House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our house is an original stone built property and sleeps up to 6 people (2 double and 1 twin rooms).
The property is 5 minutes walk from the village square with tavernas, pizzeria and cafienon. Other shops also within minutes walking distance. Ideal for families and couples. Excellent views over surrounding valley and
hills - sunsets from the rooftop main terrace can be seen with an excellent glass of Sitia wine !
Greek and UK neighbours are all very friendly and willing to help. The regional capital Sitia with its restaurants, shops etc. is just 5 minutes drive away and the main road by the village leads to the south coast (Libyan Sea).
There are also nearby roads leading into the hills which are well worth exploring with traditional villages and a way of life which has not changed much in the last 50 years or so.

The Crete region
The regional capital Sitia is just 5 minutes drive away and the main road by the village leads to the south coast (Libyan Sea). There are also nearby roads leading into the hills which are well worth exploring with traditional villages and a way of life which has not changed much in the last 50 years or so.
Sitia the regional capital is just 3 km down the road with a fine sandy beach, a splendid market every Tuesday, a fishing harbour with many restaurants and local delicious cake shops. In July-August there is usually the "Kornaria" cultural festivities including concerts, theatrical performances etc in Sitia and surrounding villages. There are other events throughout the year including a raki festival in Hamezi just outside the town
Sitia has many other excellent shops . From the harbour there are boat services to other islands and the spectacular north coast road is also nearby and well worth the experience!
There is also the internationally renowned excellent Sitia Olive Oil and Wine and the Venetian Fortress and Folklore Museum. There is the Toplou Monastery and also Minoan Palace Ruins at Kato Zakros together with the famous palm fringed beach at Vai (the only one in Europe) near Paleokastro.
The north coast road is well worth the effort for the views and villages and there is also the south coast (LIbyan sea) 45 minutes drive away with some magnificent beaches notably at Makrigalios (very good for small children!).
Irepetra, the southernmost city of Europe is just an hour's drive away and also worth a visit. Off the beaten track there are villages in the hills which are also worth seeing.
