The nearest village is Agalianou, one of just a few traditional villages that nestle into the mountainside along the south coast of Crete between Agia Galini and Plakias. This area is renowned for its stunning beauty, unspoilt coastline and numerous quiet yet picturesque beaches. The region is becoming very popular for holiday/second homes, especially for those who prefer the more traditional Cretan countryside and a peaceful location. Any new building may have to meet local planning restrictions and be built of or faced with natural stone with pitched and tiled roof. Approx 25 minutes to Spili, 2 hours Iraklion/Chania airports.
