A fine balance between the old and the new is maintained to provide maximum comfort and unique atmosphere.

The house is a two-story building with an additional new-build room at the attic. The ground floor is the oldest part of the house, which dates back to 18th century. It has been renovated to a modern open plan kitchen/living room area while a few of the historical architectural elements were preserved and incorporated into the modern layout. The kitchen is modern, there is a large dining table sitting 8 persons and a small winery in the kitchen. The furniture of the kitchen and the whole house as well was designed in a rustically style.

The kitchen is fully equipped, including an oven, refrigerator, digester, juice-maker, toast-maker, coffee machine a micro wave oven & a kettle.

On the opposite side on the ground floor is a cosy living room separated by an historical arch from the rest of the space. The living room has a modern flat Satellite TV and a fireplace. There is a comfortable sofa, which can become an extra double bed if necessary.

There is an iron-wooden staircase leading from the ground floor to the first floor. On the first floor there are two bedrooms with wooden floors and ceilings and the master bathroom.

The master bedroom has a king-size double bed, large wardrobe and a beautiful view over the valley and hills stretching below the village. There is also a door leading from the master bedroom out to the terrace of the house. The second bedroom consists of two single beds.

The master bathroom is between the two bedrooms on the first floor and it has a Jacuzzi.

Another internal iron-wooden stairway is leading from the first floor to the attic, where you will find one more spacious new-build room with three windows on the three walls offering beautiful views to the surroundings.

The house has a terrace covered by a wooden pergola, which is accessible either from the master bedroom or by stairs from outside.

The house is suitable also for winter stays, as it has a fireplace and a central heating as well.

The house is also located at an excellent starting point to many interesting walking tours around.

Afroditi House in Gianiou, Crete

  • 5 out of 5
My family (2 adults & 2 kids, ages 7 and 9) & I stayed in this house for 2 weeks at the end of April 2014. It was exactly as shown in the pictures; as a matter of fact, it's hard to convey the effect of the spectacular panorama that you get from the patio. What a pleasure to wake up to every morning. The location is a small, sparsely-populated mountain village with friendly people (and lots of cats & sheep). The nearest large town, Plakias, is a tourist resort with a wide array of restaurants and grocery stores; it also has a butcher & a bakery, and, of course, an assortment of beaches. There's lots of rambling to be done from the house - including to the famous Prevali monastery, 1.5 kms over the mountain; and a spectacular panorama from the church on the highest peak right behind the village, about 1400' up. Our little girl took joy in doing a "patrol" of the village streets every morning after she got up. The owner of the house is Adonis, a friendly guy who also, as it happens, owns a tourist agency in town - so he has lots of info, if you need it. He put a lot of time & money into restoring his old family homstead, and he obviously cares about it very much. Many major sights are within a 90 min drive, including Chania, Iraklio, the ferries at Chora Sfakion, Phaestos, and Gortys, just to name a few. Our only (very minor) complaint is that the heat was turned off, and the odd night it was chilly, especially in the bottom floor kitchen - but we were there early in the season. This is the place for you if you want to have a genuine Cretan experience at your own pace & on your own terms, in spectacular surroundings that give you a taste of the flow & ebb of daily life. We had a wonderful time, and would recommend this place to anyone.
