The greatest influence to Medieval Cretan culture derives from the Venetian administration (Republic of Venice) in the years 1204-1669 (for almost 400 years) when Venice was a rich and dominant naval empire in the Mediterranean Sea. During that period, Crete, in an era of general brutality of the Middle Ages had the rear privilege to meet a very compatible human culture with its own, the humanism of the Venetian Renaissance that produced Greek poets and artists like Vitsentzos Kornaros (Erotokritos) and Domenikos Theotokopoulos (also called El Greco).

Agios Dimitrios beach won a BLUE FLAG. Agios Dimitrios is the small Chapel in front of Villa Stella. The beach of Agios Dimitrios is our beach straight ahead in front of Villa Stella behind the Chapel. That means it is a very clean and organized beach and the cleanest in Stalis along with one another (Nana beach) at the other end of Stalis. You can enjoy this beach just 70-100 meters from our entrance. Some bungalows of beach hotels are more far away from this beach than we are (because many of them are huge).
