    “In the village shop of Kalamaki all purchases could be made. The local saleswoman was very friendly, as all inhabitants of the island, as we could tell.”

    “Kamilari is great for individual travelers. In the grocery store you really get everything you need. There are many small taverns with great and in our opinion typical Cretan food. Delicious. We have not experienced a single flop there. The same applies to the nearby Pitsidia.
    Also Matala is worth seeing.
    We were not impressed by Kalamaki. Very touristy and adapted kitchen.
    Many buildings look like construction ruins. But the beach is really nice and not crowded.”

    “Sea with sandy beach, many beach chairs - what are missing are changing facilities on the beach, but this would be nothing complicated.
    The gastronomy is numerous represented along the beach, good.
    For shopping there is a supermarket, but you get everything there. There are also various shops for holiday souvenirs.”

The host
Nikos Pirounakis is a true Cretan with a lot of different interests and activities.
25 years ago, he and his already deceased wife Stavroula started a veterinary practice. This task still fulfils his great love for animals.
His enthusiasm for nature is documented in his agricultural activities. He's busy producing a wonderful wine, raki as well as organic olive oil.
Finally, his interest and his hospitality led him to the construction of Elkysti, a small complex of four apartments.
His favourite activity is taking care of his three little daughters, ELeftheria, KYriaki and STIliani while growing up. Their names first letters result in ELKYSTI.

KALAMAKI
Kalamaki is a small settlement with many amenities and good tourist infrastructure. It has the good fortune of being built in the middle of a beautiful sandy beach in the Messara Bay, which extends south to Kommos beach and north to the beach of Kokkinos Pyrgos. The famous ancient city of Phaestos and the archaeological sites of Kommos, Agia Triada and Matala are nearby.
Between its ancient pillars and remnants of thousands of years, Kalamaki looks up and out into the deep blue of the sea and sky.
Nature plays an enormous role in this unique beauty. There are dozens of rare plants on the sandy hills, along with cedars and herbs. On the warm sandy beaches of Messara Bay, one can find the eggs of the Caretta-Caretta turtles.
Finally, near Kalamaki are the beautiful traditional villages Kamilari, Sivas and Pitsidia, and the small towns Timbaki and Mires, all of which have good facilities.
Kamilari, a quiet village in southern Crete
Kamilari is located in southern Crete, very close to Tymbaki, Mires and the seaside villages of Kalamaki and Matala. Kamilari is 4 km from the archaeological site of Phaistos, and is an ideal location for those who want to explore the beautiful Messara Valley with its picturesque villages, rich history and of course the beautiful bays and beaches of southern Crete.
Kamilari is built on top of three hills. It is a peaceful place with panoramic views of the olive groves of the plain of Messara, the peaks of Psiloritis, and the Mediterranean Sea.
The village is very close to the beaches of the region. You will feel the strong traditional nature of its small houses, picturesque alleyways, and unique views. Kamilari has all the characteristics of a typical Cretan village, with its small Main Square, church, and traditional and colourful cafes.

Every Sunday from 8am to 2pm, one can visit the organic market in Kamilari at the Kamilari-Kalamaki crossroad, offering organic and local produce from nearby villages, as well as small arts and crafts jewellery.
The local weekend market in Mires, which takes place every Saturday, is worth a visit. Farmers from the Messara Plain gather here to offer every kind of fruit and vegetable along with other products that will entice the browser.
In recent years, some artists from the Greek mainland and from overseas have settled in Kamilari, and as a result the town offers many art exhibitions.
But above all, in Kalamaki and Kamilari you will find good-natured, smiling and happy people who will take great pleasure in giving you their hospitality and friendship.
