Hóra Sfakíon : Michelin's recommendations
Nestling in a creek at the foot of a mountain, this tiny resort is probably one of the most pleasant places to stay on this part of the coast. It caters to some of the tourists who trek through the Samariá Gorge. Consisting of a few stepped streets, a little harbour and a modest pebble beach, Sfakiá (or Hóra Sfakíon) has no other charm than its restful atmosphere, which is particularly pleasant in the evening.
