Vacations on a traditional destination
Agathias Traditional Village is a small local community 20km far from Sitia and 150 km from Heraklion City, specializing in holidays with a difference that focus on the cultural aspects of the Sitia area and which promote ethical sustainable tourism and activities. Step back in time in our beautiful traditional village, away from the busy tourist resorts but only a few minutes drive from several sandy beaches. Our guests range from individual travelers, families and small or bigger groups of friends, who love to enjoy the benefits that responsible low-impact tourism can bring to the area and the local community.
In Agathias you will find a warm hospitality, traditional atmosphere, Cretan tradition, village life, pure flavor, and rich flora and fauna.
In short, if you would like to taste natural honey and virgin olive oil, walk on village paths or local countryside, smell the flowers in bloom, say ‘kalimera’ (goodmorning) to the locals whilst drinking coffee or ‘tsikoudia’ (local drink) at the village kafenion and tavern, enjoy the sun and sea in nearby beaches, then you will be in the right place!
Agathias village is located in East Crete, 20 km from the beautiful city of Sitia and 150 km from Heraklion.
We are looking forward meeting you!
