Anatoli is placed in an open slope at the footprints of Dicti mountains. As such it combines the characteristics of a mountainous settlement along with a breathtaking view towards the Mediterranean sea. Despite its proximity to the sea, Anatoli's high altitude and location offers an outstanding climate for human living. Cool and dry conditions dominate throughout the year. As a result, despite the limited production of nuts, fruits, herbs and vegetables, the aforementioned agricultural products which are essential for the Cretan diet, possess rare aromas and an intense taste. The subtle human activities and the surrounding wild nature offer a unique environment for those few who seek tranquility along with traditional outdoor activities.
