A traditional village which has recently become sought after by foreign nationals living in Crete. it has a well known glass blowing factory there and some tavernas and kafenions – although there is no beach there it is situated quite near the sea and therefore some of the properties have very good sea views. Pretty village in the Apokoronos area. In spite of many new houses and villas being built in this beautiful area, the village itself has kept its original character and charm. The villagers are proud of the fact that most of the village scenes of the film "Zorba the Greek" where shot here, and many of the older inhabitants have had minor parts - a fact they are never tired to tell the visitors about!
