About our home

Our home is on the island Crete. It is in a well known historical village, Gavalohori. The village is picturesque and maintains authentic featrures of the traditional Cretan life and style. There are 2 beautiful beaches Almirida and Kalives beach only a mile away. There are plenty of excellent retsaurants in the village as well as along the beach fronts. The whole area is absolutely beautiful. The city of Chania is only half and hour drive which is beautiful,.especially the port and the old town. There are also plenty of amazing beaches all over the island in Chania, Falasarna, Elafonisi, Paleochora etc.
The house is very comfortable and situated on a high hill that overlooks the vlllage and the mountains , lefka ori. Im sure whoever visits will be amazed by the lifestyle, traditons of the locals which may sometimes appear a bit primitive, but nonetheless simplicit and therefore beautiful. The house has all the comforts of a home in a city but only in an area surrounded by nature that you can see, amell and hear.
The house is on a hill in the village with a beautiful view, There is a private road that leads you to the house and the gate is only opened with the control. It is in a very small complex of homes, mainly used in summer. In the complex there is a garden with seasonal trees, fruit and vegetables.In general, it is a beautiful place where you can enjoy peace and quiet without being or feeling completely isolated.
I should also mention that Gavalohori is also famous to locals because it has the highest percentage of sales in real estate to tourists/foreigners who wish to live here on the island. Staying in Gavalohori enables a tourist to get the feeling of both sides of the life on the island, country and city , because it is not far from the city. You can enjoy both in an authentic setting.
