About the property

At "White Mountains" or "Lefka Ori" on the Omalos plateau (at 1040 m Alt) and only 5 km away from the entrance of "Samaria Gorge", there is a traditional 19th century Shepherd's house.

The house has been renovated and consists of two (2) main spaces, housing two (2) bedrooms (one room with double bed and one with two single beds), a toilet with a beautiful marble shower, a living room that can hosts up to 2 more persons on collapsible couches and a kitchen.

The kitchen is the only main space of the house connected to “National Electric Network” for serving electric appliances and therefore charging your electronic devises. During the night, candlelights will be the main source of light in and out for the rest of the house.

We also had utilized the old rainwater storage tank to a small pool.

- In a house that stands in harmony with the "National Park " that surrounds it, the traveller will be having the chance to come close with nature, stimulate his or her senses and discover the authentic Cretan side of Kreta.

The nearest beach is 45km away at Sougia village on the South coast of Kreta.

Samaria gorge is 5km away.You can also visit the Agia Ιrini's gorge(Sougia's gorge) if the Samaria Gorge seems to you a long distance to cross.

calme et confortable

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes venus avec nos deux enfants et nous avons beaucoup aimé notre séjour. C'est une maison confortable dont l'intérieur est décoré avec goût. Son aspect authentique se marie parfaitement avec l'ambiance pastorale des alentours. On y dort au calme et, le matin, les enfants étaient heureux de voir les chèvres sous leurs fenêtres. La chaleur en été dans l'après-midi y est plus supportable qu'à la mer. L'hôtesse est très aimable/prévenante et parle très bien français.
