Agia Paraskevi House Rental Photos and Description

In traditional Cretan fashion, this semi-detached cottage is built directly onto a rocky buttress that forms the far end of the Village Square giving it a hobbit like ambiance and reducing the building work by a quarter!

Outside the spacious, partially covered terrace is neatly paved in local stone and in summer becomes an extension of the living area. A screen of pink and white oleanders provides privacy from the neighbour's terrace, whilst a lovely old carob tree bestows welcoming shade in the afternoon, providing a great spot to sit with a cool drink and watch the world go by, such that it is!

Agia Paraskevi : Hidden away on the south coast between Agia Galini and Moni Preveli and a good 21/2 hours drive from Chania Airport, the tiny hamlet of Agia Paraskevi, stands high on the hillside looking out over the Lybian Sea. Virtually abandoned for 25 years, the village has over the past decade been slowly restored and brought back to life and now provides the setting for a unique holiday experience and the ultimate place to unwind! Agia Paraskevi has two churches and a dozen houses, dotted haphazardly over a wide area of the hillside demarcated by rocky bluffs and olive groves sloping downwards towards the sea. All the houses are built in traditional style from local stone and wood, with terracotta tiled roofs, but all are different shapes and sizes and have their own particular character, based on the lie of the land and the vision of their individual owners!

Apart from the very occasional passing car, Agia Paraskevi is amazingly peaceful and by day you can clearly hear the tinkling of goat bells on the hillside a kilometre away. By night it's even quieter and the sound of silence is almost tangible, save for the occasional soft hoot of a Skops Owl, or the distant murmur of the sea breaking on Ligres beach, 2km away down the hill. With no large villages let alone towns nearby, the sky at night is a further revelation with a vast and dazzling canopy of stars, seemingly close enough to touch, like baubles on a cosmic Christmas Tree.

Local Information: : The sandy Ligres beach with its' own small taverna, is just 5 minutes drive away and there's an excellent fish taverna on the little harbour in Agia Fotia, a little more than 15 minutes drive, via the village of Kerames, where there's also a taverna and a small mini market. Beyond Ligres beach to the east, are the beaches of Trio Petra and Agios Pavlos, approx. 20 ­ 25 minutes drive, partly on a dirt road. All the beaches on this stretch of the south coast are long and sandy and relatively quiet even in high season but still with a good half dozen strategically placed tavernas. For banks, shops and a little more civilisation, the hill town of Spili, with its' handsome Venetian fountains, is approx. 30 minutes drive. Walking ­ In spring and autumn the area is excellent for walkers and there are footpaths to Ligres and Trio Petra beaches and also to Agia Fontini and even distant Moni Prevelli.
