Our house is called "O Illios" (EOT certified: MHTE 1039K10002978501)

Our stone house in Pitsidia called "O Illios". It lies on the southern coast of Crete, 65 km below Heraklion was built 10 years ago by a local builder. It therefore has very specific characteristics Cretan. The walls are 40 cm thick and this is both in summer and winter very pleasant.

Pitsidia is an original Cretan village with stunning views of the Mount Ida. Until May you see the snow on the mountain tops, which are 2400 meters high.

The beach is 2 km away and walk, cycle, or scootert's driving the car to. It is a wide, clean beach and is very quiet. In South Crete is about 9 months of summer.

In the house you can stay with up to 5 people. There are two bedrooms, one for 2 people and one for 3 people. Both upstairs and downstairs bathroom. In the downstairs bathroom, with bath, is also a washing machine. Since 2013, free wifi.

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 with sun beds / garden furniture is available, so you can always find it. Sunny and / or sheltered We are sure that staying 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 between the cafe / restaurants / shops sit on one of the terraces, and a cool drink order with some mezes (savory snacks).

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

Further on you pass the church that evening beautifully lit.

In the village you will find also a butcher, good pastry and plenty of small grocery stores and restaurants.

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

Pitsidia Buses: All buses to go through Pitsidia Matala, in the summer there are six buses a day to Matala, Heraklion, Phaistos and Agia Galini.

Around Pitsidia: You can Komos beach on foot in 30 minutes. In the neighboring village of Kalamaki is a short walk of 4 km, walking along the main road and Komos beach. Matala is 4 km away. Something more in the inland town of Sivas you with a nice walk through the olive fields reached in about half an hour.

WALKING:

So many possibilities to make. Pitsidia from beautiful walks Around Pitsidia olive groves stretch. In January / February blooming anemones below. It's a beautiful sight, the Mount Ida with its snow-capped peaks and down the colors of the flowers. In winter the temperature is typically between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius. A beautiful walk is also to nearby Kalamaki, past the first hill you see Kalamaki on the sea, with a clear blue sky above. You can have a cool drink on a terrace and snack and take before the return is accepted. Walking through one of the gorges, Samaria (18 km) for the experienced hiker or the Oleander gap with flowering oleanders in April and May (9 miles). The surroundings of Zaros for walkers very rewarding.

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS:

Phaistos is situated in the south-central Crete and will certainly be appreciated by those who love history. You can enjoy a beautiful panoramic view as it is located on a hilltop. On the other side is the Agia Triada excavation. You can buy a combined ticket for both sites. Also, when you find an excavation where Komosstrand still being worked on, but it is not (yet) to visit. Would you look a little further away than on the road to Heraklion, close to Agia Deka, Gortyn, a Roman settlement, very interesting. You learn that the emancipation in antiquity was already well advanced. And then of course the main excavation of Crete, Knossos, south of Heraklion.

A day of "culture" can not miss in your holidays.
