The space

At the end of a beautiful mountain, among vineyards and lots of olive trees, is a sleepy village called Orino, close to Ierapetra and Sitia in Crete.

It is a small house, one floor plus roof, with window to the sea and a lot of freedom and joy. The house is 120 years old, stone cretan traditional style. It has 2,5 rooms, a bathroom and 2 kitchens, one inside the house and one outside for cooking and barbecue.

The village has 172 residents, 620 sheep, 380 goats, dogs and cats about 80. There is a mini market for your basic needs and a traditional cafe (kafeneio) where you can enjoy coffe and the traditional drink of Crete, raki. A car is passing by everyday, providing residents with fish, meat, bread and vegetables. A supermarket at your place!

Southeast part, between Ierapetra and Sitia, the wild area. For rent from the owners who are staying there for years. You will have a great, peaceful stay, in the beautiful mountains of Crete, hosted by the hospitality of Cretans! Welcome


בקצה הר יפה, בין כרמים והמון עצי זית, שוכן לו כפר מנומנם. ומה יש בו, בכפר? בית קטן, מפלס אחד פלוס גג, עם חלון לים והרבה חופש ונחת. 172 תושבים, 620 כבשים, 380 עיזים, כלבים וחתולים בערך 80. להשכיר למי שמכיר, דרום מזרח האי, בין אירפטרה לסיטיה, כן, כן האיזור הפראי. לפרטים מהבעלים שכבר שוהים שם שנים.

Beautiful and peaceful place. Perfect to escape to the crowds on the coast and to explore the region. Nikos, the neighbor who takes care of the house and welcomes you is a really nice guy. I would go back anytime!

A beautifully renovated old house in a mountain village. It could not be a better place to spend a week in the paradise of Crete. The house was thoughtfully prepared for us. It was a comfortable place to return after hiking in the hills surrounding the place. Yehuda's friend Nikk…

Yehuda’s house was just perfect for the kind of holiday we had in mind. Being in the mountains meant it was just a little cooler than the coast but also really only a short drive to reach the sea for swimming and more choices of places to eat. We had the ideal mix of very quiet …
