About the property

Two bedroom - two bathroom, 'loft style' two store traditional property

An old stonehouse dating back to 1900 characterized traditional and preserved by the ministry of environment, located in the hart of the picturesque Listaros village . The two floor 'loft style' property, a fine example of Cretan rural architecture, was entirely renovated and transformed into a holiday house offering its guests all conveniences that guaranty relaxing and comfortable accommodation.

For its renovation the basic construction materials of the area were used - wood and stone. The original plain cubic form was maintained in order to preserve the “character” of a typical cottage of the broader region and Listaros. At the same time, a lot of attention was paid to its equipment in order to meet the needs and the standards of a comfort and modern accommodation. The house is fully equipped with all necessary amenities and utensils and from its first floor balcony offers a spectacular view to Psiloritis Mountain and the Libyan sea.

The house due to its characterization and to luck of lighting it has an open plan 'loft style' construction and therefore its two floors do not offer sound isolation.

Listaros lies at the edge of the western point of mount Asterousia. The village with the magnificent view offers the last passage from Mesara Plain to the Asterousia mountain and the south coast and Libyan sea. Records reveal that the village exists since 1577.

Toller Ausblick

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben die Zeit das schön renovierte altes Steinhaus genossen. Als Ehepaar war es uns groß und komfortabel genug. Auch die offene Raumgesraltung fanden wir ok. Die Aussicht vom Balkon ist besonders bei Sonnen Untergang atemberaubend. Leider gibt es im Ort keine fußläufige Restauration mehr. Die Vermieterin begegnete uns freundlich und herzlich.
