Unforgotten excursions and recreation

Die Our hotel is located near the Listaros, a small village in southern Crete [approx. 200 m (492 ft) above the sea level]. From each of the apartment you can enjoy a beautiful view of the sea and the mountains Idi with its highest point, Psiloritis [2456 m (8057 ft)]. Listaros is known for its marvelous weather – you will feel well in this microclimate.

From hotel “Psiloritis” you can take the different trips to discover Crete. Whether to see beautiful beaches in Komos and Matali (10 minutes by car) or famous caves, where in 60’s and 70’s the Hippies settled. Only 20 minutes from Matali there is a beautiful bay of a “Red Beach”, the favorite place for the naturists.

In Listaros you can spend a quiet time, far away from the typical tourist crowd. You can walk (or take a car or motorcycle) to Sivas, 2.5 km (1.6 mile) from Listaros, a beautiful village with many taverns, where you should stop to experience delicious Greek food. You can also shop in many of small stores in Sivas, Matali or in Mires, where you also will find the banks, discotheques, pharmacies.
You will however need a car or motorcycle to go to Matali or Mires. If you wish to rent a car, you may want to visit Heraklion, capital and the biggest city in Crete or you may also go to Chania, located 70 km (43.5 miles) and 120 km (74.6 miles), respectively from “Psiloritis” hotel.
