Mainland has a wild beauty that amazes every traveler. Theriso, Meskla, Vrises and the Samaria Gorge wait for you to explore them.
Samaria Gorge is the longest gorge in Europe, if you like gorges, walk through this gorge and the experience will be unique. It is a long gorge 16km
and you need about 6 hours to pass it.
The Sarakina Gorge in Meskla (my village,15km from fosvilla)
is one of the smaller gorges in Crete,(you have to walk 10 minutes to reach it) but at the same time, it is one of the most impressive natural sculptures one can encounter. It is literally hidden in a ravine with a unique beauty of cypress trees and plane trees.
Also, it is highly recommended to visit all tavernas in the inland villages of Therisso, Mescla-Zourva, and Drakona for genuine Cretan cuisine.
For an unforgettable nightlife, we couldn’t suggest anything less than Agia Marina(5km from fosvilla) and Platanias (7km from fosvilla). Numerous nightclubs and cocktail bars lay there and wait for you to have fun until the first morning hours.
