​Vathypetro 4km south of the village of Archanes at an altitude of 555 meters, Greek archaeologists have brought to light a Minoan rural villa of the 16th century b.C. Similar to the Minoan palaces although much smaller, it was probably the residence of a local ruler. Among the most important finds are an olive-press, some big clay jars and a unique wine-press still “in situ” at the south wing of the villa.

Crete had ‘called’ to me yet again after my recent autumnal visit and when we arrived to spring sunshine and warmth, the blossom on trees and the calls of birdsong and the buzz of the bees it was a superb feeling.
