About the property

Charming Wooden Eco-house Sougia. In unspoiled nature, with distant sea-view

Charming wooden Eco-house near Sougia (3 km).Built in the summer of 2017. Between the villages Sougia and Moni on the southwest coast of Crete, situated in an olive grove on a hill, surrounded by mountains, stands this brand new wooden Eco-house in unspoiled nature, with a distant sea view. Offering peacefulness and silence, yet very near to the crystal clear waters of the Libyan Gulf and all the amenities offered in Sougia village. There you will find a long pebbly beach, one of the most beautiful beaches of Greece and plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. It is also a perfect starting point for mountain hiking as it is connected to the E-4 hiking route.

As the house is surrounded by several acres of olive trees, in a very quiet environment, completely private, it is a perfect spot for people looking for true relaxation, silence and privacy. The house is completely made of wood and electricity is provided through solar energy. The house is approx 53 sq m with an extra storage room. It comprises a large living room with open kitchen. There are two bedrooms. In one bedroom you find a double bed (140 x 200 cm). In the second bedroom there is a single bed which can very easily be converted into a double bed (160 x 200 cm). All beds come with double orthopaedic mattresses and several pillows to choose among. Behind the house there is a garage on top of which the solar panels and the hot water system are mounted. As we named our house Eco-house, we try to keep it as "green" as possible. Except the solar energy we also provide our guests with fresh well water so they don't need to buy and use plastic bottles which are not being recycled yet in Greece. The house is painted with eco-paint, both in -and outside. We do not use pesticides in our olive grove either.

About Corinne Falagaris

I have lived on Crete for more than 20 years and I love it! It is wonderful any time of the year. It's amazing to see all the different landscapes, the change of atmosphere when you travel around the island. Nothing is ever the same. And there is always more to discover. Crete's people and its impressive nature inspire me and I have been writing short stories about it for many years. In 2013, my first book was published, Kalimera Pefki. If you decide to visit Crete and stay in my house, I would be delighted to give you any information you need to make your stay a great one!

Corinne Falagaris purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Corinne Falagaris chose Kandanos Selinos

As the house is located in an olive grove, surrounded by old and some younger olive trees, in a very quiet environment, completely private, it is very suitable for people looking for silence, privacy and seclusion. The house is completely made of wood and electricity is provided through solar energy. The house is approx 50 sq m with an extra storage room. There are two bedrooms. In one bedroom there is a double bed (140 x 200 cm). In the second bedroom there is a single bed which can very easily be turned into a double bed (160 x 200 cm). All beds come with double mattresses and several pillows to choose among. Behind the house there is a garage on top of which the solar panels and the hot water system are mounted.

What makes this cabin unique

The perfect place to relax! The only complete house for rent in and around Sougia. Unique wooden house, including a fully equipped kitchen. Wonderful cozy atmosphere. Serenity. Silence. Nature. Surrounded by mountains. Distant sea view. Very near the village of Sougia with all its amenities and the wonderful beach and sea but in the house on the hill you are away from any noise, in peacefulness. Solar energy.

Eco: As we named our house Eco-house, we try to keep it as "green" as possible. Except the solar energy we also provide our guests with fresh well water so they don't need to buy and use plastic bottles that are not being recycled yet in Greece. The house is painted with eco-paint, both in -and outside. We do not use pesticides in our olive grove either.

Great starting point for mountain hikes (connected to E-4 hiking route) and visiting ancient sites.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW! What a lovely lady indeed! They werent expecting any guests as I booked last minute. Corinne totally went out her way to make our stay as enjoyable as it could as sleeping at home. We are hikers and all our clothers were dirty from the week of hiking. Corinne graceous offered to wash our clothes and have them dried in time for our next multiple day hiking adventure. Speechless! The house itself in very unique, quaint and newly build. Gorgeous views and very close to a spot-on, must endulge Taverna. Corrines husband Giorgos, being a mointain man himself, even broadened my perspective on the hiking terrain in the immediate location of the house. Two outstanding, down to earth human beings!!!

A beautifull oasis in the olivegroves, with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay in this very welcoming place, everything shows a loving and caring hand. The kitchen is nice and well equiped, and the double mattrasses on the beds are very comfotable. Many places to sit and relax in- or outside, in the sun or in the shadow of an olive tree. I liked the views of the mountains so much and the millions of stars at night, the feeling of being part of nature. I made some great walks and Sougia with the crystal clear sea and good restaurants is only a 5 min. drive away. Corinne Falagaris is a very nice and helpful person and my stay was a fantastic holiday.

