About the property

Gramvousa Traditional House Is The Perfect Setting For An Unforgettable Stay

The beautifully restored traditional home in the Cretan countryside offers its guests quality and comfort in a historical setting near the sea. There is a special attention to the natural environment and a focus on eco-conscious practices and materials, without sparing any comforts for our guests. We pamper our guests with local and organic products, ranging from organic foods to local olive oil shampoos and soaps.

The kitchen is fully equipped to make your stay comfortable, and includes a filter coffee machine, an espresso coffee machine, a variety of sweeteners (brown sugar, stevia, and more), teas, and other goodies designed to delightfully surprise our guests. Our guests have the opportunity to try our personal production of olive oil, local wine, raki (spirit), local dried bread rusks, fruits, real natural yogurt, and local herbs, for example.

The home itself, decorated tastefully with historical objects in every room, exudes a comfortable homey feeling steeped in culture and quality, and it features two bedrooms each with double beds complete with fresh linens .

In the common areas there is a useful wooden desk for those who want to do some work or keep up communication with their loved ones. There is a comfortable solid wood dining table for lunches and dinners, and guests can enjoy the outdoors on the terrace, for eating outside while enjoying the amazing sea view. In the winter there is a fireplace to cozy up to inside.

About Gramvousa traditional house.

I love meet people from all over the world and share with them new ideas. I like talk with my guests about the real local culture and help them have a quality stay in my place. I am also a cactus lover and a life time student.

Why Gramvousa traditional house. chose Kissamos

This property was my grandfathers home. I renovated it at 2007 and it is my holiday home. When I was remaking the house I found the quality that was missing from the modern homes so I made a fully equipped traditional kitchen and an open fire in an other room..I also tied to furnish it to a high standard .

What makes this apartment unique

I am in love with this house and I really like to share it with guests. It is wonderfull to have breakfast in the terace looking the Kissamos gulf. It is 5 km from Balos, 7 km from Falasarna,35 from Elafonisi. and 5 km from Kissamos town for supplies or nightlife.

Pleasant bright and airy house

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay.The house was very clean and very well equipped.It is close to Kissamos for supermarkets and fresh fish and a variety of restaurants and close to beautiful beaches.

Our only criticisms would be its proximity to a busy road and the lack of a garden.

Schöner Blick

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus liegt , mit einem herrlichen Blick auf die Bucht, oberhalb des Ortes Kissamos und ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Die Vermieterin ist eine liebenswürdige Person, die versucht alles bestens zu arrangieren (auch ein Obstkorb, Brot, Fl., Wein etc. sind eine freundliche Gabe zur Begrüsssung., eine Fl. natives selbstgepresstes Öl zur Verabschiedung.

Leider liegt das Haus oberhalb der Strasse und ist daher nicht ganz "ruhig".

gentilezza e ospitalità super!

  • 5 of 5

La casa si trova in una posizione molto comoda per raggiungere le spiagge di Balos e Falassarna, Elafonissi è un po' più lontana ma si raggiunge facilmente.

Vagia è una persona molto gentile e cordiale e ci ha fatto trovare tutto quello di cui avevamo bisogno: asciugamani, shampoo, piatti, latte uova pane tutto buonissimo. In più una bottiglia di vino come benvenuto :D

Sistemazione perfetta e casa grande e accogliente; se dovessimo tornare a Creta torneremmo sicuramente!

Consigliata ++

We really enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful typical house, clean and tidy, provided with an amazing porch with a wonderful view of the sea. The landlady was very friendly, when we arrived we found in the house some typical Greek products to try, fruits and a bottle of wine. I highly recommend this house because it's very well equipped (kitchen tools and cutlery, linens, food, mosquito spray, etc...) and also for the kindness and hospitality of the owner, who was available night and day. The house is near two of the most beautiful beaches in Creta (Falassarna and Balos) and near Kissamos.

La.localisation est parfaite pour profiter de l ouest de l ile et de sa cote que ce soit le sud, le nord ou la cote ouest, sauvage et magnifique.

Les plus belles plages de l ile sont a qq minutes de la maison.

La maison, sa terrsasse et sa vue sont tres agreables.

Vagia est perfectionniste, tout est fait pour que vous passiez un sejour extraordinaire.

Merci Vagia
