Kerames



This village in the municipality of Lambi counts 254 inhabitants. It lies at altitude of 300 m and is situated 43 km away from Rethymnon. This old settlement is recorded in the Venetian censi of the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as in the Turkish and Egyptian censi. The village probably owes its name to the word Potter in Greek.

A resident of the village, Konstantinos Spyridakis, founded an interesting folklore museum with a rich collection of coins, arms belonging to Cretan fighters and other works of art. In the little traditional village there are two souvlaki outlets, with a mini market 2 km far away in Ammoudi.The unspoilt and secluded environment combined with the excellent local cuisine inspires every visitor.It is far from the famous tourist resorts, while Spili with the great variety of shops, tavernas, and amenities can be found in 20km distance. Exploring the general region one can come across with beaches and hidden coves that preserve their natural character without human interruption. The beautiful beaches of Triopetra and Palm Beach are close.

The fishing port of Agia Galini, the charming gorge of Agios Antonios and the ancient monastery of Preveli are worth visiting. In a short driving distance the Amari valley lieswith Plane trees, cool springs and narrow whitewashed lanes and kafenions. The area is rich in wildlife, flora and fauna.

Just 3 kilometres below this traditional hillside village, Agia Fotini is very much part of it. The villagers frequently visit for a meal or just a walk, and guests will be welcome in any of the three kafenions where they can enjoy a cold beer or a perfectly made Greek coffee - and perhaps a game of backgammon with the locals. As well as two kafenions, the village square, which you will find if you wander through the old, narrow streets of white washed houses, also has a spring and a shop for basic supplies.
