A small village in the heart of the famous Lassithi Plateau. Very close to Tzermiado and Agios Georgios and next door to Avrakonte. An agriculturally based village with its inhabitants largely providing for themselves off the land. Lassithi Plateau has a reputation as being only for day trippers, but this beautiful vast plateau area offers so much for nature lovers and hikers and those appreciating the true traditional lifestyle of the Cretans. There is also a horse riding school and a cultural centre with various shops selling locally produced goods such as ceramics, weaves, woodwork along with a taverna and cafeteria.
