In amongst the Cretan countryside, the olive groves and the sweet smelling fragrance of the nearby orchards you will find this beautiful house built in 2007. The house offers everything you need for the perfect home, it is full of traditional Greek character but also has the mod cons.

There are 2 bedrooms in the house, kitchen with all the appliances, bathroom/shower, lounge area with TV set and Wi-Fi hot spot, which consists of a sofa which can be converted into a bed. Here you will find a lot of information about different places of interest, maps of the area and books in English, German and French. Fresh fruits and other local products such as honey, wine, ouzo and olive oil are for free. Bed linen & towels are provided. All the windows and doors in the house are double glazed with fly screens. There is spacious stone paved yard with an outdoor Jacuzzi (available from May 1 till October 30). At the bottom of the yard there is a pergola, table and chairs. Outside of the house there is a parking area.

The property is suitable for people of all ages (*children over 5 years). The area is rather flat so It is easy to walk around and reach all the amenities for elderly persons and small children.

The house is located in quiet and unspoiled from mass tourism village, so you are given the opportunity to experience the local culture, the warm hospitality, and the authentic cretan way of life. The neighbourhood is very pretty with areas to walk and cycle in the middle of the countryside.
