From our terraces on a clear day you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Libyan Sea, Mount Psiloritis (2,490 m), and Festos


Kamilari, an old village of 300 souls is about 1 km away from the main road between Festos and Matala. From our terraces you can enjoy a spectacular view of the sea, Psiloritis, Crete’s highest mountain (2490 m), and the Messara, Crete’s most fertile plain that is covered with olive groves. You also have an excellent view of Festos, the Minoan Palace just opposite about 2 km away. The morning and evening sun illuminates this valley in a very special way (Messara in original Minoan means “valley of light”).

The mountain village Kamilari is an ideal starting point for motorcycle excursions and hikes to monasteries, beautiful beaches and wild canyons. You will find several typical Cretan taverns and a small supermarket here.
