About the home
Mulberry Cottage combines the splendour of traditional Cretan architecture with 21st century style. The gardens and swimming pool offer privacy and tranquillity and the shady terraces make outdoor dining a must.
The centre of the village is 800m away and offers a number of cafes and tavernas offering mouthwatering local cuisine and the chance to sample tasty Cretan wines
