The Galatia Apartments are a small paradise, close to the unique Minoan Archaelogical excavations of Phaistos. Enjoy the tranquility of rural Crete in the village of Agios Ioannis and be same time in the center of the messara.
Plan your trips, have a glass of wine while you relax at your terrace and watch the psiloritis mountains. Agios Ioannis is a perfect base, if you want to explore this area, its wonderful beaches, the culture of the minoan and the romans - the area of the messara offers it all! Agios Ioannis, on the sunny south coast of Crete, lends itself for excursions to both the east and the west side of the island. Buses run between the surrounding towns, villages and tourist features. The whole area is unique as far as culture and scenery are concerned and offers countless recreational activities ranging from relaxing on fantastic beaches, hiking on trails to the surrounding little villages to exploring ancient excavation sites and cloisters. There are plenty of discos and bars in Kalamaki and Matala to satisfy the needs of the night birds! Kalamaki, with its beautiful sandy beaches and promenade with several little tavernas, is about 5 Km away. About 8 Km away there is the glorious long stretch of Comos beach. Another 4 Km further along the coast are the caves of Matala. In the neighbouring village of Kamilari (2 Km away) there is a supermarket with a butcher s shop.
