About the property

Two bedroom - two bathroom, 'loft style' two store traditional property

An old stonehouse dating back to 1900 characterized traditional and preserved by the ministry of environment, located in the hart of the picturesque Listaros village . The two floor 'loft style' property, a fine example of Cretan rural architecture, was entirely renovated and transformed into a holiday house offering its guests all conveniences that guaranty relaxing and comfortable accommodation.

For its renovation the basic construction materials of the area were used - wood and stone. The original plain cubic form was maintained in order to preserve the “character” of a typical cottage of the broader region and Listaros. At the same time, a lot of attention was paid to its equipment in order to meet the needs and the standards of a comfort and modern accommodation. The house is fully equipped with all necessary amenities and utensils and from its first floor balcony offers a spectacular view to Psiloritis Mountain and the Libyan sea.

The house due to its characterization and to luck of lighting it has an open plan 'loft style' construction and therefore its two floors do not offer sound isolation.

Listaros lies at the edge of the western point of mount Asterousia. The village with the magnificent view offers the last passage from Mesara Plain to the Asterousia mountain and the south coast and Libyan sea. Records reveal that the village exists since 1577.

Toller Ausblick

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben die Zeit das schön renovierte altes Steinhaus genossen. Als Ehepaar war es uns groß und komfortabel genug. Auch die offene Raumgesraltung fanden wir ok. Die Aussicht vom Balkon ist besonders bei Sonnen Untergang atemberaubend. Leider gibt es im Ort keine fußläufige Restauration mehr. Die Vermieterin begegnete uns freundlich und herzlich.

Charaktervoller Ruhepol an gutem Standort

  • 4 of 5

Meine Frau uns ich wohnten im Juni drei Wochen in dem laut Türbogengravur ursprünglich 1871 errichteten, geräumig ausgebauten Haus mit großer, beschatteter Terrasse auf dem Dach der Wohnküche (Balkon des oberen Schafzimmers). Zum Abendessen, wenn die tiefstehende Sonne noch unter das Terrassendach scheint, wählten wir den schattigen Platz unter der großen Bougainvillea im umfriedeten Vorhof.

Auch im "Zentrum" von Listaros ist es absolut ruhig, auch tagsüber sind meist nur Vogelrufe, entferntere Eselsstimmen oder Zikaden zu vernehmen. Zu zweit haben wir uns in dem Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. (Bei paralleler Nutzung der beiden Schlafräume wäre allerdings die "akustische Gemeinschaft" hinzunehmen.)

Die Küchenausstattung wies auch für den Bedarf von zwei Personen zunächst gewisse Lücken auf, die wir aber ohne großen Aufwand und teils mit Hilfe von Vermieterin Sylla schließen konnten. Selbstversorger finden (fast) alles Nötige für den täglichen Bedarf im nahe benachbarten Sivas (gefühlt 5 Min. mit dem Kfz). Wenn man nicht selbst kochen möchte, stehen dort auch mehrere Restaurants zur Auswahl.

Nicht zuletzt war Listaros für uns auch ein guter Standort, um uns zahlreiche Sehenswürdigkeiten und (auch ruhige) Bade- und Schnorchelplätze des zentralen Südkreta zu erschließen.
