Wild Nature Eco Lodge Camp

Camping in comfort

Experience Crete’s unique natural beauty while staying in the one-of-a-kind “Wild Nature Eco Lodge Camp” near the picturesque village of Meronas in Amari.

A camp that fits harmoniously in its natural environment, in the heart of a lush oak forest. 

Indulge yourself in the camp’s magical and peaceful environment and enjoy the special atmosphere created by the spacious wooden and canvas Lodges.

An amazing experience!

Nested in the middle of Cretan nature, this eco-lodge is not only a beautiful spot but also the starting point of so many amazing treks and wildlife experiences.
The lodges are superb, as clean as it gets, very comfortable. Hospitality is refined and caring, with a special mention to the owners.
Really worth the (ideally long) stay.

Meronas village

Nestled on the southeastern slopes of Mount Panaori, at an altitude of 630m, Meronas enjoys a beautiful view of the Amari Valley, and the mountains of Psiloritis, Samitos and Kedros.
Meronas is the 4th largest village in Amari – among 42 inhabited communities – with 120 permanent residents. It is a typical village of the Cretan hinterland with a central square, narrow streets, fountains of crystal clear water and numerous C13th and C14th churches.

Campsite location and features

Wild Nature Eco Lodge Camp spans 27 acres of forested mountainside, just 700m southwest of Meronas, at an altitude of 630m. 
The emblematic feature of the camp is the old church of Saint Nicholas (13th century) standing in the heart of the property. Inside the church there are magnificent frescoes of Byzantine origin and built-in pitchers that create an incredible acoustics.
Nearby, fresh drinking water gushes from a natural spring. Of special interest is the ubiquitous wildlife in the camp with species that pose no danger to humans. 

Amenities and Facilities

The campground’s infrastructure includes one large and two smaller buildings, with reception room, administration office, kitchen, café, lounge, laundry room, outdoor kitchens and dining kiosks. There are also common bathrooms, wastewater treatment plant, fire fighting system, first aid room, seating in shaded areas and large open spaces for events and outdoor activities.
