Flisvos is located very close to the well known (famous) fortress of Frangokastello in the Southwest of Crete. Originally the fort served as military base for the Venetians, to fight against their enemies from the seaside and served as fortification against the Sfakia-people, but the Sfakiotians always offered massive resistance and were fighting for their right of property. Later the Turks came and captured the fortress for their own military aims. As the Cretan People where fighting against the Turk occupying power- the Sfakiots always played a primary, essential part. That´s how Frangokastello ended up being the scenery of cruel warfare by that time. Several hundert Sfakiotian aimed to attack the Fortress back in 1828 headed by Chatzimichalis Daliánis. They managed to assault and barricade the fort and fighting for a long period against the Turk army. However the superiority of Turkish soldiers attained the victory of this bloody, cruel fight against the Cretans and raid the fort after a long siege. All Cretans were brutally killed and their battle-cry “freedom or death” once more took its toll. The historical monument at close eastern range to the fortification wall should bear this historical scene in mind. Flisvos accommodation started with only 3 rooms, but over the years we expanded our accommodation facilities and offer besides rooms in our guesthouse also spacious and well equipped apartments (1+2 bedrooms apartments) and 2 houses for vacation rental right onshore in the Soutwest of Crete.
