About this listing
A newly renovated granny's house providing comfort of a modern home, combined with the exposed stone feel of a traditional Cretan building.Close to Heraklion and Krousonas, a big village 2klm away. Mountain walks and fireplace for winter and 15min drive from closest beach for summertime! Enjoy!
The fireplace works a treat and is great for roasting some local potatoes. During winter some wood will be provided.
This place is unique for being close to the pure nature and to a big city at the same time.
Four people can easily fit, plus 2 more on demand.
All electric cooking facilities (local olive oil, local wild herbs for tea), fridge, fresh bedding and towels,
soap, toilet paper, washing powder.
Interaction with Guests
I will be meeting them on arrival, to give them the key, a map of the area and some advice and on (website hidden) case i am not able to meet them on departure guests will be able to leave the keys to my neighbor, Maria.
It's a quiet neighborhood, the house is at the edge of the village, this offers enough privacy.
There is no public transport, one needs to have a car/bike, can park just outside the house, always enough space. It's a less than half an hour drive from Heraklion airport, head to the West, towards Rethymno city, exit to Gazi town on the right and then turn left at the traffic-lights and left again at the second road on your left (no signs in English yet but follow the ENISA sign only once, then go all straight. The road to Kroussonas has just been re-opened and mostly asphalt, new and wide. Just two short parts are not asphalt yet but they are still safe. Just 2klm before Krousonas, turn right and see the sign to Loutraki. Please let me know before your arrival where you would like us to meet. I could come to the airport or to the village.
Other Things to Note
Please feel free and welcome in the house, but do respect it at the same time in every respect.
No smoking allowed in the house, better in the yard. Be quiet at siesta time (phone number hidden)). Sorry, no pets allowed.
