The traditional little village of Vrisses lies approx. 30 km from Chania town. The old
village square with its tall graceful plane trees, cluster of tavernas and kafenions is the
perfect place to observe Cretan village life. Vrisses is also well renowned for its
particularly delicious yogurt. The four recently built Aspalathos villas are about 3 km from
the village, set high on a hillside, with magnificent panoramic views over the tapestry of
rolling countryside dotted with tiny villages, and on to the distant sea; on a clear day one
can see all the way to Rethymno.
The village of Georgioupolis, approx. 10 km away, has a beautiful long silken sandy beach,
and a good choice of tavernas, shops and tourist amenities. The glorious country side and the
peaceful position of Aspalathos are simply
delightful, and offer the very best setting for a relaxing and rejuvenating holiday.
