Vafes is a very special village with its white washed homes that creates a very authentic Grecian as well as Cretan atmosphere. Worth visiting is the village taverna situated in a lovely renovated stone building with a huge fireplace and natural arches. The road through Vafes leads all the way up to the hamlet of Arifiti and then stops as the mountain terrain becomes inaccessible. All necessary services can be found in Vrisses, just 5 km away. The closest beach is in Georgioupolis.
