Aspropotamos

 (white river)

is an

enchanting valley, framed by rough rocky mountains,

in which flows a stream active

only until

spring

(season in which have been taken all the

Καιρός σήμερα και πρόγνωση καιρού για κάθε περιοχή

photographs of this page), ideal period to visit it and to enjoy its many spontaneous blooms and its mild temperature.

The beautiful

view

or the climate

are not the only reasons which

make of Aspropotamos

  a deserving place to be discovered, but its houses

that here,

like in few other places of

Crete,

 are of traditional architecture,

nearly all

perfectly restored and conserved,

with great passion for the particular and a obvious care in the choice of the materials

(only local wood

and stones,

often selected

one by one);

giving the chance

to the tourist, in the space of an hour of easy walk, to make

a true jump in the past on the traces

of a peasant

Cretan culture almost disappeared.

 

During this walk around Aspropotamos

do not miss to visit

  the artistic laboratory

Stausa

and here you will find, in one of the most beautiful country houses of the valley, a young  Italian-Greek  couple that lives here all year round working to their original artistic creations.

From Xerocambos you can reach Aspropotamos in about 50 minutes drive, on asphalted roads, following direction Ziros - Papagiannades - Lithines and then Makrigialos where you will easy find indications for the road that leads also to Pefki.
