This quaint, comfortable and magical Studio Chalet is situated behind the main house and two other rentals . The house is surrounded by grape vines , fig , lemon , apricot , and pomegranate trees . Also large cacti with prickly pear fruit , geraniums , lavender , and the smell of jasmine at your doorstep .You will be able to enjoy the fruits from our garden depending on the season and we will supply you with our own fresh olive oil for cooking , a welcome bottle of our red wine , and olive oil soap for your showers too . You also will be provided with a delicious Cretan appetizer plate when you arrive and a continental breakfast . For your convenience , there is a small family -run grocery store within walking distance for your initial shopping and a larger chain grocery store nearby . Come and experience Crete with us :-)
I am an American who has lived on the island for 15 years now . It would be my pleasure to assist you in all your excursions and help you experience the real Crete , with all of her ancient mysteries and natural beauty . In the summer ( about 6 months long ) of course we have the pristine beaches everywhere you look , fall and winter we have the making of wine , raki ( or moonshine ) and the harvesting for olive oil through out the villages . There is a fantastic winery nearby to visit and tour called Boutari Winery that is just 4 kilometers from the house . There you will be able to taste , experience and buy some of our local wines to take back home with you too ! There is also a beautiful canyon called the Karteros Canyon just down the hill from the chalet where you can take long hikes through nature .There are over 6,000 villages , 3000 caves and more than 350 beaches to explore on the island and all unique in their own special way . You will never forget Crete !
