A completely new renovated (2018) old Cretan stone house, which is located in the centre of the village, near to supermarkets, cafes, tavernas and only a 10min drive to the wonderful beaches of Kato Zakros and Xerokambos. In Zakros you can still feel the spirit of a cretan traditional village. The famous Windsurfing spot in Kouremenos is just 20min by car. The place is an ideal starting point for hiking ( gorge of Richti and Kato Zakros), and excursions like the ancient Minoan palace of Zakros.

The space
The house was first built in 1870 and kept in our family now in the 4th generation. We completely renovated it this year (2018), to make it to a lovely, modern home with a traditional touch.
Bedroom no 1 has a large king size bed and bedroom no. 2 has a double bed and a single bed with a small balcony from where you have a great mountain view. The only thing is that the rooms are arranged one behind the other, so to get to bedroom no.1 you have to pass bedroom no. 2. For this reason the house is not so suitable for 2 couples, but perfect for 1 couple, a company of friends or family's with children. It was the way to build houses 100 years ago and it was not possible for us to change it.
The third room is a full equipped kitchen and living room. (TV, WIFI)
The modern bathroom features hydro-massage. All the rooms are fully air conditioned.
The house is perfect for couples or families with children.
