Being a naturist makes me feel closer to the Nature that I am part of. I love being exposed to the air and the sun. But Denmark is not a warm country, so it is clothes off / clothes on all summer.
When I first came to Vritomartis 9 years ago, it was a completely new experience for me. To be able to walk naked in the sun, enjoying the garden, just feeling completely relaxed – it was wonderful. I loved all the different activities too; archery, chess, tennis, exercise in the pool, or just relaxing and soaking up the sunshine.
We set off in 2014, after thinking back and forth a couple of times, to book a stay at Vritomartis for our second honeymoon during July 2015. Coming from Finland you would expect us to be easy-going skipping around in the buff but it took some mental preparation especially for the male part even being the initiator to the idea. The inner Hercules was fighting the idea of showing the outer Hercule Poirot without the usual suit to cover up all the good life that had been collected over the last 20 odd years.
It was our first time in Crete and we really enjoyed this beautiful island and although we have a pool at our garden in The Netherlands the weather is not always cooperative.
When we arrived at Vritomartis we were very pleasantly surprised by the very warm welcome that made us feel at home. As I am handicapped there is always a need to make some adjustments and understanding by the accommodation and also this was easily done by the employees. I brought with me an electric fold scooter to get around and it was no problem to use my scooter at the hotel, to the pool, to the bungalows and the other surroundings.
We will tell you about our first visit to Crete and hotel Vritomartis. It happened at the end of June in the summer of 2013. Μe and my girlfriend Eli left for the dream island of Crete. Due to the long road we chose to travel by bus to Athens and then by ferry to the second largest city of Crete – Chania. After a long journey on motorways we arrived at Athens and we got on the ferry. After a romantic night on the ship “Eliros” we landed at the port of Souda in Chania town in the early morning. We got on the bus that takes us to the small town of Chora Sfakion. Road passing through a passage of the majestic mountain Lefka Ori. The moment we stepped on Crete we were fascinated by the grandeur and beauty of the largest island in the Mediterranean. Continue reading →
From the first moment we drove down the mountain on the beautiful and scenic road to Sfakia, Crete, we became aware of the unique romantic atmosphere of this southern coast line. After discovering the excellence of Vritomartis and its people we started to explore all the unique and secluded beaches of the area. Like many other couples, we were in need of some quality romantic time as a couple. We had to refill our love cup with quality time and intimate connection. This beautiful coastline became a memorable experience and place to restore our intimacy as a couple.
You may be like so many others and have considered going to a naturist beach or maybe you went to one by yourself or friends to see what it was all about. Have you ever thought about taking the family on a naturist holiday? How would your family benefit from the experience? In addition to the experience being liberating and fun, there are also a lot more technical benefits that everyone will appreciate. Living life in the nude is ingrained in the history of our ancestors, but recent times have changed all of that. I’m not just talking about day-to-day life, but how society has encouraged us to believe that living, even if occasionally, as a naturist is a thing frowned upon. Thankfully, times seem to be slowly changing as more and more people realize the multitude of benefits that naturist family experience has, even if only on vacations or for short periods of time. The family holiday is a time to relax and enjoy spending quality time with those around you outside of your daily habits and that is exactly what you would be doing here, at Vritomartis.
When we arrived at Vritomartis, after a beautiful and exciting trip over The White Mountains from Chania, we were pleasantly surprised. Mountain goats were climbing along the road and we drove off the road and rolled the windows down to soak in the warm air, smell the mountains and bimling sound from the goats bells was all around. On the road down to Chora Sfakia, a big sign popped up and showed us the way to Vritomartis. The road down to the hotel welcomed us with beautiful flowering shrubs.
