Filomathia Language Centre - Location of School

Armeni, a village within the area of Apokoronas in Chania
Filomathia Greek Language Centre is set in Armeni, a picturesque village within the area of Apokoronas in Chania Prefecture in Crete. Just 12 Km from the city centre of Chania and very close to other well-known holiday resorts like Kalyves, Geogioupolis, Vamos, Almyrida, Plaka and many more, Armeni consists the ideal environment to combine studies in Greek language and summer vacation in Greece.

How to get here?

First of all, one has to get to Chania airport or Souda port. Then, reaching Apokoronas can be either a bit of adventure or a really relaxing route. If you choose to travel by bus, you will have to get to the city centre first and then take a bus from the central station. Otherwise, delivery in a taxi or having your holiday car waiting for you at the airport or port can be arranged easily when planning your vacations. Ask us if you have trouble finding the right links!

What is there to do?

Thousands of tourists visit Apokoronas every year. Choosing one of the many villages as a starting point and then exploring other sites around is a very common practice. The natural beauty of the area is a major attraction factor; there are gorgeous, sandy beaches along the coast, footpaths of exquisite beauty, caverns, gorges as well as wetland habitats (Kournas Lake). Have a look on the Net to see for yourself!

As for entertainment, there are plenty of traditional restaurants and cafes in every village where one can taste the famous Cretan cuisine and mingle with the locals. In more developed places like Kalyves, Almyrida or Georgioupolis one can enjoy night life and shopping as well as local events and festivals. Such places also offer many more amenities to ensure comfortable vacations, like doctor’s surgeries, pharmacies, post offices and banks. For a more cosmopolitan taste of life, of course, one has to spend some time in the city of Chania - there is bus connection to and from but hiring a taxi or a holiday car would be even more convenient.
