The village of Kalamaki is situated on the Southern side of Crete 65 Km southwest of the city of Heraklion, between Timpaki and Mires. It was built during the 1980’s, although the first houses were not built until the 1960’s. Far away from mass-tourism, Kalamaki maintains it’s unique traditional character.
