5: Kritsa & Krousta Village

Nestled further afield in the Cretan mountains lie the sister villages of Kritsa & Krousta. Kritsa is one of the oldest villages in Crete, built like an amphitheatre on the hillside with the coastline at centre stage. Explore its winding streets filled with Byzantine art, handicrafts and rich cultural traditions, discovering its various taverns and restaurants serving up authentic Cretan gastronomy. Alternatively, make a day out of it and head over to the nearby Krousta village. With sweeping views over Mirabello Bay, this quaint and rustic village is famous for making myzithropites, a delicious regional cheese pie.

Whatever you’re after, whether it be the buzz of a traditional taverna or the flickering lights of a restaurant, Crete has it all. Staying at Elounda Gulf Villas puts you in a unique position, right in the beating heart of authentic Cretan culture with a world of gastronomy at your doorstep.
