The space

This is a unique old stone house of around 200sq.m located in an idyllic quiet area not far from the town of Kissamos (around 5km distance). It is divided in spacious rooms which are all in very good condition and it is fully equipped and elegantly decorated. There is a big yard with fantastic view enjoying absolute privacy. This house could be described as a watchtower from where real life of Crete can be observed. The view to the mountains, olive groves and close villages is stunning.
Apart from the view, taste and comfort, the house is characterised by a very special atmosphere that gives the guest the feeling of a historical, living space and it is indeed by itself a very good introduction to his travel to Crete.

The cock wakes up the sun. The geese join in. Then the peacocks, which like to parade up and down the villages' street in twilight (and sometimes drop in to have an early morning snack at the terrace). You may hear a slurping sound, look down to the spring (at the outer wall of t…

The welcome: We were a bit lost getting to the village, so our host met with us at the highway, saved our life! The greeting was amazing, and the house full of little surprises to make us feel welcome. You can see the passion of the hosts to the area and culture. The house: A…
