Where you’ll be

Crete Region, Greece

Footscapes of Crete is located near the village of Kástellos, close to the town of Armeni on the road linking Rethymno in the north with Spili further south. We are approximately 15 minutes by car from Rethymno, 2 miles from Armeni and about one mile from Kastellos.

There is a wonderful taverna in Kastellos. The owner, Vassilis is very hospitable and he and his wife serve delicious real Cretan products.

The are more tavernas in Armeni. Armeni also has the convenience of some well stocked supermarkets and a traditional Kafenion and a nice bakery where you can but fresh bread and pastry each day. For the archaeology fans, we are very close to an important late Minoan necropolis.

Our accommodation is situated right on the E4 long distance footpath (it runs past the front gate).

Please note that we are located for peace and quiet! Our studios are in a rural setting, just outside the nearest village. If you like dark, starry skies and only the sound of sheep bells, This accomomodation is probably fit for you. We would recommend the use of a hire car to get around, as the nearest buses run from Armeni which is a 40 minute walk away.

Let us introduce ourselves,

We are Ria Swinkels and Jeroen Wouters.

We are 63 years old and have spend years as social worker and worked in the mental health care sector.
We lived in the south of the Netherlands and for many years we have been totally in love with the beautiful Greece. During our holidays with our mobil-home we visited different parts of Greece. We were amazed of the beauty of the country and the boundless hospitality of the Greeks.

Greeks think otherwise, it's all a bit more "siga siga" (quietly). Filótimo (φιλότιμο) is a word that exists in no other language and literally means "friend of honor ', but in fact it describes a complex set of virtues. By this virtues Greek people try to life. It defines and regulates how one should behave in relation to others. It is mainly about respect and doing the right thing. In its simplest form it means "doing good." It shows what kind of person you are and the way you were raised. Filótimo is a way of life.

We dreamed of it to build a new life here. For years we have been looking for opportunities to begin in this wonderful country something for ourselves.
Since January 2015 we are the proud owners of "Footscapes of Crete".
With our enthusiasm and creativity combined with the Greek way of life, we hope to offer our guests an unforgettable vacation.
