Kamilari, a quiet village in southern Crete Kamilari is located in the south of Crete, very close to Tymbaki, Mires and the coastal villages of Kalamaki and Matala. Located 4 km from the archaeological site of Phaistos, Kamilari is an ideal place for those who want to explore the beautiful Messara Valley with its picturesque villages, rich history and beautiful coves and beaches of southern Crete. Kamilari is built on three hills. It is a quiet place with panoramic views of the olive groves of the plain of Messara, the peaks of Psiloritis and the Mediterranean Sea. The village is very close to the beaches of the region. You will experience the impressive, traditional character of the small houses, the picturesque streets and their unique views. It has all the characteristics of a typical Cretan village with a small main square, the church and the traditional, colorful coffees. The name of the village, myths and history "Kamilaris" means camel driver and is a name that dates back to Byzantine times. Some estimates refer Kamilaris and the castle guard to the year 1583. But the story goes back much further here. In 1959 a vaulted grave was discovered near the village, dating back to the Bronze Age (2000-3000 years before our era). We also have our local myths. In the settlement of Metochi, just outside the village of Kamilari, lived Epimenides, one of the seven sages of ancient Greece. Legend has it that he spent 57 years in a deep sleep. Our village is well preserved. In the years in which Crete was plagued by raids, Kamilari proved to be an ideal place - on a hill that was protected from damage. How to get there Kamilari is approximately 68 km from Heraklion International Airport (HER). From the airport, take first the national road 90 (E75) to Rethymno and from there the national road 97 to Moires. Drive for about 50 km and cross Moires City towards Timbaki City. About 8 km to Moires (500 m before reaching Timbaki) you will find a Nissan car station on the right. Turn left here and take the road to Kamilari for another 4.5 km. Just before the center (Orelia Cretan sign) turn right towards Kalamaki village and after 900 meters at the sign "Orelia Cretan Villas & Deluxe Apartments" turn left. At the top of the hill you reach the estate after 700 meters.
