involved mostly with agriculture, but also highly motivated in the past few years with matters of the environment and preservation of the cultural heritage. The residents are highly activated in Agro-Tourism. This attracts the interest of visitors in the settlement. There are two main caves in the area. The well known cave of Krionerida went down in history when in 1821 during the Greek revolution; the Turks caused asphyxiation to 130 women and children of the village that sought refuge in the cave. The other is a bigger labyrinthine cave with unknown length. The people of Vafes are proud of their history which starts from the Venetian occupation. The villagers have taken part in all the Cretan revolutions providing some of the greatest chieftains. Their ancestors excelled around Greece as well as in Greek communities around the world.

Geographically Vafes is ideally situated to explore the real Crete, away from the industry of mass tourism. You can follow the trails that lead all the way up to Lefka Ori or just go out for a drive through all the villages of Apokoronas. You can visit one of the many caves, and collect local flora, or take a relaxing walk through the Gorge of Krionerida. Visit the two Venetian bridges, the watermills of the river Boutakas, the beautiful chapels and the 1000! Year old monastery of the Asomati (without bodies) Saints. Worth noting is that the monastery was privately restored. All of the above are within a 3km radius. If you choose to drive off further, you will then find the villages of Nippos, Fres, Tzitzifes, Alikambos and Embrosneros. Landscapes of a unique beauty, Byzantine and Venetian monuments and lots of activities offered by Apokoronas await the visitor all the year round. In addition the beach of Georgioupolis is but a few kilometres away from Vafes (10min by car).
