About the neighbourhood
Afrata sits very central to western Crete with Chania 25 minutes to the east with its beautiful harbour, shops and local markets. To the west, Kastelli is a busy town with ferries to Gramvouser and Balos with fabulous sandy beaches. Elefanisi and Falasana further west have fantastic beaches and are all within easy reach. There are two good supermarkets in easy reach. Local footpaths allow access to flora and fauna, orchids, herbs and mountain greens. Birds from raptors, to finches, egrets, hoopoes and songbirds abound. In Platanias there is plenty of clubs, bars and tavernas and Kolimbari has some excellent restaurants. The light in the area is amazing and many artists and photographers take advantage of this.
Getting around
We recommend car-hire, there is how ever, a bus service in the morning, returning in the afternoon to the village. From Kolimpari there is an excellent inexpensive air conditioned bus service. In Chania there is an Hop on and Hop Off Bus service for 15.00€. a day. Also there's the Tourist Holiday Train in Kolimpari which visits all tourist destinations and also comes to the village.
