Cretans express their feelings not only in words, but also through music, singing and dancing. So, let yourself be drawn into the Cretan joy of living and join us to the traditional village of Kato Karouzana, for a night that is bound to be unforgettable.
Upon arriving in this traditional village, you have the time to explore it, walk through its narrow alleys, smell the beautiful aromas of the night flowers and the jasmine that are all over the place and receive the hospitality –and the treats- of the locals.
Later on, you are invited to a feast that celebrates tradition and the rich produce of the Cretan soil. Taste the delicious dishes with the cheese, the rusk, the virgin olive oil, the meat, the honey, the fresh vegetables and sip the home-made wine and raki, while listening to the sounds of the lyre and lute, watching the precise steps of the dancers, the acrobatic movements of the men, the colorful costumes of the women and the austere national dress of the men. You are also welcome to try the steps of the Cretan and Greek dances yourself!
