Local dance night

Cretan Mountain Festival

Why not discover the real Cretan Folklore Night? It’s the best way to celebrate Greek Style.

On the village square of a beautiful  small mountain village we meet the friendly Cretan restaurantowner who invite us to enjoy a typical tasty traditional dinner and offers a glass of the local Cretan firewater “ Raki “.

A stroll around the lovely village will allow you to catch a glimp of the rural life of a Cretan village and, at the same time, put you in the mood for the evening ahead. Normally the unique church on the square is open.

On the village square, in front of a unique chuch, your meal will be accompanied by the melodies of the Lyra and the Bouzouki (Cretan and Greek traditional music instruments).

You see the dancers in their traditional costumes and witness the grace of their performing a variety of Cretan and Greek folklore dances. It might sound unbelievable , but this is really your chance to watch “Zorba the Greek” dancing on the top of a wineglass, on top of a bottle, on top of ... Well you’ll have to see it for yourselves !

As you get in the mood why not join in and learn a few of the Greek steps? By the end of the evening you’ll think you are as good as “Zorba”. If you want to eat, drink and dance like a local, this is a fabulous evening you should not miss.
