Two level house, traditional Cretan style, 3 Km from the beach, amazing sunset view, fully equipped kitchen, terrace, 2 double bedrooms, large entrance hall, 1 bathroom, 1WC, very fast wifi, unlimited data download. Very quiet area, easy to park.
I have restored this house with great respect to the Cretan architectural style and took care of every detail of it so that it offers comfort as well as originality to the visitor. Since I am an archaeological conservator specializing on the conservation and preservation of architectural remains, I used all my experience in preserving the authenticity of this place while making it comfortable and functional as well. What makes a great difference in this house is the details like the pebble floors of the bathroom and WC and the handmade brass taps and blown glass light fixtures which were brought from the workshops of Damascus. Furthermore, the house is equipped with a very fast wifi internet line with unlimited data download, which makes it ideal for those who need to work during their stay. The two bedrooms are located on the ground level which makes them cooler and there is an open cellar at the basement which is very pleasant and can accommodate one or two persons extra. The front porch is small and colorful and can be the best place to enjoy your coffee in the afternoon when the upper terrace is hit by the sun.
On the first floor there is an open plan kitchen and sitting area adjacent to the terrace overlooking the village, olive groves and Tholos bay.
The house was initially built for personal use, therefore everything was designed with a lot of care.
The guests can access easily both the North coast of East Crete which is only 3 km drive and the south coast which is about 16 km away. The archaeological sites located on the hills behind the house can be accessed either by car or hiking, and offer breathtaking views of the gulf of Merambello. The house is located directly on the route of E4 European long distance path. There is free parking space at the back of the house.
Although I am absent for long periods the guest can contact me directly for any information or advice they may need and one of my closest friends and colleagues will be available upon their arrival or at any other time if necessary.
I expect that visitors respect the house which is made mostly of natural materials, stone and wood and treat it like a piece of art. Since the neighbourhood is very quiet, I expect that my guests respect that and do not destroy the peace of this place.
I am an archaeological conservator specialising in architectural conservation and I restore remains at different places in Greece and abroad. I also teach conservation and restoration of mosaics at the University of Athens.
My work requires me to be in many places working on different projects so i am away a lot.
