The Space

If solitude and stunning views in a pretty greek island is what you want, then Sitarena cottage is the home for you!
It is a 150 year old farmhouse, recently renovated with all the modern amenities and tasteful antiques. Situated in the third largest plateau of Karpathos island called Sitarena from the word "sitari" which means wheat.
This area gave good crops of wheat from the old times to the nearby medeival village of Menetes which is only 5 minutes away by car or 20 minutes by foot from the ancient hiking trail. Menetes has very good traditional tavernas popular with locals and tourists. The capital of the island Pigadia is 15 minutes by car as are many of the fantastic beaches of the island.

The Nature of Karpathos.
Many parts of the island are of unique natural beauty. Some of these places are:

Trachanamos Area

In this area, there are cedars, which extend to the sea and are found in very few places in Greece. It is noteworthy that this kind of bush like plants are in protected zones. This area begins from the bays Lares, Adeia, Vrontis, and the foreland Marathos and its greatest part is on the mountain Kali Limni.

Extended forests with coniferous trees especially Pinus Brutia consist magnificent scenery.

The visitor will enjoy exploring places with dashing streams, breathtaking steep dingles, and green valleys with natural springs. This area is of great value because of its unique geomorphology and its pine trees. There are also many kinds of plants and animals.

Achata's Cave

Over the beautiful beach of Achata is located a cave with stalactites and stalagmites.

Mertonas - Katodio

This vineyard area combines the colours of the sea together with the colours of the mountain in a unique way.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We spent about ten days in Sitarena Cottage and we warmly recommend it if you want to find a place of absolute peace and silence and if you like to be involved into an authentic piece of Greece. Marianna and his husband Minas are very welcoming and kind, always ready to satisfy every request or answer to every question about the island and its possibilities.We came back home with a strong memory of that place and faces of rhose peolple. Bright days!

  • Ho passato dieci giorni molto belli nella casa di Marianna.
    Il posto è incantevole, una casa antica ristrutturata con molto gusto. Ideale per due persone, molto romantica e per chi cerca la pace assoluta. Di notte si può godere di un cielo stellato di straordinaria bellezza. Marianna e la sua famiglia sono stati molto gentili, ci hanno accolti con grande simpatia e la sera abbiamo cenato insieme in una fantastica taverna a Menetes, mangiando il pesce che Minas( il marito di Marianna ) aveva pescato il giorno stesso e dandoci preziosi consigli sull'isola.
    La casa è dotata dei confort essenziali essendo una casa di campagna. ( portatevi il phon!!).
    Vi consiglio di verificare se il periodo è particolarmente ventoso perché l'unico inconveniente è che trovandosi in aperta campagna un po' in alto si può soffrire un po' troppo la presenza del vento che impedisce di godere lo spazio esterno.

  • A wonderful week on Karpathos in a beautiful private stone cottage with an amazing view. A short drive from the village of Menetes, situated quite high on a plane overlooking the hills and the see, this little house was a perfect retreat. If you’re looking for a very pretty place in isolation this is the perfect spot! You will need a car to visit beaches and places around the island.

  • Sitarena Cottage is a special place in a very quiet area of Menetes. This farmhouse has been renovated with the traditional techniques and materials, and has been furnished with really good taste. We enjoyed the quiet, the silence, the beautiful view of the sea at dawn and sunset, and sometimes the company of sheeps grazing on the hill. Marianna recommended the best restaurants, beaches and everything that is worth seeing and trying on Karpathos. Sitarena Cottage is a place with a soul, something it is not easy to find, not even in this beautiful and authentic island.

  • I spent 5 weeks in this cottage and it was wonderful five weeks. From floor to ceiling, everything is typically Greek.
    The location was perfect for me, surrounded by space and quiet with a beautiful view of the sea Exactly what I was looking for.
    A car is necessary, I think, although the nearest village is 15 minutes walk.
    The owners of the cottage are a family very welcoming and friendly. I recommend Karpathos island which is very beautiful and typical, and especially this place.
