Katalagari Holidays

A QUAINT HILLSIDE RETREAT

Perched inland among the rolling hills of Crete, Katalagari is a quaint village exuding traditional Cretan charm. Located 17 kilometres southeast of the historic capital city of Heraklion, it offers a peaceful retreat away from the beaches and bustling crowds. 

Wander through the quaint, narrow streets lined with whitewashed houses with flower pots decorating the steps. Visit the Byzantine church of Agios Nikolaos and the historic olive mill, offering insights into the village’s history. You can soak in the serene panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and the Dikti Mountains from various vantage points around the village. 

Katalagari is also known for its local tavernas serving authentic Cretan cuisine and locally produced wine, giving a true taste of the island’s gastronomy. And, if you fancy going somewhere a little livelier, Heraklion is just 20 minutes away by car. With its idyllic, sleepy hillside setting and warm hospitality, Katalagari offers a peaceful escape and an authentic Cretan experience.
