‘The most unique and intimate classical music Summer festival in Europe’
The Sunday Times Online

Listen to our music!

Our unique music festival offers you an unforgettable opportunity to experience live performances by world-class artists in the beautiful and intimate setting of Villa Casa dei Mezzo, Makrigialos, Crete.

This event makes an important cultural contribution to the summer season in Makrigialos and is the only annual classical chamber music festival held on Crete.

“The programme is very interesting all together, and somehow tight - in the very good sense of the word - compact, so to speak. Exciting!”

Tickets may be purchased in advance from the White Houses office (by the old harbour) or from Villea Village.
