This is the sea... (of November)

5th of November today and still the water is so warm....
This is a photo from the sea. It's a strange photo taken from my mobile and as I was in the water I couldn't see what I was taking. But is was so nice... swimming in November I mean. And mind that I'm not the bravest of swimmers!!
Anyway, summer-autumn period closes in a few days, but we 'll be open all year long...

October in Triopetra

October (along with May) is probably the best month for staying at Triopetra and enjoy our beach. The weather is still good, sometimes cloudy the sea is warm and the beach has very few people, gives you the feeling that belongs to you. But the taverns are still open till 28th of October! And the rain never lasts long at these days. So enjoy it!

Mini Market near Three Rock!

This is good news!
Now, at last, there is a mini market very close to Three Rock Studio and Triopetra beach.
It is the mini market Zampelina and has a lot of things that may be very useful to our guests.
You can buy, bread, milk, yogurt, beers and a lot of groceries.
You can also stay there for a beer, or coffee.
The owner seems a very friendly person and can also cook you a nice pizza if you want! We taste it already!

So this is good news because the mini market is just two kilometres from Three Rock Studio on the road to (or from) Akoumia village. Till now the closest mini market was the very nice market in Agios Pavlos beach (7 kilometres) and then the mini market at Akoumia (11 kilometres) and then if you want a really big super market you can always go to Spili (20 kilometres).
Of course we still think that ir always better to stop in a large sumper market at Rethymno (45 kilometres), when you pass by from the city.
Zampelina mini market can help you stay close to the beach and not to drive for long to find at least the basics!

The Doors of the Old Town of Rethymno


This is calendar with doors of the old town of Rethymno. 
This is not a kind of album including all the doors of the old town. We didn't choose the more flashy nor the most impressive ones. We chose these particular doors because every one of them has something to recount about the life of the city over time. So this calendar is a way to learn things about the city and also to travel in time by ''opening'' if you want, a different door every day!

Artifacts/ The Art of handmade ceramics in Rethymno

To   Αrtifacts by Omodamos  εδώ και μια δεκαετία αποτελεί ένα χώρο για την σύγχρονη Ελληνική λαϊκή τέχνη, που μπορεί να είναι διασκεδαστική, ευχάριστη, εναλλακτική και δικαιούται το σεβασμό που το γρήγορο κέρδος του τουρισμού της έχει στερήσει.
Συνδυάζοντας μια σειρά από δημιουργίες μερικών από τους πιο καταξιωμένους κι ενδιαφέροντες σύγχρονους Έλληνες κεραμίστες με πολλές δικές μας ιδέες και εφαρμογές στον πηλό και άλλα υλικά, θέλουμε να αποτελούμε μια βάση επικοινωνίας και συνάντησης για ανθρώπους που αγαπούν την τέχνη και την έκφραση.  Εδώ μπορείτε να βρείτε μια ποικιλία από αντικείμενα που έχουν μια ιστορία να πουν και να ενισχύσετε την προσπάθεια μας.


Artifacts by omodamos over a decade now is a place for the modern Greek folk art and craft, which can be artistic, fun, interesting, fresh, versatile and entitled to a respect that leveling fast and easy profit tourism has deprived.
Combining  a series of collections from known and interesting contemporary Greek potters, with a lot of our creations and ideas in clay and other materials, we want to be a base for communication and artistic expression. Here you can find a variety of objects that have a story to say, and support our effort.

Beforelight |  Urban Lightscapes

Urban Lightscapes, an initiative of the artist lighting group beforelight, is a European project whose aim is to explore and experiment on urban lighting and its impact on city identity. It is an action that embraces visual and urban lighting with architecture and active citizenship and connects to local communities, academics, artists and light professionals, through three successive actions in three European countries. Two public light installations, lasting from July to September 2014, in two neighborhoods of Maastricht in the Netherlands, form the core of Urban Lightscapes. The interventions Mosaic and Color ex Machina, are the culmination of a research process that started in Athens in November 2014, with a European symposium in Onassis Cultural Centre and continued in Barcelona with a three-day experimentation workshop in the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia.
Urban Lightscapes is initiated and organized by Beforelight, in collaboration with the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia and Stichting SoAP, and has been awarded a European Collaboration Grand by the European Cultural Foundation.
The publication for Urban Lightscapes is funded by NEON.
BEFORELIGHT is a Greek-based creative group formed to experiment with light. They have presented their work at the Biennale of Contemporary Art in Thessaloniki, the Folklore Museum of Thessaloniki, the Rotterdam Museum Night, the Benaki Museum, the Theocharakis Foundation, the Eugenides Foundation, the foyer of the Acropolis Museum and has created lighting interventions in public spaces in Athens, Thessaloniki, Volos, Chania, Rotterdam and Maastricht.
