About the property

Paved courtyards on the ground floor and 2 large terraces on the first floor.  

The house is located in a small traditional village in Tzitzifes which consists of two neighborhoods built on two elongated hills that descend from the mountain to the plain and separated by a ravine. At the bottom of the ravine is a very old stone fountain with trees. The houses are masterfully built of stone on the successive levels of the two hills thus providing a beautiful traditional settlement. The view to the opposite villages are impressive. The village's name seems to come from the jujube tree, which grows in the area. . The current picture of the village follows the general image of the Greek province. It produces oil, wine, carob and abundant livestock products. It is worth emphasizing that even the Tzitzifes was the only village of Crete Karabasis production (dafnelaiou) which is used for therapeutic purposes and kalaisthitikous and is now produced in small quantities by a single successor of this popular tradition. There are several enoiikiazomena accommodations and village are 3 dairies and three tavernas with an abundance of visitors - where you can taste and daily chareitai tradition of the place.

The possibilities for excursions are many, and offer visitors the opportunity to reveal very impressive panoramas. Also, Crete is considered as a paradise for hikers. Those who enjoy such trips will find many possibilities: walking or cycling The location, altitude and range land and climate of Crete, have blessed this place with a great diversity of flowers and plants.

Why STELIOS chose Apokoronos

exceptional natural beauty, excellent accomodation !!!

The accomodation is located in exceptional natural beauty. It has unobstructed views of olive groves and woods of the area. especially at the time when the weather allows, the terrace is excellent for anyone sitting for hours and relax. the place is ideal for walking or bike ride. in the village there are two restaurants. otherwise you may need someone to cook, they can easily be found on taps, which are about 10 minutes by car. the ACCOMMODATION has all the amenities you can expect a fully equipped kitchen, you do not really missing anything. all kinds of kitchenware and amenities were at our disposal. easily accommodating two couples in separate rooms (one in mezzanine and a down to the ground floor bedroom) and 2 other people (even adults) can sleep in the living room mezzanine and ground floor respectively. owners very helpful and friendly, we were greeted with a lit fireplace and various homemade pastries. cleanliness in all areas was exemplary. is a destination that will surely like to visit again.

The accomodation is ideal to visit from spring until late autumn, to be able to enjoy both the party, and to take advantage of all the comforts and amenities of home. this does not of course mean that it is not a good choice in winter.

What makes this house unique

Paved courtyards on the ground floor and 2 large terraces on the first floor. View of the White Mountains and the Apokoronas valley. Located in a garden of 1700 sq.m. fenced with gates and private parking spaces in over cypress forest, oak, carob and olive trees. Very close to beaches Georgioupoli, Kalyves and Almyrida.

We had a fantastic stay here - definitely fine. Authentic cretan village, friendly people and a really fine tavern "Tsitsifia" nearby.

For those who are looking for an authentic stay with some contact to the people living here but without touristic events exactly the right thing. For all others: stay in Kalives, Almyrida and Georgioupoulis and make use of ai-offers...
