    Our day starts from Heraklion city heading to the south coast of Crete, passing through the traditional villages of the mainland (Avgeniki, Agia Varvara, Agioi Deka, Kapariana, Plouti, Moires) and areas with dense vegetation, fresh aromas, and unique views.

    Our first stop will be at a well-known and decorated winery. We will meet the owner, who will welcome us to his establishments, giving us a tour of the winery and the cellar. A wine tasting of 5 indigenous wines accompanied by traditional rusks, olive paste, rusks and 3 types of local cheeses.

    The amazing route and views continue until we reach the historic monastery of “Moni Odigitrias”. The Holy Patriarchal and Stavropegian Monastery of Odigitria is located on the mountain range of the Asterousia Mountains in the south of the prefecture of Heraklion, which are the “Mount Athos” of Crete. Asterousia was the cradle of Christianity and developed in this rich monastic and ascetic tradition centered on Agiofarago and Martsalo. It was founded in the 14th century and is related to the Kallergida family to which it belonged. It is considered one of the oldest monasteries in Crete since it is mentioned in a document of the Duke of Chandakas (Heraklion) in 1393. The monastery also includes a number of hermitages and chapels with remarkable frescoes. The unique view from the Cave will inspire you to take pictures, combining the highest mountain tops of Crete with the beautiful valley.

    Our third stop will be at an undisclosed location (Beach), which only locals know about and can be reached with 4X4 vehicles. Enjoy the privacy of the beach as well as the clear waters of south Crete. A quick swim will be an idea to cool off from our trip before we head to the famous Hippy Beach of Matala.

    Afterward, our amazing route continues and, on the way, up to our fourth stop, which is the world’s famous Matala Beach. At lunchtime, you have the opportunity to swim in the crystal-clear waters of the South Cretan Sea in the former fishing village of Matala. Here you can have lunch and free time to walk around and discover all about Matala as well as take a walk to the world-famous caves on the rocks of the cliff.
