About the property

Beautiful Stone House close to amazing beaches, Minoan Sites and Psiloritis

The house can comfortably accommodate a family of up to 4 members on it's two levels. It is also suited to accommodate a party of two couples (the living room could be separated from the rest of the house and serve as a convenient convertable bedroom).

On the ground floor there is a cozy patio, serves as a gathering spot, that leads to a spacious living room with attached kitchen and bathroom. On the first floor is a fully equipped bedroom, attached to a large sunny veranda with great views of the village and the impressive Psiloritis mountains.

In addition to the normal equipment, there are a washing machine, dish washer, large fridge-freezer, free WiFi, smart TV with multi channel satellite and Netflix connections and also a Bluetooth audio device.

The house is situated in a quiet neighborhood, just a minute walk from the charismatic main square of the village with cafes and shops.

Vori is a lively traditional village, in the center of Messara Valley. It has several traditional cafes (Kafeneio), an excellent taverna, bakery, pharmacy, mini market and some other shops.

About Mark

Hi,

My name is Mark. My wife Sonia and myself purchased this beautiful stone house in late 2016. During the winter of 2017, it was extensively renovated to adjust our living standards and tastes, while at the same time, we cared to maintain it's traditional Cretan character and feel.

The house is very cozy, comfortable and fully equipped.

We are enjoying it very much on our frequent vacations in Crete and truly believe that our guests will enjoy it as well...

Waiting to host you soon in "House Potami"!

Sonia & Mark.

Mark purchased this house in 2016

Nettes Haus in sehr nettem Dorf

Schönes Domizil und ein sehr nettes Dorf mit sehr netten Nachbarn. Für meine Kaffee Liebende Frau war die vorhandene Bodum Kanne etwas zu klein
