beautiful house on a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

Special house, fully equipped. The owners were very hospitable. It was possible to hang around the house all day, space and privacy enough. Also there is enough to see and to do in the area. The surrounding is amazing. Green, empty, rough. The weather was fantastic. We had a great holiday.

Wunderschön!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben Anfang April als Familie mit zwei Kindern eine Woche in der Mühle verbracht und uns dort sehr wohlgefühlt. Das Haus und der Garten sind sehr charmant, mit viel Liebe und Geschmack angelegt, sauber und sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Zimmer verteilen sich auf insgesamt vier versetzten Ebenen; ganz unten ist ein Schlafzimmer mit zwei Einzelbetten sowie das Bad, ein paar Stufen darüber die Küche, eine Treppe höher das Wohnzimmer mit der Eingangstür und eine weitere Treppe höher die Empore mit dem Doppelbett. Alle Zimmer haben Fenster und/oder Türen nach draußen.

Die Vermieter waren sehr freundlich und haben uns mit Obst, Olivenöl, Kuchen und stets guten Tipps für Ausflüge und Wanderungen versorgt. Sie wohnen auf dem Grundstück und sind bei Bedarf jederzeit ansprechbar gewesen.

Wir können das Haus nur wärmstens empfehlen!

We loved our stay in Crete and this property was a big part of the reason. First it was a close driving distance to world class beaches (Palm Beach at Vai was excellent) and we went to five different beaches in as many days. The locals were all very welcoming and helpful - chief among them were our hosts who provided us with maps and useful information we couldn't have found in a guide book about best places to eat and sights to see.

The property itself was great - with a well equipped kitchen and lots of room throughout. The surrounding orchards and gardens were all beautiful and luckily in full bloom when we visited. We felt like we on some country estate - but close enough to all the services we needed at Sitia ( less than 10 minutes away)... Also - Zakros Gorge was close enough that if you're into hiking you'd be in for a treat as well.

We would recommend this to families, or as a romantic getaway - and are definitely looking forward to staying again. I could write a lot more about this property - but after seeing the pictures - you'd agree I don't need to. Book it and have a great time!

"My husband and I spent eight days in this converted mill that was furnished more like a good home than a holiday apartment. Its superb location in its own grounds and lavish gardens between mountains and the sea, Siteia a short drive away and 1001 delights (ancient sites, beaches, country footpaths, and tavernas - Metohi near Vai, Balcony in Siteria) made Greek myths into a Cretan reality which was, quite honestly, remarkably attractive. Lefteris, and Kate too, were generous hosts/hostesses with ample supplies of local knowledge that made our visit all too short."

By air, catch an internal connecting flight to Sitia Airport from Athens International Airport.

By car, get one of the many flights into Heraklion Airport and from there take a rental car.

By boat, you can arrive on either the Athens-Heraklion or the direct Athens-Sitia service.

Sitia lies in the easternmost regional area on Crete, Lasithi, to the east of Agio-Nikolaos and northeast of Ierapetra. This area is set back from the mass tourism. Even in the busier summer period, Sitia retains a certain flair and laid-back style. In the city, and especially in the region's villages, you can sample authentic Cretan gastronomy with high quality local olive oil among other regional products. During the day, you can swim and sunbathe on Sitia beach or on the many virgin beaches on the island's eastern edge. In addition, you can pay a visit to the largest natural palm forest in Europe, Vai. On your way, you can stop off at Toplou Monastery. A must-see for those who love wind surfing is the world famous Kouremenos Beach. The exhibitions at the Sitia Archaeological Museum contain articles dating back to the Neolithic Era, 3500 BCE. The Folklore Museum exhibits pieces from the last century including woven items, etchings on wood, and other everyday objects.
