Three bedrooms built from local stone & wood, with exquisite views of the olive groves and White Mountains. In close distance you can find beautiful beaches, traditional restaurants and shops.

My husband and I recently renovated my grandfather’s historical home, over a hundred years old, lovingly with attention to each last detail. We had a retreat in mind, where we could gather all our family and grandchildren to enjoy each other’s company and the beautiful Cretan countryside, getting away from the stresses of daily life. Here one can relax and listen to the sounds of the village, the birds singing, and smell the Greek countryside scents and aromas of the various herbs and grasses.
The renovation was taken with great care to source local materials (wood and stone) and craftsmen, and then decorated with the highest quality furniture, old and new. From our travels we collected over the years many beautiful and unique pieces, while at the same time we feature local artworks and everyday object d’art.
The spacious and serene home is laid out on two levels. The ground floor, entrance and open plan living room with dining area, plenty of sitting room and dining at a solid wood table, lets out onto the porch with its outdoor eating area.
The kitchen adjoins the dining room and is separate yet connected, and one can glimpse a view of my grandmother’s old wood-burning stone oven, now lit up as a decorative element. Fully equipped with refrigerator, stove, stovetop, marble countertops, ceramic double sink, the kitchen is a dream, with a picture window overlooking the garden. The split level living area has two full couches, and a few steps up beyond the corridor leads into the spacious white marble bathroom and two bedrooms. The first bedroom is a queen-sized bed with plenty of closets, and the second a single bed with a desk and space for clothes as well. This room is especially impressive with its views of the olive groves all around.
Up the steps is the master bedroom with its en suite marble bathroom and king sized bed.
The outside gardens are beautifully kept on many different levels, and they host dozens of different types of trees, most bearing fruit in season: Lemons, tangerines, oranges, olives, apricots, bananas, pomegranates, bergamots, lotus, pears, grapes, figs, prickly pears. Our guests are welcome to gather what they would like for their table.
With many different places to sit and enjoy the outdoors, under the shade of the ancient olive tree or under the pergola at the outdoor patio, life outdoors is restorative and peaceful. For a lunch or dinner our guests may use the outdoor barbecue and oven to create a fun al fresco feast!
