Horafi Villa , near Vrisses Vrisses, Apokoronas, Chania
Vrisses, Apokoronas Chania
Vrisses is set on the banks of the Almyros or Tris Almyri river with constant running water, which runs down the valley to Georgioupolis. This shady little town, with its streets lined with old plane trees is a relatively new village, developed after 1925 on two 'hania' (inns) which were there to accommodate the merchants and travellers to and from Sfakia. Today it is still an important crossroads leading to the south, with a junction off the E75 highway leading south.
It is set in beautiful natural surroundings, in a valley full of trees due to the Vrissano river which flows through its centre, making it a nice place to escape the summer heat. In the shade of old giant plane trees, this lovely setting has small tavernas and cafés offering traditional Cretan dishes. To the east of the village stands an ancient bridge dated from the Greek-Roman times. The bridge is called the Elliniki Kamara (The Greek Arch).
Two important village feasts take place on the 7th July, in honour of Ayia Kyriaki, and the Assumption of the Virgin Mary at Alikambos on the 15th August. Vrisses is also renowned for its quality of milk products such as cheese and yoghurt.
