Meet your host, Vasilis
I was born and live in Patsos, a picturesque and historic village in Rethymnon, Crete. I served in the Hellenic Special Forces for 23 years ( Lt. Colonel retired ),graduate and certified of all schools, such as parachuting ,climbing and diving. I also have a keen interest and lots of knowledge about historical and cultural events. All the above, in combination with the genuine and lively Cretan hospitality, the real Cretan food will take you back to the taste of our grandmothers. If you want to see, feel, taste and touch the REAL Crete…you must visit Patsos and Patsos gorge.
Where you’ll be
We start from the village fountain with clear and cool waters. Walking through the magical landscape we will be able to see the Byzantine church (14th century A.D), the old cave chapel of St. Antonios which is pinned under towering and imposing cliffs. Then, we cross the incomparable natural beauty of Patsos gorge, following a perfect path. At the end we enjoy the unique spectacle of a huge lake feeling an incredible euphoria and self confidence.
It will be our pleasure to have you as our guests…
Maria and her son, Vassilis
