I love this area! Vatolakkos village, sitting at the bottom of White Mountains. When you drive towards Omalos, at the intersection take a right turn. Narrow bridge will let you into the traditional Cretan villages.
Even during the hot Cretan summers, the region stays green and there is a refreshing breeze coming from the surrounding hills.
Autumn can be magical as well with its olives, oranges, pomegranates and AVOCADO!
I just couldn't resist to take a few from the tree growing right next to the village road.
You can combine your trip there with a visit to a great and picturesque Winery Manousakis!
