About our home

We have a two bedroom one bath house for trade in the gorgeous rustic yet stylish village of Avdou in Crete Greece. Enjoy custom reclaimed wood furniture, gather herbs from ancient clay pots outside the kitchen, get inspired by the endless mountain views, hike the hills and collect wildflowers, or cozy up next to the fireplace. You will get cable TV, fast wifi, and a car to drive (The Mediterranean is only 8 miles away)
