The Greek Hospitality Spirit Revived

We are a very small team of people,
in the the process of slowly reviving and preserving a very small piece of natural paradise,
seeking to share the original Cretan Hospitality Feeling with all our visitors.

We await you at the end stage of your Myli Gorge Adventure to introduce you to the ultimate sense of piece, quiet and rest,  under our banana, walnut and sycamore trees.

The Cretan Hospitality feeling
(that the first visitors of Crete got to know so well and became so fond of that kept on coming back year after year),
at its best.

What our clients say

“Lovely walk great scenery”

We took a taxi to the start of the gorge which cost 13 euros so cheaper than the other options.

Beautiful walk plenty of shade so even in July heat wasn’t a problem. Stopped at the banana canteen for a drink so friendly and generous we bought a beer,coke and orange juice and was brought a small Greek salad two small bottles of water and a, plate of watermelon all complimentary.

We continued past the gorge and found the road back to town which came out very close to our hotel so next time wouldn’t bother with the taxi would do the walk both ways” .
