Zaros is everything you’ve ever imagined a getaway to Greece would be. This picturesque village is situated in the sloping foothills of Mount Psiloritis, where you can gain a refreshing insight into the authentic, traditional Greek way of life. Most of the friendly locals in the village work in the agricultural industry, producing the ripe vegetation, olive oil and wine that the area is so well known for. Many people of Zaros also make Cretan arts and crafts and there are some wonderful workshops where tourists can buy traditional crafts like paintings, musical instruments and pottery.

You’ll find many charming churches in the village, including the churches of Agios Georgios and Agia Kiriaki, which are painted with beautiful frescoes and particularly popular with keen sightseers. Another wonderful sight not to be missed is the quaint watermill which has been in full working order, servicing the town since the 16th Century.
