In the well-equipped kitchen with electrical appliances, including dishwasher, it will lack nothing. The living room has a cozy fireplace which is fired with olive wood. The house has air conditioning.

Around the house you will find four terraces where sunbeds / garden furniture is provided so that you can always find it. Sunny and / or sheltered We are sure that a stay in "O Illios" will deliver an unforgettable holiday.

Pitsidia is a small traditional Cretan village near Matala on the south coast of Crete. The accommodations and restaurants are of good quality, and the people are very friendly.

A walk through Pitsidia puts you in the first place on the "platia." Here you can sit on one of the terraces, and a cool drink order with some mezes (savory snacks). Between the cafe / restaurants / shops

You will certainly past the "supermarket" of Kostas. Here they sell absolutely everything. And they are two such nice Pitsidianen.

Further on you will pass the church that evening beautifully illuminated.

If your evening return to O Illios after you have eaten and drunk you feel the friendliness of the people. Kalinichta (goodnight)
