Location:

Thanks to the rugged mountains that stretch across much of the islandĒs spine, southern Crete remains a place apart.

Known for their hospitality, traditional music and healthy home-cooking, Cretans are also fiercely independent. They frequently rebelled under Venetian and later Ottoman occupation, with southern strongholds such as Sfakia (a rocky, barren territory centred on the port village of Hora Sfakion) remaining unconquered.

Due to the towering cliffs overhanging the sea, the Sfakia area remains peacefully isolated; nearby settlements such as Loutro, a fishing village shimmering with white houses, or Sweetwater and Marmara (Marble) beaches are accessible by boat (the intrepid can hike there instead). Boat trips hug the coast westward from Hora Sfakion to Paleohora, via Loutro and Agia Roumeli; the latter is where throngs of tired hikers stumble out of the Samaria Gorge – at 16km, EuropeĒs longest.

Sfakia

The unspoilt and historical village of Sfakia is built on the hill slopes, overlooking the natural bay. It is situated around the White Mountains range and the famous Samaria Gorge.

Sfakia lies 72 km south east of Chania town.

Most of the inhabitants here are involved in fishing and goat raining producing delightful cheeses such as anthotiri or mizithra.

The main town of Sfakia constitutes an excellent place to start your exploration of the southern coast of Crete.

The village is very traditional and authentic and its calm atmosphere is only interrupted during the afternoon by the arrivals of hikers coming from the Samaria Gorge with small boats.

The village is known for its local cuisine and a few excellent restaurants can be found on the seafront and inside Chora. The picturesque port of Sfakia is surrounded by many cafes and fish taverns and nearby is the main beach of Sfakia which is an excellent choice for swimming.

Frangokastello

Frangokastello is one of the trademarks of Crete and one of the most visited places of the island. It is situated 80 km south east of Chania town, on an arid plain, surrounded by beautiful mountains.

The beautiful coastal settlement is famous for the Venetian castle and unique architecture.

Some excellent restaurants can be found around the castle as well as many accommodations and idyllic sandy beaches with clear shallow waters, really ideal for children.

The imposing castle of Frangokastello was built by the Venetians in 1371, right on the beach, as a protection from the pirates, and from the regular revolts of the locals against their authority.

The famous Battle took place in 1828 during the war of Independence against the Turkish yoke. The Cretan troops, led by Hatzimihalis Dalianis, sought refuge in the castle, and the Turks besieged it for seven days.
