A luxurious village house (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1 toilet, sleeps 7) located in Piskokefalo, a lively village 4km from Sitia beach . The village of Piskokefalo is ideally located for exploring the north and south of eastern Crete. The village itself has a number of traditional restaurants as well as a grocery shop, all within walking distance from the house. It is located on the main road so you will hear traffic noise.
The Space:
The house was built during the final decade of the 19th century. It was recently restored thanks to the work of excellent engineers and the passion of the owners. It is located in a commanding position relative to the village of Piskokephalo, Sitia, in Crete, some 3 km from the sea. It is a veritable gem for our demanding clients.

The façade of the 200-m2 living room is surrounded by a small garden with beautiful red hibiscus flowers. The building did not have a modern roof, floors, or separation walls in the bedrooms while the owners were engaged in a wide-ranging restoration process that took plenty of care. During the restoration, the owners made sure that the original splendour of their ancestral home came through. Today, the house's original mural paintings have been saved and anoint the walls with old embroidery. During your stay, you'll be able to feel the ambiance of a hundred years of history. Feel how the art has been collected and displayed with the carefully preserved architecture of the house.

The kind owners have taken care of every detail, in order to ensure that their clients benefit from the experience of a convivial home. They constantly strive to build a relationship based on trust with a faithful client base that comes back year after year for restful vacations.

The house's entrance is via a courtyard with a traditional stone oven, barbecue, and large patio table. On the ground floor, there were traces of the dining room, the wine production area, storage for grain and oil, and the old kitchen. This area now holds the living room/study with a large fireplace made with the original stones. There are two living/dining rooms as well as a modern kitchen with a decorated stone wall. There are also two toilets, one indoors and one outside in the courtyard. Upstairs, the old living room has been made into a master bedroom with a double bed and a private bathroom. There are two other bedrooms with comfortable beds and a shared bathroom between them.

In the open space around the stairs leading up to the first floor, a single bed can be placed for one more guest. The windows on the upper level open onto a balcony and a terrace with a discreet view of the valley and the mountains. There is also a third covered terrace next to the decorated fireplace where you can read during the evening hours.
