The house harmoniously combines the old, built entirely of stone and wood, with the new that has all the modern amenities, flat TVs screen with USB ports in all rooms, satellite TV, satellite internet, indoor and outdoor alarm, DVD-USB player, heated pool etc.

Tools, implements, utensils ( sieve, iron, manual sewing machine, old radio tubes, the ironwork of the doors and windows, jars of oil) are in place not simply as decorative elements, but as a memory of people who lived here at their time ...

This is the largest room of all and can accommodate 4 people since it has a queen size bed and two big comfortable sofa beds. The room has a tiled uncovered ceiling to the naked eye inside the wooden infrastructure.

The Chania Prefecture region

The Apokoronas extends from the foothills of the White Mountains north to the coast, in a wide plain with rolling hills. To the east, Cape Drapanon rises above the plain and extends out into the Sea of Crete. The area is very green and fertile, unusual for rocky Crete. The Kiliaris river, known in antiquity as 'Pyknos', runs through the region. Robert Pashley suggested that the name 'Apokoronas' came from the ancient city of Ippokoronas or Ippokoronion, also cited by Strabo. This city may have been located near modern Nipos, or on the site of the Venetian fortress, Castel Apicorono, on an outcrop between Kalyves and Almyrida. The major towns of Apokoronas are Vamos, Armenoi and Vryses, with police, municipal and utility offices as well as taverns and large churches; Kalyves, Almyrida and Georgioupoli are the largest beach resorts. Tourism and agriculture are the major local industries, with much construction and quarrying to satisfy the demands of many foreigners eager to buy or rent properties in what used to be beautiful and traditional villages. Gavalohori is among the more popular villages for foreign buyers, with a large amount of often low-quality building taking place. Many residents or workers in Chania also have homes in the area. Apokoronas was the location of much of the filming of the movie Zorba the Greek.


Georgioupolis, one of the most tourist destinations in Crete, Is situated on the northwest coast of the island, in the Almyros bay, between the cities of Chania and Rethymno. A group of villages built on the slopes of the White Mountains, on the Almyros river estuary and the shore that runs along the bay, amongst vineyards, olive groves and forests. The visitor here finds concentrated all the landscape features that give character to the island: the mountain and the plain, the river, the lake and the sea, wild nature and cultivated land. Landscapes of incomparable beauty, villages conserving the traditional Cretan element, but also residential zones of cosmopolitan atmosphere, nightlife, luxurious hotels with high-class services, and the ability of easy access to every place to the west of the island through the highway that links its major cities. Every summer, in Georgioupolis all the locals are devoted to provide services to the visitors: the famous Cretan hospitality finds here its true meaning. This is only one of the many reasons where thousands of visitors worldwide, return here full of nostalgia. Because the first word hospitality means to us, is the word Friendship.
