Why visit Amari?


Far from the bustle of city life, there is an inland village nestled in the mountains where the setting sun bathes Crete's highest peak in glorious pink. Amari offers a peace and serenity untouched by tourism - a haven for those seeking to experience the rhythms of village life. It is a place to relax and renew.  Life slows down, worries dissipate and the silence is broken only by the sounds of insects, birds and the rustling wind in the olive groves.  

In spring and summer, the abundant flora and fauna fill the senses as well as the stomach.  Food is at the centre of life in Crete and Amari offers the finest in Cretan cuisine using locally produced cheeses, olives, honey, grapes and wine.

Amari moves to its own rhythm - nature's rhythm.
