Amphitheatrically set on the slope of Romanati mountain, 410 m above the sea level and 7 km distance from the shore, overlooking the gorge and the Libyan sea, Pefki village is handily close to the restaurants, bars and shops of Makrygialos, the golden beaches, the trails and the attractions of the south-eastern part of Crete but at the same time it enjoys the tranquility and authenticity of the village life.
Pefki is an old village which has preserved all the typical characteristics of Cretan villages and their typical architecture; small houses close one to another and built of natural materials, cobbled little streets, a church and a “kafeneion” (cafe) – once areas of social interaction.
Eastern Crete is a world of natural wonders. Sea-sculptured coasts, fabulous sandy beaches and deep gorges are contrasted by palm-tree shaded coasts, rugged mountains, silvery olive groves and cedar-covered sandy islets.
An impressive and magnetic landscape imprinted by each era of the island’s rich history and culture: ancient ruins of the glorious Minoan civilization, byzantine churches, Venetian fortresses, historic monasteries and the very unique Cretan customs and traditions.
Crete cannot described with a pen. You have to breath the Cretan air, listen to the fold songs, see the lively local dances performed by agile dancers, drink the local drink “tsikoudia” or “raki”, taste the Cretan cuisine, laze under the Cretan sun!
