Lithos Traditional House - Ontas, Creta

Bedrooms 1
Property type house



About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3

Apokoronas is one of the most historic and beautiful areas of Crete, a landscape of wild mountains and fertile valleys. It was the place where emperors and lords of the Byzantine Empire would reside to enjoy the wealth and beauty of the land. In many places the Cretan architectural tradition developed from the 16th century onwards, has been influenced by Venetians.

Lithos, a small traditional house dating from 1800 and open to visitors since 2006 is located in the fine village of Tzitzifes, with close access to roads to the north and the south of Crete. The village has a kafeneion and there are two traditional Cretan restaurants about 700 meters from the house.

Lithos comprises two separate apartments built in local architectural style and offering all modern comforts. The use of natural materials such as wood and stone takes you back to other more simple and romantic times, allowing you to escape from your daily routine.

Both apartments have kitchen, air-conditioning, TV, bathroom and wood-burning stoves for winter. One of them has an old - style oven and a wine press. Outside there is a large vine-covered courtyard and a swimming pool.

Located: Tzitzifes Apokoronou - Chania (28 km from Chania, 32 km from Rethymnon)

Category: Traditional House

Apartments: 2 apartments (2 rooms -3 beds - kitchen - bathroom)

Indoor facilities: Bathroom with bathtube, kitchen, refrigerator, air conditioning (free), TV, old-style oven, coffee machine,maps and informations about the area.

We look forward to welcoming you here on your holiday.

While hard to find the Lithos House is a jewel. I would recommend it to those who want to experience small town Crete.

Une belle semaine dans un village crétois

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié vivre pendant une semaine dans une maison typiquement crétoise où la cour intérieur nous donnait accès à une petite piscine et chaises longues. De quoi relaxer au retour de nos balades. Sa localisation nous a permis de rayonner dans plusieurs villes et villages avoisinants et découvrir leurs particularités. La maison étant qu'à trois kilomètres de la ville de Vrisses, il était facile de se procurer tout ce dont nous avions besoin. Les propriétaires ont été attentionné à notre égard et nous y avons séjourné pendant cinq jours. Si vous souhaitez vivre une belle expérience crétoise, n'hésitez pas. Nous on en garde un précieux souvenir.

Baignade en pleine montagne

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons apprécié cette magnifique maison restaurée traditionnelle avec sa treille pour les repas et cette piscine inespérée vraiment féérique au milieu d'une montagne qu'il faut parcourir à pied.

Calme et reposant, il faut avoir la chance d'avoir des voisins, dans la location jointive, sympathiques et discrets.
