You may wonder why I call my stay at Vritomartis Naturist Resort an experience. Well, simply because it was an experience, and a good one. Anything that has to do with Crete has been a good experience for me so far, so I am probably biased. 😉
What makes Crete and Vritomartis so special? First: the people. I love the Greek people. Cretans know how to make you feel welcome. You’re not a walking wallet (a mistake that Spain has made), but you’re a guest, a friend. The atmosphere in and around Vritomartis is wonderful and relaxed. If I could spend my future days in Crete I would be a happy nudist writer. Vritomartis is special to me because I didn’t do very much there. I didn’t go out on any of the many (also naturist) excursions they offer. I was there to relax and unwind, and that worked out perfectly.
This may give you an idea why.
Another little something that made my stay at this resort special was that I finished writing Naked Crow 2 there, and it gave me the initial inspiration to write Naked Crow 3 – Nagual. Of course, lazing around near the pool and writing wasn’t all I did. Even during times of relaxation I sometimes feel the need to go out and do something. I took a few walks to the nude beach that’s connected to the resort, Filaki Beach. If you want to have a nice time at the water with the convenience of a small bar at hand, go to Filaki Beach. You won’t regret it.
If you want to have some fun around the resort, that too can be arranged. Aqua gym for instance. Low impact, fun and good for you. My favourite however was the archery part:
Imagine great weather, enthusiastic people, a coach who has fun helping everyone learn shooting with bows and arrows, and being naked. How can life be better?
Vritomartis hasn’t seen the last of me yet. And next time I intend to go on a few of the excursions. I’ve read comments on them and they are definitely worth the while!
