Karouzanos is a village in the mountains, close to Kastelli. A traditional village preserving all those qualities of village life. We will be able to reach it winding through the mountains by a very scenic road. We will also, have the chance to take a glimpse of the rural life in a Cretan village by walking around this lovely settlement.
By the time we are there you can take a stroll around the village at the delightful village paths, through arches strewn with bougamvillias. Seek out the locals and share a drink or two in a cafenion (local café).You can also visit the local Greek Orthodox Church and light a candle or you can try to find a bargain in the handcraft shop.
