Words fail to capture the true essence of this land. To fully understand Kissamos one must experience it with all their senses. To witness the stunning mix of mountainous, lowland and seaside scenery, to spot unique species of rare flora and fauna, to discover ancient worlds. To take in the scent of the sea, and of the air filled with the aromas of all sorts of herbs, to taste the pure produce of Cretan land: olive oil, honey, wine, vegetables, fruit, meat, fish and raki, soaked in the zest of the local people, all mystically involved with this very soil, across centuries.
To hear the sweet voices of local singsong, ‘Mantinades’. To listen to everyday conversation regarding anything from legend to folklore, from tradition to history. To relish the hospitality and marvel at the majestic Cretan land that lies in the crossroads of three continents, fearless and life-giving, beyond all expectation.
