GrottoHomes is a traditional stonebuilt compound constructed in several phases before 1900, on top of a grotto. It used to be a Venetian olive press factory and later on the houses of both the miller and his elder son. It has been restored with patience, respect and knowledge by its current owner who, being an architect, turned it to a contemporary holiday home, with two swimming pools, maintaining reverently every architectural detail of the past.

Grotto Homes comprises the Main House and a Studio.

The main house consists of a vast living and dinning room area, with all the facilities needed, a big fully equiped kitchen, 2 bedrooms with terrace, private bathrooms and an indoor pool excavated in a grotto! The studio is part of the house and it contains a big bedroom with terrace and a loft with an extra single bed. We have seperated this part of the house, allthougth under the same roof, becuse it has its own kitchenette, dining and living rooms, bathroom and entrance.

The Main house combined with the Studio gives GrottoHomes trhe flexibility to accomodate smaller or larger groups of people, families with kids in their adolescence who usually love the feeling of staying in their "own house" next to the parents, or even families of two friends wishing to travel together.

In GrottoHomes, nature meets luxury and awaits you to use it as a springboard for discovering Crete.
