Have you ever felt the need of stopping everything you are doing? Take a deep Breath, press "Pause" and enjoy the Moment? This house, will make you rethink, how life should really be!

The space

This is a renovated, 150 years old house. My grand-grand father used to live a fully sustainable life here. He used to have his vegetables' garden, vineyards, olive trees, and animal stock, everything around the house. They would collect their own wheat, produce the flour, and cook bread into the wood oven located just beside the house. He would then go at the nearby shore, catch some fish, cook it, and wash it down with some homemade wine.

Guest access

My main objective by renovating this house, was to replicate this lifestyle (as near as possible), and to be able to experience the beauty of nature and all it's remedies. There is no Wi-Fi, Air Condition, neither TV, instead you can water the flowers, and hike on the nearby cliff for an amazing Sunset. Bring your favorite books with you, as the balcony is ideal for reading.

Interaction with guests

If i am not around, my parents or one of my friends will escort you at the house and guide you through. We will provide you with all the necessary ingredients for your first breakfast.

Other things to note

Due to the concept of this accommodation, there are some points that you need to understand before booking. 1) The house is 100% on solar power, which mean that we advice minimum consumption of electricity. Energy thirsty equipment such as Air Conditioning are not provided. 2) The road to the house is a rural road, so you might need some good driving skills.

Wow! Truly the best Airbnb experience I've ever had! Kostas and his family provided an extremely warm welcome and thorough explanation of all that was needed to know about the place and surrounding area. This is a special house as the property has been in their family for a very long time and to get to hear a bit of the history and even a bit of an old love story really enhanced the stay. The house itself is immaculate and furnished with everything you could possibly need and caring details of the remodel are evident throughout, taking care to preserve the old but add modern conveniences in a well-designed manner as well as bits of fun color. The property itself is in an incredible location with views that just make you want to make another cup of tea and never leave. As Kostas' wife said, "You feel like a queen overlooking your kingdom from here"! Kostas' description of the road up to the place is accurate although not as scary as it sounds (or looks!). My small rental, a Nissan Micra made it up and down with no problems. The nearby town of Mohlos is fun to explore with great restaurants and the nearby hills are fun to walk. Truly relaxing and beautiful!

Cadre exceptionnel au calme avec vue imprenable sur mer et montagne, à proximité d'un petit village de pécheur typique. Idéal pour découvrir l'authenticité de la Crète. Un accueil extraordinaire de la part de notre Hôte et de tout son entourage. Logement recommandée pour des personnes soigneuses et respectueuses.
