Koutouloufari





Koutouloufari is a village on the Greek island of Crete, not much more than one kilometre from the large tourist town of Chersonissos. While the harbour town of Chersonissos consists mainly of new houses built in recent decades, Koutouloufari is a traditional village with narrow streets and a beautiful church. From Koutouloufari you have a beautiful panoramic view of Chersonissos and the Mediterranean Sea.

Directions: Koutouloufari is half an hour walk from Hersonissos (from Limenas Chersonisou port). The way is a little exhausting, because it goes steeply uphill in many places. Parking is difficult in summer in Koutouloufari due to the narrow streets, but should be possible 200 to 300 meters outside the center. A larger car park is signposted several times in the village.

Koutouloufari has fully grown together with the neighbouring village of Piskopiano. The two villages look like a long village. Many tourists who come to Koutouloufari on foot or by rental car stop at one of the many taverns in the village. There are also several cafes, at least one supermarket and many other shops. They sell jewellery, local souvenirs for tourists, clothes and shoes.

A good tavern in the village is "The Alchemist" in the centre. We enjoyed the salad "Twisted Caesar´s", the prawns in garlic as starter and the traditional moussaka as main course. We also enjoyed the other tavern we visited. In the Taverna Mythos there is classical Greek cuisine with the typical starters and meat dishes like chicken filet, pork chops or souvlaki.

A nice cafe with healthy snacks like fruit salad or the famous Greek yoghurt with honey is the "The Half Note" in the middle of the village.

Koutouloufari is a nice village in general, but today it is largely dominated by tourism. Those who want to see a traditional village without tourist infrastructure on Crete have to drive further away from the sea into the mountains. For this, for example, the many villages on the round road around the Lassithi plain offer themselves.

If you don't like the party places near the sea like Chersonissos or Stalis, you can take a room in one of the bigger hotels or smaller pensions in Koutouloufari. The accommodation Kostas & Maria and the Casa Bianca Boutique Hotel, for example, enjoy an excellent reputation.

Another possible spelling of the village is Kotolofari. This is how the place name, which is difficult for Germans, is pronounced.
