The New Road leads from Kritsa to the INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT IN HERAKLION (IRAKLIO). You can find a wide variety on rental car services at the airport. You need 50-60 minutes from the airport to the cottage by car, driving along the costal highway and passing through impressive rocky gorge. There are parking facilities close to the cottage.

The cottage is perfect for families with children and couples. Enjoy board games, card games and a selection of books on the history of the island. This is a NON-SMOKING cottage, but smoking is permitted on the two roof terraces.

Enjoy delicious, authentic and inexpensive Mediterranean Food in the numerous taverns in town. Convenience stores and souvenir shops are all in walking distance from the cottage. In the shopping precinct you can find olive oil, textiles, leather shoes, leather belts, natural products (e.g. soap) and many more things. An other big grocery store LIDL can be found along the way to Agios Nikolaos about five minutes from the cottage by car. There is an ATM machine at the main road of the village about 150 meters away from the cottage.

Kritsa is famous for its narrow, picturesque, entwined alleys and authentic village houses. The village can be discovered during evening walks along all the beautiful walks in and around Kritsa.
The Greek houses, Greek churches and old olive trees create a unique atmosphere: have your camera ready to take beautiful vacation pictures.

There are many sights in and around Kritsa. There are two bathing beaches only 10 minutes away by car: sun loungers, sunshades, jet skis and other fun activities are available. You can find other sandy beaches and bays with azure, clear water only 15 minutes away. The popular seaside resort Elounda is about 20 minutes away by car.

If you are interested in archeology take a trip to the ruins in the old antique town Lato which is just outside the village located on a hill in the surround area. The port of this trade village was in, what is know today as Agios Nikolaos. The amount of archaeological finds indicates the value and importance of the area around Kritsa during the Bronze Age, the time of the Minoan culture. The palaces are well-known around the world. The most known palace of Knossos, near todays capital Iraklio, was the home of Minotaurus. You can also find medieval traces from the Venetian culture a few kilometers away. The most famous church Panagia Kerá, with its impressive fresco, is located at the entrance of Kritsa surrounded by olive groves.

If you enjoy hiking you will be impressed not only by the rock faces but also the gorge in the northern part of Kritsa. This gorge is so extremely narrow at some places that you can actually touch both flanks at the same time. The Lasithi plateau and the cave of Zeus ( the cave of Psychro ) is located only a few kilometers south-west.

The house has an official EOT-license.

I am an archaeologist and I work in a museum in Germany. We love the authentic flair of the village, the kindly people of Kritsá and the beautiful landscape. Visit Crete, visit Kritsá!