A Dream

  • 5 of 5

This charming place is a little up in the mountains.By car five minutes away from Sougia bay. , Surrounded by mountains you can catch yet a glimpse of the sea.Nature speaks to you up there.Wonderful olive trees all around , fresh water from a source that the owners supply you with help you save buying plastic bottles.A perfect spot for a personal retreat.The house itself smells of wood and the light but yet cosy atmosphere makes you just happy. Everything of furniture to the dishes has been lovingly chosen by the owners who are very friendly. All you need ist there. And bubbles, a tame sheep, a funny lovable creature keeps you company. I would visit any time again.

Mitten in der Natur und doch so nah am Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in dem so liebevoll eingerichtetem Eco Haus von Corinne sehr genossen. Es fehlte uns an nichts. Das Haus liegt mitten in der Natur, mit Blick auf das Meer und die Berge und bei Nacht auf einen gigantischen Sternenhimmel. Schön ist auch die Nähe zum Meer und zu dem Dorf Sougia, wo man sich in netten Restaurants und Bars kulinarisch verwöhnen lassen kann und wo sich alles zur Selbstverpflegung kaufen lässt. Wir haben uns in dem Haus schnell zu Hause gefühlt, was auch an dem so herzlichen Empfang von Corinne und ihrer Fürsorge lag. Wir werden ganz bestimmt wiederkommen !!!!

Villa Wittgenstein - Ruhe und Ganzheit

  • 5 of 5

Unvergesslich werden diese drei Wochen sein, gerne wären wir noch geblieben.

Corinne (Buchautorin) und Giorgos sind ganz wunderbare, warmherzige, erfahrene Gastgeber, die uns viele wertvolle Informationen zu Land, Quellen und Leute geben konnten. An alles war gedacht, obwohl wir die ersten Gäste in diesem bezaubernden Holzhaus waren. Feine, geschmackvoll und liebevoll ausgesuchte Details taten unserem Sinn für schlichte Estetik gut.

Das Haus auf großzügige Grundstück, bestückt mit vielen Olivenbäumen, liegt auf einem Hügel, umsäumt von hohen Bergen.

Von der schattigen Terasse aus öffnet sich der Blick, Sougia und das immer wieder andersblaue Meer erahnend. Tief beeindruckend ist der nächtliche, so klare, so weite Sternenhimmel.

Inmitten von Natur, Ruhe und Kontemplation ist es möglich, schnell in das kleine, lebendige Sougia zu gelangen und wieder zurück.

So gerne nächstes Jahr wieder!!!!!!

Petra und Christoph

Endroit parfait

Maison tres agreable, au milieu de la nature, parmis les oliviers. On a aime.... absolument tout, de l’acceuil chaleureux de la proprietaire a la beaute du lieu, en passant par la presence de bubble, le mouton qui a fait la joie des enfants, tout etait absolument parfait. La maison est tres proche de la mer (Sougia), un village tranquille on les gens etaient tres sympa et on l’on mange tres bien. Un grand merci a corrine pour ces vacances cretoises inoubliables.

Fantastic !

  • 5 of 5

This house is a dream house, lost in the middle of olive trees. The wooden-house is comfortable, beautiful furnished (with both traditionnal and modern stuffs), and eco-friendly. The terrace is such a great space to spend time, looking at the surrounding mountains, at the sea or at the stars. We had the feeling to be alone, while it only takes 5 minutes to reach Sougia.

We were travelling with our two young children (1 and 3). They also appreciated their stay, running around the house, watering the flowers and providing water to the sheep.

And the owner, Corinne, is the sweetest host. A smiling person, very enthousiastic, happy, present but never invasive. She filled the fridge up with stuffs for the breafast and shared with us olives, olive oil and wine (the best red wine we drank in Crete :-)) she produces. Everything was so perfect! We stayed in a lot of different places in Crete but this one has something very special !

The house stands in an olive grove on a hill with a distant view of the Libyan Gulf, surrounded by mountains, in a serene atmosphere, in silence and peacefulness. The village of Sougia is just 3,5 km away with all amenities you may need and its long pebbly beach and crystal clear waters. From here you can make wonderful hikes in the surrounding mountains, to ancient sites (Lissos, Eliros etc.) or make a boat tour to more remote beaches.
