Luxury villa for sale in Akrotiri. Location information:

Akrotiri Peninsula lies just 10km away from the main city of Chania. The best thing about Akrotiri is it remains largely untouched by tourism, with quaint little villages nestling close to the coastline or sitting proudly in the hillsides of the peninsula.

You will find a lot of villages around this area and some amazing white sandy beaches, where you will find yourselves the only person on the beach.

Another point of interest that attracts people to the area of Akrotiri is the catacombs, tombs and caves in the area as well as some easily walk able gorges and ravines.

The Akrotiri Peninsula, its charming villages and rugged scenery is a must for people who want to see a little of the real Crete.

A lot of visitors to Crete come to see the amazing architecture of the many monasteries and churches that are spread through the Cretan countryside.

The area of Akrotiri peninsula is “blessed” with many fine churches, many from the Byzantine era with frescos and golden artwork adorning them as they did many over 500 years ago.

One fine example is the Monastery of Aghia Triada of Tzagaroli situated on the northwest of Akrotiri, open almost daily with a small museum. Also search out the Nuns’ Monastery of Agios Ioannis, a 17th century building near Korakies.

Some other churches you may want to visit are Agios Ioannis the Hermit - Katholiko, which is considered the oldest monastery in Crete dating from the 6th century.

Also try taking a visit to Cavernous Church of Agios Georgios Apidiotis located in the gorge of Mavre, near Pazinos village.

The main beaches are Stavros beach, Marathi beach, Tersanas Maherida beaches, Agios Onoufrios beach, Loutraki beach and the beach of Kalathas.Although some of the beaches are small, most have local Tavernas offering excellent Greek dishes including freshly caught Octopus, fish and even the local delicacy of sea urchin.
