About Kato Zakros retreat
Kato Zakros lies in the most eastern part of Crete and is probably the last original and non-touristic location on the island. The place is peaceful and unhurried, surrounded by inspiring untouched countryside. The bay was active since Minoan ages and Minoans build there their fourth founded palace, the ruins of which are one of the major attractions for visitors.
For those who enjoy trekking, another major attraction is the famous ‘Gorge of the dead’, whose entrance is just 150 meters from our studios and ‘Pelekita’ (at 1hour walk), an almost unexplored cave 350 meters long, with amazing stalactite and stalagmite decoration.
The beaches of Kato Zakros are covered either by pebbles or by fine sand, while it takes just 15 minutes drive to explore the nearby sandy beaches of Xerokampos.
The stone and wood studios are simply and rustically furnished, with a private bathroom, and an outside private sitting place. You can stay in a shared 2 or 3 beds studio, in a private studio, or in a double bed studio according to your choice.
All studios are equipped with cooking facilities, while all the basic ingredients and local delicacies are provided to you to prepare your own breakfast. There will be no need to buy any bottled water, as one of the best water of Crete, straight from the Zakros source, is running through the tap.
Of course there is free wi-fi and air-conditioning at every studio.
In the gardens you will find sunbeds to enjoy the Cretan sun and hammocks under pergolas and trees to relish in tranquility and peace.
The beach is 500 meters away and can be reached with a short drive or a beautiful walk through vegetable gardens that facilitate the locals and the few taverns.
