Koumos – Surprising Handmade Discovery

Koumos - Surprising Handmade Discovery

On my traveling through Greece I visited a lot of Greek Islands in Mediterranean Sea. The list is endless but you need to go and visit the biggest, Crete. When you step on this island you will feel that is different than other islands by culture, music, food, attractions and people. Crete has a lot of attractions worth to visit but you can`t miss one unique place.

I heard about one place west out of Kalyves – Koumos which was made by one man by his own hands. Literally He made that place from stone and different things that He collects through time.  It`s not only has floors, walls and roof that are decorated with stones. Koumos has also a lot of handmade sculptures. All of this is lifetime`s work of just one man.

Koumos unique stone place

In Koumos you have tavern constructed by stones, several tables and benches in the amazing garden, a coffee room and everything is built by one man and crafted of pebble and stone. You can take brake with homemade food and Greek warm hospitality. Inspired from time this man shows his art on amazing sculptures and ideas. You will walk through small buildings, garden under trees and sculptures surrounded by sounds of peace.

Koumos is perfect place for one day trip and explore the hidden beauties of this place. You can arrange your day to go on the beach in the morning and after you can go on lunch and relax walking through beautiful gardens and attractions in Koumos. So use your chance and visit Koumos on your holiday in Crete, Greece.It`s worth to visit this place. And for more if you like to see about Koumos just visit TripAdvisor site.
