The neighborhood
Augusta farmhouse is set on a hilltop with 4000 acres of land surrounding it, filled with orange groves, avocado trees, olive groves, a river, goats and other farm animals, in the verdant semi-mountainous village of Deres in Platanias municipality with many springs and the source of the Tavronitis river. Located just 32 km from the city of Chania (with its historic Old Town and famous Venetian port and lighthouse), it is minutes by car from the main village, where there is a café and tavern, and 13 km from the beach.
Deres is a peaceful little village set in a quiet natural agricultural area. The river runs through the village, lined with plane trees and wild mountains, idyllic scenery. Stone houses and tiny churches dot the village. Deres is on the way to the southern beach resort of Sougia (40 km), and there are many excursions to be taken from here, including Paleohora, Elafonisi, Falasarna, and Balos Beach and Lagoon.
For some culture, the fortress Metochi is an impressive historical structure, a complex of buildings of the Venetian period that still survives.
Another experience not to be missed are the traditional festivals and celebrations that are organized four times a year from early July to early September. Here one has the opportunity to enjoy the Cretan hospitality and to taste local treats, namely honey, cheese, wine, xerotigana sweets and the famous raki, the traditional Cretan spirit.
The permanent residents of the village cultivate olives, oranges, chestnuts, honey, and they also produce charcoal in the traditional way, as well as farm sheep and goats.
Nearby there is an equestrian club offering visitors the chance to learn how to ride a horse or to simply take a horse ride.
The story of Deres has its roots in the period of the Venetian Rule, and later, according to the tradition, when the village passed under the command of Augusta Theodora, the wife of the Byzantine Emperor Theophilos, the village took the designation Augusta, in honor of the Emperor’s wife. In an ecclesiastical bronze tray dating from 1857, which is hosted in the church of the Savior, there is an inscription with the name “Augusta” and in brackets, the later name of the village (Deres).
The designation Deres was attributed to the village by the Turks: “dere” in Turkish means ‘stream of water’ and it was attributed due to the fact that the village is located on the banks of Tavronitis river.
