Kamares Houses

I woke up to the chirping sound of crickets. The day before, I had arrived at the authentic location of Kamares Houses on Crete. I got out of bed and walked over to the kitchen to make myself some breakfast.

It wasn’t long before I was enjoying my home-made breakfast by the pool. The sun was warming up my face. I had just closed my eyes for a moment when I suddenly heard my name. ‘Eliza!’ It was Roula who had come to wish me a good morning. ‘Did you sleep well?’, she asked. ‘Like a baby’, I replied smiling. She waved and left me to it. Roula and Kostas had told me the day before that Kamares Houses is a historic location with remnants from the 14th century. It used to be a 14th-century mansion with a Venetian colonist for an owner. How unique! I got my slippers and set out to explore Kamares Houses.

As I was roaming around the Kamares Houses estate, I barely knew where to look. Everything is so green. Beautiful plants, trees and bushes everywhere. I had rarely felt such a connection with nature. That is when I noticed a path in the distance with impressive stone arcs. Roula and Kostas had told me about them the day before. I took a closer look and was sure of it; these were the arcs from the Venetian era. Kamaras Houses really is a historic location!
