The space

“The Small House In Katalagari” was re-built 10 years ago with a special goal in mind; the ground and the first floor should be as “compact” as possible, providing all the necessary items that will allow each floor to be self-sufficient, with its own kitchen, full bathroom with shower and a couch that will sleep two. Exception is the 3rd floor where are the actual 2 bedrooms each with a double bed and a door for privacy. The end result is: it sleeps 8 adults but it is a bit crowded but 6 adults are just fine. We tested the house with 2 couples and a father with 2 kids’ total 7 people and were just fine. One more detail that should not go un-noticed, we used large windows in order to enjoy the Cretan bright sun light, especially the sunrise over the Lassithi Mountains across the horizon, and the amazing view of the valley beneath.

The reason of the house set-up is obvious; we wanted to use the house as our base in order to explore with our children and our friends, the amazing island of Crete.

The goal was accomplished.

Now we would like to offer the house to anyone how would like to do the same; to explore and enjoy Crete and Cretans, the descendants of the Minoan people. But mostly to uncover the unconditional Cretan hospitality were every stranger is consider to be a god sent person, to taste the fine Cretan cousin and discover the actual test of tomato, and all the vegetables that made the Greek salad famous.

The peace and serenity were just what we were looking for and the view is spectacular. The house is very comfortable and had everything we could need and the surrounding area is charming. We had a wonderful stay.

If you want to stay in a friendly village in Crete in a very comfortable home - this is the place to stay. Very peaceful with great scenery and a local Taverna as a neighbour. Handy to all the local sights too with a car. We had a wonderful time.
