Our eight beautiful homes are located in the traditional, tranquil village of Limnes in the midst of olive groves and roughly a 10 minute drive from the town of Agios Nikolaos. The homes are all newly built offering a luxurious and comfortable visit. They are airy, open and bright. Herbs, fruit trees and vegetable gardens from local, heirloom seeds surround these homes. Guests can pick and enjoy this unique organic produce in the comfort of their home. Located in the village, local tavernas and cafes are at walking distance in this quiet, serene location. Each home can comfortably house up to 6 people. There is complete privacy in all living areas. There are two bedrooms, a living room, a WC on the ground floor, a bathroom upstairs, a kitchen with an indoor and outdoor eating area, a storage room equipped with a washing machine and ironing board, private patio areas and parking space. Each home has its own herb garden. Only the vegetable gardens are shared by other guests too to cut organic produce for preparing food.
We like to greet our guests upon their arrival and show them around their new home and inform them of all the activities they can do in the surrounding areas. These, depending on the season, include hiking in nature, visiting local producers, participating in guided meditations, participating in a traditional 'raki' distillations, learning how to make traditional dishes from a local chef, herb harvesting, olive picking, taking a stroll in the village, cycling and swimming in the sea which is a ten minute drive away. We also run an organic Cretan herb farm which you can visit and so the kitchen and bathrooms are filled with organic herbal products for our guests to indulge in! We also offer herbal workshops for guests who would like to learn how to make herbal infused oils, smudge sticks and delicious herbal bites! We always leave our contact details incase needed and guests are then independent throughout their stay.
Guests can get around by bicycle or car and explore the numerous nature trails and small villages in the surrounding area. In the winter time there are running rivers in the area and so lush green vegetation and old stone windmills can be explored in the summer time. There is daily and frequent bus service for surrounding areas too. We provide more information on these activities upon arrival for guests that are interested. Delicious organic produce is available in many shops in the villages, ranging from dairy products to traditional almond drinks.
Our homes are ideal for families with children and babies, groups of friends, people that love being in nature and in a peaceful non-touristic traditional village and pet owners. They are also very near a lively town. The town of Agios Nikolaos and the nearest beaches are only a ten minute drive away.
