Sfakia Village

Sfakia is a small fishermen’s village located south of Crete. During the summer, it’s full of life because at its small port the ferry boats dock, that carry trekkers from Agia Roumeli that is in the end of Samaria Gorge. From this village small boats begin for the graphical, cosmopolitan and isolated village of Loutro (there is no road to this village; you can travel only via boat). Sfakia is visible from the sea, this village is built amphitheater above the bay. Multiple buildings of traditional architecture have survived. Small alleyways, one and two story houses with petite windows and doors, indoor “ayli” with old wells and stone ovens.
