In 1982 started a restaurant business, the “KRI-KRI”, and since then I worked very hard to Establish it in among the top ten restaurants in Greece, as it currently rates on the basis of National food experts. I attribute my success to my deep appreciation to Greek culture and, most of all, to the richness of what we call traditional Mediterranean diet.

Crete's only freshwater lake, Lake Kournás (GR: Λίμνη Κουρνά), is relatively large, with a perimeter of 3.5 km. Although almost all touristic leaflets say that it is possible to walk around the lake, that is not true. At least not at the end of the rain season (winter). There is a nature preserve on the Southwest of the lake. But there is a rustic road from the North of the lake to the Hills on the West of the lake too.
