Welcome to the house of nature colours!
Enjoy your cup of coffee or taste the excellent traditional Cretan cuisine in the tavern next to the beach, while feeling the ocean breeze, listening to the sound of the sea and taking joy in the view of the Cretan sunset. Have a swim in the fantastic beach of Scaleta or in the crystal clear waters of Geropotamos beach, and spillies nearby.
We wish you an unforgettable stay with the gentility and hospitality of Cretan tradition.
The building and location
The new fully-equipped villa 120 τ.μ. decorated in minimalistic design and paying tribute to tradition and the natural environment is located on the hillside of the north coast of Rethymno, in an area called Scaleta. Scaleta is 13km away from the center of Rethymno in the east. The house is only 350 m away from Scaleta beach. The ideal location of the villa with a panoramic view to the gulf of Rethymno and Chania offers tranquility and relaxation to its tenants. Our guests can enjoy the Cretan sun ¸taste the fresh vegetables of the organic garden, explore nature around the area and entertain at the same time.
The house was built with materials friendly to nature and humans in order to improve his bioclimatic behavior and healthy stay.The external hand-formed luteinizing plasters ensure breathability of materials and reconciliation with the colors of the surrounding. In the interior, the technique of the hand-formed pressed mortar under which the walls are made offers intimacy and warmth to anyone who decides to experience it!
Natural, warm and earthly materials cover both the internal and external floor as well as the pergola in front of the living room, a place where you can find pleasure in having your breakfast or relaxing, while watching the idyllic sunset. The large openings of the living room allow nature to "penetrate" the building giving the impression that the tradition speaks to contemporary life. During the mild winter of Crete, you can delight in the warmth of the energy-generating fireplace and relax under the sound of the olive logs crackling in it.
The apartment is perfectly situated in a place to access easily the lovely beaches and to explore all the other interesting sites that central Crete has to offer.
Its location is terrific for visiting the whole central region of this beautiful island, where the real Cretan spirit is hidden!
The apartment is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and relaxing to spend time in.
While entering the house there is an open area, consisting of a huge living room with 2 sofas, a fireplace, and a fully equipped kitchen. On the left side, there is an area designed as a study with a library, a sofa and a table-desk with laptop for your needs. The porch under the pergola is designed to offer direct view to the sea. It is a comfortable and shaded place to relax while enjoying the sunset every evening.
On the same floor there is a bathroom with a shower and a bedroom with 2 beds, which can be transformed to a double one if needed. This room has a large balcony with view to the east side of the house. There is a vegetable garden in front of the balcony, where you can taste home-grown vegetables.
The large master bedroom, which has its own wc, is on the sub-layer, higher than the rest of the house, with a view to the east garden, too.
The house can accommodate 5 people in beds and up to 7 people, (a sofa bed easily converted into a 2 bed if necessary), or 3 adults and 4 children aged 6-12 years.
Baby cot and high chair for lunch is available on request.
Independent heating system and 3 air conditioning units.

Hi, I am Litsa
Born and grown up in Crete like my parents.
I studied mathematics and computer science at the University of Athens.
After many years of studying and working in Athens, I finally decided to return back home, in Rethymno and live in the nature, near the sea and under the Cretan sun!!
My motto in life is "Read a lot, work hard, make the most of life, caring for each other, and enjoy while doing so!"
It is important to exchange experiences, knowledge and cultures!
I enjoy meeting people from around the world with different cultural background, offering them warm-hearted hospitality and giving guidance on how to find information, which will help them make their choices.
So, traveling and hosting can help develop our personalities and educate us, as well.
At home you will find an Electronic tourist guide with information and suggestions for various attractions (beaches, canyons, lakes, monasteries, museums, historic centers, archaeological sites, traditional villages, etc.).
Discover the wonderful island of Crete while having as a starting point the “cretasunset”.
I wish you to have unique experiences and great holiday in Crete!
Looking forward to welcoming you!
