Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Lassithi

This design country mansion has been recently restored into a luxury vacation house with exquisite taste and personal air and character.

The house is 185 m2, enclosing a 60m2 courtyard with a 100m2 top terrace. It can accommodate up to 8 persons, since it has 5 main rooms, three of which are double bedrooms, a sitting room with Venetian style fireplace, a dining room with two couch-beds, a spacious kitchen, and 2 bathrooms. It is furnished with original neoclassical furniture, art objects and paintings of contemporary Greek artists.

All rooms open either to the courtyard or the terrace, capturing breathtaking views to the sea.

It can function as a spacious, unique house for a demanding family or for two families or friendly couples, as the bedrooms accompanied by own bathrooms are laid at the ends of the house with communal areas in between.

The village, folding down a slope behind the city of Ierapetra, is dating from Venetian times, having kept its architectural and agricultural character. Listed in a European network as one of ten most beautiful villages of Crete, is renowned for its healthy climate (dry and cool in summer, warm and sunny in winter), very peaceful environment and splendid views to the sea.

LONG TERM WINTER RENTAL (November-April): The "warmest and sunniest" part of Greece turns this house in Anatoli into an ideal place for long term sojourns. The house is adequately equipped with central heating and fireplace.

Vacances de rêve !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué la maison de Ioanna Dorovinis (Pasiphae House) la dernière semaine d'avril pour 6 personnes (3 adultes, 3 enfants) et y avons passé un séjour exceptionnel.

La maison est très jolie, bien agencée et dispose de tout le nécessaire. La vue des terrasses sur la mer de Lybie est magnifique (si l'on excepte le patchwork blanc des serres près de la côte, mais la Crête n'est pas qu'un lieu touristique, il y a aussi des gens qui y travaillent). Elle est située à flanc de montagne, à Anatoli, un magnifique petit village en partie abandonné et restauré pour en faire de très belles maisons pour les vacanciers.

Un restaurant est située à la sortie du village, ainsi qu'une minuscule épicerie. Le dimanche matin, un marchand de légumes passent dans la rue principale.

Anatoli est situé à quelques dizaines de kilomètres de Ierapetra et Agios Nikolaos (si l'on emprunte les petites routes qui serpentent entre les montagnes), où l'on peut trouver tout ce dont un vacancier à besoin.

Les températures sont un peu fraîche la nuit, mais la maison dispose de radiateurs, d'une climatisation réversible et d'une cheminée.

Les habitants sont d'une politesse et d'une gentillesse rarement rencontrées ailleurs, à l'image de Ioanna, qui nous a appelé pour prendre de nos nouvelles durant notre séjour, et qui très régulièrement nous envoyait des e-mails pour nous inviter à découvrir petits restaurants typiques et plages tranquilles. Un grand merci également à Mme Vasiliki, petite fée discrète qui s'est occupé du ménage et de l'intendance pendant nos absences.

Je vous conseille d'aller explorer les alentours à pieds, et pourquoi pas de monter jusqu'à la chappelle Stavromenos, assurément notre meilleur souvenir. Une ballade magnifique parmi les oliveraies et les herbes aromatiques crétoises jusqu'au sommet où vous pourrez apercevoir les deux côtes de la Crète.

"DEVO DIRE CHE LA PROPRIE...

  • 5 of 5

"DEVO DIRE CHE LA PROPRIETARIA E SUO MARITO, SONO VERAMENTE 2 PERSONE SQUISITE- LA CASA E' MERAVIGLIOSA,MOLTO GRANDE E ARREDATA FINEMENTE E CON GUSTO, IN QUANTO LA SIGNORA JOANNA E' UN BRILLANTE ARCHITETTO. INOLTRE GODE DI UN PANORAMA MOZZAFIATO !!! IL PAESINO, E' UN PO' DISTANTE DAL MARE,CIRCA 15 KM, MA NE VALE LA PENA PER UN SOGGIORNO DI VERO RELAX."

Autoroute 95 kl from Iraklion to Ierapetra (via Agios Nikolaos). Local route 12 kl from Ierapetra to Anatoli. Inside the village signs on the main road lead to the house.

The location is ideal for all season¢s vacation, amidst a green and sculptured rocky environment of outstanding natural beauty, that offers peace and tranquility of mind and senses, while being equally distanced from the Eastern (gulf of Mirabello) and Southern (Ierapetra) most beautiful, sandy-blue flag- beaches of Crete.

Daily cultural excursions to archaeological sites (ancient cities of Lato, Zakros, Gournia ) Byzantine and Venetian monuments (Toplou Monastery, Panagia Kera medieval church, Spinaloga Island,) as well as to Natural Monuments (Idaion Andron archaeological cave, Golden Island , Vai palm forest ) can be combined with swimming to picturesque gulfs (Agia Fotia, Agia Gallini, Achlia, Kakkos Bay-all supported by small taverns)

Swim in crystal blue waters of Voulisma Beach (Istron Bay) or Galini and Agia Fotia Bays east of Ierapetra. Kakos Bay hotel (next to Gallini Beach) is open to the public with swimming pools (adults and children).Picturesque taverns are behind every beach. Explore the whole south east coast till Zakros with unexpected landscapes, splendid beaches and small villages

Enjoy local Cretan Cuisine inside the village "Arhos" taverna and "Krassia"'s taverna in Kalamafka (neighbor village)and "Asteria" taverna 6 km towards Ierapetra. At the waterfront of Ierapetra (near the casle) "Napoleon"'s restaurant offers excellent and certified Cretan Cuisine.

Take relaxing afternoon walks around Anatoli along the road to the cemetery or above the village along t
