About Alice Palamianakis

I was born in Crete and grow up in Athens.

After the school I began to study architecture in Vienna , I became my diploma and started to work in several architecture offices and as a freelance architect.

In the year 2000 I met my husband in Crete and after 3 years I mooved with my office there. Today I live with my husband and my son in the mainhouse of the property.

Alice Palamianakis purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Alice Palamianakis chose Ierapetra

We love south Crete!!! The south-east coast of Crete is not crowded with tourists and its natural environment remains untouched from mass tourism. Having our guesthouse as a starting point, there are several places inside the town of Ierapetra and in the villages around, which are worthwhile a visit. You can take long walks and enjoy the magnificent nature the areas has to offer. These are some interesting tips to make your stay with us unforgettable one. You can access some of the most beautiful blue flag beaches in 5' - 10' distance from our guesthouse. It is recommended you hire a car. Pets are not permitted and smoking is only allowed outdoors.

What makes this cottage unique

Our guesthouse is a bioclimatic building and except the central heating there is also a wood stove for winter.In our area winter is mild with temperatures around 12 - 15 d.C. During September and Oktober you can still swim, im November you can experience how the local people make the raki - our traditional Cretan drink - and in December there is a Christmas bazaar and a lot of Christmas events for all ages. In January and February you can enjoy the mild and fragrant winter, in April and May the arrival of spring and the Greek Orthodox Easter. And of course in June, July and August you can experience the unique Greek summer.

Public buses provide connection from Ferma to other destinations and back. There are also public buses to Ierapetra from both airports of Heraklion and Sitia. You can also visit our two nearby islands, "Chrissi Island" and "Koufonisi" with daily ferries from Ierapetra and Makris Gialos.

A beautiful cottage with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has been designed and built with great care and attention to detail - there's plenty of room inside for two but the terrace outside has it's own cooking facilities so when the weather's warm you just live outside and take in the views over olive groves and the Mediterranean.

Aliki lives next door with her family and gave us a great welcome. Little gifts of fruit and wine made us feel like special guests. She recommended local tavernas, beaches and sites, many of which we'd never have found without her guidance.

You need a car to explore the eastern end of the island - there's far more to see and do than we could manage over a week's stay. The mountains are spectacular and there are beaches with very few people around. The food is mostly localy produced and delicious. Fresh fish, fruit and vegetables better than anything available at home.

Cretans are friendly, kind and embarrassingly fluent in English. We had a wonderful holiday and would recommend Aliki's cottage.

Wohlfühlunterkunft & tolle Tipps

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Mai mit unseren 2 Söhnen (fast 4 & 6J.) bei Aliki und Nikos. Die Unterkunft ist genau wie beschrieben und auf den Fotos zu sehen. Wir hatten super Wetter und somit waren wir fast nur zum Schlafen im Haus. Der Außenbereich und die Außenküche sind super! Die Gastgeberfamilie ist supernett und die Tipps sind großartig. Wir haben viele Vorschläge für Ausflüge, Besichtigungen und Restaurants etc. bekommen. Das hat unseren Aufenthalt sehr bereichert. Aliki ist auch in Notfällen (wir hatten leider unseren Mietwagen in einen Graben gefahren ;-)) erreichbar und hilfsbereit und immer ansprechbar, und dabei keinesfalls aufdringlich. Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohlgefühlt und können dieses süße Haus auf jeden Fall Pärchen und Familien mit 1-2 Kindern weiterempfehlen.

traumhaftes Haus und Grundstück mit Außenlounge und -küche

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Juni 2018 bei Aliki und ihrem Mann Nico zu Gast. Sie wohnen im Nachbargebäude. Man ist absolut für sich in diesem Ferienhaus und findet Ruhe und Entspannung. Es besitzt einen tollen Innen- und traumhafter Außenbereich. Im praktisch und liebevoll eingerichteten Ferienhaus mit großen sehr gepflegten Garten, fühlten wir uns wie zu Hause. Gern hätten wir mehr Zeit dort verbracht.

Ein Auto ist notwendig, wenn man dieses Ferienhaus mietet(Parkplatz direkt vor dem Haus auf dem Grundstück). Aliki hat uns super Tipps für Ausflüge ins ursprüngliche Kreta und Organisatorisches gegeben. Das Haus liegt etwas oberhalb der Küstenstraße, man hört keinen Verkehr und hat einen tollen Blick aufs Meer.

Wir werden sicher wiederkommen und können dieses Ferienhaus sehr weiterempfehlen.

A most relaxed holiday in a beautiful place .

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky that we discovered this beautiful location for our holiday. We were surrounded by olive and orange trees in Aliki and Nikos large garden full of plants and vegetables. We had a great view of the sea and 5 minutes from long beach which even on the busiest of days you would find plenty of space on your own. Our accommodation house was very clean with every facility you would need for your stay. Out side we had our own very large terrace with plenty of space and shade when it gets hot in the sun. Aliki was the perfect host and was very helpful to send us to all the best sites to visit and all the very best non expensive tavernas where the local produce was in abundance. You will not be disappointed with anything about this rental and we are already planning our next visit in the autumn. John and H.

Petit coin tranquille au fin fond de la Crète

  • 4 of 5

C'est une petite maison située dans la propriété d'Aliki et de Nikos. La maison est aménagée avec beaucoup de soin. Elle est bien équipée mais ne vous attendez pas à pouvoir cuisiner comme chez vous. Vous profitez de la vue sur le jardin bien vert, les oliviers et la mer au loin. L'endroit est très calme et abrité du vent. Aliki et Nikos sont des hôtes charmants. Aliki est intarissable sur les endroits à visiter et les bonnes tarvenes du coin. Tous ses tuyaux se sont avérés très bons. Nikos quant à lui nous à alimenter en concombre, courgettes et fruits de son jardin. La plage du Kokkod Bay à Kotsounari abritée du vent est un bon plan pas trop loin (5 min en voiture).
