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 Crete

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.
