Summer. We don't need to tell you about the beaches and the landscape, because you probably know that already. But did you know what else goes on in summer?

Traditional sheep shearing - mostly a men's event with raki!

August is village festival month. There's always a full moon party in Kastellos on the night of the August full moon (a traditional must-do for Greeks).

In Armenoi, the village festival is usually on the 6th August and always features an excellent Cretan music band complete with lyra player. Armenoi is famous for its excellent dancers of all ages.
