Vrisses has only been in existence since 1925, yet is a very typical and traditional working / farming village. Set on the Vryssano River, which has lovely, shady Plane trees on its banks, and tavernas and cafes under the trees. Perfectly situated between Chania and Rethymnon (about 30 minutes drive to either), and on the road that leads over the foothills to the Imbros Groge (about 30 minutes drive) and to Chora Sfakion on the south coast (about 45 minutes drive). Vrisses is surrounded by many quaint hamlets, and is the perfect starting point for discovering many different areas of Crete. Famous for its delicious yoghurt and honey, the village itself has tavernas, kafenion, 2 bakeries, a butcher, 2 super markets, a bank, 2 petrol stations, a pharmacy, as well as other shops. Direct access to the National Highway, 5 minutes by car to Vamos, 8 minutes to Georgioupolis, and 15 minutes to Kalives.
