Cressa Ghitonia Village is a unique reconstructed neighbourhood of the 1800’s found in a picturesque village of Eastern Crete, Sfaka, Lassithi. Eastern Crete is famous for its authentic and well-preserved mountain villages, its beautiful landscapes and its virgin, untouched character. Vai Palm Tree Beach forest, the famous Toplou Monastery, Sitia town and many other signature destinations of Eastern Crete are at a driving distance from Cressa Ghitonia Village. The beach is located 6 km away from the hotel. It is located in the highest part of the mountainous village of Sfaka, just 6 km from one of the beaches of the fish-village of Mochlos and other neighbouring attractions.
Vai is famous for its palm forest located right on the beach. It is the largest palm forest in Crete and these palms are endemic Cretan palms (Phoenix theophrastii) and were not imported inadvertently by Saracene pirates (as some would like you to believe).
