This summer home in the most beautiful city of Crete has a rich history and charm!
70sqm, 2 bedrooms with air conditioning, 7 Beds (several double and single beds), gallery and interior patio, fireplace, stone floor, idyllic with vine arbor covered courtyard, central, yet peaceful location, 150m to old harbor and town beach for refreshing morning bath as well as a charming village square with numerous taverns
Build by the Venetians about 500 years ago as part of a monastery right behind the old port, it was later used by the Turks as a residence. The Turks expand the smaller of the two rooms on the upper floor by a typical wooden oriel. Then 100 years ago, the Turkish inhabitants in this idyllic village atmosphere Splantsia district are replaced by Greek refugees from Smyrna (now Ismir). Our Greek-German family bought the house about 15 years ago in completely desolate condition. We lovingly modernized it and kept the original style, so that the charm of the house is still preserved today.
The house has a living space of 70 square meters. On the ground floor a living/kitchen room with a fireplace and a bathroom with a washing machine and hot water boiler. Upstairs are two bedrooms with several single and double beds. Additional space for beds is integrated on the gallery on the upper part of the large bed room. Likewise upstairs the house has a inside patio covered with an vine arbor. The patio has an open shower and space for two more beds, mostly used by us for siesta. Finally the most beautiful room of the house is the courtyard right in front of the house. It is also covered by a vine and bouganvilla arbor. This idyllic courtyard you will leave only just for shopping or for a refreshing bath at the 150m distant city beach 'Koumkapi'.
