Welcome to Romanati house! A 19th century boutique house, located in the picturesque and tranquil village of Pefki, in south-eastern Crete, overlooking the sea and the gorge of Pefki. Just 10 minutes away from the beach, the house is the ideal holiday retreat for those who seek inspiration, authenticity and tradition combined with comfort.
Recently renovated, the house combines its original features and its traditional charm with the recent trends in design and modern amenities to make your stay comfortable and memorable.
The house is spread in two levels. On the lower level you find the living / dining room, the kitchen, one bedroom, an extra room/bedroom, the utility/laundry area, one bathroom (shower), the balcony and the veranda. On the top level there is a large ensuite bedroom and a large terrace with stunning views.
It is fully equipped with cooker, oven, dish washer, washing machine, WI FI, stereo, air-condition in the two main bedrooms and fireplace.
Pefki traditional village is a hideaway gem. White houses built close one to another, cobbled little streets - or "kalderimia" - filled with bougainvilleas and flowers, scattered little churches hidden in luring trails amid olive groves and cypresses overlooking the Libyan Sea.
Amphitheatrically set with spectacular views and only 10 minutes drive to the coast, Pefki village is handily close to the restaurants, bars and shops of Makry Gialos, the golden beaches and attractions of south-eastern Crete but at the same time it enjoys the serenity and authenticity of the village life.
Crete island is a world of natural wonders. Sea-sculptured coasts, fabulous sandy beaches and deep gorges are contrasted by palm-tree shaded coasts, rugged mountains, silvery olive groves and cedar-covered sandy islets.
An impressive and magnetic landscape imprinted by each era of the island’s rich history and culture: ancient ruins of the glorious Minoan civilisation, Byzantine churches, Venetian fortresses, historic monasteries and the very unique Cretan customs and traditions.
Crete cannot described with a pen. You have to breath the Cretan air, listen to the folk songs, see the lively local dances performed by agile dancers, drink the local drink “tsikoudia” or “raki”, taste the cretan cuisine, laze under the Cretan sun!
