“There is this land laying in the middle of a deep blue sea,
Crete… a beautiful, grand water surrounded island.
An island of numerous inhabitants and ninety states. Each nation with its own
Aches and Cretans –sparrow hawk lads- Cydonian and Dorian and Pelasgian men
There Knossos, the famous land,
Where Minoas, Zeus’ comrade
Ruled the island for nine years” ,

continents, the place embracing grand canyons and fertile camps, with the wild
landscape of the White Mountains rising imposingly, is conquering the landscape.
Within a various, but lovely climate, the connecting web of nations and
civilizations has been a place of grand dispute among invaders. Crete still
holds its uniqueness throughout forests and gorges, an autonomous island since
it provides the habitants with excellent goods. Crete is a carrier of a history

paths knowledge, enlightened the world with their spiritual expression. The
largest island of Crete, second in size in the Mediterranean, keeps its
historic, traditional and cultural characteristics untouched, while at the same
time, provides all modern standards for the best hosting of its guests. Crete is
a splendid mixture of wonderful civilizations and cultures of the past, but it
is also a vivid world constantly creating new traditions. There are many great
cities that developed in the northern part of the island, around the important
ports and in the country as well. Crete is separated in four regions: Heraklion,
Lasithi, Rethymnon and Chania Prefectures.

homonymous romantic and hospitable city of “the roses and the jasmines”,

precious days of both the winter and the summer vacations. Two are the more
dominant theories over the name of the beautiful village: Xamoudohori, according
to the locals the name means its land is approached by the winds. The second
theory is related to history: The community might have taken its name by the
Turkish pasha Xamoudi. Xamoudohori is 19 km away from the city of Chania, and it
is part of Platania Municipality. Hourmouzi Byzantio first mentions it in 1842.

inhabited by 80 Christians. During this period of time, many people from the
mountainous areas started to move down and buy Turkish land there so that they
can live permanently there. In 1920 the village is the basis of the homonymous
agricultural Community, inhabited by 257 people. In 1928 Xamoudohori is part of
Kontomari Community with 329 inhabitants. In 1940 Xamoudohori is once more the
