Gavalohori is a working rural village, still retaining its unique personality - relax with the pace of Cretan life. 

Many of the lovely old buildings have been restored, including the Folk Museum, which chronicles the history of the village - an interesting record of culture and handicrafts. The local Women’s Co-operative is actively reviving traditional handicrafts, examples of which can be bought in their shop in the village square. 

The village centre has three good tavernas, well stocked shops and a bakery. Sometimes live traditional Cretan folk music is played on Summer evenings.

At the foot of the White Mountains, this is the greenest region of Crete. Being close to Chania international airport and the ferry port at Souda, our houses are easily reachable by direct charter flights in the Summer, or by internal flight or ferry from Athens all year round.
