“Stella's Traditional Studios” is a small, eight studios-apartment complex, built exactly right on the top of the amphitheatrical, fertile valley of Kato Zakros. It is situated at a conspicuous location, overlooking the sea high above the tops of the olive trees, which grow lower at the valley.
The sea-shore is 500metres away, quite close for someone to enjoy its scents and glare under the sunlight and far enough to make every “civilized” sound coming from the visitor's cars, fade away. The area's peace and quite is disturbed only by nature’s sounds: birds, cicadas, the wind or the rustling of leaves. One can reach the apartments via a dirty road passing by the Archaeological Site first, and then by the exit of the “Dead's Gorge” (Faragi ton Nekron.
The Apartments are only 150 meters away from the Dead's Gorge exit. This road used to connect Ano zakros with Kato zakros and a visitor “must” either drive or walk along it because the view to the Gorge from it, as she/he moves along its edge, is truly grandiose.
