The Traditional Homes and Villas of Crete

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

The owners of these old stone built houses have admiration and respect for their heritage, thus the need to revive and preserve the past. Acceding to the requirements of present times, these houses have been renovated and modernized. Realistically, we believe that it is rather difficult to make a fortune by renting these old houses. It is only therefore an expression of our affection for the preservation of old times, a small token of our debt to the history of the island

The Stone House you are staying in is our recognition of our Ancestors and paying our respects for the World they have made and we are now able to enjoy.

The property have 10 homes (Margarita, Leonidas, Argiro, Efterpi, Kalliopi, Dimitra, Penelope, Erato, Clio, Monastery) and 2 villas ( Almond Tree House No 1 and Almond Tree House No 2 )
